For Today ~ 13 June 2011 ~ Simple Woman’s Daybook

FOR TODAY … 13 June 2011.

Outside My Window… Train going by on a northern spur, cars, birdies on the thistle sock, construction guys taking a front loader somewhere on campus.

I am thinking… I’m hungry. Pooh Bear tummy thing going on. 🙂 My wrist hurts! Wonder if it’s from playing Avalon Legends Solitaire too much. I wish short sales didn’t take so long to process.

I am thankful for… a roof over my head, even if I’d like to torch the one I’m currently under…don’t worry, I won’t. But I can’t promise what my husband would do.

From the kitchen…  Last night I made up a chicken and rice dish. I marinated the chicken in: seasoned rice vinegar, sodium-lite soy, garlic, serrano pepper, peanut butter, ground ginger, ginger lemon honey and some olive oil. (it’s what I could find in the frig and pantry!) Some Jasmine rice. Broccoli. Dumped the chicken and marinade into a pan and cooked it…put the whole thing over the rice.

I am wearing… jeans, tennies, short-sleeved blue shirt, hair in pony-tail.

I am creating… a Camille Roskelley quilt ~ Ric Rac in a Jiffy!

I have 60 half circles cut out…16 all sewn together. I’m using Riley Blake, Doodlebug Design’s FEELING GROOVY fabric…it’s SO CUTE!

I am going… to go to the Nevada Museum of Art this weekend…To Live Forever, Egyptian Treasures from the Brooklyn Museum opened up over the weekend.

I am reading… going to start a Tina Fey book.

I am hoping… not hoping, am praying…for patience, peace, more patience, and a puppy.

I am hearing… me coughing. I really dislike post-nasal drip.

Around the house… Leo is a sad kitty. He wants a new house with a fenced lawn too.

One of my favorite things… gardening…and I don’t get to do much of it where we’re at now. I have 5 tomatoes in pots, and four pepper plants too. I guess the good thing is I don’t have many weeds. 🙂

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… work on the ric-rac quilt, try to wait patiently for ps i quilt to get her quilt a-long up and running.

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

14 1/2 pints of jam I made up ~ strawberry & rhubarb, and strawberry, raspberry & mango! The berries and rhubarb were fresh from the farmers market…mangos, bag of frozen ones. LOL!

  1. I want a puppy, too. We talk about getting a beagle sometimes and briefly thought about a Hungarian vizsla, but beagles are stubborn and viszlas would wear us out with their exercise needs. Then there’s what to do with them when you travel overseas, the doggy smell and the fact that they don’t pick up their own poop. So no puppy for us anytime soon.

    Love the ric rac quilt design.

  2. That quilt is absolutely adorable… perfect fabrics for a pattern like that!

    Okay, so here’s what you do. Someone in the house takes up smoking. Then “accidentally” falls asleep with the lit cigarette. No litigation, no awkward arson charges. Naturally, kitties and all valuables have been removed to a safe location ahead of time. ;p Also, with an older home, you could try to land a firecracker on the roof on July 4th. (You don’t even want to know how I came up with these ideas.)
