Sunday Matters: Three Day Weekend For Me

Sunday Matters

Three-day weekends are pretty nice. Since I am unable to take a true vacation this year, I’ve been taking days here and there. This past Friday, The Girl, myself and her friend hit the beach. How can you not love a beach day? Especially when it’s on a day you would normally work?

Right Now:

Toast, coffee, church. Just sitting here watching the news before we head out. Sunday morning news is about all I can handle these days. It’s filled with restaurant and movie reviews and nice stories about people helping people.

This Week:

The back-to-school clock is ticking. Registration is the first week of August. Back-to-school shopping will have to be done soon. Maybe I will try to do some of it this week. The rest of the week is pretty much the same old stuff.

Reading:

I finished Do Not Become Alarmed and The Thirst so next up should be:

The Party by Robyn Harding
Lovers & Loners by Jean Ryan
Strange Company by Jean Ryan

Watching:

Fear the Walking Dead is done until September. The mid-season finale made-up for the two previous weak seasons (imo). My husband wants me to watch Better Call Saul. He’s up-to-date with it since he started watching it immediately after finishing Breaking Bad. I, however, chose to take a break. I guess I’ll start watching it.

One show that I fell into again is The Love Boat! It’s so bad, it’s good. I don’t know how I watched it when I was younger but it’s entertaining as hell but probably not for the same reasons I thought so back in the day.

Making:

I fell off the tracking wagon and it took no less than a week to gain five pounds back. This past week I went back to my brown rice / tofu lunches which has helped but man it’s boring. This week I hope to put some protein bowls together.

Grateful for:

It seems cliché for me to say books but the reading this summer has been pretty good. I am also loving the new used bookstore that opened very close to my home.

What do you have planned for today? What are you reading that I need to know about?

Sunday Matters: All Things Summer

Sunday Matters

It’s definitely summer and it’s much warmer than usual for this time of year. I mean, 113 degrees? Sometimes we see that in August. Now? Not ready. Me no like.  However, we make the best of it. Lots of iced tea sipping, barbecuing, and ice cream eating. Shade is a must. A good book to go along with the shade? A definite plus. I love the idea of summer but not the heat! My kids start school in less than four weeks so we are trying to make the most of the time we have.

Right Now:

At this moment, there seems to be a little cloud cover so The Otter Pup just went for a walk. In a little bit we’ll head off to church.

This Week:

The Girl starts volleyball camp. Show rehearsals pick up. Hair appointment. Work.

There was an explosion that affected a major power grid yesterday so the campus was without power along with 140K customers. Power is slowly being restored. I hope it’s fully restored by tomorrow.

Taking Friday off to do something with The Girl. Not sure what.

Reading:

I am reading Do Not Be Alarmed and it is quite the page turner!

Watching:

Fear the Walking Dead is really good now and the mid-season finale is tonight! They must have gotten new writers or something because for THREE seasons that show has been stumbling along.

Making:

Not a thing. It’s too hot to cook. I need to get back into a routine though because my eating has been all over the place.

Grateful for:

Old friends. I may not be able to see them all the time but these days it’s easy to  keep in touch. Grateful for that and them.

What are you doing today? Are you suffering though a heatwave like us? We had to skip the concert at the park yesterday because it was just too hot.
