working on a presentation for my Master Gardeners' group
and cooking for Wonderful Hubby.
I did have to get out some, though. Precious Daughter gave a presentation describing her research project in plant genetics to her fellow doctorial students. She invited us to come and hear her (and give some moral support.) We are so proud of her!!
The presentation was given in the Monsanto Auditorium in the Bond Life Sciences Center on the University of Missouri campus. There is an amazing living wall in the Life Sciences Center. PD didn't want me to take any pictures while she was presenting but I did get some shots of that incredible wall!
Favorite Son stopped by and we were SO happy to see him! (We're pretty proud of him, too!!) He was able to visit awhile before heading to class.
Grandma was thrilled!!
Later in the month, I joined about 40 of my fellow county retired teachers as we traveled to our Missouri State Capitol. We met with over 700 Missouri retired teachers to lobby for educational and retirement issues.
It was a COLD day but we had a great time!
Isn't our state capitol beautiful?
Temperatures are moderating now and the snow is leaving! I'm so tired of it - I'm not going to post any photos of it. In fact, WH and I enjoyed a much needed outdoor afternoon at one of our favorite wineries, Blumenhof, this weekend. It was in the mid 60's and hard to believe the weekend
before we had a winter storm!!
Like many of you, I'm ready for Spring!! Gardening catalogs have been showing up in my mailbox and outdoor ideas are popping up on Pinterest.
I am so ready!!
It's good to be back! Let's celebrate SPRING!!!!
