Yesterday, I enjoyed a fun decorating project. I had waited almost two years to do this project. On the day that I had scheduled to do the project, I had a conflict that I didn’t anticipate (scheduling isn’t my best skill!). The project that I ended up by doing was a painting at a fun paint night event at St. Timothy Lutheran Church.
What could be more fun than paint night? I had a great time making this painting and hanging out with the other painters. Plus there were refreshments, so it was a win-win situation. The painting that I was directed to make had a thankful theme to celebrate Thanksgiving 2019. That painting is now hanging on my wall next to my front door.
After almost two years, I still feel thankful. Thankful for being alive, thankful for family and friends, thankful for the simple things of life.
Both projects were supposed to be done with groups of people all doing the same activity. But, because of the accidental double booking, my participation in the second activity, which was scheduled for a fall evening in 2019 (the same evening as the paint night!) at the Grand Island Golden Age Center, had to be postponed. Little did I know how long it was going to be postponed!
Yesterday was the day, at long last! I spent much of the day doing the fun creative project, which including painting, gluing, and embroidery. It was a fun activity. I ended up by doing it by myself, partly at the Golden Age Center, where I went to have lunch and play bingo (I didn’t win, lol), and partly at home.
It was a much-delayed activity but it was still very enjoyable, and I learned a valuable lesson from the experience: Don’t double book yourself. It is physically impossible to be in two places simultaneously! Extreme multi-tasking does not work!
What sort of oops experiences have you had lately?
