FOR TODAY … 16 December, 2011
Outside My Window… heavy grey skies, unusually dark considering there’s no snow or rain on the way. At least the ice finally all melted out of my driveway.
I am thinking… that if AT&T touts two-day Priority Shipping, it ought not to take 4-5 days for me to get my new cellphone! (Impatient much? Yes, yes I am.)
I am thankful for… the prospect of a trip to Florida in less than two months – a winter event I can look forward to LOL!
From the kitchen… going out tonight, but we are thawing a chicken for hubby to smoke-roast this weekend, served with a unique white BBQ sauce. Most yummy.
I am wearing… blue and white checked shirt, khakis, dark brown boots, and a silk scarf from Bali bought from Novica.com. Fabulous store!
I am creating… basting my Sunshine State quilt, hope to get quilting on that this weekend. Also added a few more rows to an alpaca scarf I am crocheting for my hubby.
I am going… to the car wash. Poor salty and dirty red card. 😦
I am reading… “Ivanhoe”, and getting much further with it than I did when I was 14 LOL!
I am hoping… that our dear friend is able to get her new car quickly, so we can get ours back! 😀 Being a one-car family for three weeks has been… interesting. 😉
I am hearing… the soft trickle of our cats’ water fountain. It’s very quiet at home today. 🙂
Around the house… finished doing a bit of cleaning, not too much to worry about. I would like to clean out my flower beds, and probably can this weekend now with a break in the rain (that actually occurs when I’m NOT at work.)
One of my favorite things… my grandma’s old piano (actually was my dad’s when he was a boy, but it was in Grandma Elly’s home for all the years I knew of…. 1909 Steinway.) Gonna play on it tonight, I think.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… haircut tomorrow, followed by dinner and karaoke at some lovely friends’.
My Picture Thought … I wanted/needed a teapot for work so I could share my brews occasionally. “Pristine” brand teapots from England are becoming increasingly difficult to find, other than Made in China (which I refuse to buy.) I want the real thing… made from good English clay, typically from the Staffordshire area. Anyway. I found this on eBay, listed by a seller in the UK. Their listing, its terms and conditions specifically, were absolutely hilarious, and had the color not enticed me to buy, their humor would have LOL! But I do like the color:
