Sunday Matters: Long Weekends Are the Best

sunday-matters (1)
I am off on Monday for Memorial Day so this is a long weekend for me and I love it. I spent this past week selecting books for my summer reading list and I think I have it, even though I only selected ten books. I am going to write it up and share it later this week.

How are you? It’s been a rough news week for sure. You can’t help but go through all of the emotions, anger, sadness, frustration, etc. And yet, we’ve seen it so many times. My heart is with those families. This weekend we get to spend time with our loved ones but not everyone can do that so we will just quietly exist and appreciate what we have.

Right Now:

Student ministry is meeting today but I am taking the day off. I’ve got my books lined up on my Kindle and one physical copy to tote around and I just want to be a slug.

Update on my daughter. She had her procedure last Tuesday. It didn’t reveal anything serious but we also didn’t get much of an answer on how to handle her issue going forward. The hospital was ramped up for COVID again so I wasn’t allowed in and the doc did not leave specific notes. We need to talk to him together, I think.

Reading:

My review of A Good Measure posted last Monday. I had some trouble with the giveaway entry form so if you stopped by and wanted to enter for a chance to win a copy, try it again. It should be fixed now.

My current read is Notes on Your Sudden Disappearance by Alison Espach. I read the first page and fell right into the story. I cannot put it down.

Notes on Your Sudden Disappearance

Watching:

We finished Ozark. What a show. I think we may pick up another Korean show but it has to be something that my husband and I can watch together. Still deciding.

Grateful for:

  • That procedure being behind us and nothing serious coming up in the results.
  • This extra day off.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Sunday Matters: The Sophomore Is In The House

My daughter is back. The end of her freshman year brought challenges but she made it through. As soon as she landed we got a good meal into her. The least we can do since she has to begin prep for a procedure very soon. When we got home, she went right into her room to watch a movie and listen to Harry’s House, the new album by Harry Styles. The Otter Pup was thrilled to see her and has been camping out outside her door each morning until she wakes.

Right Now:

Student ministry is meeting today so I will be leaving for that soon. Today, we are celebrating the seniors. What a quick year this has been. After that, we will grab a late lunch and maybe even wrap up Ozark.

Reading:

My current read is French Braid by Anne Tyler.

Watching:

If we are lucky, we will finish Ozark, Season 4 today.

Grateful for:

  • The Girl being home. So happy she can see the doc soon.
  • Being able to take longer walks. I keep pushing myself a bit more each day and I am starting to see more improvements with my knee.

Have a wonderful Sunday and great week!
