not AWOL

I can't remember the last time I sat with the river basket and picked up a needle..Heart Like a Wheel languishes, but we've been so busy around the House of Lacativa.  Tomorrow maybe, rain is promised.

Like much of the country Spring has fallen on us like a starving lion. After spending much of last year looking like a sheep meadow, we will finally get a jump on getting the lawn back from the nearly wild.

Really, if I had my way I'd plow the tired sod under and plant potatoes but that would mean serious labor. I don't cut the grass here anymore...the noise drives me crazy.

I have been taking every  opportunity to get out and walk in the local park.  The head space it gives me is wild open wonder.

Somewhere I have a T shirt that must be from the 80's.  It says
"If you are not sore and sweaty you are not doing it right"

                                     And... Baseball is back!!

Walking is such a wonderful way to get out and enjoy nature... nurtures the soul and body! As for the grass, we have prairie dogs here who graze - won't need Ken (the mower) to come by for a couple of months yet...

I don't often make comments on blogs--I'm usually more of a lurker, but I wanted you to know that I think walking is probably one of the best things that you could do for yourself. Walking heals the soul. Sixteen years ago my first child was born. He was born with quite a few birth defects. He lived for two hours. The only thing that kept me sane was walking. Rain, shine, snow, it didn't matter. I walked every day for at least two miles. I'd talk to God and she talked to me. It helped me imagine and create a new life as a different person, because I knew I'd never again be the person I was before. It works--just saying. And yes, I still walk everyday.
I also wanted you to know that I love your work and when it comes to dyeing fabric, I'm a big color junkie just like you.
