Sunday Matters: What Month Is It?

Sunday Matters

My brain thinks it’s June. I have been dating my checks wrong and flipping to the wrong month in my planner. June was very mild for us so I’m sure that helped confuse me. But can the year fly by any faster? I don’t think so. It has been SO pretty out, though. Warm days and cool evenings. Perfect.

Right Now:

Not much going in this morning. Later, there is a movie night scheduled at church so I will be going to that.

Later, I might flip through a few cookbooks for meal inspiration. I’m so tired of making the same old stuff over and over again.

This Week:

This week should be good. The Child Development class my daughter is taking at the college ends this week. And production week for Little Shop is still a week off so we will have a little break before that.

Oh, and I almost forgot about a book discussion I am hosting mid-week for I’ll Be Gone In the Dark.


I’ve got my summer list of books to get to but I want something really juicy. Have’t decided what though.


I am ready discuss Stranger Things if anyone wants to!

New Things I’ve Tried:

Every now and then my skin breaks out. Usually if I have eaten gluten by accident. Well, my daughter had a sample of Glam Glow Supermud and it healed what I had overnight. No joke. I have tried it three times now and it’s worked overnight in each case. A dab overnight. Boom. Healed the next day.

This is not a sponsored post but when I find things that work I like to share them. It’s pricey but such a small amount is used. I bet it would last a long time.

Grateful for:

SO darn happy that this one class ends this week.

What are you up to today? How’s the week look for you?

  1. A couple of questions before I get to what I’m up to today and my week: 1.) What movie are you watching at church? 2.) Why didn’t you like Stranger Things? I think you mentioned elsewhere that it didn’t work for you? Why not? Me…I thought it was better than the second season, but not as good as the first. It’s hard to top the first season of almost anything or the first book or the first movie. It does happen, but rarely.

    Today, besides reading blogs as I usually do, I am going to try to dip into The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt, because my wife really enjoyed it and wants me to read it. This week, I have a physical therapy appointment on Tuesday and I’m waiting to see if our insurance will cover me getting “gel” injections for my (left) knee. I work six days in a row but don’t have to go until later on Tuesday, leaving more time for PT, and I don’t work eight hour days, 7 1/2 is the longest. So I got that goin’ for me. 🙂

    1. The kids voted on Spider Man, Into the Spider Verse. I think that is what it was called. It’s a cartoon. It was okay. It’s on Netflix right now if you want to check it out. It would have been better if the volume had been turned up. We were outside and I guess there was an issue with the houses around the neighborhood so the volume was pretty low.

      At first, I wasn’t sure about Stranger Things S3. By the third episode I was thinking it was a little slow and I wasn’t liking how split up they were. But by the 4th episode I was totally hooked and loving it. The ending and the post credit scene has everyone talking of course. I will email you because I don’t want to include spoilers.

      I hope the shots are covered. That is what helped me.

  2. Hope your book discussion goes well. I haven’t read that one yet. I’m not a big reader of true crime – because it’s ‘true’. I like my crime fictional – at least in my head. Ha!

    1. With this true crime book, I am kind of surprised that I had not heard of the Golden State Killer prior to this book. I was about ten at the time and I certainly remember the Hillside strangler so why not this guy? Weird. It’s like he didn’t get as much press.

  3. Glad things are going well for you! I just got The Scent Keeper from the library, So am looking forward to reading it after I finish Still Life by Louise Penny. Penny is a new author for me, and a mystery series. I am enjoying it. Bryan asked good questions and am looking forward to your replies.

    1. I started answering these comments out of order so I will be sure to answer Bryan’s questions today! I’ve not read Penny either but a few from my book club enjoy her.

  4. I’m good with knowing the month but have been confused about the year lately – a couple times, I thought it was already 2020. Where did that come from?

    1. I agree with the other comment. All the political talk has us jumping to 2020. Ugh. I just want everything to slow down a little.

  5. I’m having a hard time grasping that it’s July, too… this entire month has been pretty much a blur! Can’t wait to head to the CT shore on Thursday for some much-needed relaxation. Hope the book discussion goes well. I haven’t had the courage to read that book yet!

    1. I was thinking I’ll Be Gone in the Dark would be very morbid and gruesome but it’s not bad. She doesn’t go into detail, which I think might have to do with the fact that she really didn’t have the actual crime scene data when she wrote the book. She had interviews and notes but she didn’t have the access that one would think to write a book like this. She never mentions pictures or anything like that.

      Your shore trip sounds like heaven to me. Have a nice cold drink by the water and think of me!

  6. My summers always fly by, but that’s to be expected with my daughter on a competitive swim team! We’re always at the pool for practice, meets, fun, and fundraisers. It’s been a fantastic season in a really hard division — her team moved up to B division from D division this year. These teams are very fast!

    On that note, we couldn’t be prouder of her for making the divisional championship meet on July 20! Only the top 2 swimmers by time are sent to divisionals and she made it in backstroke and breaststroke! Amazing. She’s put in the hard work this year, it’s been great to see her flourish in a sport she loves.

    I haven’t read much except Sunset Beach by Mary Kay Andrews and a kid book and Ghettoside. Thanks for that review of the true crime book — i finally read it since book club didn’t want to. Very interesting and I think there is tons to discuss, though I did think the author was a bit fan girlish about Skaggs.

    1. Your daughter is doing so well in swim. I think it’s great that she made the championship meet. Do you have to travel far for it? My daughter’s show is August 2, 3, 4 and this class is almost over so things are looking too. Of course, 11th grade registration is the first day of the show but she has to do it so it will be a bit of a juggling act. This weekend we do back to school shopping. Ugh. I also have to take my son to buy dorm stuff. No summer for me but I guess that’s okay. I am just so relieved this class is almost over.

  7. “I’m so tired of making the same old stuff over and over again.” Wish I had a penny for every time I’ve said or thought that LOL!

  8. I’m back from Europe and reading the 73 book posts that I missed while I was gone. It’s a bit overwhelming. I also need to get the posts up of the books I read while I was away. But, I definitely feel like I’m on vacation!
