Sunday Matters: Rhythms

Sunday Matters

Getting back into a routine is hard after so much time off. It’s always hard but everything post COVID seems a tad harder. Is it just me? Plus, my house is out of sorts with the kitty cat around. Whatever I put away, she pulls out. Everything is a toy to her. Hair ties, pieces of paper, socks, you name it. All over the house. She is so darn cute though and she knows it. 

Right Now:

I am headed to student ministry. Later? I’ve been in the mood to cook something so maybe I will. Maybe I won’t. Ha! I like the idea of home cooking for the kid before she heads back but she is often not here.

This Week:

Monday is MLK day so I have that day off. Wednesday I have book club and we are discussing Lessons in Chemistry. I enjoyed it a lot. Emma heads back to Missouri on Saturday and begins classes that week. 

Reading:

I have an entire list of review copies I need to get to but I just got one that just sounds like a lot of fun (The Block Party) but it isn’t released until July so I may wait to read it. Maybe I will read Demon Copperhead next. 

Watching:

I did watch The Glass Onion (Knives Out 2, kind of). It was silly. Kind of fun to watch but no case to really solve. Not like the first movie. We also watched Bullet Train. Entertaining with lots of action but not what I expected. It’s a comedy. Many funny moments. 

Grateful for:

  • My son’s short visit in March. 
  • Meal prepping. I do so much better when my work lunches are planned ahead of time. 
  • Super green drink powders. My body always feels depleted so at least I know I am getting what I need when I down these green drinks. I haven’t gotten a subscription to any yet but I may do so soon. 

How was your week and what’s coming up?

Sunday Matters: Jinx the Cat is Coming for Christmas!

Sunday Matters

My daughter’s kitten has no one to care for her while my daughter is here so she is bringing Jinx with her. The Otter Pup is in for a surprise. I also can’t wait to see how Jinx does with the Christmas tree. 

Jinx the kitten!

Right Now:

I need some new ideas for breakfast. Tired of all of it but I gotta eat before heading out the door. In a bit I am off to student ministry to hang with the teens. It’s supposed to rain today which honestly, I welcome. It’s been cold here. We’ve had a freeze warning the past few days with the lows around 33. Crisp blue skies in the mornings though. 

This Week:

The Girl flies in on Friday. I begin my winter vacation on Friday as well. Saturday morning, dental appointments all around. The Girl will be working at the theatre here again beginning Saturday evening. That same evening we are going out with friends to see the Christmas lights. A lot of people decorated this year. Next Sunday is the student ministry Christmas party. Ugly sweaters all around. 

Reading:

I may do something a little different for my vacation this year. I never finished the Harry Potter series. I stopped mid-point at book four. The bookmark is still there. I am thinking about reading the entire series over the break. Might be fun to do that and then watch the movies too. 

Watching:

Christmas movies. The Family Stone, Four Christmases, Deck the Halls, and of course Christmas Vacation. A Christmas Story is also on the list as well as the new movie with Ralphie all grown up. 

Grateful for:

  • My upcoming time off. 
  • Faux fur bath robes. Sounds like an odd thing to be thankful for but I got myself the nicest one, from Walmart of all places. It’s pink and so, so soft and warm. I love it a little too much. 

What is your week looking like?
