Sunday Matters: Will You Watch?

Sunday Matters

I am not into football all that much but I do enjoy the Super Bowl. No big parties for us. I will make food and we will camp out on the couch and enjoy it. I love the commercials although there haven’t been any great ones in recent years. I also enjoy the half time show.

Right Now:

I’ve got student ministry this morning but then it’s Super Bowl time. While I’m there I will let my Crock Pot work its magic. Chili and simple finger foods. Gotta work some veggies in too.

This Week:

My daughter decided NOT to do The Little Mermaid. i was kind of shell-shocked by the decision but proud of her too. She realizes she has too much on her plate and wants to zero in on some things she’s put aside lately. Plus, she is still in Godspell so theatre is still there just not TWO shows at the same time.

We don’t really have anything going on this week. Even my volunteer gig at Outreach was cancelled for Monday so I have that night to myself. It feels odd but good to have time off. I know many of you have known me for so long and know how I struggle with balance so this is huge.

Reading:

I finished The Woman in the Window and will have the review up this week.

I am still deciding on my next read but it could be What Rose Forgot. I am on a roll with quick, suspenseful reads so I want to keep up the pace and choose accordingly.

Watching:

Maybe now that I have some time I will be able to watch a few movies. I’ve not been able to watch much.

New Things I’ve Tried:

I tried this awhile back but forgot to mention it. Those Del Taco Beyond Meat tacos? Not. A. Fan. Weird, mushy texture. Like paste. Very weird aftertaste. Like way too much taco seasoning but full of chemicals. I don’t eat a lot of meat so I am all for meat substitutes but this version didn’t work for me.

Grateful for:

Real tacos with lots of cheese and hot sauce. Haha. I’m kidding. Well, not really. Who doesn’t love a good taco?

Will you be watching the Super Bowl? If so, what are you making?

Sunday Matters: A Glimpse of Spring

Sunday Matters

As of this morning, The Music Man is done. We battled illness during its run but The Girl did well even though she wasn’t feeling good for most of it.

Right Now:

I am lounging people. LOUNGING. It’s Super Bowl Sunday and even though I have zero interest in the teams that are playing,  I love all the other stuff that goes with it. Plus,  I have the night off from student ministry which makes it pretty nice.

Some have asked for an update so here you go. My son is good. He’s putting his hours in and exploring Disney World during his off hours. He’s making new friends and he seems to be eating okay. So far, so good.

This Week:

Nothing out of the ordinary this week. Same old stuff. The weather has been unseasonably warm. I mean, it really feels like spring. It’s kind of nice. It makes me think of summer reading.

Reading:

Speaking of reading. I am reading Nomadland for a non-fiction club. The idea of living modestly is appealing to me. I know some people are forced to live in vans or RVs because they can’t make rent but some people do it by choice, refusing to work themselves to death just to live in traditional housing. I’ve read articles where young people are living this way so they can go to where the work is. Interesting.

I have some review books to get to but I am looking for something really juicy to read. Not juicy like a bodice ripper but a good, psychological thriller would be great. Any suggestions?

Watching:

I keep talking about all these shows I want to watch and it  never happens. When I have down time, I am either reading or just hanging on the couch staring off into space.

Making:

Nothing fancy. I tried cauliflower pizza the other day. Interesting texture. Of course, today is a big food day with the Super Bowl and all. We have been invited to a friend’s house to watch the game and with me being gluten-free and my daughter being a vegetarian, we will be bringing some things to the party as well. Plus, they have a new puppy. Enough said.

By the way, The Girl wants mozzarella sticks:

Grateful for:

People with a sense of humor. Gosh, I love to laugh and I love to make people laugh too. I am grateful for all the people who make me laugh.

So, do you have a juicy reading recommendation for me? The kind of book that makes you forget to eat? I want one of those.
