Whatnot – 09/07/22


Let’s start off with Luna, the cat my daughter and her roomies share.

I don’t know how I ever worked five days in the office. Two days is quite manageable and dare I say it, pleasant. But my routine is not back to where it was pre-pandemic so blog posting is what’s taking a backseat. That, and reading. Ha! I hope the reading part improves because King’s new book is out now!

Fairy Tale by Stephen King

I celebrated a birthday this past weekend. It still feels weird to celebrate birthdays without the kids here. The Hub and I had a nice dinner at a restaurant I’ve always wanted to go to and it was really good. It was a super hot weekend with weird, weird weather. On Sunday, it hit 111 and then the clouds rolled in and it poured!! Wind, lightning and thunder. My poor pup had to have been terrified. We were in Pasadena visiting a bookstore but when we got home there were tree branches all around and she was very chatty telling us about the danger she was in. She hid under the bed. I could tell by what she took with her when she ducked for cover.

This post is coming to you late because I am in the office today and forgot to pre-schedule it! I don’t have anything going on tonight though so I shall use the time wisely to catch-up on some things. I also have to look for flights because we hope to see my daughter in her show this November. The logistics of that trip will be challenging.

I hope you are all well. I need to stop by blogs to see what’s been going on. Have a great week.

Sunday Matters: Weekends

sunday-matters (1)

We had a scheduled power outage yesterday. They gave us plenty of notice but I had to get up early to get ready for the celebration of life we were attending and then we took off for the coast to enjoy the cooler temps. Cannot be here without AC. Today, up early to prepare for the day. I like the idea of sleeping in but honestly, even if allowed to, I never can. I always wake early.

The first week of classes went well for my daughter and guess what? She now has a cat. A pregnant cat. Luna showed up at their door. She is really not allowed to have a cat so we will see how this plays out. She is very sweet and the roomies have supposedly found a place for the kittens to go when the time comes. The vet says three kittens.

Here is Luna:

Right Now:

Student ministry it happening like always. I am still finding paint on my body after last week’s paint wars. All colors came out easily except for the teal. I was COVERED in teal. I’ve washed my hair dozens of times and there is still teal buried in my scalp. It was so fun though.


Still reading The Last Chairlift. I am about to pick up How High We Go in the Dark.

How High We Go in the Dark


The week has been busy so we are behind on our TV watching. My husband saw Bullet Train in the theater last week when I was busy at the fall kickoff. He recommends it. Said it was very entertaining.

Grateful for:

  • Teeth Whitening Strips. They are an easy way to take a few years off.
  • Spotify playlists. I love the ones that are suggested to me but I’ve been having fun creating my own too.

Have a great Sunday!
