FOR TODAY … 17 February 2009

Outside My Window… gray sky, gray grass, patchy snow, traffic

I am thinking… that I am really very cold this morning!

I am thankful for… quilting.  It really has been a comforting therapy through some difficult times lately.

From the kitchen… leftovers from last night; we grilled a wee bit too much.  😮

I am wearing… black jersey cardian over a dark purple top, black slacks,  and black beaded necklace

I am creating… finishing up the sampler quilt top (for above frame.)  Slow going, as my carpal tunnel issues have been flaring with all this handwork on top of some computer projects.

I am going… to my quilt shop for batting.

I am reading… Jane Seymour’s Making Yourself at Home: Finding Your Creativity and Putting It All Together.  Some great design tips and fun ways to spark personalization around the house…

I am hoping… that this sore throat I woke up that won’t go away is a false alarm.

I am hearing… my space heater, traffic.

Around the house… need to clean, but who has time when there is sewing to be done?!

One of my favorite things… when Pansy snuggles up tight to my chest in the middle of the night.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… spending a day with Grandma, grocery shopping

My Picture Thought … from the Water Garden at Egeskov Castle in Denmark.  I was out of film and batteries for both cameras by the end of this day, so took this picture with my phone.  It’s not the best resolution, but I sort of like the dreamy quality…



The Simple Woman is the original home of The Simple Woman’s Daybook.

The Simple Woman’s Daybook will take place each Monday.

Here’s how to take part:

1. Write up and publish your journal page using the questions/picture ideasI have listed below onto your blog. Be as descriptive as you can! This makes it more interesting to your readers. (You may cut and paste them for the purpose to participate in The Simple Woman’s Daybook.)

2. Copy the “permalink” from your “The Simple Woman’s Daybook” post, not the link to the front page of your blog. This will make it much easier for others to find instead of looking through the entire list of entries at your blog for your “daybook”. This will save time for all of us.

3. Come back here and add your permalink to Mister Linky.
