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!
I’ve been working hard , and will be for the next several weeks: one index is due this week, and the other about 2 weeks later. We celebrated my birthday quietly, with quiche and cake and Netflix. Mr. Bookwyrm gave me the Wonder Woman DVD, and is taking me to see Mary Poppins (the musical) at the Virginia Repertory Theater in late November. (They did the fantastic production of In the Heights that we saw in June.) Robin sent me a wonderful card, and a beautiful, soft teal cowl. I took a selfie to send to her. It’s not a great picture of me, and the sun was behind me so there’s lens flare, but it’s a good photo of the cowl!
The Orkin guy came Thursday, and found a live snake in one of the glue traps in the basement—ugh! It wasn’t very big, but it shook me up pretty badly, especially because he didn’t warn me before he showed it to me. (I’ve got a bit of a snake phobia.)
Something on Sunday
Something on Sunday is hosted by Gin Jenny at Reading the End. The idea is to counteract the gloom and anxiety many of us feel by “writ[ing] about something that kept you on your feet that week… something that matters to you.”
I’m always surprised and touched by the outpouring of birthday wishes on my Facebook wall each year. It lifted my whole week! Though I sometimes find Facebook annoying or even depressing, I can only be thankful for the way it has helped me stay in touch or get back in touch with people from both my past and my present. And hearing from so many of them on my birthday brought joy to my heart.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I put The Silver Branch by Patricia Kennealy-Morrison aside for the time being. I reread The Liar, the Key trilogy, and Whiskey Beach, all by Nora Roberts, and also read The Search and The Three Fates by the same author. Those two count toward The Backlist Reader Challenge.
Listening to: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.
Watching: A couple more episodes of Father Brown. We didn’t get around to last weekend’s episode of Star Trek: Discovery, so we have that to look forward to this week.
