Just Another Manic Monday

14 Jan

“Always believe something wonderful is about to happen. You are in control. Never allow your Monday to be manic. Don’t let the word Monday scare you, do something awesome.”

I got up before the 6:45 alarm to get dressed and walk the dog. A busy day ahead. My morning entailed going over to the Collin County Courthouse before 8:30 am. A long story and a favor for a friend. It all worked out and I hung around to visit the court room of my friend, Judge John Roach Jr. Very interesting.

When I got home, I needed to prepare sandwiches for the pot luck for the senior center country dance, cut up and pack up the cake for my firemen at Station 9, and cut up the brownies and peanut butter Snicker pie for McKinney Creative Community.

On my way to the dance, I dropped off the cake at Station 9 around 1pm.

Firefighter Summers had a big smile, a big thank you, he and asked me how my Christmas with family in Chicago was. I had mentioned before I left in December that I’d be gone all month. How nice that he remembered.

The dance was fun, as usual. Over 90 people this afternoon. I just looked at my phone step tracker, and it looks like all that dancing added around 8,000 or more steps to my day. Having fun and getting steps in at the same time. Cool!

After the dance, I stopped at Whataburger for an iced tea with friends, then stopped at the thrift store to check out the treasures and bargains. Then, over to McKinney Creative Community at The Cove before 6.

My friend and amazing printmaker, Lynn Hubner, had her artwork still on display at The Cove, so I was able to see the amazing work before our meeting. I was so sad when I thought that I missed this art show over the weekend.

Our guest speakers were the owners of a new fun creative shop on the Square called GRAPHITE. Trina Brown and Leslie Gardner shared their backgrounds and vision of starting a business that focused on bringing back the beautiful art of the written word and communication.

Graphite is located at 211 N. Tennessee St., McKinney. The store offers variety of unusual pencils as well as sharpeners, erasers, stationary, stickers, cards, books, socks, and T-shirts. The store also offers a variety of classes like handwriting, calligraphy, letter writing, journaling, resume writing, and sketching. Other classes and workshops are forming. If you have some suggestions, Trina and Leslie are open to suggestions.

McKinney has the greatest group of creative and talented people, and they all share their dreams and visions with the community.

It was a busy awesome Crazy Manic Monday, but I wouldn’t change it for the world.
