i have blog envy.

ya know, i read others blogs. i love some of them. very cute. very witty. very inspiring. very creative. very insightful.

then i see how many people are leaving comments; telling them how very cute, witty, inspiring, creative, and insightful they are...and i get a little green. i confess.

how do they have time *every* single day to write paragraphs of interesting information and make us want to read ALL of it and then even come back the next day for more?!

i think if i had my little camera i am pining for then it would be easier for me. visual blogging is much better. although i love words and fancy myself a bit of a wordsmith at times...

right now we are having the oddest sf weather...big puffy clouds...intermittent light showers...sunshine...deluge. ?

off to see ms. dixie loo-loo as she is home alone and absolutely abhors that. i think i will work on some necklaces for the site tonight. new goal: have loads of goodies posting over the weekend.

i still have blog envy.

most favorite, lovely fabulous painter...

what's up buttercup?


*hopefully spring. soon. i saw the most beautiful little promising buds on a baby tree down by a river on a hike i went on this past weekend. it made me quite happy.


*new stuff added soon to the site. we've been running into some snafu's (mainly the kinds called: running out of time). so we are working on it; but i'm afraid it won't be alllll happening RIGHT on march 1st...as i always dream that my schedules are others schedules too; but alas...this is not the case.

what else...

*since we've run into some behind time deals, i'm waiting an extra day or two to send out my thank you incentives. but never you fret, because they are coming soon.


*tofu/mushroom shepherd's pie is on the dinner menu. wanna come over? yum yum.

this is what you shall do...

...this is what you shall do: love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning god, have patience and indulgence toward the people, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem...

smarty pants

so...i figured out how to go into my code and change my settings around a bit to now include links! so check out my linkies to the lower left under archives. i'll be adding to them periodically with mostly blogs that i think are super fun to read...so you can wile away your hours doing nothing productive like staring at all the fun stuff there is out in the world just like me!

i feel like such a bragger for figuring out some of my code - it's a big deal for me!! i get smarter everyday! ha ha!! soon, i'll be like conquering mt. everest and such... ;)
