Sunday Matters: Winter or Spring?

Sunday Matters

Right Now:

It is so lovely out right now. It’s 54 degrees at the moment and will probably end up being in the 70s. The sun is streaming through the window and I hear the coffee pot doing its thing. It feels more like Spring than Winter.

This morning, the plan is to hit church and then rush home for the Green Bay game. Of course we’ll miss about an hour of it but The Hub seems to think he will jinx something if he watches the first hour so he’s okay with missing it.

This Week:

Off on Monday. Yes. But still have rehearsal. We are in the final rehearsals for Annie. The Teen is getting his ‘Rooster’ down and The Girl’s feather duster/servant dance is coming along nicely. The shows are almost sold out. It’s going to be a good crowd when the show hits in February.

There are two doc appointments to deal with this week and I have to keep reminding myself of them because no matter how many reminders I set (Wunderlist, Sunrise, Keep) I continue to forget about them.

Speaking of shows, The Teen created a Kickstarter for the Spring production of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. He’s almost 50% there but I’m rather proud of the video he put together so if you want to take a peek, do so here.

This Saturday is the winter formal and for once, The Teen does not have to work it. Now that he’s out of ASB he can go and just enjoy it.

Reading:

I am reading this little gem. F. Scott Fitzgerald and old Hollywood. How can you go wrong?

West of Sunset

Watching:

Last night I watched Election. Remember that movie? Reese Witherspoon and Matthew Broderick. The Girl wanted to see it but there were a few parts in there that we had to FF through. I don’t remember those parts being in there the first time I saw it.

I watched Moonrise Kingdom, again. Fun movie. Watched a few more episodes of Orange is the New Black (season 2).

Haven’t caught up with American Horror Story at ALL. Four episodes on my DVR to watch. I can’t watch it when The Girl is around and at night, I am wiped out from the antibiotics I am on. I will get to them soon.

Making:

At the moment, nothing but I want something good tonight. It’s so nice out. Maybe something on the grill?

Grateful for:

This three day weekend and naps. I am not much of a napper but I’ve needed them these past few weeks.

Happy Thought For the Week:

It’s going to be a short week which is good because classes start at the university this week and it will be a bit hectic.

What are you up to? Reading anything fantastic that I need to know about?

Sunday Matters: What’s In a Word?

Sunday Matters

I am still pondering my one word of focus for 2015. I am really stumped. I have a few in mind but none seem to fit. I know a few of you had a difficult time selecting a word as well. Hopefully I’ll have it before say… 2016. Simplicity was a good one for last year

Right Now:

Due to a certain football game, my church activities have been pushed to this evening. We’ve attended the evening service once before and it’s kind of a boring crowd (to be honest). I hope they are a little more lively tonight. The good thing is that I don’t have to rush to get ready so I am sitting here doing what I do best, sip coffee and keep the couch warm.

My return to work was okay. One day dragged on and on and I can be all fine about it now because it’s over but at the time I was in major bitch mode and wanted nothing to do with anyone or anything. Many of you stopped by to cheer me up or caught me on Facebook and it was great. Really. I wish I could put all of you in my pocket and just carry you around.

This Week:

Nothing major this week. Rehearsals, a driving lesson for The Teen, one doc appointment. Totally doable. I may have to toss the Otter Pup into some suds as she is smelling a little corn-chippy. Cat lovers are going “ewwwww” but yes, dogs tend to smell like corn chips after awhile. Maybe because of the corn in their food? I don’t know but her name is not Fritos so she must have a bath. Lucky for me, she loves her baths.

Reading:

I am reading some good stuff. One book is for a tour later this week. Very interesting read. You’ll read all about it later this week. I started the new Stewart O’Nan, as well.

Watching:

I’ve got to get caught up on American Horror Story. I’ve missed the last three episodes. I have them all recorded. I just need to carve out some time to catch up. That is one show that The Hub and Teen watch with me so it would be good if we could all watch at the same time. A dream, really.

The Golden Globes are on tonight. Not sure if I’ll watch though. I am more of an Oscar gal.

Making:

I am in the mood for chili. I don’t think anyone else is though.

Grateful for:

Good medical insurance. I’ve needed to use it a few times this past week and although I had a premium increase this year, I don’t care.

Happy Thought For the Week:

I should have plenty of time to read this week which is always a good thing.
