The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by the wonderful Kimba, the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news, a post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
Another mostly uneventful week, though I did have a doctor’s appointment and several tests. Nothing major, mostly followup from last month’s little excitement. I feel fine, and I’m not expecting any surprises, though the test results aren’t back yet. The rest of the time, I’ve been working, blogging, teaching Robin to drive, and trying to avoid the heat! It cooled off last night, thankfully – back down into the low 80s. Wednesday, it felt like an oven out there!
We went to the Folklife Festival on the Mall in DC on Saturday. This year’s festival highlighted the folk cultures of China and Kenya. Fascinating! I was especially impressed by the embroidery of some of the Chinese women.
I had a busier week on the blog – well, that’s what happens when you have a chance to catch up a little! Unfortunately, due to a glitch, yesterdays News & Notes post didn’t go live until nearly 10 p.m. Next week is mystery-heavy, for some reason: two cozy mysteries and a… I’m not sure how to describe The White Magic Five and Dime, except that it was good despite not being my usual sort of mystery. It’s the character-driven story of a woman trying to solve the murder of her estranged mother, a con woman.
