Sunday Post: Back home next 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

First frost this week and cool and blustery after that.


We spent the last week in Indiana. We stayed with our daughter and when she had to go out-of-town we’re watching her dogs for her. My husband spent several days getting leaves off her yard. Most of the leaves have fallen from the two trees I showed last week. Amazing the difference a week can make!

We also celebrated our daughter’s birthday. I made a birthday cake and we had a firepit fire. It was a cool night–so perfect for a fire.

My daughter’s hot water tank started leaking this week. We were glad we were here for a plumber to come and replace the hot water tank. An electrician is also coming to do some work for her while we’re here.

Back home

We’re headed back home in a few days. It will be great for the cats and us to get home again! The new carpet is installed and the driveway work is done so we need to talk to our realtor about what more we still should do to get our house ready to sell and when to put it up for sale.

New kindle

I’ve had a few problems with my Kindle and my cover had started falling apart so it seemed like a great time for a new Kindle. During the Prime Days that Amazon held last week I saw a great deal on a new Kindle. Serendipity!

And I’m loving my new Kindle cover!

Blog Life

It was a busy week so I didn’t get as much done on my blog as planned. No Connect 5 Friday post. And not as much blog visiting as I had planned. I’m planning to work on posts, comments and blog visits the early part of the week before we leave for home. I know it will get busy after we get home. I also want to get a few weeks ahead with posts. We’ll see how that goes!

I got some good books this week so I’m eager to read faster!
