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!

    Where do you have to go on the mini-filed trip? Local garden?

      There’s a whole list of places – mostly public places. My group was assigned to tour the Bayless Selby House Museum, which has adjacent gardens. The museum doesn’t seem to have it’s own website, but I did find a couple of posts about it:
