For Today ~ 26 July 2011 ~ Simple Woman’s Daybook

FOR TODAY … 26 July 2011.

Outside My Window… I had to replace the two thistle socks outside my window here at work. Some bird (probably the scrub jay) took out the bottom of the socks! Sunny day, not a cloud in the sky. Slight rustling of the leaves, so must be somewhat of a breeze. People driving to work.

I am thinking… We Get to Move! We Get to Move! We Get to Move! 🙂

I am thankful for… Friends and family, and health…even if I’m overweight, I’m actually pretty healthy otherwise.

From the kitchen… Last night I made a wrap that included red bell pepper, kalamata olives, red onion, garlic, tomato, feta cheese, mint, lemon and romaine. For a side I made Israeli couscous with lemon, mint, balsamic vinegar and olive oil.

I am wearing… cropped pants, brown blouse, tennies.

I am creating… boxes. 🙂 I’m packing.

I am going… go to the house inspection this morning. Maybe get a movie from Redbox after work.

I am reading… Nothing.

I am hoping… That my co-workers chemo, that starts this week, goes well and that she stays strong.

I am hearing… cars outside, someone walking very heavy upstairs…for a new building, this place sucks…you can hear the person above you on the phone, people walking in the hallways.

Around the house… boxes…lots and lots of boxes. We moved most all of the basement upstairs…only thing left down there is the washer/dryer, my grandma’s dresser & mirror, my canning rack and jars, and two river inner tubes.

One of my favorite things… well, I can tell you it’s NOT being woken by your cat when he hooks you in the arse-cheek!

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… try to stay cool, continue to pack, go to Friday night’s Reno Aces baseball game (tickets from MIL).

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

From last Saturday’s drive ~ flower along 89 between Truckee and Sierraville. The barn is on the way up to Frenchman’s Lake.

  1. Quilters butt, eh? Me too. I’m trying to do something about it. I burned a few (not that many) calories on the treadmill this morning. Figure it all helps.

  2. Hello again. 🙂 I’m back from my blog slumber in lovely Seattle, Wa! I was thinking about you this past weekend as I was learning a few quilting tricks from J’s Grandma! I hope to start one soon!

    I’m LOVING that last photograph! Love, love, love it!

    Hope you are well!

  3. Boy, Leo sure knows how to get you where it counts! Bad tabby!

    Beautiful pix!

    Go Aces!

    What a gorgeous landscape. I love the old barn. That’s where I wanted to move. Still stuck in suburbia (sigh)

    • Sierra Valley, California is one of my “favoritist” places…if I didn’t have to work and had some money, I’d definitely buy a piece of land with an old house and barn. 🙂
