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.

Sunday Matters: October Means So Many Things

Sunday Matters

 

Right Now:

It’s October so the Halloween stuff is up. It’s still so warm but if we wait for it to get cooler, it will never go up.

Plus, we’ve gotten two earthquake alerts that covers the next week. It’s making me a little nervous since it mentions the possibility of a 7.0 or greater. Small chance, but the 6+ we experienced years ago was so strong that you could not stand up.

I sure hope if it does happen, that it is not a big one. 

This Week:

The final cast list for Joseph will be posted on Tuesday. I DREAD the final cast list because the fall show is always posted during my daughter’s birthday week and it can really make or break the week for her.  Please cross your fingers. Pray. Think good thoughts.Oh, pray about that earthquake too while you’re at it.

Speaking of birthdays, The Girl will be thirteen this Friday!  She wants to go to a local Japanese restaurant for dinner, go shopping the next day, have a nice lunch and then see Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.  She has not read the book, nor have I. Should be fun.

Reading:

The R.I.P Challenge started in September but my books were not available so now that it’s October, I can finally start my R.I.P read which is Summer of Night by Dan Simmons. It’s starting to get creepy and it’s reminding me of Stranger Things.  It’s on a lot of horror book lists and I’ve been wanting to read it for years. It’s part of a series which I just learned recently.

Watching:

This new season of American Horror Story is pretty good but it’s off to a slow start (IMO). I am not a fan of witchcraft and right now it’s looking a little witchy but it has a big spooky house and plenty of unknowns so I have high hopes.

It’s October so that means it’s time to pull out my scary movie list! I need to start my movie watching this weekend because last year and the year before, I didn’t get to my faves. My faves being Halloween I and II ala Jamie Lee Curtis.

Making:

Spaghetti and meatballs for tonight.

Grateful for:

All of my books. I’ve been reading some really good ones. Sounds kind of frivolous but reading keeps me grounded.

What’s up with you?
