For Today ~ 6 April 2009 ~ Simple Woman’s Daybook

FOR TODAY … 6 April 2009

Outside My Window… Very cool morning, but sunny and no clouds. At home…jays and starlings after the goobers, cold daffies drooping. Here at work…construction workers.

I am thinking… Wonder if they’d know I’m not here at work if I decide to go home! 🙂 I want one more hour of sleep and then I want to play in my yard. It’s supposed to be 69F today! I think it totally sucks that the Reno Aces (new AAA Arizona Diamondbacks baseball team) only had 200 tickets to sell to all us that can’t afford season tickets or aren’t the casinos. They sold out in less than 45 minutes for Opening Day. At least I got some good seats for the 4th of July. It is Monday, right? Wonder why no one is next door here at work? I thought they all started at 7am…it’s almost 8!

I am thankful for… for the two good neighbors we do have.

From the kitchen… HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I spent the weekend in the yard and I’m out of milk, eggs, bread, fruit…lunch will be eaten out today. Will have to go to the grocery store after picking up some lawn chairs from my mom’s house.

I am wearing… Blue jeans, Betulas with painted toe nails (from Del Sol…the kind that changes colors when the sun hits it! So cool!), and a cotton multicolored stripe shirt with 3/4 sleeves and a scoop collar, hair up in a ponytail.

I am creating… I made a hemp necklace on Friday night…that’s about all the creating I did. I played in my yard over the weekend.

I am going… go grocery shopping after work. Maybe see if there are any steaks on sale to bbq tonight.

I am reading… the Secret Life of Bees…I picked it up at our local Goodwill. Still haven’t seen the movie.

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

I am hearing… Robert Earl Keen on my Lyle Lovett Pandora Radio Station (so far I have 6 stations ~ Lyle Lovett, Enya, Bon Jovi, Coldplay, ACDC, Janis Joplin). If you haven’t tried it yet…it’s a free online station that you just put in a favorite band and they will pick related artists that match your choice.

Around the house… laundry, grocery shopping, more weeding, pay bills.

One of my favorite things… Visiting with neighbors after working in the yard…kick back, drink a beer, and just talk & laugh.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… Update my ipod’s music selection. Mail off my Spring Exchange.

Here is a picture thought I’d share with you… I’m actually going to share a Lyle Lovett song ~ This Old Porch.
