Sunday Matters: I Will Survive

Sunday Matters

Don’t mind me over here, being all dramatic but it’s hard having two injured knees. All the over-compensating wears me out and leaves me totally exhausted. Hopefully I will see some improvement soon. No fractures but torn everything. Soft tissue injuries are a beast.

Right Now:

A quick bite to eat and I am off to student ministry. Later, a long nap on the couch.

This Week:

I have a few small appointments this week but my evenings are good and wide open. REST and reading. That’s my plan.

Reading:

I finished My Name is Lucy Barton for book club and it was very good. I need to review it. When I picked it up I didn’t realize there are two other books out with the same character. I’m happy to have a couple more books to read because I really liked it.

Right now I am reading One of the Girls by Lucy Clarke and it’s very good.

One of the Girls

Watching:

We watched Halloween Ends, the latest in the Halloween franchise. It was not good. If you want to see how Michael Myers can be  turned into a side-kick in his own  movie, then give it a look.

Grateful for:

  • Stōk cold brew coffee in a bottle. Makes a nice late afternoon pick me up without spending a wad of cash.
  • My back patio. I don’t have all the outdoor furniture that I’d like but it’s a pleasant spot to spend some time.

Have a great week!

Sunday Matters: The End to a Very Busy Week

Sunday Matters

Wow!! What a week! My church hosted their very first Revival. It was three nights of worship and teaching and student ministry met beforehand for food and fun. I tell ya, it was transformative but man, I am wiped out.

Right Now:

Heading to church now to hang with the students. The Hub is working all three services on the security team so we will take separate cars and meet up later.

Later this afternoon the Halloween decorations will go up outside! If I can get The Hub to take them down from the attic. Sending me up on a ladder is not a good idea.

This Week:

This week should be a lot more manageable. I don’t have much scheduled. The only thing I need to do is plan for my little get-together on 10/18. It’s a dessert night and I am selecting the desserts now.

I need to buy some fall outfits. I HATE to shop for clothes but lately it’s been necessary since I am back in the office part of the week. I’ve been buying pieces here and there and it’s beginning to add up to something.

Son update, after getting laid off he has received a job offer! He will be working with youth and event programming. It pays more than what he was making at the museum and the benefits are better. Win.

Reading:

Not much, honestly. The new King book is screaming for my attention but some personal stuff has pulled me away from reading, yet again.

Watching:

I never did see Hocus Pocus 2 because the night we had planned to watch it The Hub decided to fix a toilet.

Grateful for:

  • Ice. Without details, I managed to injure my good leg.
  • This pup. She is a good little nurse.

Have a great week!
