As a reward for my efforts, I'm taking the weekend off from doing anything around the house. (in theory - it would nice to get my bedroom painted before my next party!) Tonight I'm going out with some friends to spend our "winnings" from bar trivia and tomorrow is one of my favorite events of the year - Berea ARF's Soup R Bowl, an all you can eat soup and sandwich buffet at Berea High School for the low low price of $10! (Kids meals are $5!)
The proceeds from this smorgasbord of soup, wraps, and chili benefits Berea Animal Rescue Friends, a no time limit dog and cat shelter in Berea, Ohio. (and yes, there are always vegetarian and even vegan options!) I've been a volunteering in the cat building for longer than I can remember and I'm really proud to be a part of this organization. I've seen some pretty miraculous things over the years and I've seen hundreds of kitties get fur-ever homes. Plus, it's going to be a pretty cold day again on Saturday, and what's better on a cold day than a bowl of soup?
If you're not able to attend this event, this mainly volunteer run organization is always looking for people to share their time or resources! Visit their site to learn more!
Hope everyone has a great weekend. We'll see if I can keep myself away from paint brushes...
