I can almost taste Fall in the air. The days are almost too warm..in the mid eighties but the nights are delightfully cool. I end up shutting all the windows before morning.
The fall flowers are in bloom.
The Asters of fall..I am not sure if this is a Crooked Stem Aster or not..it is a pretty little Aster…I guess I will leave it at that.
I have 16 days left at the museum and many projects to finish up. Oh I am so not a newsletter person..but it is almost ready to mail out. I wish I had a secretary..that knew all the ins and out of the publisher program. Oh and someone who knows all about PSI files..one of the former Directors scanned a bunch of photographs and saved them to CD in that format..Why?? I have no idea? I can go into the images in some fancy viewer(Irfanview)..some files I can save as Jpegs and some will not convert. ( Stomping my foot up and down..what am I doing wrong?) Why..why why are some people idiots? OR is it I that is bordering on Idiotdom?
Yesterday Sam came downstairs to visit with me a bit about the Civil War..his Mom who works upstairs in the Art Museum home schools him. He is a doll.. and was very interested in the Civil War. He knew quite a bit about it already..so we just added to his knowledge. I found three great books in the Library Vault for him to look at. Having someone to talk with really broke up my day and helped me to fight the wish I was done with the newsletter and images that will not convert feelings I struggled with most of the day.
Visitors to the museum have really slacked off. Of course it is warm again..and who wants to be in a stuffy old museum anyway? I want to be outside too ..enjoying the Fallness:(
