Sunday Matters: Where Do I Start?

Sunday Matters

Hello, March. Funny how you crept up on me.

The weekend has been good. Yesterday, I had breakfast with a friend I haven’t seen for 34 years!! Unbelievable! It was so good to see her again . We talked as if no time had passed.

Today, I come to you worn out and tired. My iron levels are rock bottom again and I have little energy for anything. I am just wiped out but it’s not really something I can control even with rest. I don’t absorb iron so I will have to talk to the doc again about it.

Right Now:

Hey, I’m awake and upright. I call that a win.

This Week:

The final cast list for Oliver posts on Tuesday. We have a volleyball tournament on Saturday to go to and in between those two all the normal stuff I am involved in.

However, no matter how busy I am,  I will make an effort to be a little more cautious about my food choices this week. Ever since we returned to the house I have been eating pseudo meals. On their own, they are healthy but piled on top of one another we are talking major calories and a lot of sugar. Protein bars and yogurt, trail mix, lots of toast with avocado. Too much. I am so over it and coupled with the low iron I feel like sludge.

Reading:

I started Future Home of the Living God. Not sure how I feel about it yet. It’s starting off very slow for me.

Watching:

I am not able to watch the Oscars tonight because I will be with the high school ministry. I may be able to watch some of the red carpet action beforehand but hopefully I’ll make it back in time for The Walking Dead. I’ll record it but if I am too late coming back I can’t stay up to watch the entire show. I wake up way too early.

Oh! I saw a trailer for this movie and I am dying. What a cast! I need to see it.

Making:

I should just take this category out. No time to cook.

Grateful for:

My tax lady. It’s a funny thing to say but she makes our life so easy by taking care of it all for us and now she does my son’s too so we are super grateful to have her.

Do you watch the Oscars? I miss the old, Hollywood glamour. It’s just not like it used to be.

R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril (#RIP XII)

RIPXII

Every September 1 through October 31 for the last 11 years Carl from Stainless Steel Droppings has hosted the R.eaders I.mbibing P.eril Challenge, affectionately known as the R.I.P. Challenge. Carl has been kind enough to entrust the event to Heather and Andi, from now on, and they hope to do him proud.

The purpose of the R.I.P. Challenge is to enjoy books or movies that could be classified as:

Mystery

Suspense
Thriller
Dark Fantasy
Gothic
Horror
Supernatural

There are many different levels of participation so even if you only read one book or see one movie, you can consider yourself a participant.

I plan to do Peril the Second (2 books) and Peril on the Screen (movies or TV shows).  I hope to read more than two books but I’d like to come out of it feeling accomplished so I will stick with this level.
