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.
You can also link up weekly on Readerbuzz.
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by

~ It’s a chance to share news~
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!
An Event FULL Week!
I knew last week was going to be a busy week but I missed an event on Tuesday that I was looking forward to because my body just wouldn’t cooperate. I mentioned last week how the weather changes were affecting me.
To celebrate National Library Week new cozy author, Holly Quinn was going to be at the library where my sister works Tuesday night. She and I planned to go together. Well by about noon on Tuesday I had to admit I was not going to be able to leave the house. My left ear was still plugged and truthfully it felt like my whole body was congested. My amazing sister still went to the event and had so much fun. It isn’t often cozy authors are in this neck of the woods, so I am sad I missed this opportunity. Holly does live in Wisconsin, so I hope I can attend one of her events soon.
By Thursday, I was feeling a bit better, which was good because grandson, Remington’s Spring Concert was that night. For the record, the nice weather from last week was gone, snow on Wednesday, cold, wind, and rain on Thursday, so the only place Spring could be found was in the high school gymnasium.
The concert was for Kindergarten through 3rd grade. There were more than 100 kindergartners on that stage and it was hard to pick him out from the masses, so I grabbed him for a picture on the way out. The kids all did a wonderful job. It just amazed me that I graduated from that school almost 40 years ago and not too much had changed. That is both a good thing and a bad thing. Great for memories but there are a lot of people in the community questioning if the facilities are meeting student needs. With grandkids in the district, this is something I will be following.
That brings us to Event #3. Natalie’s Dance Recital and Birthday Lunch. Again at my old high school. After months of practice, the kids took to the stage to dance to the Greatest TV Show theme songs. All the dancers started off the show dancing to the theme from The Greatest Showman and then her group danced to The Dukes Of Hazard and Kacey Undercover theme songs.
After the recital, we picked up the grandsons (Daughter #1 had to work 😥 ) and went to a local restaurant for an early birthday lunch for Natalie because her mom has a surprise getaway planned for the weekend after her birthday.
It was great that Mr. Dollycas’s mom joined us for both the recital and the lunch too. I also was able to visit with a woman I used to work with before my accident at the recital during the short intermission. That really made my day.
So while I did miss 1 event I am so happy I was able to attend the others. I have no events on my calendar for this week so I am going to rest up because with this family things can pop up at a moments notice. 😀

Happy Sunday! Hope you have a GREAT week, <3
I’m sorry you missed the cozy event, but if you had to miss one of them, I’m glad it wasn’t one of your grandkids’ concerts! I hope you’re able to rest up this week, and that you have a good week.
Sorry you missed your author event but at least you managed the others!
You had a full week, even without attending the author event. I am sad you didn’t get to go to that one, as I love hearing about author events, and this is an author that is new to me.
Glad you are feeling better!
Enjoy all these wonderful mysteries.
The high school where I grew up hasn’t changed that much either. They did add on, but some of the old parts of the building still look like they did 30 years ago. Sorry you missed the one event, but were able to go to all the others.
A shame to miss the author event, but I’m glad you enjoyed your grandchildren’s concerts. I hope you are feeling better.
Have a great reading week
