FOR TODAY … 2 March 2009

Outside My Window… SNOW! WTH!? I heard the weatherman say WIND…not SNOW! Ugh. Lots of it too…3″ in one hour. Peeking out window…School bus crooked on the hill, looks like they’re putting on chains.

I am thinking… SNOW! Just yesterday I was out in the yard clipping a shrub/tree down so we can take it the dump. And repotting seedlings into bigger containers. SNOW! Chili sounds good for dinner. I’m still achy from helping to haul a 3′ piece of rail up a hill into the truck and then into the yard. SNOW!

I am thankful for… That I still have a job in this economy. And that my wee Saturn handles great in snow with just Mud & Snow tires.

From the kitchen… Last night was left over chicken. Not sure about tonight, but as I said above chili sounds good.

I am wearing… blue jeans, tennies, black turtleneck.

I am creating… Still hand stitching on my 10 blocks of a crazy quilt.

I am going… stop thinking about it snowing outside. And not laugh too loud about all the 4×4’s I saw spun around on the freeway…while I trudged along going 35 in white-out conditions.

I am reading… Still reading gardening books and Fons & Porter’s Quilts from the Henry Ford Musuem…that is an amazing book with amazing quilts.

I am hoping… That everyone that is looking for a job, finds one.

I am hearing… me typing…I guess the snow is slowing people down on getting to work on time.

Around the house… Clean house! 🙂 We added a lot of railroad items to the front yard that we found on Saturday.

One of my favorite things… working in the yard.

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

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

Some pictures of our daytrip on Saturday between Pyramid Lake and Wendell.

First picture is of the Needles…the colony closed them off a while back as people were starting to destroy the area. I’ve spent many of weekends and some nights at the hotsprings there. Stupid people always ruin it for all the responsible people.

Just pass the railroad tracks at the south end of the Smoke Creek Desert.

Another of the Needles at the north end of Pyramid Lake.


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.
