♫ Summertime...

...and the livin' is easy. ♫

The livin' wasn't easy this week...which served as a reminder that summertime isn't here quite yet (as if the weather hadn't already made that clear).  It wasn't a bad week - just very busy.  

The bulk of my days were spent giving presentations about the student opportunities available through Arts Incorporated.  It's been interesting to see the different reactions of the various demographics found at the middle and high schools I've visited.  I'll be doing more of these this coming week - wohoo!

I've also been able to attend some graduation parties this week.  I love celebratory gatherings (weddings, graduations, showers, etc.).  They provide such a great opportunity to see lots of long-lost friends (and not-lost friends) and have good conversation...usually while eating good food.

Since you all are so good at following directions, I have enough material to write about for probably five more years...not!  I'm giving you another chance to give you input, ask questions, etc.  If I don't hear from you, I'll assume you don't really care what I write about and/or you aren't really reading what I've been writing.

I'll leave you with a short list of things I'm looking forward to this summer:
-a trip to Florida with some girlfriends!
-swimming outside/laying by the pool
-triannual family trip with my home church to Estes Park, CO
-sweet corn
-tomatoes (esp. cherry ones)

Have a good one,

Favorites of the day:

feeling like a college student again when making these at midnight:

Heat oven to 350F. Line 15x10x1 inch jelly-roll pan with aluminum foil leaving a 1-inch overhang on ends; spray foil with cooking spray. Place graham crackers onto foil so that sides touch.
