No sickness this week! Life has returned to normal and I’m catching up on everything. Getting a much-needed haircut tomorrow. Funny how the little things fall by the wayside when you’re sick. Went out antiquing with my husband yesterday. We didn’t buy anything (a first), but it was nice to get out and look. I’m actually going to have to sell some of my vintage glassware collection to make room when we move to our retirement home, which is less the half the size of our current home. So anything I buy right now will have to be really special to “make the cut.” We also went to Lowe’s to look at stain for a new bookcase, and then we checked out some stoves. I still don’t know what kind of stove I want. It was just a nice, normal day, which we haven’t had in a while.

Tonight my beloved Cincinnati Bengals play for the AFC title, so I’ll be rooting them on. I’ve been a fan of this team for over 40 years, and there have been a lot of losses and disappointments in that time. I’m hoping for another chance at a Super Bowl and a victory this time.


On Wednesday I reviewed Last Summer Boys by Bill Rivers

On Friday I reviewed The Marriage Season by Jane Dunn as part of a blog Tour for Rachel’s Random Resources.

I also participated in Book Blogger Hop on Friday. The question was, “Do you prefer to read in a quiet or noisy setting?”

For Indie Weekend I have reviewed The Great Loveda Brown by Jolie Tunnell.


On Monday or Tuesday, I will review the audiobook of Spare, narrated by Prince Harry. It was ghostwritten by J.R. Moehringer

On Tuesday I will participate in Top Ten Tuesday if time permits.

On Wednesday or Thursday I will review Murder in the Cathedral by Cora Harrison

On Friday I will participate in Book Blogger Hop if time permits.

And for Indie Weekend I’ll review or spotlight Indie Books.


I am reading Murder in Postscript and The Echo of Old Books for the Historical Novel Society, so those reviews won’t be posted until after they are published on May 1st. This Other Eden is an audiobook I picked up on Netgalley.

Have a great week, everyone!

  2. Glad you’re feeling better! I love antiquing, even when I don’t buy anything it’s just fun to look around. My Chiefs are playing your Bengals tonight. I’m actually pretty scared your team will win. I’d love to see my Chiefs win again, but with how the Bengals have beat us the last three times and with some of our injuries, I just don’t see how it will happen. But we’ll be watching the same thing tonight! Have a great week!

  3. Your beloved Bengals knocked my beloved out of the playoffs a couple weeks ago and I’m still trying to recover from that heartbreaking loss. Lol. I do hope your team does well, though. I may be rooting for them moving forward this season. 🙂

  4. So glad you’re feeling better! Gives you a whole new appreciation for those nice, normal days. Good luck to your Bengals. Now that my Jaguars are out of it, I’m actually pulling for the Chiefs.


      1. He was the keynote speaker at a writing conference I attended. After his talk, I ran–not walked–to the book table to buy a copy. It’s as good a read as I anticipated. (I just went upstairs and checked my copy; he did sign it for me.)

  5. I’m so glad you’re feeling back to normal. Your weekend sounds so lovely! Moving to a house half the size of yours now is definitely a deterrent from buying things but I think downsizing is always good for retirement. Have a wonderful week Bonnie!


  6. I also am really careful about what we buy for the home now. We’ll be retiring to our beach house in about 8 years, so I try to keep the added stuff to a minimum.
