For Today ~ 06 September 2012 ~ Simple Woman’s Daybook

FOR TODAY … 06 September 2012.

Outside My Window… Big grey clouds and blue sky…it rained all night long. Hopefully soon Balloons! It’s the start of the Great Reno Balloon Race!

Enjoy this absolutely beautiful time lapse video.

I am thinking… This sure has been a bad summer for allergies.

I am thankful for… that the autumn equinox is just around the corner!

From the kitchen… I’m thinking just bbq’d hotdogs and potato salad. Or we’ll use one of our Groupons and go out to eat.

I am wearing… Tan cropped pants and a blue shirt, tennis shoes and my hair in a pony tail.

I am creating… Still making leather wrapped bracelets and some hammered copper bookmarks.

I am going… to have to turn in two craft fair applications.

I am reading… Re-reading The Hobbit…will be ready for the movie this December! 🙂

I am hoping… That we get some afternoon rains…I figured we can have afternoon rains so the balloons can go up in the mornings.

I am hearing… Me crunching on my breakfast…Emerald Breakfast on the Go in S’mores. 🙂

Around the house… Clean bed sheets, now have to vacuum.

One of my favorite things… Brightly colored hot air balloons.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… Build up my craft fair supply; label the soap.

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