Sunday Post: Oct 19


The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

I like this meme because it gives me an opportunity to take a look back at last week and forward to next week in both my personal life and my blog and book life! I also like to see what other people are doing and what books everyone is reading. This is a great meme to take part in every week and I thank Kimba for hosting it!

Near Boothbay, Maine–one of the coastal inlets at dawn

My husband and I went to Maine for a long weekend and so I didn’t get a Sunday Post done last week. The Maine trip was wonderful.

I’m continuing to love the mysteries I’m reading. And I’m getting books from the library when I can–and reading them…LOL. I have a hard time sometimes when I have to put an item on hold and wait for it when I could just click “buy” on my Kindle. I used to wait for books all the time when I used the library more. Instant gratification really has spoiled me!

This week I’ve spent a great deal of time working with my sisters-in-law to help plan a bridal shower for one of our nieces. The hard part is that we live all over the U.S. so we’ve had e-mails going back and forth. The shower is during Thanksgiving when many of the family is together, but this Thanksgiving we are celebrating an engagement, a christening and the bridal shower so finding the time and place is complicated. The Aunties as we call each other also are sending a statement to everyone that we support and celebrate Meaghan and Caitlin. Not everyone  in the family is on board (though most everyone is).

One of my sisters-in-law is visiting this weekend so I’ll be busy. We will work a little on the shower activities, too!

I managed some reading and blogging through it all.
