Why? You might ask. Well, because after bragging about my advanced review copy of Irving’s new book, The Last Chairlift, which comes out in October, I plopped myself down with it and noticed it was only two chapters! It’s nearly 1000 pages so I immediately had to rant to Diane about it. Her digital copy was complete so she talked me down from the ledge and had me download it again. I did so FIVE times and finally got a full copy. Phew! It sounds dramatic but you know how it is with highly anticipated books. I went through ALL the emotions.
Guess what! It’s my son’s 24th birthday today! Many of you have known him since he was The Boy. Time flies! I’m sure this is how he is spending it. He just recovered from COVID. He avoided it all this time but this new variant is a beast. Mild symptoms. Three days positive but now well for the baseball game he plans to attend today. Root Beer was a good little nurse.
Same old routine today. Student ministry until about 1pm and then whatever. I haven’t cooked anything in a long time. Maybe I will make a pot of something. Ha. It’s still warm here but comfort foods sound good to me.
Happily reading The Last Chairlift, which is good so far. I realize that picking up a chunkster that was not on my summer reading list will slow down my reading progress overall but you can’t ignore an Irving book when you’ve been graced with a review copy.
We are still watching the Korean zombie show, Sweet Home. We have one more episode in Season 1 to watch. I heard that they are working on another season so it will be interesting to see where the story goes. Out of ten episodes only the last three moved the plot along but now it’s really interesting.
I really want to see the movie Nope. I’ve shared how movie theater experiences usually leave me wanting. People on their cell phones, talkers, etc. They all drive me crazy. We may wait for the hype to die down a bit. A little bit of trivia. The town this movie is set in is supposed to be my town, Santa Clarita.
- Good friends. It’s been a little hard to schedule things these days. Everyone’s calendars are back to being booked up but we still try.
- My husband was gifted this men’s sunblock that is a clear gel and meant for balding men. LOL. He immediately got rid of it and so I snatched it for myself. It’s made by Cremo and it’s great on my face! Not greasy. No smell. No shine.
Have a great Sunday! Enjoy every minute. Read something good, make something good, rest.
