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 snow, sleet, and freezing rain on Wednesday, so my husband stayed home… but I had to work. I turned in an index Wednesday afternoon, and spent Thursday and Friday choosing music for the spring concert and sending out emails about rehearsals, which start next weekend. And I’ve been spinning and knitting a little in the last few days.
Have you been following the romance plagiarism scandal that erupted this week? If you haven’t heard about it yet, I wrote a post sort of summarizing what happened, and updated it Friday and Saturday. (Link below.)
Today I will be unplugged for at least some of the day, attending a funeral for the (adult) son of friends from our old church. I can’t begin to imagine what they are going through; it must be devastating.

What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I finished up my binge reread of the Arcane Society series (Jayne Ann Krentz and Amanda Quick; I read the two crossover Jayne Castle books from the series a few weeks ago when I was rereading the Harmony series.) Now I’m working on Rhys Bowen’s The Victory Garden, A Stash of Her Own edited by knitter Clara Parkes, and I’d Rather Be Reading by Anne Bogel. Oh, and yet another Jayne Ann Krentz reread.
Listening to: I finally finished Founding Mothers: The Women Who Raised Our Nation by Cokie Roberts. It was good, and Roberts reads it well (as you would expect from a former NPR reporter.) But there are so many people in it, with so many similar names, that I had a hard time keeping track of who was who, and who was related to whom. I think it would have been easier if I’d been reading a physical book, and could have checked the index or previous chapters whenever I wasn’t sure.
Watching: We finished Season 1 of Eureka and started Season 2. I really like the show; it’s quirky and lighthearted, even though any new person that turns up has about an 80% chance of ending up dead (often in very weird ways.)
