Tuesday: Today’s Forecast: Partly Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs.

29 Apr

“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.” 

― Rabindranath Tagore, Stray Birds


Another cloudy, drizzly day!  But, like the quote, the clouds add color to my sunset sky and my life. When the going gets gloomy, the gloomy go to Zumba. The one hour of fast-paced jumpin’, jivin’, and Latin music can bring energy to any dark day. I wore a fluorescent pink shirt and wiggled myself happy. 

Later, I met a friend for coffee and conversation and decided to wear a bright red blouse. Color brightens my disposition and my day. When I got home, I went for a long walk in the chilly misty afternoon wearing my bright pink jacket. The clouds were so amazing. The sky was a palette of color, even if that color was fifty shades of grey. (Little humor.)
     Now here is my favorite picture. Flags waving against the cloudy sky. A glimmer of sunshine peeking through.

Oh yes… The meatballs…my dinner. When I went to the St, Gabriel’s Spaghetti dinner Saturday night, I asked for mine to go. Left overs tonight.


Taco Tuesday

23 Jan


There are two words that can bring delight to my heart, and they are…Taco Tuesday! I’m not the sharpest tool in the shed when it comes to texting, but when I hear that little “ping” and my friend, Karen, sends a text that only reads…Taco Tuesday, with a question mark, I’m quick on the draw with a two letter reply..O and K.

The food at Rosa’s Cafe in McKinney isn’t out of this world fantastic, but it is pretty good, and the three taco platter is so darn cheap, I couldn’t make it at home for the price.(Under $4 on Tuesday) Believe me, I should know. I’ve been making delicious homemade tacos since I was a little señorita.

But, it isn’t just the food, colorful decor, and authentic ambiance that entices me. I thoroughly enjoy an impromptu lunch invitation from a friend. It means we get to sit for a couple hours jabbering about our week, complaining about our husbands, and extolling the praises of our now grown children. Funny how, as the children get older and move out of the house, they tend to become so wonderful and accomplished, and when the husbands are around all the time, they tend to lose their glowing status and credibility. I guess we just need something to complain about.

The point I’m trying to make is, friendships are special, and Girlfriends are extra special. So if you have the opportunity to make someone’s day with a note, a call, or an impromptu lunch, JUST DO IT! And to quote Carly Rae Jepsen…”Here’s my number. Call me maybe!”
