Dr. M gave a presentation at the county historical society meeting – about the role of Ohio African American troops in the Civil War. He did a great job (I'm perhaps a bit biased) and was well-received by the mostly white-haired crowd. (Younger folks don't seem to care – or maybe they just don't have time until they retire?). Afterward we ate at a restaurant in town (this is where the sweater picture was taken). On our way home we had the sun in our eyes the whole time – but at the last minute it was beautiful.
I was so amused by how I looked on my way home from work on Monday that I had to take a picture. See my shiny red nose & cheeks? This is NOT from the cold. I am famous for creating a sauna-like atmosphere in my car. By the time I think, "oh, it might be a bit warm in here," it's probably already 85 degrees.
Tuesday, February 2nd
I have two pictures from Tuesday. The first one was taken by Dr. M on his way home from school. I just really liked the clouds. That tiny dot in the sky is a plane.
One of my coworkers remembered my tomato woes from last year (our little patio pot got the blight) & decided to get this for me to see if I would be able to kill tomatoes in a whole new way. I can't wait to get started!
That same coworker & I went to lunch at a local Indian restaurant. Boy, I wish I had this plate of food RIGHT now! It was a buffet, so yes I had a small plate of seconds. Obviously, I need to hang out with this coworker more often!
We were supposed to get a lot of snow on Friday. We ended up with 3 – 5 inches here in our town, but surrounding counties got a LOT more. This is a picture from Dr. M's campus – one of those counties that had more than 10 inches of snow yesterday. His commute home was a bit treacherous – thank goodness for four wheel drive!
Yet another day with two pictures. I can't seem to just pick one! The birds have really been enjoying our finch feeders. We usually put thistle in there, but the last time we bought seed we got another type as well as another bag of thistle. We put one type in each feeder. The birds totally ignored the inferior seed, so Dr. M mixed them together & refilled the feeders. I suspect that the birds are eating the thistle & dropping the inferior seed on the ground where the sparrows aren't as picky LOL.
Go here tomorrow to see the blogs of all the other Project 365 participants.
