Sunday Matters: Can You Feel It?

Sunday Matters

Hello friends! Here in Southern California, summer can go on for a long, long, time. BUT, all of a sudden it feels like fall to me. The other day we had a freak downpour that came out of nowhere, a few gloomy mornings and it’s been getting dark early. Time to light those candles!

Yesterday we got our flu shots and then had a lovely dinner with friends. The last time we had dinner was right before the initial shutdown. I was still working and I remember how unsure we were about the future of the virus. It felt really good to spend time with them after so long.

Update: the girl is negative for COVID. 

Right Now:

In a little bit I will head to church for student ministry. I am having a blast in this new role I have. I get to spend a lot of time with ALL of the students and many of the leaders. It’s fun to see where these students go with their faith.

When I get home at 1:30pm, I plan to hang out on the couch with Hamnet.

This Week:

I am hosting my book club this week to discuss Hamnet. It came up on me fast. I think we will meet on my patio.

I had a  mammogram the other day and it came back suspect. This often happens with me so on Thursday I have to go to a hospital in the valley for additional testing. While there, I will meet up with a co-worker for lunch. I think it will be okay but positive thoughts and prayers are welcome.


I finished and reviewed We Were Never Here. My library hold for My Heart is a Chainsaw hasn’t come in yet for RIP. Plus, my book club meeting came up fast so I will focus on finishing Hamnet and then hopefully by then my library hold will come in.


American Horror Story: Double Feature is really good and Only Murders in the Building with Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez has been really fun on Hulu. It reminds me of old school Clue.

Grateful for:

  • My daughter’s negative COVID test. She missed the entire week of school. Still feels sick but hey, it’s not COVID.
  • My son finally got his car back from Kia! The dealership in Wichita called him to tell him it was there so he went to pick it up. I mailed his car registration sticker to him just the day before so now he has the car to put it on.
  • Time. I’ve been collecting things to donate and I’ve had the time to finally sort through it all. A lot of it came from my daughter’s discards. The pup thinks we did away with her LOL.

Have a wonderful Sunday and check in if you can!

Whatnot – 09/08/21

The Otter Pup on a road trip.Good morning! This will be short and sweet as I haven’t too much to report. Thank you for all of the birthday wishes! This past weekend was fun. We hit Montecito, Santa Barbara and then hit Ventura Harbor so the pup could go for a road trip too. She got her fish and chips, well, one chip. She has a sensitive stomach so we are very careful with her food. Fish, not breaded. As you can see from the photo she loves a good road trip. 

I try to buy a book on my birthday each year but this year, I didn’t. All of the books I want are coming up on my hold list and when you read a book in a couple of sittings it’s hard to justify $28-$30 for a hardcover. I shall wait, patiently. Maybe not so patiently for My Heart is a Chainsaw

I am currently reading We Were Never Here, the current Reese pick. It’s interesting. 

We Were Never Here

In other news, I’ve been watching Only Murders in the Building with Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Selena Gomez. It is so good. If you have Hulu, check it out. It’s funny and charming and reminds me  of old school mysteries. 

Unfortunately my daughter is not feeling well. She just got tested so please pray, think good thoughts, etc. It’s very hard to tend to her from afar. 

Have a good rest of the week!
