For Today…23 June 2008 Simple Woman Daybook

FOR TODAY … 23 June 2008

Outside My Window…Smoke from a fire in eastern Nevada.

I am thinking…Stupid smoke! I can’t take my walk now! Can’t wait for our trip to Monterey Aquarium in July…miss the ocean. Hope there is no fires there.

I am thankful for…Having a roof over my head still…there were a lot of semi-homeless walking the alley this morning going through everyone’s recycle-bins.

From the kitchen…No food, just soy wax and fragrance oils from candle making last night for one of my summer swaps.

I am wearing…Tan cropped jeans, brown linen tank, berks! Geez…it’s that same thing I had on last Monday…only I have a pretty copper and raku glass bracelet on made by Clare, a fellow crafter in the Crafters' Cafe.

I am creating…Soy candles; photograph note cards; dirty feet.

I am going…clean out the shed for an upcoming yard sale.

I am reading…The Best Worst Halloween Ever by Barbara Robinson. Yes, I have a thing about children’s books.

I am hoping…that my husband can find a job that he likes and stick with it.

I am hearing…Atlantic Sound Factory on iTunes Radio ~ they’re playing Home Again by Dirty Vegas.

Around the house…there are boxes collecting items for a yard sale.

One of my favorite things…taking pictures of my plants, flowers and family. Pumpkin vines.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week:buy a flat of strawberries to try my hand at making jam.

Here is picture thought I am sharing…My niece, Hannah…I tricked her by saying I wasn’t taking her picture anymore, so she peeked out behind her hands.

  1. Yum, Homemade strawberry jam is the best! It’s not too bad to make either, strawberries, sugar and time.

    Your little bad hair robin is too sweet:)

  2. I’m thinking it’s regular jam…as I’d like it to last on the shelf a long time (ie: long enough to give as Christmas gifts!) 🙂

    Thank you for your kind words.

    You too Duchess! He is a cutie, eh?!
