Sunday Matters: House Stuff

Sunday Matters

When I find myself with a little time, I typically use it to work on some aspect of the house. With two of us working full-time and so much of our time spent driving my daughter all over town, the house gets neglected. I sometimes wonder if this only happens to me. I have no trouble doing the laundry because that can be done in-between things but the little piles of junk that magically appear really drive me nuts. So, the rest of this month is going to be dedicated to taking care of that and getting things in order.

Right Now:

We are just making the most of our time off and soaking up this last day before we head back to work tomorrow. No big plans. Just rest.

This Week:

Since I took a few days off last week, I imagine my work week will be full. Maybe not. I don’t have anything else going on this week. Just running my daughter to rehearsal for Little Shop and really, that’s about it.

Reading:

I really need to finish my current book so I can begin my next book, I’ll Be Gone in the Dark.

Watching:

Stranger Things! I am not all the way through the season yet so no spoilers but finally there is something good to watch.

Fear the Walking Dead. It’s not great but I guess I am a loyal viewer because I keep watching.

New Things I’ve Tried:

At my local grocery store they were selling these pineapple chicken sausages and I used them to make a stir fry and just served it with rice. Super easy and delicious. What I really liked is that each sausage came in its own perforated package which made it easy to take just a couple out. I don’t know if you have them near you but they were great.

Grateful for:

Extra days off. Just a couple of extra days and I feel so refreshed.

What’s your plan for the week?

Sunday Matters: Nearing the Finish Line

Sunday Matters

I know that “I” am not the one taking summer school classes but every day I am reminded that these classes are in progress and it just doesn’t feel like summer at all right now. THREE more days for one class. A few more weeks for the other and fall registration is August 2nd so there will just be a couple of weeks to decompress.

Right Now:

We attended church on Thursday so maybe a trip to the bookstore is in order and then a trip to find some cool wine glasses.

This Week:

I decided to sandwich my July 4th holiday with a day off before, and a day off after, therefore making my one day off a glorious five days off. I want to do all the things. We don’t head anywhere for fireworks because of our pup. She is fine with them as long as we are home but my daughter is going to the beach with a friend. Not sure what my son is doing. We will just hang here and cook something good.

For those other days, I plan to use at least one of them to declutter my house. I know! I am a freak but this calms me and I can’t relax when my house is in a disarray. For the other days, no big plans but I just want to get out and do things.

Reading:

Earlier this week I posted my plans for summer reading. If I read those books this summer I will be happy. Plus, I am reading The Scent Keeper right now. It’s slow-going but not because of the book. Just a little sidetracked with home stuff and yes, that school stuff and keeping my daughter on track.

Watching:

What will you be watching on July 4th? Movies? I will for sure be watching Stranger Things! I am so excited to finally have some good TV to sink my teeth into.

Unfortunately, the Bachelorette was on the other day and I made the mistake of watching an episode. I’m not hooked, and will not watch again but that one episode was like a crazy train.

Fear the Walking Dead is a snooze fest.

New Things I’ve Tried:

I’ve never used facial moisturizers religiously because of naturally oily skin but the elasticity of my skin is just not there anymore. I’ve been trying new things here and there and this moisturizer is one of them. Weleda’s Skin Food has quite a following. Go ahead. Google it.

It has made my skin so dewy. Plus, it smells fresh like herbs and yes, maybe it’s a smidge medicinal but let me tell you, a tiny dab makes my skin feel so good and my hands… like new. Can be used all over. Have you heard of it?

Grateful for:

I had a dental appointment yesterday and I am grateful for the clean bill of health. I’ve been spending more time on my teeth and it’s a good thing.

What are you up to today? What summery thing will you be doing this week? Concerts in the Park opens on Saturday with a Spice Girls tribute band but we are going to a BBQ at my in-law’s house.
