For Today ~ 8 April 2010 ~ Simple Woman’s Daybook

FOR TODAY … 8 April 2010

Outside My Window… Sunshine. Hoping it stays a while. Still a bit chilly in the mornings. People coming into work.

I am thinking… I have to finish the department budget module…but am having troubles. Big Sigh. I still can’t figure out why people drive so slow coming out of Sun Valley. 45 mph folks! Not 30! I need a cup of Green Tea with Jasmine.

I am thankful for… my friends.

From the kitchen… Artichokes and baked chicken.

I am wearing… Jeans, tennies, and a pumpkin orange cotton shirt, hair down.

I am creating… blocks for my niece’s lap quilt.

I am going… to go to Home Depot or Lowes at lunch to pick up the hardware for making my garden boxes. I’ve got the wood…THANKIES to my FIL. 🙂

I am reading… Thanks to April’s book list suggestion…I’m reading Miss Read’s Village School that is set in the 1950’s.

I am hoping… My constant wish ~ That everyone that is looking for a job, finds one. Adding one more onto the list…that my computer loan is accepted so I can buy myself a home computer.

I am hearing… ice machine, doors slamming, people out in the hallway, my office mate mumbling.

Around the house… My soon to be garden boxes!

One of my favorite things… Sunshine and warmer weather on a WEEKEND…not in the middle of the week when I’m at work.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… survive this week at work. Make garden boxes. Start more seeds inside. Prune the lilac bushes…I moved into a new house in January and just saw probably should cut off some dead stuffus from the lilacs. Start watering the plants. Plan a horse poo dump into the backyard for the garden.

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

Was watching Scooby-Doo after work yesterday…and I absolutely love this song…even after 30 years.

Dany Janssen’s Love the World Badada…badada…

    Don’t you just love warm weather and gardening. I am happy that you are getting your boxes built 🙂 I just spent all morning out in the dirt…ahhh lovely. Have a great weekend!

    This is just a guess, but I would probably drag my feet leaving a place called “Sun Valley” myself. 😉

    Hope you’re enjoying Miss Read. I need a cup of tea and a little cozy retreat into one of those stories. 🙂

    Somehow, I’m not sure a happy tune would be the first thing that would come to mind when being chased by a headless man. ;-P Gotta love Scooby Doo…

    Can’t wait to see your garden boxes! 🙂 I love seeing what you grow and then cook!

    Don’t worry, a sewing machine post is in the near future! 🙂
