For Today ~ 7 December 2010 ~ Simple Woman’s Daybook

FOR TODAY … 7 December 2010

Outside My Window… Hee! I HAVE A WINDOW TO LOOK OUT NOW! Cars driving along McCarran. An area under a newly planted tree where I’m going to put a bird feeder. 🙂

I am thinking… How the heck did I move such a big office into a 10×10 office and a 8×10 cubicle?!

I am thankful for… Uniteds States military (for that matter…all of our allies, too!). My friends. Kitty hugs.

From the kitchen… Carnitas tacos for tonight!

I am wearing… Jeans, tennies, warm cozy waffle henley, hair up in pony-tail.

I am creating… I’ve dragged my beads up from the basement and have been learning the flat spiral stitch. Donna (from my ebay crafting group) has posted a tutorial for us all to try. I’ll link you to her blog, This Year’s Dozen.

I am going… finish putting away my office…it’s a mess.

I am reading… Nothing at the moment.

I am hoping… a lot of people show up with homemade cookies for tomorrows cookie exchange.

I am hearing… NO LIQUID NITROGEN TANKS! Hee! Just cars driving by.

Around the house… I put up my small Christmas tree…it’s about 4′ tall. Next year? I’m going to pay the $10 for a USFS tree permit and go cut my own down.

One of my favorite things… the feel of 11/0 seed beads running through my fingers.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… Bead. Cookie Exchange. Make fudge.

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

Two eagles at the SF Zoo…both had broken wings and can not fly anymore. The American Bald was not a happy camper. Sierra, the Golden, she has a beautiful soul.

    Really, do bald eagles EVER look happy?? Gosh, they are beautiful birds!

    That beading project is just beautiful. I might have to dust off some beads, and um, invest in some more myself! 😀

    You are just moving right along with those bracelets. I hope to try that sometime in the near future.

    Hey Auntie Michelle! It’s Hannah! I love the bracelets you are making… Even the green and red one with silver. I’m excited about the Art Museum tomorrow. 😀 I’m actually not sure what we are going to see. Can you tell me?
    Grandma took me out to see “Yogi Bear the Movie”. It was really funny, the turtle as so adorable. She took me tom the movies after Sheep Dip practice. This is the first time in a loooooonnnggg time that Nathan didn’t see a movie BEFORE me… :p to him. On Saturday, Grandma took me out to the mall and at Macys, we found an aqua blue and dark blue dress that I loved. The Nutcracker was that night at the U.N.R. so, Grandma bought me the dress and a pair of black, short heeled, buckled shoes. I think she’s really happy that she is back where she belongs, Nevada… The last couple of weeks, she was gone in Europe. ( If anybody didn’t know why I said that she’s happy that she is back in Nevada, that was because you may not know that… )
