Sunday Matters: Will You Watch?

Sunday Matters

I am not into football all that much but I do enjoy the Super Bowl. No big parties for us. I will make food and we will camp out on the couch and enjoy it. I love the commercials although there haven’t been any great ones in recent years. I also enjoy the half time show.

Right Now:

I’ve got student ministry this morning but then it’s Super Bowl time. While I’m there I will let my Crock Pot work its magic. Chili and simple finger foods. Gotta work some veggies in too.

This Week:

My daughter decided NOT to do The Little Mermaid. i was kind of shell-shocked by the decision but proud of her too. She realizes she has too much on her plate and wants to zero in on some things she’s put aside lately. Plus, she is still in Godspell so theatre is still there just not TWO shows at the same time.

We don’t really have anything going on this week. Even my volunteer gig at Outreach was cancelled for Monday so I have that night to myself. It feels odd but good to have time off. I know many of you have known me for so long and know how I struggle with balance so this is huge.

Reading:

I finished The Woman in the Window and will have the review up this week.

I am still deciding on my next read but it could be What Rose Forgot. I am on a roll with quick, suspenseful reads so I want to keep up the pace and choose accordingly.

Watching:

Maybe now that I have some time I will be able to watch a few movies. I’ve not been able to watch much.

New Things I’ve Tried:

I tried this awhile back but forgot to mention it. Those Del Taco Beyond Meat tacos? Not. A. Fan. Weird, mushy texture. Like paste. Very weird aftertaste. Like way too much taco seasoning but full of chemicals. I don’t eat a lot of meat so I am all for meat substitutes but this version didn’t work for me.

Grateful for:

Real tacos with lots of cheese and hot sauce. Haha. I’m kidding. Well, not really. Who doesn’t love a good taco?

Will you be watching the Super Bowl? If so, what are you making?

Sunday Matters: A Super Short Break

Sunday Matters

The shows are over! Annie has come to a close. Everyone did an amazing job. I’m always impressed at how it all comes together and we’ve been doing this for years.

Right Now:

After a bit of coffee and breakfast I am off to high school ministry. My daughter will most likely continue to sleep. She has some catching-up to do. For those not on Facebook or Instagram, here is one photo of her as Grace, Mr. Warbuck’s assistant.  And yes, that’s a wig!

Em as Grace Farrell.

This Week:

My daughter was just cast in Godspell so I thought we would be skipping the next community theatre project but turns out, she has changed her mind. I am going through calendars to see if it’s feasible. The next show is The Little Mermaid. Rehearsals begin February 10th. See what I mean by a tiny break?

Reading:

I think my next read will be The Woman in the Window. I know all about the controversy. The author sounds completely off his rocker but hey, wouldn’t that make for a very interesting read?

Watching:

I made the mistake of recording that foot show. I’ve watched a few episodes and I am weirdly fascinated by it as well as completely grossed out. Why do people allow their feet to get that way??

New Things I’ve Tried:

I received a sample of Estēe Lauder’s Rapid Brightening Treatment serum in the mail and decided to give it a try. I have one dark spot that has been bothering me. I decided to use this serum on that, to see if it made a difference. The product claims that you will see a result in a week. It took almost 2.5 weeks but that spot is fading and I’ve used only the tiniest of dabs. It’s pricey, but when my sample is out, I may purchase based on the results I’ve seen. This is unsolicited.

Grateful for:

  • The weather, sunny but cool.
  • That another show has come to a close successfully.
  • My reading pace. So good right now.
  • The people who help my daughter backstage.

What’s your view on the controversy surrounding Oprah’s newest book pick, American Dirt? It’s received such great reviews and now this. I was very excited to pick it up but now I’m not sure I want to.
