A working weekend

This was a pretty full weekend — the advanced gocco class at IPRC, 4 Topics in 4 Hours, yesterday and then yard work (in the pouring rain!) and Portland Open Studios web site today.

I'm too much of a cheapskate to miss the Monday morning yard debris pick is already paid for. So I was out there in the downpour deadheading the pieris and pruning the pine that was getting in the way of the mailbox and newspaper box. Spent the rest of the day finishing the web site. It needs final proof reading, and at least 1 document still needs a group discussion, but other wise, it's done.

The gocco class yesterday went pretty well. We went half an hour over — the printer prints so very slowly, one group waited a long time for their first project's printout and that set us behind. As always, people loved the food segment. And I got smart, instead of using the sour cream+hershey's ink combo for the class, I brought the pb+hershey's ink combo. The pb lasts from class to class; the sour cream, I had to get fresh each time and I end up with these tubs of half used sour cream that go bad in my refrigerator. Why didn't I think of this earlier?

Of course, I didn't do everything I hoped to do this weekend...but yeah, right, like there was any hope of getting them all done. Didn't get to the Portland Open Studios board minutes at all, and didn't get to William Park's profile, but I do have that started in my head, at least.
