It’s off to work I go. Same old same old..tis a bit chipper in the building 48 degrees. As long as I keep moving I am just fine. If I sit down for too long I start to shiver. I have my parka and my winter boots stashed in my office.
There is no heat or air conditioning in the building and there are no plans to put any in the building. It is a historic building. The Board has no plans to make the building handicap accessible either. I may not be the right person to get them to look forward enough to a new building in a new location..one with heat and air conditioning and handicap accessibility…and a future.
I got a new Volunteer..his name is Tom and he loves books and he volunteered to organize the vault that is filled with books in no particular order. He began sorting!
I have spent the last few days cleaning up my office and making my work space cleaner and tidy. AND solving small problems. Note to self..when it is 20 below zero and you drop bags of “stuff” off in the office and say well I will worry about that next spring..next spring really does come. I got the phones working..and I hooked up the computer all by myself and only got two wires mixed up…once I got them straightened out I had internet service. My computer only quit on me once and the printer only crapped out twice so it was a good day in the trenches.
My Prunus triloba ‘multiplex’ is putting on quite a show. This was how it looked a few days ago.
Yesterday was a nice day and the blooms opened. When I got home from work Far Guy said “What is that tree that is blooming?” It really is a shrub..I should trim it after it blooms. Oh yeah..most other people would call this shrub a Double Flowering Plum. It is one of the shrubs that I sold a long time ago when we had the Greenhouse business..I only picked the prettiest hardiest shrubs for our area and this one fit the bill:)
