Wow – 53 weeks & not one missed picture - although there were a few slightly odd ones. I can't believe Dr. M & I didn't miss a single day. I think my New Year's Resolution will be to do the same thing next year – I think I can be reasonably sure to actually achieve that. As promised, I'm starting this week on Saturday, Christmas Day (although Dr. M snuck on here & posted a picture on Saturday last week). And I'm ending on Friday again – I want to start the new year fresh next week. Then I'll get back on track.
Saturday, December 25th – Christmas Day!
It started snowing Christmas morning, and by the time we left the nursing home after spending lunch with Dr. M's mom (who was thrilled to see him) this was what it looked like.
That evening Daddy wanted me to take a picture of the mini pecan they found. They get these periodically & apparently they're perfectly formed & very tasty. And cute!

So it just kept on snowing. No church for us today! I have a post showing some of the lovely snowy scenery here, but here are a couple of bird pictures. Daddy & Amy have a wealth of cardinals – it is the state bird of NC after all.
And here is a blue jay who apparently has a taste for Old Roy dog food.

Lots of pictures today. We pass these flags when we go to the nursing home. I'd like to say that it's because the local high school mascot is the Rebels, but I'm sure we all know what they really mean. Sigh.
Of course we have pictures of sheep – this time they're Lincoln County, NC sheep. I think they're well insulated from the snow!
That evening we went to Dr. M's aunt & uncle's house for soup & sandwiches. Afterward Dr. M enjoyed her new recliner – it has a built-in massager.
Tuesday, December 28th
Dr. M took a picture of the sunrise on Tuesday.
I went to lunch at Atlanta Bread Company with my cousin KJ. She didn't really want me to take her picture, but we Project 365ers are ruthless. Heh. We had a great time - & didn't nearly get done talking.
I wanted evidence that I did eat something besides cake while we were in NC.
Wednesday, December 29th
We headed home on Wednesday. I had lost my sunglasses so we got new ones at a truck stop. I think I'm the stuff LOL.
Here's part of our journey. We were joking that we weren't sure we'd make it up that snow covered road in the distance (click on the picture to make it larger). Don't worry – there's a tunnel. And we know that's not really a road :)
Thursday, December 30th
Laid back day of doing not much but laundry & putting away Christmas presents. I got Dr. M this sock monkey wine cover.
Friday, December 31st – New Year's Eve!
Today we went to Yellow Springs to eat lunch and wander around the shops. It's a nice little new age-ish kind of place. There's a clothing shop I told Dr. M he has to bring me back to when I lose 20 pounds. After that we went to the mall in Springfield to go to the Christopher & Banks (sweater sale!) and to get some calendars. No pictures of any of that. However, here is a clue to where we went next. What treat do you imagine we had?
On our way out we saw this bush with a very content fluffed out bird ensconced. What a cutie.
We will likely not stay up until midnight tonight – but we'll see. I have a book to read. Anything could happen! So once again I'll wish everyone a Happy New Year! I'll be documenting it again – can't wait to see what pictures we end up with!
