Easter at church – we all put a flower in the cross.
The State of the Bug: I wore another one of my grandmother’s hats to church. As I said on facebook: I'm intrigued by the sassy tassel - I'm not sure I ever knew sassy tassel Mamaw :)

The campus herd. I like the green eyes…
These dudes make me laugh out loud – especially the one on the right. Ha!

On Monday one of my coworkers had us convinced that she had resigned effective immediately. She was even putting her things in a box. Of course it was an April Fool joke. We told her that she had to bring us cake to make it up to us – and this is what she brought – carrot cake cupcakes. It’s as big as my head! (Ok, I exaggerate, but really – it’s huge!). Thanks Mary!
Meanwhile, Dr. M was stalking doves against a gorgeous blue sky.

Chickadee at a birdhouse – now you see him, now you don’t!
Nuthatch, in a rare upright position.

We rarely see bluebirds up here – it was really cool that Dr. M was able to capture one.
The flowers of spring – ah!

Dr. M’s picture of the early morning moon…
Meanwhile, I was taking this picture of the sun…
Pinky is about to burst through the window – she’s ready to head outside…
As I was getting ready to leave work, my cousin Kim called. We had a great 20-30 minute talk. After it was over I noticed that I had phone ear – and it reminded me of all the times my mom would get off the phone with her best friend Sue, red ear blazing. Made me smile.

On Saturday Dr. M & I went to see the Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit at the Cincinnati Museum Center. It was pretty fascinating (if CROWDED!!). I enjoyed seeing all the artifacts – it’s amazing to think of putting those broken jars together with the shards they found. We weren’t allowed to take pictures of the actual scroll fragments, but my main thought about them is I didn’t realize how small they are. All that tiny writing – makes my head hurt to imagine trying to make sense of them!
As we left the exhibit we saw this artifact – ha! It was in an exhibit about the role played by Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati with regards to recovering the scrolls, etc. This is the desk of Martin Abegg. The computer is the one on which he assembled the "bootleg" copy of the scrolls that broke the long monopoly on full access to them.
After we finished the exhibit we impulsively decided to watch the IMAX movie about the Flight of the Butterfly. VERY interesting tale about the migration of the monarch butterfly – I highly recommend it.
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!
