FOR TODAY … 27 October 2008

Outside My Window… A clear sunny day with high clouds…going to almost hit 80F today. Construction workers. Students.

I am thinking… My head hurts…the sinus’ are killing me! Stupid blooming Rabbit bush ~ ACK!

I am thankful for… Benadryl and Mucinex.

From the kitchen… Will be a take-n-bake pizza as I have to make Turkey Pumpkin Chili for our potluck here at work tomorrow.

I am wearing…tan crop pants, berks, brown linen tank, a sweater, and hair in a ponytail.

I am creating… I’m finishing up the binding on the pinwheel quilt.

I am going… my mind hurts…not sure where I’m going or going to do. 😦

I am reading… I haven’t been reading the last few nights, been quilting.

I am hoping… that my husband can find another temp job as the one he’s had for the last 2 months ends this week.

I am hearing… my co-workers computer…she has Rob, Arnie and Dawn on. Phones ringing next door. People out in the hallway. The air-duct system on the roof is very loud.

Around the house… it’s clean. I cleaned yesterday. And rearranged the master bedroom/craft room.

One of my favorite things… a head that doesn’t hurt. Christmas music. Quilting. Scrub Jays telling me that I didn’t give them enough goobers. A moonless night with stars as far as the eye can see…boy that Milky Way was something on Saturday night!

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… more quilting. Not sure what I’ll do on Nevada Day this Friday…

Here is a picture thought I’d share with you…Pictures from our Saturday trip to Pyramid Lake and Black Rock Desert.

Taken on the way into Planet X Pottery ~ 🙂

The reason for my killer sinus’ ~

UPRR train, on old Western Pacific Rail tracks, going by Trego Hot Springs on it’s way to Gerlach and beyond…


The Simple Woman is the original home of The Simple Woman's Daybook.

The Simple Woman’s Daybook will take place each Monday.

Here’s how to take part:

1. Write up and publish your journal page using the questions/picture ideasI have listed below onto your blog. Be as descriptive as you can! This makes it more interesting to your readers. (You may cut and paste them for the purpose to participate in The Simple Woman’s Daybook.)

2. Copy the “permalink” from your “The Simple Woman’s Daybook” post, not the link to the front page of your blog. This will make it much easier for others to find instead of looking through the entire list of entries at your blog for your “daybook”. This will save time for all of us.

3. Come back here and add your permalink to Mister Linky.

  1. Ahhh! I remember Nevada Day. We dressed up as cow folks that day when I was in elementary school. I wonder if they still do that. I have no idea why we dressed up that day.

    I like the Dry Creek National Pothole sign. 😀

    For something that is giving you grief now, you sure took a pretty photo of the Rabbit bush. Maybe you should have used your super-dupper telephoto lens so you could stay away from it!

  2. LOL! It was being nice there…it was when I was hiking up to the petroglyphs that it attacked me.

    Kids can dress up for Halloween now instead of for Nevada Day. My most vivid memory was being on the 4-H float freezing my hiney off down in Carson for the parade.

  3. I’m sorry your sinuses are having tantrums! Stupid weeds.

    Up close, the quilt is even more gorgeous than I realized! Beautiful!! (Makes me wanna collect more 30s fabrics…)

  4. I would kill for the 80’s around here. We are all very excited that we will be seeing *60* on Friday lol!

    Love the quilt! Haven’t done that in years…been beading and making the world’s biggest crocheted blanket heehee.

    Hope your allergies clear up soon. We traded ours in for colds! Yippee!

    Penny \IiiI

  5. OMGosh, April! I wasn’t so sure about the 30’s fabrics, but I think I’m in love! I’m making that quilt to donate, but I just keep fondling it. LOL! Precious.

    I slept in until 6am this morning…head is feeling much better. Thankies all!

    Off to see if Penny has posted pictures of the “world’s biggest crocheted blanket”. 🙂

  6. LOL – girl that quilt is gorgeous!! WOW! Love the colors…if you still feel like you need to donate it, you can donate it to me. 🙂 Not the same idea huh?
