Sunday Matters: Yes, It’s Me! On a Sunday!

Sunday Matters

I bet you all thought I’d given up on Sunday posts. Nope. My Macbook picked up the Adobe Flash virus that was supposedly addressed long ago in one of the security updates but they lied. It was a nasty, bugger of a thing and took no less than four weeks to find and fix,  I work in Information Technology so this was like a slap in the face.

Right Now:

I am just getting my day started. First up, coffee. Then, church, volunteer/leader training at church, then middle-school ministry. Tonight, not much. Hopefully we can just relax a little although there is a math test The Girl needs to study for.

This Week:

Classes start for The Teen and classes also start at the university I work at. I have a few things on the calendar this week including back-to-school night. It will be busy but not too bad.

I am also looking for a new car. My beloved Honda is approaching the 200K mark. I am loyal to Honda but drove a Subaru and was impressed. I really don’t know what to get now.

Reading:

I am reading The Girls in the Garden for an upcoming tour and it’s really good. 

Watching:

I finished Stranger Things and loved it. All the hype is true. Get on over to Netflix and jump in.

Making:

Hmmm. We’ve been grabbing takeout a lot. Not a fan of too much takeout but one has to go to the market if one wants to cook something at home. The market. Ugh. Not sure what I’ll make this week as I don’t have time to hit the store.

Grateful for:

Family time. We are always doing our own thing but it’s nice when we do come together for a meal or a quick drive to the beach, etc.

What are you up to today?

Sunday Matters: Enjoying the Last Bit of Summer

Sunday Matters

With school just around the corner, I am trying my best to get every last drop out of summer that I can. I really want to get a road trip in but with the Teen’s work schedule it may not happen.

Right Now:

I am enjoying my first cup of coffee and then we are heading off to church.

This Week:

The Girl register’s for 8th grade this week and I offered to take her and her friend to the movies right after. They want to see a horror movie! I am not entirely on board with that one. We’ll see.

I also have book club this week. We’ll be discussing The Book of Aron. In a lot of ways it was a tough book to read but I felt it was written with a light hand in some places which made it a quick read.

Reading:

I am almost done with Sweetbitter. It’s a very accurate behind the scenes depiction of restaurant life, but I’m not loving it at the moment.

Watching:

I finally finished last season’s Fear the Walking Dead. It starts up again in August. I still have American Horror Story and Bates Motel to catch-up on. I watched the movie Stage Door which was pretty good. I’d like to get one more movie in before I return to work tomorrow.

Making:

I am going to make Spaghetti and Turkey meatballs in the Crock Pot today. IF, I can get them assembled before we take off for church.

Grateful for:

Quiet time. I really crave quiet moments and this past week I’ve had several.

That’s it from me, tell me about your weekend or your upcoming week.
