Hi strangers! I know, I know, it’s been a while since I blogged. This semester has been completely crazy. Midterms went well but I’m pulling many 12-hour days just to keep my head above water. Next weekend is a long weekend so that will be nice! Sam’s been running participants for her study and is getting very close to her target number!
We are still finding time here and there to keep up with our ongoing mission to see the city. A few weeks ago we went to the Regina Floral Conservatory. We learned that they change the plants about every six weeks and it was all set up with pumpkins and lots of pepper plants when we went. It’s an all-volunteer effort and they do some amazing work. We saw lots of neat cacti, including one called the old-man cactus which was wearing a sombrero.
The weather has been getting pretty chilly and I have no doubt that they will be stocking up on poinsettias soon. Sam is in full Christmas mode. After Halloween, she wasted no time buying a Christmas tree. We tried to get Marilyn to be a tree topper but she declined. With our flights home booked, we are certainly holding out for Christmas!
