For Today ~ 04 January 2012 ~ Simple Woman’s Daybook

FOR TODAY … 04 January 2012.

Outside My Window… Q&D Construction setting up a holding fence to hold supplies for something they’re building on campus. Sunny blue sky with a few high clouds.

I am thinking… I still have quilting to do and don’t want to be here at work. Patooey.

I am thankful for… my friends.

From the kitchen… Last night was chicken tacos, tonight? I’m thinking pizza…with chicken sausage, squash, onions, mushrooms and a balsamic olive oil sauce.

I am wearing… jeans, tennis shoes, a purple long sleeved henley.

I am creating… I’m quilting the Jiffy Ric-Rac (a Camille Roskelley pattern). I’m doing echoes around the rid-rac in the white areas.

I am going… to have to go shopping at lunch today… it seems that we are out of copy paper and fax ink.

I am reading… The House of Silk ~ a Sherlock Holmes novel by Anthony Horowitz. Am loving it!

I am hoping… that Reva and Mary heal fast after their surgeries.

I am hearing… Construction beeps. Lab doors slamming.

Around the house… A “new” couch! We found a lazy-boy couch that reclines on both sides at our local Goodwill store for $149. In beautiful shape, practically brand new! So…my husband had us rearrange the furniture over the weekend.

One of my favorite things… this iMac here at work. It’s the only thing I missed while gone. LOL!

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… try to finish quilting the rid-rac quilt.

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

A Christmas gift from my husband…a hand-blown glass glow in the dark jelly fish.

With the light on.

With the lights off.

    Hope you have a good week! Happy New Year!

  2. Your friends are thankful for you too. 😉

    Too funny about missing your iMac!

    The pictures of hubby’s present are really cool!

  3. LOVE that gift from your hubby. One of the most fascinating places I’ve ever visited was a monastery in Austria that had a fauna collection and was also an astronomy observatory. Their observation tower was a massive 4 stories high, which was a long way up for that time. To help the monks study the animal kingdom they had a huge collection of stuffed animals. But they couldn’t send a jellyfish to a taxidermist so they had a glass blower make one for them instead. If only I could remember the name of the place I’d send you a link.
