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…






For Today ~ 1 February 2012 ~ Simple Woman’s Daybook

FOR TODAY … 01 February 2012.

Outside My Window… Breezy, partly cloudy (had some rain and light snow), busy goings-on in the two construction holding pens, an empty bird feed swinging on the tree.

I am thinking… We really could use a nice big snow storm…the type where I get to stay home and quilt and make a big pot of stew or posole!

I am thankful for… the photography help I received from EarthSky facebookers…love how they shared their settings to take pictures of the moon. As soon as it’s not cloudy at night, I’ll give it a try!

From the kitchen… Chicken enchiladas. I made a couple of pans up last week, just pulled one from the freezer.

I am wearing… jeans, tennis shoes, a black mock turtleneck.

I am creating… I brought my hand-quilting projects to work with me today. The Farmer’s Wife blocks and the ever-ongoing Flower Garden hexies.

I am going… to have to head over to the Credit Union since they change routing and account numbers on all of us here in Nevada. I don’t write many checks, but need a few.

I am reading… I pulled down Norton: The Cat that went to Paris, only a few pages in.

I am hoping… FOR SNOW!

I am hearing… traffic, helicopter going over, stomping in the hallway upstairs, copier machine, a co-worker clearing his throat for the kabillionth time.

Around the house… laundry to be washed and dishes in the sink need washing too.

One of my favorite things… eyes that don’t itch and water…something that I wish mine would stop doing right now.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… anxiously await my new tripod, head up to either Gerlach or Sierra Valley one weekend day, pay my Nevada Museum of Art membership dues.

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

Nevada Big Sagebrush...our lovely state flower.
