Let's try this again

Entrance to September Oaks Winery, Ridgeland, SC. 

Ok, I'm off to the craft room. For what? I'm not sure. Bad case of the 'no inspiration' lately and I KNOW it's hiding in there somewhere, I just have to find it.

So tell me, is anyone else having this 'no inspiration'..'no gumption' attitude lately? Is it the heat? What is it?
Whatever it is, it needs to go away!
 Until the inspiration fairy visits and the 'no gumption' fairy goes away, I'll leave you with a few pics. Some are taken at the end of last year, but one in particular shows how I'm feeling right now...the last one!. :) ENJOY!

"Hot grass, hot grass, hot grass!"
This is how I feel..LAZY!
Till next time!

It started out good

And I was raring to go, and actually I did. I cleaned my bathroom, stripped the bed, washed the linens, put clean sheets on the bed, mopped the kitchen floor, vacuumed the whole house, cleaned the vacuum ...boy I was on a roll! Then..something happened. I don't know what, but SOMETHING happened. I ran out of steam.
That was all that I got accomplished today (besides the usual fixing dinner of course.

So I took a nap.

It didn't help.

But hey..I did get 'those' things done right?
So here I am, perusing the web tonight while I wait for sleep to find me (I think it's lost) and I run across this saying: 
“Eat a live frog every morning, and nothing worse will happen to you the rest of the day.” -Mark Twain 
here's the post that goes with it..It's a good post, read it. Enjoy. I think tomorrow I'll eat the frog first. :)

A Prediction

What with the recent 'Royal' wedding and 'news' (and trust me, I loved her dress) and the 'family' of Kate..I predict that there will be a huge rise in PIPPA as a choice of names for baby girls near the end of this year and into next ..
Of course..anyone could see that coming right? I love the name Pippa. First time I heard it was in a Stephen King movie (1999); Storm of the Century.  I loved it then..I love it now.

Just thought I'd throw that out there. :)

Today is a day to try and get creative and inspired in the craft room. It's been a long time coming and I really need to do SOMETHING in there.

What's on your Sunday plans??

The Meld

Ok, for two days solid I've taken time off from everything else and drowned myself into the world of 'the blog' tell you the truth, it's feeling more like 'the BOG' right now! WHEW! However, I'm nearly done.
Many of you know I had several blogs, some designed and dedicated for one purpose or another. ALL those blogs save for the grand babies have been melded into this one. Sagewood Farm now encompases the Hedgewife, Sage's Kitchen and The Garden Gate. There is a separate site for the babies, which you can find here:
Babes of Sagewood 
And you can see a link to that on the left as well.
I'm hoping to be able to hop back into blogging a little more often now that it doesn't seem so daunting a task. :) Thanks for all the patience and waiting for postings. I'm still here..glad your hanging with me!

things have been crazy here at the farm, garden, vacation, visitors and you name it. I have not taken the time to post, and that's ok. A blog is a personal thing and well, personally I wasn't up to blogging. HOWEVER, I'm into revamping and such so look for changes soon. :) Till then, just hang in and hang out. We'll see what comes of this transformation.
