Sunday Matters: Summer Reading is Almost Here

Sunday Matters

This is the time of year where every student is hanging by a thread. They are tired, stressed and just over all of it but we aren’t quite done yet. We still have events to deal with like Senior Showcases and banquets for both choir and theatre and that last-minute push to get work turned in. Please give us strength.

Right Now:

Church this morning and then dinner prep later. I hope to sneak a few pages of reading in but also have high school ministry later so it won’t be much.

This Week:

  • Rehearsals for Little Shop begin this week.
  • Senior Showcase for theatre is this week. My daughter is not a senior but was asked to be in a senior directed piece for A Chorus Line.
  • My 25th wedding anniversary is this week.
  • Registration for summer classes is this week so the girl can get ahead for next year.

Reading:

At the moment I am reading The Invited by Jennifer McMahon. It’s pretty good. Grabbed me right away. It’s being dubbed a “ghost story with a twist” but I am liking the slow build.

Watching:

Not much. I really want to catch-up on movies that I should have seen prior to Endgame like, Black Panther and Thor Ragnarok. Not to mention Captain Marvel. But I saw a clip for Wine Country on Netflix and that looked interesting too.  I am so over Maya Rudolph but it still looks good.

New Things I’ve Tried:

I haven’t tried a darn thing but for some reason I am really into the smell of rosemary right now so I am searching for a good rosemary hand cream. I have rosemary all over my yard but the rosemary at the community garden here on campus has the most divine rosemary. I sweep my hands through the plants on the way out and it is like heaven.

Grateful for:

The whole concept of summer reading. I hardly ever stick to my list but the idea of it makes me so happy. I will be compiling a stack for that soon.

Name one book that will be on your summer reading list?

Sunday Matters: That’s a Wrap

Sunday Matters

This week was not great and I’m glad it’s over. Health stuff. Stress. Seriously, I could do without it.

Right Now:

One of the things I am giving up while I figure out this health stuff is coffee. I never drank a lot of it but it’s something I’ve always enjoyed. Tea, just doesn’t do it for me but that’s what I am having at the moment.

This Week:

It is production week for Footloose with shows Thursday through Saturday.  I will probably see the show more than once but I’m not sure yet which shows we’ll see. I like to do opening and closing if possible.

Sunday is Mother’s Day. My son got us tickets to see Falsettos so I am looking forward to that.

Reading:

I just finished The Wife Between Us and it was a wild ride.  I really enjoyed it and hope to get the review up soon. If you  know of other books like it, let me know.

I am reading Letters to the Church for a discussion  I have on the 14th and White Tears for a discussion I have on the 16th.

Watching:

I have not been watching anything on TV but I did finally get to see Endgame! Avoiding all of the spoilers was so hard. I try to see these type of movies as soon as I can but our schedules just didn’t allow for it. Since others may not have seen it yet, please do not post any spoilers in comments. 

New Things I’ve Tried:

I haven’t tried anything new in the way of products but I need something for my skin. Maybe it’s because I’ve not been well but my skin is showing signs of toxicity and congestion. I just feel polluted. I need a new face mask or juice cleanse or something. Any recommendations?

Grateful for:

These days I am just grateful to get through the day.

How are you doing? The end of the school  year is coming and with it comes all of the end-of-the-year stress. Honestly, it’s killing me and there won’t be much of a break over summer either.
