This has been quite a week in the Bug household. I took my car in to find out why the “Service Engine Soon” light was on & found out that it needed over $1,300 in repairs. Ugh. This encouraged Dr. M to order the parts to fix the brakes on his car & he’s out there even now working on side number 2 (did I mention that he’s handy to have around?) & saving us about $500 in labor.
Thursday my friend & former choir director Joanne died. She had been unhappy and pretty ill for a while now, but it was sad to let her go. She was a woman with many talents, with a voice like an angel, with the ability to skewer an errant choir member with just a look, & my Tuesday night supper companion.
And in the midst of all that I worked on a giant filing project for three days at work that left my hands too sore to crochet!

Sunday, January 13th
My sister-in-law gave Dr. M these terribly cute little sheep. Of course I like the black one best :)
I finally got Amy’s scarves ready to mail, along with a hat for a friend (which had been ready since before Christmas – oops). Also finally wrote my Christmas thank you notes and some letters for people’s birthdays.
Monday, January 14th
Dr. M saw the campus herd Monday morning. (Yes, this is the same as last Monday – but I think the deer are different)
I finished a hat for a coworker who has cancer and a blogger friend (hey Karen!).
Tuesday, January 15th
Dr. M had some fun taking night pictures on his way home from school.
|Is it just me, or do those squiggles look like rabbits bounding across the road?|
Wednesday, January 16th
Sheep and cows aren’t the only critters who stare at Dr. M.
I got myself a three-pack of readers & stashed one pair on my desk at work, one on my desk at home & one in the bathroom. I was trying to figure out the best place to keep the pair at work & realized that they fit perfectly on my paper holder.
I finished two more hats. The blue one is unclaimed & the other one is for another blogger friend (hey Ellen!). I think that they both need a little more work.
I wore the blue one home. I was listening to a Stephanie Plum audio book (Notorious Nineteen) & I think this was just after the part where her car was blown up by a rocket launcher – again. The State of the Bug – alarmed!
Lastly (I know – a lot of pictures this day), the sky was glorious as I entered our little town!

More deer pics – they’re hanging out by the railroad tracks.
Friday, January 18th
Another day with a lot of pictures. First up, squirrels!
Evidence of my filing. Now multiply that stack by about 15 & that’s how many files I handled.
Go to Mamma Fran’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!
