Sunday Post: March begins and maybe spring?

Sunday-PostKimberly hosts the Sunday Post each week. I like to take part because it gives me an opportunity to look back at last week and forward to next week in both my personal life and my blog and book life! I also love to see what other people are doing and what books everyone is reading.


Our son is moving from New York back to the Midwest, but hasn’t decided where he’s going to live yet so he came to our house to store some of his stuff in our basement. He arrived Sunday evening, found a car to buy and then left Wednesday morning on the train to Washington DC (a 28-hour train ride!) We’re taking care of Donnie, our son’s mini Dachshund. He’s a sweet little dog. He sleeps beside me most of the time. When he’s not sleeping he watches at the door for squirrels and birds to chase. Even though it’s icy outside the door he flies across the ice as though it’s not even there. He doesn’t get close to the squirrels, but doesn’t give up!

We had two ice storms plus another that ended up being mostly rain and then a little snow. The ice right outside the back of our house (that you see in the photos) is sticking around because it on the north side of our house and is in shadow all day. However, this next week we are supposed to have several days in the 50s. Yay! That might melt some ice!


We watched the U.S. men’s curling team win lots of games this week culminating in the Gold Medal game and the team won! It was a good game. There have been lots of great events and performances. The two Russian ice skaters who won gold and silver in the women’s figure skating were amazing.

We also finished watching Altered Carbon on Netflix. It’s excellent. Since it was so icy out and it was hard for me to do too much besides reading or watching TV (Donnie needs quite a bit of attention) we also watched several episodes of Murder in Suburbia on Acorn.


I reworked my About page (renaming it “Who, Why, What and Where”) as well as working on reviews. I downloaded a plugin and created a Blogroll of some of my favorite book blogs. I’m also catching up on commenting on blogs.

Author: Jan

I love to read--especially mysteries, science fiction and fantasy. I also love blogging, photography, gardening, playing Mah Jonng, reading with a cat on my lap, throwing a ball for a dog, creating cards to send to family and friends, reading book blogs, using my computer.

  1. Oh I hope you like Truly Devious! I really enjoyed it. You also read some good ones! Hope your son finds him a good place to live!

    Have a great week and happy reading,


  2. Doni looks adorable – I love that breed, they are so brave and game:). I’m delighted you are getting hold of The Long Way Home and look forward to seeing what you make of it. Have a great week, Jan – let’s hope it’s a lot less icy!


  3. Donnie is adorable and looks very sweet! I hope all that icy stuff goes away soon. Our daffodils are just starting to bloom here though I’m afraid it’s a bit too soon. I really need to give Acorn a try. We have Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu but I haven’t tried that one. I’m really curious to see what you think of Truly Devious. It’s on my TBR. Have a great week!


    1. We have nothing coming up yet since the ground is still frozen though with the warmer temperatures I hope some of our bulbs will start poking out of the soil. I find quite a few programs I like on Acorn. We have Netflix and Amazon, too, but not Hulu.
