Sunday Matters: Sickness Has Hit

Sunday Matters

We said goodbye to the rain, but in came the cold. I like to be cozy so as long as I can cuddle up with a blanket, which I even do at work, I am good. But when I have to attend a meeting in a very cold conference room, I look a little odd carrying my blanket around. So be it. I got hit with a cold this week and I don’t care what I look like with my blanket.

Right Now:

Just sitting here. Still trying to recover from whatever happened to my throat after that allergic reaction and this cold on of it. I feel as if I damaged some vocal cords. Inflammation CAN do that because it happened to me once before so I hope this is not happening again.

In a little bit, we will head off to church. Later, volunteering with the high school ministry. We have a new, earlier start time which means I will be back before 7 p.m. and in plenty of time for The Walking Dead.

This Week:

My daughter has auditions for Grease on Monday & Tuesday. I have to run her to her orthodontist appointment during her audition and then run her back.

My son got a callback for Bright Star. Hopefully I will have news on that later.

My life group meets on Tuesday and we will be having a “Gal-en-tine” celebration. I am making spinach and artichoke dip which I will serve with tortilla chips.

Nothing planned for Valentine’s Day but maybe we will order in.

I was supposed to do Winter camp with my high school group over President’s Day weekend but it was cancelled due to low enrollment. I am keeping my vacation request as is though. Long weekend? Yes, please!

Reading:

Trying to wrap-up An Anonymous Girl. My word for the year should have been SLOW because I am not reading very quickly these days.

Watching:

I haven’t been watching anything but I plan to watch The Walking Dead premiere tonight. I don’t want to give up on the show but it hasn’t been good at all and now that Rick is gone. Well, I just don’t know.

New Things I’ve Tried:

A blogger friend introduced me to Korean skin care videos on YouTube. Seriously, those girls know how to take care of their skin. Anyway, I noticed that most of them used cleansing balms to remove makeup so I picked up a cheap version of one I heard about, Ponds Cleansing Balm. It’s really weird! It is like solid coconut oil but liquefies as soon as it hits your skin. It melts off my makeup very quickly. I don’t wear much but I had my daughter use it for her stage makeup and it worked well.

Grateful for:

Very grateful that my weekend has been quiet. Gotta get over this cold. I cannot stand being all stuffed-up.

That’s all I have. I hope you have a wonderful Sunday.

Sunday Matters: It’s Happening

Sunday Matters

Against my will, my vacation is nearing its end. I return to the office on Tuesday and it’s not going to be pretty. No need to sugarcoat it. The day will be long and arduous and hopefully everyone will leave me alone for a little while.

Right Now:

Just making the most of the days I have left by not doing anything.

This Week:

If I can just get through the week, I should be good. I don’t have anything else scheduled except for a short get-together on Saturday.

Reading:

I’m still pondering what my first book of the year will be. I ordered two good ones but they are taking so long to get here.

Watching:

I’m jumping between Murphy Brown, The Haunting of Hill House, and Tidying Up with Marie Kondo. I am on a cleaning kick that I do not want to end.

New Things I’ve Tried:

I actually got this months ago but haven’t really had the opportunity to use it until my vacation. My MacBook crapped out. As you know, they are pricey. For what I use a laptop for, I didn’t see the point in shelling out a lot of cash right before Christmas so I got an Acer Chromebook. It’s super thin, has a compact 14 inch screen, and gives me three days of battery life when used off and on. Everything I do is web-based or in the Cloud so it just made sense. For less than $250, why the heck not?

My New Chromebook

Grateful for:

These last two days of vacation. So glad I took the extra days.

My question for you today has to do with music. If you could select one song to head into the new year with, what would it be? I learned of this guy from his appearance at the Rose Parade. He used to be homeless but now his unique sound is going viral.

Here’s Lemonade by Alex Boye. Give it a listen. I guarantee you’ll smile.
