Saturday, Sunrise, Sharing with my “Peeps,” and Sittin’on the Square

What a sensational Saturday! The sunrise was amazing for my morning walk. Then, off to my writing group, home to finish frosting Peep bunny cupcakes to share with my new neighbors, a quick shower, then off to the Square.

  

Look at this amazing sunrise! God painting the sky with gold.

  

Live music, singing, and sit tinning with friends at Sweet Spot Bakery on the square in McKinney.

Oh yes, sharing good times with all my “Peeps.”

  

A lot of happy neighbors and friends.

   

 

Bumping into my good friends Michael and Sherri.

  

Making new friends. This handsome canine was dressed in his formal attire.

  

Home in time for an evening walk and another painted sunset. “Life is so endlessly delicious.”

Saturday, Sunshine and the Square

Walt Whitman

“Some people are so much sunshine to the square inch.”

It was a beautiful sunny Saturday. Mom’s two week visit flew by like a soaring gray hawk in an azure blue sky. (Prose and melodrama.) So, what should we do on our last day? We decided that a nice lunch and a visit on the square would be nice. My favorite burger place in all McKinney is now, ONE AN ONLY BURGER on 380 and McDonald. So good, and the fries are amazing. A large order of fries can feed a small army. 


Then, we went over and sat outside of Sweet Spot Bakery on the Square and we enjoyed some people watching and mounted police watching while soaking up the sunshine and atmosphere.

   

 

While we enjoyed the day, the mounted patrol passed right by us. The horses like to check and see if Miss Kathy is near the back door to give them an apple.

  

After a beautiful afternoon, it sadly was time to go home and get ready for the flight back to Chicago in the morning. But, it was a perfect ending to a perfect day. Hope the snow is gone by the time she gets back. 

I’ll miss you Mom. You always say that I am your sunshine, but you are my sunshine too. 

 

Saturday Sunshine, the Square and Bridal Show

Finally! The sun brought a smile of warmer weather. After more than a week of grey, gloom and the flu, I went out for a lovely morning walk before my writing group. Mandy and I met at Sweet Spot Bakery, went over some pages, then had lunch at Cadillac Pizza. The Square was packed with visitors.

Later, I strolled around the Square, visited with friends, then checked out the Bridal Show at MPAC. I bumped into my friend Khrymsun Parker at her booth. She shared some interesting wedding rituals from different countries and cultures.

There were dozens of booths with wedding venues and helpful ideas. I actually had a lady ask me, “Do you have your wedding dress yet?” I wanted to say, “I have a 40 year old, yellowed and tattered wedding dress in my closet that makes me want to vomit,” but I just smiled and walked along.

My main reason for checking out the show was to see the cakes that Miss Elizabeth made for their display. But, it was fun to see all displays and the young girls with their excited faces.

Good job, Miss Elizabeth. I’ll keep practicing.

I went home, threw on my gym shoes and went for a very long brisk walk. I ran into my neighbor, Kathy, and walked with her all the way down to Baylor Hospital and back. About an hour and a half later, I was good and tired. Mostly tired, not sure about good. I had a cup of tea and made a bunch of phone calls. It was a lovely day.

Now for a night cap! Or dessert? Or both rolled into one yummy Black Russian.
