2015 Project 365 – Week Forty

This week we had the moon and Medieval Wednesday (sort of like Medieval Monday, but on Wednesday instead).
Sunday, September 27th     
Dr. M had to get out his medieval weaponry to make sure everything was in order – trebuchet & torsion catapult.

We’ve seen a few hummingbirds this week. Dudes – it’s time to head south!

Blood moon! Dr. M took some great pictures of the eclipse. Check them out here.

Monday, September 28th     
Just-past-midnight Super Moon!

Juvenile cardinal – they make me laugh.

I finished square #4 of pattern #19. I was interested in how different it looked depending on how many colors I used.

Tuesday, September 29th                    
Dr. M dressed as a super hero for spirit week.

That evening he built his siege towers.

Wednesday, September 30th             
Medieval Wednesday!

I have a friend going through some rough times right now. I decided that she needed a heart.

Thursday, October 1st  
Campus deer.

Friday, October 2nd    
Had a meeting at our Diocesan headquarters this morning. I sat across from a wall ‘o Bishops.

Our neighbor decorated for Halloween, so Dr. M put out our new flag.

My daily walk.

Saturday, October 3rd     
Around the yard – so pretty around here these days!

I started working on Square #1 of Pattern #20. I’m not too sure about this one – either it’s weird, or I am (all right – ya'll can stop laughing now).

Hope everyone has a great week!

2015 Project 365 – Week Thirty-nine

This week was a good bit calmer than last week – although of course I still have too many pictures. Dr. M helped me out by posting some on his page – you definitely want to go check it out, here. You especially don’t want to miss the silly cardinal pictures.
Sunday, September 20th     
I went to the Wool Gathering today – a local fiber arts festival. Here's my first purchase. Don’t you think the sheep on this t-shirt looks a little maniacal?

This hat was VERY impressive!!

I didn’t count my meandering at the festival as a walk, so I took my real walk after my nearly 2 hour nap when I got home :)

Monday, September 21st     
Our Knock-Out Rose, Miss Scarlett.

I needed a change purse to match my new shoulder bag, so I made one. It’s a little lumpy & odd, but it does the job. Although it doesn’t actually match my new bag. Hmm…

Dr. M fixed the lawn mower – both handles had broken, so he reinforced it with some spare parts and about a gallon of duct tape. (Oh, you didn’t know duct tape comes in gallons?) It works better than ever now!

The moon!

Tuesday, September 22nd                   
I had a meeting at the local library. As I was leaving I saw this bulletin board in the lobby. Made me pause for a second…

Dr. M knows I love a field of hay rolls!

Wednesday, September 23rd            
My daily walk.

I thought my salad was so pretty that I had to take a picture (there’s spinach somewhere under there).

The moon!

Thursday, September 24th       
Square #1 of Pattern #19. Fun!

I took a brief walk around the building at work, being a typical person with my head in my phone playing a word game. When I got back to my office I dropped my phone on my desk & then noticed this message – ha!

I needed to scan in Dr. M’s passport photo & decided to do mine too. We are both agreed – mug shots!

Friday, September 25th   
My daily walk.

My one Black Eyed Susan is doing so well – so much fun!

Square #2 of Pattern #19.

Saturday, September 26th    
Around the yard – so pretty around here these days!

Square #3 of Pattern #20 (Yep – I sat around & crocheted all day. No cleaning, no laundry – just left the house once, to take my walk. It was bliss!)

My daily walk – the tiny little toad edition. I must have seen 20 (no exaggeration!). I had to turn on my phone flashlight to make sure I didn’t step on any of them.

When I got back I started a new project (a pocket for my new purse). I used the wooden crochet hook I bought at the Wool Gathering on Sunday. I love it! So smooth & lovely…

Hope everyone has a great week!

2015 Project 365 – Week Thirty-eight

What a crazy weekend! I came home both days & took long naps – which is why I’m just now posting this. Dr. M also has a post today – go here to check it out (there’s just a bit of overlap).
Sunday, September 13th     
Around the yard…

I started & finished square #4 of pattern #17.

Monday, September 14th     
Square #1 of pattern #18.

Tuesday, September 15th                  
Hello there!

The moon!

Wednesday, September 16th           
My daily walk – I’m walking in the dark most evenings.

Square #2 of pattern #18 (this one whipped up pretty quickly).

Thursday, September 17th       
My daddy’s birthday! Here he is looking nerdly handsome in his high school senior picture.

Our Ohio – soybean field and late sunflower crop. This field will be glorious in a few weeks.

Meanwhile, my odd little flower is starting to look like the Black-Eyed Susan that it is…

The moon!

Square #3 of pattern #18.

I finished my bag! Well, it’s mostly done – after carrying it for a few days I’ve decided I want to shorten the strap (I want to wear it as a messenger bag, but it’s still too long for that). And I want to add at least one inside pocket. Once I figure out how. I’m not lining it because I don’t sew.

Look – it’s a real Black-Eyed Susan now! (Sorry for the crappy iPhone photo)

The moon!

Saturday, September 19th    
I had anti-racism training at our local Episcopal retreat center. I walked the labyrinth during a break.

Driving home. It was a beautiful day!


The moon!

Hope everyone has a great week!
