For Today ~ 5 July 2011 ~ A Simple Woman’s Daybook

FOR TODAY … 5 July 2011.

Outside My Window… I just filled up the thistle socks outside my work window, so I have house and American Gold Finches eating. Not a cloud in the sky, it’s going to be another killer hot day. Traffic up on McCarran Blvd. Bird body print on my window…looks like someone flew into into it

I am thinking… I really hate 90+ temps. First week in July and we’re flirting with 100F already! Why don’t they (Facilities) open up the vents on this stupid building at night to let the cooler air in? Geez…it was 81F in my office this morning at 6:30! Damn my arse hurts from our bike ride yesterday morning.

I am thankful for… Friends and family…and hopefully for a new place to live by the end of July. TAPPING BANK ON SHOULDER…HELLO? IT’S A BLOODY SHORT SALE! TAKE OUR OFFER AND RUN! Well…It’s Mary’s offer, but I’ll be renting the house when it’s bought.

From the kitchen… Left over bbq’d tri-tip from yesterday. Tonight for dinner I will slice it up with tortillas and pico de gallo.

I am wearing… cropped pants, green peasant’s blouse, sandals, my SHORT HAIR just with some (hair, not chocolate) mousse in it…it’s awfully curly now that the weight of 10″+ is whacked off of it. 🙂 It’s very happy and bouncy now.

I am creating… Still plodding along with PSIQUILT’S quilt along…not many of us was able to finish ours in her time allotment. I have 36 blocks finished and ready to sew together to make the top. She already posted winners so I’m out of luck on winning the gift certificate at Fat Quarter Shop.

I am going… at work…finish the new fiscal year payroll and budgets. Home…pack non-essential items.

I am reading… Nothing.

I am hoping… Just found out this morning that a co-worker is down in an Arizona hospital with (what her doctor says) advanced breast cancer. Praying that they can help her. If you’re reading this R, will be thinking about you everyday!

I am hearing… my little fan in my office.

Around the house… ants. And lots of them.

One of my favorite things… watching my tomatoes grow.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… try to stay cool.

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

  1. So fun about the new hair… all healthy and curly and shiny LOL! It is a great pick-me-up 😉 .

    Maybe next time at PSI Quilt she will pick a pattern that folks with day jobs can actually keep up with. ;p

    Cuddly furries! XOXO Too cute…

  2. Sorry to hear about your colleague. I’m hearing a lot of cancer stories lately 😦

    On a completely different subject, we’re going to try to make pulled pork this weekend. Any tips on what to serve it with? I’m thinking beans, but then we’ll have a slow cooker conflict.
