Guess who is taking swing lessons, starting Tuesday? What a blast! I only got to dance once, as everyone is pretty coupled up and takes this whole dancing thing seriously. I got asked more than once, but only one brave young man offered to teach me the basics - so we danced a couple of dances and ended with a surprise dip! Boy, did that bring back some "fat" memories - as I figured out what was happening, the first thought running through my head was "there is no way in hell that junior here can hold me up". Obviously, there is some technique to this and obviously Junior knew what he was doing.
On the first Friday of the month, this wonderful facility brings in a big band, and I do mean a big band. Wow - just listening to them was an evening unto itself - and to watch the dancers of all ages. It was enchanting! There were six of us that actually showed up and we decided to return on Tuesday for some lessons. Should be fun!
I need to get a move on - today is Saturday, and it's a bit busier than usual with Brunch-prep going on - although since it's potluck, I'm only making a couple of dishes. I am, however, getting a bit concerned about the seating, as it appears this thing may have grown. And this is always the danger - I will have a plan and right at the last minute, decide that it's not enough and I will do more and I am wrong. Completely wrong. I just have to keep this whole deal right-sized - for my health and wallet's sake. I do NOT want to end up with a bunch of leftovers. It's not like this is being held in the Antarctic. There is a grocery store a short way a away. Repeat after me - I will not over plan.
I've been on the phone a bunch, but it's more about brunch than the challenge, so the count will resume on Monday.
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Find a way to have fun.
