real good mood



my morning glories are in a real good mood lately.  good for them i say.  my tomatoes are feeling pretty randy too.  in fact i need to freeze a bunch today or else there will be wasting, which i can't abide.  the picture is of the grape tomatoes mainly because they are growing right by the m. glories and i was too lazy to take a picture of the brandywines which are the real stars of the place.  man alive they are good.  i think i'm averaging a couple real big ones each day.  eating myself i mean.  i'm eating a lot of tomatoes.  i also grew some called german stripe i think.  they are fine but i won't grow them again because they are paupers compared to the b. wines princes.  which is not to say i like princes better than paupers.  in fact i'm definitely more of a pauper type so that was probably the wrong analogy.  and i'm probably boring you with garden talk at this point. 

let's see what else.  i just watched this video:



do you like?  i think i do but i can't decide.  maybe if you like it i will too or if you don't i won't.  such a follower...

and actually i watched half of another video but really way better (i hope diane doen't read this) which is from folk streams.  i highly recommend.  this particular vid and the site as a whole.  it's about the amish.  click amish to follow the link.  i know i don't have my links obvious and in a different colored text.  and i would so totally fix that right now except i need to get back into the studio because i'm doing a shop update this afternoon and i need to stop fecking around.

oh but do my a favor...leave a comment telling me a secret.  it doesn't have to be earth shattering or so totally private that i wouldn't want to know or may get grossed out or anything.  just a little something.  and i promise not to tell anyone.  and then i swear i will tell you some secrets next time.  don't ask why.  mostly because there isn't really a reason and i just thought of it right while i was typing.

looooooove,
liane

I kissed Cillian Byrne on the cheek when I was four, but told everybody he was lying about it.

I watch animal and baby videos when I feel sad. Can't help it.

My dog is very (terminally) sick. Not many people know because I don't do well with sympathy.

Anne said...

I've just starting and i'm feeling nervous, excited and mostly vulnerable about it... at this stage it's still a secret as i've only told a handful of friends about it...here it is :-)

Secret: I don't get over here nearly as much as I should. I am inspired with every visit.

Thanks for sharing the video. I lover her voice and the lyrics but hate the guitar.

Secret: I cried over a stupid Hilary Duff-Movie last week.

The Oak Leaves said...

Secret: I've never been in love. But I still have hope.

when i was little, i used to hike into the canyon behind our house and climb down to the stream. i would write words on tiny scraps of paper, put them in my mouth, chew them up, then spit them into the stream and try to follow them until i couldn't see them anymore. i still have no idea why i used to do that. i was homeschooled, maybe that was it. i almost decided to share about the time i touched a boy's neck when i was six, but i changed my mind. wow, sharing secrets is fun! i hope the spit part doesn't gross you out.

absolutely love your blog and it always makes me want to go out and buy some burlap. but not really.

i nearly left you a link to a diane cluck link when you mentioned josephine foster the other week! Try this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hFRgFZba-R0 the montage is naff but its a great track and the album (countless times) is a definite winner.

I hoard sparkly objects, mostly small rhinestone thingys that I can wear or put in my pocket. Methinks I am secretly a crow. And - I read your blog every day...:0)

we used to have a pig named oinky (that one day became pork chops, which I didn't know about until decades later but that's another story!), and once he got out of his pen and charged me. My mom had put me out on the deck because I was covered in flour... I was always into that kind of mischief. I survived the event... and he never really ran into me, just scared the heck out of me. That was kind more of a story than a secret, but it's just what came to mind.

i love folkstreams.net! peg leg sam is my favorite. i bought an album of his after watching his film.

all this tomato talk is making my mouth water. going to have baby heirlooms in my salad... mmm.

secret... my bride diet was mcdonalds fries and mcflurries, and cheap prosecco. for dinner. pretty much every night for 4 months. i'm a stress eater. i eat my feelings. and i am still paying for it a year and a half later. losing weight sucks big time.

My secret: although I dearly love my life and the people in it, I sometimes dream about spending a few months living completely by myself in a very remote and wild place. I would talk to the wind.

My other fantasy is to make myself a wardrobe of clothes that are completely sewn by hand.

My fortieth birthday was easy. Everyone made a big fuss and I was like "Can you believe I'm 40? Me either!" Forty-one is not looking so easy.

I have three secrets for you, the first two are high school related.
1. No secret: In high school my boy celeb crush was Billy Idol. Secret: I still tingle a little when I see pics of him from the 80's.

2. No secret: In high school my girl crush was Sheila E. *snort, cackle* Recently my husband and I were singing along to 80's music videos on You Tube and embarrassing the bejeezus out of our children, and so of course I had to watch a Sheila E video. Secret: He offhandedly said I looked like her in high school, and though I hid it well, I was so. freaking. thrilled.

And here's one from now. Shhhh...
Secret: Your blog is the only one I read everyday. I feel cosmically drawn to it. I don't know why. No secret: I just know whatever you post here or in your shop, I will love. It's like we're karmic style twins.

secret: i'm fascinated by abandoned shoes on the side of the road... what's their story? i sometimes think about creating a photo essay or coffee table book.

another: i now have a crush on mrs. c.
