I continue to be surprised by the response to my presentation at the school on Wednesday. Several students have responded on my blog, and I have heard from many others via their Moms on FaceBook! Today, I also received notice that the presentation was featured on the school’s website. I want to thank Christine for a beautifully written article… you outdid yourself and I’m not sure I was as good as your article alluded. But thank you just the same. For anyone interested, you can see the article here (I’m not sure how long they leave them up): www.npsd.org
The most touching response was from a student who said she wants to work with cancer patients when she grows up. She recently lost a friend to cancer, and her dad has lymphoma. I was inspired by her drive at such at a young age and I’m sure she will do great things!
I’m so happy it’s Friday and I’m looking forward to a weekend of no major plans. It will be nice to sleep late, hang out in my pj’s, and just putz around the house. (Ok, so sleeping late might just be wishful thinking…I’ll be happy to sleep at all!) I have a long list of things to get done so it’s nice to have a free calendar. It doesn’t stay free for long, as the next several weeks will be quite busy with graduations, parties, and training at work.
Here’s a question for all my vegetarian friends (or anyone, really): What kinds of vegetables do you grill? I have grilled portobellos, zucchini, peppers and onions. I know I can grill eggplant, but what else? I’ve grilled corn in the past, but until I’m sure I”m getting local (non-GMO) corn, I’m staying away from that. I’m just looking to expand my summer go-to options, when I’m grilling turkey burgers for the boys, so I appreciate your help.
