For Today ~ 2 March 09 ~ Simple Woman’s Daybook

FOR TODAY … 2 March 2009

Outside My Window… Cool, cloudy, morning rain…snow up in the mountains…exactly like last Monday!

I am thinking… I didn’t send my friend a birthday card! I since I don’t have internet access at home, I couldn’t send her an ecard too. 😦 Big sigh. Happy Belated Birthday, Sue!

I am thankful for… My job, family and friends, the promise of spring, more snow in the mountains.

From the kitchen… Probably left-overs from last night’s dinner…pork chops and rice.

I am wearing… blue jeans, tennies, grey fuzzie pull-over.

I am creating… Fancy hand stitching on my 10 blocks of a crazy quilt my mom & I are making.

I am going… stop by one of the crafts stores to check out more embroidery thread.

I am reading… gardening books and Fons & Porter’s
Quilts from the Henry Ford Musuem (thanks, April!)

I am hoping… Still have my fingers crossed for my husband and a job.

I am hearing… Construction trucks outside.

Around the house… repotting some seedlings into bigger pots, they’re outgrowing the little greenhouse starter box.

One of my favorite things… Hot tea on a rainy day.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… same as last week…quilting and wire wrapping/hammering.

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

Two of the crazy quilt blocks I’m working on.

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.

    You’re welcome, girlie! How do you like the book?

    Love those crazy quilts, just beautiful. I finally just got a book on making those that I’ve been eyeing (sp?) for sometime, since I’m fuzzy on some of the stitches and a design approach. It seemed to have the best recommendations, and sure enough, it’s a great book. I love that look.
