If it's 81 degrees out, we must be in... Wisconsin?

Yeppers. 81 degrees~ Can you say severe weather? Spring time in Wisconsin is made up of rain, cold, hot, hail, snow, flowers, you name it! Today was amazing, if a bit humid. We went out for breakfast with my family for my Dad's birthday and then mini golfing! It was warm and the girlies got a little cranky. We are used to 40 and 50 degrees right now, people! I sat outside when we got home with a beer and a book. HEAVEN!! After the big old breakfast and a few chocolate chip cookies, I was feeling a little sloth like :) So, I decided to go for a run! Whoa. If you've been reading for a while, you know that the temps lately have been down right chilly! Turns out humidity and heat are not my friend anymore than cold!! Ugh. It was a tough one today. I'm giving myself a break though. Did I mention it was 81?? After my run, Mike and I rode bikes for a while. He tried to teach me to do wheelies :) I'm getting better, but it's harder than it looks! In lieu of any cool pics (read laziness), I leave you with a picture of my dog Gracie...

Yes, her head is on a pillow and she is covered with a blanket.

  1. I can't imagine how crazy the run was because of the heat/humidity! Glad you guys were able to get a break from the cold weather!

  2. I went from running in cold CT to crazy hot and humid in FL last week and the heat and humidity are not my friends either! It could be a long summer!!

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
