FOR TODAY … 19 October 2010

Outside My Window… It’s pretty dark out. Godzilla could be out there and I’d not know it…well…ok, I’d know that Godzilla was out there.

I am thinking… Why are we having a 1 pm game in San Francisco?! What’s wrong with 4 or 5 pm? Is that too late for you all back east to stay up?! Am extremely grateful that the Marlins didn’t want Cody Ross anymore and that we were selfish in not wanting the Padres to have him! I’d definitely vote him MVP of the series with Philly!

What a jackass! “Baltimore Ravens LB Ray Lewis was pretty steamed about their overtime loss to the Patriots Sunday, and he made it clear that he and his fellow teammates plan to take it out on the Bills this Sunday.” ~ Oh! That’s a big man! Pick on my Bills who are 0-5! Idiot. May Buffalo WIN THEIR FIRST GAME OF THE SEASON AGAINST YOU! HA!

I am thankful for… for my friend, April. I wish you lived closer.

From the kitchen… Leftover homemade beef stew…with maters, taters, onions, celery, parsnips and carrots.

I am wearing… Jeans, tennies, brown t-shirt, hair in a ponytail.

I am creating… I finished the flannel lap quilt that will be donated. It’s soooo warm and fuzzy.

I think I may try this quilt next, from Cluck.Cluck.Sew. I have a jelly roll of Lila Tueller’s EDEN just waiting to be made into a quilt! :)

I am going… to turn on the space heater under my desk…just got some goose bumps on my arms!

I am reading… I finished Coop: A Family, a Farm, and the Pursuit of One Good Egg by Michael Perry. I LOVED THAT BOOK! Am going to stop by Sundance Book Store on the way home and check to see if they have any more of his books.

I am hoping… that ORANGE & BLACK rules throughout OCTOBER! GO GIANTS!

I am hearing… Always the same…ice machine, hvac, doors slamming, phones ringing.

Around the house… laundry needs to be done. I actually threw all my clothes down the basement stairs this morning.

One of my favorite things… my alone time.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… to just get through the week. :)

Here is a picture thought I’d share with you… a picture I took on Sunday while roaming around the Ferrari Farm.

Ferrari Farm Barn, Reno, Nevada

    That is just the perfect quilt for autumn… well done!! So cozy.

    BTW, most Eastcoasters are still at work at 4pm too LOL! I’ll betcha anything this was a TV programming issue. But a weekday play-off game… definitely unusual. And *clearing throat* GO GIANTS!!!!!!!!!!

    Miss you girlie… Think of all the fun we would have, going to tons of baseball games, buying out quilt shops, driving all over tarnation… Well come to think now, I don’t believe I can afford to live near you. ;-P Let’s keeping trying for that lottery LOL!

    P.S. The paler areas on the quilt remind me of butterscotch. :D

    Toes and eyes, baby!

  4. Mom says:

    I see Cousin Bob’s Sambo’s mug, Aunt Hazel’s oil lamp and your GreatGrandma iron on the shelf behind your beautiful quilt. Me thinks you should have lived two generations ago.
