FLOWER PORN that is! It's all I can think about, in between the "beatings" my tummy is getting from the wee one in there! I think he's practicing his left hook on my bladder! :)

I have been pouring over the porn that has been coming int he mail for the past few weeks, dreaming and planning what I am going to do with my garden this year, although I am not actually sure how much will get accomplished before or after the little one gets here. A girl can still dream though, right?

I decided to make some pretty little envelopes to share my seeds with my gardening friends. I used some pretty papers, vintage lace and buttons. Inside is filled with Lupine and Morning Glory seeds, which I have plenty of.

Ahhhhh! I can almost smell that wet, earthy smell that you get early in the Spring just before the crocus start to pop up in the garden and all over the lawn.

What plans do you have for your gardens this year?

I'm a weirdo!

Since I haven't been around in awhile I haven't been tagged by anyone for games but I saw on Penny's blog that she left her tagging open to anyone who wanted to play. I'm up for a game, I haven't played in a long time! :)

This one is "The Seven Weird Facts About Me" game:

First, the instructions:1. Once you are tagged, link back to the person that tagged you. 2. Post these rules on your blog. 3. List seven random and/or weird facts about yourself. 4. Tag seven random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs. 5. Let each person know that they have been tagged by posting a comment on their blog.

Weeee sounds like fun! I don't think I've shared these facts yet.

1. I was a competitive bodybuilder and fitness model for quite a few years.

2. I've moved 38 times in my 39 years! Not a military family, just moved alot. I've lived in VT., WA., AZ., MA., and now PA.

3. I have this thing for horror flicks, love 'em! Don't know why 'cause I'm scared of everything else!

4. One of my life's missions is to find the perfect pen! Haven't found it yet, although fountain pens come pretty close.

5. I am a horrible knuckle cracker! Could never break the habit!

6. I held the 100m high hurdle record in my high school for 10 years after I left.

7. I hate talking on the phone, I used to be petrified to call people! It's gotten better, but I still avoid as much as possible.

I don't know if those facts were weird but it's all I could think of on the spot. I'll probably come up with better ones as soon as I hit publish post.

I think I'll be breaking the rules since I don't know how many of you have already done this, don't want overkill now do we. I'll leave it up to you if you want to play.

*muah* Michelle "the Weirdo"

p.s #8 should be that I have a really long tongue!

Happy Valentine's Day to all my blogging friends and family. I thought I'd share my little "Note From the Universe" I received in my email this morning:

Love where you've been.

Love where you're at.

Love how you think.

Love the power you pack.

Love all that you seek.

Love all that you feel.

Love your rocking emotions and the thoughts you make real.

Words never rang truer.

Love to everyone!

12 OF 12 February

I am not even going to say I am going to get here on a regular basis anymore! I prove myself a liar each time.

I am lucky today because I got to play hookey from work because of the bad storm we got here starting yesterday afternoon around 1:00, it's still nasty but has turned into rain.

Yesterday was 12 OF 12, remember 12 OF 12 is the brain child of Chad Darnell , you take 12 pictures on the 12th day of the month and then you post and share with other people from all over the World. If you haven't been to his blog yet go take a peek, it's so much fun! Since I haven't posted my pics for the last couple of months I thought I should get back here and post them up.

Once again THANK YOU to all my friends that have posted in my abscense.

Here's my 12's

7:00 First up: Me on the way to work
7:10 The sun coming up over the snow covered hills

7:15 Had to stop and get some gas

7:28 The temp on the local clock 7:30 Main Street in my little town 11:30 Work is monotonous so I posted on my thread at another website

1:10 This is exciting; we have a pair of bald eagles that started to nest near the river, I had been watchign for them everyday and yesterday was the first day I saw one of them! My camera wouldn't zoom in too far so this was the best I could get
1:15 This is as close as I could zoom in, plus we were having a snow storm
3:00 When I got home there were about 5 pairs of cardinals at our feeders getting prepared for the nasty storm. I just LOVE cardinals 3:30 Then I sat down to relax with my "bubba" Winston at my side 3:32 Marley was relaxin' in the chair 4:30 My first belly picture, I am just over 5 months. I took it myself so it's not great and please excuse the "lived in" look in the background, housecleaning has not been on my priorities lately!

So there they are, and here I am! I am not making promises but I miss being around here and visiting! Blogland moves fast and if you are gone for awhile you miss out on so much!

Thanks for looking at my 12's this month.
