Sunday Matters: It’s Been Real

Sunday Matters

My week was going along pretty well but towards the end, heading into Thursday and Friday I just felt like I was being tested. One thing after another came up. Including four dozen macaroons that I baked for a bake sale that just fell apart when I took them out of the oven.

What happened?? I am thinking something was wrong with the egg whites or something was wrong with the organic coconut. I don’t usually use organic. It was so dry. Then my son’s car broke down, it was repaired and then the very same day a new issue caused the car to break down again. I was ready to throw shredded coconut at the wall.

I know this is all real life. Things happen but I honestly did not handle the night well.

Right Now:

I am okay but I sort of feel like I should just stay in bed. I’ve got things to do but it’s a nice thought.

This Week:

I have no pressing appointments this week. Some volunteering but all manageable.

Reading:

Still reading Murakami’s new book which is why there have been no reviews. It’s over 600 pages and I am taking my time with it.

Watching:

I need to watch The Haunting of Hill House on Netflix. I have heard from several of you that it’s pretty darn good.

I recorded Charlie Brown so I’ll be enjoying that soon. I just love Charlie Brown!

Still watching American Horror Story and The Walking Dead.

New Things I’ve Tried:

I tried to go “healthy” by switching out my regular coffee creamer for organic coconut creamer but it was bleh. Not good. Not creamy. Not tasty at all.

On a personal care note, I used to buy expensive hair spray. Did so for years but then all of a sudden they stopped making it. So I tried a cheap drugstore spray out of desperation and it’s the best spray ever. No flaking. Totally controls my frizz. It’s cheap enough to keep multiple bottles around the house too.

Grateful for:

Chance interactions. Sometimes I have the best conversations with people who just step into my life for a split second.

My question for you this weekend:

For those who celebrate Thanksgiving, what is the one food you must have or it’s not Thanksgiving? For me, it’s the gluten-free cornbread dressing I make.

Sunday Matters: Fall Cleaning

Sunday Matters

This weekend has been spent cleaning out the garage. To get to my Halloween and Christmas stuff, I need to access the garage attic and every year stuff piles up at the exact spot where I need to lower the ladder. It never fails! But, I can honestly say it feels like fall now.

Right Now:

Just kicking back with some coffee while staring at my bookshelves wondering how I will get all the books read. It’s an nice problem to have.

This Week:

I’ve got some appointments this week. I don’t know if it’s an age thing or what but appointments stress me out. Just knowing that I have to be somewhere at a specific time causes anxiety. Even hair appointments. Makes no sense at all.

Reading:

As if you didn’t know. Killing Commendatore by Haruki Murakami is proving to be very interesting and very Murakami-like.

Watching:

The Walking Dead started its new season. It was a little lackluster for a premiere.

New Things I’ve Tried:

I am adding nutritional yeast to foods now. I’ve heard all about its benefits and have begun to sprinkle it on certain foods. I was particularly intrigued by its use as a sub for Parmesan cheese. It has an odd, rather pleasing flavor.

I received my 2019 Passion Planner. It’s a new size this year, 7 x 10. It’s a little large for me to carry around but I do like the additional writing space.  We’ll see how it works out.

Grateful for:

My lunch-time ladies. Lunch is pure entertainment these days and a nice break from all the admin changes we’ve seen of late.

My question for you today. What is the one movie you love but haven’t seen in a really long time?  For me, it’s Bob Hope’s Boy, Did I Get a Wrong Number! (1966). It’s so funny!
