Sunday Post: First snow of the season

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

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

First snow of the season

We’ve had our first snow of the season–just a tiny amount, but we had a tiny amount twice this last week! So not only snow, but cold weather, too. I’m mostly staying inside since I also have gotten a cold and don’t feel very well.

Another courthouse!

I love Iowa’s courthouses. The above picture is from a county close to us–Dallas County. Iowa has 99 counties and they’re all quite small. And the population in many of the counties is small, too, but so many of them have beautiful large courthouses. I love taking pictures when we happen to drive by one of them.

What I stopped reading

Echoes in the Sand by Shannon Baker — (stopped reading at about 35%)

  • Shannon Baker is an author whom I usually enjoy reading, however in this book the main character irritated me until I finally decided to give up. But I think it may just be me! I’ve had a few other books that have irritated me recently…lol.

Personal life

We’ve had our first snowfall of the year–only about three inches–and it’s beautiful.

I had a busy week with appointments, putting away Christmas decorations and getting the house back in order for the new year.

Television

This week we watched more Agatha Raisin and the new season of Brokenwood on Acorn TV. On Netflix we’re working our way through the first season of Dead Like Me. 

Blog

The Feed Your Fiction Addiction blog has a “Master List of 2019 Reading Challenges.”  And I spent way too much time looking through various challenges to figure out what I wanted to do this year. I do like reading challenges–especially if I read a few books I might not have otherwise. I’ve decided on four or five challenges and may do a couple more before the end of the month! There’s even a challenge for “Reading Challenge Addicts!” Maybe I should sign up for that. 🙂

I’m working on completing 2018 book reviews that are mostly written already and trying to make sure I get the 2019 reviews in the works. Still working on visiting other blogs to see what you’ve all been up to!
