My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..
In a day it will be May.. I have been busy I must admit with Wildtree tastings.. and taking a trip to California to visit Clay's sister. ( We were getting tired of cloudy cold temps here) Our Scenic trip to California was gorgeous. Now back and I have been planting the flowers pots. and decorating around the garden shed.. Where there is straw under the wicker set will be bricks, ( I talked my neighbor out of them when they removed their fireplace) I have to go get them yet,,, I have my eye on a couple flowering trees too to strategically place for some shade around the shed. I have an umbrella ( its there on the couch) but take it down when the wind is blowing as it did today. I want the flowers to grow quickly and hope the ones I have in mind will frame this spot where I can escape to dream up more projects, reflect on life and just get away to when I need a break.. I have a vision in mind and its going to take a whole lot to bring it all together. Do you do this? I Clip photos, drawings and pictures from magazines of what my "dream shed " should look like.. It never comes together quickly I keep reminding myself. I do have another quick trip to Washington May 8th for only a week.. To visit my Mom and 3sisters for Mother's day and then Ill be back to start on the veggie garden.. that's awhole other project... BTW I had to put the "girls" into a bigger caged area to keep them out of the garden and My Dream place... They didn't like that much but are getting used to it...and egg production has not halted because of it...thankfully. So until I get back to these projects.. take care and be good to yourself..
YAY! I have been waiting patiently to announce that
We are going to be grandparents again!!
Our daughter Nancy and her husband Simon are expecting their first baby! Nancy has a son.. Oh My .. Jacob will be 23 this year! These things happen right? A total surprise for us all.
We are all over the moon... Its been nearly 5 years since our sweet "Charlie"was born...to our son Dennis his wife Michelle. Now Pj and the boys can have another baseball player or football player coming up in the ranks. maybe.. but don't want to get ahead of our game.. Our only granddaughter Kandace Dennis' first child is 25 in a couple weeks.. just thinking about this makes me feel old... I was there when she was born... My OH My.. Life sure makes us think about our blessings.. and We have plenty to be thankful for.
So as the babe develops so will my updates.. What great News to share...
It is still too early to plant but I am really itching to get staarted. My first step is to go to Bend Oregon Monday with mt friend Leslie to a couple Nurseries do some windowshopping and have a nice lunch.
I have plans to make a cold frame to put outside the garden shed.. and my husband has built me a folding taable for starting my seedlings. I bought apackage of organic lettuce this morning and will start those soon. The weather has been in the 60's this whole week and the night temps are hovering around freezing still.. so I need to prepare for this as I plant.
HAve you been able to start planting? I am really thinking Spring!
We have been busy this past week. Painting our bedroom.. ordering new bedding and making several to do lists..Thank goodness my husband helps paint well, actually he did most of it. while I transformed my craft room into space for my new office for my new home business. I purchased this cool blackboard made from a window frame.. last week and Hubby hung it over my desk area..
What business you wonder?
Check out my website at http://mywildtree.com/INSPIRATION/ then come come back and pop over to my "this hens a cookin website ( click on the egg carton in my sidebar link) I will share there about this fabulous company.
Here at home we are getting ready to paint the dining room and hall.. I think were dreaming thinking its going to be spring! Still very cold in the mornings but warming up a bit during the day hours. I have basil growing in my kitchen pots but thats it.. I look outside into the garden at the "girls" scratching the surface and long to get outside and start the gardening.. sigh*
With new ideas and plans coming together while the weather warms my days are full.. but they always are... The Grands are settled in their school life and daughter is working hard to maintain her 4. in her masters program..(She has her Oregon State Teaching license now) and ready to do some substiturte teaching until she gets hired on as a fulltime teacher.
They all come on the weekends to Sunday dinner and to shoot targets set up in the back yard with their bows and arrows and I get to play a few hands of cards while visitng with my daughter... I am happy and feeling so mch better after the long bout with sinus issues. Yes, life is good here and we have many blessings to count...How about you? Are you working on any special projects?
