Sunday Matters: Rhythms

Sunday Matters

Getting back into a routine is hard after so much time off. It’s always hard but everything post COVID seems a tad harder. Is it just me? Plus, my house is out of sorts with the kitty cat around. Whatever I put away, she pulls out. Everything is a toy to her. Hair ties, pieces of paper, socks, you name it. All over the house. She is so darn cute though and she knows it. 

Right Now:

I am headed to student ministry. Later? I’ve been in the mood to cook something so maybe I will. Maybe I won’t. Ha! I like the idea of home cooking for the kid before she heads back but she is often not here.

This Week:

Monday is MLK day so I have that day off. Wednesday I have book club and we are discussing Lessons in Chemistry. I enjoyed it a lot. Emma heads back to Missouri on Saturday and begins classes that week. 

Reading:

I have an entire list of review copies I need to get to but I just got one that just sounds like a lot of fun (The Block Party) but it isn’t released until July so I may wait to read it. Maybe I will read Demon Copperhead next. 

Watching:

I did watch The Glass Onion (Knives Out 2, kind of). It was silly. Kind of fun to watch but no case to really solve. Not like the first movie. We also watched Bullet Train. Entertaining with lots of action but not what I expected. It’s a comedy. Many funny moments. 

Grateful for:

  • My son’s short visit in March. 
  • Meal prepping. I do so much better when my work lunches are planned ahead of time. 
  • Super green drink powders. My body always feels depleted so at least I know I am getting what I need when I down these green drinks. I haven’t gotten a subscription to any yet but I may do so soon. 

How was your week and what’s coming up?

Whatnot – 01/11/23

Reading.The holidays have ended for me and I am back in the office . We had a nice Christmas and New Years. Most of us got sick (Hub and myself), just bad colds but it was nice to be able to stay home and rest. All plans cancelled. Numerous naps, movies, reading. I am still wrapping up my first book of the year, Lessons in Chemistry. I missed all the “first book” hoopla because just the thought of writing a post gave me a headache but I do love that event and cheered for all the picks from my sick bed. You all picked some good ones. 

My days at home have been filled with cat wrangling. Jinx wants to play. She is only 4 months old but the Otter Pup sees her playing as bullying. Honestly, she is a thug and a bit rough. She is climbing all over everything and the pup feels responsible for her so she’s been a nervous wreck. Jinx and my daughter head back 1/21. It went by super fast, although my pup probably doesn’t think that. 

We’ve been enjoying some weather. A Bomb Cyclone which brought lots of rain and snow to the mountains. My yard flooded at one point but then the rain just stopped and that gave it all a chance to drain away. As I type this, it’s really coming down out there.  

I am going to keep this brief because being back at work is rough after so much time off but I just wanted to check in and wish everyone a good 2023.

How are you?

Chatting with friends about books and life…
