Whatnot – 06/15/22

The Otter Pup in the sun.Our little pup should have been named “Sunny” because she loves the sun so much. She could never survive in a cold climate. She searches the house all day for the perfect sunny spot and usually finds it. This is her in the loft. She is slightly miffed because my daughter moved her keyboard there and now her pillow is not in the right position. I will fix this situation immediately. 

How are you? What summer plans do you have? Any plans for Father’s Day? With California’s inflation and gas prices, we find ourselves spending more time at home and I am fine with it. No big summer plans except that I head to summer camp with the high schoolers next week. I am volunteering on Sunday so we hope to do something for Father’s Day this Saturday but guess what? All three of us have dental appointments. We will do something after those morning appointments.

As for reading, I finished The Swimmers. The review posts this Friday. It was very good and packed a punch for such a slim novel. We are discussing it tonight for book club.

I am currently reading It All Comes Down to This and it’s very good as well. Not sure what I will pick up next. I’ve been on a roll and I don’t want to jinx it.

Oh, if you missed my summer list, check it out here!

Have a great week and tell me what you are reading!

Sunday Matters: All Kinds of Reading Going On

sunday-matters (1)
I don’t want to talk too much about it because I will jinx myself but the reading is going well. I am catching up on all my review copies and have already put a dent in my summer reading list. This is very good and it makes me happy. Especially since they’ve all been really good reads.

This week CSI Vegas is filming right across the street from my house. It’s been a little crazy with parking, large equipment and the like but the one thing that killed me was the cutting down of a very large tree. It may not have been part of the shoot because the city was there too but now that that beautiful tree is gone, the east side of my house gets all the morning sun. Nice, but also much warmer as the AC has already kicked on.

Right Now:

I am headed to student ministry. We are “at the movies” for summer programming and it’s always a fun series, where clips of a movie are shared in-between a lesson of sorts. It’s enjoyable, especially when popcorn is enjoyed.


I finished and reviewed Sea of Tranquility. What a unique story. My next read is It All Comes Down To This by Therese Anne Fowler.

It All Comes Down to This


We finished Stranger Things, Season 4, Part One. It definitely had its moments but overall, it left me wanting more. That show doesn’t do well when everyone is split up.

We are looking at Korean dramas again. Many of you recommended some so we will decide this weekend what our next lazy watch will be.

Grateful for:

  • This time with The Girl home. She is working full time but when she is home, it’s nice to hear her singing again. The pup is in heaven.
  • My church family. There are some really good people in my circle.

Have a wonderful Sunday!
