Okay, it didn't help that I didn't get up till noon.   hihi  Somedays I just have to tell myself to calm the fuck down woman, your world is cool.  Turn the scanner off, get the to do list out of you head and relax.  Isn't that what you are looking for?

The little talk with yourself doesn't work.   hihi  Alert is still nagging at you, you're still up and running even though physically, you're sitting typing at the computer.  Anxiety attack?  They have pills for that.  hihi  But I'm going to say no, not what's going on.  Too much coffee?  Not yet, I didn't get up till noon and is that ever a problem?  Lots of open space on that calendar, did I forget something?  Possibility, always a possibility, but I don't think so.

Hmmm, going to go take a long walk among the Christmas lights and chill.  It's only in the 40's out there so of course I'm going to chill.  hihi  But it's with a group of people including Marsha and DJ.  Undecided  I really just want to be all snug back at the house waiting for this to go away.

Aw hell, no rosemary.  Today is their day.  I'll give them a little longer.  I soaked the seeds so really they should have come up earlier.

Personally I find it hard to articulate it properly.

There are just some shows that have 'it' the band might not be note perfect, the vocals can be hit and miss, and it can still be a great show. In the same way I've seen note perfect performances by bands and come away without feeling like it's been anything special at all.

I think it might be more than just the show itself. I mean, imagine the difference between going to a show on a Saturday night compared to a Monday night. You'd assume a Saturday night crowd would be more energetic, right?

Would you rather have songs released in 2021 and 2023, or nothing and then "new" songs in for example 2025?

This really isn't different from GN'R recording songs like Reckless Life or November Rain. Songs that existed before the band had even formed.

I for one think that it's kinda fucked up that the guys have been back "together" for over 7 years and they still haven't released ANY new material... instead all the releases are leftovers from CD. They always like to tell in interviews that they're going to write and release new music, but I don't think they actually even intend to. And listen, I don't think they HAVE TO write or release new stuff, they really don't - they're all financially sound by keeping this never ending nostalgia tour going. They don't owe anything to no one, but one can still wish...

Okay, I wouldn't read this but I have to wrap my head around it.  Marsha is giving me shit for asking for $200 in plants for the 3 bed renovations.  Says I knew we were short on money when we came up with the project.  We've told the other leads they have to run their plants through the plant sale sourcing because we may getting better pricing.  If not, they can buy a plant if they have a reason for that plant including lack of presence on property and educational value.  But she says a couple of them are mad I'm asking for plants outside of the plant sale when they wanted to but didn't as we have money problems.  And nobody goes over to the backside of the property.

Okay, the project only went over by $50 this year because I had $150 in my budget.  We ran into trouble on the hillside with the slope and built a raised bed.  For the last two years I have had a budget.  Before that I never had a budget for the Foundation Gardens and it's only because the guy who takes care of the front of the building likes artistic displays up there.  I've cut him off this year.   hihi  She wants me to give back the money I don't spend if the plant doesn't cost as much as I figured it would.  Yeah but what if another plant cost more?  But that's not what I said at the meeting.  I showed what plants we were looking for, the total estimated price and said I would agree to cut it down for the plant purchase which was even below the plants I said I really needed.

We brought no plants.  We used the plants that were there, got plants from propagation and other beds.  The money we are spending on plants for next year is for plants we can't get through the plant sale.  They are not on property and very specific to the themes.  For example, native bees are usually plant specific, educational.  The beds are theme, again educational.  Lots there for the public but I've also got 17 newbies on the project getting hands on training.

I ask which leads and what they wanted.  She didn't want to tattletail on them.  And couldn't tell me what it is they wanted.  I said they didn't speak up in the meeting when I asked if anybody else thought of something they wanted.  If I don't know they are wanting something, I can't help them get it.  There was other budgets we could have cut more.

I've asked for years for a sign that says we have gardens around back but we don't have the money for it.  We do take people back there on the general garden tour, there is a path all the way around the building, two of our speciality tours go back there and it is on the garden map people can pick up when they visit.

That's taking it non personally.   hihi  Justifying it to the rest of the leads if anybody asks.

But I would just like to come back to Marsha with the thousands of dollars she is spending.  She didn't volunteer to reduce any of her budget this year until we made the first run through and discovered we were only over $100.  I let her spend an extra 500 over her budget this year from extra funds and she also got an extra 500 donated to her garden.  She gave her budget at the retail price knowing full well we were getting it wholesale and with a rebate yet, she insists she gets to keep all that.  Not make it available for the whole garden or give it back.  I defend her project all the time from leads who think she's spending too much.  And her garden is locked so visitors have to look at it from the fence.  Why the fuck is she giving me shit?!   rant

Alright, the only reason I'm addressing this with her is she is saying it to other people.  I'm sticking with the nonpersonal response, not using her as an example and pushing the positive narrative.  Our basic goals of completing projects in progress is moving forward.  Nothing here for me to worry about or take to heart.  Marsha can deal with her own head and what's she's all about with this. hihi

Budget process went pretty smoothly.  We were aiming for $4000.  We landed on $4100 and Marsha offered to have what they won't fund us for taken out of her budget.  Nice of her to offer considering we pulled out the money this year to complete nexts years boardwalk project.  She's a year ahead.  With the up coming budget she is getting all the wood to complete the boardwalk.  All that money went in at full price.  We get a discount like we did the last time and 24% off in the first week in January from Menards, we're looking at part of the stone path she wants around the strawberry bed.  We get a $600 grant from ag for all the plants she wants, there's the rest of the stone path.  We could be looking at finishing off the Fruit Arboretum next year.

Pantry Garden, another big ticket item, is getting all they want except we forgot the Rhubarb.  I'll gift them a couple and there's alway moving some of that money around.  Each plant is only $6 and I think we're only looking at 5.  The retaining wall in the Cottage Garden is a have too, money for that.  I did say I rather liked building those, right?

My three bed renovations didn't do so well.  Out of a $427 request we agreed to $200 this year for the keystone plants and the rest the following year.  That's what I said.  Again that was a full price estimate on prices we saw on the net.  I'm a better bargain shopper than that, I have three people saying they are will to gift us plants we have to buy and I can substitute some plants we are looking for with plants we have.  I don't like my projects dragging out.  They come on time,if not early, and under budget.  We will be finished in the spring.

Everybody else got pretty much what they wanted once we cut out the fat and supplied them with what they needed from what we could scrounge up.  I'm good with $4100.  A little nervous.  That's $1900 below our average.  I can always go back and ask for more.  I hate that and it may not be there.  I still have the problem of, is what we are spending out there worth it?  Are we getting our educational bang for our buck?  I need more programing and more people coming to the gardens.  It would be nice if the gardens could generate some money too, besides what we do for the plant sale.  I like that the education is free that we are doing and the food gets donated to the pantry.
