Trish vs. Treadmill

Trish 3 Treadmill 0!!

Woot Woot! Yes, that's right, I have successfully completed three runs on my treadmill! I toyed with running outside today. Look how pretty it was ...

It was sunny and 34. Gorgeous really. Well, compared to what is coming... freezing rain, followed by 4-6 inches of snow, followed by freezing temps. And when I say freezing, I mean wind chills in the negative teens. That's cold people!

However, commonsense prevailed and I ran inside. As you can maybe make out on the other side of the tree, the roads are covered with a little snow and some ice - courtesy of yesterday's storm!

So, if you are brave enough and tough enough to run outside in this - more power to you ;)



  1. I would have run outside because it sounds like you are going to be inside for several days. I would go crazy that many days on the treadmill!

  2. Good choice! I would have stayed indoors too...BY THE FIRE :)) LOL. You keep're doing GREAT! {as Tony the Tiger would say}

    May you & your family have a wonderful holiday season!

  3. I was one of the crazy runners outside this morning in the RAIN!! glad you stayed in and Stayed WARM!! :)

  4. Running in treadmill is a good choice.

  5. yeah, winter has definitely come roaring in for me, the snow keeps coming! This is when I love my treadmill : )

  6. Brrr! I also ran inside today. It's chilly! Nice job :)

  7. good job...treadmill not always the easiest choice...for me anyway..I turn to it more then I want to...

  8. YAYYYY for the treadmill and some good runs lately!! :)

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 ;) 


I'm not sure where I found this, but thank you whoever you are!

My two younger daughters have birthdays this weekend. They are two years minus a day apart.  Blech!  I feel for them, but hey, God's will.

Anyway, they are turning 13 and 15 and NEITHER OF THEM WANTED A CAKE. No cake. For a birthday. No birthday cake.  Huh. I did not make a cake.  I did try convincing them (because, well, it's cake), but nope.  I didn't see the point in making cakes if they would only eat a tiny piece to make me feel good and then I'd have all of that cake staring at me. For days.....

For those of you who aren't crafty or live under a rock if you are in the sewing world, Quilt Market is in Portland this weekend.  I am soooo jealous.  It is a trade show, only open to those who own shops, pattern makers, fabric makers, etc.  Someday, I intend to go to quilt market.  If you'd like to see some fabric/quilt eye candy, google spring 2013 quilt market.  Be prepared, it's awesome…

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 …
