Happy "Blooming Tuesday" all...Yes, I've succumbed to the
lure of yet another little bloggy group. LOL :)
Blame it all on Teri C...

burger basket lunch specials,
scrumptious "homemade from scratch" desserts,
and their infamous Friday night fish fry is
a family owned and operated business...
located in Sun Village right here in Surprise, Arizona.
Last Monday, a day they are normally closed...
Martin's hosted their first ever
"Breakfast for the Cure."
Food was generously donated by suppliers for the event...
and the wait staff and kitchen staff
not only worked on their day off...but worked only for tips.
The atmosphere was exuberant and joyful...and celebratory!
The place was packed...and decorated in pink...
and even though wait time was bit longer than usual
everyone had a smile on their face
and a glow to their spirit...:)
The positive energy level that day was beyond supersonic!
(I even got a bit weepy it was so exhilarating.)
Susan , the owner and one fabulous baker, and her sister Peggy
partake in the 3-day breast cancer
"Walk for the Cure" yearly.
Proceeds from the breakfast,
as well as generous bids made on each and every one
of the numerous silent auction items,
made the day a stand out!
I get the "happy chills"
thinking about the power of small community coming
together for a worthy cause and making such a
Days like this are "what it is all about"!
This piece was sketched with a borrowed ballpoint
on the back of a pink silent auction flyer
...taken down from the wall...
(It didn't even cross my mind to bring my sketchbook...really!)
first...on my lap...no backing board...while waiting for our table...
and then continued
while drinking coffee awaiting our food.
I used colored pencil at home to refine details
and improve the readability of my
jiggly lap lettering and lines.
A copy will be given of the drawing and this post
to both Susan and Peggy
as I definitely foresee a vision of a burger basket
on the lunchtime horizon!
