Sunday Matters: Pixie Dust and Rain

Sunday Matters

Production week for Peter Pan ends with tonight’s seven o’clock performance. The Girl will be sad about it ending but track starts Monday. Yep, this Monday so she won’t have much time to think about it.

Right Now:

We’ve got church in the morning but the middle-school ministry is not meeting since they are at winter camp, so I have the evening off. The Girl does not though as she will be on stage. I am usually backstage with her but something happened with the scheduling this time around and it didn’t work out. I’ve worked every closing show for so many years I am not even sure what I will do with myself.

This Week:

I have a referral for my foot first thing Monday morning. It feels so much better but something is not healing right because my foot clicks when I walk. Clicks and pops and feels like it’s going to give out. It’s a really weird feeling. Like, piano wire getting tangled up. The x-ray taken this week shows a somewhat fresh break and this happened over a month ago so it really shouldn’t look like that. But other than the foot, I feel great!! Still living on my sleep stores from winter break.

Nothing else going on except track practices and a book club meeting to discuss Ghettoside.

Reading:

Right now, I am reading Lost & Found and it’s just so quirky and fun but also a little deep. It reminds me of Where’d You Go, Bernadette which I absolutely loved.

Lost & Found

Watching:

I haven’t been watching too much of anything lately.

Making:

Sigh. Making stuff requires a trip to the market and I’m really not feeling it. Plus, I received a really crazy weather alert on my phone which made it sound like some pretty severe weather is coming our way. If I go though, I will probably pick up soup fixings.

Grateful for:

Talented kids. I love, love, love that my kids are into the arts. I love to see them on stage. It just fills me with joy.

Sunday Matters: Weekends Should Be Longer

Sunday Matters

Goodness. It’s been an interesting week. A productive one, but even though it was a short week it sure felt long. We did manage to get some fun in though. Since my #OneWord post where I named Discover as my word for the year, I made sure to get out this past Saturday. I mean, I bolted for the door.

We visited The Grove in Los Angeles, visited historic Farmer’s Market, Los Angeles and then ended up at the Santa Monica Pier. The weather was so nice.

Right Now:

Same as always, I am sitting here with my coffee, eating some toast with apricot preserves. I’d kill for some lemon curd but I don’t seem to have any on hand. Trying to decide which church service to go to. It’s better for me to go to the earlier one but not so great for the rest of my family.

This Week:

I’ve been in denial but we are in production week for Peter Pan. It really shouldn’t be that bad since she doesn’t have a lead and The Teen is not in the show. No complicated call times to keep track of. Just ensemble stuff. Easy peasy. I will be working backstage but my time back there will be cut short this time. I won’t know what to do with myself. I’ve spent so many hours backstage it just feels weird to not be doing it this time.

At work, the students return on Monday so it will be plenty busy for the next few weeks.

Reading:

All sorts of good stuff going on in the reading department. I am a reading fool! Back-to-back books read and reviews written right after finishing them. Did someone put something in my water?  I just finished Ghettoside a few days ago. A good read about black on black violence in Los Angeles. It’s my club’s pick for February. I think it will be a good discussion.

I also finished Faulk’s new book, Where My Heart Used to Beat. The review will post this week. I liked it a lot.

I am reading The Time Traveler’s Wife which I never got around to doing earlier. Also reading Lost & Found by Brooke Davis which was just sent to me but has started off well.

Watching:

I have Jurassic World on DVD but haven’t been able to sit down and watch it. I really need to so I can send it back to Netflix.

I am starting the countdown for The Walking Dead!! Valentine’s Day, baby!! It’s almost here!!

Making:

Nothing. My going to the market is dependent upon these kids getting up and they are still in bed.

Grateful for:

Getaways, even short road trips. I’ve got to change the scenery once in awhile or I go a little stir crazy.

Anyways, I wish the weekend could be five days long and the work week only two days long. Someone got it backward.
