Sunday Matters: Still Plugging Along

Sunday Matters

Hello! As you can tell from my posting schedule I am still out of sorts health wise. I considered a total break from the blog but it’s the end of the year and you know, there’s still a reading goal to make and some reviews to write. So here I am just doing my best and that’s okay. Just know that my posting may be erratic and depending on the day, may contain a lot of chatter.

Right Now:

I am heading out for my volunteer gig which will keep me busy until 1pm or so. Then, a nap on the couch and an early dinner, whatever that may be.

This Week:

I have my knee MRI this Tuesday.

On Wednesday my book club is meeting for dinner and a book exchange. We normally meet at someone’s home but we are meeting at a restaurant this year. Should be fun.

Reading:

Not a thing. All this medication I am on makes me queasy and gives me a massive headache. I said this exact thing last week and it still applies this week but perhaps I am turning a corner because reading sounds appealing to me now. I will review my review copies and library holds and see if anything jumps out at me.

Watching:

Not much. Lining up the Christmas “must-see” movies so we can get to them before Christmas.

Grateful for:

  • It’s kind of silly but I was really getting into Bible journaling before COVID but I left all my fun pens at work. Well, I just bought new ones so I can journal again from home. I am grateful for all the fun ways to journal these days.
  • Root Beer, the cat. This is the feral cat that my son adopted in Kansas. She has provided hours of entertainment and companionship for my son in that small, dusty little town of 1200 people.

Have a wonderful Sunday and great week!

Sunday Matters: Not Terribly Productive

Sunday Matters

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.

Right Now:

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.

This Week:

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.

Reading:

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!

Ocean State

Watching:

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.

Grateful for:

  • 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!
