That seems an odd title for someone who is retired, and every day could be Saturday. But, this week has been horrendous. Not only did I have a couple of emergencies in there along with the usual tasks of the week, but I had made a promise to deliver four dozen berrocks to the Ronald McDonald House on Friday.
Terry worked three nights at the local ball park (if I neglected to mention, he is doing video work for the city’s Triple A team that feeds the San Francisco Giants) so I had some quiet evenings to work on the berrocks. I cooked the roasts on Tuesday and made the filling and did the assembly on Wednesday and Thursday. Here we are delivering the finished product:
The picture was taken by the vice president of marketing at Ronald McDonald House who Terry was meeting with yesterday. He is going to be doing some photography work for them in the next few months, especially planning for their big ball in November. It will be like photographing the proms when I was teaching.
The connection to the Ronald McDonald House came through our work for the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, another organization for whom Terry takes photos. We are scheduled to attend a mixer this next week for the Chamber at a local jewelry store, which is kind of funny seeing that I don’t wear jewelry. Haven’t figured out how I should dress for the event, either. I don’t want to stand out in a good or bad way, just sort of blend into the background. Maybe wear something beige?
My calendar is full for the next week, so I am hopeful that all will be calm and mellow, with just the regularly scheduled activities.
