Sunday Matters: Sunday Sure Comes Up Fast

Sunday Matters

Why are the weekdays so long and the weekends so short?

This past week was okay but I wasn’t feeling great and our water heater decided to spring a leak which required replacement and I had something going on nearly every night but here I am, none the worse for wear.

Right Now:

Besides the normal stuff that make up my Sunday morning, I’ll be bowling this afternoon! I haven’t bowled in years. Not sure if I will actually be able to participate given my neck pain but we shall see.

This Week:

My daughter starts rehearsals for Shrek on Monday. Auditions for leads are the following week. I know she is wanting to be Teen Fiona but she is also trying to decide on a fairy tale character to go for too. Little Red Riding Hood is a good pick but they seem to want someone younger for that role.

My son’s classes are all ironed out now and he is entering week 2 of the semester. On top of his studies he’s looking for extra work and wants to dabble in community arts by getting involved with the local arts commission. All the talk about defunding the National Endowment for the Arts has him all fired up.

NEA

Also happening this week, Valentine’s Day. I will be at the doctor. It was the only appointment I could snag so I took it. We don’t really go out for it anyway. Too busy and crowded for my taste.

Reading:

Ulysses. (#ulyssesRAL2017)

Quote from Ulysses by James Joyce

I am trying really hard to read other books in between because Ulysses requires many breaks but I’m finding it hard to return to it when I do step away. Part two is such a chunk. I may have to drop everything just to get it read.

Watching:

Not much but tonight I will be watching The Walking Dead. Cue the streamers!!!!

Making:

Dinner better make itself or deliver itself to my house tonight because all I want to think about is The Walking Dead and nothing else.

Grateful for:

People with a good sense of humor. If you’re funny, I love you. That’s all I need to say.

Sunday Matters: Go, Go, Go Joseph

Sunday Matters

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is coming to a close. My husband and I along with some family and friends will be at tonight’s show and I can’t wait. I’m working backstage for this afternoon’s show but I am really looking forward to sitting down and watching it from the audience.  So very proud of my kids. They’ve done so many shows now. Veterans, they are.

Right Now:

My schedule is all thrown off from working backstage and running around so for the moment, I am just focusing on coffee and breakfast.

This Week:

We will be decompressing this week. My daughter is still recovering from the cold she caught during the show. She should be able to rest this week.

Me? I have a life group meeting this week as well as a book club meeting where we’ll be discussing Did You Ever Have a Family.

Reading:

The #ulyssesRAL2017 starts on Wednesday. So far, only two people have joined. BRAVE souls. They haven’t formally signed up so when you see ZERO participants under the sign up link, don’t think I am a liar.

Watching:

My husband finished Breaking Bad. He loved it. I had a hard time not telling him stuff. Now we are trying to catch-up on Bates Motel because the new season is coming soon and it looks so crazy.

Of course, there is The Walking Dead which returns 2/12. I seriously hope it has a pulse because after those deaths that everyone talked about, the pace dropped to an all-time low and was a major snooze fest.

Making:

I’ve been craving soup for months and have yet to make any. Maybe it will happen? Oh, and I forgot about the Super Bowl next Sunday. I guess I need to figure out that menu soon.

Grateful for:

The Arts.

Tell me what you’re up to today. Any outdoor activities planned? Any must-read books?
