Sunday Matters: Theatre, Books, and Painting

Sunday Matters

This past week was pretty good. I kicked the cold, had some fun and picked up my reading pace (finally).

In theatre news:

My son got the role of Daryl in Bright Star. It’s been awhile since he’s been on stage so this is perfect for him. Plus, it’s a fun musical. It’s bluegrass which is different and fun.

My daughter got the part of Rusty in Footloose.  In the movie, Rusty was played by Sarah Jessica Parker. It’s also a fun part. She’s thrilled.

Right Now:

Last week we watched the church service online because I was sick so I supposed we should make an appearance today. I enjoy going but I have to go back later today to volunteer too and there are only so many hours in the day.

This Week:

I took this weekend off to take my high school students to winter camp but camp was cancelled. I kept the days off though so I plan to spend Monday painting. I need to paint a table and chairs set, a coffee table, and a book shelf. Will it all get done? If I finish one thing I will consider it a successful day.

No major appointments this week.

Reading:

All of these great reads came in the other day:

Watching:

I don’t know if I admitted it here before but I’ve been watching Dr. Pimple Popper. I watch this show with the same fascination I have for Hoarders. How can people live with a grapefruit sized cyst on their neck that’s been there for years? I’m sure many of these people do not have medical insurance. That HAS to be it.

New Things I’ve Tried:

I haven’t tried anything new yet but I plan to use the painting technique I saw on Instagram on those tables I mentioned. I would never think to mix water and paint and then to use a sponge no less. I’ll let you know how it goes.

Grateful for:

This week I have been really grateful for my coffee press. It’s such a simple device but I use it daily and it gives me such pleasure to press out a perfect cup each and every time.

Are you crafty? If you could paint one thing in your home what would it be?

Sunday Matters: Sickness Has Hit

Sunday Matters

We said goodbye to the rain, but in came the cold. I like to be cozy so as long as I can cuddle up with a blanket, which I even do at work, I am good. But when I have to attend a meeting in a very cold conference room, I look a little odd carrying my blanket around. So be it. I got hit with a cold this week and I don’t care what I look like with my blanket.

Right Now:

Just sitting here. Still trying to recover from whatever happened to my throat after that allergic reaction and this cold on of it. I feel as if I damaged some vocal cords. Inflammation CAN do that because it happened to me once before so I hope this is not happening again.

In a little bit, we will head off to church. Later, volunteering with the high school ministry. We have a new, earlier start time which means I will be back before 7 p.m. and in plenty of time for The Walking Dead.

This Week:

My daughter has auditions for Grease on Monday & Tuesday. I have to run her to her orthodontist appointment during her audition and then run her back.

My son got a callback for Bright Star. Hopefully I will have news on that later.

My life group meets on Tuesday and we will be having a “Gal-en-tine” celebration. I am making spinach and artichoke dip which I will serve with tortilla chips.

Nothing planned for Valentine’s Day but maybe we will order in.

I was supposed to do Winter camp with my high school group over President’s Day weekend but it was cancelled due to low enrollment. I am keeping my vacation request as is though. Long weekend? Yes, please!

Reading:

Trying to wrap-up An Anonymous Girl. My word for the year should have been SLOW because I am not reading very quickly these days.

Watching:

I haven’t been watching anything but I plan to watch The Walking Dead premiere tonight. I don’t want to give up on the show but it hasn’t been good at all and now that Rick is gone. Well, I just don’t know.

New Things I’ve Tried:

A blogger friend introduced me to Korean skin care videos on YouTube. Seriously, those girls know how to take care of their skin. Anyway, I noticed that most of them used cleansing balms to remove makeup so I picked up a cheap version of one I heard about, Ponds Cleansing Balm. It’s really weird! It is like solid coconut oil but liquefies as soon as it hits your skin. It melts off my makeup very quickly. I don’t wear much but I had my daughter use it for her stage makeup and it worked well.

Grateful for:

Very grateful that my weekend has been quiet. Gotta get over this cold. I cannot stand being all stuffed-up.

That’s all I have. I hope you have a wonderful Sunday.
