Sunday Post: Moving along

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

We are in the final stretch for getting our house on the market on April 2. Our two cats and I are in Illinois with my older daughter so my husband is in charge of getting the yard and house ready. It sounds like he’s doing a great job getting the final details done. My cat is still sick. Apparently it takes a lot of time for the pancreas to heal. We’re still not sure she will get better. I think the next week will tell us more.

New house

The first picture is taken from what will be our driveway. So this is the view we’ll have from the front of our house. I love sunsets! And we’ll have sunrises to see out the back of the house.

The second picture is the front of our house. We finally have a firm move-in date of mid-May. The builders are moving ahead quickly.

Blog Life

Not much on my blog the last couple of weeks. With getting together what I need for the next couple of months, nursing my sick cat, moving to my daughter’s for about six weeks it’s been hectic. At least I’m fully vaccinated now. And I hope I’ll have time to visit more blog friends.

Sunday Post: In Illinois this week

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.
