I Walk The Line & The Backyard

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep my eyes wide open all the time
I keep the ends out for the tie that binds
Because you're mine, I walk the line.

I find it very, very easy to be true
I find myself alone when each day is through
Yes, I'll admit that I'm a fool for you
Because you're mine, I walk the line.

As sure as night is dark and day is light
I keep you on my mind both day and night
And happiness I've known proves that it's right
Because you're mine, I walk the line.

You've got a way to keep me on your side
You give me cause for love that I can't hide
For you I know I'd even try to turn the tide
Because you're mine, I walk the line.

My favorite song.

And my new 'get off my ass theory' for 2009.
This is what I mean by a good walk around the 'backyard'....

It is a LONG walk around our 'backyard' (17 acres). I'm not lyin'.

Check me out having SO MUCH FUN.... exercising in bitter cold and all. Really!
See- I'm LOVING it......

No, really I am...

I can handle the snow. Believe it!
Look out 2009, I am a new woman!

P.S. ...I just decided that a 'Did It' per day was way too much- because I know I'd run out of fun 'Did Its' in a hurry at that rate. So how 'bout a 'Did It' per week (give or take) or so? Much better I say. So for this week's awesome 'Did It' from my '2 tears in a Bucket List'.......

#9- Take a pic of Samuel L. Jackson posing with my foot.

*Note: I was lucky enough to shoot a fundraiser 3 years in a row where Samuel was the main guest....the second year I actually brought above pic with me and asked Samuel to autograph it.... He said, "I don't know, if I sign this you might sell it on Ebay for $1,000 or something"(with a big grin)- and I was like, "Come on Samuel- Nobody is going to pay $1,000 for a picture of my damn foot".
So he signed it.

Wow, you go girl!! I am very envious of your 17 acres. I only have half of that. :-( Imagine all the sheep I could have if I had 17 acres. I wish I lived closer to you, maybe you would inspire me to go walking with you so I could shed my freshman 15(+). That's the trouble with going back to school late in life, you get that weight back even when you're a freshman for the 4th time...

You need a scarf!!! Banjo needs a coat and booties! Have Claire tell you how she made Stickley's vest - get a sewing machine and start learning!! You could have mine, but it's at least 32 years old, and last time I tried to use it, well, you know what happened (or didn't happen!)

Love you!

I am going to begin knitting tonight!! Haven't done that for a long time but I see the need. I agree with Mom L, you and D both need scraves and hats!!! I have Tayler's beginners knitting book I will send you. And yarn along with needles. That will keep your hands busy so you can't smoke. My favorite sewing machine is 38&1/2 years old. I had another for a short time and couldn't stand it. I have spent hours and hours cussing over this machine and if I could learn, you can too, I know it! Think of those poor dogs. By the way, Popeeno would love to have Banjo for a while. He is a little embarrassed not having a manly dog. Where are the pics of the newest member of the family?? The treadmill and what have you named it?? Can it be printed?
Love you,

Good night - I realize I forgot to comment on your song. Is it your favorite because Grandpa used to sing it to Gram?

And congratulations on your award from Claire.

Love you!
