2011 Project 365 – Week Thirty-Four



This week is all about the birds & blooms. I’ve enjoyed being home & getting better every day. To read more about my week go here and here.

[Please note: No Tax Time Pig pics again this week. S/he is located near where I work - about 40 miles south of here. So it will be another week or so before we have any updated pictures. Sob.]

Sunday, August 14th   
Double lily looking beautiful.


Monday, August 15th
Our next door neighbors brought us comfort food – chicken casserole!


Robin at Be Still and Know sent me a prayer shawl – isn’t she the best?


Tuesday, August 16th  
More food from neighbors! I’m pretty sure that all of this came from their garden. She also brought over potato salad – yum!


Wednesday, August 17th  
Dr. M’s university sent me flowers. So pretty!


That evening Dr. M & I sat outside and laughed at our back yard.




Thursday, August 18th       
I love how the woodpeckers look like they’re working so hard for their food.


One final lily of the season – they’ve been gorgeous!


Friday, August 19th
Terrible, horrible, no good day! I was SO SICK. I won’t go into details, but I will say that they’re not just whistling Dixie when they say you should watch your diet when you’re taking pain meds. This day I only ate about 40 goldfish & then Dr. M made this nice soup out of the basil & zucchini from our garden. He didn’t want to try to find the blender, but I kind of like the chunkiness.



Then later we sat out in the yard again. What a great evening! Here is a house finch & a chickadee being peaceable at the bird feeder.


The weekly squirrel – Ninja Squirrel!


We had the best time following this hummingbird around (with our eyes – I wasn’t roaming around the yard chasing a hummingbird!).




Saturday, August 20th
Dr. M wandered around this morning taking pictures of the yard.





 Isn't this a cool spider web?


And here is the State of the Bug – Mavis & I are freshly washed (well I am – I had my first shower in almost two weeks today!) & reading a book together.


Go to Sara’s blog here to see the blogs of all the other Project 365 participants. Have a great week!

  6. I am so happy that your recovery is going well, those occasional bad days are easier to get past when everything else is going well.

    I absolutely love that double lily! I don't think I have ever seen one before!

  11. I'll bet you thoroughly enjoyed your shower too!

    That spider web is pretty cool!

    I guess I shouldn't be surprised with all your mad photography skills that you got pictures of a hummingbird. I have yet to truly succeed.
