For Today ~ 21 June 2011 ~ Simple Woman’s Daybook

FOR TODAY … 21 June 2011.

Outside My Window… Robins pulling worms out of the lawn. Sun setting. Someone walking by with a grocery cart fully of bottles in a trash bag.

I am thinking… I’m not ready for 96F! Why can’t we have a summer of 80F????

I am thankful for… Friends and family…and hopefully for a new place to live by the end of July.

From the kitchen… Potstickers and leftover salad. Not much.

I am wearing… shorts, brown tshirt, barefoot, hair up…it’s hot. 85F inside right now.

I am creating… Well…I had to put up my ric-rac quilt until I can order some border fabric online, which means I have to wait unitl pay day. Big sigh. None of my LQS had what I needed. I’ve cut out the first part of Rachel’s (ps i quilt) quilt along.

I am going… whimper a bit…the Giants are being beat by the Twinkies. It was 8-0 in the 1st inning. ACK!

I am reading… flipping through Food Network magazine.

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

I am hearing… Kruk and Kuip on Comcast Bay Area Sports.

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

One of my favorite things… helping people out with gardening. 🙂 Since I don’t have but a few pots of maters and peppers, it’s fun to help out others.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… hopefully work on the quilt along quilt, go tubing on the Truckee, go to the Reno Rodeo, maybe catch Thor at the $3 movies.

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

Black Krim Heirloom maters growing.

  1. Hi,

    I found your blog a few weeks ago and I’m really enjoying it. Love the quilts–I have no talent in that arena so I really admire those who do. Beautiful!

    I “borrowed” your simple woman’s daybook questions, and I’m going to do it every Monday. I hope you don’t mind.

    I, too, live in Reno. I don’t know what kind of place you are looking for, but the condo complex we live in (and which I think is really lovely) has a number of vacant units. Let me know if you want more information (just email me).

    Thanks again!


    • Hi Jules!

      Please do use the Simple Woman’s Daybook.

      We have a house picked out , it’s a short sale, so it’s taking a long time to work it’s way through the system. My sister’s boss is actually buying it so we can rent it. Hopefully in a few years our foreclosure will be off our record and we can look again.

      From the look of one picture on your blog, I’d say you live near Rattlesnake Mountain?

  2. I whimpered for you when I saw that score this morning! A most shameful way for your favorite AL team to treat to your favorite team period. 😦 And while I’m at it… WHY can’t the Tigers beat the ailing Dodgers?? Sheesh!

    We were also very hot after work yesterday, and SO humid. My hair looks like I was playing around a light socket with a fork.

    Fingers crossed and prayers for a new home ASAP!
