Sunday Matters: All I Want To Do

Sunday Matters

What an exhausting week! I must be horribly out of shape (I know I am) because my entire body hurts. We had to pack and unpack the house for termite treatment. What a bore. I have bruises all over. Nothing a decent nap can’t fix though.

All I want to do:

  • Nap
  • Watch Black Mirror all day long.
  • Read. I think it may be time for new glasses though.
  • Eat snacky things like nachos.

Right Now:

I’m just trying to get moving with some coffee and a little motivation. I would like a machine to be invented that just takes me from my bed, to the shower and then delivers me back all ready to go. Why can’t this exist?

This Week:

Oliver auditions are this week which means my house is filled with song. I’ve got nothing else going on. Well, I have to make an acupuncture appointment for my neck. Has anyone ever tried acupuncture before? Did it work?

Reading:

I finished Best Day Ever. The review posts this week.  What a crazy book. I am now reading Strange Weather by Joe Hill. I started it a long time ago but I am just getting back to it now. It’s so good.

Patty told me that Robyn Harding has a new book coming out. I managed to snag a review copy. It’s called Her Pretty Face. You may remember her last book, The Party which I reviewed here.

Her Pretty Face

Watching:

I’ve been watching the Olympics every chance I get. It’s easy to have on in the background and I love all of the stories.

Making:

Our termite tenting experience has ended which means we have no food in the house. We didn’t want to bag a ton of food so we used all that we could and tried not to buy anything. I kind of like how clean my fridge and pantry are but you know… the kid. She has to eat.

Spaghetti and meatballs sound really good but she’s not eating meat now and doesn’t get too excited about plain spaghetti.

Grateful for:

The great weather we’ve been having. We had a little rain but it’s been so cool and crisp. I wish it could stay like this.

On another note, the events of this week have been brutal. This country is so divided, we can’t even come together for the sake of these kids. One comment on social media gave me chills. It referenced 2018 as the year for live streamed mass shootings and for students who have survived mass shootings to live Tweet support to the students currently sheltering in place. Apparently, this happened.

No words.

Sunday Matters: My Routine is Totally Off

Sunday Matters

These days it doesn’t take much to throw me off my game. Without boring you to death with details, let’s just say that it’s been a challenging week and leave it at that. I am ready to start the week anew.

Right Now:

It’s a tournament weekend so no time for church today.

This Week:

My focus this week is organization. Everything needs to be looked at (closets, drawers, the garage, etc.) The weather has been warm so naturally my spring cleaning has kicked in. I want to do some painting too but in reality, maybe I will actually select the paint this week. I doubt I will actually paint anything.

Not much else going on except Oliver rehearsals begin this Monday. She is going for Bet and Mrs. Sowerberry. It’s kind of a dark show and I think it’s her third time doing it but she loves the music.

Reading:

I finished Nomadland. My thoughts on that later this week. I just started Start Without Me by Joshua Max Feldman and I picked up Best Day Ever based on everyone’s recommendations.

Watching:

I’ve been watching Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. It’s not new to me, but I haven’t watched in a long time and I have been in the mood for it lately.

Making:

Not a thing. Too much going on. No nights in. No point to cooking.

Grateful for:

New beginnings. I have no problem saying goodbye to a busy week so I am grateful that tomorrow starts a brand new week.

What’s new with you? I’ve been looking at book subscription services where you get a bookish box every now and then. I think I would like the break in routine but I just know I will end up with books I already have.
