Sunday Matters: Off to Camp!

sunday-matters (1)
Well, not quite. I leave with the high schoolers tomorrow for a week. We are going to CIY (Christ in Youth) camp at Biola University. It’s not Hume Lake like in the past but I am excited for a new experience. And I am excited to not be trudging up and down a hill every time I need to go to the cabin. The knee is holding its own but that would for sure do it in. Wish me luck, pray, you know the drill.

They finished the CSI Vegas shoot across the street but on the final day, it looks like the neighboring house caught on fire. So now they are rectifying that issue and then we get to look forward to street resurfacing which is badly needed.

Right Now:

I am headed to student ministry. Even though it is Father’s Day, we are still meeting. We celebrated Father’s Day yesterday, after our dental appointments. LOL. You don’t realize how fast six months fly by until your cleaning appointment comes up again and because we have to get The Girl’s health stuff taken care of while here, all three of us had appointments. Long morning.

Later, maybe a nap and some lazy TV watching.


I should be able to finish It All Comes Down To This by Therese Anne Fowler today or tomorrow. Not sure what’s next.

It All Comes Down to This


We started a Korean show called Hellbound. It’s interesting. An angel of death tells you when you will die, down to the minute and then these “executors” in the form of monstrous creatures are sent to take you out. Most of these people have committed serious crimes but it’s hinting at the idea that not all of them are what you and I would consider serious crimes. Are their various levels of sin? Again, interesting.

Grateful for:

  • Appetizers. I hosted book club this past Wednesday and it’s reminded me that sometimes appetizers make the perfect meal. Paired with a good bottle of wine? Even better.
  • My nightly good night call from Root Beer the cat. My son video calls me and it’s always Root Beer on the screen. Darn, I miss that cat.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Whatnot – 06/15/22

The Otter Pup in the sun.Our little pup should have been named “Sunny” because she loves the sun so much. She could never survive in a cold climate. She searches the house all day for the perfect sunny spot and usually finds it. This is her in the loft. She is slightly miffed because my daughter moved her keyboard there and now her pillow is not in the right position. I will fix this situation immediately. 

How are you? What summer plans do you have? Any plans for Father’s Day? With California’s inflation and gas prices, we find ourselves spending more time at home and I am fine with it. No big summer plans except that I head to summer camp with the high schoolers next week. I am volunteering on Sunday so we hope to do something for Father’s Day this Saturday but guess what? All three of us have dental appointments. We will do something after those morning appointments.

As for reading, I finished The Swimmers. The review posts this Friday. It was very good and packed a punch for such a slim novel. We are discussing it tonight for book club.

I am currently reading It All Comes Down to This and it’s very good as well. Not sure what I will pick up next. I’ve been on a roll and I don’t want to jinx it.

Oh, if you missed my summer list, check it out here!

Have a great week and tell me what you are reading!
