I’ve been super busy this month with Master Gardener activities and it’s not going to let up for the next 6 – 8 weeks. I had two meetings today in Denton, so I stayed in town over lunch and ate tried a new place to eat, The Bowllery.
I tried the Denton Bowl and an Almond Mocha smoothie, both delicious and both completely vegan. I’m going to have to take David there, as I know he will like it.
Their salt & pepper shakers have small figures in them that appear as you use up the salt or pepper. Very cute!
After my meetings, I took a little time to check out the Bayless-Selby House, which is where my group has a tour scheduled on April 19th for our Master Gardener Mini-Tour. The people in charge of the house told us that the gardens would be best that week, but I thought they were gorgeous right now, so I took a lot of pictures. And they have a whole field of bluebonnets!
It’s been a busy week. I’ve finished taxes (or nearly so – waiting on a bug fix announcement from Turbo Tax), mowed the yard, swept up and scooped up cottonwood tree pollen that is coating our backyard, and cleaned off my office table (filing and shredding and re-piling papers). What do you know? My office table has a top to it – quite a lovely one!
Appointment book + tax papers file is all that’s allowed here now.
The curtains for the office came last week. I think they look nice and they have been effective in muffling some of the noise from the office, and noise from the house into the office.
I think the arches – walls – curtains need some butterflies, don’t you?
Taxes. The thought for the weekend. They will be done by Sunday night!
Quiet Saturday. Bill began the first of several Friday late-night-in-early-morning work sessions for a client. The work can only be done on that small window when the system is not in use for production, which is 9 p.m. Friday to 6 a.m. Saturday.
I’m a bit surprised at what a relief it is not to be gainfully employed, even though it was very, very part time work and even though I thought I was enjoying it. But it’s very nice to only have to think about my own work and not feel “on call” for whatever might crop up. Life is good.
More tulips from Texas-Tulips.
