Sunday Matters: A Little Rest

Sunday Matters

This will be brief because with the long weekend and all, I am going to take a break and do nothing. Plus, I tacked on a few extra days to celebrate my birthday! It’s a milestone birthday for me and I am all over the place with how I feel about it. It’s not until Wednesday but it’s looming.

Right Now:

I plan to eat a huge breakfast, drink tons of coffee and read.

This Week:

Back to school night is this week. It’s high school and many parents don’t go  but The Girl’s choir performs and I like to meet the teachers to get a sense for what will be expected throughout the year. Personality tells you a lot.

There is also one volleyball game and book club and I still haven’t read the book.

Reading:

I guess I will be reading my book club book. Exit West.

Watching:

When I have time to watch TV I usually tune in to home improvement shows like Fixer Upper. I also like shows about purchasing beach front properties. Cooking shows are a comfort to me but are there any good ones anymore?

Making:

Don’t plan to make a thing. However, somewhere in the plan there needs to be a really good burger.

Grateful for:

Long weekends and extra days off.

What do you have planned for today or tomorrow, if you are lucky enough to have it off?

Sunday Matters: My Extra Long Birthday Weekend!

Sunday Matters

The Labor Day holiday falls on my birthday so I get my birthday off which is really nice. And, because I did my much-needed car shopping mid-week I do not have to spend it at the dealership. Plus, the middle-school ministry is not meeting because of the holiday weekend so I have a Sunday evening to myself.  Triple win.

Here is me, at 10 o’clock, Wednesday night at the dealership. I was tired and had not eaten since that morning so forgive the deer in the headlights look.

Me and my new car!
Me and my new Subaru Forester.

Right Now:

The Teen had a really bad case of food poisoning Friday night which he hasn’t fully recovered from so hopefully he can join us today. The plan is to head to Santa Barbara right after church. Or maybe Solvang and then Santa Barbara. I haven’t quite decided but I feel the need to get out-of-town for the day.

This Week:

No work on Monday. Medical appointments for the kids on Wednesday but not really much else. The Teen is adapting to his full college and work schedule and The Girl’s schedule is beginning to pick up.

Reading:

I am reading After the Parade by Lori Ostlund and it’s quite good so far.

After the Parade

I need to sit down for a few minutes to figure out my list for the R.I.P Challenge.  Will you be joining in on the fun too?

Watching:

I haven’t been watching much lately. With the car shopping, back-to-school night and the test that The Girl needed help studying for, I haven’t  spent a lot of time in front of the TV this past week.

Making:

I have yet to cook anything but I bought food! This week I plan to make spaghetti, chicken tacos, a chicken stir-fry and tuna salad. I have a craving for tuna salad.

Grateful for:

I am very happy and grateful to be able to spend this long weekend with my family. The Teen took off from work and even though he’s been sick with food poisoning it’s nice to have him home. I am also grateful for the teachers that my daughter has this year. She had a great academic team last year so I was really praying for an excellent team this year, too.

That’s it from me. What is happening in your world?
