FOR TODAY … 4 August, 2011

Outside My Window… partly cloudy, humid, 80-something.

I am thinking… that if I recall correctly from girlhood reading, Anne Frank and her family and friends in hiding were arrested today 67 years ago. I think of it every year as reading her diary made such an impression on me as a kid. (Her last entry into her diary was on August 1.)

I am thankful for… a quiet day tomorrow, with nothing planned and no obligations. I am really, really thankful for this!

From the kitchen… hubby made fabulous chili rellenos last night, using our first peppers from the garden!

I am wearing… striped jersey cardigan, white embroidered tank top, light khakis.

I am creating… working on my orange and white quilt, and almost done with my first Farmers Wife block.

I am going… to kayak more this summer. We’ve had a great couple of outings since hubby fixed the roof racks we transport them on.

I am reading… WAS reading some back issues of Quilt magazine (the best quilt mag out there in my opinion.) But courtesy of my new membership to the Crafters Circle, I have five gorgeous new books to dive into this weekend! Just got this one, not from CC, also, and think I will start with it:




I am hopingthat my friend Michelle has a smooth move into her new house, and a wee bit of summer left in which to enjoy her new yard.

I am hearing… various conversations around the office, traffic outside. The usual.

Around the house… will clean the bathroom tomorrow. Ick.

One of my favorite things… a pile of shiny new books. :D

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… quilting, reading, freezing some more beans from the garden, reading, kayaking

My Picture Thought … from our paddle last week in one of the lakes at the Holly State Recreation Area. Bet they’re in full bloom now:
