Quirky view of my life: flag, trees, flowers, yard!





What a great pattern--no time for idle talking!





Beginnings of an amazing weave to create a beautiful basket.



I have 30 pics in my gallery

Hitting each day running

My husband and I have been enjoying visits from children and grandchildren; we make weekend visits to family.
As a school counselor, serving 9 - 12 graders, I am trying to stay ahead of the demands of the school year. My husband and I have 10 grandchildren from our blended family. We enjoy our 125 acre farm and keep it groomed for children and grand children. We are working on a few home necessity projects. There are several basket weaving retreats to fit in the schedule from March ...

My Goals:
I resent the thought of having to buy new clothes because I can't keep pounds off!!! I work out to fit in my clothing comfortably. I want to feel energetic and active. I want to bend, stretch and reach without restrictions!

My Program:
I have been making small changes in my eating. Try for 3 yoga classes per week. My Wii fills in the days. Treadmill is my dose of serious aerobics.

Personal Information:
I plan weaving events to enjoy the friendship and basketing time. I work hard to get my real job accomplished to have time to weave! Faithfully using my bathroom scale to keep track of pounds!


Other Information:
Love to weave baskets!
Always game for a huge project.

Rest in peace Mom. It has been 2 years. Miss our silly talks and wonderful drives to see how the world has changed. Even when you could no longer see, as we drove around, sometimes I would run out of descriptive words to show you the world. emoticon

Your baskets are beautiful! I am a crafter of many things, but this is one I have never learned.... it is on my "bucket list."

I went in a shop in Oxford, MS, many years ago, and the owner made baskets from kudzu vines. They were very folksy looking and rough, but were wonderful. He also made woven furniture from the kudzu. Being extremely frugal, I was quite interested in taking this "garbage" vine and turning it into such useful items that were quite lovely.

I also saw pics of some of your flowers. I too, am an avid gardener... just have not had much luck where I live.... Well, there is always spring!! (Unless the house sells first, which will NOT break my heart!!)

Have a great day back at school!!
