Sunday Matters: Since When is February so Busy?

Sunday Matters

February isn’t normally a busy month for me, but it is this year. Since COVID, I try not to book more than three things during the week, but so far, that has been more of a dream than a reality. I’ve also been battling some health issues and depending on which doctor I see, new tests are added so they have me running back and forth to the lab a lot. I have an appointment to assess all the results mid-month so I should have answers soon.

Little Jinxy was spayed this week! Her mama says she is doing well. She will be 5 months on the 11th.  This was taken right after surgery.

Right Now:

A quick bite to eat and then I am off to see the students. Today is baptism day and we do have a few students signed up to take the plunge. It’s exciting and it’s fun to celebrate with them.

This Week:

On Friday the 10th, my church is hosting Tim Tebow’s Night to Shine, a prom event for those with special needs. This will be my third time serving at this event. This time, I am on the corsage/boutonniere team.  I cannot emphasize enough how wonderful it is to see these happy guests. It’s really an amazing night. Looking forward to it.

On Saturday night I am going to a choir concert to see some of our students.  I had a bday party to go to too but it got cancelled.

Reading:

I finished Exiles. Review should be up soon.  Next up, Black Cake for book club.

Watching:

Still haven’t settled on a show to watch.

Grateful for:

  • My new essential oil diffuser. I’ve always wanted one. It’s so relaxing to set it up and let it go. I find it to be very comforting while reading.
  • My daughter found a new studio apartment for the next school year. It’s right next door to where she is so it’s still across the street from the school but she will have her own space and they are cat friendly for a fee. Oddly enough, her current roommate will ALSO be in the building with her own studio.  Can you believe that after this semester, she will be in year 3 of college?

Do you own a diffuser? I bought a fairly inexpensive one this time around but it seems to work great. Now, I need more oils. The one I have changes colors and the pup loves it.

Sunday Matters: Goodbye January

Sunday Matters

Good morning! The house feels really good right now. Carpets shampooed and all little tidbits of stuff Jinx was playing with have been put away or sent to her. The pup is a happy camper! She has her sunny stair back and dozes uninterrupted. I’ve never seen a dog smile so much.

My daughter got back to Missouri just fine. On the third day of school she had a snow day. Luckily she stocked up on food beforehand. Here we are, already at the end of January. I feel a touch of spring in the air, at least out here in Southern California.

Right Now:

I was going to sit back and enjoy my coffee but the sun is hitting this desk just right and all I see is dust. Need to jump on that.

Then, off to student ministry. We have a special event tonight so I will be heading back there this evening after today’s message.

This Week:

I have a lot on the calendar this week. It seems a little overwhelming. Plus, when my daughter was driving back from Disneyland something hit my windshield. It was a small crack but yesterday it went from an icy morning to 71 degrees so now the crack is all across the window. Getting it replaced on the 4th but I don’t think I can drive it that way.

Reading:

I finished The The Deluge. Click the link to catch the review. That was nearly 900 pages of “rough”. Markley is a master storyteller but climate change is a real horror show. After that one I needed something lighter so I went with Exiles.

Exiles

Watching:

Still haven’t settled on a show to watch. There is so much out there right now. Here’s what I have in mind:

  • Wednesday
  • Yellowstone
  • The White Lotus
  • Only Murders in the Building (started it but lost interest)
  • Kaleidoscope

Grateful for:

  • Crisp, sunny days. It’s beautiful here.
  • The YouVersion Bible app. It’s handy, it keeps me in the Bible and it’s a great way to wind down at the end of the day.
  • That we found a new tax person after our beloved tax lady retired. I was going to do it myself but I just don’t have the energy or the drive these days.

How are you doing? Tell me.
