~Why yes, I am a gardener AND a biker~

Motorcycle madness!!

I'm not sure how many of you actually read blogger profiles. If you have read mine, (or are related to me), you probably already know this: I ride a motorcycle. Yep, sure do. And I love it!!! Seriously. One of these days I'll take a pic of my bike and post it. First I have to wash it and well, polish the chrome ;) Just wanted to put that out there!

I am also a gardener. I thought I would share with you a little about my garden. Here is a list of what I planted: lettuce (several varieties), carrots, radishes, squash, onions, potatoes, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, tomatoes, beans, peppers, lavender, cucumbers, watermelon, sweet corn and pumpkins.

And here is a list of what the rabbits haven't eaten: tomatoes, peppers, lavender, radishes, watermelon, beans, potatoes, onions, some of the strawberries, raspberries and one small salad worth of lettuce. Ugh!! The rabbits are little fiends this year. They chewed through my first fence and then dug under the second. I think now they are flying in. It is crazy!! Yet, they are sooo cute :( But I really, really love sweet corn and carrots and lettuce and squash and cucumbers... (btw, they actually didn't eat the blackberry bush, it died for some reason unknown to me).
Whew, with those two things off my chest, I can now concentrate on my next giveaway!! I will post the giveaway tomorrow!
By the way, any horticulturists reading my blog?? We have several apple trees around here and I'd like to know what species they are. Does it even matter??


  1. ohhhh, a giveaway? what is it, what is it??? :)

I have lots of dreams.  They include everything from sheep to road bikes to my dog actually listening to me...

I also LOVE to take pictures.  I mean LOVE.  Sometimes I go weeks without taking a single picture. Weird right?  Why not do something I feel that passionately about, everyday?

Here are some of my most recent pictures:

I live in Wisconsin and feel blessed that there are so many beautiful things for me to take pictures of.  When you're obsessed with barns and farm animals like I am, they're but a country road away!

I'm going to slowly try to find myself again.  For the hundredth time.  I am sorry if that is all I write about here on this blog now, but hey - blogs are journals of a sort.  They just happen to be public ;) 


Yet again...

January 2014.  I'm supposed to be uber fit, an organic farmer and self employed by now.

I. Am. None. Of. Those. Things. Not even one.  For a while, I felt like a big loser, but then I realized:

Ugh.  Yep, it's all me.  I wish. A LOT.  I DO. Very little.  I have no one or no where to place the blame, but on me. I have the tools and the knowledge, I choose to ignore both and do nothing.  It all comes down to choices.

How do I start?  Where do I start?

At the beginning. AGAIN.

-So, I've joined Weight Watchers (I wonder if there is a record for how many times a single person has started and stopped Weight Watchers?  I'd probably win).

-I'm planning my garden and new chicken coop.

-I'm baking bread today (yes, I realize this may impact WW, but homemade bread!!!)

-I'm beginning to make what I can, whether it be food or beauty products.

Too much all at once?  I have no idea.  Will I fail?  I certainly hope not.

I welcome any thoughts, advice or ideas.

And if you …

Proof that I occasionally finish what I start...

New throw pillow covers I made a couple of weeks ago! Finished and started the same day :)  (Sorry the pics aren't the greatest.) I love making these.  They are super quick and easy and are an inexpensive way to change your decor.  Yes, I realize that they don't match each other and yes, they are all on the same couch.  We have a sectional and they're spread out. Besides that, I am eclectic and my home reflects that about me! I'm going to try to take pics of my quilt top tomorrow (read: bribe Mike into doing it for me).  It's been sitting folded up in a drawer since last year. :(  I need to quilt it because: A. It's my first quilt and B. I love it and can't wait to use it!! I've been throwing a lot of love out there in the quilt world the last couple of days, because I am flat out with an injured back.  So to all of you whom I've visited or will visit, thank you.  You're keeping me sane!!  Trish
