Today I feel like an old relic..tired. I slept about twelve hours after I nearly frozen to death yesterday, so after supper and a nice warm bath..you can guess what happened when I laid down to watch a little TV..I was sawing Zzzzz’s in no time at all.
I do have an electric heater and yesterday whilst I was writing the May newsletter I sat within 18 inches of the heater..my crocs were very supple..being so warm and all. My office has such high ceilings that all the heat rises..it was about 50 degrees in there yesterday.
Here is the link to the Hubbard County Historical Museum’s Blog. It is still a work in progress, I will post there only once or maybe twice a week. Hopefully it will be picked up by the local newspaper and they will feature the link on the front page of the online paper. (I sent them a request.) I think it will be a great way to stay connected and advertise on a different level. Non Profits have to explore every avenue available to them.
Several of the Board Members do not have computers, I would like to be able to keep them all up to date by emails..but that is not a possibility.
This is the display that takes the place of the curators desk in the foyer. ( I was told that the usual museum desk was intimidating for some people.) The museum light is on when the museum is open, there is a guest book and a bell to ring for assistance and a box for donations. I am supposed to change the display in the glass case..to something Civil War themed. Nothing has come to mind..yet.
This week, the First Grade School Tours start, and I am scheduled to visit the Museum over in the next county on Wednesday (I hope they have central heat.) One of the Board Members is taking my place at the museum for most of the day.
It was a fairly productive week…I am pleased with what I accomplished. Far Guy and Chance came by one day and helped me resurrect the old relic of a vacuum cleaner and took my carpet sweeper outside to clean it out. The carpet sweeper will come in handy when there are lots of people in the building..less noisy than the vacuum cleaner. I need one volunteer to just dust two hours a week..I don’t mind dusting but I always seem to get interrupted. Rumor has it that a Ladies Study Group is going to make us their service project for the next two years..I can hardly wait:)
