A Tribute to Harriette Grant

A Tribute to Harriette Grant


Single Rose My friend Harriette Grant was a Professional Nanny for 40 years. I only knew her for 14 of those years but in that time she became very dear to me. Her day was not complete without her morning tea and her afternoon tea and her tea before bed. She also collected teapots.

She and I started an organization for Professional Nannies called the National Association of Nannies. In November of 2000 she was diagnosed with Leukemia. She passed away in June of 2001 and we wanted to find a way to honor her memory. Every year at our annual conference we have different table decorations that we give away for doorprizes. To honor and preserve the memory of our dear friend Harriette, we use beautiful teapots and tea cups and old linens in the center of each table, then we have a special drawing where we give them away as door prizes.

The women attending the conference love it and we have a way of always keeping that memory of Harriette with us each year. If you would like to read more about Harriette, you can go here.

Summer squash is one of my favorite vegetables. I love the yellow summer squash in particular. They should be harvested while still tender, when they have a "glossy" appearance and are still small. You will most likely need to harvest daily once they start to appear.
