I AM ME
As you are we...
Getting Nowhere Fast
These gourds have been sitting on my "to-do" table for some time.
I have worked on them twice now and just can't seem to feel the love.
Finally, I stopped.
I just wasn't feeling the inspiration.
As I sat there,
looking at these birdhouses... not liking what I was seeing.
I began thinking...
Where was I?
And I realized that it wasn't "Sunflowers"...
sunflowers are for the dog days of summer.
I was in "Spring" mode.
late nite games & practices.
Tidying up the leftover debris of winter
Hunting for Eggs
Swapping, Saving & Planting Seeds
And Soaking them to...
Hitting the Books
Taking in the bounty of Spring
|Ants & Peonies|
I realized that I was more into eating sunflower seeds
at softball games
than I was
painting them on my gourds.
I looked down at me feet...
saw where I was
decided it was
much easier to be where I am than
where I think I "ought" to be.
So, I allowed myself to be exactly where I am...
I got busy being in the moment.
I have different plans for the birdhouses now.
Found my inspiration!
Surrendered to the fact that a few chickens were going to continue getting into the garden.
Gave my surviving plants some TLC.
I made new plans for my veggie beds.
Started MORE seeds.
A New Flower in the Garden
A piece my hubby made...
Cat & Two Hats
Bill was in serious need of some new welding caps.
I figured it might be nice to hook the poor man up with a couple new replacements.
It is getting a little to warm for the knit hats he had been wearing.
I have a few more pattern pieces already cut out,
I should be able to get some more finished up for him sometime this week.
I also made some horse accessories with some of my left over quilting material.

Don't let this winter coat fool you.
He was skin and bone and afraid of his own shadow.

|Mary & "Phoenix Rising"|
I am so proud of my daughter.
It took a lot of hard work to prepare for this day.
They have both come such a long way in just 2 and a half months.
