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 got a new dryer early this week, so we’ve been catching up on laundry. And Friday night, we drove down to Richmond for dinner and a bluegrass concert—Frank Solivan and Dirty Kitchen. If you like bluegrass, you should check them out; they’re really good. Solivan is an amazing mandolin player, and the other three band members (banjo, guitar, and bass) are terrific musicians, too. Their latest album, Cold Spell, was nominated for a Grammy, but they still like to play small venues, which is how we got to see them.
I started a new occasional feature on the blog, called WIP Wednesday (for “work-in-progress.) The meme is the brainchild of Nicole at Book-Wyrm-Knits, who also reviews books at book-wyrm-reads. It’s where I’ll share my knitting and (eventually) spinning projects. I’d like to post at once or twice a month, more often if I’ve got a finished project to show off or have started something new.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I reread the first three Ravenels books by Lisa Kleypas, starting last week with Cold-Hearted Rake (review) and continuing this week with Marrying Winterborne (review) and Devil in Spring (review). Then I plunged joyfully into the sequel, Hello Stranger (ARC), which I loved. I’ll be reviewing it for the blog tour on its release day, Feb. 27. This week, I plan to get back to my three interrupted reads: Cat of the Baskervilles (ARC), The Problim Children (ARC), and A Scandal in Batersea (library.)
Listening to: I finished up Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix yesterday. Next up: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
Watching: Yes, well… we managed to squeeze in one episode of Star Trek: Discovery, which means we’re only two episodes into the spring run, and three episodes behind. As of tonight, that will be four episodes… We also tried to watch the Olympics, but NBC won’t let us stream it without verifying our cable subscription, and since we don’t have one, that didn’t work out too well.
