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 ;)
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.
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
