3 Quick Thoughts on Saturday, February 11, 2017

Since I didn’t get this done last weekend, I’m repeating it this weekend!  My main goal this weekend is to take down most of the Christmas decorations – the tree and my Santa collection.  I’m going to leave up the floral décor until the end of February.  By then I’ll be ready to bring out the spring flowers.

I did get a good start on Quicken this past week, so I feel confident I can get it caught up and be ready for taxes by the end of the month, barring any unforeseen emergencies.

I can already tell that my Master Gardener experience is going to take up more time than I anticipated.  Multiple emails this week about multiple volunteering options – it’s easy to see why so much is going on right now – it’s getting close to springtime and that’s when gardening opportunities come alive.  A required mini-field trip that we have to take outside of class and make a presentation on the last day of class (in May).  All in addition to the weekly class and weekly class assignments / quizzes.  This week has flown by!

I’m still trying to get caught up from being away from home for half of January and then being sick with a horrible cold when I did get home.  The piles of receipts on my desk are threatening to take over.  I have some entries to make in Quicken to finish up 2016 and be ready for taxes later this month.  And I haven’t even thought about tackling anything outside – I just look out the window to the back yard and sort of shudder.

My main goal this weekend is to take down most of the Christmas decorations – the tree and my Santa collection.  I’m going to leave up the floral décor until the end of February.  By then I’ll be ready to bring out the spring flowers.

I attended my first Master Gardener training class this past Tuesday.  Luckily, it was mostly a fill-in-the-paperwork, get-to-know-you, here’s-the-test-format type of meeting.  With the cold I had, anything more would have been difficult to absorb.   I must remember that I have Master Gardener homework to get done before next Tuesday!
