Friday Friends:) The Greatest Therapy

2 Sep

“The greatest healing therapy is friendship and love. ”

~Hubert H. Humphrey


Everybody loves Friday. The weekend is just a heartbeat away. Something to look forward to. 

I started out my day as I always do, a phone call to Mom, got dressed, got moving. I actually ate a little breakfast before my walk. The last time I went for a morning walk on an empty stomach, I felt a little queasy. I was working up a sweat and pumping my arms, but then I passed Mr. Larry’s garage. Of course, I had to sit and chat with Miss Sandy and pet big ol’ wolf, their German shepherd. I was offered a beer, as usual, but it wasn’t even noon, so I had to  pass.

I continued my walk and ran into Miss Desra, our mail lady. She always waves or honks, and when I catch her close to the house, I put a cold drink and a treat in my mailbox. Today, I caught her delivering a package down the street, and stopped to give her a hug. We all need hugs and a little appreciation. Oh, and a selfie.

I scooted home to get ready for my senior art group at Towne Creek. I wanted to dip some strawberries and make my Mexican mac and cheese for our little dinner feast.

I packed up and got there by 2:30. 

I decided our project for today would be painting a small canvas with an abstract background, then pick a word or a name or a shape, and outline with glue and sprinkle with glitter. While the paint dried, we worked on some coloring pages.

The projects turned out really cool. We had our feast, cleaned up our mess, then sat at chatted a while. Before I knew it, it was 6:30.

Since I was so close to the square, I stopped over at The Cove to visit with the artists featured this week at the gallery. But, I’m going to save that for tomorrow. Great friends, great artists.

I have the greatest friends!
