Sunday Post: First snow of the season

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

First snow of the season

We’ve had our first snow of the season–just a tiny amount, but we had a tiny amount twice this last week! So not only snow, but cold weather, too. I’m mostly staying inside since I also have gotten a cold and don’t feel very well.

Another courthouse!

I love Iowa’s courthouses. The above picture is from a county close to us–Dallas County. Iowa has 99 counties and they’re all quite small. And the population in many of the counties is small, too, but so many of them have beautiful large courthouses. I love taking pictures when we happen to drive by one of them.

  1. Snow! I hate the stuff – is that early for you, or about normal? We are still having a very mild autumn/early winter with temperatures still regularly in the 50s when I’d now expect frosts and bitter winds. Long may it continue! I hope you have a good week, Jan:)


    1. Yes, the snow has come early this year. We had a small amount three times in the last couple weeks and now there’s a big storm coming through the Midwest with areas getting anywhere from 1 to 6 inches of snow! And then very cold temperatures for the rest of the week. I hope you’re still getting nice weather, Sarah.

  2. It snowed when I was in Iowa over Columbus Day but didn’t stick and it was cold. It’s going to be cold here this week too, 40s with 20s at night. I am loving my garage and heated seats in the car, and my MN clothes. In 2014, I did the Harley ABC challenge and it involves taking photos of your Harley with different town, county and state places which includes courthouses. I enjoyed the 2013 challenge even more which was photos with railroad depots. Those are some architecture I enjoy seeing. I even found some great depots in Canada when I rode there.

    I wish you a wonderful week. Stay warm and enjoy your reads!

    1. That’s so great about the Harley challenges, Anne. I hadn’t heard of them before, but I think it’s really great that you have to find courthouses, railroad depots or other interesting buildings depending on what is decided for that year.


    1. I like snow if I don’t have to drive in it…lol. Because snow is expected in the Midwest of the U.S. usually the roads are cleared quickly and most drivers are careful.


    1. I’m looking forward to Pupcakes! I was happy when it went on sale. I’m wanting to read some snowy, wintery and Christmas books soon and if there are dogs in them even better!


  3. that was so funny about quitting in the middle of the book because this has happened to me a lot lately too. I think it may be hormones. Probably not, but I blame everything on hormones 😉 Have a good reading week!


    1. I’ve had a number of books in the last couple of months that just aren’t exciting me. Sometimes I power through in the hopes I get more engaged, but sometimes I just have to stop reading. 😦

  4. Awesome picture! The courthouse is so cool! I can’t believe you’ve had snow already… I’d love to see some snow but we are never guaranteed to see any at any time of year. Sigh.
    Hope you have a good week!


    1. Some years we get more than other years, but we’re always going to get some. It is early to get snow around here and it’s been unseasonably cold, too. I think this may be a colder and snowier year.
