Sunday Matters: Reading Frenzy

Sunday Matters

I’m not big on reading goals but last year’s modest goal was missed by half. FAIL! This year, I am just working my way through all my review copies and so far, so good. I am about to begin book four of the year. I am also sprinkling in buzzy reads to keep my interest up.

Right Now:

My first week back was pretty good. By the end of the week I was grumpy and my body hurt from sitting all day long. It’s like my body forgot how to do that. But a lot of people were out so I was able to return without a fuss. Nice and quiet. That said, this mama is tired this morning. I am volunteering in a bit but the rest of the day is mine.

Also, my daughter had her first behind-the-wheel driving lesson this morning!

This Week:

Ladies and gents, we have hit production week #1 for Annie. Each show, we get better at handling it. This time, because of my daughter’s role, she needs to be at the theatre so early that it conflicts with school. This presents a problem for the obvious reason but also because she still isn’t driving on her own. We will get through it. The managing of meals, transportation and the like need to be handled day by day or it’s too overwhelming for her and I to figure out.


I am about to pick book #5 of the year. It will probably be this one, The Other Mrs. Miller by Allison Dickson.

The Other Mrs. Miller


I haven’t been able to watch anything.

New Things I’ve Tried:

I am not big into makeup but the one thing I must have is mascara and I don’t like to pay a lot of money for it. The last brand I had, Lash Paradise made my lashes so clumpy. The wand was totally lame and did nothing to separate,  just added huge clumps to my lashes.

So, the other day in desperation I picked up a cheap, Cover Girl brand (Clump Crusher) and so far, it’s pretty darn good. I love the wand. No raccoon eyes.

Grateful for:

Bright blue skies.
Crisp mornings.
Page-turning reads.

How is your weekend going?

First Book 2020

It took me forever to decide on my first book of the year. I have so many books that I want to read, and if you are like me, you believe that it sets the tone for the rest of the year.

Sheila is hosting the event again and this time I wanted to join in. So, here it is:

A Good Neighborhood by Therese Anne Fowler.

What will you be reading?
