Sunday Reflections – 11 September 2022

Sunday Reflections Button

Reading:  The Ballad of Never After by Stephanie Garber

Listening:  Interior Chinatown by Charles Yu

Watching:  What else but football?!? 🙂  Don’t worry. Holly and I are still working through Veronica Mars, and we are all rewatching New Girl. Based on recommendations from friends and family, Jim and I are watching The Secrets of Skinwalker Ranch. It doesn’t impress us after five episodes, but everyone keeps telling us to stick with it. It makes for good background noise, if nothing else.

Cooking:  With us leaving soon, I’m just trying to eat up the fridge, so we had a lot of leftovers this week. I did manage to make a copycat Cheesecake Factory pasta recipe and used my slow cooker for the first time this fall for a fiesta chicken. It was a good mix of old and new recipes.

Enjoying:  Football. Cooler weather. Planning for our trip. Spending time with friends. The end of summer. My autumnal decor.

Planning:  This week, it is all about our upcoming trip. Mail to hold, clothes to pack, packing for the dogs and the kid, making sure she has everything. And now, we have to plan for the national holiday, which will be the Queen’s funeral while we are there. Since nothing will be open, we must ensure we have places we can visit and food for that day.

Feeling:  Jim and I were discussing that it is beginning to feel surreal that we will be flying over to London with Holly but leaving without her. I admit to at least one panic attack and one crying jag at the thought. Plus, we are having so much fun with her this summer that it isn’t making the idea of letting go any easier. These next two weeks are going to be very, very interesting.
