Sunday News #31

Sunday Post and Sunday Salon are blog news memes hosted at Caffeinated Reviewer and Reader Buzz, respectively. It’s a chance to share news, recap the past week on your blog, and showcase books and other things.

I’m slowly feeling less broken-hearted. I still miss Dax, obviously. I’m just really glad she’s no longer in pain.

I’m also feeling much better about my eyesight. My vision’s still fluctuating a bit, but not as bad as it was in the beginning now that I’m no longer taking antibiotic and steroid drops.


This week on the blog:


I still didn’t read this week because of my eyesight. I’m going to start reading again this week, though.

Before I had LASIK, I started reading A DRESS OF VIOLET TAFFETA by Tessa Arlen. I’m going to put it on hold, though. I can tell I’ll like the story; I’m just not in the mood for it right now.

My book club meets this week so I’m going to try to get LINES OF COURAGE by Jennifer A. Nielsen read by our meeting. Then, I’m going to start A THOUSAND MILES by Bridget Morrissey.


I’ve been listening to a lot of music this week so I’m sharing two songs. The first song is from JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT. About a month ago, I bought some new clothes and one of them is a rainbow-colored jacket. I wore it this week and my husband started singing “Joseph’s Coat” to me. I, of course, had to listen to the whole soundtrack after that. (The video’s from the film adaptation of the play.)

The second song is one I discovered while watching CODA on my AppleTV. It’s a song I grew up playing on my player piano, and I love Emilia Jones’ rendition. The song is “Both Sides Now” by Joni Mitchell. (The video’s from the movie.)


As I stated above, I watched CODA on my AppleTV this week. It was such a heart-warming story. For those of you unfamiliar with it, it’s based on the book of the same name. CODA stands for Child of Deaf Adults. If you have an AppleTV and haven’t watched it yet, I highly recommend it.

We also watched the RESIDENT EVIL series on Netflix. I enjoyed it a lot View Spoiler ».


I love that Corey and I are basically done unpacking. We just need to hang our artwork and buy a few things for organization and then we’ll be done.


I want to start crocheting and knitting again. I haven’t done either since December.


I need to get ready for school this week. The new semester starts next Monday. I’m taking 15 credits, which includes my nemesis class Basic Computer Programing. Hopefully, I’ll get it done this semester. Third time’s the charm, right? (It’s not that it’s difficult. I’ve just gotten really sick both semesters I tried taking it and got so behind that I couldn’t finish it. Let’s hope I stay healthy for the next four months. )

How was your week? Anything exciting happen?

    My heart goes out to you during this time, Jenni <3 Dax <3
    CODA was my favourite movie last year – so happy they won! Was jumping up and down when I watched the academy awards. The father character really was amazing, loved him and so happy for his award.
    Take care <3

      Thanks, Anne! 😀 To be honest, my husband did most of the unpacking. I helped with our bedroom, the bathrooms, my library, and a little bit in the kitchen, but he did the rest. He’s a rockstar. Lol.
