Sunday Matters: Fall is Almost Here

Sunday Matters

It has cooled down lots around here. We’ve had beautiful 85 degree days and the prettiest skies. I even lit a candle the other day! It feels so good to have cooler weather. I am also so glad that the weather in this country has calmed down a little.  I was so worried when Irma hit but I think I’ve touched base with most of you and the majority of you came out of it okay. I know this was not the case with all of you so I pray that the clean-up and rebuilding goes smoothly.

Right Now:

Just lounging around for a minute and then it’s laundry and all the other stuff I need to do. Some of which will be taken up by dress shopping for homecoming!

This Week:

Music Man auditions are this week. That’s always fun. My life group meets on Tuesday. There are volleyball games and pictures and homecoming at the end of the week.

Guess what? My son was accepted into Disney’s College Program! He leaves in January for at least one semester. If you are not familiar with it, he will be working at Disney World Orlando and taking classes as part of the program. He is very excited. He needed a little good news and he got it.


I finished My Absolute Darling and it was a real kick in the gut. Not like A Little Life but similar in how brutal the story is. I keep using “brutal” to describe it but that is truly the word that my mind spits out over and over again.

I just started Bird Box for RIP XII and The Lathe of Heaven for book club.

Don’t forget that King’s new book comes out later this month! Join me for the read along. Click the button below for info:


  • Fear the Walking Dead (it seems to have gotten boring again)
  • American Horror Story: Cult (it’s full of clowns and if the main character continues to scream and cry all the time, I am going to lose it).

I feel like watching a comedy classic but not sure which one. Maybe Some Like it Hot.


It’s not even remotely cold but chili sounds good. The question is, will I actually make some? You know what also sounds good? Apple pie. You can make a meal out if that, right?

Grateful for:

I’ve expanded my volunteer hours to include a new area of need and it’s been good. Really good. My goal this year was to connect more with people and this opportunity certainly allows me to do that.

What about you? Tell me what’s been going on in your life.

This is an unstructured read along and purely for fun. There are no scheduled readings. Discussion will also be unstructured and happen on Twitter using the hashtag #sleepingbeautiesRAL. The goal here is to read the book with friends!

I will post a review and recap shortly after 10/31 so we will also be able to discuss the book there when we are all done.
