Sunday Matters: Rest and Recharge

Sunday Matters

It’s funny to consider Sunday my “rest” day because it’s actually a very busy day for me but volunteering and working with students gives me life. Then, when I get home I usually crash on the couch for a much needed nap while watching something silly on TV. That, or reading. Depends on how much sleep I got the night before.

Right Now:

Coffee. Toast. A little weekend news. That’s about the only kind of news I can handle these days. Then, off to church I go.

This Week:

I finally get to see the orthopedist on Monday! Three long weeks of waiting and 9 weeks total with this knee injury. I’ve been very good and have been off of it but every now and then my knee bobbles a little and then flares up again with bruising and the like. It’s weird how it bruises just from it being strained.

I don’t have anything else on the calendar for this week. The Hub and I need to take a decent road trip this weekend though because last weekend we tried and everywhere we went was a bust. Too crowded or closed. Food, meh. It was almost comical.


I hope to finish Dune today and have the review posted this week. I love a good chunkster of a book but Dune is not a book to rush through so it’s slowed my reading down a little.


We finished American Horror Story Double Feature. The second half was all about aliens and it showed promise but then tanked. Was not happy with how it ended at all.

On to Squid Game.

Grateful for:

  • As aggravating as my son’s car issues have been, that darn car did what it was supposed to do and took the impact of that deer. It’s a mess but he isn’t, and that is what matters.
  • Soup weather!! This is a joke because it’s been 85 this week but it FEELS like soup weather.

That’s all I have. Have a wonderful Sunday and great week!

  1. 85 degrees?! We dipped down into the 40s this morning, which is a little too chilly, but at least it’s not snowing. I hope you get good news about your knee tomorrow. Maybe the doctor will just have you wear a brace until it heals. Sending good thoughts!

  2. Hope you get some answers and knee recovery plan this week. We finally got our first frost which is late for us but, the days have been sunny and high 50s so not too bad. Looking forward to the holidays this year and a few Christmas type books. Hope you find a pleasant road trip today.

  3. Ti, I really hope you get some answers and help about your knee this week. Know you are tired of it. We’ve had some cold weather – down into the low 40’s or maybe even 39. It’s time for the cold fronts to come ‘sweeping down the plains’ and our new area is a few degrees cooler than the Austin area. But, it’s also a bit less humid. We did turn on the heat though. LOL

    Have a good week!

    1. Torn FCL (fibular collateral ligament). It has reattached but not in a great way. I start physical therapy tomorrow and I need an MRI which I am having some trouble scheduling, to determine if surgery is needed. The doc thinks no.

  4. Well, that’s definitely a better way to look at your son’s car woes. That vehicle did what it was supposed to do and kept him safe!

    I sure hope you get some answers about what’s going on with your knee this week. I know how frustrating it’s been for you.

    I never did read Dune back in the day (not much of a sci fi fan) but it seems to be everywhere now with the movie. Hope you’re enjoying your time with it.

  5. I’m glad your son is all right. That can be so dangerous! People crash into moose up here … and it’s often a serious or fatal injury. I’ll be curious what the doctor says about your knee and hope it’s not bad. I have had knee surgeries in 2003 and 2013 … and apparently need replacements someday … so I know a bit about knee problems, sigh. Just hope for healing. I’m impressed by your reading of Dune this fall! Way to go.

  6. SB has had crazy fog this past week and not June-style fog, but low down, thick fog. Then it’s nice during the day. Very strange.

    Go Kia! He could be an ad for them. I really hope your appointment with the orthopedist goes well and that s/he has a nonsurgical solution for you.
