Sunday Matters: Since When is February so Busy?

Sunday Matters

February isn’t normally a busy month for me, but it is this year. Since COVID, I try not to book more than three things during the week, but so far, that has been more of a dream than a reality. I’ve also been battling some health issues and depending on which doctor I see, new tests are added so they have me running back and forth to the lab a lot. I have an appointment to assess all the results mid-month so I should have answers soon.

Little Jinxy was spayed this week! Her mama says she is doing well. She will be 5 months on the 11th.  This was taken right after surgery.


Right Now:

A quick bite to eat and then I am off to see the students. Today is baptism day and we do have a few students signed up to take the plunge. It’s exciting and it’s fun to celebrate with them.

This Week:

On Friday the 10th, my church is hosting Tim Tebow’s Night to Shine, a prom event for those with special needs. This will be my third time serving at this event. This time, I am on the corsage/boutonniere team.  I cannot emphasize enough how wonderful it is to see these happy guests. It’s really an amazing night. Looking forward to it.

On Saturday night I am going to a choir concert to see some of our students.  I had a bday party to go to too but it got cancelled.


I finished Exiles. Review should be up soon.  Next up, Black Cake for book club.

Black Cake


Still haven’t settled on a show to watch.

Grateful for:

  • My new essential oil diffuser. I’ve always wanted one. It’s so relaxing to set it up and let it go. I find it to be very comforting while reading.
  • My daughter found a new studio apartment for the next school year. It’s right next door to where she is so it’s still across the street from the school but she will have her own space and they are cat friendly for a fee. Oddly enough, her current roommate will ALSO be in the building with her own studio.  Can you believe that after this semester, she will be in year 3 of college?

Do you own a diffuser? I bought a fairly inexpensive one this time around but it seems to work great. Now, I need more oils. The one I have changes colors and the pup loves it.

  1. How exciting for your daughter to get her own place. I’ll bet she’ll enjoy her independence. Those college years fly by, don’t they?

    I try not to book too much during the week, but February is turning out to be just as busy as January. I’m hoping to tackle our taxes this afternoon before we meet up with friends for dinner. I may need a stiff drink!

    Have a good week, Ti!

    1. I think I have most of what I need for our taxes so I will be scheduling some time with the new guy soon. I feel like I can do it myself but will it ever get done if I do? I am just going to pay someone to do it for me.

      She is very excited about her own place and I am glad that it’s right across from the theater and campus. Those late rehearsals have her leaving around midnight so it’s nice to just run across the street and be home. She has pepper spray and a personal alarm but still.

  2. It’s so neat that your church is having a Tim Tebow’s Night to Shine

    I have a few essential oil diffusers but rarely use them. I’m still using inscense like I did in the 70’s

    3 years? Wow, it sure flew by… but I bet it didn’t for her 🙂

    1. Night to Shine will be a lot of fun. I lost most of my team because they were moved to other areas but I will power through it.

  3. How will she already be a junior in college?! Time is going far too quickly. That’s awesome to have her own space, but have a friend very near by.

    The prom sounds like a fantastic event.

    I also feel like I try to get too much done each day. Slow down, allow ourselves space. Repeat. 🙂

    I hope your medical tests reveal something you can fix and that it all comes out ok.

    1. My appt on 2/13 will go over the severity of things but I tested positive for four different autoimmune disorders. Which honestly explains my half dead state. If you add that to the one I already had then five.

  4. I hope your kitty has recovered from her surgery. Good luck with the prom event – sounds great. And I really can’t believe your daughter will be in the 3rd year … where does time go??? cheers.

    1. My daughter’s cat Jinxy was sleepy for a day after the surgery but was just fine after that. Apparently she is more calm now.
