Sunday Matters: Returning?

Sunday Matters

Good morning! It’s been a little cooler here but very hazy from all the smoke coming in from Northern California. It casts an orange tone to everything giving me this sepia view of the world around me. The pup doesn’t care for it because it interferes with her “sun” time.

Right Now:

Heading to student ministry soon. The rest of the day is wide open after 1pm.

Yesterday we hit the Getty Center museum and I will share photos from that in another post. It had been a long time since we’ve been there so it was super enjoyable.

This Week:

I’m still trying t figure out my return date for work. It’s interesting because there’s been no info and I have asked. Seems like most of my colleagues are headed back 10/4. Am I going back too? Haven’t a clue. I would like to prepare because I have not one thing to wear. Not one thing.


I am finishing up (hopefully) The Night She Disappeared by Lisa Jewel. I’ve done pretty well with her books. I looked back and I’ve read at least six by her. Oh, and I should have my review of Damnation Spring up soon. That one surprised me.

My RIP reading is not going great. I mean, I guess you can count the Jewel book but the books I want to read are still not in from the library yet. I’ve been saying this for weeks.


We finished up American Horror Story: Part 1 of double feature. Boy, was it good. Probably one of the best seasons yet. Macaulay Culkin was so good in it. Not exactly sure when Part 2 starts.

I  keep seeing all the Hallmark Christmas promos and let me tell you, I am here for it. Those shows are so cozy and warm.

Grateful for:

  • It seems that my knee is slowly improving. Fairly certain it’s a torn meniscus. If it suddenly takes a turn for the worst I will hit the doc’s office. I just don’t think they can do much for it. I just need to stay off of it.
  • Book mail. It had been a long, long time since I received any book mail and I was beginning to wonder what the deal was. But the other day I saw a package hidden on my porch and it was a copy of My Monticello! Yay! When you are home all day long working, receiving book mail really cheers the soul.

Have a wonderful Sunday. Read something good, do something fun, or just rest.

  1. I’ve heard great things about My Monticello. I hope you love it. I don’t get books from that press lately. Most of the books are through NetGalley etc., and I try not to accept too many of those because I don’t read ebooks much. I hope today’s a good day. 🙂

  2. I have begun receiving book mail again. But it’s been a long time coming. I’m looking forward to finding out what you think about DAMNATION SPRING. Hope your knee heals. They do not routinely operate to repair this anymore. Be careful.

  3. Physical therapy probably would help your knee. I had surgery on my left knee for a torn meniscus a few years ago but had to fight with insurance company about paying for it. In hindsight, I wish I had chosen physical therapy. But I wouldn’t wait for it to get worse before starting.

  4. As a planner, I’d need to know when they expected me back at work as well. Glad your knee is improving, rest and ice does help if it is a tear. Glad you had a nice time at the museum. I don’t receive much book mail these days either, mostly it’s kids books which I love as well as I get to pick them out. My RIP is going pretty well but, my library books are at a standstill as well. With all our rain there are mold issues at our library and they are closed until the end of the year but working to do pickups and drop offs elsewhere in town. I have plenty of eBooks to catch up on. I’m not a Hallmark fan but I do like those old B/W Christmas movies from years gone by. Have a good week.

  5. Give your knee time to heal, that is something you do not want to mess with!

    We’ve also had “fire sky” here in SB; the sun has that creepy glow to it.

    I ended up putting Damnation Spring aside having read not one single word. And my book group is discussing it in 5 minutes. Maybe their thoughts on it will motivate me to pick it up again. I think it’s partly because I am in RIP challenge mode so decided to read King’s Billy Summers instead.

  6. Ugh still getting smoke? I thought it was over in Calif. argh. We still haven’t been to the Getty Museum blah! Always wanted to go but crowds might have deterred us a couple times. I have long had knee / meniscus problems as a long-time tennis player … and two operations. So I know a bit about it … the meniscus can take a long while to heal or not. How did you hurt it? taking it easy is a good idea.

  7. Yikes on the knee. Hope it keeps improving. Also I hope you get some clarification on work. It’ll be strange not working from for a while I imagine.

    I haven’t gotten book mail for years. I don’t see the best for print books so while I still do make my way through some I mostly like ebooks or audio. I’m looking forward to your thoughts on Damnation Spring.

    Hope it’s a good week ahead for you Ti!
