Sunday Matters: A Little Rest

Sunday Matters

This will be brief because with the long weekend and all, I am going to take a break and do nothing. Plus, I tacked on a few extra days to celebrate my birthday! It’s a milestone birthday for me and I am all over the place with how I feel about it. It’s not until Wednesday but it’s looming.

Right Now:

I plan to eat a huge breakfast, drink tons of coffee and read.

This Week:

Back to school night is this week. It’s high school and many parents don’t go  but The Girl’s choir performs and I like to meet the teachers to get a sense for what will be expected throughout the year. Personality tells you a lot.

There is also one volleyball game and book club and I still haven’t read the book.

Reading:

I guess I will be reading my book club book. Exit West.

Watching:

When I have time to watch TV I usually tune in to home improvement shows like Fixer Upper. I also like shows about purchasing beach front properties. Cooking shows are a comfort to me but are there any good ones anymore?

Making:

Don’t plan to make a thing. However, somewhere in the plan there needs to be a really good burger.

Grateful for:

Long weekends and extra days off.

What do you have planned for today or tomorrow, if you are lucky enough to have it off?

Sunday Matters: Long Weekend

Sunday Matters

I love holiday weekends even when I don’t have anything special planned. Just the idea of having an extra day to do ANYTHING appeals to me.

Right Now:

We went to church on Thursday so we could sleep in today. Yesterday we were at a volleyball tournament and had to leave pretty early in the morning so my plan at the moment is to be a total slug.

This Week:

Tuesday, my life group is going out to dinner to celebrate a graduation. Japanese food, here we come!

In other news, school ends on Thursday for us. Unbelievable, really. There was a theatre showcase to attend but it’s been rescheduled so many times and now I think it’s been cancelled for good.

Volleyball camp starts on June 4 so there won’t be any downtime to speak of.  I gotta figure out the online summer school program too. Still waiting for info from the school counselor about that. With all the electives and sports,  history will be taken over the summer.

Reading:

I finished and reviewed The Female Persuasion and liked it very much. Right after finishing it, I started The Other Mother and let me tell you, it is impossible to put down. I started it and before I knew it I was 150 pages in. Now, I am done with it! The review will post this week.

On a very sad note, my pre-order for King’s new book, The Outsider never came and it’s a holiday weekend, the perfect time to read it so I may have to walk into a store to buy it and then deal with the return/refund of the other copy later.

Watching:

Not really anything new. But I feel like watching some old movies this weekend or a really good action movie. I still haven’t seen Black Panther.

Making:

Memorial Day begs for something to be grilled but what? With me being gluten-free and The Girl being a vegetarian, meals are somewhat complicated. The other day I used a veggie crumble as a meat substitute in a casserole and after eating it had a terrible reaction to it. It was ALL gluten! I had no idea.

What are you making? Kabobs sound pretty good.

Grateful for:

The extra day off, of course!
