Just a few photographs that I took while walking the trails at the McCarran Ranch of the Nature Conservancy of Nevada, Sunday, January 19th.
It was a sunny and warm (56F), a beautiful day for a hike along the river.
FOR TODAY … 6 January 2014
Outside My Window… High clouds blanketing a blue sky. Snow covering the rocks outside still (no direct sunlight to melt the snow that fell what seems like eons ago).
I am thinking… Wow…it’s really been since August 2013 since my last post?! I’ve been uninspired lately, sorta in a funk. I hate where I live. It’s not conducive to quilting nor baking/cooking, which I love to do. Even my photography hasn’t given me much joy. So, I’m going to pull myself up by my bootstraps and move forward! 🙂 I’m also thinking whoever is on the end of 971-208-9936 is VERY lucky we can’t grab throats through the telephone lines, because I would if I could…9 phone calls since 8:18 am PST is driving me crazy. Stupid spam callers.
I am thankful for… the space heater under my work desk. My friend April, my sister Colleen. My new town home come January 24th (yes, you heard right. ANOTHER move)
From the kitchen… Not much since most of it is packed up. Going out to eat tonight…have an Amazon Local deal I bought.
I am wearing… Tennis shoes, jeans, long-sleeved grey blouse.
I am creating… Nothing! All of my fabric is packed. Except for these lovely Pat Bravo 1/2 yards I bought from Hawthorne Threads with a gift certificate! Mostly from Carnaby Street and Summerlove with a few thrown in from Bazaar Style, Rapture, Rhapsodia and Poetica. 🙂 Pat’s fabrics make me happy.
I am going… to keep searching Craig’s List for a couch and washer/dryer for the new town home. I found a couch for $200 (looks brand new), but for some stupid reason my husband filled up the back of the pickup truck with stuff from the garage already. IE: no way to get said couch if I decide on buying it. I should unload the truck when I get home tonight.
I am reading… I also packed all my books. But I do have my nook I should pull out.
I am hoping… That if we get any snow and rain it comes fast and not on January 24th!
I am hearing… a postdoc down the hall going over research with his PI.
Around the house… boxes. Cats are getting squirrely. Lucy is making sure we won’t forget to move her.
One of my favorite things… My kitties…
A Few Plans for the Rest of the Week… Pack more. Maybe go to the Nevada Museum of Art. Walk a little more.
Here is a few pictures thought I’d share with you…
