Sunday Matters: Reading Again, and It Feels Good

Sunday Matters

I’ve been catching up on my blog reading and it seems like many of you were reading at a snail’s pace like me. I don’t know what it is about the summer/fall transition that does that to me but it certainly does. Anyway, I’ve picked myself up and dove right into King’s latest. He is always good medicine.

Right Now:

Taking it easy today. I am volunteering later but my plan is to remain on the couch until the last possible second. I just want to watch old episodes of Roseanne, or Seinfeld or possible some animal or travel shows. Mindless stuff.

This Week:

My daughter has a theatre showcase on Tuesday night and the big competition of the same scenes will be on Saturday. It’s an all day event. Very fun. I hope they do well. My daughter is in the musical category. The scene is hush hush so I can’t tell you much about it other than it’s good. It’s at a high school not too far away this year but I am working it so will spend the day there along with The Hub and some of my fave parents. I just love these kids.

Reading:

King, King, King. The Institute, specifically.

Watching:

American Horror Story has been so good this season. The 80s and the plot twists have me dancing a jig.

The Walking Dead started up again with a very interesting opener. Seems promising.

New Things I’ve Tried:

I don’t know if I mentioned it in my last post but I joined Weight Watchers again. It’s not new to me at all. I hit goal twice on it but as some of you know the program seems to change every couple of years which always infuriated me in the past but this year’s program with all these zero point foods has me rethinking it. I’ve already lost ten pounds and it’s been three weeks. ZERO cravings, too.

The part that IS new besides the program, is the fact that I am actually investing in my health. I am a walking nightmare although you probably would not think that if you saw me in real life. At least I hope not.

Grateful for:

Great books. Always grateful for great reads but now that I’m choosing to be part of the blogging community again (hehe), the books are staring me in the face and once again I am excited about reading them.

Do you dress up for Halloween? If so, what will you be? I don’t dress but I like to wear festive things like hats or crowns or special shirts. Sometimes face makeup.

Sunday Matters: His Last Week

Sunday Matters

Thank you for all of the birthday wishes. Yesterday we hit the Arboretum where we roamed around for a bit, and then we had a delicious pizza lunch at a place called The Luggage Room. REALLY tasty pizza and drinks.

Right Now:

At this moment I am just sitting here trying to recover from what wasn’t the best week. It had some good moments so it wasn’t all bad but things at work are challenging right now and at this age (after all I am a year older now) I have no patience for any of it.

This Week:

Ensemble rehearsals start for Annie which means auditions will soon follow. Can anyone take a guess at what my daughter plans to audition for? She is too old for Annie. There’s your hint.

I have a parent meeting to attend and a haircut appointment but that’s really it this week as far as extra stuff.

Oh, except for the fact that my son moves into Cal Poly San Luis Obispo on Saturday! We will all drive up. While my husband helps him load the stuff into his apartment, my daughter and I will get groceries and last minute items for him. He has three roommates but they all have a private bedroom. Classes start in a week.

Reading:

Don’t ask. Slacking in this department but King’s new book comes out on Tuesday!

Watching:

I watched one episode of The Boys. Super dark and a little demented. Not sure I’ll continue. Think The Avengers but mean-spirited perverted Avengers.

American Horror Story comes out on 9/18. I am really excited about it. It’s an 80s theme this time around.

New Things I’ve Tried:

I purchased some Sour Cherry Preserves from the Arboretum and had it on my toast this morning. Pretty darn good.

Grateful for:

Our sweet little pup. She has been so cute lately.

The weather is still warm for us but the summer hasn’t been bad at all. I DO feel like fall is in the air though. What are you looking forward to this fall? I have had about five Pumpkin Cream Cold Brews so far and I must say, I like it so much better than the Pumpkin Spice Lattes.
