I'm off tomorrow and have to go and renew my driver's license - YUCK the DMV! Oh well at least a license is good for 10 years here in South Carolina. So it'll be awhile before I have to go again. I'm looking forward to sleeping in a bit in the morning. These past few 5 AM mornings have been ruff!Normally I am an early morning person but the days have been LONG as well as early.

I'm a Mazda Miata!
You like to soak up the sun, but your tastes are down to earth. Everyone thinks you're cute. Life is a winding road, and you like to take the curves in stride. Let other people compete in the rat race - you're just here to enjoy the ride.
Take the Which Sports Car Are You? quiz.

This 6 acres has a very interesting owner built dwelling of sorts. A wonderful creek running through it and a SCHOOL BUS of miscellaneous "treasure". It's VERY "off the beaten path" BUT located on a paved road of sorts amongst a hunt club or two. No real close neighbors and quiet.
These are pictures of the 2 acres our friend's have for sale. We bought our 10 acres from them about 3 years ago. The two acres has all ready been set up for living with well, power, and septic. It also has a nice sized metal barn.

After I get done with those errands I'm going to come home and work on some projects, do laundry and clean up the house a little. Maybe catch a nap this afternoon.
It's 39*F here this morning so Spring is not quite here yet. It's going to be REALLY strange having daylight savings time starting on the 9th of March. It's always so hard to go to sleep when it's still so light outside at 9 PM.

I've been revisiting Deltec Homes and would still love to live in one but I'm torn as the cottage plans are so adorable and really all that we need. The Deltec home would be more stable in a hurricane type storm though. Perhaps I'll just start saving up the down payment to get them started on one and then go from there. We could always build the cottage as a place for company to stay. Thats the good thing about owning 10 acres... plenty of room to "play".
We have LOTS of garlic up in the garden so I will need to find plenty of ways to use it up - garlic pesto, stir fries, pasta dishes... I shouldn't have a problem. Scott also planted some sprouting potatoes and some peas so perhaps they will do well and we can do creamed peas and potatoes with Ham.... YUMMY! I'm thinking I woke up hungry this morning. Time for breakfast.

Scott took these wonderful pictures in our front yard. He said he was crouching to take them and when he went to get up he toppled over. He just sat there awhile and Greg came up and talked with him but did not ask why he was sitting on the ground - clueless! THEN Scott said a Cayce police car drove up and slowed down staring - I guess someone called thinking Scott was stumbling around outside drunk and called them. I'm looking forward to moving out in the country.

I finally completed 5 appliqué heart quilt blocks; one for me and one for each of the other 4 swap participants. I will use the blocks from this swap with other Valentine blocks I've received in a past swap to make a Valentine Sampler quilt. It will definitely be a one of a kind creation.

I cleaned the hall bathroom (Greg's bathroom) as it had reached DISGUSTING! Looks and smells tremendously better. Did a load of dishes and started another load of laundry. Folded about 4 baskets full of clothes that Scott had washed earlier in the week. Tomorrow I will be off as well and I plan to do some more cleaning and such after I get a little sleep. AH - work - clean- work- sleep.... I guess fun will slip in sometime.

It's a little chilly in the house this morning but the temp reads 54*F outside so it will most likely get warmer than that as the day progresses. I need to go shopping for some lighter weight shirts soon as I have mostly sweaters right now. I also need to make some things as I've bought fabric to make tops with as well. It may be the only way to get things to fit me properly anyway. Time to get the show on the road!

We've been getting some much needed rain the last couple of evenings but I fear it's not nearly enough to make up for the dry Summers that we have had the past couple years. I fear people are loosing sight of how things grow and are destroying Nature so badly that it will never recover. Without clean water and fresh air plants can not flourish and produce food that we all need. It's like people have lost site of the fact that THEY require water and fresh air too. Scary thought so early in the morning - what will happen when the water is all gone and we are all struggling to stay alive in a desert.
