Sunday Matters: It’s Coming to a Close

Sunday Matters

How is everyone doing? The school year is coming to a close. It’s been a good year for The Girl but we are ready for a change of pace.

Right Now:

Kind of a routine day. Church, errands, more church.

This Week:

Theatre has their Senior Showcase this Tuesday. The Girl was asked to be in one of the student directed scenes so we will be going to that. Should be fun. They are doing four pieces from the show Parade.

The Girl made JV volleyball for next year. Yay!

My son is doing well in Orlando but they are having some weather which has forced Typhoon Lagoon to close a few times. Closing means loss of hours so this concerns him a little. Also, he was extended until July 26 which I shared here but most of his good friends were not extended. They all left last week which has caused him to be a little homesick. Understandable.

Reading:

I am in the final pages of The Female Persuasion. I will probably post the review sometime this week. I am digging it.

King’s new book comes out this week! The Outsider sounds very good. I hope it is. No formal read-along but Nadia is going to read it with me! Anyone else plan to get it as soon as it comes out?

Watching:

Did you watch the Royal Wedding? I had plans to get up early, eat gluten-free crumpets and drink tea but 3 a.m. on my day off would  have been a bit much.

On another note, Fear the Walking Dead is SO good this season. It was in dire need of something and I guess that something was a new cast and new writers. They’ve added many new characters and with Morgan crossing over from The Walking Dead, it’s really good now.

I am still watching the Roseanne reboot. It seems to be settling down a little. Not with the topics but the actors seem to be falling back into their roles. Initially it was rough going. Painful, even.

Making:

I finally made that big pot of pasta sauce I mentioned weeks ago so we ate pasta many times this past week. One night was grilled cheese sandwiches. I can’t really recall anything else. Food just hasn’t been that high of a priority these days.

Grateful for:

I am very grateful to have found the weird smell in my house. It should be noted that I have a very sensitive nose. I can smell the slightest thing and for weeks I have smelled something foul. Well, I found it. A little “puddle” left by The Otter Pup. Actually, it was a large, dried-up puddle. It has since been removed and now my house is clean smelling again.

Sunday Matters: Feeling Pensive

Sunday Matters

I am looking at the calendar and cannot believe that this school year is almost over. After next week we basically have one more month but what a month it is! So much going on. I love the idea of summer but summer is not slow for us. We just have different types of activities over the summer and they all present transportation challenges.

Right Now:

Meh. I am feeling “meh” again. Nothing a Matcha Latte can’t temporarily fix. It’s my new favorite thing.

This Week:

Two doc appointments. I try not to schedule two in the same week but sometimes it’s out of my hands.

The Girl is participating in a choir festival on Tuesday. This is a yearly thing and the same event where I stepped off a curb and landed right on my face. I have such a fear of that place now!

Reading:

I am reading The Flight Attendant. The reviews are kind of all over the place but it has started off good. It will be a TV movie soon starring Kaley Cuoco. I agree with the casting.

I should also start my book club pick for this month, A Gentleman in Moscow.

Free Books

There is still a little bit of time to download FREE Kindle eBooks for World Book Day! I picked up all of them! Thanks, Amazon!

Watching:

The Walking Dead is over until next season. This week I am focusing on Fear the Walking Dead. I sure hope this show continues to improve because it too, seems to be flailing a little.

Another blogger posted about a Netflix show called The 100. I thought it was a new series but I see that it started back in 2014. I had not heard of it before her post. Has anyone seen it? It sounds like my kind of thing.

Making:

I am seriously sick of everything. The idea of small bites sounds good but that’s pretty much it. Appetizers for dinner?  I could easily eat grilled fish every day but it’s not popular with the family AT ALL. Making anything good this week? Inspire me.

Grateful for:

Once in awhile I go along my merry way and then get derailed. When this happens, it’s like a wake-up call. Pay attention. Don’t take things for granted. Admit that you don’t have it all figured out. It’s a humbling experience, this process. I don’t enjoy it, but I am often grateful for the snap to attention that it provides.

You ever have one of those moments?
