SUNDAY, JANUARY 17TH
I've been meaning to share a picture of our dish drain with family members (yes, I know this is strange). We don't have a lot of room for a drain, but we don't have a dishwasher so one is definitely necessary. Mike found this ingenious little bamboo one that fits the small space on the counter between the sink and the washer. Nifty! I had wanted to show one of my massive Towers o' Dishes, but had to settle for a medium tower because I was stumped for a Sunday picture & just needed to take this one. Ha!
MONDAY, JANUARY 18TH
Monday was the trip up to Springfield where we drove through Saylor Park.
TUESDAY, JANUARY 19TH
When I arrived home on Tuesday this was the sight that greeted me. The small penguin from our Christmas display made it into the garage, where he got a prime seat on the rocking horse that Dr. M's dad made for us. Dr. M plugged him in to amuse me. It worked!
My sister-in-law B made scarves for Christmas presents this year. I was very lucky to get this lovely green & blue number. I've been wearing it with my winter coat, but on Wednesday I decided to wear it as part of my work outfit – I thought it matched my turtleneck quite well.
THURSDAY, JANUARY 21ST
Here's another item I've been wanting to show off. Dr. M wanted to start taking sandwiches to school last semester which reawakened my uber-guilt about using sandwich baggies. I did some research on the internet & ordered two of these sandwich wraps. As you can see, the inside of the wrap is some sort of plastic material that can be wiped off & the outside is cloth. It functions as a placemat when it's unwrapped. I love them! I even got the snack wraps too – they're more of a bag that we can put chips or other types of snacks in. I took tuna sandwiches to work this week & didn't use one baggie.
FRIDAY, JANUARY 22ND
Friday night Dr. M & I went out for Mexican. It was quite yummy. I was going to take a picture of my plate, but I find that most of my food pictures look extra unappetizing. Blech! Instead Dr. M took a picture of the cat from next door. He's a very fat black & white beauty. We tolerate him stalking the finch feeders because he's kind of slow & dumb. He doesn't ever seem to catch anything LOL. In this picture he looks sort of demonic, but he's really a sweetie.
SATURDAY, JANUARY 23RD
Today is laundry day, but I'm not taking a picture of our dirty clothes! Although, hmmm – we have a pretty cool "laundry center." There's an idea for a day next week when I can't think of anything else. Today I took a picture of the Encyclopedia of Northern Kentucky for which Dr. M contributed an entry on Lynching (we got our copy of the book this week). Can you believe that they needed a book this size for just northern Kentucky? Wow. It's pretty thorough. I'm quite proud of Dr. M's contribution. His dissertation was about the treatment of freed people in Kentucky after the civil war, so this is right down his alley.
Go here tomorrow to see the blogs of all the other Project 365 participants.
