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!
The concert is this afternoon! Yesterday’s rehearsal went very well—not perfectly, but I always worry if the rehearsal is perfect. Better that they peak at the performance. ETA: The concert went really well. I was so proud of “my ” kids–they sang beautifully and did indeed peak on concert day!
Robin got home late Friday night; it’s so good to have her home!
I came down with a bad cold on Tuesday, which sapped a lot of my physical and mental energy and kept me from reviewing the books I’d planned to post on Thursday and Friday. On the other hand, before that I was making progress with Blog Ahead, so in future I will have a few posts “in the can” to pull out when I need them.
Next weekend is my college reunion. I’ll be gone from Friday morning through Monday night. I doubt I’ll have time for much blogging, so I probably won’t post News & Notes, and the Sunday Post might be iffy as well.

What I’m Reading/Watching
I read The Hidden Oracle (Rick Riordan) and started New Order, a book on decluttering that I got from the library last week. I tried reading Nora Roberts’ The Obsession, but it triggered too much anxiety—I don’t do well with books about serial killers that put you into the killer’s head. So despite my fondness for Roberts, I gave up on that one. Instead, given my cold, I went for familiar books: reread The Wizard of London and Home from the Sea (click link for review), which are the immediate prequels to A Study in Sable which I read the previous week. I need to get back to Wishing Day (Lauren Myracle, ARC), but I’m having trouble staying focused on it (probably due to the cold. It’s an easy read, just not holding my attention right now.)
In audio, I finished the Great Courses introductory course to Christianity and started on Great World Religions: Islam. In TV, we finished season 8 and started season 9 of Poirot, both of which are just two TV movies each.

Purchased for Kindle
I’ve read the Agatha Christie before, as well as Lackey’s Home from the Sea, but my copy of the Christie was falling apart when I got it, and I didn’t own the Lackey and wanted to read it this week. (Kindle impulse buy!) The other three are books I’ve not yet read.
