Catching up

I was told by my sister-in-law, Valli, that I should start blogging. "Every one's doing it", she said. So here I am. I shall "catch up" by telling you 7 useless facts about myself in which I'm sure you don't need to know.

1. When I was little I dreamed of the day when I could have 26 kids of my own, one for each letter of the alphabet.

2. Getting the mail is my favorite part of the day, I know, I lead a really exciting life.

3. I always overdo everything. I was making a cake a few months ago and I can't just make a cake. I had to make a bee hive cake complete with bee cookies. Karilyn was so upset about cutting it that she didn't even want a piece.

4. Sometimes I wish we lived in a house that was 100 miles from anyone, all alone with just nature to live off of.

5. I'm absolutely terrified to do my triathlon next week, I'm worried I'll forget my shoes, or my bike, or I won't be able to find my bike in the crowd or I'll run someone over or a giant fish will swallow me .

6. I can't go anywhere without a book. I've even taken a book to the library to read while we look. It like a security blanket for me or something. I guess I have this fear of not having anything to do.

7. I've developed a serious obsession with gardening. I'm slightly out of control. My gardening catalogs had to be taped together because I studied them so much. I work outside from dawn to dusk some days and I've even developed a weird bony protrusion on my finger joint from working with the shovel to much. And the funny thing is...I consider it a huge blessing.

Dave says I'm way overdoing my first blog.

I can sympathize with the book obsession. I feel weird if I go somewhere and have a second and a half to myself without a book to read. And I LOVE the bee cake and the garden pics! Heidi is soooooo adorable in that pic! I can't believe your sunflower maze is so awesome. Wish I could see it in person!

Love and miss you! *Hugs for everyone*

I love your blog. It's so cute! Of course, I expect nothing less. This is the first time I've seen the bee cake. How fun! I am expecting frequent blogging and photos to come shortly...

How about some pics of all your garden food? What are you doing with all of it?

Love ya!
