Sunday Matters: The Week Got Away From Me

Sunday Matters

Good morning and Happy Mother’s Day to those who celebrate it. It’s so early this year and as each year passes, it become less of a thing for me. Once you hit a certain age, a nice meal, a trip to the bookstore and maybe even a nap constitutes an excellent day. We did that yesterday because I have church activities today.

Right Now:

I have to start the day with a strong cup of coffee. I don’t drink much coffee but that first cup is always good. Not sure if I will actually attend the big service today at church. It will be crowded. I may opt to watch online but I will head in for youth group after it.

This Week:

My daughter gets shot #2 tomorrow!

I don’t have much else going on. There is a fall preview with one of the publishing houses which I plan to attend on Wednesday. I made up my summer book list which I will post soon. It’s for 20 Books of Summer although I am doing the 10 book option.

Reading:

My reading hit a wall after my second shot. I thought I’d rest and read but that splitting headache prevented that from happening. The same books I mentioned last week are still waiting for me. I will get to them eventually. Those are Dear Edward and The Invisible Husband of Frick Island. I still have to review Rules of Civility too!

Watching:

Couldn’t watch much either. I don’t experience headaches too often so when they hit I can’t read or watch anything. Just sit in a dark room. The pup stayed with me and even skipped her meals for me. She is just too sweet. She even checked my temp at one point, the same way I check hers, by booping her nose. She had a very concerned look on her face after booping mine.

Grateful for:

  • It’s goes without saying but I will say it anyway. So grateful to be done with shot #2. I heard that Moderna is testing their booster now.

Keeping this short. Have a wonderful day!

Sunday Matters: The Month Go-Eth

Sunday Matters

It goes without saying that time is flying. I’m not sure where it began to speed up but the school year is nearly over. After a year on pause, here we go. Are you ready? The one thing that this pandemic has done is carve out for me what is NOT important in my life. I’ve always wanted to live simply. I tend to not need much. I like it that way. I think that mindset bothers my kids though.

Right Now:

My Sundays are pretty set. Church, youth group, a walk with the Hub and pup and then maybe some takeout later or dinner out.

This Week:

It’s time for cap and gown pick-up for my high school senior. She will drive down to get that and some other grad items on Monday.

Thursday, The Hub gets shot #2 (Moderna).

I have a couple of items for work but doable. No biggies.

I will be spending some time this week trying to find another hair stylist. After not hearing from her for ages, and my hair being totally out of control, I contacted her and she is out of business. I am kind of hurt that she didn’t tell me. I have been going to her for about 12 years now. I knew all about her kids and she knew about mine. I know her situation cannot be fully known by me but man, it made me sad.

Reading:

Because of that wave of sadness that hit me, I gave up on Good Neighbors. Those opening pages took a lot of work to get through and I was not feeling it. Maybe I will pick it up again some other time because it’s pretty well-reviewed.

Instead, I picked up Broken by Jenny Lawson. I received a review copy and although I am not a huge fan of funny books or memoir type books, I opened it up to the first story and it immediately pulled me out of my pathetic (I lost my hair dresser) funk.

Also, you have today and tomorrow to enter my giveaway for a chance to win a copy of Promises to Keep!

Watching:

I thought we had watched Marcella on Netflix but then I realized we had not so we have been watching season one and it’s very good. A serial killer returns, it’s British, it’s good.

Will you all be watching the Oscars tonight? I’ve not seen any of the movies but it is usually a fun event to watch. I’ll give it a go and if it doesn’t do it for me I will watch Fear the Walking Dead which I still hope redeems itself.

Grateful for:

  • Service opportunities. More on that later.
  • So grateful that the pup is not allergic to bees. She stepped on a bee again on one of her walks and instantly thought I did something to her which is so weird. She has since forgiven me.
  • Antibacterial anything. Something bit my hand after some yard work. It got infected. I am self-treating it but it’s turning a corner. Thankfully.

What are you doing today? What do you have going on this week?
