Sunday Post: Autumn color and enjoying the sun

Sunday-PostKimberly 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.

Some of our trees are starting to turn color which I love. Other trees in the area are already losing leaves. We had more rain this week and several roads and bike paths near our rivers are closed. The above photo shows a closed road we often drive on our way home. Our house is near the river, but is on a hill (thank goodness). We had a couple dry days and one part of the day with some sun. I loved seeing the sun after a week of cloudy days. In the above photos Donnie is loving the rare sunny day by rolling in the grass! When it’s raining he really doesn’t want to go outside…lol.

We’re taking care of Donnie for our son for at least another week or two. He’s on the East coast this week. We’re taking Donnie with us when we go to our daughter’s housewarming and birthday party this next weekend.

I’m still working on getting posts scheduled ahead. I visited a few favorite blogs last week, but kept getting interrupted.

The weather turned cooler this weekend just in time for the start of Autumn. I’m loving the cooler mornings and this weather should stay around for the next week or so at least.

Busy week

My allergies are still causing problems. I’m especially having trouble with my eyes watering and itching which makes it hard to read and write reviews. We’re taking care of my son’s mini dachshund for a few days while he goes to a job interview. Donnie misses my son, but luckily he likes me so he spends a lot of time on my lap or following me. We’re enjoying having him here. He’s a sweet little dog.

Television

We’ve started watching the first season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on Amazon and we’re enjoying it a lot. And we’ve got one or two more episodes of The Great British Baking Show left to watch on Netflix.

Blog

Another week without too much activity here. I’m hoping that with cooler weather my allergies won’t bother me as much and I’ll get more done.
