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

FOR TODAY … 17 July 2009

Outside My Window… Big building going up…guys taking a lunch break. Blue sky, no clouds. Smoke plume from a fire just north of us. A construction worker riding a concrete zamboni on the second floor of the new building…I did not know they had those! What a GREAT JOB! Well…second it a real zamboni driver.

I am thinking… It’s Friday. I want to go home. Not many people here today. I’m going to go post more recipes over at The Pioneer Woman’s new site ~ Tasty Kitchen

I am thankful for… my job, my family, my house.

From the kitchen… Absolutely nothing for tonight. I made up a “what would be good to throw into the pan with the sliced up porkchops” last night. (BTW…I found ramen noodles, low-sodium soy, broccoli, red bell pepper, garlic, onion, and a jalapeno) I have a FREE Birthday entree coupon for both Chevy’s and Qdoba. So maybe Mexican tonight! And let them wash dishes!

I am wearing… Tan crop pants, purple cotton blouse, and my pink/blue/green/yellow plaid keds.

I am creating… a list of ideas for Christmas gifts this year. I think I will need to make a couple of batches of cold processed soap. I may make a little recipe book too. Will need to dry more herbs this weekend, me thinks.

I am going… turn around and watch the welders for a while.

I am reading… Finished Denis Leary’s Why We Suck…a Feel Good Guide to Staying Fat, Loud, Lazy and Stupid. Will pull something out of the stack of books next to my bed.

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

I am hearing… Construction workers back to work after lunch. The A/C kicking in.

Around the house… weeding that needs to be done.

One of my favorite things… time spent in the library.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… Sleep, go to a movie, sleep, water the garden, bowling.

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