Simple Woman's Daybook...
For today - WEDNESDAY
Outside my window - bright sunshine, it's going to be about 38C (100F) here today. White corellas are sitting in the gum trees, making a racket. They wake us up every morning. I hear a kookaburra each morning too but that doesn't bother me.
I am thinking - about Kirby heading off to Melbourne today. She is going to the Sensation White Party with her girlfriends. I hope they will be safe.
I am thankful - that we have air conditioning at work now. It makes the day so much more bearable.
I am wearing - black shorts, striped T-shirt and white Havaianas.
I am remembering - to pay some bills today being the end of the month.
I am going - to work this afternoon. This morning I am pottering around the house, tidying, washing, putting away Christmas stuff. It seems neverending.
I am reading - recipe books today. We are going to spend New Year with friends at the beach so I want to make some finger food to take with us that can be microwaved hot just before serving. I have a few things in mind.
I am hoping - it won't be too hot tomorrow for New Year's Eve. I hope Kirby and Bri both have a good time.
On my mind - Kirby in Melbourne - she is flying there this morning by herself, has to catch the shuttle bus into the city, meet up with her friends then get to her hotel by tram. Big adventures!
Noticing that - I am still sitting here, typing away, and the washing machine is silent. Must get another load on....done!
From the kitchen - those yummy Ginger Snaps - delicious. Also, last night I cooked chicken breasts and some breast tenders, coated in 1 cup Kraft Dijonaise (Mayonnaise), 2 teaspoons curry powder and 2 tablespoons sweet chilly sauce, in a lasagne dish. Bake at 180 uncovered for about 30 minutes, basting with the sauce once or twice. Yummy. Thinking I'll try Pioneer Woman's Mushrooms Stuffed with Brie - recipe here.
Around the house - just tidying, kitchen floor needs a mop to it, wipe out bathroom sinks, vacuum living area. Boring, boring, boring.
In the garden - I received a Topsey Turvey Tomato & Herb planter - I'll post photos when I get the thing planted out and hung up.
A picture to share - aren't these Sesame Street Cake Pops so cute. Check out how Bakerella creates these fun cakes on a stick - here. The whole Bakerella blog is full of lolly loveliness!
