“As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.”
Henry David Thoreau

Coming Soon to A Newbie’s YouTube Channel Near You…

Yes.  It’s true.

I’m going to try something new.

I’ve created a short  – well, maybe not so short – video of a walk-through of my garden.  A live garden tour.

Well, a live garden tour of the main garden.  I have other smaller garden areas, but we’ll have to tour those at a later date.

This is not the typical garden, but it’s also not rare.  Incorporated into the whole will be edible weeds, perennial herbs, and a few pieces of whimsy.  I’d love to share it with you.

This is your notice:  please plan to reserve about 15 minutes of time for a soon-to-be-released garden tour.

Providing, of course, that I can figure out this whole YouTube upload business.   🙂


Is It A Bad Sign?

Is it a bad sign when you awaken  and ask yourself, “what day is today?  Can I go back to sleep?”

Then, realizing that Hubby is in the shower, which means it must no longer be the weekend (not that he doesn’t take showers during the week, mind you)…

It took me til nearly noon today to get the blasted cobwebs out of my head.  It was a good (and sober, mind you) weekend, with two seven year-old girls to trail after once again.

I think the campfire fueled by three years of business papers might have given me some sort of chemically induced brain fog.

Here’s to the fog lifting and the day moving along more clearly.   🙂



“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
