Wow what a great day… Got to sleep-in, baked a cake, had my good friend stop by for a chat, had a wonderful massage by my friend Marilyn Sparling. Made green rolls and soba noodle salad. Then got interviewed on the CBC radio show Mainstreet by Karen mair . Wow was I nervous! We talked about macrobiotics and my after school program . I kept forgetting what I was talking about but with help from Karen I made it through..:) and she enjoyed the cake, green rolls and noodles I brought in for her to try.
