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!
A very happy Easter to those who celebrate it, and happy spring to everyone in the Northern Hemisphere!
We had a fantastic time last weekend celebrating my Mom’s birthday. It was a laid-back, family-togetherness house party for three whole days, and it was wonderful. None of us wanted to leave.
This week has been busy with rehearsal and all the Holy Week services to sing. I’ve been at church every night since Wednesday, plus this morning — but I love it. Easter is one of my favorite seasons in the Church calendar. And the weather is really cooperating this year. It’s been gorgeous and sunny and just warm enough (low 70s) without being too hot. The flowering pear trees are past peak, but the redbuds are beautiful and the cherry blossoms burst into full bloom yesterday. The forsythia are also rioting, and my daffodils are trying, but I think the bulbs are getting too old, or maybe the moles got to them. I need to plant some more this fall. …I realize that made it sound like we have flowering trees around our house; we don’t, but there are tons in the area, so I see them when I’m driving around. Someday, I will plant some redbuds, since they do well along the edge of the woods.
Next week I’ll be working really hard on an indexing project, plus getting rehearsal CDs ready for my choruses. And I’m feeling the itch to spring-clean!

What I’m Reading/Watching
I re-read Anne McCaffrey’s The Rowan. I finished The Cracked Spine (Paige Shelton; ARC) and The Clue in the Stew (Connie Archer; ARC), as well as Do Not Bring Your Dragon to the Library (Julie Gassman, ARC, picture book — very cute.) I read a short story, “The Marriage of Mary Russell”, in preparation for The Murder of Mary Russell (Laurie R. King, ARC), which I’m reading now. I’m also starting Because of Miss Bridgerton (Julia Quinn.) And I’ve been listening to a Great Courses lecture series, Great World Religions: Judaism — I’ve got 2 lectures to go.

Purchased for Kindle
The Adventures of Geraldine Woolkins looks so much like a Beatrix Potter book that I had to try it. And I had almost the entire Iron Fey series, except this one and The Iron Traitor; now I’m only missing The Iron Traitor. I’ve read one of them, and plan to read the rest of the series once I have the set.
Have a wonderful week, and happy reading!
