The Sunday Salon used to be a meme but was getting so huge it became unmanageable, so it is now a Facebook group that has become an
informal week in review gathering place for bloggers.
It is also a place to share our thoughts about things of a bookish nature.
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by

A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.
HAPPY SUNDAY EVERYONE!
My week started out with tears then anger then determination. I sat down at my desk last Sunday morning and my computer was totally locked up. I did a hard shutdown, gave it some time, and powered it back up. Hours later the sign in screen finally appeared and I signed in to be greeted by hours of a black screen. We have a family computer in the kitchen and did what I could there but all my docs were on my computer. I usually back them up every week but had gotten lax at that. I was going to do a back up on Saturday but after a long day at the computer decided to wait until Sunday. Well, lesson learned.
After several restarts and getting into the repair center of the computer I was able to drag some documents and images to a jump drive and get my blogoversary posts up using the other computer. I also learned that this computer is not fast enough to handle everything I throw at it. It was stressful trying to get everything done and I am still behind. So right now, I am looking at other options. New, custom built, refurbished, desktop, laptop. I hope to make a decision sometime today so I can get back to the full load of work as soon as possible.
The stress melted away when our family gathered for Christmas Friday night. We all ate our fill of lasagna and breadsticks made by Daughter #2 with an assist by Mr. Dollycas, who is making good progress with his recovery. After dinner, the wrapping paper flew and everyone was thrilled with their presents. The highlight was Mr. Dollycas’s new recliner, complete with heat and massage. Kaden loved his FortNite sweatshirt, Remi got a pair of light-up roller skates that he barely took off to go to sleep, and Natalie loved her new pink keyboard (piano) and can’t wait to learn to play it. The parents went home and the kids stayed here with Nana, Papa, and Aunt Z.Z, but quickly fell asleep after the all the day’s excitement.
