Got My tests Back...

Well, didn't do too great on one test; 77% (C+) and the other test I got a 94% (A just squeaked it, too).

At least I did better than I thought!!!!!

Tis The Season

Hello again!
Time of year to change the window boxes. I love this time of year!

Going to look good once the plants mature a little. Kept them in their pots because it's a short season. Since mums come back for me the following spring (if taken care of the over the winter) moving them into the garage (pots and all) will be so easy. Next year, I'll plant them in the ground.

Thank you for stopping by. Please come again.

Finding Out Test Grades

Wish me luck.

School Tomorrow

Haven't found my test grades online, so far. Think she'll be giving us all the results in class. Bummer. I really don't think I did well (despite the number of hours each day I put into the books) and was hoping to have my reaction in private, as I viewed the grades on the college's online "Blackboard". Really know the material cold but I don't test well, especially after this many years without thinking/learning like this. Wish I had the same confidence my classmates had, after the test.

Guess today is going to be a day filled with worry and Blackboard's page refreshing (just in case)!

To be honest, I don't think I did well on the biology lecture exam. The lab exam may have gone a tIcK better, but probably not much.

Hoping the professor posts the grades online before class so I am prepared for the actual test being passed back.

Over 8100 Blog Hits!


I am so honored that so good number of people find my blog interesting. I appreciate the many which stay tuned and read every post!

Please continue to stay tuned. Never know where I will be next? (Who would have thought I would be in a sCiEnCe program, earning another degree!)

Hello again!
Went apple picking over the weekend. Had a great time. Love making pies with the Granny Smiths. Can't wait for it to cool!

Look At My Little Hibiscus Gals Go!!!!

These are going to be Dinner Plate Hibiscus (can you believe such a tiny plant will produce such a huge flower?). Called Dinner Plate because that's the size of the flowers! The colors are going to be white with pink edges.

There are a total of 4 plants going. Two really cranking (shown) and two sort of struggling. Planning on keeping them inside for the winter and then planting after last frost next spring. They will be very ready to flower when their season comes around.

Supposed to Have A Test Today

Good thing she put it off a week. Nice knowing I am not the only one in the sinking boat!

I am studying more for this biology class than I did for all the classes I took combined, when I got my bachelor's degree!

Having Fun.

Hello again!
School's going well. Really am enjoying the challenge but it's a lot of work. Not at all like when I earned my bachelor's degree -- this time it seems so much harder! :)

For biology, we have to keep a detailed notebook from class lectures, homework and assignments. The good news is, we are allowed to use the notebook during exams. (and yes I do want to "save as..." just in case something happens to this notebook, but sadly, no such thing....)

Can you guess what cell drawing this is? I'll give you a hint, in the human body it's the only cell with a tail (Flagellum).

Hope you guessed right.

Thank you for stopping by. Please come again.

Morning Visitors

While my daughters were getting ready for the bus early this morning, I thought it would be a great time to grab some laundry and start folding. After filling the basket I put it down in the family room and glanced out the window and look at what I saw!

That explains the chomped-on plants I've been finding in my gardens!

Great Holiday Weekend

Had some friends and family over on Sunday. Our poor little house was so full but no one missed any part of the conversations!

Mother-in-law has been staying with us for a few days and what a great help that has been. Although I love to cook, studying and cooking, along with all my other duties it's been hard. With my mother-in-law here, all the dinners have been made for us and boy are they good. Gonna miss it all when she leaves tomorrw!

baby Dinner Plate Hibiscus

Hello again!

This pot of baby hibiscus and another pot of baby hibiscus just popped out of the soil today, exactly 2 weeks after planting. There are two in this pot so when the little guys grow their second set of leaves, I''ll be moving one to another pot. All the little plants will be staying inside and treated as house plants until next spring. Doubt they will give me flowers while inside, but will be more than ready to bloom early in the garden come next season! It's called Dinner Plate because the flowers are the size of dinner plates; around 9" or larger!

In the meantime, my mother-in-law's visiting and we are have a great time. She's going to be moving in with us soon and slowly we are getting things ready.

Made some really great rolls with poppy seeds from scratch, special today. I really shouldn't have because I have so much homework!!! Tons of reading -- Biology and Medical Terminology. TONS! I don't remember college like this the last time I got a degree. Aaaaarg! :)

Thanks for stopping by.
