The Sunday Post #39 (9.7.14)

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. I'm also going to link this up with Sheila's It's Monday post over at Book Journey

I spent this past weekend at my sister's house helping her pack up her house. She is moving at the end of the month. I didn't mind at all as it meant I got a whole weekend with my 1 year old god-daughter and boy oh boy is she a cutie pie!!! We had lots of fun and she was quite helpful, putting things in boxes, sorting her toys, and just making us laugh! It was also fun spending time with my sister and brother-in-law, too! 

Of course, that meant I didn't get much reading time in, but I did get to start a new audio on the drive to and from their house - they live about an hour and a half way and each time, due to traffic, it took closer to two hours. But I actually didn't mind, since the audio was so good - have you read or listened to Dear Daughter yet?

Have a great week everyone!!!

  2. I am sure she was a helpful little stinker, kiddos that age are so cute and curious about everything. She will think they are all new again when they are unpacked at the new place :)

  7. I have Dear Daughter and The House We Grew Up In...and can't wait to start reading them...soon.

    Isn't it more fun to pack up someone else's house? I have often thought so. I wouldn't like that long drive, though. You are a great person to help.

    Here's MY WEEKLY SUNDAY/MONDAY UPDATES POST

  10. Sounds like you had a great week. It is nice to spend time with family even if there is work involved. I like audiobooks for the car but I have such a short commute that I can't do them. Have a wonderful week!
