outside . . . although we started the morning with temps in the low 30’s and a thick frost – it’s now 60 degrees under sunny skies
cooking/eating . . . a pot chili and a batch of chicken & noodles made over the weekend for work lunches and a couple of weeknight suppers this week – any leftovers will go into the freezer. It’s so nice to have something home-made for lunch instead of a sandwich or frozen dinner
creating . . . two more ‘twirly-whirly’ skirts for Laney and a couple of ‘mini-moopy’ dolls for the youngest great-grands in the family
remembering . . . all those lost in Japan and praying for the survivors
reading . . . Ken Follet’s new book – ‘Fall of Giants’ and like all his books – it has me hooked. Finished ‘The Kite Runner’ over the weekend and wondered why I waited so long to read it – felt it was a testament to courage and loyalty
hoping . . . our state receives some measurable rain soon or our wild fire season will be brutal this year
hearing . . . the birds each morning when I walk outside for the paper – they seem to be announcing Spring’s arrival
home . . . it’s almost time to get outside and get some yard work done – I’ll enjoy it now – and then complain about it during those long hot summer months
tonight . . . preparing for a day-trip tomorrow with my daughter-in-law and my KC Girls – visiting family in Southern Oklahoma.
A new quilt block with raw edges, made by a member of my Stitcher group, Nancy. Love all the color and texture.
