Sunday Matters: June, June, June

It’s unbelievable to me that we are firmly sitting in June now. Water restrictions have hit and I fear that our quarter-acre plus yard won’t survive. It’s really a catch-22 because we have hillsides to maintain and when they are dead and brown they are a fire hazard. Plus, all the new building in our city doesn’t make sense when we are all using the same water source. We will make the best of it but rain would be really good.

My daughter started her new job yesterday. She is the assistant director for a summer theater camp for kids. It’s the perfect job for her and local which makes it nice. My son has been doing well. He found a groomer for Root Beer and has been taking her on walks around the harbor.

Right Now:

Student ministry is meeting today but we are starting summer programming which is light and fun and just cool for hangs. I’ll be headed over there in a bit and then the rest of the day is wide open.

Reading:

I finished Notes on Your Sudden Disappearance by Alison Espach. I really loved it. My review posts tomorrow. Now, I am debating which book to pick up. One of my summer reads? Or something else? Ok, well I decided on Sea of Tranquility.

Watching:

We tried to watch Stranger Things, Season 4 in Palm Springs last week but my hot spot wasn’t working great so that is what we are watching now.

Grateful for:

  • Summer reading lists.
  • This great weather. Not too hot yet.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Sunday Matters: Long Weekends Are the Best

I am off on Monday for Memorial Day so this is a long weekend for me and I love it. I spent this past week selecting books for my summer reading list and I think I have it, even though I only selected ten books. I am going to write it up and share it later this week.

How are you? It’s been a rough news week for sure. You can’t help but go through all of the emotions, anger, sadness, frustration, etc. And yet, we’ve seen it so many times. My heart is with those families. This weekend we get to spend time with our loved ones but not everyone can do that so we will just quietly exist and appreciate what we have.

Right Now:

Student ministry is meeting today but I am taking the day off. I’ve got my books lined up on my Kindle and one physical copy to tote around and I just want to be a slug.

Update on my daughter. She had her procedure last Tuesday. It didn’t reveal anything serious but we also didn’t get much of an answer on how to handle her issue going forward. The hospital was ramped up for COVID again so I wasn’t allowed in and the doc did not leave specific notes. We need to talk to him together, I think.

Reading:

My review of A Good Measure posted last Monday. I had some trouble with the giveaway entry form so if you stopped by and wanted to enter for a chance to win a copy, try it again. It should be fixed now.

My current read is Notes on Your Sudden Disappearance by Alison Espach. I read the first page and fell right into the story. I cannot put it down.

Watching:

We finished Ozark. What a show. I think we may pick up another Korean show but it has to be something that my husband and I can watch together. Still deciding.

Grateful for:

  • That procedure being behind us and nothing serious coming up in the results.
  • This extra day off.

Have a wonderful Sunday!
