It doesn’t seem possible that July is coming to an end. Yesterday was my son’s 23rd birthday. In just a few weeks, my daughter and I will be in Missouri. This is crazy to me.
With us going to church on Thursday evenings and me not having youth group on Sunday morning, my Sundays are pretty laid back. I will be headed back to student ministry come August, just not in the same role I had before. I hope to focus more on students wanting to take the next step.
Today, I hope to go through my daughter’s room to see what needs to go, what stays, what can be donated because she will not be able to take much with her on the plane. I am hoping she can do this with me but she is also trying to fit “friend” time in before she leaves since she works all week long. Her closet still has tea sets in it, if you can believe it.
Probably more of what I said above. It’s a daunting task to take a childhood bedroom apart. It will take some time, I think.
Meal planning. What’s that? I haven’t done it in so long but I am not a big fan of eating out all the time. I will be doing some planning this week. Simple meals. Maybe some sheet pan dinners but then the house gets so hot.
My review of Count The Ways will be up this week. I need to read and review Damnation Spring but I also want to read The Paper Palace so I may read both at the same time. Can you read more than one book at a time? I can if they are different enough.
My church did an At The Movies series which shared clips of movies and TV shows and used them for teaching a message. One of those nights we saw bits of The Queen’s Gambit. I had ZERO desire to see that show until we saw clips of it. Both my husband and I agreed that it looked really good so we may dive into that one.
- Naps. I’ve been a little tired lately and I’ve been taking short naps after reading and it’s been great getting some extra sleep hours in.
- Clean floors. I am always so happy after mopping the floors. The pup doesn’t like it. She plays “hot lava” when I mop the floors by going to the highest point she can.
Tell me how you are! What are you reading, doing, watching, eating?
