9:05 I just now made my bed and put on a load of whites. Threw a bed pillow in there, too, and hope the bleach isn't a bad idea with that. I'll let ya know...
Outside my window… It's a glorious day! The gold-orange leaves of the aspen and cottonwoods stand in brilliant contrast against the deep, penetrating blue of the sky.
I am hearing... The morning started off with a chill, so I started a fire in the woodstove first thing, which is just now dying off with quiet little pops and crackles. But that subtle smell of wood smoke lingers in the house. Smells, looks, and feels like autumn!
10:35 Ok -- so here I am, back to the computer. Mixed up a batch of Pumpkin/Banana bread batter -- and got sidetracked in the middle of it -- ending up cleaning out the bottom shelf of the pantry and the top of the stove. Took me long enough that I don't have time to bake my bread before 11 a.m. school-day Mass, so it's sitting on the counter, waiting.
|Found this for a song at a thrift store! In working condition,|
though it's a pity someone decided to paint over the wood
and wrought iron... -sigh- Got my work cut out for me if I'm
gonna completely restore it!
Sung to the tune of: We Love Us Some Tipis...
