Early Bloomer

Here is a purple coneflower that can’t wait. Every year they’ve gotten earlier and earlier. They used to bloom in mid-august. I don’t think it’s due to global warming. I think it’s because of the extended chilly spring that we had here. The plants are mighty confused.

I gave In and Got One of Those Bluetooth Headsets…

and now I am going to look like all those other spacedorks out there, talking to themselves while driving. Refuse to wear it while doing anything except driving. Mustn’t be a law breaker in the car…

Self Portrait: Running Is Not For Me

self portrait after runningThis afternoon, when I went to get Special Agent M from school, I realized I’d forgotten my keys and I hightailed it back. I wasn’t sure if Pet-man was staying or taking off. This delayed me somewhat and I wound up running most of the way to school, so as not to be late. Much different than my usual extremely brisk walking. No, I was not wearing inappropriate footwear for the activity.

It brought back not-so fond memories of gym in grade school days, when they would force us to run. The teacher would say, “If you feel like yer gonna throw up, that’s good!” I hurled every time we ran. It was not good. I did not enjoy it.

I didn’t hurl yesterday (probably because I hadn’t eaten), but I did not enjoy the nauseous feeling. It did, however, give me a greater admiration for those who do run. More accurately, I was thinking, “Why do people enjoy this type of self-punishment?”

Do you run? Why? What do you like about it?

Yay! Spring is finally on it’s way!

purple bunny card setI’m in the mood for SPRING! So I made up some springy bunny cards and stuck them in my Etsy Shop!

It’s still kinda cold here in the New Jersey swamp, but the crocuses have started coming up. I know that winter is finally on it’s way out! With every springtime perennial that dares to poke it’s way through the mud in my garden, I feel that usual surge of inspiration and creativity that I always feel this time of year.

Hope it’s contagious!
