The Simple Woman’s Daybook: September 19, 2011

Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY September 19, 2011

Outside my window… sunny and in the 90’s. I’m seriously jonesing for four distinct seasons here — 97 F in September is unacceptable.

I am thinking… that I hope “the Buffet plan” passes and the millionaires and billionaires start paying their fair share.

I am thankful… for our “Winnie the Pooh” DVD. It kept Daniel quiet last week and it’s allowing me to get some web work done.

In the kitchen… nothing exceptional. Lunch for me was a baked Yukon gold potato. (I prefer them because they’re smaller and they have a better flavor than the russet ones.)

I am wearing… black Arabic shirt and black shorts (my “around the house” clothes).

I am creating… details for my NaNo piece.

I am going… to Walgreens today if my doctor’s office calls in my prescriptions.

I am wondering… where my regular cookbooks are and when I’m actually going to feel like cooking from scratch again.

I am reading… Stealing Lumby by Gail Fraser. The A.J. Jacobs book isn’t keeping my attention and I have the Lumby books until October so I’m re-reading them now that I’ve read the first one.

I am hoping… that I’m over Daniel’s bug though I haven’t had the issues that he has — in my case, it’s just a fever.

I am looking forward to… the fall season priemieres on CBS this week.

I am hearing… the refrigerator humming and “Winnie the Pooh” on the DVD player.

Around the house… echoing Dawn on this: don’t ask.

I am pondering… how people can call themselves Christians and yet support Tea Party politics. I’m not trying to start a fight here — the Tea Party rhetoric goes against EVERYTHING in the Bible about taking care of each other in both the Old and New Testaments. They truthfully disgust me.

One of my favorite things… the quiet time I get after Daniel goes to bed.

A few plans for the rest of the week… Daniel’s various therapies on Tuesday and Thursday and the Sacramento Zoo on Friday with my parents.

  1. Come up and visit us . . . we have four distinct seasons, although it is still summer here, mostly. We have had a few nights were we had to close all the windows, but we haven’t had to light a fire yet. I can’t remember if you are a quilter or just a knitter. There’s a quilt show up in Downieville on October 1 and 2, and we’ll be there. The following weekend is Oktoberfest in Sierra City, which is just 12 miles past Downieville. It’s a lot of fun, and would be good to bring the whole family to.

    Or wait until fall truly hits, and come up to see the colors, and have dinner with us. We’d love it. We could even childproof the living room, but not the office. =)

  2. I am in Christian community with people of diverse political opinions, including those who align with the Tea Party, and I find that conversation with them stretches my mind. What I understand is that they want genuine Christian community (sharing all) with others, but don’t believe the government is the one to enforce it.

  3. janice, i think we’re going to have to agree to disagree. you might have that experience amongst those with whom you fellowship but i see a completely different side in montana and northern california.
