Sunday Salon/Sunday Post – Pokémon GO – Weekly Rewind – Mail Call

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.

Still dealing with my bad back but heading to the doctor tomorrow so I have not joined the Pokémon GO phenomenon but my daughter did find a Pokémon on my foot this week. I am all for people being active and getting to know their surroundings but they need to use common sense. People getting hit by cars or falling in holes or bodies of water in not a good thing. I saw a post on Facebook that suggested people carry trash bags and clean up streets and parks as they travel about. Also play in a group so you can watch out for each other sounds likes a good idea to me. Are you playing the game?

Val Deniston certainly has her plate full running a café, dabbling with recipes, and helping her grandfather prepare for the town’s upcoming tri-centennial celebration, but she’s grown fond of her new life in the Chesapeake Bay town of Bayport. . .

So when Val is asked to reclaim her old position as a cookbook publicist in New York City, she puts off her decision in order to help her grandfather perfect his chocolate fondue for the weekend festivity’s dessert cook-off. But after the opening ceremonies, Val finds a houseguest strangled to death in her grandfather’s backyard. She suspects a classic case of mistaken identity, especially when another guest nearly bids her life a fondue farewell. Now it’s up to Val to keep the killer from making another stab at murder . . .

Includes 6 five-ingredient recipes!

Praise for Final Fondue

This was a really fun book to read.
~Laura’s Interests

This one grabbed me from the start and sucked me right in, I was hooked from the beginning.
~Melina’s Book Blog

It kept me turning pages and guessing until the final reveal (reminding me a bit of an Agatha Christie grand-finale) which came as a complete surprise.
~Cinnamon Sugar and A Little Bit of Murder

I enjoyed reading about Val and her relationship with her grandfather. All in all, a pleasant diversion.
~Cassidy Salem Reads & Writes

The murder was unique and difficult for me to solve…
~A Date with a Book

In this novel we have a story that will keep you guessing practically up to the big reveal. I love mysteries that leave you guessing but have great character development and a plausible storyline which is compelling and easy to follow.

Cartoon of woman with sore back

I had a rough week. I don’t know if I over did it on the 4th or what, but I woke up the 5th unable to stand and walk, with a horrible pain in my lower back. With my bad leg I never walk to far but was always able to walk around the house. So we brought in my wheelchair. I think it is my sciatic nerve that this pinched. Heat, ibuprofen, and bed rest help. It also seems better in the evening leading Mr. Dollycas to believe the way I sleep maybe causing the problem. If I am not better by tomorrow we will have to get me out to the doctor. No chiropractor will touch me because of my spinal neck fusion, but a massage or acupuncture may be possibilities. Just get my husband through surgery a couple of weeks ago and now I am falling apart. 🙂

This is my favorite week of the year. My birthday and Independence Day. A week of cake and carnivals, parades and parties, food and fireworks. Over the weekend I went to the carnival a few times with my grandsons. I had purchased wristbands for unlimited rides for 3 days and they sure got my money’s worth. We also celebrated my birthday. Tonight the fireworks will fly and we can watch right from our driveway. Tomorrow we will be celebrating the holiday with family to watch a parade, eat some fantastic food and another fireworks show. I am especially excited because my granddaughter and her mom will join the fun too. This is one of the hardest weeks to be without Kris and last year I just couldn’t celebrate but with family around we will get through it again together this year.

It was a busy week here. On Wednesday, Mr. Dollycas has his cervical spine surgery. I spent the whole day until about 11:30 p.m. at the hospital until he got up and walked to the door and back. Then I knew he would be o.k. He was able to come home on Thursday about noon. He was very energetic that first day and Friday morning, no real pain anymore in his arms and legs but can’t lay down yet to sleep and can’t get comfortable in his recliner. I expected it wasn’t going to easy sailing at first as we were told there was a 3-6 recovery time. He just wants to be able to do everything right away, lol.

Just me and my grands.

Saturday, the grandchildren came to see Papa and my daughters and I took them to the aquatic center for the afternoon to give Papa some peace and quiet. It was so much fun and after 16 years I was able to get into the pool too, thanks to a wonderful lift. What a wonderful time. I hope we can do it again soon.

This week was an emotional roller coaster. We enjoyed the long memorial day weekend and then mid week learned that a high school friend of Kris’ took his own life. All those memories came rushing back and I tried to find the right words to help his parents. Sharing that we lost our sons to suicide is so heartbreaking. My grandson Kaden came up  on Thursday night and his brother and mom joined us yesterday to go to a birthday party for my nephew’s little boy. It was great getting together and seeing family we don’t get to see as often as we would like. 

My girls and my nephew.
