so, here is some of what i've been up to...i should note that mostly i have been socializing A LOT. it's been good, but i never take people pics. i might have to think about changing that if i keep being outgoing :)
okay. but back to the hermit stuff. i showed you the beginning of the strawberry bed, but here it is finished. i ordered the strawberries bare root (ie dead looking) and VERY quickly they started to grow. all 25 of em!
check out the teeny weeny blossoms. almost all of the teeny weeny plants are starting to get BERRIES already! that is a farmer-dream-come-true right there! i hope they continue to do well.
then i went to a class and learned how to make a rhubarb leaf birdbath. it looks better in the pics than it actually is in person, but it's kinda cool. it is wonky shaped and does not really hold water. not sure a bird would be interested, but the process was fun. i started to take process photos, then somewhere in the middle got distracted and forgot. you kind of missed the step that involved peeling the !@#$% leaf off the cement. not really the most exciting part. but working with the cement was okay. it helped that the ladies at the outdoor campus mixed it and did most of the work :)
then today i made a little collage for my basement bedroom that i have been wanting to do for AGES. since that basement room is my little sanctuary (pics to come after i finish up just a COUPLE more finishing touches) the saying seems so fitting. it's made of seed catalogs and paint. i kind of love it :)
so that's it from the back forty. i hope you have a great 4th holiday, and i hope you remember that america is only beautiful because of God :)
