Sunday Post: In Illinois this week

weekly meme to talk about books and a little about our personal lives


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

Our yard continues to give me lots of joy. The flowers at the left are ones we planted in the spring and are autumn blooming. Such a beautiful, bright yellow.

Another busy week

Our carpet gets installed next week and we discovered we had to remove either our drawers or take everything out of the drawers before the installers will move things out of rooms as they work. That meant a bit more work!

At the end of the week I came to my Illinois daughter’s home with our two cats. We’ll stay here all week while the carpet is installed and our driveway gets some repairs. It’s great to see my daughter and the cats are settling in.

Olaf–One year old!

With everything going on I forgot to mention that my kitten is now one year old and is now a cat! Olaf loves to play and even brings back toys I throw for him. He weighs about 16 pounds now.

Blog Life

Another week I didn’t get to many blogs or many comments. I hope this next week I can visit and find out what other people have been reading and doing.
