March 21, 2021 Sunday Post 9

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

I turned one project in and started the next. I upgraded my indexing software from version 6 to version 8, and there are a lot of changes to how things work, particularly when it comes to keyboard shortcuts, so there’s a steeper learning curve than I was expecting.

For St. Patrick’s Day, I made corned beef and cabbage with potatoes and carrots. On Thursday, I made the weekly loaf of fresh bread (with a little help from the breadmaker.) I love the smell of baking bread! This afternoon, I’ll be participating in an online reading of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, in which I will be playing Hero. (If you’re unfamiliar with the play, despite her name, Hero is one of the female characters.)

    What a fun idea to do an online Shakespeare reading! Is it a group of friends, or something more formal?

    I watched a filmed performance of King Lear (for Reading the Theatre month) and really enjoyed it. I think I may look up some more plays I can watch, since there is no telling when I’ll be able to see one in person again.

    Hopefully once you get adjusted to all the new features it makes everything go faster but it definitely sounds frustrating! We didn’t end up doing much for St Patrick’s Day. My husband hates corned beef but I do usually try and make a stew of some kind and soda bread but it just didn’t happen this year. Next Year though it will be on! The Sabrina Jeffries looks good. I’ve been seriously neglecting the romance genre lately but Jeffries is one of my absolute favorites and I’m hoping to read something by her soon. Have a great week!

    I have never had corned beef. My mom was not into much with cooking and somehow I’ve never had it. I’d be curious to know what kind of breadmaker you have. I got rid of my old one as it was kind of weird. Maybe the newer ones or a different brand would be better?

    Good luck with the software update! This is why I have not opened my brand new computer yet. I’ll have to get everything set up again.

    Sounds like some great books on your currently reading shelf and added to your hoard!

    I made Irish stew and soda bread for dinner on St. Patrick’s Day. It was really tasty. But I did something this weekend that I haven’t done since the pandemic started: I bought a loaf of bread from the grocery store. I’ve been enjoying making all our bread, but I decided to go for something different. (It’s weird to me, though, that I’ve swapped what is “normal” when it comes to bread.)

    Have fun playing Hero!

    The smell of baking bread is the best! And your St. PAtrick’s day food sounds perfect.

    How are you liking the Valdemar books? I haven’t read those in so long.

    I had the same meal for St. Paddy’s Day. Yum! Love the smell of baking bread and wish I still had my breadmaker. One of these days I will pick up Mercedes Lackey books. Fun that you did Hero!

    Have a good week, Lark!

    Your St. Patrick’s Day meal sounds delicious.

    All of your books look so good. Enjoy them and have a great week!

    I remember a friend used to cook us these tasty breads using her bread maker years and years ago, and I said I wanted to get one. Fast forward 10+ years, and I love mine too! Always fun to create new recipes. Good choice with Sabrina Jeffries! Congrats on the new update, and sending lots of hugs, RO
