2014 Project 365 – Week Four

I was quite restrained in my photo selections this week – mostly because Dr. M posted lots of pictures here and here. They’re great pictures – check them out!

Sunday, January 19th   
We visited our local fen today. It was kind of cold.



Monday, January 20th
A host of sparrows waits for Dr. M to fill the feeders.


The construction crew isn’t doing a very good job of keeping our cairn clear.


Tuesday, January 21st            
Sunset on Dr. M’s way home.


Wednesday, January 22nd
A murder of crows cavorting over the sunflower bones.


My lunch for tomorrow (that’s diced sweet peppers in the small container).


Thursday, January 23th    
Buffy the buffalo with her goat sidekicks (one of whom is staring at Dr. M – imagine!)


My soup, with the diced peppers mixed in – yummy!


So, I had a bit of a mishap with my hair this day. I don’t wash it every day & some mornings it isn’t as “fresh” as I might like. I had the bright idea of putting some powder in it. But the only powder I had was BLUE (with a peppermint fragrance). Yeah that was dumb. It wouldn’t all brush out so my scalp had this nice blue tint. So I pulled it back. Sigh.


Friday, January 24th  
The icy Little Miami River.


Saturday, January 25th   
Our front yard.


Cardinal in the snow squall. It was windy!


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. If you hadn't pointed it out, I don't think I would have noticed the blue tint in your hair, LOL! I'll bet that just made your day, huh? You could have just told everyone you were trying out for a part in the new smurf movie! ;0)

    You are brave walking around in the cold like that. I'm guessing it wasn't -8 on the day you visited the fen?

    1. Ha! No...it was in the 30s F I think. Nothing like the bitter cold days.

  2. You probably should have added "It was kind of cold" to every day's comments... ;-)

    LOL at your blue scalp! I have to wash my hair every day, or it would look like someone had taken my head sometime during the night and mopped the kitchen floor with it. Sadly, my kitchen floor does not look like this scenario happened.

    1. PP, it is "kind of cold" up here just now :-) Ha! Our kitchen floor does not look like that scenario happened, either.

  3. "A murder of crows cavorting over the sunflower bones." You do have a way with words.

  4. Are you sure that shot of your front yard isn't one of Dr. M's shots of the moon?

    "Sunflower bones." Ha!

    Love your lunches. Gimme that Babybel.

  13. I will say it is always smile-producing to come here! Glad to see your bento box is still getting a workout. Question -- do you find yourself feeling compelled to put certain things in your lunch just in order to fill all the cool little compartments? I would and would totally eat too much as a result! LOL!

    1. Hee! She does that, yes. So far, though, she is focusing on light snacks like cherry tomatoes or sweet pepper strips :-)

  14. Make no mistake--the goats are plotting something sinister. All of them are.

    1. Ha! Having once owned a goat, I agree with you, Nance!
