For Today ~ 1 July 2013 ~ A Simple Woman’s Daybook

FOR TODAY … 1 July 2013

Outside My Window… Blue sky with smoke haze, no clouds looking north, east and west. Going to be a blistering hot day today, probably will break ANOTHER high record. Little sparrows and finches on the bird feeder.

I am thinking… I really wonder what’s wrong with parents these days…why aren’t they instilling morals into those little brats of theirs? On a walk last night we caught five kids (ranging in age from 9-13) throwing good size rocks at a Red Tail Hawks nest that had two fledglings in it. I almost picked up a rock and flung it at them. But we gave them a good chewing out saying they are federally protected birds. The three younger ones cried, but the older ones kept looking up like they wanted to keep throwing. We stuck around until they left. I called Nevada Dept. of Wildlife to see if they made welfare checks. I was worried the older one came back to do some damage.

I am thankful for… for the a/c here at work. Supposed to be 106 today…another record high (like the last 3-4 days in a row).

From the kitchen… I’m thinking of making a pizza, if my herbs don’t wilt from the sun/heat.

I am wearing… Capris, olive green shirt, and sandals.

I am creating… right now I’m pulling out blue and green batiks from my stash. I signed up to take a quilting class as an early birthday present to myself.

I am going… to heat up my lunch soon…leftover Mediterranean turkey burgers.

I am reading… Nothing at the moment, book-wise.

I am hoping… The hawk fledglings are ok. Hate for them to be pushed out of the nest into the waiting hands of thug kids.

I am hearing… The a/c running! :)

Around the house… Cleaned…the house is cleaned.

One of my favorite things… pretty fabrics…and having some money to buy said pretty fabrics.

A Few Plans for the Rest of the Week… Dial in the batik fabrics to 7 for the quilt. Pay off the rest of my sewing machine (only $138 left to pay!). Figure where to go on the 4th.

Here is a few pictures thought I’d share with you…

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. :)

    I love reading your blog :)

  2. One of my favorite quilt tops EVER. :) And next time I’m out there, I want to swim in Pyramid!

    So sorry about your heat – hope it breaks soon! Triple digits is ridiculous. :o

  3. Thanks, Reva!

    April…It is a fun design, no? Pyramid’s water is cold in the fall and winter, so make it late June-September! This record breaking heat wave IS ridiculous…and it’s not even the hottest part of the summer yet!

    That quilt is beautiful – so very bright and cheerful!
    I do hope those birds are okay.
