Sunday Matters: Seeing Green

Sunday Matters

We are in week 1 of Shrek the Musical so my time around here will be brief this week and next.

Right Now:

I am not working the show today AND my daughter’s cast is not in today’s show either so we will be celebrating Father’s Day. The Hub never made formal plans but food will be involved, for sure.

Later tonight, we kick off a new year in student ministry. This time, high school. I’m a little nervous.

This Week:

Shrek.

I really have to buckle down and read my tour book and one other book. Time! I need more of it.

Reading:

I am almost done with Perennials, which is the book I picked up because I missed going to camp this year. It is good and pretty much what I needed. Review to come soon. It doesn’t replace the camp experience but it gives me all the feels.

Watching:

My son came home after work and queued up  Oh, Hello on Broadway. It’s on Netflix. It’s a two-man show and it’s very funny. Like, laugh out loud funny. I highly recommend it. It does have some language so be careful if the kids are in the room.

What do you know? Fear the Walking Dead suddenly got good. I’ll keep it in the rotation as long as it stays good.

Making:

I can barely feed The Girl during production week so no, I am not making anything. She is a healthy eater though so finding healthy fast food is a challenge sometimes. Hard to plan eating time into it too when you are rushing from work to the theatre.

Grateful for:

Live theatre. I’ve had the privilege of working backstage for many shows and I’ve seen these kids grow into the performers they are today. Some of them could barely look you in the eye when they started and now they are singing solos to a sold out house and dancing their pants off (sometimes literally).

Live theatre. It changes lives. Put your kids in theatre or support live theatre by attending a show instead of a movie one weekend. It really makes a difference.

Sunday Matters: Here We Go

It’s official. Production week has started for Shrek. The Girl is very excited because it’s brand new to this theatre company and the costumes are amazing. I have to check the schedule every single day to make sure she is where she needs to be at the right time, but that’s okay.

Right Now:

I am sitting here contemplating whether or not to have a poached egg with my toast. In a bit we will be off to church, volleyball and then home to watch the Tony awards! No student ministry tonight because they are off to camp.

This Week:

Besides production week not much is going on personally. I officially start my summer reading this week and this year I might even read the books on my list.

Reading:

Finishing up The Thirst and then it’s Do Not Be Alarmed and The Gypsy Moth Summer for a book tour.

Watching:

Fear the Walking Dead started. Holy Cheeses that shows sucks. I keep giving it chances but it continues to be horrible. I love three of the characters but really want the mom to get killed off.

Making:

My son invited his girlfriend over to watch the Tony awards so maybe I will do a taco bar.

The rest of the week will be up in the air because of production week. Getting The Girl fed and planning for healthy meals is always a challenge. She eats healthy so a quick trip through a drive-thru doesn’t work with her.

Grateful for:

A quiet Sunday evening at home.
