As you are reading this, it may be snowing, freezing rain may be falling, or nothing may be happening. The weather people say we have 100% chance of snow, which I have seen them do many times and then we get nothing. I have also seen them forecast an inch or two and we get 6. The first scenario happens way more often, though.
I dread freezing rain which equals ice accumulation. We’ve been through that before down here, and we lost power for three days as a result. I can’t even begin to tell you how stressful and problematic that is. But we will see what comes.
This week we made a yummy gluten-free focaccia bread thanks to Staci Troilo, who some of you may know. She was kind enough to send me the recipe. We had it with gluten-free gnocchi in a homemade cream sauce with sun dried tomatoes. So yummy!!! Staci is a writer and book blogger whose site you really need to visit and you can do so here.
I didn’t get any book mail, any ARCs from NetGalley, or any bargain eBooks, this week. It’s definitely a red-letter week, huh? Considering I have to read 3-4 books per week through the end of April, I have to say that I’m not complaining. I’ve been reading every spare minute I have to get everything read and reviewed by their publication dates. Now, I am starting to put my eye on May – August which already has some ARCs scheduled and I know I have more coming, but I still keep my eye out though with the thought that I would like to keep it to 1 or 2 ARCS per week. That way I can fit in my growing TBR of books that I have bought. Such a wonderful thought, but do I have the will power to pull it off?

I’m not sure if this is open to everyone or not. I couldn’t find information either way.
We watched Eternals this week, which is now streaming on Disney+ as part of their normal subscription. We were a bit disappointed, though. I think, generally speaking, it just wasn’t real clear who was good and who was evil or if any of the Eternals were actually good. It felt like all of them were equal parts good and bad (except for maybe Circe), which just didn’t make for a Marvel movie that we were looking for or wanted. I did, however, enjoy the introduction to the Black Knight. He is very intriguing.
