2014 Project 365 – Week Thirty-seven

What a crazy busy week! I haven’t read a blog in ages (so so so very sorry!!!), and I haven’t responded to comments on my blog. I did want to tell Steve Reed that the lunchbox was just in the middle of the sidewalk, as if a child had been playing with it & left it behind – but it was so artfully placed that I wondered if it was left on purpose instead. There was a pile of sand behind it that looked like maybe it was supposed to be Treasure Island. Fun!

Dr. M has helped me out this week by doing two blog posts – one with hummingbirds and The Moon, and another with sunflowers. I’m including a couple of pictures of each here, but you should check his blog out for some really GOOD pictures. 

Sunday, September 7th   
I took my daily walk before I left on my business trip to western NY.

I had to laugh – when I exited the toll road it said that the next exit was Canada. Very exciting!

While I was driving northeast, Dr. M was responding to a challenge. If you’ll recall he created tomato Ohio last week. I give you…Tomato North Carolina!

The moon!

Monday, September 8th    
In East Aurora, NY, I got up pretty early & took my daily walk before meeting my boss for breakfast.

Meanwhile, Dr. M took pictures of the jungle that is our back yard.

A sunflower preview!

That evening my boss & I drove to Horseheads, NY. This was waiting in my hotel. Ha!

 The moon!

Tuesday, September 9th
With short hair comes the possibility reality of bed head.

Another brief walk before heading to our Horseheads office.

Driving home, this was my fuel for the road.

Wednesday, September 10th  
Our diocese has been scheduling Google photographers to go to all of our churches to do a virtual tour of each one. Today was our church’s turn. I went over this morning to set up the altar & took a few (quite inferior I’m sure) shots of my own.

My daily walk – a bit moody out.

I was so vegetable deprived on the trip that I thawed out some of my dad’s okra & stir fried it. Pretty tasty!

Thursday, September 11th
My daily walk. Dr. M flew this flag in remembrance of the anniversary of the War of 1812, but it seems apropos of this day as well, don’t you think?

Friday, September 12th
Our Ohio.

My daily walk.

Two more tomato states – Texas & Tennessee. Please note that these are not all the same tomatoes – we’ve been eating & giving them away as fast as we can!

Saturday, September 13th    
Dr. M took me around to look at sunflowers today – such a glorious day! Again, his blog has better pictures. I had to laugh at the one of the two of us – I was handing him the phone, saying, “My arm isn’t long enough to take this picture.” Ha!


My daily walk – went to the park along the river.

Have a great week!

2014 Project 365 – Week Thirty-six

I’m getting ready to drive to western NY tomorrow for work so I’m furiously working on this post at 10:00 at night. I was ruthless with my picture selections (which means that I have about the same number of pictures as I usually do – ha!) – hopefully Dr. M will do a post of some of the fabulous pictures he took last Sunday. He DID! Go here first, then come back, okay?

Sunday, August 31st   
Another day at Lake Erie. We went to a wetlands area to take a walk – it was a bit longer than we thought it was going to be. But it was cool because the walk was fish shaped. Heh.

 After that we stopped at the visitor center for the area & Dr. M took pictures of one of their eagles.

Then we went to one of our favorite places (East Harbor State Park) to just watch the lake.

And then we had our annual visit to Marblehead Lighthouse.

That evening I sat out by the lake for three hours reading a book. Toward the end of the evening Dr. M joined me. What a lovely lovely weekend…

Monday, September 1st   
Headed home today – time to say goodbye to the lake for a while…

My daily walk.

Dr. M sat outside this evening & took pictures of a nighthawk!

Tuesday, September 2nd
My daily walk/ride.

Wednesday, September 3rd
My daily walk.

Dr. M sat outside for a while. We love our toads.

The moon!

Thursday, September 4th
Dr. M’s school had a student activity fair today. He knows how to make history look fun!

My daily walk.

Friday, September 5th
My daily walk.

Saturday, September 6th    
Seen around the yard. The silly squirrels planted corn in a place that doesn’t get mowed & it actually has an ear of corn on it!

Dr. M has been sculpting the state of Ohio from cherry tomatoes. I think it’s fabulous :)

My daily walk.

The moon!

Have a great week!
