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!
Another relatively quiet week, punctuated by several trips to town and one to the vet. I had my physical therapy evaluation, and we’re waiting for our insurance to give the go-ahead. On Friday, I took Tasha to the vet, and the news wasn’t good. The original lesion (tumor) under her tongue doesn’t look too bad — still there, but not inflamed. But in the space of just over a month, a second lesion has sprung up and become quite inflamed. This one is below the molars on the outer side, against her cheek, and clearly has been bothering her — she has been complaining more and eating less. The vet injected the usual steroids to try to calm the inflammation, and we’ll just have to see how it goes.

What I’m Reading/Watching
What I’m Reading: I finished rereading the Three Sisters trilogy by Nora Roberts, a series I always enjoy. I also read A Murder for the Books (Victoria Gilbert) (review), which I realized I had as an ARC and had never read. (Oh, well, I can count it toward the Blogger Shame challenge.) It was just as good as the second book (review), which I read last week and reviewed this week. And I read Vision in White, a Nora Roberts romance that I hadn’t read before. It’s the start of a quartet; I plan to read the others as I can fit them in. I’m still slowly working my way through Year of Wonder: Classical Music for Every Day (ARC.)
I finally finished listening to: The Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley, which I absolutely loved! So naturally, I plunged right into another Susanna Kearsley book, The Shadowy Horses, and I’ve been devouring it. I’m nearly half-way through already, thanks to several commutes to town as well as some knitting and spinning sessions.
Watching: Kenneth Brannagh’s Murder on the Orient Express. I enjoyed it, with reservations. I’m working on a short review. We also watched an episode of Father Brown, and rewatched the first episode of the Inspector Alleyn Mysteries, “A Man Lay Dead.”
