For Today ~ 1 October 2012 ~ A Simple Woman’s Daybook

FOR TODAY … 01 October 2012!!!! It’s OCTOBER! YAY!

Outside My Window… Sun. Going to be another HOT day. SOB! It’s supposed to be in the 70’s NOT THE 90’s! Ok…enough of the rant. Tree’s are changing colors as are the fire bushes. There’s a few wee sunflowers that the birds planted.

I am thinking… Thoughts are scattered today…me thinks the full moon had people weirded out where I live…they kept me up both Saturday and Sunday nights. Headache didn’t help either.

I am thankful for… For allergy meds, since the rabbit brush is blooming for what seems like the 50th time this year.

From the kitchen… Maybe pizza, maybe grilled ham and cheese…not really sure.

I am wearing… Tan cropped pants and a olive green shirt, tennis shoes and my hair down.

I am creating… I took a break from leather/bead wrap bracelets to make my friend, April, her earrings. Sterling silver hammered wire with pearls, silver and purple beads. I don’t like the french wires I put on them so will go look for posts or make them myself.

I am going… try to find out if and when the UP #844 will be coming back east so I can get pictures of her in the canyon west of Reno.

I am reading… Still not finished with The Hobbit. Been flipping through a few different magazines too.

I am hoping… That once this weekend rolls around with the cooler weather that it will STAY.

I am hearing… Cars on McCarran and Enterprise, people walking in the hallway, me typing.

Around the house… is clean! I did a lot of housework yesterday.

One of my favorite things… Pumpkins. Football. Baseball’s scramble to get into the playoffs. My Giants have no worries…so GO Oakland and Detroit!

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… Look for something to wrap my soaps up in…I may just use parchment paper and string.

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

Wordless Wednesday ~ 5 September 2012

Weekend in Photographs ~ Garden, Birds, and Bees…Fabric too!

It’s windy, cloudy, and my left sinus is killing me so I thought I’d just post a few photos I took over the weekend.

A few Denyse Schmidt fabrics in 1/3 yard cuts that I got at Joann's.

Part of my haul from Garden Spot in Sparks...Bee Balm, Dill, Sweet Marjoram, Orange Thyme...Thank you Groupon, $40 for $20!

Tarragon and Chives I planted in one of my old enameled pots. Catnip behind it, Thyme and Oregano to the left, taters in the barrel.

Taters are growing! Taters are growing!

Bee on what I think is an Oregon Grape/Barberry bush...at Crystal Peak Park in Verdi, NV.

Bees were loving the pretty yellow flowers! Loading themselves down with pollen!

Goldfinch along the Truckee River at Crystal Peak Park, Verdi, NV.

My Irises are starting to bloom in the front yard.

Day at Verdi’s Crystal Peak Park

Spent Saturday at Crystal Peak Park over in Verdi…a short hop skip and jump from Reno. The park is right on the Truckee River…and was pretty busy. Looked like the fishing was pretty good by the bridge…lots of fishies were being taken away.
