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.

Sunday Matters: Almost There

Sunday Matters

I can’t even believe that Christmas Day is this week. This year the week just hit me in the face. We’ve had a hard time scheduling things and can’t even figure out which day we are attending the Christmas service. Every, single, day, presents a challenge in some way. It’s not all bad though. We’ve met a lot of new people this year and with new friends, comes new things you want to participate in. A good problem to have?

Right Now:

High School ministry is on break and our church has a Christmas service this morning but I think we are going to try to hit Monday’s service so we can be together but it may not work out.

I need to figure out what I am making Christmas day. I nixed the idea of going out. We do make Christmas dinner reservations most years but it’s been crowded and the food hasn’t been great so I want to make something myself this year. I will spend some time figuring that out today.

This Week:

Monday – possibly attend the Christmas service.

Tuesday – Spending Christmas Eve with the in-laws. We are having brunch this year. Then, my daughter has a singing gig at another church at 8pm and 11pm.

Wednesday – Christmas at home, then probably Star Wars.

Thursday or Friday – Disneyland!


I just finished Promises of the Heart by Nan Rossiter.  I’ve read every book she’s written. This one is a little different. No beachy setting but it really spoke to my heart. Review coming very soon.

Guys, it’s impossible for me to believe but at the beginning of the year I signed up to read the Bible in a year and I finished early! What an accomplishment.

First book. I have no idea what my first book of the year will be but I am looking forward to picking it out!


ALL the Christmas movies I can watch. Plus I recorded the All in the Family and Good Times (Live) event as well as the I Love Lucy Christmas Special. I plan to watch them this week.

I Love Lucy Christmas Special

New Things I’ve Tried:

I ordered some fancy tabs for my Bible on Etsy. I haven’t put them on yet but when I do, if they work out for me I’ll share the link in case anyone wants to get some. This lady makes tabs for planners too.

Grateful for:

With all the changes at work, (VP retiring, Interim VP named, permanent VP position posted, others retiring, me being moved to a different group, this downtime can’t come soon enough. I need a factory reset and I am glad to have time on the books for me to do just that.

How is your week looking? More shopping? I have a few items I need to get but honestly, I’m done for the most part. Trimming it all down this year.
