For Today ~ 24 July 2009 ~ Simple Woman’s Daybook

FOR TODAY … 24 July 2009

Outside My Window… Construction…they have the stairs in and are laying the metal down for the 4th floor. Blue sky. Looks like it will be another hot day.

I am thinking… It’s Friday again. None too soon either. Been somewhat depressed this week. Wish my husband would find work. I need to shut/lock the office for 2 hours so people can’t get in…put the phones to voice mail…and purge files. This place needs a good cleaning. I’m tired of people waiting for the last minute to do things, especially when it comes to people getting a pay check, and then expect me to do it yesterday.

I am thankful for… my job (well not today I’m not), my family, my house.

From the kitchen… I have some Hungarian peppers in the garden that are almost stuffing size. More beets to pickle.

I am wearing… Dark brown crop pants, tan t-shirt, and Betulas.

I am creating… nothing.

I am going… work on my sister’s quilt. Really and truly. I’m going to just turn on my ceiling fan, shut the door, put on some music and sew.

I am reading… I haven’t been reading the last few nights…BBC America has Torchwood: Children of Earth on every night this week. I LOVE Torchwood. Which reminds me, Dr. Who is new this Sunday night ~ Dr. Who: Planet of the Dead.

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

I am hearing… Phone ringing, faculty pacing back and forth while talking on the phone, next door office, construction behind me, a/c just kicking on.

Around the house… My garden needs to be watered.

One of my favorite things… Quiet. No people around. I’m very content to be by myself most of the times.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… It’s Friday and the weekend is supposed to be in the 100’s…I’m going to hibernate and sew.

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

Dunluce Castle, Antrim County, Northern Ireland….the one place I want to go before I die.
