Ladies Brunch One More Time

Tomorrow is the ladies brunch at church that I have been working towards for about three months. All I have left to do today is help decorate, make a pretzel/jello salad, and prepare my devotional.

In the morning before I leave the house I have to make a hash brown casserole and some waffles, review my speech, and wash some clothes to wear. The brunch doesn't start until 10:30am, so I will have time.

The food should be great, and I think the program will be good. I'm a little worried about my song leaders. They are a group of two teens and one adult, and while they know the songs, I'm not sure they will be forceful and enthusiastic enough. And they may not know the songs well enough. But the dye is cast now, and there's no more time.

My husband has been a wonderful help to me because he formats all my inserts, programs, invitations and name tags and makes them beautiful. Each item has little hats on it, and some have flowers as well. He doesn't really like to do this, but he does.

When I get home from the brunch, I plan to rest.

Maybe more tomorrow.

You'll either love this or not. Do you know the cliche "the die is cast" goes back to Caesar? He was thought to have said that when he was about to cross the Rubicon to come to grips with Pompey. Of course, it means the die (one of a pair of dice) has been rolled and the player has to abide by the result. The decision has been made, which is how you correctly used it. TMI? :)

Momstheword, thanks for the interesting info. I really thought "the dye is cast" meant that the colored dye was cast into the water and there is no undoing it now. I guess the meaning comes out to be similar, but I had a whole different picture going.

Thanks to all the commentators for commenting. Lovely encouragement.

Q, I thought of that after I had posted. That once you put your white blouse in the dye, that decision has been made. I reckon either is correct.
