Sunday Matters: Easter at Home

Sunday Matters

This past week was a little nuts. Work, volunteering, registration for a new show. I used to do a lot more than that and it was no biggie but these days one or two appointments outside of the normal stuff kind of makes me crazy. But, all went well and lots got done.

Right Now:

Happy Easter! We hit the Easter service on Friday to avoid the masses so I slept in this morning and it felt great. Plus, I don’t have to go anywhere later. We are staying home, eating a good meal and just lounging around like sloths.

This Week:

I am meeting up with my life group on Tuesday to decide which day we’ll meet now that the series is over. I can’t wait to see what the new topic is.

I have a follow-up for my neck injury on Thursday. The shots are wearing off. I think I may need another round. Will it ever heal?

Reading:

The Barrowfields is really good and I am almost done with it. I’m thinking about reading Walden next. I’ve never read it!

Watching:

Bates Motel is really good. Only two episodes left! That show is giving me fits. It’s so well shot. So well-acted. Every time Norman becomes Norma I die. Seriously, I die.

Making:

I haven’t cooked all that much but if heating things up and picking up cooked items at the market counts then I am doing okay. Picked up a roasted turkey breast and then made mashed potatoes and maple glazed carrots for one night. Bought some gourmet take and bake pizzas for another night.

Right now the apricot & mustard glazed ham is the oven and it will be served with au gratin potatoes, gluten-free cornbread dressing and creamed spinach. There will be dessert too. A chocolate chip cheesecake!

Grateful for:

Lunch room conversations. In the past, I would find a quiet spot to eat lunch but about three months ago, I started to eat lunch in the work lunch room. A place where no one really ate lunch, oddly enough. But then, people started showing up and now we have the best lunch time conversations. My word this year is “Connect” so I’m trying really hard to make those connections.

What are you doing to today? What is a must-read book you can recommend to me?

Sunday Matters: The Easter Edition

Sunday Matters


Right Now:

Happy Easter! Normally we’d be heading out to church right now, but our church had several Easter services to choose from so we attended service on Friday. Our friends were getting baptized too, so it was a VERY special service.

Today, The Girl has a friend coming over for brunch and then later we will enjoy a simple Easter dinner.

This Week:

This is Spring Break for my kids but The Hub is not able to take time off and The Teen leaves for his choir tour to San Diego on Wednesday so this is not a typical week. There is still one rehearsal for The Teen and three nights of track practice for The Girl to prepare for Saturday’s meet.

Reading:

My reading has been so slow because of the eye problem but I went to the doctor again and there is no permanent damage to the eye. It’s just taking a long time to heal because of all the computer work I’ve had to do for my job.  So I have some new drops and after being off the computer all weekend, the eye feels good. Now, I just have to keep it that way.

Watching:

The Girl and I went to see Cinderella. It was a very sweet movie. I thought the acting was pretty good and the visuals were really lovely.

On the other side of the spectrum, Breaking Bad. I am on the very last episode of season five. It’s killing me.

Making:

This morning we are having bacon and cinnamon rolls and maybe some eggs for me. I love eggs over easy. I don’t have any of that good gluten free bread left though.

Later, I am making an apricot glazed ham, mashed potatoes, green beans with almonds, corn and biscuits.

Grateful for:

This day at home with the family.
