For Today ~ 13 June 2011 ~ Simple Woman’s Daybook

FOR TODAY … 13 June 2011.

Outside My Window… Train going by on a northern spur, cars, birdies on the thistle sock, construction guys taking a front loader somewhere on campus.

I am thinking… I’m hungry. Pooh Bear tummy thing going on. 🙂 My wrist hurts! Wonder if it’s from playing Avalon Legends Solitaire too much. I wish short sales didn’t take so long to process.

I am thankful for… a roof over my head, even if I’d like to torch the one I’m currently under…don’t worry, I won’t. But I can’t promise what my husband would do.

From the kitchen…  Last night I made up a chicken and rice dish. I marinated the chicken in: seasoned rice vinegar, sodium-lite soy, garlic, serrano pepper, peanut butter, ground ginger, ginger lemon honey and some olive oil. (it’s what I could find in the frig and pantry!) Some Jasmine rice. Broccoli. Dumped the chicken and marinade into a pan and cooked it…put the whole thing over the rice.

I am wearing… jeans, tennies, short-sleeved blue shirt, hair in pony-tail.

I am creating… a Camille Roskelley quilt ~ Ric Rac in a Jiffy!

I have 60 half circles cut out…16 all sewn together. I’m using Riley Blake, Doodlebug Design’s FEELING GROOVY fabric…it’s SO CUTE!

I am going… to go to the Nevada Museum of Art this weekend…To Live Forever, Egyptian Treasures from the Brooklyn Museum opened up over the weekend.

I am reading… going to start a Tina Fey book.

I am hoping… not hoping, am praying…for patience, peace, more patience, and a puppy.

I am hearing… me coughing. I really dislike post-nasal drip.

Around the house… Leo is a sad kitty. He wants a new house with a fenced lawn too.

One of my favorite things… gardening…and I don’t get to do much of it where we’re at now. I have 5 tomatoes in pots, and four pepper plants too. I guess the good thing is I don’t have many weeds. 🙂

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… work on the ric-rac quilt, try to wait patiently for ps i quilt to get her quilt a-long up and running.

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

14 1/2 pints of jam I made up ~ strawberry & rhubarb, and strawberry, raspberry & mango! The berries and rhubarb were fresh from the farmers market…mangos, bag of frozen ones. LOL!
