Sunday Matters: Three Day Weekend For Me

Sunday Matters

Three-day weekends are pretty nice. Since I am unable to take a true vacation this year, I’ve been taking days here and there. This past Friday, The Girl, myself and her friend hit the beach. How can you not love a beach day? Especially when it’s on a day you would normally work?

Right Now:

Toast, coffee, church. Just sitting here watching the news before we head out. Sunday morning news is about all I can handle these days. It’s filled with restaurant and movie reviews and nice stories about people helping people.

This Week:

The back-to-school clock is ticking. Registration is the first week of August. Back-to-school shopping will have to be done soon. Maybe I will try to do some of it this week. The rest of the week is pretty much the same old stuff.

Reading:

I finished Do Not Become Alarmed and The Thirst so next up should be:

The Party by Robyn Harding
Lovers & Loners by Jean Ryan
Strange Company by Jean Ryan

Watching:

Fear the Walking Dead is done until September. The mid-season finale made-up for the two previous weak seasons (imo). My husband wants me to watch Better Call Saul. He’s up-to-date with it since he started watching it immediately after finishing Breaking Bad. I, however, chose to take a break. I guess I’ll start watching it.

One show that I fell into again is The Love Boat! It’s so bad, it’s good. I don’t know how I watched it when I was younger but it’s entertaining as hell but probably not for the same reasons I thought so back in the day.

Making:

I fell off the tracking wagon and it took no less than a week to gain five pounds back. This past week I went back to my brown rice / tofu lunches which has helped but man it’s boring. This week I hope to put some protein bowls together.

Grateful for:

It seems cliché for me to say books but the reading this summer has been pretty good. I am also loving the new used bookstore that opened very close to my home.

What do you have planned for today? What are you reading that I need to know about?

Sunday Matters: Here We Go

Sunday Matters

It’s official. Production week has started for Shrek. The Girl is very excited because it’s brand new to this theatre company and the costumes are amazing. I have to check the schedule every single day to make sure she is where she needs to be at the right time, but that’s okay.

Right Now:

I am sitting here contemplating whether or not to have a poached egg with my toast. In a bit we will be off to church, volleyball and then home to watch the Tony awards! No student ministry tonight because they are off to camp.

This Week:

Besides production week not much is going on personally. I officially start my summer reading this week and this year I might even read the books on my list.

Reading:

Finishing up The Thirst and then it’s Do Not Be Alarmed and The Gypsy Moth Summer for a book tour.

Watching:

Fear the Walking Dead started. Holy Cheeses that shows sucks. I keep giving it chances but it continues to be horrible. I love three of the characters but really want the mom to get killed off.

Making:

My son invited his girlfriend over to watch the Tony awards so maybe I will do a taco bar.

Slow Cooker Pork Tacos from Skinny Mom

The rest of the week will be up in the air because of production week. Getting The Girl fed and planning for healthy meals is always a challenge. She eats healthy so a quick trip through a drive-thru doesn’t work with her.

Grateful for:

A quiet Sunday evening at home.
