Sunday Matters: Change in Routine

Sunday Matters

This past week has been pretty good. We had one heck of a rain storm on Tuesday complete with thunder and lightning . If only California had a way to capture all that water. Come summer all that green will be brown and ready for wildfire season. I dread it.

Right Now:

I went to church on Thursday so my morning is wide open. I have a work conference on Monday and Tuesday so in a little while I will probably pack my bag for that.

This Week:

Monday and Tuesday I will be at an Assistive Technology Conference. Tuesday night I have my life group but I don’t think I will make it back in time. I also have to miss outreach. Other than that, the week is pretty normal.


I am reading White Elephant by  Julie Langsdorf. So far, so good.

I’m hearing more and more about Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid.  I don’t know, it just sounds like my jam. Maybe I should buy it for my trip.

We are back to watching The Haunting of Hill House. I’m not sure how many episodes we have left but we are about seven episodes in. That Bent Neck Lady. Ohhhhh she is a baddie. I am at the point where I know who she is but still.

We finally watched Book Club last week. I love Diane Keaton. I love Candice Bergen. I actually love all of the ladies in this movie. It has Andy Garcia too. Um, hello! It was light and funny and sweet.

New Things I’ve Tried:

I feel dumb. I’ve had weird eyebrows for a while now. With the low iron and well, AGE, my eyebrows were so sparse. PLUS, what the hell? Gray hairs in your eyebrows? Was not prepared for that. That made me look like an albino rat. Anyway, I tried a brow pencil for the first time this week and now I look so awake. My daughter uses one all the time, even with her lush brows but I caved and bought a cheap one thinking I’d try it and now I see why people use them.

Grateful for:

The people I volunteer with. All of them. Serving is rewarding but it is also fun when you have good, fun people around you.

If you could volunteer anywhere, where would it be? I took a spiritual gifts quiz and it said that I have gifts in all areas which means I try a lot of different things. It also means, I’m busy.

Sunday Matters: All The Things

Sunday Matters

I finished two of my painting projects. I have a couple more but now I am not sure what I want to do. If you followed my Instagram stories it was quite entertaining. Painting does this to you:

  • Leaves your hair covered in paint. Somehow, I did this.
  • Reminded me of every muscle that hasn’t been used recently.
  • Gives you a new lease on a tired, old, looking house.

Below,  a small kitchen table and chairs set that I re-stained and painted Country White:

Below, my bookshelf that I white-washed and distressed:


These things were perfectly functional but dated so I just spruced them up.

Right Now:

On Sunday mornings I really crave a good breakfast but that means planning and you know that the grocery store and I do not mix. I need a bacon fairy but one does not exist so breakfast will probably be Greek yogurt and granola instead.

This Week:

No big plans. We volunteer at outreach on Monday, Tuesday is life group and then I think we are getting close to a choir concert so rehearsals will begin soon as will volunteering for that.


I am reading The New Me by Halle Butler. It’s a review book I received and it comes out in March. It’s described as a novel of “female rage” but with humor. I agree with this statement. It’s pretty short so maybe I will finish it today.

I am also reading Where The Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens. There is a book club for it on Instagram so I decided to join in. I am pretty excited to read it.

I found I Love Lucy on Hulu and it made me so happy.

Also, The Walking Dead is starting to ramp up. I hope it continues and I hope Daryl continues to have lines. He’s been flying low for two seasons now.

The Oscars are tonight but I am volunteering when it starts so I will miss some of it. How will it do without a host? Pretty well, I think.

New Things I’ve Tried:

The “Two Buck Chuck” from Trader Joe’s has always been decent for an inexpensive wine option but I recently tried the Charles Shaw Organic Rosē for under $4 and it was surprisingly good. Kind of bubbly even though there was no carbonation. I would definitely buy it again.

Grateful for:

It is so nice to have a refreshed room to come home to. It’s so light and bright now. I want to adorn it with new candles and plants. Here’s to making old things look new.

Now that we are wrapping up February, what do you have in March that you are looking forward to? I have a work conference that I am going to. I am looking forward to it being out of the way. I don’t like to travel for work at all.
