A Simple Woman's Day Book for March 1, 2013

A Simple Woman's Day Book for March 1, 2013

Outside my window... it is a beautiful winter day.  I am really looking forward to the walk home.

I am thinking.... that any musical by Rogers and Hammerstein is pretty great.  We went and watched a performance of South Pacific on Wednesday.  It was wonderful.

I am thankful for...my dear friend Meagan not being more seriously injured in her fall yesterday.  She broke her wrist and had to have surgery, but it could have been so much worse, especially since she's got a bun in the oven.  I am disappointed that I don't get to spend the weekend with her as a result though.  Oh well, things happen!  At least she is, more or less, okay.

From the kitchen... comes a fresh batch of Peanut Szechuan.  After blogging about it yesterday I couldn't stop thinking about it.  So I had to make some more.  It is so spicy and good.

I am wearing...  a daisy dress my mother made many years ago for my sister, with a long sleeved black shirt and black leggings underneath.

I am creating... a charming piece of embroidery on a tea towel, another knit bonnet, but in black this time, and a dress.

I am going... a 60th birthday party for one of my friends tonight.  I am quite looking forward to it as they are musical folks so I am sure it will be a lively and enjoyable evening.   

I am reading... The Gardener by S.A. Bodeen, A Sand County Almanac by Aldo Leopold, and Uppity Women from Medieval Times by Vicki Leon.

On my mind... that I've gained a bit of weight over the winter.  Too much snacking, I think, and not just on apples and carrots!  It amazing how much of a difference 10 pounds can make in how I feel and how my clothes fit.  I don't care for it.

Around the house... its a bit of a wreck.  We have so much unpacked from our trip as we have just dumped it in a couple piles in the living room and kitchen.  But,

One of my favorite things... how few people live in Montana.  Its fantastic. 

A few plans for the rest of the week... go to said birthday party, haul off some recycling, fill the bird feeders and find a place for my awesome new bird bath, fix the garage door, go birdwatching, unpack in an effort to tame the wreck.
A small window into my life...
Birdwatching at Riverfront Park.
 This format come from the Simple Woman blog.

  1. Uppity Women from Medieval Times is really great. You don't drink milk, I know, but did you read my latest blog post about the milk industry's plan to put aspartame in ALL milk and not be required to label it?

    1. Oh, I read about that! Yes, that is insanity. Redefining the term milk?!? That shouldn't even be allowed.

    1. Yeah, no joke! But, still a broken wrist...yikes. I feel so blessed to have never broken any bones (knocks on wood!).

  4. What a nice way to document your day! I took note of the books you're reading - I'm always looking for the next good book.

    1. Yes, I like this format quite a bit myself. Its so interesting to compare them since is it standardized. Some things change so much and others are delightfully constant.
