Sunday Post: We’ve sold our house!

Connecting with others to talk about books plus 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

One of my favorite rooms in our Iowa house–faces south with lots of sun in the winter

We put our house in Iowa up for sale on Friday. I think it looked great. Our realtor got great pictures of the house for potential buyers to see. We ended up with eight appointments on Friday and received five offers on the house. Several were for more than the asking price. I was amazed we had so much activity the first day. We chose the offer we thought was best and our house is now under contract! Wow! Friday was a busy day.

Cooking with my daughter

My daughter and I cooked together this week. We made macaroni and cheese which is a recipe from my childhood and that I made while the kids were growing up. It’s one of those recipes I make without a written recipe though I have written it down for my kids to give them the framework. I had my daughter make the macaroni and cheese and just gave advice when she asked. Her mac and cheese came out great. I’ve put my own spin on my mac and cheese through the years. It’s different from what my Mom made and I expect my kids will put their own spin on it, too. So fun to see her excited to make macaroni and cheese!

My daughter also showed me one of her favorite recipes this week. It’s a slow cooker recipe for butter chicken. She found the original recipe online, but has changed it quite a bit to suit her tastes. It’s easy and yummy!

Blog Life

I visited a few blogs this week and read a little. However, I find myself easily distracted by everything happening right now in my personal life!
