Sunday Post: A quiet week

Connecting with others to talk about books plus a little about our personal lives

Sunday-Post

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

A quiet week here in Illinois with my daughter. Papers to sign, of course, for our house in Iowa. My husband is still in Iowa and is busy moving boxes and furniture to our garage, selling stuff like the riding lawn mower which we needed for our large yard (but won’t need for a small yard in Indiana), donating stuff to charity stores and throwing things away.

Birthdays = birthday cards

I brought card making supplies to my daughter’s and I’ve worked on cards the last few weeks. Lots of birthdays so lots of birthday cards!

A trip to Indiana

Next weekend my daughter and I are heading to Indiana to see my younger daughter, take a look at our new house and visit with other family members. It will be great to see them for the first time in over a year.

Sunday Post: A look back at February

Weekly meme to talk about books and a little about my personal life

Note: I haven’t done a Sunday Post since last February. I found this Post which should have posted on March 1, but I think we were traveling or I didn’t have internet available. Anyway, I thought I would post the “Personal Life” section which talked about what I had done in February. I was struck by how different life is now.

Next week I hope to post a regular Sunday Post for what I’m doing and reading.

Personal life

What I did in February

My Ragdoll kitten turned six months old and will be a year old in September. Elf is a senior girl at over 10 years old.

I made cards for birthdays, thank you’s and Valentine’s Day. (I’ve made lots of cards to send during the pandemic.)

My daughters made a surprise visit to us over Valentine’s Day and it was wonderful to see them. (Now we wouldn’t surprise each other like that!)

Toward the end of February we went to Seattle to visit our son. Before we left for Seattle we knew there was a Covid 19 case in Seattle, but had no idea what would happen in the months to come. As you can see from the photos we did quite a few activities with lots of people around us. By the time we left Seattle, Covid 19 was in nursing homes there and I felt we should quarantine for two weeks when we returned to Iowa. Before the end of our two weeks the whole of Iowa and the rest of the U.S. were quarantining.

I’ll see you all next week and look forward to seeing what you’ve been doing.
