2011 Project 365 – Week Ten
We don’t have quite as many nature shots this week, but I’m pretty sure we’ll make up for it next week. Stay tuned!

This is a reenactment. I stood in the grocery store & looked like this for perhaps 30 seconds.
And then I reached out and put this in my shopping cart. Oh happy day! Sun Drop is a favorite drink from NC and I am just ecstatic that they’ve started selling it up here. Now if we can just get Cheerwine & livermush my life will be complete. On the other hand, these are things that make my hometown unique – what happens if they’re available everywhere? Does that mean that nowhere is special anymore? Hmm. For now I’ll just be excited for my new drink & try to remember that it has twice as much caffeine as my usual tipple (Kroger Big K Diet Citrus Drop).

I took this on my way home from work. I kept squinting at the clouds because they seemed out of focus, but I finally decided that it wasn’t my eyes – they were just fuzzy clouds.
My friend Jayne sent me a list of affirmations after she read this post. I printed them out & cut them into little cards. I’m going to try to focus on one a day. Today’s is I am made in God’s image.

Oh man my favorite Easter food. Really – you can keep the ham and the scalloped potatoes, give me a Cadbury Crème Egg. Sigh.
I can’t believe I’m sharing this. It’s the State of the Bug picture this week. Do you know what I’m doing? Lisa does :) I’ll post the answer in the comments on Monday.
Wednesday, March 2nd
Although we’ve had warmer temps there are still patches of ice on some of the ponds. For some reason, the swan in this picture makes me think of Nessie.
Dr. M caught this picture of a light-colored red-tailed hawk on his way home from school.
LOVE the blue sky in this picture. Although Dr. M felt a bit like he was being strafed while he took it.

It was my birthday! The ladies at work gave me this precious (and delicious) cake, a card and a primrose plant. Thank goodness Dr. M has a green thumb – hopefully we can get it to thrive in our home. Dr. M did a great post for my birthday - you should definitely check it out. He's a nut :)
Dr. M took this picture of doves in our back yard. I hadn’t really noticed before how pretty they are.
Friday, March 4th
Dr. M took some pictures that show that spring really is on its way. But first, here is a picture from January.
And here is the same place yesterday. Love the gushing water.
Flowers! I’m so excited! Maybe we’ll have flowers in our yard soon. But they’re calling for snow flurries on Sunday, so maybe not too soon.
Saturday, March 5th
Today is a rainy day. Yesterday was rainy too – some areas around us are having flooding issues.
Dr. M took this picture of our “Geranium Farm” – it’s the plant we’ve raised from a can (a Christmas gift one year). I think it’s just a little bit out of control. It will probably get quite a pruning when we take it outside again.
Here are its humble beginnings – this picture is from April 2007.
