Sunday Matters: All The Feels

Sunday Matters

Good morning! I have been in the best mood lately. It’s this time of the year. I love all the shows, the movies, the books, etc. It’s nearly soup season and I will never say no to a bowl of soup.

Thank you for your good thoughts the other day. The additional imaging and ultrasound that I went for discovered a small lump. The radiologist said, in his professional opinion it’s benign but I have to go back in six months to see if it’s grown. If so, it will have to be removed. It wasn’t there last year. I was starting to get really nervous when I saw it myself on the screen. Ladies, the COVID shot delayed my yearly scan by a couple of months because they tell you to wait at least six weeks before scheduling a mammogram but get your scan in.

Right Now:

I will be heading to church to hang with the J High and High School students soon. Getting my coffee in and having a little avocado toast before I head out.

I finished all the books I was reading. My review of Hamnet posted last Friday. I should have my review of The Family Plot up this week. Boy, I really liked that one. I am at the awkward stage of knowing exactly what I want to read but not having the said book at my fingertips. Now, I have no idea what to read.

This Week:

I don’t have anything going on this week besides work stuff. I need to work on October’s social media calendar for work which is so weird to me. OCTOBER.

I sorted through all the clothes my daughter and son no longer use and have it ready to donate. It will feel good to drop that off. Bags and bags. So much.

Reading:

I have no idea what to read which is troublesome. This is the time of the year that a reading slump usually finds me so I am pushing hard to avoid that. The book I want to read is not available to me and I don’t want to spend $30 on a hardback but I might.

Watching:

I took a little tumble down the stairs trying to NOT step on the sleeping pup and did something to my knee. The pain has left me very restless so I’ve not been able to watch anything on TV. You’d think that couch time and cozying up with a good show would be the perfect way to let my knee heal but nope. It hurts more at rest. All my shows are waiting for me on the DVR.

Grateful for:

  • I’m very glad that the radiologist thinks this lump is benign but please continue the good thoughts and prayers. When the US tech added the markers I started to get very nervous.
  • I am still very grateful that my daughter has such a good friend group at college. Those girls are GEMS. They really watch out for each other too.

Have a wonderful Sunday. Read something good.

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.

Reading:

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.

Watching:

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!
