Whatnot – 10/26/22

Chloe smiling.It finally feels like fall!! It was a crisp 48 degrees when I got in the car this morning. It’s been a little windy though which is never good when everything is so dry. The Pup and I have not been able to take our walks due to my knee injuries but they are improving every day so maybe a short walk would be okay this weekend. This is how she looks when she is trying to guilt me into taking her.

Guys, my reading has been going well!!! I need to review My Name is Lucy Barton, One of the Girls, and The IT Girl.  I can hopefully get those written up this week.

Can you believe that Halloween is on Monday? We bought our candy early and if we run out, we run out. The cost of candy is what is was last year, about $18 a bag. We got four which is two less than normal and I think this year will be epic with everything feeling very normal again but whatever we have, will have to be enough or we will shut it all down and eat chili. LOL.

Weekend plans. I think we might have breakfast in Old Town Pasadena and then head to my favorite bookstore on Saturday. If that happens, I need to make a list of books that I want to buy because I always go blank once I enter a bookstore. And, I have been known to buy a book twice. I haven’t read a classic in a really long time. Maybe I’ll pick up a classic.

Our trip to Missouri is coming up in a few weeks. We are excited about that. It’s confusing how they assigned understudies though. My daughter is a lead but she is the understudy for the other lead. I hope we can see her in her actual role. I’m trying to get her to get a booster and flu shot before then but it’s very hard to get adult children to take care of that stuff.

That’s all I have. I hope you are all doing well!

Sunday Matters: Adjusting

sunday-matters (1)

Good morning, friends. I’ve been in the strangest mood. I feel a little scatterbrained and unhinged, if I am being honest. There is nothing going on except me getting used to being back in the office. I just need to get a grip and move on.

Luna the cat had 5 kittens. She is a good little mama. All the kittens are black except for one tabby and he, I think he is a he, is a pistol. Beating up on all the others and stealing the best nursing spots. He is the most vocal too. He has a lot of personality.

Root Beer the cat continues to live well in the Pacific Northwest. She, too, has become quite the character. Both kids tell me these are the only “grandkids” I will ever have. I am Mee-maw to the kitties.

The temps dropped here. The high yesterday was 82 and it was lovely. Cool mornings, golden sunshine, blue skies. It feels like fall. Thank God.

Right Now:

Heading to student ministry in a bit. I am hosting the game today! Right after we meet, we are heading to the beach for baptisms. We have nine students getting baptized. Beach baptisms are always super popular but man, that water is cold.


I am reading Lemon. It’s very good.

Not much. We started the new season of Cobra Kai. It did not start well. Kind of boring.

Grateful for:

  • Cooler weather has put me in a clothes buying mood which never happens. I just purchased a few fall tops. Feels good to be a grown-up again.
  • Follow-up appts. I hate going to the doctor but my follow-up ultrasound for the breast lump is tomorrow. Hope it hasn’t changed and this time, I hope they decide to take it out.

Have a great Sunday!
