Sunday Matters: Fall Feelings

sunday-matters (1)Hello, all. I’m not one to rush the seasons. I prefer to enjoy the season I am in but it really is beginning to feel like fall, even though it’s 97 degrees and humid. We don’t usually deal with humidity but it’s making the mornings a little gloomy, which to me, signals the coming of fall. PLUS, I saw a tweet for the R.I.P. Challenge and you know that is always the kickoff to fall for us readers.

Well, The Girl is back in Missouri now setting up her new pad. Our poor pup is so confused. All the comings and goings. She will sit outside her bedroom door for a couple of weeks waiting for her to come out. She still looks for my son now and then.

Right Now:

Coffee, then student ministry. It will be a busy day of training but we have some great leaders coming on board. It’s going to be a great season.

Reading:

Still reading The Last Chairlift and Verity.

Watching:

Still watching Sisyphus on Netflix. It’s Korean with subtitles but so, so interesting. A CEO who develops a time travel “uploader” finds himself in the past and the present as he looks for his brother who supposedly died but he keeps seeing him. All around. He also sees the people who have come and gone using his invention, not realizing that it actually came to fruition since it was only in its beginning stages in the present day.

Grateful for:

  • Publishers who are generous with their review copies. I recently received that new Irving but I just received Cormac McCarthy’s new releases too (The Passenger and Stella Maris.) I was so excited to open that package.
  • My daughter’s friends in Missouri. They are really special and are so good to her. Makes it easier for me to send her back!

Have a great Sunday!

Sunday Matters: I Am Feeling ALL the Things

sunday-matters (1)Hello, friends. Once again it is Sunday and I am feeling all the things.

  • The Girl heads back to Missouri State on 8/6.
  • I head back to in-person work on 8/9.
  • Student ministry is about to kick off a new season. New students, new pastor, new volunteers!

The planner that has mostly sat empty all year is now filling up with special dates and events. It makes me a bit twitchy. You will be proud of me though. I will NEVER go back to how it was before the shutdown. I limit myself to only a few appointments a week now and if it doesn’t fit into that rule then it’s re-booked or not booked at all.

Right Now:

Enjoying some coffee while watching the morning news and then I am off to student ministry. It will be a busy day.

Reading:

Still reading The Last Chairlift. I am really liking it. Trying to pick up my pace a little so that I can read other books along with it but so far it’s my main squeeze.

Watching:

We settled on a new Korean show to watch. Sisyphus. It’s about time travel and there is a lot of action. Good acting. Very entertaining.

Sisyphus

Grateful for:

  • Friends who can tell when something is a little bit off with me, and reach out. I had an off week. One of those weeks where you just wonder “Why?” and no less than three people noticed it and reached out. What a difference that made. Thank you.
  • Venmo. It’s the preferred method of payment for my daughter’s new apartment and it just makes things much easier for this mama.

Have a great Sunday! Try to do something fun today even if that is hanging out on the porch with your new read.
