The Wild Blue Phlox is blooming. There are great patches of it along the highways. I took my photo on the back driveway in the shade. This Phlox is a native perennial.
Usually there is no traffic..but Kate came home just as I stopped to take a photo. So I had to stop and see the poison ivy kids at her place..the twins readily showed me their poison ivy spots. Aubrey showed me the noise maker that she made in Vacation Bible School. Everyone threw the ball for Chance!
Seven weeks down at the museum and sixteen weeks to go to freedom. Yes, I am counting the days. I am also getting a bit discouraged. We have a BIG ta-do coming up. An editor from a magazine is coming to visit the museum. This next week everything that can be done will be done..Que sera sera.
I have no control over some things..like paint not being delivered when it was supposed to be. A huge cardboard box filled with barrier board that should be in display cabinets instead it is leaning against the desk in the Clerks Office..where in the world am I going to hide it?? Fishing equipment not hung up properly. Painting’s waiting to be hung. A thousand pounds of books that need to go up or down the stairs. Another hundred books that need to be accessioned in or boxed up. A new computer needs to be hooked up…I guess I will need a new monitor also…something about new computers don’t have the same hook ups that old antique monitors have. I have been saving everything off the old computer when it has been working ( in between the blue screens of death). This is my first experience with a Flash Drive..but as long as I save what I can in Rich Text Format everything should be okay. We got a grant from our local Electrical Cooperative for $1,000 for a computer and a printer and software…now I must stretch that to include a monitor..the printer may have to wait. Luckily my baby brother got us a deal on the computer so I have a little money to work with. Still..decisions need to be made…in the meantime I will dust yet again and hide some of the mess on my desk under the desk.
The work days I have scheduled are becoming less popular..or ignored. So the bulk of the work falls to just a few..that is the part that is discouraging. Soon I will have my best Board Members all tuckered out. I need more active members. I will guess that the average age of one of my members is 70 years old. I did get three new members this week..all in their 80’s.
Oh well..today is a day off. Que sera sera:)
