It was a snowy week around here – more so for Dr. M than for me. Fortunately for you, he took pictures!
Saturday, January 19th
I mentioned last week that Dr. M was working on his brakes.
I think he needed new pads, don’t you?
After he finished we went for a spin to make sure they worked. And we found sheep – imagine that!

One of our snowy days.

The geese are on the move again.
I wonder if you can read their configurations like you can read tea leaves?

I had made this scarf for a coworker last week & forgot to photograph it. She wore it to work today so I could get a picture.
Dr. M came home to a back yard overrun with starlings! Very Hitchcockian I must say.
Fortunately this guy ran them off.

The State of the Bug – I finished a scarf to match the blue hat. I was going to give this set away, but the scarf has “issues” so I’ll make another set to give away.

It snowed a lot on Friday morning. Dr. M took these pictures on his way home from school. It didn’t snow nearly as much down where I work – in fact I didn’t have to pay attention to the road at all on my way home until I reached our neighborhood. I mean, of course¸ I paid attention to the road, I just didn’t have to be careful. Um, I think I’ll stop talking now.
Fat cardinals in the back yard.
I was craving cake & a friend posted this recipe on Facebook, so I had to try it. Not bad!
[Note: Here's the recipe - sorry I didn't include it earlier!]
¼ cup sugar
¼ cup flour
2 Tbsp cocoa
2 Tbsp olive oil
3 Tbsp water
Mix dry ingredients, then mix in oil & water. Nuke for 1 minute 40 seconds. Careful – it’s hot!
Another Facebook friend’s son underwent a stem cell transplant January 14th beginning 100 days of living in a sterile environment while his body rebuilds his blood cell system from the ground up. A group of us marked our calendars for April 24th (the 100th day) & we’re counting down each day until then. Today his mom reported: "Well everyone it's official, John Wiseman has turned the corner. On Wednesday his white blood cell count went from .1 to .2 and as of today its .8. His body has accepted his stem cells and his body is making its own cells. He is still weak and we have a long way to go but it's at least a positive report…“ (That went into my “Good Things” jar)

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!
