I saw a Bluebird!

I saw a bluebird a couple of days ago. I was thrilled, and of course I didn't have my camera. It's early for them to show up here, usually they don't come back until mid to late Feb. So it was really nice to see one before winter sets back in. I got a 2 mile walk in the same day, and it really felt good. I've been slacking BAD, I was walking two or three miles a day untill about 4 mos ago, then I started only walking 3 times a week , then 2, until I completely stopped. It's been about two mos now since I stopped and I can really tell. I have some Leslie Sansone Walk at Home DVD's that I enjoy during bad weather, I haven't even been able to bring myself to do one of them. So I felt really good about my walk Monday. Of course, it's Wednesday now and and I haven't done it again, but I WILL get started again. Really.

 I posted a picture of my workspace before, here is one that's just a little more realistic. I got enough nerve to dye one of only two larger gourds I have. Since I grow my own,and because of our growing season, most of my gourds are smaller.I'm figuring out how to help them along, starting seeds indoors before season, watering, etc.  This one is one I have been putting off starting  because I didn't want to mess it up. I like the color so far, and I have an idea of how I want to go forward.

I'll keep posting on the progress of this one, I think it may take a while!


  1. Thanks for dropping by my blog and entering the giveaway.
    Your gourds are beautiful. I can't wait to see what you do with the one in the photo!
    Your work space looks great compared to mine. I am in the middle of cleaning out my studio. I did take a before photo but I'm embarrassed to share it until I have the after photo ready!

    Very nice blog. I'll be back!

  2. Love the gorgeous picture of your farm! Ah, someone else who's slacking off on the walking... (^_^) Glad I have some of Leslie's DVDs for when the inspiration hits, tho. Nice blog!
