2013 Project 365 – Week Two

This week started out pretty cold, but ended up feeling like spring. It is still January, right?
Saturday, January 5th  
I took a picture of our sweet potato bush. This is actually several sweet potatoes. As long as they still grow & don’t rot I guess we’ll just leave them like this. Dr. M did trim them once after they started poking him in the eye.

Sunday, January 6th  
Heather the Sheep checking out the snow in her New York City cap.

I might have taken full advantage of a Michael’s coupon.

Monday, January 7th          
Dr. M saw the campus herd Monday morning.

We decided that we needed some squirrels IN the house. They’re sitting in our basket of buckeyes.

Tuesday, January 8th
Heather models two scarves I made Amy.

Dr. M plays with light on his way home from school.

Wednesday, January 9th    
The campus herd looking a little sinister.

Scenes from Our Ohio.

The State of the Bug. I finished a hat for my aunt Mimi. She wanted Tiger’s Eye & Turquoise. I guess this is sort of close :)

Thursday, January 10th    
I think these pictures Dr. M took of icy ponds look like paintings (and I love how the trees are reflected in the water).

Traffic jam!

Friday, January 11th      
We’re totally thawed out now & Dr. M saw this in our back yard. What?

I saw this bumper sticker on my way home from work. Made me laugh.

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! 


  1. The ice is so pretty! You are quite the industrious woman with all that yarn!

  2. Those icy pictures do look like painting. Just lovely.

  3. You're too cute. I love your state of the bug pictures.
    I think my favorite is the one of the hay bales with snow on them. So pretty!

  4. Tiger's eye and turquoise -- that's an interesting combination, and it works!

    Love the bumper sticker.

  5. Those icy pond photos look good enough to frame. Y'all probably have enough awesome photos to create your own coffee table tome :)
    Enjoy the heat wave -- you know it won't last long!

  6. The sweet potato makes me think of Little Shop of Horrors :).

    Love the nature photos. They're some of my favorites on your P365 posts.

    (and *might* have taken full advantage of a Michael's coupon?...)

  7. A dandelion in January???

    Love the bumper sticker - a friend of mine has a T-shirt that says this on the back.

  8. Love, love, love, the squirrels, so cute. Your scarfs are beautiful, makes me want to grab one & wrap up in it.

  9. love the scarfs!!! you have been quite busy lately!!!

    so will you plant that potato bush outside in the spring?

  10. I've tried to grow a sweet potato for years. Never have any luck!

  11. I'm impressed by how docile your critters are, just cllimbing into wicker bowls and posing, letting you dress them up....very obliging they are. ;)


  12. great pics. all that yarn! you have my address, right?

  13. I always love these posts! Such fun to glimpse into your life.

  14. I always enjoy your Saturday weekly wrap up, even if I can't seem to get here until Monday. The bumper sticker cracks me up. Any reason to laugh on Monday is most welcome.

    Your husband's photographic contributions are, as always, wonderful.

    You are moving toward yarn SABLE: stash acquisition beyond life expectancy. It takes a few years to get there, but always seems to involve Michael's coupons.

  15. Quite an array of lovely pics.
    Beautiful reflection on the water!
    Love Heather in her several outfits.
    Had forgotten about growing sweet potatoes.
    Great variety this time.

  16. I always look so forward to your post. You have such an eclectic smattering of life. Love the scarf...and the potato...think I will go home and try to grow one myself.
