For Today ~ 26 January 2009 ~ Simple Woman’s Daybook

FOR TODAY … 26 January 2009

Outside My Window… Grey sky…snowing. Looks like a bit of wind too as the snow is sorta horizontal. Construction workers so bundled up they look like Randy from The Christmas Story. Hope that they have on some woolies under all of that.

I am thinking… I want to garden. Wish I had a diet Mt. Dew. Or a cup of hot chocolate. I still have to book a flight for a student interview. What the heck is that noise that is coming from down the hall?!

I am thankful for… for my space heater under my desk…it’s keeping my tootsies nice and warm.

From the kitchen… Will be chicken tacos. Was honey/mustard/garlic marinade chicken with steamed broccoli.

I am wearing… blue jeans, tennies, and a black turtleneck and a necklace made by safarisister on etsy…we bartered, her lovely jewelry for my soaps.

I am creating… an afghan using a new crochet stitch I taught myself on Saturday…using the yarn I started making a scarf with…the one that could have wrapped up four necks. ROFL!

I am going… to bundle up real soon as I have to take some paper work down to Admissions & Records.

I am reading… Merle.

I am hoping… that I don’t wish a pox onto our Governor…it’s real tempting at the moment.

I am hearing… the air system…it sounds like the ceiling is getting ready for take-off.

Around the house… I cleaned outside in between the rain and snow storms. Put more mulch on top of the garden. Cleaned up after the birds out front…they are very messy eaters. And cleaned out the spent fall flowers.

One of my favorite things… my space heater.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… learn more crochet stitches. Plan my garden.

Here is a picture thought I’d share with you…

Flower Frogs I bought at an Estate Sale this Saturday for $2.25 ~

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.)

  1. What exactly is a flower frog?

    How does my husband keep me in Michigan? Two things: he is employed and the s.o.b. keeps me in love with him, even after almost 17 years together lol!

    BTW, I would happily barter jewerly for your soap :)!


  2. I love the flower frogs you bought…I like to collect them and just found out two years ago what a frog was…it would probably make me sick at the ones I passed up not knowing what they were.
    enjoy your blog

  3. Hey, just an update. I’m working on your mom’s socks. That yarn is wonderful! The green ones are done. And I added a little shamrock to each of them. Working on the red ones and I plan to add button hearts to them.
