Bleeding Hearts and Lettuce

No, not my heart. My heart is doing wonderfully! In fact I even RAN yesterday. Those who know me know I DON'T run! But I did and didn't even get winded! Granted I only ran 230 feet, from the paddock to the house and back. I HAD to get a picture of Rich on Joe's pony, but I promised him I would not post it on here. He was not happy I was taking his picture. But I am very happy that I was able to run and not get winded. Pre-surgery I could barely make it 50 feet before I had to quit.

But here is a picture of my bleeding heart. I didn't think it was going to come back as it did not do well last year. My mom split her's and gave me part of it. Last year it looked really sad, not this good at the end of the year. But it came back and is bigger already and doing great!

Here is a picture of my lettuce that is coming up. I am really the only one who eats salads (except TJ) and I didn't want to plant alot. Mom said you could plant it in a pot so I researched some on the internet and decided to give it a shot. I know it needs to be thinned, but if anyone has any suggestions they are welcome!

And baseball season started on Monday. We won our first game so that is a plus. We play on Mondays and Thursdays. T is going to umpire on Saturdays and maybe Tuesdays and Wednesdays. We are the Valley City Dick's Sporting Goods. Only 7th grade boys would find it so cool that they are the Valley City Dick's. They think its great to break it down before the game to shout Dick's. Here are pictures of T and Rich. I didn't go to Monday's game but I plan on going to Thursdays IF it doesn't rain. Its nice here now, but it is supposed to rain.

Nothing new in the quilting. Still working on the same projects. I am trying to finish all my projects before I start something else. Now wouldn't that be an idea? I doubt it will happen but I am going to try!

Right now I am reading Sense and Sensibility for my book club that the library started. Its kinda slow going and while I like the book it is definately not a favorite. Hopefully the book we chose for next month will be better. We are going to read all Jane Austen, but not one every month. Next month is members choice.

I'm off to quilt and read! We have NOTHING planned for tonight (except ride) and I am so glad!

Hi Sara,
I'm Becky from The Quilting Booklady. Thanks so much for your comment on my comfort reads post. I've read Gone With the Wind several times. You'd love it here in Atlanta. GWTW is big here. I see we started our blogs about the same time. I just finished Snow Flower. It's on my list to do a blog post. I'm adding your blog to my list on Google Reader. Wonderful making a new friend:)
