Give and Give Some More

Today, I went to my youngest son’s class and gave a Culinary Class and demoed how to make waffles.  The kids were so excited and their energy made me happy to be there.  When Ben came home, he had a stack of thank you notes from his classmates.  It was definitely the highlight of my day.

After the demo, I was off to lunch with the Wiesbaden Spouses Club at Cafe Temptation.  Then off to my much needed massage.  I like seeing the blanket wrinkles in my face afterwards.  That means I really let go.  I’m pretty sure snoring was involved.
