Tenacious Tuesday

14 May

“The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure , the process is its own reward.”
Amelia Earhart

Today was a very tenacious Tuesday. I was busier than a horsefly at a rodeo. Call Mom, straighten the house a little, Zumba at 8:30, scramble home, shower, cut up and package brownies, gather art supplies and paints for Tuesday tea time, and be out of the house by 11:45 am. (I’m tired already.)

Whenever I bake a double batch of brownies, I take a container over to Fire Station 5. They always appreciate a sweet little treat from a sweet little old lady. Paramedic Floyd looks pretty happy.

Then, off to McKinney’s Sweet Spot Bakery for tea time, treats and tunes. Miss Kay, Karen and I had our ukuleles, and we strummed a few tunes. Miss Kay played, Karen and I held down the C chord and pretended to play. During our intermission, we worked on painting daisy notecards and on glass votive candles. They did a great job.

Sherry always masters each project.

Miss Kay loves learning new things.

Karen can play a mean C chord and paint a mean candle. Mandy left before I could snap a picture.
I hung out until 5:30, then off too McKinney Creative Community pot luck at SPARC. That’s what the other batch of brownies was for. This is a great group of writers, artists, teachers and other creative people that meets the second Tuesday of each month. After chatting, socializing, and eating, we sit around in a big circle, taking turns introducing ourselves and sharing “what’s new and good.” It’s a great networking group, plus, there’s always good food and conversation.

It was a twelve hour tenacious Tuesday. Always crazy busy, always crazy fun.
