Sunday Matters: Rain & Clouds

Sunday Matters

For those of us in California, weather is always a topic of discussion and after two very warm days, clouds and drizzle moved in making it a cozy weekend.

Right Now:

I’m just sitting here watching the grass grow. Literally. I mentioned the gopher issue and now there is some animal rooting through the loose soil. Who knew that putting in grass would be so challenging?

Once I pull myself away from the window, we’ll head to church and volleyball and maybe squeeze in some lunch.

This Week:

Shrek rehearsals are coming along and rehearsals for Grease begin on Tuesday. Also on Tuesday is my life group meeting. I think I need to take a look at my calendar because the rest is a blur. Still trying to figure out what to do for Mother’s Day since we will also be celebrating The Hub’s birthday that day too.

Reading:

Finishing up Murakami. Starting Nesbø’s The Thirst. There’s a lot of hype for Under the Harrow. Have you read it? I just picked up a copy based on all the reviews.

Watching:

Nothing. Just old shows. Haven’t added any new ones but The Hub is trying to get me to watch Better Call Saul.  I want to watch The Handmaid’s Tale but I don’t have Hulu.

Making:

I made spaghetti the other night, My kids hate spaghetti. They’re so weird. Haven’t made much else and for this week, a trip to the store is needed and you know how I am about going to the store.

Grateful for:

My physical medicine doctor. I just had another round of shots for my neck and although I am having a tough time of it today, I know in a day or two I’ll be feeling pretty good. When I first went to him two months ago, he didn’t even have to touch me to know where the issue was.

What’s happening with you this weekend?

Sunday Matters: Plans

Sunday Matters

Are we really in the last weekend of April? This entire month passed me by. I’ve not been wanting May to arrive because of all the stuff going on with my sister but guess what? It’s nearly here and there’s nothing to be done about it. For now, I will attempt to focus on the positive.

Right Now:

I’m a space cadet today. This horrendous wind has not helped. I always feel so scattered when it’s windy. My hair is all over the place and as dry as a broomstick. Coffee is always good but isn’t helping much. The plus side to being spaced out is that people don’t expect much from you.

This Week:

The Hub’s birthday is on Tuesday! We will celebrate it this weekend. His plans involve food and Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2. My son is working tech for Bring it On! – The Musical so I’m not sure if he will be able to join us but I believe he’s already purchased a ticket for the premier.

Other than that. Work. Rehearsal. Volleyball. Yep, volleyball was added to the list. Not for me but for my daughter. She wants to play in high school so she’s refreshing her skills for the next ten Sundays.

I titled this post PLANS because it’s time to really zero in on high school and what my daughter will be taking. She auditions for choir on May 8th. It’s also time to think about our Memorial Day plans not to mention whatever plans I can make regarding my sister’s situation That stuff can’t even be planned which is making me a little crazy. If you pray, I could use a few prayers. We really need a miracle to happen.

Reading:

I finished Please Look After Mom and it was very good. If you want a book to really move you, then be sure to get a copy.

I am currently enjoying Men Without Women (Murakami) and I’ve pulled out my copy of Walden because for some reason I feel the need to bond with nature. Have you read it?

Watching:

The series finale for Bates Motel was not surprising but extremely well-done. This means that I have nothing to watch. Lately I’ve been content to stare at walls (can’t focus) so maybe not having anything to watch is okay.

Making:

I went to the store and actually bought groceries. I made a chicken and sun-dried tomato pasta dish which was very delicious and gave me plenty to pack for lunch. I also made a chicken stir fry. Organic chicken was on sale at the market! Never happens. I should have bought more. I bought stuff to make split pea soup with my leftover ham bone from Easter. There will be a pizza night at some point this week as well.

Grateful for:

Weekends. Even when I have a lot scheduled, a busy weekend beats a busy work day anytime.
