FOR TODAY … 20 August 2012.
Outside My Window…
Reno, Nevada sunrise ~ 20 August 2012
I am thinking… It sure would be nice if autumn would come sooner than later. I’m really tired of the heat and wildfire smoke here in town.
The red maple out front is starting to turn colors.
I am thankful for… Friends. Love them to pieces.
From the kitchen… Pork chops and rice for dinner tonight. One of my favorite dishes that my Great Aunt Hazel would fix my sister and I when we visited.
I am wearing… cropped olive green/tan pants, olive green shirt, and sketchers sandals.
I am creating… I’m multi-tasking at the moment. Just finished another wire-wrapped pendant yesterday. Am still hand-piecing a Farmer’s Wife quilt block.
Wire-wrapped piece of petrified wood.
First pendant…with the copper “antiqued”
I am going… have to start looking for craft fairs coming up! Ruth, Reva and I have been making stuff all year long. I found one in Portola, this October, for $25/table. Need to find some in town.
I am reading… Finished all three stories in Mary Downing Hahn’s Haunting Tales, will have to just close my eyes and pick another book on my nook.
I am hoping… That I my copper wire wrapping becomes better as I really would like to use the silver wire! LOL!
I am hearing… a small plane overhead; traffic on McCarran; me.
Around the house… Laundry.
One of my favorite things… creating with my hands.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… Try out a few new dinner recipes; buy a good pair of flat-nosed pliers for jewelry making; finish up a few leather wrapped bracelets.
Here is a picture thought I’d share with you… (LOL! I’ve been sharing pics like crazy up above, but will find another)
Spent wildflowers outside of Portola, CA.
