Donkeys and Pitbulls ~ Virginia City, Nevada ~ St. Patrick’s Day Parade 2015

My favorite part of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade up in Virginia City over the weekend. I was following the Wild Ass Women’s donkeys when a very handsome pittie and donkey wanted to go nose to nose. The pit was getting over being scared by all the shooting from the gunslingers when the fuzzy donkeys came by.

For Today ~ 29 December 2014 ~ A Simple Woman’s Daybook

FOR TODAY … 29 December 2014

Outside My Window… More construction trucks dumping dirt loads. Empty bird feeders.

I am thinking… It’s the last Monday of the year, and I really don’t want to be here at work. Big sigh.

I am thankful for… My friends and family. All and all, it wasn’t that bad of a year.

From the kitchen… I’ve been cooking a lot lately, I’d like to go out…but that’s doubtful.

I am wearing… Tennis shoes, jeans, long sleeved olive green t-shirt.

I am creating… I still have two quilts to finish and two bracelets, but I’ve been resting my hands trying to get the CT flare-up to die down.

I am going… check out the red box for a movie, just was texted a free movie code.

I am reading… I’ve been rereading The Historian by Elizabet Kostova.

I am hoping… It really won’t be as cold as the weatherman says it will be.

I am hearing… My TARDIS refrigerator and someone clearing their throat constantly.

Around the house… House is pretty clean.

One of my favorite things… my new TWSBI Diamond 580 1.1 mm fountain pen all inked up with J. Herbin Stormy Grey 1670!

A Few Plans for the Rest of the Week… Go to the movies, write with my new pen, take walks.

Here is a few pictures thought I’d share with you…
