Growcology 101

                   Today was the first day for our Growcology community gardening classes. There are eight sessions. One every other Saturday for the next couple of months.

                 We  were introduced to how the program works and the itinerary of the the course.

               We met in a hundred year old barn and listen to several people speak their spiel and seen some amazing photos of Steven Wynbrandt, from west L.A. Wow what can be done with a backyard garden when one puts their mind to accomplishing their true heart goals.

                   We will have home work. Homework?  yes homework.... We have to look up terms like Bio-Intensive? And some others also.
           We will meet again, I think on the 19th of this month.


We had to be teamed up with people from the same area. Like ward 4, 5, and 6. 
Our team is named the 'Sprouts'. 

more folks
Lots of folks

                       And I am so excited about what we will all learn from this time of gardening together in the community.

fresh picked
love the colors
Well this morning as I was trying to keep calm for the school day. I decided to make use of my time. I made more Orange Marmalade. This time I used Blood oranges along with a couple of Navels. Boy was it a good turn out. And it didn't take long either. Three hours from the time I sliced the first orange , until last jar popped close seal.
the beginning roll...

I so did not want to be angry because my star student was late again. I tell you what, with her mommy not having to be up and about for work due to work related injuries, I am just like HELLO. SCHOOL is in SESSION.

Okay now that I got that off my chest. We started another late day and finished just the basics. Come on now how can we excel. I don't know why we try sometimes.

But we finished our puzzle today, even if I am the one who did it after school hours.
                                It helped me to relax.

New Feelings

We have had a much better week  all around.
Monday turned out to be a SNOW-Day and she had a blast with her mommy.

My cold is gone , okay almost all of it. My granddaughter is so much herself and we are enjoying some warmer weather.

Today we actually got to go to my WBS. that I have missed the last two weeks. Wow was it a great feeling to be around like minded believers again.
     I haven't even be able to serve in Children's ministry due to the yuck I had. So two weeks away and I was hungry for some true fellowship.
      After we came home we had a great afternoon outside doing our school work in the warmth of the sun.
Even Punkin was glad to get back in the swing of things.
When we finished what we were going to accomplish for school today we worked on our puzzle again. We have decide to use this for brain stimulus and hand eye coronation building. Like that?  It is all part of learning we are applying to our education.

Just a little something to stay in the game of blogging:)

Today I was refreshed.
   I stayed home and watched church service via internet and I was refreshed.
     Then I did some of my WBS( Woman's Bible Study) and I was refreshed.
 I was even able to work on a few scrap blocks for my scrap quilt that seems to to be forever going. But it helped to refresh me.
     My daughter came by and picked me up and we went to Borders Book store, and browsed bargain books and I was refreshed.That was the first trip out of the house since the trip to the E.R. on Tuesday.
       So all in all I feel better and I am refreshed.
I am so glad that this blooming' cold yuck is almost gone. I pray my husband is not coming down with it.

Just wanted to keep updated here. Until next time,
Happy quilting, reading, and gardening.

Oh did I mention I picked up a couple of new books?
One is Herbs and Herb gardening, and the other is a slow cooker cookbook.
