not a stalker...I promise!

not a stalker..., originally uploaded by pilgrimgirl.

I've been following the "Path to Freedom" urban homesteading blog for quite some time. I admire these folks' gardening skills and their determination to live lightly on the land (and the grid).

So when I had a chance to stop by their property today (kudos to K!), I was eager to see it for myself. Of course I didn't have any intention of knocking on their door or bothering them. Just thought I'd peek over the fence.

Well, the best of intentions went awry when they were all out in their yard chatting with someone and there I was, standing like a big dork at their gate, ogling their spectacular garden. Embarrassing.

I tried to act nonchalant as I snapped this pic, but really I felt like a big heel trespassing in their private space.

Oh, come on. They have a sign out front! That's like an invitation to stop and snap a picture.
Don't feel bad.

I bet they were flattered!
what a lovely home, what a beautiful lifestyle

"Is... Is that pilgrimsteps?!"

"Dude, don't look, you might spook her."

Next time I'll wear a hat and sunglasses so they won't know a rockstar blogger is scoping out their house. :)

You are many things, Jana, but a big dork? Nah!

jana said...

Oh, I _am_ a huge dork. The word dork was pretty much invented just for me.

They have a blog? I didn't know! They are completely my heroes. I can't wait until I can do the same with my yard. :)
