A Daybook


FOR TODAY, October 15, 2012

Outside my window...the sky is blue and clear with just a few wisps of clouds.  It's going to be another beautiful day!

I am thinking...that getting a new phone and switching to a new computer all in one weekend is just too much for my brain.  My PC is close to death, so I took over the kid's old Mac.  I got a cheap upgrade and now have an iPhone. It's all so different from what I'm used to.  

I am thankful...to have live-in tech support in the form of our two sons.

In the kitchen...the fridge is stocked with leftovers from the weekend.  I made baked potato soup on Saturday, spaghetti sauce on Sunday.  I'll only have to plan a couple of new meals for the week.

I am creating...still working on the slipcover.  Did some sewing for others over the weekend, covered a cushion and mended a jacket.

I am going...on a weekend getaway with Hubs.  Hoping for good weather.  Will share photos next week.

I am wondering...about a lot of things, but for today:  why do dogs shed so much?  We have hair and we don't shed.  And how is that a greyhound, who is practically bald, still sheds?  

I am reading..."Healer" by Carol Cassella

I am hoping...The house fairy shows up soon and gets some cleaning done.

I am looking forward to...the weekend.

Around the house...such disarray, you really don't want to know.

I am pondering...why the Kalinda story on The Good Wife has become so ridiculous.

A favorite quote for today...You have encircled this mountain long enough, now turn North. (Deut. 2:3)

Some of my favorite things...seashells, fall candles, brand new uncut fabric.

A peek into my day. . .

Beautifully written, Karen. :)

It sounds like you're having a blessed day. I hope the cleaning fairies show up!

EnJoy your weekend getaway!

Well, if I go by the wad of long hair my husband had to take the bathtub drain apart for, I'd say my daughter is definitely has the shedding thing going.

I'll see your disarray and raise it with renovating dust and dirt. If that house fairy shows up tell her she's late to my house. ;v)

I'm thankful my daughter and SIL take care of my techie needs! And I think some dogs are worse than others. Buster, the grand-dog, sheds SO MUCH. I wish he were an outside doggie, but he's the "baby". I must have been reading too fast as I missed the cleaning fairy...will go back and re-read! But, she sure hasn't been here!♥♫

Sounds like a great day. I am wondering about dog shedding myself.. Ugghhh... try having a golden, lab and a boston who all shed terribly ~ If only there were money in dog hair and $hit.. I would be a millionaire. : )
If you get in touch with the house fairy.. please have her call me.

Have a great week.

It sounds like a wonderful day! And thanks for reminding me about the Simple Woman's Daybook. It's been too long since I participated!

Hey, will you send that house fairy over to my place when she's done at yours?

I'm thankful for my tech support who still lives with us. When our daughter moves away, she will have to make house calls to help us.

Have a great time on your get-away!

Your day sounds good.

Can't help with the dog question-I just know that some do.

Cleaning Fairy??? What is that???

Have a great trip!
