Spring Fever.

Well the potting soil has just arrived in the stores and there are no plants for sale yet, but I couldn't wait to get my seeds started! Since I have no official garden this year I'm going to have to try my green thumb skills with a potted garden. As a start, I made four pots with two different combos of herbs and flowers. Hopefully by mid-summer I will have some blooms and be able to snip some fresh sprigs for cooking! Two larger pots have zinnias, basil and alyssum. The hanging pots have nasturtiums, moss roses and parsley. I know I totally overcrowded the pots but I am planning on dabbling in some major thinning once everything starts growing. Will probably have to transplant some of them to a fifth pot! The more the merrier! Here's a couple snapshots of what's beginning to come up...we still have a long way to go!

Plus look at my sweet new gardening gloves from my bestie Mal!!

Inauguration Day.

Yay, my first post! This blog for me serves a few purposes. One, to document the things I learn in my new job in the TV biz and my new life in Lima (like the bean), Ohio. Two, to help me keep in touch and share these stories with my friends and family back home in Minnesota and anyone else who wants to listen. :) Finally, I want to remember all this stuff that happens to me...I can't do that on my own!

So I started my new job at WLIO TV a few weeks ago and things are going great. Here's my website photo below... You can see more about the station at and even watch rebroadcasts of the shows. I do the weather at 6pm and 11pm on the weekends and I report three days during the week. So far so good!

Yesterday I had my first live shot, reporting on a memorial service for a horrible and tragic fire bombing that happened ten years ago and killed a young woman and her four children. I was so nervous, especially because it was a hard topic to report on, a very sad story.
I am very excited to report more on a variety of stories and my favorite, of course, telling the weather story on the weekend!
