Sunday Post: Mid September, but still hot

Weekly meme to talk about books and a little my personal life last week


Kimberly hosts the Sunday Post each week. I like to take part because it gives me an opportunity to look back at last week and forward to next week in both my personal life and my blog and book life! I also love to see what other people are doing and what books everyone is reading.

Personal life

Labor Day is over, kids are back in school–and now it’s mid September!

We had cooler weather last week , but next week the temperatures are forecast to be close to 90 degrees. I love the cooler temperatures of fall so I’m looking forward to more cool weather!

Back from Indiana

I spent a week in Indiana visiting one of my daughters and got back during the middle of this week. I had lots of fun visiting with her and her two Labrador retrievers. They are such fun happy dogs. (And my daughter is pretty fun, too…lol)

Chicago wedding

This next week we’re driving to Chicago for a niece’s wedding. It will be fun to see lots of family members and see our niece and her fiance get married. They seem very happy!

Blog life

You may have noticed that during the last month my blog was gone for a few days and then back and then may have disappeared again. It’s finally back though I do still have a few things to tweak.

I spent a lot of time over the last month deciding whether to keep my self-hosted blog or to try to move the blog to I wrote a post about that earlier in the week. I published a number of posts this week and am working on more posts for the future. It feels good to be back.
