The Simple Woman's Daybook
Outside my window... after I went to Target this morning, I noticed a hawk in my driveway!!! At first I thought it was injured because it kept clawing at the grass, but then I realized it was going after something! I pulled over and just watched it for a couple of minutes. Finally I slowly pulled into my driveway and it flew away. I have NO idea what it was going after because by the time I got out, it was gone.
And for those who enjoy my weather reports, its 89 degrees with a heat index of 100.
I am thinking... that all I want to do tonight is knit.
I am thankful... for my local library. Even though I don't read as much as I used to, I utilize it a lot for the kids. I don't mind spending $8 for a paperback (it's the same price as a movie) but hardcovers can get pretty pricey!
In the kitchen... Sunday morning I made some Pillsbury biscuits, the kind that come in the exploding can. They looked a bit weird when I put them in the oven but I thought it was because I kept them in the freezer too long (I like to put them in the freezer while the oven preheats, it helps make them light and fluffy!). I also haven't been feeling great and while they didn't taste *bad* when I ate one, they tasted off. I didn't think much of it until I threw the can out.
It said best before June 18, 2013. Explains a lot!
I am wearing... a pink Mickey Mouse t-shirt and beige shorts. I'll be adding black flip flops when I go pick up Baby Girl
I am creating...I started another pair of socks.
This will be for a man, just not sure which one yet! Both the IO and #1 Son already have a pair and don't really want more (don't know what's wrong with them!). I may either give them to a friend who has chronic health issues, or they will go into a bin for my SIL who does missionary work.
I'm also making progress on the kitty afghan.
It's strictly car knitting and I figure I have abt 4 or 5 more inches before I run out of yarn. I have more yarn in the bag to start another one when that is finished.
I am going...to start dinner once I finish this post. It's Taco Tuesday in these parts and burritos are on the menu!! (close enough!)
I am wondering...what is wrong with my cell phone. I used to get my emails sent to it and I could also forward a picture from my phone to my emails and I cant do either anymore. I must have hit a button and reset something......
I am reading...nothing other than Facebook and blogs. I should change this to I am watching because I do much more of that! In fact since the new tv season is starting I think I will!! BTW anybody a Burn Notice fan?? What did you think of the last episode of the series?!?!?
I am hoping... for the best. It's all you can do when circumstances are beyond your control.
I am looking forward to... the high school football game Friday night. There is a big difference between a small town public high school (us) and a big city private school (them), namely their field!!! Ours looks like your typical high school football field, but the private school has a field that looks like a college arena! You can't miss it, it's next to their Olympic sized pool.
I am hearing..... #1 Son watch an old episode of The Big Bang Theory. I can't see him but I know he's got his face in his Ipod while listening to the show. The kid is decompressing from school and chilling before band practice in a half hour. He's got a lot going and I have no issues when he just wants to zone out.
Around the house... another question I don't like. I *am* making progress with my mountain of paperwork. I had three baskets filled with papers. I'm down to two and I know what's in them!!!
I am pondering...If I'll ever get caught up.
A favorite quote for today...
One of my favorite things.......
My Pilot Precise V5 RT Retractable Extra Fine Point Rollerball Pen. I LOVE this pen. It's my favorite of all pens. And I'm not the only one. It goes missing often! I finally gave one to everybody AND keep a secret stash for me.
A few plans for the rest of the week: I only have the game scheduled this week. I'm trying to keep a flexible schedule.
A peek into my day... once the kids were off to school I ran errands. One thing I have found out, if you watch sales and use coupons, make sure they ring up correctly!!! I found $8 worth of errors in my receipt! This is why I try to check it before I leave the store.
