Sunday Matters: Kind of Different

Sunday Matters

This stage of my life is feeling a little different from what I’m used to.

It’s less busy.

This part is nice but the high school events I’ve grown accustomed to are not a part of my world this year and it feels strange. This will be short-lived since my daughter, The Teen, will be in high school next year. Still weird though.

Right Now:

We’ve gone to church and just had some lunch. Football is on and The Hub is tearing apart a faucet as I type. The kids have retreated to their respective rooms and I am about to light some candles.

Later, I’ll be with the middle-schoolers at church and then tonight? Nothing except some TV and prep for tomorrow.

This Week:

I’ve got a physical therapy appointment on Monday. This will be #2 for me. I feel that the meds and the exercises they gave me last time have improved my neck and headache, so maybe I won’t have to go too often.

There’s rehearsal this week too but that’s pretty much it.

Reading:

I had to take a break with my reading. That headache I had did me in. I hope to start again soon.

Watching:

I’m going to watch The Walking Dead special tonight where they’ll jerk us around and make us think certain people are leaving but as aggravating as that is, how can I not watch??

Making:

I made pumpkin bread but then the oven caught on fire. Why? Because someone left a taco shell in there and it caught fire. So the pumpkin bread had a very smoky taste to it.

I have no idea what to make for dinner. I’m kind of sick of food these days. Nothing sounds good.

Grateful for:

Quiet moments. I’ve had a lot of quiet lately. It’s given me time to reflect on things.

How are you doing?

Sunday Matters: October Means So Many Things

Sunday Matters

 

Right Now:

It’s October so the Halloween stuff is up. It’s still so warm but if we wait for it to get cooler, it will never go up.

Plus, we’ve gotten two earthquake alerts that covers the next week. It’s making me a little nervous since it mentions the possibility of a 7.0 or greater. Small chance, but the 6+ we experienced years ago was so strong that you could not stand up.

I sure hope if it does happen, that it is not a big one. 

This Week:

The final cast list for Joseph will be posted on Tuesday. I DREAD the final cast list because the fall show is always posted during my daughter’s birthday week and it can really make or break the week for her.  Please cross your fingers. Pray. Think good thoughts.Oh, pray about that earthquake too while you’re at it.

Speaking of birthdays, The Girl will be thirteen this Friday!  She wants to go to a local Japanese restaurant for dinner, go shopping the next day, have a nice lunch and then see Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.  She has not read the book, nor have I. Should be fun.

Reading:

The R.I.P Challenge started in September but my books were not available so now that it’s October, I can finally start my R.I.P read which is Summer of Night by Dan Simmons. It’s starting to get creepy and it’s reminding me of Stranger Things.  It’s on a lot of horror book lists and I’ve been wanting to read it for years. It’s part of a series which I just learned recently.

Watching:

This new season of American Horror Story is pretty good but it’s off to a slow start (IMO). I am not a fan of witchcraft and right now it’s looking a little witchy but it has a big spooky house and plenty of unknowns so I have high hopes.

It’s October so that means it’s time to pull out my scary movie list! I need to start my movie watching this weekend because last year and the year before, I didn’t get to my faves. My faves being Halloween I and II ala Jamie Lee Curtis.

Making:

Spaghetti and meatballs for tonight.

Grateful for:

All of my books. I’ve been reading some really good ones. Sounds kind of frivolous but reading keeps me grounded.

What’s up with you?
