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.


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


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?


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?


Readers Imbibing Peril XIII (R.I.P.)


I don’t know what it is about the above graphic but it freaks me out. It reminds me of American Horror Story, I guess.

Anyway, it’s that time again! Time for the only reading challenge I participate in. I believe it runs from September 1st to October 31st.

Here are the details :

Welcome to the THIRTEENTH year of Readers Imbibing Peril, or RIP, as it is affectionately called. For the last 13 years, we here at RIP headquarters have embraced the spookiness of the seasons’ change.

The purpose of the R.I.P. Challenge is to enjoy books that could be classified as:

Dark Fantasy.
The emphasis is never on the word challenge, instead it is about coming together as a community and embracing the autumnal mood, whether the weather is cooperative where you live or not.

The goals are simple. 

1. Have fun reading.

2. Share that fun with others.

The one thing that I love about this challenge is that you can read one book and still participate AND you can also watch movies.

I don’t have a reading list yet but for full details and to sign-up for the fun, click here.

What will you be reading?
