Sunday Matters: Weekend Vibes

Sunday Matters

I am always so excited when the weekend is finally here. After a long week there is nothing better than waking up to a hot cup of coffee. One that you can truly enjoy and savor. My favorite thing.

Right Now:

You guessed it. Coffee! In a little bit I shall start my day. I’ve been a little out of sorts. Nothing major just a tiny bit off. Maybe it’s all the weight I gained on this new nutrition program I am on. I lost and then I gained it all back in one day! What is up with that. I feel like a total slug.

This Week:

The callback list for The Wizard of Oz will be posted on Tuesday. Cross your fingers that The Girl is on it. I think she has two games this week. I also have my life group meeting and some volunteering to do but that’s it.

Reading:

I am reading a fun book, The Boy at the Keyhole and I am enjoying it a lot. It kind of sits on the edge of the R.I.P Challenge wall but I am going to count it towards that challenge anyway. I think the new Kingsolver book is up next.

Watching:

I watch a lot of the same stuff because I just don’t have time to watch much more. Fear The Walking Dead keeps trying to be something but I am getting tired of it not being anything. It has a decent cast now so do something with them!

American Horror Story is always a crap shoot. Will it be good this season? With it be way over-the-top and weird or will it be really clever and smart? It can go either way at this point but last week’s episode gave me hope.

Trying:

I changed this category from “Making” to “Trying” because that is what I do these days! I try different things and products and time-saving tips and some are great and some not. So “Trying” is what I am calling this space now.

This week I tried the Trader Joe’s  gluten-free crispbreads I heard about. They are pretty good! Very substantial and hold up to toppings well. I topped them with the Almond Dip I found there. It’s vegan and a sub for spreadable cheese. It’s spicy and the texture is good for those crispbreads but the flavor is a little weird. Lime, almonds and jalapenos. Not sure I’ll buy it again.

Grateful for:

My bookshelves are overflowing with physical books. This hardly ever happens. I only keep what I love and usually my review copies are in Kindle format. But I’ve gotten so many review copies in print lately and my shelves are bursting! I need to get them read and off to a good home because there is no space. I’m so grateful to have them though. So many beautiful covers which you just don’t get with a Kindle.

What’s new with you?

Sunday Matters: So Far, So Good

Sunday Matters

The first week back at work went smoothly. It was busy but I was well rested and so productive!

Right Now:

Trying to get back into my routine again so church this morning and then volunteering later. In between I plan to do some reading.

This Week:

We are not quite into production week yet but The Girl auditions for Oklahoma! some time this week. There are volleyball practices and Music Man rehearsals and us working at Outreach. My life group kicks off again on Tuesday so I am looking forward to that.

My son leaves for Orlando soon. Very soon.

Reading:

I am finishing Seven Days of Us. It’s pretty readable. I like the premise but it is a little slow. It’s taking me longer to read it than I thought it would.

Watching:

I am going to sneak in an episode or two of Black Mirror sometime this week.

Making:

I laugh at this. I don’t make much these days. Our meals are pieced together healthy things like rice cakes and hummus or almond butter sandwiches.

Grateful for:

My MIL is going to let us stay at her house while we tent our house for termites so I am grateful that we have this option.

So tell me, what is new with you? Hard to stay away from the news these days but man, every time I turn it on something hits the fan.
