We're done with our two big events-- Up the Chisholm Trail and Archeology Day, which were held within two weeks of each other.
This is sort of our quiet time of the year...the time where we try to catch up on things that were put off while we were planning for the two events.
What do I have going on? A lot.
We've got a temporary exhibit that opens in early November featuring early maps of the world, the United States, and Texas. I think it'll be a really nice exhibit. I know I enjoy looking at maps.
I'm working on updating our main exhibit that talks about early Williamson County-- new maps, new labels, new photographs. Dana is pulling together an exhibit for one of the exhibit cases.
The traveling Swedish-Texans exhibit will be done soon...very soon. I've designed exhibit panels, received permission to use photographs from other institutions, and am almost ready to send it all to the printers.
We're still accepting artifacts. And, we're still working to get everything (and there's a lot) into the database-- catalogued, numbered, and photographed.
There's always something to do.
