FOR TODAY … 18 January 2013

Outside My Window… There’s a pogonip moving through the valley. The freezing fog is putting a frost onto everything in it’s path. Even me while walking down the hill from the parking lot to work!

I am thinking… I wish I could shake this head cold. My nose is red and sore and I’m tired of coughing.

I am thankful for… Kleneex with “potion” in it.

From the kitchen… I made a “hmmm…what’s in the frig that I can put into the pot?” dinner last night. Onion, garlic, red and orange peppers, mushrooms, spinach, chicken sausage, tofu…all tossed with brown rice and Israeli couscous a splash of olive oil and fig balsamic vinegar.

I am wearing… Jeans, tennies, black mock turtleneck, purple wool sweater.

I am creating… I’ve been pulling out the triangles I cut out a while back and sewing them into rows. The fabric is Frolic by Sandy Gervais for Moda.

I am going… To check out the movie schedule for the weekend. Still have some movie passes from Christmas.

I am reading… All Roads Lead to Austen: A Year-long Journey with Jane by Amy Smith.

I am hoping… It warms up into the 40’s with some sunshine.

I am hearing… Muted sounds due to the fog.

Around the house… laundry needs to be done and the kitchen floor needs to be mopped.

One of my favorite things… Books and a teapot full of hot vanilla chai tea.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… Not really sure.

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

Leo and Lucy snuggling.

Snuggling again...same chair different night.

Friday Morning Pogonip Photograhs

We’ve had a winter storm the past few days…and this morning I saw the pogonip hit my house very early…then receded to the lower valleys ~ Truckee Meadows and Spanish Springs.

My Lilacs ~

Fog at work ~



Now onto the non-foggy pictures.

My herbies are growing ~

Dinner last night….Mac & Cheese ~ recipe from Mennonite Girls Can Cook. I made my white sauce over the stove, not in the microwave…and I added ham.

And something I saw that tickled me!
