Sunday Post: October is here

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


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

One of our trees is beginning to show some autumn color!

Autumn is here! The days are cool and we have temperatures in the 40’s at night. I love it!

This is the month for pumpkins, pumpkin spice everything, spooky stories. Except I don’t buy pumpkins anymore, I don’t like pumpkin spice in everything and I don’t like being scared! Still I do love October. But I love it for the clear blue skies, the cool days and nights, for the leaves turning color, for the windy, rainy days when the leaves fall.

World Card Making Day

Yesterday was World Card Making Day and though I didn’t make any cards yesterday (I spent my time cleaning my craft room!) these are some of the cards I’ve made in the last few weeks.

Illinois and Indiana

Next week we’re headed to Illinois and Indiana. Our Indiana daughter is having a “For the Love of Fall” party next weekend so we’re going to help her get ready and then we’re going to celebrate fall with her! We’ll stop on the way and visit our Illinois daughter. She will be coming to the party, too.

Blog life

I wrote some posts this week and even wrote a few for the weeks ahead. I’ve also enjoyed catching up with blogging friends this week. It’s good to be back to regular blogging and I’m glad I moved from a self-hosted site to
