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!
Last Sunday’s concert was wonderful! I was very proud of my young singers, especially the Youth chorus (teens, with a few adult mentors), who had a beautiful blend and performed wonderfully, even on their two long and challenging pieces. And it’s always a joy to sing in the adult chorus. We’re blessed with a wonderful director who really inspires us.
The rest of the week was less fun. I woke up Monday with a sore throat; by mid-week it had moved into my sinuses and upper chest. It’s just a bad cold, but given how tired I was to begin with, it has really wiped me out… so much so that we called off the Thanksgiving-dinner-for-two we had planned, and just spent the day resting. All I really wanted to eat was soup or eggs, anyway.
Unfortunately, being sick all week has put me behind on pretty much everything, from work to laundry to the blog. On the plus side, though, Mr. Bookwyrm was able to change our day-after-Thanksgiving Mary Poppins tickets to later this week, when hopefully I’ll be feeling better.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: As I often do when I’m not feeling well, I binge-read this week, or rather reread. This time, since I had just read the ARC of Robin D. Owens’s Heart Sight, I decided to reread her “Celta” fantasy romance series. I didn’t include all the covers above, but I reread the first eight books this week, beginning with Heartmate. Then I read book 9, Heart Journey, for the first time. (I hate the cover for that one; it doesn’t match the book well at all.) And I started book 10, Heart Search. I plan to get back to Terminal Alliance (Jim C. Hines; ARC) once I feel better, but A Scandal in Battersea (Mercedes Lackey) had to go back to the library before I finished it. I’ll try to borrow it from the library in my parents’ town over Christmas break, since the hold list at my library is still pretty long.
Listening to: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. I’m nearly done. I’ve been knitting while listening, and my nephew’s scarf is nearly done as well. (“How long did it take you to knit that?” “Oh, about 36 chapters of Harry Potter…”*)
*Not really, though. I did other things while listening to the book, and sometimes I knit while watching TV. But timewise, it probably works out about the same.
Watching: Star Trek: Discovery and Father Brown.
