Simple Woman's Daybook for March 15, 2010




FOR TODAY
March 15, 2010

Outside my window...
A pair of Starlings are hangin' out at the Parkarosa Bird Buffet, along with 2 pairs of chickadees, a pair of nuthatches, two kinds of woodpecker, and a finch. It's a busy morning in my plum tree!
 
I am thinking...
that progress on getting over this cough is finally happening. I feel so much better today.

I am thankful for...
Wild Birds. They are so entertaining.

From the kitchen...
I have a craving for cake. I think I'll make one today.

I am wearing...
tshirt and jeans.

I am creating...

I have so many WIPS going right now it's getting hard to decide what I'm going to work on in the evening. I'm enjoying every one of them. I got 2 more feet done on the Ugly Yarn lace scarf.

I am going...
nowhere today. Just gonna chill at home.

I am reading...
The Greatest Show on Earth by Richard Dawkins. It's about the evidence for Evolution. I am really enjoying the book. Couldn't put it down yesterday. It starts out with a couple chapters on gene manipulation done by humans to domesticate plants and animals for our benefit. Did you know that cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, kohlrabi, Brussel sprouts, and Kale all come from the same wild cabbage plant? I've always been fascinated by genetics.
 
I am hoping...
the trend for getting over this cough continues in the positive.

I am hearing...
Chickadees at the buffet. They are quite a noisy bunch.

Around the house...
WIPs lying all over the place. Not just mine either. Daughter Ruth has left some lying around.

One of my favorite things...
Douglas Fir. I grew up with it. There were several of them growing in our yard when I was a kid. They smell good, and the wind makes such a pleasant sound when blowing through their branches. I was noticing yesterday how much the two babies near the house have grown since we moved here. They're big, fat, and sassy trees now. The chickadees seem to enjoy playing in them.

A few plans for the rest of the week:
If I'm up to it, I've got Rathdrum Knitalong tomorrow. Wednesday I'm scheduled for my monthly blood test. Thursday I hope to return to my knitting class to teach. I'm still coughing but I think it's down to a point where it won't be bothersome now.

Here is a picture for thought I am sharing...

Tommy has such a cute little butt.


Have a nice day.
