Sunday Matters: Feeling Pensive

Sunday Matters

I am looking at the calendar and cannot believe that this school year is almost over. After next week we basically have one more month but what a month it is! So much going on. I love the idea of summer but summer is not slow for us. We just have different types of activities over the summer and they all present transportation challenges.

Right Now:

Meh. I am feeling “meh” again. Nothing a Matcha Latte can’t temporarily fix. It’s my new favorite thing.

This Week:

Two doc appointments. I try not to schedule two in the same week but sometimes it’s out of my hands.

The Girl is participating in a choir festival on Tuesday. This is a yearly thing and the same event where I stepped off a curb and landed right on my face. I have such a fear of that place now!

Reading:

I am reading The Flight Attendant. The reviews are kind of all over the place but it has started off good. It will be a TV movie soon starring Kaley Cuoco. I agree with the casting.

I should also start my book club pick for this month, A Gentleman in Moscow.

Free Books

There is still a little bit of time to download FREE Kindle eBooks for World Book Day! I picked up all of them! Thanks, Amazon!

Get your books here!

Watching:

The Walking Dead is over until next season. This week I am focusing on Fear the Walking Dead. I sure hope this show continues to improve because it too, seems to be flailing a little.

Another blogger posted about a Netflix show called The 100. I thought it was a new series but I see that it started back in 2014. I had not heard of it before her post. Has anyone seen it? It sounds like my kind of thing.

Making:

I am seriously sick of everything. The idea of small bites sounds good but that’s pretty much it. Appetizers for dinner?  I could easily eat grilled fish every day but it’s not popular with the family AT ALL. Making anything good this week? Inspire me.

Grateful for:

Once in awhile I go along my merry way and then get derailed. When this happens, it’s like a wake-up call. Pay attention. Don’t take things for granted. Admit that you don’t have it all figured out. It’s a humbling experience, this process. I don’t enjoy it, but I am often grateful for the snap to attention that it provides.

You ever have one of those moments?

Sunday Matters: Everything is Good

Sunday Matters

The Girl is back from Hawaii. She had a great time and declared immediately upon landing that she wants to travel more.

Us? We are pretty good. It was a return to normal as far as our schedules go but we eased into it okay.

Right Now:

I recently finished The Music Shop by Rachel Joyce and the feel-good feeling I had upon turning that last page has stayed with me. More so because I keep listening to the playlist the publisher put together on Spotify. I am just sitting here happy with my coffee and playlist.

This Week:

This week should be pretty good. No extra appointments just the normal stuff.

Reading:

Right after finishing The Music Shop I picked up Sunburn by Laura Lippman. What a book! It was impossible to put down once I started it so I should have the review up very soon. Next up, The Flight Attendant and that TheMystery.doc book everyone is talking about.

Watching:

The Walking Dead season finale is tonight and right after it is the season premier of Fear the Walking Dead. As soon as I get home from volunteering I am gonna throw myself in front of the TV and hopefully watch both although it will be a pretty late night for me.

Making:

Let’s see. What am I making? I plan to make some Spanish rice for life group this Tuesday. I need to BBQ some salmon for lunches. I’ve got a craving for the kind of pasta sauce (gravy) that simmers all day long. Half of my family is Italian so that is where I get it from. I want thick sauce with loopy noodles. Sometimes I can find really good quality gluten-free pasta so maybe I will get lucky.

Grateful for:

Feel-good reads. I don’t care for sappy novels but the kinds of books that leave you feeling all warm and fuzzy? Who doesn’t want to feel that way?

Share with me a book that you consider to be a real feel-good novel.
