2013 Project 365 – Week Five

It was a snowy week around here – more so for Dr. M than for me. Fortunately for you, he took pictures! (Yes, this is the very same intro I had last week – I sense a winter theme!)
Saturday, January 26th  
This would have been my parents’ 50th wedding anniversary had my mom lived. So I was a little melancholy today. Fortunately we had cardinals in the back yard to cheer me up.

Sunday, January 27th  
Martha Goose & Chloe modeling their winter gear. Chloe is wearing the Maker’s Mark sweater last seen here.

Monday, January 28th           
Dr. M found the shy moon only once this week.

Upon the advice of a coworker I experimented with trying to eat oatmeal on my way to work. Um, not recommended. Turns out she has a lot of stop lights on her route to work, whereas I have 40 miles of mostly 60 mph driving.

Dr. M saw Fozzie Bear in a puddle!

An un-frozen bird bath.

Tuesday, January 29th  
At last the Tax Time Pig has stopped being Elmo! Apparently it’s Valentine’s Day now.


Wednesday, January 30th    
It was late in the day & we realized we hadn’t taken a picture. So Dr. M took this one of tree branches, knowing that’s one of my favorite kinds of pictures.

Thursday, January 31st  
Dr. M got to go to the beach today! See this sand dune?

Oh wait - that's not sand, is it? Sigh.

Friday, February 1st      
Dr. M took this picture of the sunrise when he got to campus.

I wore this hat to work this morning, but it’s too small. I can’t decide whether to rework it or find some child to give it to.

Snow pictures from Dr. M’s commute home.

When I saw this picture of the sparrows in the tree out back I laughed out loud. I’m not sure why, but they amuse me.

On my way home from work I saw this silly sight.

The State of the Bug – I made this for a male friend. I think it’s probably big enough!

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 moon shot with the trees is the best one yet and the snow shots are lovely

  2. so many great pictures! but I guess I like the moon and the sparrows best.

  3. Quaker makes oatmeal bars. They are quite good, especially if you microwave them briefly. Love the snow pictures.

  4. Hmmm... I think the puddle sorta looks like Winnie the Pooh.

    I like the branches picture too!

    Yay! Sqirrels! Ha! Ha!

  5. you're too funny! good work on the hats

  6. Loved the snowy road shot, very lonely looking....


    Loved all the birds and especially the sparrows int he trees

  7. That very first picture with the cardinal in it is my favorite. I'm sorry you missed your mom this week. I'm glad you had something to cheer you up! :-)

  8. Love all the shots. Your cardinal is amazing...Dr. M's moon shot is eerie. Your package will be mailed this week....last week just didn't happen.

  9. WOW... that is a big hat!!!

    That Fozie Bear is AWESOME!!!! :)

    I think that picture with the tire tracks down the lone road is probably the best picture EVER on your site... that would be beautiful printed out in black/white & framed in black!!!

    I think the cardinals were a gift from your momma :)

  10. You know, for the first time through, I read "Emo Pig" :). And I kept looking at the pic thinking, "Exotic Dancer Pig". :).

    Very lovely nature pics as usual and yeah...no on the eating oatmeal while driving.

  11. You are always so funny with your photos of yourself. Your tax time pig reminds me of a mailbox we have down the road. Long story....

  12. Loved the sparrows and the cardinal.

    So happy to learn that the Tax Time Pig has a romantic streak.

    I've been out of commission lately so I'm playing catchup. I'm off to read your posts that I've missed.

  13. I read this the other day, but forgot to comment.
    Love, love, love so many pics. Can I even prioritize?
    --snow scenes, awesome!
    --birds on fence= postcard or header-worthy
    --sheep and donkey, amazing!
    --smile under hat, beautiful!
    --Valentine Pig, too cute!
