FOR TODAY: Happy October
It's My Simple Womans Daybook Day
I am thinking... that's it taking me longer than I expected to catch up on the yard work I have planned for this Fall. It's either too hot, or it's raining, or there's something better to do or I'm too tired. Slowly but surely, I do believe one day I'll get done.
I am thankful... that I still have the ability to work outside and keep the yard looking good.
In the kitchen... just had a grilled cheese sandwich with a bowl of citrus fruit and a glass of sweet tea. yummy!
I am wearing... white bermudas and a blue top.
I am learning... as much as I can about ALEC and 'thanks' to Moyers & Company for exposing them!
You can watch it on YouTube HERE
I am going... Joyce's for coffee at 3 o'clock. Didn't get to go yesterday so for sure I'll go today.
I am wondering... if you want to know what to do about all the junk mail that we have been told to expect. Well guess what? I have some useful info for you. This is probably more than you ever wanted to know about junk mail but I think it's worth sharing so here goes.
Junk mail not only puts us at greater risk of identity theft but also cost Billions to collect & dispose of.
So here's some solutions for you.
. . . . a good way to reduce the number of credit card offers, go to OptOutPrescreen. This is a secure website created by the 3 leading credit bureaus.
. . . . to reduce junk mail, go to http://www.DMAchoice.org/. It may not stop all your junk mail but it will reduce it.
. . . . lastly, http://www.catalogchoice.org/is a free service that helps you opt out of catalogs. Hope this helps.
I am reading... I finished "The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry' and will start reading "How To Make An American Quilt" by Whitney Otto. I saw a small snippet of a movie called "The Quilt" on Saturday and when the credits came up it's based on a novel.
Eight women gather together over the years to piece together an extrarordinary quilt of their own imaginative devising. And as they stitch, we listen to the stories they have to tell of their successes and failures, their lives and loves, their dreams, desires, and the surprise and sometimes joy of living.I am hoping... that the book becomes available soon. I'm feeling sorta lost not having a book out on the table in the Florida room just waiting for me to pick it up.
I am looking forward to... Sebring's 100th Birthday celebration. The celebrations start this month. I'll be keeping you posted on any of the fun stuff I get to go to.
A favorite quote for today... “It takes a great man to be a good listener.” ― Calvin Coolidge
