Big Doings in Georgia

this week(end)!

Starting today, The Friends of the Library/Old Book Sale opens to the public in Macon, Georgia...I've been to this and let me tell ya'll it is a Book Lover's Dream...

Plan on getting there early (you should be on the road right this second) and waitin' in a Long Line to get the best selection...and bring some big bags...and maybe an extra body to sit somewhere so you can deposit books until you're ready to head to the check-out...

If I didn't have to head to work this morning, I'd already be half-way to Macon...

AND Georgia Organics is hosting the Georgia Organics Reclaiming Agriculture 13th Annual Conference & Expo this weekend...

Mr G and I are headin' up tomorrow for workshops and we'll be there Saturday for the educational sessions too...even tho' we're giving ourselves a cool 2 years to build up a fund to purchase a Little Farm of Our Own, there is no time like the present to start building a knowledge base for actually being able to handle some of the what-seems-likely issues of Farm Ownership*...

This is exciting stuff!

**************************************************************************
*and I'm hopin' this conference will encourage me to be willing to toe the line on our About To Begin Budget Strict Savings Thing...

Sigh....how I wish I was going! I love Athens. I've been wanting to move there for years now but since hubby has to fly every week he didn't think he'd like the trip to the airport from there.

I didn't know you all had an interest in having a farm! When did that happen? Tell all!

Be sure to post about the conference. I'd love to know all about it!
