Sunday Matters: Still Sunday, But Late

Sunday Matters

It’s been a busy, fun weekend. We attended an 80s party last night. Hosted by a friend I had not seen in nearly thirty years. It was an awesome party. We had so much fun. 

Right Now:

We had a big event for the junior high ministry which just ended a little while ago. Over 140 students, a rock wall, music and yes, craziness. I am just now sitting down which is why this comes to you late tonight.

This Week:

I have a few appointments this week and the call back list for the show posts Tuesday afternoon. That’s it though. 

Reading:

I need to finish a book for a tour and then I am not sure what to read. My library holds are not cooperating at all.  

Watching:

My DVR has an episode of Fear the Walking Dead that I need to watch, as well as an American Horror Story but I didn’t get to watch anything this weekend. 

Making:

I don’t even know why I ask this anymore. It’s not that I am too busy to plan meals. It’s more like I just don’t want to take the time to do it these days.  

Grateful for:

My sweet little pup. She is seriously the sweetest dog and always so happy when we come home.  Such a warm, warm welcome. 

That’s it. Hope you had a nice weekend. 

Sunday Matters: A Tiny Glimpse of Fall

Sunday Matters

This past week began with clouds and drizzle. Of course, this happened AFTER my husband washed both cars. I didn’t even care though. Driving to work at 5 a.m. meant that I had to wear a sweater! Yes!! And, it remained cool for most of the week. It was glorious.

The cooler weather means that soon it will be time for this although today it is expected to be 105 degrees.

Right Now:

Getting some coffee into me. I was up many times waiting for The Teen to come home. He worked a sixteen hour shift because Fright Fest kicked off last night. He came home very late and was exhausted but he’s off today.

This Week:

I may or may not attend Math Night on Tuesday. I know. Sounds so fun! Not. 

Auditions for Joseph are this week and both The Teen And The Girl will be auditioning.

I think that’s it. 

Reading:

I finished The Dogs of Littlefield. Mixed feelings about that one. I am supposed to start a book for a book tour, The Yard but I haven’t yet. I really want to read something for the R.I.P challenge but none of my books are available from the library.

Watching:

American Horror Story started up and it seems very old school in the horror department. This could be good…or bad.

Fear the Walking Dead is lukewarm. I keep watching because the potential for being good is there but at the end of an episode I find myself wanting.

Making:

We are getting Chinese  take-out tonight. Not exactly football food but I have middle-school ministry tonight and haven’t hit the market. 

Grateful for:

We finally managed to refinance our house. We bought in 2007 when prices were through the roof. Our payments were $4000 a month and our property values dropped by half so that made it impossible to refinance. 

Many had to walk away from their homes. We prayed a lot and finally, we were able to refinance. I can’t even begin to tell you how relieved I am. 

What are you up to today?
