2015 Project 365 – Week Four

This week there were a couple of near misses – we almost didn’t have a picture for a couple of days. And I’ll apologize right now for the ones I’m using for those days because they’re either boring or terrifying. One of the reasons that this week is so light on pictures is because Dr. M did a blog post! You HAVE to go check it out – he took some fabulous bird pictures this week plus some of the silliest squirrel activity in our back yard yet (and that’s saying something!). Here’s the link: CLICK HERE.

Monday, January 19th  
I took a walk outside & couldn’t resist taking some pictures.

Beautiful sunset…

Tuesday, January 20th      
This is the scary picture I was talking about. My temporary crown came out & I decided to photograph it. I don’t know why. Additionally, I’m not sure why I thought I should make this my Facebook profile picture. But I did. I did do this version in black & white so it wouldn’t be so scary.

Wednesday, January 21st  
The only picture from today – I won the office pool on the size of my boss’s baby (I was one ounce off, & spot on with the length).

Thursday, January 22nd  
Campus deer.

Dr. M made a crockpot southwest chicken recipe tonight – I decided to have a little bit of it with my cheese and sour cream.

Friday, January 23rd   
Dr. M took pictures illustrating how cold it’s been! (Although this week was a lot warmer, there’s still ice everywhere).

Saturday, January 24th      
We drove around and looked at sheep today. Lambs!

Since we moved the computer desk into a separate room I’ve been mostly sitting in a lawn chair when I'm in the living room. It’s actually VERY comfortable, but I decided that perhaps I should start the process of looking for a REAL chair. I went out to a local furniture store to see if they had anything that might meet my chair criteria (made for a short person, not too reclining). Here are the ones that seemed like they might be ok. I can’t decide if I should just pick one or go to a bazillion more places to see other choices. I’m sure I’ll let you guys know whatever I decide to do!

Hope everyone has a great week!

About Today

Little ones gambol…
Although they’re calling for snow
spring is in the air!

Is this the party to whom I am speaking?

I don't know why I used that title - this post is answering questions and addressing comments. Because I apparently can't be bothered to comment on my posts.

Regarding yesterday's post, my brother says that maybe we were doing jumping jacks. That sounds like crazy talk to me - I don't remember volunteering to do any kind of exercise at that age! That lamp in the background was made by my grandfather (maybe - I seem to remember having that myth debunked, but I need to check with my dad & get back to you).

I have nothing to say about Squirrel Wednesday. Except - I've already seen the picture for the next Squirrel Wednesday.

Darla asked how I read so many books. I actually don't really nearly as many as I used to. I blame blogging & Facebook. The only way that I get through as many as I do now is because of audio books. My long commute (nearly 2 hours each day), and listening to books while I walk, gets me through a book pretty quickly. My kindle books on the other hand seem to take forever to get finished. I need to quit playing Hearts & read!!

Well, speaking of reading, I need to get ready to go gazelle. Our book club is listening to Serial (that podcast about a murder from 1999). It's not exactly a book, but it's pretty good so far.

Throwback Thursday

My parents, sometime in the 70s. Perhaps this was taken before one of Daddy's barbershop quartet concerts? I'm surprised Mom let someone (me?) take a picture of them kissing - she was more of a slap him away not in front of the kids kind of a lady. Ha!

I'm not sure WHAT I'm doing here - but it looks like I'm anticipating that I'd be moving to Ohio in a few years! And, oh look - my perm is growing out...

Monday Miscellany

So yesterday I was standing in the church kitchen, eating a cookie, and discussing books, when I bit down on something hard. I tried to chew it, but no go. I spit it out on my hand & thought, "Hmm, that looks tooth shaped!"  And that's how I learned that temporary crowns really are quite temporary! I was able to reattach it with some denture adhesive. Hopefully the real crown will be ready soon!

I'm getting so slack with reading lately! Who knows when I'll decide that I've read enough to do another book review Tuesday. How have I been spending my time instead? Crochet and Hearts (which, as I mentioned last week, I play very badly). Urgh. I think maybe it's because the book I'm reading on my Kindle is bugging me. I like it, but I don't like it.

We finally took down the Christmas tree today & moved Pinky back into the living room. I'm glad to have her out where we can see her - & I'm glad to have that space back in the bedroom! Now I can actually make the bed. Woot!

I've been sitting here for 20 minutes trying to come up with something profound to say about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Nothing is coming to mind, so I'll just say this: Happy Birthday Dr. King. We're still fighting the fight.
