What's to come?

I finished the philosophy class this week and got my final grade today. I am happy. As copying out some threads for my archives, it hit me like a ton of bricks...what exactly WAS I supposed to get out of this class - what do you know, it's Constructing Meaning. That is exactly what the class was about, but I didn't really get that until the whole thing was over.

The next class is...I forget exactly.....Research Methods. I think we will actually do a literature review. Also, we'll learn about qualitative and quantitative analysis, I think from the point of view how to conduct research using these methods. BUT, there are all sorts of research methods.

I ordered seeds tonight. Silver Queen, bush beans but DANG IT I forgot which ones I ordered. I couldn't find the ones I wanted, Kentucky Wonder bush beans. Plenty of KW pole beans, but we don't have poles and anyway, that just makes them easier for the deer to eat. I also bought some dwarf sunflower seeds and morning glory (heavenly blues) seeds. Anything else, I'm buying plants. I hate planting zinnia seeds and when I buy the plants, I can place them perfectly enough to begin with. I love digging in the dirt and planting stuff.

I best practice some karate. We are testing this Saturday and I still need three tips. Tomorrow night will be my last chance to get the tips.

Workin'...or not

I should be workin'...but instead I'm bloggin'. It's one final big paper and a team project to boot. So far, 2/3 of the team is accounted for in "our" efforts. Along with that, I have to do 5 more posts. Then its' another one down for a total of 13 hours complete, 49 to go.

Hmmmm....I hope Sarah is having a good weekend. She is at MerleFest with the Clack Mountain people and I bet she's singing some pretty hill music and making that banjo sound happy. I hope she gets to play with some fine people, and if she could get Ricky Scaggs' autograph for me, all the better.

Well..I think I'm gonna play my guitar a bit and get back to work.
