The Sunday Salon is 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!
It was the perfect kind of week for hibernating with some good books and a little television and I did just that.
I started on Saturday night by putting my book aside and binge-watching Stay Close on NetFlix. It is based on the book of the same name by Harlan Coben. I read and reviewed the book back in 2012 and loved it. I had seen some reviews about the Netflix series that were complaining about issues with the locations used in the U.K. but since I have never been to the U.K. I knew I wouldn’t have those issues, plus I loved the book but had read it long enough ago that I wouldn’t be put off about things that may have been changed. I was excited to see Cush Jumbo in the leading role. I loved her on The Good Wife and The Good Fight (still need to catch up on that series). All the actors impressed me. All eight episodes total a little over 6 hours and I had planned to spread it over two days. Well, that didn’t happen. I couldn’t stop watching. With the exception of a couple of bathroom breaks, I didn’t leave my chair until the final credits rolled at close to 1 a.m. You can watch the trailer here.
The rest of the week I did read good books and my reviews will be up this week.
On Thursday Kaden and Remi arrived for a visit. Their school had shut down for a long weekend of deep cleaning and to allow the teachers and students to recover from the uptick in COVID cases. They are hoping this break will allow the kids to remain in school and not go back to virtual learning. I hope it works because that person-to-person learning is what kids need.
I did have one terrifying moment on Thursday (before the boys arrived). I woke up to find my blog was down. Some people could see it but it wouldn’t load on my or Mr. Dollycas’s computer. Just a dreaded white screen. Thankfully my blog is Hosted by Tiger Technologies and they diagnosed the problem in less than an hour. They have always been amazing especially for someone like me who knows practically nothing of the way things work behind the scenes. The people there are so friendly even when I ask dumb questions or when the problem was something I could have fixed myself.
So how was your week?

Good to hear your website woes rapidly cured!
So fun to have grands to visit….
I would have no clue what to do if my page went down! I love the quote about no Bookaholics anonymous, so true, LOL! https://cindysbookcorner.blogspot.com/2022/01/stacking-shelves-6sunday-post-3.html
Let’s hope that the Covid cases slow down at the schools. Kids need to be in school so much.
How scary that you couldn’t get your blog to come up. Happy that the host was able to get the problem solved quickly!
Four Aunties and a Wedding looks like a series I’d like.
The idea of a long weekend to recover is such a great idea. More schools should do it! I’m a teacher and I see a lot of fatigue with our teachers, even after winter break.
I’m always terrified that something will happen to my blog. I’m really bad with computers. I hope you have fun with the kids!
