FOR TODAY … 06 October 2008

Outside My Window…Sunshine and lots of it. It’s reflecting off of the pumpkin decorations hanging from the ceiling here at work. But this morning I had to SCRAPE my car windows for the first time! Oy!

I am thinking… If I didn’t have to pay California state taxes that I’d really like to live up in Sierra Valley. We had our first snow fall in the mountains Friday night! YEAH! I’m all a’twitter! I’m so excited October is here…it’s my favorite month.

I am thankful for… Cold nights and warm quilts. Rechargable camera batteries.

From the kitchen… – Lots of dirty dishes in the sink…I didn’t wash them yesterday as we went out driving and hiking. I have one more jam (well sorta jam) to make ~ roasted garlic and sweet red onions. Will go great with meats.

I am wearing… Jeans, soft tan 3/4 sleeved cotton shirt, and slip-on tennies..

I am creating… My Fall/Halloween exchange gift for my Secret Pumpkin Friend in one of my groups.

I am going… …have to go to Costco at lunch ~ work items. Then over to Best Buy to buy a cd for my husband’s upcoming birthday. Then over to Michael’s to look around.

I am reading… The Twilight series ~ just started the last book.

I am hoping… that a full-time job comes up within the next 2 weeks as my husband’s temp job will be over next week.

I am hearing… NPR News on my computer.

Around the house… Still cleaning the house, just sent off 5 bags of items I don’t use…matter of fact, some things that I didn’t even know I had! Guess I don’t need them. I think I’ll have lots more soon…cleaning out the clutter.

One of my favorite things… Sitting in the sun on a cool day listening to the creek.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… Keep working on the quilts. And google information on Round Robin Quilting…I’d like to start one in the new year.

Here is picture thought I’d share with you… I have 3 pictures from yesterday’s drive in Sierra Valley. They are from the Chilcoot and Loyalton (my favorite barn is between Loyalton and Sierraville) area.

I'm Michelle and live in Northern Nevada ~ beautiful mix of high desert and the Sierra. While I work at the University, I'd rather garden, cook, craft and make quilts. :)

  1. Hi! It looks like you had a wonderful trip. The barn is lovely. I love the pretty blue sky with puffy white clouds.

    I, too, am looking forward to colder weather. It’s not the season so much as it is the change that I love. It makes me feel like I’m moving forward as well.

  2. The sky was an incredible blue yesterday…the clouds were changing between extreme white to dark grey and back again.

    That’s the barn you painted!

    Love those pictures! Wish we had fall weather here in the panhandle. But NO, we have a few cool days, then several cold weeks (maybe 2) then it’s back to warm weather. And definitely no color changes…the trees are always green,….green, green and more green.

    By the way I post the picture of the “thistle” card on the Cafe for you.

  4. I really do feel bad for you down there! I love the change of colors here ~ I wish you could see the aspen groves up in the Sierra!

    it is going to snow here on wednesday, i dread the thought. oh well fall has got to be the most prettiest season of all. this year golds flooded the country side. great. i love the barn picture………….

  6. Hmm. I wonder why my barn pictures don’t come out as great as yours???

  7. LOL! I don’t know…do you love the barn as much as I love this one?! LOL!

    I’ve been taking it’s picture for many many many years now. I think she perks up whenever she sees me coming with my camera.

  8. I knew that was the barn I painted. The painting is right above my bed! She just looks lovely in the new photo.

    I think she does perk up everytime you see her!

    Sierra Valley is beautiful. My husband, who grew up in Loyalton, says it is the most beautiful place in the world. However, you are right to have reservations about moving to Sierra County and CA. I won’t bore you with all of the details of incompetent county government and failing infrastructures (Sierra County is the only county in CA not expecting any growth in the next 5 years.) Check out my blog for details. Next time you drive through, stop in Loyalton at Vicky’s Blue Moon Bakery for a great breakfast or lunch.
