2011 Project 365 – Week Twenty-Four
I’d like to say thanks to everyone who commented on Thursday’s post. I have to say that Friday was the best day I’ve had in a while – I got a lot of work done, I had energy, I finally reviewed my surgery packet & allayed some of my fears. I think I’m ready for surgery now, whereas before I kept thinking about canceling it. I felt so good after pouring out my heart & getting all that feedback that I thought maybe I could benefit from therapy. But, you know, blogging is free & it seemed to be pretty effective. So the next time I need some mental help I’m just going to come back to you guys!

Dr. M & I had a great time touring the Adena Mansion & Gardens. Go here to see more pictures (including sheep & a camel!), but here are a couple not on that post. I had forgotten to show interior pictures of the upstairs of the great barn we saw. It’s a pretty fabulous barn.
And here’s the State of the Bug – happy to be sitting down! As I mentioned in my other post, those are not white stockings on my legs. Those are my actual neon white legs. Sigh.

I decided to dress up one of Dr. M’s sheep for the possibility of rain.
Here’s our patriotic hanging basket – it just keeps getting prettier and prettier.
Tuesday, June 7th
The Tax Time Pig. There really is some gender confusion here. In case you can’t tell, that’s a bikini top & a tutu. Yeah. The false eyelashes just slay me.
Dr. M took this picture of a woodpecker – looks to me like it’s gotten its beak stuck in that nut block. Silly bird!
Wednesday, June 8th
On this day I posted a poem about Dr. M’s mom. But even though I was sad, I came home & saw that Dr. M had taken this picture of the petunias at the entrance to his school – in the school colors of course. Made me smile.
Thursday, June 9th
On Thursday I posted something wondering if I have some depression going on. And then I came home & took some pictures of flowers (or potential flowers) in our yard. We’re gonna have lilies soon!
I love this vine.
The weekly squirrel. It looks like it’s saying, “Please sir, can I have some more?” But Dr. M is waiting on the “I’m all right” soundtrack to start.
Friday, June 10th
Today I had a great day at work. I worked hard, I felt alert, I had energy. It was great! And then I came home & saw these great pictures that Dr. M took of a temporary marshy area by the road – from all the rain. Herons!
Here’s a close-up of the one on the right.

Dr. M found another toad in front of our house. This one is darker than the one a couple of weeks ago.
We decided to go on another ramble. We had a Subway picnic (my favorite part of eating Subway is Sunchips – oh & it’s cheap) & then explored a short trail with a waterfall.
Love this little mini fall beside the big one – looks like a grotto to me.
I’m thinking, “OK, let’s head back to the car now. I shouldn’t have worn flip flops & I’m thirsty!”
Then we drove around awhile looking for a mythical covered bridge Dr. M remembered seeing. And then we actually found a covered bridge! It was a good day.
