Sunday Matters: He’s Back and Summer is Ticking Away

Sunday Matters

My son is back from Orlando and he is also another year older! TWENTY years old now.

Right Now:

Getting reading to head out to church and then later this afternoon, my MIL is having a BBQ for my son’s birthday. I am making a pasta salad to bring and maybe another dessert.

This Week:

My week is pretty open. Just work, volunteering and book club. I hope it’s cooler this week. Our weather has been hellish and deadly. I feel my skin shriveling up every time I go outside.

Reading:

I am reading The Immortalists for book club. I am reading other books too but I keep switching them out and I am not really getting anywhere. However, I have added tons of new books to my reading pile. My reading brain has already moved into fall even though summer is not to be ignored.

Watching:

I tried to watch The Greatest Showman at last weekend’s movie night but it was 106 and sunny. I could not see a thing so I must rent it.

As for TV, I haven’t been watching anything.

Making:

I got this Greek bottled marinade the other day and made some grilled chicken. That was the best chicken! So lemony and juicy. I served it with roasted potatoes and green beans which was dumb because I had to use the oven and it was so darn hot.

On another night we had chicken again but with chopped seedless cucumbers, Feta, roasted tomatoes (again, the oven) and some hummus.

Grateful for:

All of us being in the same house again. It went by so fast but it was so weird the entire time. While away, the boy learned how to eat steak the right way (medium rare) and he eats sushi now!

I die.

Sunday Matters: Soon

Sunday Matters

It’s hard to believe but my son comes home this week! His birthday is on Tuesday and it will be his first birthday not spent with us but he returns very soon after and we will celebrate then. He’s not sure what he wants to do but we are all excited.

Right Now:

Church, some lunch and then it’s movie night with the high school ministry in the outdoor amphitheater. It should cool down by then. I hope.

This Week:

Trying to get The Girl motivated to finish her summer school packets so we can spend the weekend doing fun things and not history.

Some big changes happening in the workplace. Yep, again. I am not sure about it right now. My thoughts are all over the place.

Reading:

I am starting The Immortalists this week. It’s for book club and it’s my pick so I hope it’s something we can discuss.

Also finishing up Florida. It’s kind of silly but I wanted to read this book before my son left Florida and I should be able to accomplish this.

Watching:

I am not watching a thing but I am very excited about the trailer for the new Halloween movie. Basically, they are pretending that none of the other sequels happened, which is fine by me because most of them were horrible. Here is the trailer. It’s written by John Carpenter!

Making:

I haven’t made much lately but chopped salad bowls appeal to me right now. I am envisioning chopped, seedless cucumbers, grilled marinated chicken, roasted bell peppers and big cubes of Feta.

Grateful for:

The return of my first-born. Please pray for a safe flight back. I’m sure his emotions will be all over the place. He had such a good time over there and made so many friends. He returns on Thursday.

Here is a question for you. What is the one summer food or drink that you must have or it’s not summer?  For me, it’s roasted corn and watermelon. Oh! And a really good burger. That, there, is a meal my friends.
