Sunday Matters: Long Weekends Are the Best

sunday-matters (1)
I am off on Monday for Memorial Day so this is a long weekend for me and I love it. I spent this past week selecting books for my summer reading list and I think I have it, even though I only selected ten books. I am going to write it up and share it later this week.

How are you? It’s been a rough news week for sure. You can’t help but go through all of the emotions, anger, sadness, frustration, etc. And yet, we’ve seen it so many times. My heart is with those families. This weekend we get to spend time with our loved ones but not everyone can do that so we will just quietly exist and appreciate what we have.

Right Now:

Student ministry is meeting today but I am taking the day off. I’ve got my books lined up on my Kindle and one physical copy to tote around and I just want to be a slug.

Update on my daughter. She had her procedure last Tuesday. It didn’t reveal anything serious but we also didn’t get much of an answer on how to handle her issue going forward. The hospital was ramped up for COVID again so I wasn’t allowed in and the doc did not leave specific notes. We need to talk to him together, I think.


My review of A Good Measure posted last Monday. I had some trouble with the giveaway entry form so if you stopped by and wanted to enter for a chance to win a copy, try it again. It should be fixed now.

My current read is Notes on Your Sudden Disappearance by Alison Espach. I read the first page and fell right into the story. I cannot put it down.

Notes on Your Sudden Disappearance


We finished Ozark. What a show. I think we may pick up another Korean show but it has to be something that my husband and I can watch together. Still deciding.

Grateful for:

  • That procedure being behind us and nothing serious coming up in the results.
  • This extra day off.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

  1. I’m so glad to hear that the procedure showed nothing serious. I hope you find answers soon. Yes, indeed, these long weekends are the best. I thought I had my summer reading picks but I went to the library yesterday and checked out another 25 books. The possibilities abound! Enjoy your weekend!

  2. Glad your daughter is all right and you are having a peaceful weekend off. It’s been a tough week for news for sure. It’s outrageous. and there’s no guarantees it won’t happen again next week. Something is broken with the society that allows it to happen time and again.

  3. I’m glad you are able to enjoy a three-day weekend with your family. It’s sad to think of those in TX (and elsewhere in this country) who are mourning their children and loved ones. Memorial Day Weekend will never be the same for them, sadly.

    I’m sorry your daughter’s procedure (colonoscopy?) didn’t give you any answers, but it’s a good baseline for future testing. I go every 3 years now since I’ve had polyps and my brother had colon cancer at 40. Does your daughter’s doctor use My Chart? I find that a valuable tool and can see what my husband’s doctor charts/notes after each visit.

    Don’t you love a book that pulls you in from the first page? I just finished Damnation Spring and felt the same way.

    Take care, Ti. Hope your knee is doing ok.

  4. Have you watched Crash Landing on You? It is the best Korean drama I’ve seen. It’s so good!

    What a relief that they didn’t find anything horrendous going on with your daughter, but it’s also frustrating that you didn’t get clear answers about what it is and what to do about it.

  5. Hope you got a lot of reading done over the holiday weekend. Sounds like you are just picking up the right books — falling into them and not putting them down. I hate watching the news…and another today. ugh
