Sunday Matters: Showtime (Almost)

Sunday Matters

Last night we celebrated my son’s 21st birthday with dinner out. It was a great meal and nostalgic for me because it’s a restaurant that I used to go to when I was in in my teens. This is a photo of him along with his sister.

My son and daughter.

This is production week for Little Shop of Horrors. You all know how involved my family is in theatre so you’ve rolled through all of it with me. It can be a very busy time but summer shows are so much easier and fun. Once again I am working backstage too. I am looking forward to it.

Right Now:

REST. I didn’t mention it but my daughter has been suffering from a massive headache for days now. Urgent Care diagnosed her with a sinus infection. Very hard to sing throughout an entire show, dance and not die from the pain. Hopefully, we caught it in time. If you are the praying type, please pray that she heals before showtime this Friday. Good thoughts are much appreciated as well.

Later today the high school ministry group is having a BBQ. I hope some of the girls from my group can go as it looks like fun.

This Week:

Production week. Enough said.

Reading:

I reviewed two books this week, The Summer Demands and The Scent Keeper.  I finished The Friends We Keep and hope to have that review up soon.

Next up? Never Have I Ever. I cannot wait to jump into this one!

Watching:

I’ve been watching a lot of Lakefront Bargain Hunt. Also, Hoarders although I have seen almost every episode now. Fear the Walking Dead has not been horrible but it hasn’t been great either. I suppose I will see it through.

My church has been having an “At The Movies” series where they show clips from a movie and then teach around it. This week the movie was Instant Family. I was in tears. Now I have to see the entire movie.

Last night, we saw Once Upon a Time in… Hollywood. I was dreading one particular scene but it was shot in a completely different way. Refreshing. I really loved the movie.

New Things I’ve Tried:

I did a dumb thing the other day. We went out for lunch and I was served the most delicate, delicious looking egg roll. Many of you know that I have Celiac. Well, I took a bite. Let me tell you, it really was the most delicious thing but all this week my skin has been a mess and I know it’s from that. I couldn’t help it. I was weak and the last time I had an egg roll was ten years ago.

Grateful for:

Plants. I kill things. Easily. But at work I’ve been taking samples off of some of the plants in the community garden. Samples, cuttings? Anyway, I’ve been successful with them taking at work and it’s really made my work space quite pleasant. Do you have a green thumb?

In honor of the BBQ I will be attending today, where we will be enjoying burgers and hot dogs, what is your favorite thing to grill?

Sunday Matters: Spring Has Sprung

Sunday Matters

I’ve been trying to catch-up on sleep ever since last week’s theatre festival. It was fun but man, I am exhausted. That, coupled with a few nights of insomnia really did me in.

My daughter got her wisdom teeth out on Friday so although the day was spent making her comfortable, it was still a day off from work. Tried to make the most of it by tidying up while she rested and got some reading in here and there.

Spring is all around and I love it. Cool mornings and evenings but warmish days. The flowers are blooming. This is perfect weather in my book.

Right Now:

Coffee.

This Week:

This week should be better. It’s spring break for my daughter so at least there isn’t any stress over homework getting done, etc. I’m at work all this week but have Monday off as a holiday.

Reading:

Everyone seems to be reading Daisy Jones & The Six so I shall join them.

Daisy Jones & The Six

I forgot to bring Daisy with me to work the other day so I started this book as well, Tomorrow There Will Be Sun.  I see mixed reviews for it but I cannot put it down.

Tomorrow There Will Be Sun

Watching:

The Walking Dead was crazy last week! Something pretty shocking happened. Tonight is the season finale. I hope it’s just as shocking but these producers love to leave us hanging.

New Things I’ve Tried:

I tried Maca root powder this week. I have been adding it to my coffee. I was told it would help balance out hormones but when I Google it I see that it also helps with energy as it contains quite a bit of iron. I am low on iron again which explains my wiped out state. It’s a little bitter though. Not bad when blended into coffee but just stirred in makes a lumpy mess.

Grateful for:

Good movies. A lot of movies are coming out soon that I want to see. Us, is already out and I can’t wait to see it.

If you could pull one book out of your pile to read right now, what would it be?
