Outside my window... It's overcast, hopefully we will get some rain this afternoon. We have had rain most everyday this past week, and it has been wonderful...for most of us. Just South of us about 50 miles, they have had flooding with almost every rain storm, not so fun! We need the rain desperately to help with the fires and to fill the reservoirs here in Idaho.
I am thinking... That it's been a while since my last post. I'm not sure how to fit blogging in every day, so once every few weeks will just have to do.
I am thankful... For my garden - I have loved eating from it this Summer.
In the kitchen... Today, I am making chili sauce. This recipe is one of my families favorite sauces for most everything! I love it on, ham and beans, hamburgers, hotdogs, in soup, on re-fried potatoes, tacos; really, just about anything you put ketchup on, it's delicious!
I am wearing... My usual Saturday garb - denim capris, and a comfy shirt with pink flowers on it.
I am creating... I'm crocheting an afghan for my new little grandchild that will be here in November! As you probably guessed by the color, it's a boy!! We are so excited to meet this new baby! His mama will also be glad when he gets here!
I am going... I'm staying home today!
I am wondering... What to have for dinner...Oh, you have that problem too?!
I am reading... Zoo, by James Patterson. It's an interesting read, very different.
I am hoping... I broke my big toe this week...and it hurts!! I'm hoping that it feels better by next week!
I am looking forward to... Getting this beast, (my husbands new toy, not my husband... ;0)), busy putting in a new fence. It's only new to him, but he has sure had fun with it!
The grand kids gave it their approval too!
I am listening to... Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys! I just love old country music, and Bob Wills is one of my favorite, reminds me of my dad.
Around the house... Mostly puttering, although, we did get the rain gutter guards up last week, so the leafs won't clog up the gutters this Fall...hence the broken toe!
I am pondering... Getting old...yikes!
A favorite quote for today...
Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Today, putter, finish the chili sauce. Sunday, renew my spirit by going to church!
A peek into my world... watching Clara feed Jessica's chickens green grass, and checking out the beautiful sunflowers in her garden...can you see the huge bumble bee on the sunflower?!
Have a wonderful week-end!!
