FOR TODAY … 2 July 2009
Outside My Window… Blue sky with clouds…possible rain later? New buildings behind me going up faster and faster! I heard they are 3 months ahead of schedule.
I am thinking… I’ll have to move into the conference room soon if they are 3 months ahead of schedule. My office will be punched through soon. I’ve lots of work to do before the holiday.
I am thankful for… my job, my family, my house.
From the kitchen… I’m thinking of going out tonight! Soon I’ll be canning though. I’ve beets that are READY for pickling! These are the type I planted the first of May.
I am wearing… Cropped pants, sage green top, betula’s and my hair up in a ponytail.
I am creating… crotcheted cotton wash cloths…too tired after work to finish my sister’s quilt. Maybe this weekend I’ll get back to it.
I am going… to go to lunch with my mom. Pickle and can some beets. Hopefully go to the lake (Pyramid, not Tahoe) this weekend. Maybe go up to Virginia City if they’re having a 4th of July parade (silly me…they have parades for every holiday, me thinks).
I am reading… Denis Leary’s Why We Suck…a Feel Good Guide to Staying Fat, Loud, Lazy and Stupid. 🙂 Still snorting, chortling, and outright belly laughing. I know he’s at least 10 years older than me…but we definitely grew up with the same type of parenting. 🙂
I am hoping… My constant wish ~ That everyone that is looking for a job, finds one.
I am hearing… HVAC up on the roof, the office next door, the clanging of the building going up, beeping of the tonkas, me typing, phone ringing, head pounding.
Around the house… Bed sheets need to be washed, garden needs to be watered, beets need to be pulled, new seeds planted.
One of my favorite things… watching the bees on the lavender. Have you ever just sat and watch bees do their work? I’d love to know where their hive is. Lavender honey…sounds yummy, no?
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… canning, eating, watch fireworks, swimming, sleeping, take pictures.
Here is a picture thought I’d share with you… the sticky thing said they’re Yellow Pickle Peppers. Have no clue what those are, but I like the sound of them. 🙂
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.
