FOR TODAY - September 7, 2010
Outside my window... A beautiful, crisp, September morning! The sky is blue, no wind and the sun is shining! Our low last night was 28 degrees, so Autumn has arrived here in Idaho.
I am thinking... About how much I have to get done before it gets too cold outside! My husband and I got the windows on the front of the house washed yesterday, but the back windows are still waiting! I have some trim around the garage door that needs to be painted, and I would love to give the garage a good cleaning, now that it is cooler. The list goes on and on . . .
I am thankful for... Wonderful blogging friends. Thank you for all the uplifting comments you made on my last post! I'm already feeling more cheerful!
A thought I'm sharing...
To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter... to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird's nest or a wildflower in spring - these are some of the rewards of the simple life. ~John Burroughs
From the kitchen... Soup of some kind, maybe taco soup!
I am wearing... Jeans, and an off-white sweater. I even have on socks!
I am creating...Oh, I have so much that I need to work on . . .
I am going... I have a meeting this afternoon, and then a quick trip to the grocery store.
I am reading... Nothing right now, although I do have a list of books I want to read. Maybe I will stop at the library on my way home from the grocery store!
I am hoping... That my tomatoes don't freeze before they get ripe. It's been so cold at night that we have had to cover them. We will stop watering them and hope for the best. I think they are best if they are vine-ripened, but I might have to pick them and let them ripen in the garage.
I am hearing... The sound of a quiet house, my computer humming away and soft music from my playlist.
Around the house... I need to finish my laundry. I don't know how two people can create so much laundry!
One of my favorite things... The smell of chili sauce bubbling away on the stove. Nola, at Just Ramblin', talked about making chili sauce on her blog the other day, and how she loves the way that it makes her house smell. Last year, I posted my recipe for chili sauce - it's one of my favorite recipes.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Meeting, grocery store, library, yard work, windows, plan a menu for next week.
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...
My handsome grandson, after football practice! He has found that hard work pays off!
Hard work spotlights the character of people: some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don't turn up at all. ~Sam Ewing
