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 flew out to Utah on Tuesday to spend a week with my dad and stepmom. It’s been lovely to see them, and to visit with a few of my cousins who live here as well. I did have to bring my work with me, so I haven’t had as much time to just sit and chat as I’d like. I’m looking forward to turning the current project in tomorrow. Between visiting and working, I didn’t get any blogging done. I hope to get back to a more regular schedule in January.
Later this week, I’ll fly down to New Mexico to visit my mom and stepdad, our daughter Robin (who is living with them), and my sister’s family. Mr. Bookwyrm will join me there for Christmas. Things I’m looking forward to (besides being with my family, which always tops the list): seeing Star Wars: The Last Jedi; viewing the “River of Lights” festival in Albuquerque; spinning on Robin and Owl’s shared spinning wheel; playing lots of games like Carcassonne (a board game) and Pounce (a card game); plenty of time to knit; and listening to Christmas music.
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.”
Just being with my dad and stepmom has been wonderful. They are in their late 80s but still going strong, despite some health challenges along the way. I treasure my time with them.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I’m still on a re-reading kick; I reread Robin McKinley’s Spindle’s End and started Beauty, both of which I love. I’ve also started Of Murder and Men (Lynn Cahoon; ARC) for a tour I’m doing this coming week.
Listening to: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I’m about 20% in.
Watching: Not a thing, due to work and travel.
