Plant Lady - Unmasked!

Hello Everyone!

Katrina (SKY4KAT) has received the apple gourd birdhouse (see her blog, katscove)! She commented on how "mysterious and illusive" I have been throughout my short blogging career. Little did she know that I have been planning to "unmask" just like the mysterious "bird" in the birdbath. She, unknowingly, has "set the stage" for today's post. Perhaps this was all in God's Master Plan!

The blueberry season is winding down. The extremely hot, dry weather has taken its toll on our blueberry production this year. In previous posts, I have mentioned the extreme weather conditions we have been facing here in North Carolina - temperatures in excess of 95 degrees F and little rainfall have decreased the size and quality of the blueberries. We have decided to stop harvesting because we are unwilling to sell a product that is not up to standards.

Now, I should have more time to catch up on my neglected housework as well as to visit my blogger friends more often! I have a pile of clean, unfolded laundry in a chair in my living room. I have been "searching" the pile for about three or four weeks, selecting an outfit each day, consisting of a t-shirt and a pair of shorts, which is my usual summer attire! Did I mention the flip-flops, my footwear of choice? I can't imagine going through the summer with any other kind of shoe!

The BIG moment has now arrived! Drum roll, please! The unmasking of Plant Lady . . . a photo of my "early days" of pondering! Hope you enjoy!

Be Encouraged!
Plant Lady

How cute you are. Are you about 3? Still not unmasked but the intrigue is exciting.
We leave bright and early in the morning for our river trip. It is truly a beautiful, relaxing and my favorite river trip. It starts in Bluff Utah and the take out is clay Hills ~ about 80 miles and such beauty -truly Gods creation. I'll post some pictures when we get back next week.
Enjoy a more relaxed pace now that berry season has slowed/ stopped. what will occupy your time?
Blessings and thank you for such a beautifyl gift. My neighbor was down to visit this afternoon and loved the gourd---wants one of her own...
Love Katrina

Oh My Dear Friend,
There were times I wanted to ask more about you and your name, but somehow it was fun to have the mystery and the acceptance for you as you were. Your childhood picture is so cute and I'm sure you still must be, you attracted Mr. Plant Lady after all. :) :) Have a Blessed awesome day.
Thanks for always visiting my blog and your nice comments.
Love,
Lynn

I can tell that "little girl" is pondering and continues to do so. I do enjoy your "ponderings". Look forward to more unveiling. I use to do some decoupage and crossstich. I have pictures decoupaged of both my girls and myself when we were all about 3 or 4 years old. I just might have to take a picture of that and post it on my blog. I also crosstitched pictures of both my girls. While doing that I realized what parts of their faces resembled me and what parts resembled their dad. It was fun doing it. I lost the desire to do any of those things anymore.

It has been very hot here, but since I stay inside with the air I don't realize it until I venture out. I'm just not an outdoor person. We had a bad storm last night. A lot of rain and hail, lighting and thunder. Our cable went out but not our electricity. The cable was back on this morning.

Thanks for your visit. Come anytime.
Blessings,
AliceE
