The Simple Woman's Daybook…April 20, 2009

FOR TODAY … April 20, 2009

Outside my window… it is dusty…the sun is trying to come out from some grayish clouds …(or maybe that’s just dust clouds).

I am thinking… about the demo (small class) that I am giving tonight at my quilt guild. It is such fun to share with them.

I am thankful for… the blessing of health that I have. Even though my allergies have been bothering me a lot lately…I am still healthy..

From the learning rooms… learning how to say “no” to things that I really don’t feel like I want to do…or that no longer hold an interest.

From the kitchen… this week’s menu

Tonight: light dinner out on the way to quilt guild.
Tuesday: Chef’s salad
Wednesday: Pork chops, potatoes au gratin, and corn
Thursday: Liver and Onions, some type of veggie, and rice
Friday: Dinner out at Scoop City!
Saturday: Stuffed Pepper Casserole (make an extra for Sunday’s pot luck at church)

I am wearing… light lavender sweat suit and beige socks

I am creating… a new pair of socks

I am going… to learn how to applique this week. The challenge quilt I am working on has some applique. I’ve done a little before – but this is a new way that someone showed me and it is worth a try…especially with circles!

I am reading… 1st to Die by James Patterson. It is the first of a series. One of the things I tend to do is not read a series unless I have all the books! Finally got the first 7 – and now the 8th one will be out in a few weeks!

I am hoping… that spring will soon appear here. My friends in Massachusetts have lovely flowers blooming already and we still have nothing. It is amazing what a few hours north can have on when spring arrives.

I am hearing… the sounds of heavy machinery outside as they are tearing up the road and re-doing it. The noise is pretty loud and it shakes my building.

Around the house… the windows are closed because of all the dust the heavy machines are throwing around. I miss not having them open but don’t want to have to redo my Spring Cleaning.

One of my favorite things… was this awesome banana bread with raspberries that I made this week. It is so good. (One of my quilting friends has been making it with blueberries and bringing it to guild)…well, I accidentally opened frozen raspberries instead of blueberries. So, I used them and it turned out so good.

A few plans for the rest of the week: set up my new bed; wash the living room window where a certain little cat has put a zillion nose prints; and clear off my desk.

Here is picture thought I am sharing…

This is the banana-raspberry bread I made the other night just coming out of the oven. Was having dinner with friends…so my table was all dressed up…

    Now that’s what I call a great post. Something with a bit of ‘bite’ in it as you say Sara and I have a complete picture of you there.
    Thanks for letting me know about the changeover.
    I’m on Twitter too and must say I agree with what you say!
