I've got a busy weekend planned. My neighbor is an artist (I can't help but brag - she is great! check out her stuff here
if you're interested) and draws a lot of inspiration from our local ecosystem. Lately she's been looking at plankton under the microscope. She's got an opening tonight at a local gallery, and I volunteered to put together a display IDing some of the plankton she sees/uses and a very basic "why plankton is important to our ecosystem" poster that will remain with the display. Tonight I'm bringing a microscope and plankton samples for people to look at if they choose. I'm trying to be there to answer questions if people are curious, but not hit them over the head with too much science. Afterwards BF and I will go get a drink at a bar that's holding a fundraiser for a community member who's in need of a heart transplant. Sunday I'm catering a community theatre cast party to make some extra cash. It will all be fun, but the homebody in me is also looking forward to having no real plans next weekend and staying home.
Michele, your HRM question made me think of our discussion a few weeks ago about how many calories one really burns in hot yoga. If you get one I'd be curious to know the results if you do wear it to yoga. Yes I know all of our bodies are different, but I'd still be curious.
Sheila, that's great! One of our local shelters has a program between inmates and shelter dogs and it does good things for both sides.
Chris, I'm sure my parents will be using their snowshoes and cross country skis this weekend. They live about an hour north of NYC on a mountain.
To all those still sick, I hope you feel better soon. And for those in the path of the storm, stay safe and warm! Have a good weekend all.
