Well, that week flew by. My daughter headed back yesterday. It was a good visit. She got the rest she needed and it was really nice for us to be together again. Cat and dog included.
As for my son, no updates on the job front.
I am getting ready to head to student ministry. I’m also trying to figure out my next read. I actually finished another book! Progress.
I don’t have much this week, except I was asked to be on two award panels for work so there will be some meetings for that and a lot of reading as I go through the submissions.
Since it’s been so nice lately I am feeling the urge to BBQ something. I’m so conflicted though because one surgeon gave me a list of all these foods I can no longer eat and nearly everything on it was part of my vegetarian diet. The other one couldn’t metabolically find a cause for the kidney issues so he recommended nothing. Not too pleased with how that all went down.
I finished The School for Good Mothers and Memorial Drive so I am on the lookout my next read. I have no shortage of review copies to get to but I must be in the right mood for some of them or I will hit a wall. Once I get back from church I plan to spend the afternoon reading whatever I choose.
Looking for a new show to watch. Perhaps, Pieces of Her.
- Nap time with the cat and pup.
- My church and the circle of friends I’ve made there.
Have a wonderful Sunday and great week! We survived the time change. Actually, I wasn’t too bad off this time around. Usually Spring Forward messes me up for days.
As a book blogger, reading feels especially good when it’s productive. But it also feels good when you just enjoy what you are reading without a thought as to when you will finish a book, or even when it will get reviewed. I say this because Dune has sent me to the sidelines with my reading productivity, but the enjoyment factor is way up. This meant no reviews this past week and that’s okay.
Almost time for me to head to student ministry. We are in a series on James and it’s so good. All about finding joy in the struggle. It’s hard to do, especially for young people but it’s an important topic to discuss.
As luck would have it, healthcare workers are striking so my medical appointments have been a challenge. I did see the specialist and the physical therapist and have started everything they recommended to me, including the use of a cane. I have tripped on the cane twice. Lordy. The cane is surprisingly helpful though.
I have book club this week and will be reading the club’s pick as soon as I get home today. Hey, at least the details of it will remain fresh in my mind.
My club’s pick is This Tender Land. After this book, I need to take some time to figure out my next read. I was approved for some really great reads lately but they don’t come out until 2022 so my dilemma is, read them now? Wait? I tend to want to read them now. Especially the new Stewart O’Nan!
We have been dipping in and out of La Brea. It is like a cross between Land of the Lost and Lost. It’s sometimes very good and sometimes a little silly. We are on episode four and not sure about it.
- As weird as it will be to not have the kids here for Thanksgiving, I am grateful that we can do whatever the heck we want. I might cook. We might go out! I’ve never done that for Thanksgiving.
- Naps. I have really mastered the cat nap.
That’s all I have. Have a wonderful Sunday and great week!
