wine and volunteer

I've done 45 volunteer hours out of a needed 52 (13 weeks).  I have only two more to go to complete the first part of the program.  I'm not sure I feel like doing the second part, though.  It would be another 13 weeks of volunteer stuff, albeit, I can change hospital locations.  Is it 'wrong' not to want to continue?  I think volunteer work is important, but I've been pretty bored in the section that I've done.   Maybe I could just crochet hats and  prayer shawls for cancer patients?

I am thinking of making Dandelion Wine.  It is made in 1 gallon batches, and it takes like a year before it's good to drink.  May be fun to try, though.  I wonder where to gather all the petals (the recipe calls for 2 quarts of flower petals per gallon (that's nearly a bazillion flowers).  I'll still need to buy some yeasties and stuff.  My own wine is going to sit in the carboy forever, then I can add the sulphites, and bottle (and someday even drink!)  I need more bottles...
