We always have activities going on at the college where I work.
Yesterday was the Sustainable Living Fair. As always, this is an event that is open to the whole community and costs nothing to come to.
The Ojibwe have a special connection to the earth, and the college always makes it known that they are very much into recycling and sustainability. We even have a Green Carpentry certificate program!
Look at all the neat things that they had going on!
And what goes better with a fair than food! And believe me, whenever there are doins in Indian Country, there is sure to be LOTS of food!!
A nice little bonus that went along with this (for me anyway) is that I got to be one of the judges for the Contest Potluck. *Happy Dance*
I got to pick my own categories that I wanted to judge, so I took Desserts and Breads. Oh man, was I ever in trouble. These people could really bake!! Unfortunately, I could only pick one winner from each category based on the criteria for our judging, but eventually I narrowed it down.
It was so nice to see some of my previous customers from my store there and catch up on how they are doing. I miss them so much, and they miss me.
But I know that there is a reason for my current employment status, and I’m very grateful that I have this type of environment to work in. I love what I do and the people I work with are simply the best.
And really, when these types of events happen, how could I not be happy?
