For Today ~ 14 October 2011 ~ A Simple Woman’s Daybook

FOR TODAY … 14 October 2011.

Outside My Window… Clear blue sky, not a cloud in the sky! People driving to work. Burning bushes turning bright red.

I am thinking… REALLY?! 85F DEGREES?! It’s October 14th! Come on Mom Nature! Drop the temps 15-20 degrees please!

I am thankful for… good friends.

From the kitchen… Hoping it will stay clean! 🙂 I want to use one of our 2-for-1 coupons tonight.

I am wearing… jeans, tennis shoes, a brown short-sleeved blouse.

I am creating… started quilting on the Ocean quilt top; still working on the batik grandma flower garden; made up 4 more 1/2 pint soy candles; made grape juice from the grapes my sister gave me that she picked…soon to be jelly.

I am going… to have lunch with Melinda before she heads on up to Washington state for good.

I am reading… a 99 cent book on my Nook ~ A Job From Hell (Ancient Legends) by Jayde Scott.

I am hoping… my friend April and her husband have a nice vacation. Be safe and have fun.

I am hearing… construction workers, planes, cars.

Around the house… a new October Glory Maple tree! Plus 80-100 newly planted daffidols and tulips in the front yard.

One of my favorite things… Planting for the future! I can’t wait until spring to see what the front yard will look like! Also can’t wait to see the maple change colors! FALL…if it would ever get here. Summer, winter, summer…come on! Give me some COLOR and cooler temps already!

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… weed the 3×3 area where there’s a rose bush under the kitchen window, prune it, and then plant some strawberry plants that my sister’s boss gave me. Whack down a tea rose bush that’s as tall as the 6′ fence…it’s a bit unwieldy. Get some quilting in. Visit some pumpkin patches around town.

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

Our new October Glory Maple (15 gallon size) that the Garden Shop delivered and planted; and some mums growing in our yard.
