The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
A look back at my last week and forward to next week:
Around the House
Lots of activity last week. We met my SIL last Sunday afternoon for lunch and toured some of the monuments in DC. Lots of fun. She’s been in town all week for a conference so we also met her down on the National Mall one evening this week. The folklife festival has started (annual festival on the Mall every year around 4th of July). This year the emphasis is on Hungary. We watched some Hungarian dancers, ate some Hungarian food and listened to violin players. Afterward we went to a rooftop bar. A fun evening.
At the end of the week our son in Northern Virginia moved from one apartment building to another. Our daughter went to help him the night before the move and called to tell us he needed more help! We spent a couple days this week helping pack and move stuff.
Saturday evening we went out to dinner and to see the Capitol Steps for my husband’s birthday. Lots of fodder for political satire…lol. We’ve also had very humid weather, rain and thunderstorms most afternoons. That made the move a challenge at times! A good week, not much done around the house or the blog…but that’s okay.

Rotters by Daniel Kraus, read by Kirby Heyborne (Listening Library)
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, read by Jim Weiss (Listening Library)
The Tor.Com website reports that the Peter Grant series (described as an urban fantasy/police procedural) by Ben Aaronovitch has been optioned to become a UK TV series. I’m excited about that since I hope it will eventually make its way across the Atlantic to the U.S. I like this series of books a lot so I hope it does get made into a TV series.
Around the house
We are traveling to the Midwest for the week of 4th of July so this will be another week with not too much on the blog.
