For Today ~ 1 February 2012 ~ Simple Woman’s Daybook

FOR TODAY … 01 February 2012.

Outside My Window… Breezy, partly cloudy (had some rain and light snow), busy goings-on in the two construction holding pens, an empty bird feed swinging on the tree.

I am thinking… We really could use a nice big snow storm…the type where I get to stay home and quilt and make a big pot of stew or posole!

I am thankful for… the photography help I received from EarthSky facebookers…love how they shared their settings to take pictures of the moon. As soon as it’s not cloudy at night, I’ll give it a try!

From the kitchen… Chicken enchiladas. I made a couple of pans up last week, just pulled one from the freezer.

I am wearing… jeans, tennis shoes, a black mock turtleneck.

I am creating… I brought my hand-quilting projects to work with me today. The Farmer’s Wife blocks and the ever-ongoing Flower Garden hexies.

I am going… to have to head over to the Credit Union since they change routing and account numbers on all of us here in Nevada. I don’t write many checks, but need a few.

I am reading… I pulled down Norton: The Cat that went to Paris, only a few pages in.

I am hoping… FOR SNOW!

I am hearing… traffic, helicopter going over, stomping in the hallway upstairs, copier machine, a co-worker clearing his throat for the kabillionth time.

Around the house… laundry to be washed and dishes in the sink need washing too.

One of my favorite things… eyes that don’t itch and water…something that I wish mine would stop doing right now.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… anxiously await my new tripod, head up to either Gerlach or Sierra Valley one weekend day, pay my Nevada Museum of Art membership dues.

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

Nevada Big Sagebrush...our lovely state flower.

  1. Pretty state flower! I too hope you get snow!

    p.s. why is there always laundry and dishes? 🙂

    • While I prepare dinner I wash as I go, but dinner dishes is my husband’s job, and well…he has not upheld his end. 😉 There’s always laundry as I do small loads every other day.

  2. LOVE chicken enchiladas! Will be right over…
