FOR TODAY … 15 September, 2010
Outside My Window… cloudless skies, green everything else, a lawn crew.
I am thinking… that insomnia stinks. *yawn*
I am thankful for… a capable hubby who replaced much of our leaky roof last week! Oh, and allergy meds. *sneeze*
From the kitchen… we’ll be grilling something recently acquired at the Country Smokehouse in Almont, Michigan.
I am wearing… beige linen top, brown tank underneath, brown slacks and sandals… bronzy and greenish jewelry.
I am creating… MUST buckle down and finish that Disappearing Nine Patch quilt! Too much home improvement last week, too little time. 😦
I am going… to master my new iPad if it kills me.
I am reading… just finished Maeve Binchy’s Circle of Friends. This was recommended to me by a fellow fan of Rosamunde Pilcher’s, and I’ve often heard the two authors compared favorably. However, I really think Pilcher is the master at setting a scene and creating an atmosphere; I just didn’t feel as drawn in by Binchy, though the story and people were somewhat absorbing.
I am hoping… that I start sleeping better, so I can get more done in a day. Summer’s sliding away!
I am hearing… nothing but my own keystrokes. This office is too quiet.
Around the house… need to call Lowe’s and see if our new bathroom cabinet is finally in.
One of my favorite things… new toys to become acquainted with, electronic or otherwise.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… a restful, crafty day Friday, picnic with my congregation on Saturday (weather forecast iffy.)
My Picture Thought … thanks to Jane Brocket’s blog (Yarnstorm-Gentle Art of Domesticity) I became interested in having dahlias in my yard. I’d not grown them before; however, the vibrant colors and simple but high-impact ways she arranged the cut flowers proved irresistible. I’ll try more varieties next year; this one is “Karma”. Toward the end of the bloom’s life, the outer petals begin to turn golden…
I’ve always loved dahlias! So glad they have a place in your garden now!
iPad, BABY! Conquer it!
Har du købt en iPad? Du vil HELT sikkert komme til at elske den 😉 Er det den samme som min? Jeg har min med mig hele tiden og jeg er simpelthen så glad for den!
Hvis der er noget du er i tvivl om så spørg…my baby og jeg er efterhånden temmelig gode venner ;-D Tilykke.
Here is a few apps I’m sure you’ll like:
HandiCraft, Soundhound, SlideReader, Kindle, WordPress, Tunin Radio, Mac Life, ….and Farmville 😉 knus
Yes, I did buy one yesterday… and it is the same as yours LOL! I sold my other piano last week, after inheriting Elly’s, which gave me a little money to spend and a little to save. 😉
I am so glad you’re so pleased with yours! I just need a little time to really sit down and play with it. I’m sure I’ll be bugging you with questions LOL! Christian thinks it’s a very cool machine 😀
Thank you for the app recommendations! I knew there was one for FV and was going to go looking… Handicraft sounds very cool.
…writing from my iPad..;)
It IS a very cool machine LOL.
LOL playing the piano for the first time..on iPad…: ode to Joy.
Have always played the guitar and drums for a while, but found some free beginner nodes on the net, so pratice pratice ;D
Oooh, I might have some fun on the drums!! 😀
maybe some day I’ll be a geek like you two! LOL!
LOL I’m sure you will. I see the signs ;-D And don’t worry, your friends will love it 😉
