Trimming the Topiaries

Hello again!
Just finished trimming two of the topiary trees we have kicking around in the gardens.

If it doesn't rain today, I am going to trim another today!

Note Cards...

Hello again!
Here are all the note cards I'm studying for the Medical Assisting degree for which I am aiming! Classes don't start until this coming fall, but I am studying now to get a head start.

Thank you for stopping by. Please come again.

Last Day of School Was Yesterday

Well everyone.
My daughters' last day of school was yesterday (in NH, we had a lot of snow days, elongating the school year a bit).
. . . Goodbye weekdays of mine.
. . . Goodbye early night's sleep!
. . . Goodbye freedom!
. . . Hello "I'm bored" chants in stereo.

Next fall the girls AND I will all be going back to school (provided I can navigate through this admissions process). I plan on learning Medical Assisting.(The admissions process for me will be good practice for when my daughters apply to college).

Schedule will be hefty but because I already of a bachelors degree, a good portion of the courses this time around can be skipped. Still, it will be "fulltime".

To get ahead of next semester, I started studying for the Medical Terminology class (prefixes and suffixes). I know I haven't written note cards for even 1/2 the number of pref/suffixes but at least I will have a few under my belt (so far... over 460 cards). Learning the words by alphabet; OMG, there are A LOT OF Ps!!!!!!

Crossed-eyed, I have been studying the cards for a tick over 4 weeks. Have most of them studied. Once finally finished I'll go through them all again, all at once. It will be interesting to see the stats of which cards I remember and which ones I need to again write repeatedly to remember.

Wish me luck! I think I am going to need it.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hello again!
Garden is really coming along this season. Peony are blooming beautifully. Love the peony and wish they would repeat bloom.

This picture is from the long thin garden along the path, in the front yard.
