2013 Project 365 – Week Thirty-Nine

Apparently I took the rest of the week off from blogging. Slacker. I was busy! Work is going to be pretty busy through the end of the year because our office is moving in December & my boss & I still have a LOT of organizing to do to fit into our smaller space. This is physical labor folks – hauling files around, emptying cabinets, etc. Exhausting! In other news, the sunflower field that Dr. M gets to drive by on his way to work (no I’m not jealous!) is gorgeous right now. I’ve posted some pictures below, but you can also check out his blog post for more fabulosity.

Sunday, September 22nd
This is the day I drove home from NC. While I was gone Dr. M decorated for fall. It’s Frankencrow! (He fell apart one year & is held together with pins)


I brought Dr. M a new sheep back with me.


Monday, September 23rd  
Sunflowers! It’s a really popular field – artists come every year to try to capture the beauty.
  




Tuesday, September 24th         
I made a scarf for a craft challenge. Good thing I bought two skeins of that yarn – I’m supposed to give this one away & I think I’ll want one for myself too.


Wednesday, September 25th   
Dr. M saw this heron.


Pumpkins!


We had a friend over for dinner. It was so good to spend time with Anne!


Thursday, September 26th
The campus herd.


I saw this hot air balloon on my way home from work – sweet!


Friday, September 27th
Sunflowers!


I think this is my favorite picture of the week.


Or is it this one?


Saturday, September 28th      
Squirrel mug shot.



Dr. M had a conference today & took the long way home, so sheep!




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. It's great! Although I've got to sort out the light situation - it's getting dark so early that it feels a little dangerous.

  5. I love the hot air balloon and the pic of the artist painting the big canvas of sunflowers. It's hard to capture that amazing spectacle on a square of fabric!

  8. Squirrel mug shot.

    My wife's dog brought home a squirrel last Saturday night. Unfortunately, it needed a CSI team more than a mug shot.

  9. Love all your pictures, but I think a deep blue sky and bright yellow sunflowers make for an awesome color pattern!

  10. Love the sunflowers! And that is a gorgeous painting too! Used to have a print of Van Gogh's sunflowers but gave it away when we moved overseas. I still miss it!
    I made something with yarn too -- felted dryer balls :) Not even close to as pretty as what you create, but I am hoping they will be useful. And much more at my skill level! Ha
