Today . . . . March 15th

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. 

from my picture journal . . .

A new quilt block with raw edges, made by a member of my Stitcher group, Nancy.  Love all the color and texture.
