Sunday Matters: Still Plugging Along

Sunday Matters

Hello! As you can tell from my posting schedule I am still out of sorts health wise. I considered a total break from the blog but it’s the end of the year and you know, there’s still a reading goal to make and some reviews to write. So here I am just doing my best and that’s okay. Just know that my posting may be erratic and depending on the day, may contain a lot of chatter.

Right Now:

I am heading out for my volunteer gig which will keep me busy until 1pm or so. Then, a nap on the couch and an early dinner, whatever that may be.

This Week:

I have my knee MRI this Tuesday.

On Wednesday my book club is meeting for dinner and a book exchange. We normally meet at someone’s home but we are meeting at a restaurant this year. Should be fun.


Not a thing. All this medication I am on makes me queasy and gives me a massive headache. I said this exact thing last week and it still applies this week but perhaps I am turning a corner because reading sounds appealing to me now. I will review my review copies and library holds and see if anything jumps out at me.


Not much. Lining up the Christmas “must-see” movies so we can get to them before Christmas.

Grateful for:

  • It’s kind of silly but I was really getting into Bible journaling before COVID but I left all my fun pens at work. Well, I just bought new ones so I can journal again from home. I am grateful for all the fun ways to journal these days.
  • Root Beer, the cat. This is the feral cat that my son adopted in Kansas. She has provided hours of entertainment and companionship for my son in that small, dusty little town of 1200 people.

Have a wonderful Sunday and great week!

Whatnot – 11/17/21

Root Beer the cat. It occurred to me that I have not introduced you to my son’s cat. This is a cat that he befriended in the small Kansas town he lives in. Her name is Root Beer. She was completely feral and not giving him the time of day but now she comes inside for visits when the temps drop below 30 degrees. She also has a shelter that my son built out of an Igloo cooler but she prefers to step inside the house for a visit and some time with her catnip toys. Isn’t she sweet? She comes to the slider and waits for him to notice her. She is partially deaf so her meows are interesting. He is low on funds with the car situation being such an ongoing pain but soon he will get her spayed and vaxxed.

I have been feeling a little antsy again. Not anxious really but antsy like I have a lot to do when I really do not. Today I will decide on our Empty Nest Thanksgiving meal. My husband suggested we go to the local Chinese restaurant, which is really good and open that day but Chinese food on Thanksgiving? Nope. I will still cook, something.

Also, I got a message from Delta. My daughter’s return flight has already changed due to scheduling issues on their end. Please pray that this change and potentially others do not impact her in a huge way. It’s ridiculous that they have her flying to Atlanta first which is the opposite direction but I know, it’s their hub so blah blah.

Tonight my book club meets to discuss This Tender Land. I really enjoyed this one. It should be a good discussion. It will be good to get out too. I am tired of staring at these walls.

Hey, I got my booster! 24-hours later I was a bit out of it but then the very next day I was fine. For the sake of transparency, I suggest scheduling yours for when you don’t have much going on. That way you can just take care of yourself and not have to power through it. I was sore all over and had a low grade fever. Not bad but didn’t want to do much.

Some of us in student ministry are having a Friendsgiving! It’s this Sunday evening. I am making a tray of gluten-free caramelized onion cornbread stuffing to take along. It’s a Tyler Florence recipe which I will also make vegetarian. It’s yummy!

Have a great rest of the week!
