Oh what a glorious week! It was Dr. M’s spring break & we decided to have a staycation. I accomplished a couple of things on my 50x50 list, but mostly I just slept as late as I wanted to, read books & crocheted. Nice! It’s going to be a Rude Awakening tomorrow when I have to get up for church an hour early.
Sunday, March 3rd
After church Dr. M took me out to eat for my birthday. Of course, we had to meander for a bit on the way home. We saw snowdrops and buttercups (eranthis) – lovely signs of spring.
Lambs were everywhere!
We saw two red-tailed hawks.
I didn’t get a birthday cake this year – there were too many other sweets around. This is a chocolate peanut butter cupcake from church, with fudge ice cream & French vanilla cool whip – yum!

On Monday I went to get my license renewed. When I got back I took this State of the Bug picture – surely I don’t look as bad as my driver’s license picture!
Here are my last three licenses – I was amused to see my hair changes. This year’s is my least favorite.
stalked took pictures of a chickadee.
And this terribly cute sparrow.

It started snowing Tuesday night.
Wednesday, March 6th
We woke up to a winter wonderland!
I shoveled the driveway (it was a wet heavy snow, but relatively easy to shovel). While I was shoveling I noticed this robin looking lost. Dr. M took his picture as he (the robin, not Dr. M) surveyed the world around him in confusion.
Thursday, March 7th
We have a whole host (or quarrel) of sparrows who live in the shrubbery in front of our house.
We took a drive to check out the snow & somehow ended up here. That’s rural Ohio for you.
Friday, March 8th
Birds in the ‘hood.
Martha Goose & Heather the Sheep (and a pair of Dr. M’s slippers) patiently wait on me to finish vacuuming.
Saturday, March 9th
I call this my "John Wiseman Mark." In this post I talked about how a group of us has been marking off the 100 most critical days since his stem cell transplant in January. He has been doing really well. But about 80% of the time, when I take the cap off the marker to mark the calendar, I get a dot of red on my hand. I have to laugh at the fact that I'm apparently not capable of removing a marker lid. :)
Otis the singing dog (he sings My Girl, hence his name) & I model my latest hat creation. I’m not sure what I think about it. Although that won’t stop me from wearing it!
It’s a beautiful day here & most of the snow has melted, so Dr. M decided to get his bike out for a spin around the neighborhood.
Oh, & don't forget!!
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!
