2011 Project 365 – Weeks One & Two
Saturday, January 1st – New Year's Day
We decided to just stay in on the 1st and enjoy a leisurely day. I did some reading of a library book I downloaded onto my netbook.
I'm sorry this picture isn't very clear – it was taken through the kitchen door which kept fogging up. But I really wanted to include a picture of Kung Fu Squirrel this week. Hi-Ya!
Sunday, January 2nd
We went on a ramble to see what was going on in the world. We tried to take pictures of some frozen ponds.
Dr. M had to say a sad farewell to a bag of shredding that had been in his car for a month or more.
While we were out we had this conversation. When we got home I decided to go for it & made my peanut butter, jelly, banana, ham & cheese sandwich. Wow it was good!
Monday, January 3rd
The Tax Time Pig dressed for the new year.
Dr. M took pictures of these geese flying. I could not decide which picture to use, so you get them all. I like the geometry of the pictures.
Tuesday, January 4th
As you can see, our bird feeder attracts an eclectic group.
Every night when I get home, this sight greets me. He's sitting on our swing that we're storing in the garage for winter. He gives me the evil eye as I pull in. Today Dr. M had plugged him in so I laughed when I saw him.
Here's a better picture that's not taken through my windshield.
Another squirrel picture – I just think they're so cute.
It started snowing while I was at work. This is supposed to be a picture of me with snow in my hair. However, it just looks like I'm in a bad mood.
Here's my car before I cleared the snow off - just a dusting.
Thursday, January 6th
Our bird bath cracked. Which is sad, but I love this icicle that formed from the crack.
There are three birds in this picture, but only the cardinal isn't camouflaged.
Friday, January 7th
More snow on Friday – Dr. M took this on his way home from school.
Saturday, January 8th
More snow (more opportunities to grow!). Here are some indignant penguins – I have to cater to their wide internet following. Heh.
Our neighbor loaned us his snow blower and Dr. M spent a while clearing our driveway, the neighbor's driveway, the sidewalk down the block & around the corner, and the sidewalk down the other direction from our house. He's such a good Samaritan.
I had mentioned in an earlier post that I broke down & got a Kindle. So far my favorite feature is that you can increase the print size – don't need to wear my reading glasses to read it! I'll be doing a separate post later with my "official review."
As I am posting this at nearly 4:00 it's snowing again. The heavy sighs you hear are Dr. M watching his hard work being undone.
