Sunday Matters: Hello, October

Sunday Matters

I am still waiting to hear from some of you who were affected by Ian. I hope and pray that your properties were spared. It HAD to be terrifying to witness. The images coming out of Fort Myers are unbelievable.  Praying that the clean-up can begin soon and that power is restored quickly.

Right Now:

My routine on Sunday is pretty static. Student ministry from 8:30am-1pm but today my husband begins training for his new volunteer position (security for the church). So while I am wandering around with the students, he will be with the main service being trained for that team.

This Week:

This week is a busy one. My church is hosting their very first 3-day revival 10/3-10/5. Basically it’s three nights of teaching and worship but our student group is meeting early for food and then we will attend together.

My daughter’s 19th birthday is this week as well. 19!

On a not so great note, my son is getting laid off from the museum after four months. Their finances are not good. He moved out there for that job and has a lease and bought all that furniture so he is applying in the area hoping to find something soon. Root Beer the cat isn’t concerned at all. She just hops in the stroller and says it will be okay. Prayers and good thoughts appreciated.


Finishing up the new Irving book. When a book is nearly 1000 pages and so good, you can’t blow through it. I need to pick up a shorter book to read alongside it.


Hocus Pocus and its sequel are on my list to watch this weekend. The new season of Cobra Kai not pulling me in, so far. Maybe it will pick up.

Grateful for:

  • Bullet blenders that can whip a handful of spinach and blueberries into a fortifying smoothie. I’m trying to up my nutrition and this is a quick way to do it.
  • Docking stations that allow me to connect my new MacBook to a larger screen and keyboard.

Have a great week!

Whatnot – 08/24/22

Fisherman's Village - Marina Del ReyThis Saturday we have a scheduled power outage that will last all day long. It’s too warm to be in the house without AC so after the celebration of life we will be attending that morning for a dear friend who passed away in April, we will grab the pup and head to Fisherman’s Village in Marina Del Rey. It’s been a really long time since I’ve visited. Ten plus years, maybe more. It will be a nice break from the routine. 

Work is going okay but we have an ant problem in the office. My space isn’t that bad but they can’t spray because of sensitivities and traps are not doing it. Every once in awhile one crawls up my leg. Ewwwww.

Last Sunday student ministry had a paint war. It’s exactly what it sounds like. Students running at each other, and ME with handfuls of paint powder. I was covered and it is now three days later and my neck is still green. All the other colors came off easily but the green is holding. I look like She Hulk. It was so much fun though.

In case you haven’t noticed, I pulled the trigger on going ad free so no more disgusting ads to wade through when you visit me here! For $2 a month I should have done it sooner.

The RIP Challenge is coming. It’s going to be on Twitter and Instagram only. I am no way near getting my list together. I TANKED with my summer list. Chunkster reading got in my way. But, it’s one of my fave events so I will spend some time this weekend coming up with something.

I am going to end this here. As you can tell my brain is zipping around into too many directions. I hope you have a fabulous Wednesday. Friday will be here soon.

Still reading Irving’s The Last Chairlift. My review of Verity posted yesterday. Stop by to check it out.
