FOR TODAY … 30 June 2008

Outside My Window…More smoke from all the wildfires.

I am thinking…Sure am glad the a/c is finally working here at work…it’s going to be a hot day. Sorta sad my husband is not picking me up for lunch, but glad he’s taking my car for an oil change. Legislatures need to take a paycut and have no cost of living like the rest of us State Workers! OH! Tomorrow I get my name for the Simple Woman Summer Exchange! 🙂

I am thankful for… Still having a job with all the budget cuts that State of Nevada is going through. We will not be getting our Cost of Living, but we still have a job…it will be tough.

From the kitchen…Fresh picked spinach and romaine lettuce, tomatoes, red onion, avocados, and leftover bbq’d stuffed flank steak. Along with fresh whole wheat french bread, fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and basil out of the garden. Fresh brewed Sun Iced Tea.

I am wearing… brown and tan stripe sun dress and berks…was running late and forgot my rings and bracelet! :O

I am creating… a clean house! 🙂 Swept, mopped, vaccumed, and dusted!.

I am going… to go to lunch by myself. I see a couple of chicken soft tacos and a macho sized iced tea with lemon from Del Taco in my very near future

I am reading… just finished I am Morgan le Fay last night. Haven’t decided which book to read next. Probably an Addam’s Family book I picked up at our churches rummage sale. I love Charles Addams sense of humor.

I am hoping… that my husband wants to go up to Tahoe area for the Fourth to visit with his parents and sister…I love going up to TTT and haven’t this year, yet.

I am hearing… everyone coughing and sneezing from all the smoke in the air.

Around the house… there are two kitties…I’m not home at the moment, so they are either upstairs sleeping or Leo is chasing Max around.

One of my favorite things… Pumpkins. I love everything about pumpkins. The plant, the vines, the fruit, the pies, the pumpkin chili, the jack-o-lanterns!

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… I actually do not have any plans! Oh my! Guess I’m just going to WING IT this week! 🙂

Here is picture thought I am sharing…The sunrise this morning with God’s Rays!

  1. Loved your picture!
    I feel so bad for everyone with all those fires!
    I love punkins too… have you heard the quote:
    I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself than be crowded on a velvet cushion. 😉
    I don’t know who wrote it… just memorized it.

  2. LOL! I like that quote!

    And I did start reading the Addams Family book…it’s one that all about the tv show. Did you know that Grandmama (Blossom Rock) was Jennette MacDonald’s sister?! And Uncle Fester was The Kid with Charlie Chaplin?

  3. Great post and photo Michelle!! 🙂 I’m sorry about your forgotten bracelet! 😉 I hope your day is great even without it! 🙂 Hee!

  4. Hello! You are my Simple Woman Summer Swap Partner! I am so excited to be doing this with you! I am going to be looking over your blog to get some ideas for your gifts! Also we need to see what would be the best way to exchange address information for our packages. So nice to meet you!

    – Becky

  5. Your taco lunch sounds delicious! We have two cats from the animal shelter. They’re a lot of fun. I love pumpkins, too! Have a great week!
