The Sunday Post is hosted by the wonderful Kimba, the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news, recap the past week, take a look ahead, and showcase our new treasures — I mean books!
Happy Easter to those who are celebrating it, and to those who celebrated Passover, Pesach sameach!
I am exhausted from all the singing this week: a long rehearsal Wednesday night, services on Holy Thursday and Good Friday, and the two-and-a-half-hour-long Easter Vigil on Saturday. (Actually, I’m exhausted anyway, as you’ll see from the third paragraph.) I ended up skipping this morning’s Easter service; I was just too wiped out.
This afternoon, assuming I’m up for it, we are going out for Easter dinner with two other couples from church and a few of their teen and young adult children. I’m looking forward to a nice afternoon. And it’s just as well that I didn’t have to cook and clean this week, as I’m still behind on indexing due to. . .
You may remember that I had something like the flu a couple of weeks ago? Well, my energy hasn’t bounced back. Turns out I have [drum roll, please] mono. Yes, really. At my age. It would almost be funny, if I weren’t so tired most of the time. I’m told it may take up to a couple of months to get back to normal energy levels. So if I’m not around quite as much as usual, that’s why. I’m probably off taking a nap.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I’m still working on The Lost Kingdom of Bamarre (Gail Carson Levine; ARC), and I finished reading Serenity Harbor (RaeAnne Thayne; ARC.) I also reread Driving Force, The Danger, and Dead Heat by Dick Francis (Kindle; all three purchased recently.)
Listening to: Hidden Figures, by Margo Lee Shetterly.
Watching: We watched Interstellar, which I had not seen before but Mr. Bookwyrm had, and followed it the next night with a rewatch of Apollo 13. After that, we rewatched The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe and started Prince Caspian (which we’ll probably finish tonight.)

Dick Francis books rarely go on sale, and when they do, it’s not by much… but I’ll grab them anyway.
