For Today ~ 17 April 2009 ~ Simple Woman’s Daybook

FOR TODAY … 17 April 2009

Outside My Window… Beautiful sunny warmer day…students out and about, construction workers out back, Ground’s dude working on a water pipe.

I am thinking… I’m going to take a well day on Monday. It’s supposed to be 80F! It’s been a busy week and my head hurts. I want to work in the yard.

I am thankful for… my job, even though it’s been stressful.

From the kitchen… Not really sure. Maybe some broccoli soup and bbq chicken? Maybe El Pollo Loco. Maybe BLT’s. Maybe I’ll sneak in the backdoor and bypass the kitchen altogether and crawl into bed.

I am wearing… Blue jeans, thin cotton 3/4 sleaved tshirt with 60’s print, tennis shoes, hair pulled back into a ponytail.

I am creating… I really need to start back up on the crazy quilt. My mom is waiting for my last four blocks.

I am going… to work in the yard this weekend. On Sunday we’re going to the Reno Aces ball game. It’s a day game and they still had tickets.

I am reading… the Secret Life of Bees at night…also just received the new Hobby Farm magazine.

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

I am hearing… the HVAC system up on the roof. Voices from the next office over. My head hurting.

Around the house… a sink full of dishes to be washed. Am hoping my husband will do them.

One of my favorite things… Picinc lunch in the park with family. Thanks for the sandwich, Mom!

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… Work in the yard, work at work, sleep, eat, sleep.

Here is a picture thought I’d share with you… Isn’t this a cute quilt? It’s called Pecking Order by Janet Locey using Rise & Shine fabric.

  1. That’s an adorable quilt!

    Hmmm….wonder if something like that could be crocheted…may have to think on that.

  2. It is sunny here today too! 🙂 I love it! How are you liking the Secret Life of Bees? I read the book a few years ago. Are you interested in seeing the movie?
