Happy Pi Day! (Sunday Post – March 14, 2021)

March 14, 2021 Sunday Post 15

The Sunday Post is hosted by the wonderful Kimberly, 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!

This Week

The crocuses are out, so spring is officially on its way. And today is Pi Day! We got a frozen apple pie when we did the grocery pick-up this week, so we’ll be having pie tonight in celebration.

Work has been rough this week. I haven’t had time for blogging; I’ve barely had time to read, spin, or knit. Yesterday I gave a program for my Spinners and Weaver’s Guild meeting on how to use Ravelry. (On Zoom, naturally.)

What I’m Reading/Watching

Reading: I reread the Complete Arrows Trilogy (aka the Queen’s Own trilogy) by Mercedes Lackey, comprised of Arrows of the Queen, Arrow’s Flight, and Arrow’s Fall. I have a feeling I’ll be bingeing most of the Valdemar novels this spring. After more than 30 years, the author is finally writing a series on the founding of Valdemar—the origin story I’ve been waiting for all this time. The first book comes out this summer, and I have already pre-ordered it.

Listening to: I started The Shell Seekers, by Rosamunde Pilcher. I haven’t read it in 20 years, and was delighted to discover that the audiobook is narrated by Hayley Atwell. I also listened to one or two podcasts, but as I said, I haven’t had much free time.

    Hope you get some time to enjoy your favorite hobbies soon. 🙂 Those crocuses look beautiful. It warmed up here and the flowers were coming out but now we’re supposed to have a week of snow. Spring will come eventually.

    Yay pi day! I actually remembered to bake a (mini) pie for pi day this year, so that was good. (Mini pie because due to the weirdness that was last year’s Pandemic Christmas, I had leftover pie makings tucked away in the freezer. Just enough for a mini pie!)

    Happy reading! I hope the foundation of Valdemar books are everything you hope they will be.

    Oh the flowers are beautiful! My daffodils started blooming and I went out and cut some this weekend. I’m so glad I did because we had a huge storm last night and I’m sure they would have all been destroyed. Happy pi day! I’ve been craving apple pie lately and should have made one! I bet The Shell Seekers is amazing in audio. I haven’t read it in far too long though I am trying to reread some of her older smaller books. Have a great week!
