It’s funny when your body buckles under the weight of what’s in your head. Not ha ha funny. But funny. I had grand plans for this week and my body trumped them with muscle spasms in my back. Soon I go to the doctor. Then back out in the garden.
Work can only be trumped for so long ya know.
i’m reading the happiness project right now. anyone ever read it?
in some ways it is trite and annoying and makes me want to throw my kindle. in other ways it at least gives me a plan of attack for changing the things about my life that make me want to throw my kindle. and everything else for that matter.
i’m thinking about trying it out.
oopsie. this was an attempt at making a burlap bucket without a pattern. I wanted it to be long and rectangular, but it didn’t work out that way. the good news is that i have plenty more coffee sacks, i know where I went wrong, and it’s the perfect size for a potted plant. or something.
my bounty from an estate sale. 28 vintage sewing patterns at 80 cents apiece. i love them, all of them. can’t wait to make something with them instead of just staring at them.
the garden-it’s coming along just fine. (i am pretending there was no snake sighting in the garden today)

a quick little springtime wreath I made this weekend. I can’t decide if I like it or not. I followed a tutorial that showed the whole thing covered in ruffles, but making ruffles is annoying and i ran out of patience with just this part. Part of me likes it, part of me doesn’t. Luckily (?) spring is almost over, so I can put it away soon and reconsider it again next year.
a little mailbox before and after.
the wood on the old post rotted and left us with a box that was hanging sadly to one side. new post, new numbers, and new flowers. funny how fast things change- this pic was taken like a week ago and the flowers have more than doubled in size.
I had no idea that squash blossoms look like this when they are open. It lasts a few hours, then they wither away. They almost look tropical. I was sad to see them go, but happy that them fading away means that squash will be here soon.
