I love this time of the year. It’s not too hot and yet summer is on the brain. More specifically, summer reading. Given all my physical challenges of late, dozens of summer reads may not be in the cards this year for me. I was flirting with the idea of picking a couple of classics. I haven’t read any classics in a really long time and I am in that weird reflection of life stage that one goes through now and then. Quiet contemplation sounds peaceful to me.
Coffee, a little Bible studying and then off to student ministry.
I have a few commitments this week. Simon and Schuster’s Fall Preview, a couple of meetings outside of work, and Camp Leader training. I cannot believe that Camp is coming up so fast. We aren’t going to the mountains so my knees should hold up as long as I’m careful.
I just finished The Last Word by Taylor Adams. What a wild ride that was! I will post the review soon. Not sure what I will read next. I have something I really need to work on this next week so I probably won’t pick another book until after Mother’s Day.
Nothing. I come home, set-up my diffuser and dive into Bible studies. We may head out to see the new Guardians movie. I am waiting for my son’s reaction first.
The Hub fell into the Narcos rabbit hole. He is now watching Narcos Mexico. Sometimes I will watch a scene or two but these days, I want relaxing content and that show is very intense.
- Allergy meds. I was desperate to make the vertigo stop so added Claritin to the line-up and it’s helping, a lot.
- My daughter got called back for the role of Violet in 9 to 5! This would be for the Fall. It’s a really good role for her. Send your good luck vibes.
I hope you have a lovely week filled with good reading.

I love this time of year as well and loved what you said about — peaceful contemplation and reflection – that’s me right now. I am finally back to reading as mye eye surgeries are over and everything looks beautiful again – i was missing out on so much.
congrats to your daughter! have a good week.
So glad the surgeries went well!!
Violet in 9 to 5 would be so much fun! Fingers crossed.
I also binge watched Narcos; it is so well done! But, I didn’t continue to the Mexico series.
You’ve been so busy with church events, I am sure that is feeding your need for peace.
Church does keep me busy but those are the only events that I find peace in. Ha.
It seems like I’ve been reading longer books this year, and not quite as many as usual. Which classics are you considering?
Fingers crossed for your daughter… what a great role!
Kafka’s The Castle, is a book that I’ve wanted to read forever. It’s one of Haruki Murakami’s favorite books.
Thackaray’s Vanity Fair Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina
To name a few.
I hope she gets the role. Are you really adding classics to your summer list?! hmm
I will be adding one for sure. Possibly two.
I hope your daughter has success.
