Sunday Matters: A Little Foggy but Happy

Sunday Matters

Last week was pretty good. I did a little reading, some journaling and made a few home cooked meals. It felt good to just BE. I’m the type that flits around when I don’t have something to do but I didn’t do that this past week and it felt great.

Right Now:

No amount of coffee can help the fog I’m in but I shall drink it anyway. Muscle relaxers, pain relievers and allergy meds do not mix but I am being told to take them together and although I space them out, they space ME out. You could ask me to do anything right now and I’d happily say yes to it. As soon as I resemble a functioning human being, I will venture out into the world and begin my day.

This Week:

Hopefully there will be a callback for my daughter this week. My son is auditioning for a Justice League character on Tuesday. I’ve got a couple of appointments but nothing big. Should be a good week.

Reading:

Ulysses. I will be reading it for a long, long time. However, I did decide to read other books with it so right now I am finishing up A Man Called Ove and then I have to take a look at my review copy list to see what’s next.

Murakami released his newest book in Japan. It’s called “Kishidancho Goroshi” (Killing Commendatore) and it’s a big one. It seems VERY unfair that I have to wait for the translation to hit the US but I shall wait. I have no choice! In Japan it’s in two volumes so I hope when it comes to the US it will be one, massive book. I cannot wait! If anyone knows when it will hit the US, please let me know.

Watching:

Bates Motel started up again and it’s good.

Everyone knows I am watching The Walking Dead so that’s not news but the spiked walker from last week was very cool.

I really want to see Arrival.

Yes, I will watch the Oscars once I get home but if it runs into The Walking Dead I’ll have to change the channel.

Making:

My son asked for salad. SALAD. So, I’ve gotta make salad.

I’m not in the mood for much these days. All those meds kill my appetite but veggie or burrito bowls sound good. Maybe I will make some for the week.

Grateful for:

Opportunities. I get a little nervous when someone presents me with an opportunity to do something good that might be a little out of my comfort zone but lately, I’ve just been saying yes and it feels pretty good.

Maybe it’s the meds!

What are you up to? What unputdownable book are you reading? I know it’s not Ulysses.

Sunday Matters: Sunday Sure Comes Up Fast

Sunday Matters

Why are the weekdays so long and the weekends so short?

This past week was okay but I wasn’t feeling great and our water heater decided to spring a leak which required replacement and I had something going on nearly every night but here I am, none the worse for wear.

Right Now:

Besides the normal stuff that make up my Sunday morning, I’ll be bowling this afternoon! I haven’t bowled in years. Not sure if I will actually be able to participate given my neck pain but we shall see.

This Week:

My daughter starts rehearsals for Shrek on Monday. Auditions for leads are the following week. I know she is wanting to be Teen Fiona but she is also trying to decide on a fairy tale character to go for too. Little Red Riding Hood is a good pick but they seem to want someone younger for that role.

My son’s classes are all ironed out now and he is entering week 2 of the semester. On top of his studies he’s looking for extra work and wants to dabble in community arts by getting involved with the local arts commission. All the talk about defunding the National Endowment for the Arts has him all fired up.

NEA

Also happening this week, Valentine’s Day. I will be at the doctor. It was the only appointment I could snag so I took it. We don’t really go out for it anyway. Too busy and crowded for my taste.

Reading:

Ulysses. (#ulyssesRAL2017)

Quote from Ulysses by James Joyce

I am trying really hard to read other books in between because Ulysses requires many breaks but I’m finding it hard to return to it when I do step away. Part two is such a chunk. I may have to drop everything just to get it read.

Watching:

Not much but tonight I will be watching The Walking Dead. Cue the streamers!!!!

Making:

Dinner better make itself or deliver itself to my house tonight because all I want to think about is The Walking Dead and nothing else.

Grateful for:

People with a good sense of humor. If you’re funny, I love you. That’s all I need to say.
