2012 Project 365 – Week Twenty-Three

It was a GORGEOUS week! I walked with a coworker every morning at work and sat outside with Dr. M most of the evenings he was home. Can we have this weather until September please?
Saturday, June 2nd  
One of two weekly squirrels :)

We never did anything with our mums at the end of fall – so they all came back & a couple of them are just about ready to bloom.

Sunday, June 3rd
After church we decided to take a hike at Clifton Gorge. The path we took just runs along the top, so not too strenuous. It was a beautiful day & we enjoyed it quite a lot.

Later in the day we got a new hanging basket for the front yard.

The moon!

Monday, June 4th     
Went to dinner with a friend. You can read all about it here.

Dr. M teaches late on Mondays & Wednesdays this summer. He saw part of the campus herd on his way home. Someone on Facebook commented that the one deer obviously hadn’t read the sign – ha!

Tuesday, June 5th   
Dr. M wanted to make sure that we had some more pictures of cows this week.              


He also took a lot of cloud pictures. This one is my favorite.

Wednesday, June 6th   
Dr. M put out the poppy flag. Daddy & Amy were flying theirs while we were in NC, but obviously our poppy flag season is a few weeks later than theirs.

I mowed the front lawn as a surprise for Dr. M. Boy was that a nice workout! (That's the neighbor's dog who likes to run free every opportunity he gets)

The State of the Bug – a sweaty mess (who looks a LOT like her mother in this picture).

Thursday, June 7th      
Our neighbor gave us this grill that they never used. Dr. M grilled chicken for dinner tonight – it was excellent. Thanks Mr. Ken!

Another Weekly Squirrel.

Dr. M tried to get a picture of Mrs. Cardinal, but all he got were her tail feathers.

Robin on the roof.

Friday, June 8th      
Our first daylily bloom!

Some bird action.

Our lovely yarrow.

We’re almost positive that this is volunteer corn in front of our volunteer tomato plant.

Bee in the hanging basket.

When I hit my 10 year anniversary at work I got to choose a gift. I decided to pick something I would probably never buy myself. Dr. M & I spent a lovely couple of hours enjoying my choice.

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

Most of our photos are taken with a 12 megapixel Nikon D5000 DSLR, using a 55-200mm zoom lens. This is the camera that Dr. M takes with him most days. He also takes pictures with our old reliable 7 megapixel Canon Powershot A710.  The Bug uses our new Nikon Coolpix S6200 most of the time. If you’re interested in which camera was used for a particular shot, just ask! 


  1. Great pictures, especially the one of the two of you. You look rather naughty in the single of you. I wonder what you were thinking.

  2. Clifton Gorge looks like a beautiful place. Of course, with a free gas grill and a firepit, why would you ever leave your own backyard? :)


  3. What a lovely week!
    I like your 10 year "gift". Good choice!
    Clifton Gorge looks like a beautiful place to hike.
    I'm so happy you're enjoying mowing and all kinds of yard work this year -- quite a change from last year, huh?! Yay for successful surgeries! :)

  4. You have the most charming varieties of yarrow I have ever seen.

    AND the nicest neighbors! What a generous gift.

    Thanks for the cow picture. That brown Holstein on the far right is particularly captivating. I love his face markings. So cute.

    It's always a pleasure to see pictures of you and The Professor together. It's so patently obvious how much you enjoy one another's company. I always feel so uplifted when I look at the two of you sharing a moment. It's very loving and affirming.

  5. The squirrel looks like it has a mustache. Love the yarrow. Looks like you had a good week!

  6. As Holstein is only a few kilometers from here (Schleswig-Holstein is the farthest north Bundesland of Germany, cow country), I am used to Holstein cows (mostly black and white). But I admired each one of the others, the squirrels, that black crow with its LOOK, you after work, haha, all the other birds, that illiterate deer, really nice, Bug! Have another great week!

  7. yes - the photo of the two of you is lovely

    the moon shot is jaw-dropping. Wonderful shot

  8. The Gorge was outstanding, just beautiful!

    Loved all the flower pictures, I never tire of looking at flowers:)

    Love the fire pit and awesome friend and even better grill!
    Happy grilling!


  9. I love the moon shot....it is amazing. I love the birds....but the second squirrel shot was cool. The blackbirds eyes were awesome too....loved the gorge shots too. Looks like your week was wonderful and I am looking forward to next week.

  10. I get a tad freaked out when I see pics where I look like my mom... guess its inevitable :)

  11. I was just taking a walk today and thinking how much I enjoy the tiger lilies.

    I have always looked like my mom...its obvious to me when I see pictures of myself...a little scary! :)

  12. I think that cloud photo looks like an angel doing the back stroke in a sea of blue.
