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!
We had a good week with Robin: we saw several movies (at home and in the theater), played games, laughed a lot, got together with friends, and celebrated Mr. Bookwyrm’s birthday (late) by seeing the American Shakespeare Center’s production of As You Like It at the Blackfriars Playhouse in Staunton, Virginia. It was wonderful, as every show we’ve seen there has been. Robin left early this morning, headed back West. We’ll get together again in September for our niece’s wedding.
I plan to spend this week catching up on as much as I can: laundry, housework, decluttering, writing, blogging, taking photos, and spinning. And resting, and maybe some light exercise. My doctor is sending me for physical therapy for my shoulder (which is now partially frozen) so hopefully I can start that soon as well. I’m also hoping to make it up to DC for Naomi Novik’s Spinning Silver tour, but we’ll see how it goes. I’ve got at least another week off from indexing, and I want to both enjoy the free time and make the most of it!

What I’m Reading/Watching
What I’m Reading: I finally finished Herons Landing (JoAnn Ross; ARC), which I started a while ago but set aside because I was in the wrong mood at the time. I also reread Sharp Edges by Jayne Ann Krentz, as well as My Enemy, My Ally by Diane Duane. Now I’m reading Shelved Under Murder (Victoria Gilbert; ARC) and The Romulan Way (Diane Duane.) I’m still slowly working my way through Year of Wonder: Classical Music for Every Day (ARC.)
Listening to: The Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley, which I’m loving. I’ve been listening on Spotify to the Year of Wonder playlists that go with Year of Wonder: Classical Music for Every Day And we enjoyed a few podcasts on our way to and from Staunton yesterday: Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me and one from The Allusionist about the Scots language.
Watching: We watched The Black Panther, which Mr. Bookwyrm and I missed when it was in theaters. It was amazing — good screenplay, terrific acting, fantastic set and costume design. We also screened The Incredibles, which, incredibly, we had never seen. Robin had, and insisted we watch it before going to see The Incredibles 2 the next evening. Both Incredibles movies are a lot of fun… but I’m glad we didn’t have to wait 14 years between films like most of the fans!
