FOR TODAY … 18 January 2011~

Outside My Window… people driving to work, high clouds, geese flying by…gonna be another BEAUTIFUL SPRING DAY in January!

I am thinking… I’m not! Rut-roh.

I am thankful for… Mom Nature’s 3 days of Spring…probably gearing us up for an upcoming blizzard, but I’ll take it! :)

From the kitchen… I just made broiled chicken breasts with white rice and steamed broccoli last night…not sure about tonight.

I am wearing… Jeans, tennies, blue TSHIRT, hair in ponytail.

I am creating… a pinwheel quilt. Lots and lots of bloody pinwheels…WHAAHAHAHAHA! Still feel that way about those pinwheels, but I finished them. Here’s what it looks like up on the design wall. Still have to figure out the borders.

Pinwheel Layout

I am going… have to call Progressive, we took that piece of shit Ford Thunderbird to Pick-n-Pull on Sunday (I’m sure it was a very good car in 1984)…now we have to invest that money into the Chevy pickup so it will go another year or so. Hopefully then we can look at something newer.

I am reading… quilting and fabric magazines.

I am hoping… that the Governor really doesn’t make us take a 5% pay cut…it took me a long time to get to where I’m at now. I don’t mind the 4.6% Furloughs that we’ve been taking for the last year….on top of no COLA (last 3 years), no merit (last 2.5 years), no steps (last 2.5 years), doing the work of two people (last 2 years), higher insurance, less benefits…just leave my salary where it’s at.

I am hearing… cars and birds.

Around the house… House still pretty clean…still amazed at that new vacuum cleaner. Is my house really that dirty? Or is it two cats and me?

One of my favorite things… Odwalla Superfood Juice! Sometimes I add a bit of protein powder to it. Yummy and good for you!

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… piece my quilt top, watch a few movies, take some long walks.

Here is a picture thought I’d share with you…

Washoe Valley ~ Slide Mountain…taken on last Saturday’s hike up Deadman’s Creek trail. Washoe Lake was partially frozen…as was parts of the trail.

  1. Girlie, a governor who ran on a platform of no increased taxes is pretty stinky for letting the state employees shoulder the burden of his campaign promise. I sure hope that doesn’t happen!

    I love Odwalla too… never thought of protein powder!

    NOOO!!!!!!ACK!!!!!! P-P-PINWHEELS! My eyes! My eyes!
    *sigh*
