I missed posting a blog post on Sunday. But I was able to get through all the amazing comments I’d received over the past few days. I’m always amazed and warmed by the comments of my readers. These comments have become a sort of fuel for me. I always want to take the time to respond and soak in the wisdom that is shared.
I encourage my commenters to click the little box that automagically sends you an email when I respond to the comment you left for me … and for others to read. Oh yeah…. it may not alway be about me LOL.
It was a fun filled weekend. Well at least a My Tiny Tank fun filled weekend. I guess fun is all relative.
Of course Friday was the Whistlers birthday.
I also had the pleasure of reading in the Whistlers classroom for Dr. Seuss’ Birthday celebration. It’s something that is celebrated across the country. I surprised him by arranging to be the reader in his classroom. He WAS surprised.
Here’s a picture of yours truly reading to the class.

I choose to read Green Eggs and Ham. It was a Whistler favorite for a long time. He is in the forefront of the picture in the while shirt. Good thing he was paying attention!
The class enjoyed the story and there was even one student who had never read that book. At the end I talked about how persistant Sam was in the story. He was respectful but persistant. In the end Sam was sincerely happy that his friend like the green eggs and ham.
One boy suggested that perhaps someone else had once convinced Sam how good green eggs and ham were.
How insightful for a third grader.
Makes me think that positive persistence can not only effect change in your life but also in others.
Later that day I took four nine year old boys out for ice cream!! Yikes! That was an experience They were able to order anything they wanted and it was delightful. I enjoyed every loud, action packed moment. In fact they were very well behaved especially after I filled them with sugar. They ate gobs of ice cream.
We had a great family party Friday night!
Saturday we made Sauerkraut as a family. My husband is super healthy and has been wanting to make sauerkraut. As a ferment vegetable it introduces good bacterias into your digestive system. And it tastes good too.
Here are the boys figuring out the math of the recipe.
Me, I was the chopper!!
I chopped more cabbage then you can imagine.
Four weeks and we will have that crock filled with fermented slaw!! Sauerkraut!!
My Mom came to visit us Sunday night and will stay a few nights. I always love when she is in my house.
See the comments on 45 Minutes is too Long for an update on my doctor visit. I made an update in the comments on the outcome of my doctor event Friday afternoon.
I saw my primary care doctor for my annual physical. I will have my blood work done this week and in fact see my hematologist the following week.
I have an exciting update to make soon…. one of my favorite favorite places has reached out to me and wants to sponsor the March Monthly Raffle. I was tickled pink and as soon as we work out the details I’ll let you all know.
