For a treat, we found some wild blackberries that were just perfectly ripe and warm from the sun. They are a little early but the bush grows up next to the brick at the base of the house and gets sunshine most of the day. We ate them on the spot, no nasty chemicals to worry about. This should be a great year for berries. We have two or three more wild bushes on our place. None of the others are ready yet. I love living in the country.
I recently started reading "The Onion Girl" by Charles de Lint. It is as good as I had hoped. So far I have enjoyed everything of his I have read. In the introduction he mentions several Celtic musicians that I had not heard of. Can't wait to look them up. I have to work tomorrow, but I am enjoying my weekend.
My grandkitty is curled in up in the recliner. You would think she was the one who had been out working. Such a silly thing.

more photos. Took these while I was on a walk. The lizard let me get this close, then he took off.

I am trying to learn to let go. Thank goodness husbands don't grow up and leave. (At least mine won't) I have been married to my best friend for nearly 25 years. He suits me just right.
My camera and my Ipod are a lot of fun. I love music too. Hopefully my posts will become more about me and what I love to do and less about my nest.
We have a lovely old house and lots of ideas for painting and redecorating. I have curtains to make and wood to gather before it gets too hot outside. As I said in my profile, I am a University Student. I have an associates degree in Nursing, as well as one in Applied Science for Aircraft Electronics. [Fat lot of good that does me :) ] I am working on my Bachelors in Nursing by taking online classes. Photo shop elements is another great time grabber, digital scrap booking is much less messy than the old fashioned kind. I can work on it for 10 or 15 minutes whenever I want and walk away without leaving a mess on the table.
So the whole empty nest thing isn't for me at least, too much time on my hands, it is strictly emotional. If that's all it is, I should be able to handle this easy, right? Especially when my husband spoils me even more. He is making homemade pepperoni pizza for breakfast. The man is a wonderful cook. I am the luck one!
