2011 Project 365 – Week Thirty-Five
This week my dad & Amy came to visit & we had a great time. I’m so glad they were here – Dr. M started back to school and I would have been so bored at home alone all week!
Sunday, August 21st
Mr. and Mrs. Cardinal. I don’t know why, but they just always look so annoyed by the hoi polloi.
Our cypress vine is in its element these days – just lovely.
Monday, August 22nd
I had my post-op doctor’s visit on Monday. He released me to return to work next Monday – yippee! It was a gorgeous day – I took a picture of the clouds through the sun roof & then a State of the Bug picture – free!
Tuesday, August 23rd
The woodpeckers love the seed block.
Daddy & Amy arrived Monday evening. We spent some time hanging out on Tuesday & then went out for Mexican food that night.
Wednesday, August 24th
Daddy, Amy & I spent the day together. You can read about it here, but here are a couple of pictures from Young’s Jersey Dairy. I’m in an ice cream stupor here.
Daddy & Amy went to check out the Jersey cows.
Thursday, August 25th
The goldfinches are back! We haven’t seen very many this summer.
I had a couple of home health care visits scheduled, so Daddy & Amy went to the National Museum of the Air Force on Thursday. Amy’s first husband flew in a B-24 in WWII, so she was interested in checking out the planes on display. While they were there they bought this great coffee table book.

Daddy & Amy drove home today. Oh well, I guess they don’t actually live here. Darn. On the plus side, check out the weekly squirrel. I know that its compatriot on the ground really appreciates all its hard work!
Another State of the Bug picture in the “free” category. I drove for the first time since my surgery. It was a really exciting trip to the Walgreens to get dental floss, eye cream, & Vitamin E oil for my scar. And score! They had Brach's Mellowcreme Pumpkins at the register!
Saturday, August 27th
We’ve started our 2nd annual tomato ripening stations. Here’s the outdoor one, with just a few getting started.
And here’s the indoor one, with tomatoes just about ready to eat.
My lunch today – mini pierogi, zucchini from our garden, tomato from Daddy’s garden and garlic cheese curds from Young’s Jersey Dairy. Yum!
