Friday:) From Sunrise to Sunset

3 Mar

“At sunrise everything is luminous but not clear.”

Norman Maclean, A River Runs Through It and Other Stories


My Friday, from sunrise till sunset.

The alarm sounded at 7 am. Get dressed, feed the dog, take her for a walk, pick up the girls for 8:30 kickboxing class at the YMCA. Yikes! That’s gonna hurt tomorrow. Home, walk the dog again. Get art supplies, bowls, food, snacks, drinks, etc. ready for Towne Creek art class. Make calls to family, and feed dog and walk her again.

I ordered a new phone from the AT&T store Tuesday, and they said it would be in today, at the latest. I called their number five different times. After several dial 1 for this and 2 for thats, no one answered the phone. IT’S A PHONE STORE, FOR GOODNESS SAKE!!!! I tried checking the status on my iPad, but the internet kept churning and churning and wouldn’t go through. I have AT&T internet, of course.

So, I dropped into the store on my way to my art class. I asked if my phone had arrived. They said they didn’t know, did I check the status on-line? Ooh! He shouldn’t of said that. I told him my internet is horrible and no one answered the phone after five different calls. He said maybe later today, but they would call me. Yah, right!

Then, off to Towne Creek. We worked on painting bowls for the Empty Bowls charity event coming up soon. We had a lot of fun painting and creating.

While the paint dried, we had our little feast. I brought sparking apple juice so we could make a toast to Mom.

Back home by 7, and yep, walk the dog. My friend Linda picked me up and we went off to the square to have grilled cheese and fries at Dempsey’s. Now, I just to to post this, put my feet up and have my Friday Black Russian.

Happy Friday, y’all!

      I use Folkart enamel paint made especially for glass. Never use acrylic, it scrapes off. The glass paints are pretty sturdy and not too expensive.I let it set a day, then bake in the oven. 350 for 1/2 hour, and not open oven till it cools, several hours. I hope you try it sometime. It’s fun.
