FOR TODAY … 03 November 2008

Outside My Window… Stormy grey sky ~ snow in the mountains ~ breezy. All of the pretty fall leaves in a heap around the base of the trees. Another fast moving winter storm moving in.

I am thinking… Holy Moly! It’s November already! I’m sorta sad because no Trick-O-Treaters came to my house on Halloween. It’s just not like when I was a kid. Big sigh. I’d rather stay home this week and quilt. We need a new (used) truck…the Chevy is on it’s last cylinder. Wonder if I planted a quarter a money tree would grow? Wonder if anyone will let Chopper in today (German Shepherd across the street)…I took him a blanket to lay on last night since it looked like no one was home…he’s such a sweet boy.

I am thankful for… my family.

From the kitchen… I have pork chops defrosting in the frig. Have absolutely no clue what I’m going to do with them though.

I am wearing… blue jeans, tennies and a warm grey pullover top.

I am creating… a crazy quilt with my mom…each are making 10 blocks.

I am going… to finish organizing my fabric stash.

I am reading… I picked up a few Lynn Kurland books that I haven’t read at the local Goodwill store. Star of the Morning, Much Ado in the Moonlight, and Dreams of Stardust. I’m not much into romance books, but dang I love her books.

I am hoping… still hoping that there is some job out there for my husband.

I am hearing… NPR new on my computer, humming of the air system on the roof. Me typing. Pretty quiet all in all.

Around the house… 10 paper grocery bags full of donations to go to St. Vincent’s Thirft Shop. I’ve more to go too…been cleaning and downsizing.

One of my favorite things… watching all the leaves blow by. Friday (Nevada Day and Halloween) I was out and about getting errands done before I sat down to carve the pumpkins and it was a warm stormy day…leaves blowing, dark clouds gathering…Something Wicked This Way Comes! Kept thinking of Macbeth…Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and caldron bubble.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… more quilting and cleaning.

Here is a picture thought I’d share with you…Leo-Monster discovered he LOVES pumpkin guts. Yummie! More MOM!
