Sunday Matters: Uh, Hello

Sunday Matters

It’s so easy for the week to slip past me. Especially while reading Ulysses. I’ve been MIA this week because Ulysses requires all of my attention and that means other books do not get read. The struggle is real.

Right Now:

My Sunday schedule is pretty much the same. We go to church, I go into panic mode over not having shopped for the week and then I head back to church to hang with the middle-schoolers. But every Sunday manages to be different which keeps it interesting.

This Week:

Not much happening this week besides Shrek auditions. I’ve filled my daughter up with all the home remedies for sickness because she always, ALWAYS gets sick for auditions. She started to sneeze on Thursday. I refuse to let the sickness in so she has had every home remedy you can think of.

She is not a fan of me right now. Who gags on honey? She does.

Reading:

I’m still reading Ulysses for the read-along. It’s a bit of a slog and I took an unintended three-day break from it so now I am feeling a bit behind.

This is what I really want to read:

Lincoln in the Bardo

Everyone is reading Lincoln in the Bardo and I feel SO left out.  It sounds fascinating. Abraham Lincoln, a ghost and strange happenings. Fabulous.

Watching:

Oh man. Bates Motel. I just finished  watching the episodes from last season. What a show. The new season begins this week and it looks absolutely crazy. Norman. Such a piece of work he is.

The Walking Dead is on tonight and I am hoping it has a little more pep than last week’s mid-season opener which was a real yawn-fest. I still managed to talk about it no less than 12 times this past week though.

Making:

I feel like grilling. I also feel like making up some casseroles but my kids are not fans of casseroles.

Grateful for:

Camaraderie. It’s feels good to get together with people and just BE. No pressure. No facades.

How are you all doing? California had a monster storm. It was named Lucifer. It lived up to its name.

Sunday Matters: Sunday Sure Comes Up Fast

Sunday Matters

Why are the weekdays so long and the weekends so short?

This past week was okay but I wasn’t feeling great and our water heater decided to spring a leak which required replacement and I had something going on nearly every night but here I am, none the worse for wear.

Right Now:

Besides the normal stuff that make up my Sunday morning, I’ll be bowling this afternoon! I haven’t bowled in years. Not sure if I will actually be able to participate given my neck pain but we shall see.

This Week:

My daughter starts rehearsals for Shrek on Monday. Auditions for leads are the following week. I know she is wanting to be Teen Fiona but she is also trying to decide on a fairy tale character to go for too. Little Red Riding Hood is a good pick but they seem to want someone younger for that role.

My son’s classes are all ironed out now and he is entering week 2 of the semester. On top of his studies he’s looking for extra work and wants to dabble in community arts by getting involved with the local arts commission. All the talk about defunding the National Endowment for the Arts has him all fired up.

NEA

Also happening this week, Valentine’s Day. I will be at the doctor. It was the only appointment I could snag so I took it. We don’t really go out for it anyway. Too busy and crowded for my taste.

Reading:

Ulysses. (#ulyssesRAL2017)

Quote from Ulysses by James Joyce

I am trying really hard to read other books in between because Ulysses requires many breaks but I’m finding it hard to return to it when I do step away. Part two is such a chunk. I may have to drop everything just to get it read.

Watching:

Not much but tonight I will be watching The Walking Dead. Cue the streamers!!!!

Making:

Dinner better make itself or deliver itself to my house tonight because all I want to think about is The Walking Dead and nothing else.

Grateful for:

People with a good sense of humor. If you’re funny, I love you. That’s all I need to say.
