Good morning friends and happy Monday! Today is going to be an awesome day! Why? Because check out what’s on Monday’s agenda….
I’m not used to this freedom! I get to do what I want to do…selfish, I know, but an awesome feeling! Gym this morning, tennis this afternoon, and of course I’ve got to squeeze in some school work later on. So not entirely what I want to do but responsibilities remain.
Since my last post, I’ve had one of the busiest weeks of the entire semester. It seems the more fun my weekends are the
We shared a lovely easter dinner…
of greens, roasted chickpeas, vegan sweet potato casserole, spinach salad, pineapple, and a delicious Sauvignon blanc to wash it down. Dustin had a crusted chicken breast as well.
We are eternally grateful to have a Father that died for us so that we can be forgiven daily. He is so good.
After the Easter weekend, on Monday, I had a practicum rotation site in the Bulloch County Correctional Institute. It was interesting to say the least. I spent the entire day, alone mostly, with the inmates, trying to share as much nutrition knowledge with them as I could. One of the men even told me he was trying to go vegan but it was quite impossible in the jail. I could imagine. While I was rather uncomfortable the entire day, one of the inmates said to me, “You know, I’m really thankful you are here. You’ve really made my day.”
I guess, in the end, it doesn’t really matter who we are serving, so long as we are. I imagine that living in a jail day after day must take a toll on these men, so hopefully I reminded them that that’s not real life and inspired them to improve their behavior and live life the way God intended them to.
The rest of the week was packed as well, trying to finish up projects and study for tests. We even took a quick trip down to Jacksonville to check out my future internship site, the Mayo Clinic, and also to find an area that we want to live.
We rode up and down the beach, which really excited us for this next chapter of our life.
We were able to stop for a snack that looked like this…
…something not even possible in Statesboro. One of the places we looked was across from a Fresh Market. I told Dustin we couldn’t live there because we would quickly be broke with that across the street.
Friday, I spent my practicum rotation at Walker Organic Farm, harvesting, eating, and working with the most beautiful food I have ever seen. It was quite different from the jail, to say the least.
So many greens, herbs, and veggies. This was by far my favorite site that I have visited thus far. I actually believe in and can stand for this type of feeding.
After my rotation on Friday, I quickly left town and headed to Charleston to celebrate a Bachelorette Party for a dear, old friend, Rachel. It had been far too long since I had seen her!
She is going to be a beautiful bride in just four short weeks! Minus the mustache, of course
Saturday morning, another fellow blogger, runner, and dear friend of mine, Katie and I, hit the beach for a long run since we both have half-marathons approaching us quickly.
I can assure you, we didn’t look like this after completing 10 miles on the beach. It was an awesome run especially because I love anything different when it comes to long runs. This time not only did I have new scenery, I also had a new person to share conversation with; we had plenty to catch up on!
It was wonderful to be able to catch up with so many great friends
After returning home yesterday, I had one task on my mind.
A few weeks ago, my sister shared this photo with me via Pintrest.
Obviously, I knew this would be my next project. Last weekend, I bought my supplies, but due to last weeks schedule, I had no time to tackle it. Yesterday, I planted my seeds (I’m hoping I didn’t wait too late) and hung it in the prefect spot.
I’ll keep you posted on its growth; I’m thinking I should have gone with baby plants, but maybe the seeds will work?!
Hopefully by the time we move to Jacksonville, I will at least see something coming through the dirt!
Anyways, I hope you have a wonderful Monday as well…we are off to the gym.
