The Garden Patch in Pictures


I love gardening. A good friend of mine has a picture on her refrigerator that says something to the affect of, "Gardening is cheaper than therapy... and you get tomatoes." I had to laugh when I saw it, because it really is so true. There is nothing like going out and pulling weeds and enjoying the produce you've worked so hard to grow. As we've been out puttering away in our garden, I've been enjoying snapping away with my camera. I'm finally getting downloading them onto my computer and these are just a few of the pictures from the past few days.

Taking Time to Stop and Smell the Ponies

The picture a little blurry because it was starting to get dark
 Ah... Summer.... The time of year when our garden is starting to take off and the weather isn't too terrible to spend time outside. It's a good time of the year, though I can't say I'm a big fan of the hot temps we've been having over the past few days. This summer I've been enjoying hanging out with my "pony" (technically he's a very small horse, since he doesn't quiet fall under the designated pony height.)

Confessions of a Perfectionist


I have to admit it, I'm a perfectionist.

I struggle with the idea of failure, which I know isn't an uncommon problem. It's a big problem though when everything, that's even slightly less than 100% perfection is only too likely to be deemed a complete and utter failure. Even it's only a percent or two off from perfection.

Boston Trip 2014


Funny as this may seem, I've lived just a hop skip and a jump away from Bostom my entire life and I've only been to the city a handful of times and always just going to one place, never to actually wander and see the sights. So for the very first time ever I finally got to see a little bit of Boston this past weekend.

Summer of Sewing Projects: Update 2


Now that my sewing room is finally finished, it's finally time to break it in with some sewing. I'm finally getting around to working on some of my summer quilting projects. That being said, it was time for a new project for a new room. I pulled out the blue, gray and gold stash I've been sitting on for a while trying to come up with a good idea for and started designing to my hearts content.
