Left the Clinic with tears on my face. Damn mammogram. I understand that it saves lives, but when it is so painful because they have to squish you flat as a pancake and you turn black and blue and purple perhaps the test is just not worth it anymore. Many women say “Oh it doesn’t hurt.” We good for them..that has never been my case..ever..in three or four weeks the bruising will be gone.
I had to get up extra early to be at the clinic before a busy spring cleaning day at the museum. Many volunteers showed up..some windows were washed..dusting and vacuuming was done..and the Gift Shop inventoried. No not everything was accomplished. No one scrubbed the bathroom or kitchen floors. I will get around to it sooner or later. The local recycling Salvage Depot showed up to take some non artifact things off our hands, an old sofa that was avocado green velvet from the 1970’s, a number of swivel chairs, some old doors and sheetrock left over from a repair.
We had a potluck lunch! Our new president is a Chef. He made the best cake. I will share the recipe someday. You mix it and bake it all in the same pan, and it was warm when he brought it over. I have asked him for the recipe for the May Newsletter (which I have not begun working on.)
Everyday brings in more items to be **accessioned..I have three piles of “stuff” on my desk that is growing and seems to be taking on a life of it’s own. Everyone is so excited that the museum is open!! Have something old..why not take it into the museum and pile it on the directors desk! **Everything that comes in gets a donation form, a number assigned, a photo, it gets entered into the computer system and put in its permanent spot within the museum and THEN a formal thank you is sent.
Far Guy and I had a date night..it was fun to just do something different. We went to a local business that was having an open house, they gave tours of their facility and served beer, pulled pork sandwiches, cole slaw, chips and cake. We passed on the beer and the cake.
The Flowering Crabs (Crabapples) are blooming in town. Photographing them was my reward for not passing out during the mammo:)
