Online Dreaming

It's frightening how much time a person can blow browsing through Pinterest, I think I'm going for a personal best.

The best part about Pinterest is that for dreamers and schemers like me who are old and have failing memories, it's an easy way to find those ideas again.

I've started new categories with my garden ideas for the Minnesota homestead next spring.  I figure since it's on the river, it should be a fishing theme...yes?  I know I need permission to dig into the ground, but this would be a container so therefore it's okay.  Anybody got any old boats that no longer float?

There are new boards I've started for the Arizona dream as well, full of ideas of how to revamp an old kitchen since we will probably end up with an old unit down there.  It would actually be fun to paint cabinets, change hardware and see what can be done with some turquoise paint.   I like this style, but would probably paint the cabinets white.

All those Southwest colors are calling to me.   I may have to find a quilt book with southwest designs to play with.

But, in case you are worried, I have been working very hard at staying in the moment and cherishing my time left here in Ham Lake.  I want to the office the other day with our friends Norm & Ginny from next door and made it clear that they were to be given my spot with the gardens.  At least there will be someone on site to enjoy and appreciate them.

Now that our house hunt in Minnesota is over we can dedicate ourselves completely into getting the kids moved into their new house and all settled in before we roll southward.

There is a time to every season.

Long Live the Queen


  1. And it sounds like a shopping season to me.

  2. Ah, the joys of setting up a new homestead. You'll be in your element, designing and creating. It will be a treat to see photos once you get started. I think it's nice that you've bequeathed your garden to friends. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.
