I do believe my first gourd is dry and ready for crafting .. actually, I have some smaller ones which I will practice on and hopefully by then I will have decided what to do with this one.  I am so undecided!  This is a tough decision and I think I am hesitating since I never did this before and I don’t want to do it wrong.  I don’t want to make a birdhouse and I might woodburn on it or carve a design …… or paint something –

gourds-ready

I am sure after doing several dozen gourds I will jump right in and design away!  I did join the American Gourd Society so I am sure I will find inspiration there!  Speaking of inspiration……GRIT magazine once again rocks my world.  I should have my latest blog post up this week and it focuses on my Garden Reflections for 2008.  And guess what … they told me that they are featuring my blog in the next issue (Jan/Feb) – the actual magazine!!  Of course, I am sending Christmas subscriptions to family.  If you get the issue I will autograph it for you …. nooo problem!  The magazine is a great help for us in planning to move to the country and I have to admit although I “think” I am country tough, I still have this mice phobia.  I have dealt with plenty of mice since we live somewhat in the country and especially last year we had a large area of ground revamped and the mice thought my home was their new home!  So for several months I waged the Mice War and I think I won.  This past weekend I came upon two mice in a bucket in the barn down south – one was a goner, so obviously they couldn’t climb out of the bucket.  So ingenious me takes them down to the pond so the dogs don’t find them and I tossed them out of the bucket.  The one lively little mouse swam FAST to shore and it seemed like he was after me!  He was going for my leg and all I could think of was he was going to climb up my pant leg!  Freak out!  I ran backwards trying to get away and after a few feet he found a hole and was gone.  OMG ..  can you image if he had got me!
