What have I been up to?

Well, I told you about the meetings that weren't going so well but not what they were about. The first one is a workshop on gardening that I'm co-hosting in September. So many little details and some big ones too. The planning committee finally got themselves going in the right direction and the schedule is back on track. I just turned in all the vital information and hotel facts to the national organization so they can post the registration. The next one is the designing of a new museum garden. I was thrilled and honored when they asked me. It's a big job but I'm excited to be able to see a few of the features I have always wanted to see in the garden become a reality. We have to finish the first phase by the end of October when the rest of the museum expansion is ready for unveiling. Top those two things off with fitting in a delayed second honeymoon and moving my youngest child to Maine and I'm a busy girl.

BTW: For anyone who lives fairly close to I-95 along the east coast of the US, my daughter and I will be driving to Maine in November and a few stops along the way to meet people would be nice.

You are busy! I hope it all goes well:)

Me too. I get nervous with each new meeting wondering what will go wrong.

Both projects sound exciting especially the Museum garden project! I understand you feeling honoured, I'm sure I would too!

It beats sitting around looking at the world go by, but some me time would be nice, right?

I'm sorry I don't live in the States, I'd love to meet up with you!

Good luck with everything hun!

Deep down I do like to be busy even though I gripe from time to time.

Daughter and I have our annual DragonCon trip coming in early September. That's some of the "me" time. I'm hoping that my "Karl" and "Orlando" will return to the kilt blowing event for a command performance. There could be another story in the making after the convention. *wiggles eyebrows*

Oh, i liked that story! :-D

Griping can be fun in it's own way! *g*

Oh I remember them! *g*
Wouldn't it be just great to see them there again! *g*
Well, you got me as a reader if you do!

Wow, planning a museum garden? That's freakin awesome! I can definitely see how you're a little busy at the moment :)

Maine, huh? That'd be a far drive even from here! Now, I'd be thrilled to live near the I-95 for beach proximity purposes, but alas, i'm over here in land-locked Pixburgh, though i've thought about doing a DC trip again sometime around fall, but i wouldn't blame you if you wanted to avoid the "DC mess" on your travels either.

Hopefully i'll have some pics from my garden up eventually (how about after this week!)

I love pics of your garden. It reminds me of home with all the levels. No hurry though.

When you know what your route will be, drop me an e-mail at ritalois at yahoo dot com. I'm close to I-26 and would be very excited to host you guys for a good meal if you'll be able to take a short amount of down time.

We are still trying to find a moving truck/van that is not too expensive and a one-way flight back home for me. I now know that it is over 1600 miles and if we could drive it straight thru with no stops for gas, food and potty breaks we could do it in 26 1/2 hours. Yeah, right. We aren't going to try to do anything close to that.
