for today :: March 8, 2010
outside my window. . . cloudy, colder (relatively - for AZ that is!. . . it's 49° at noon.)
I am thinking. . . of making a new to-do list. . . my list kind of went out the window this weekend. . .
from the kitchen. . . Just had a mocha for lunch, so it still has the rich smell of espresso beans. Tonight it's gonna be steamed broccoli with melted cheddar cheese. . . (one of my favorites!)
I am wearing. . . gray t-shirt, J.Jill knit pants (so comfy!), & my slipper socks. (I've been going bare-foot for that past week or so. . . but this is definitely a slipper-socks kind of day
I am creating. . . a mess in my studio! I have a quilt top almost done - (just needs the border!), linen & wool for another project, & a few other stacks of yummy fabric for 2-3 other quilts that are just waiting to be made!
I am remembering. . . What a precious journey life is. . .
I am going. . . to consider going up to Phoenix one day this weekend for the AZ Quilt Guild Show.
I am reading. . . My notes for new strike offs. . .
I am hoping . . . for comfort & peace for Layla Grace & her family.
I am hearing. . . The Travel Channel in the background - I love watching Samantha Brown & her "Passport to. . ." travel shows. . . even if it's just in the background. . . Like traveling vicariously! (Today she's in France . . . sigh.)
around the house. . . we have an open spot in the backyard where the jacuzzi used to be. It hadn't been used for over 2 years - so we gave it to my quilter, Nubin, & her husband. How perfect! Now she can relax her sore shoulders in the jacuzzi after a day of quilting. . .!
I am going. . . back into the studio. There's some fabrics that need cutting. . .
one of my favorite things. . . the smell of the air - just before it rains. . . It's as if the earth knows is coming. . .
a few plans for the rest of the week. . . tonight - quilt group at my house!, then, working in the studio, meeting some deadlines, & maybe a trip to Phoenix.
