Here we are in Week One and I’m starting off the year as I mean to go on – with a gazillion pictures. I tried to cut some of them out, but I didn’t do very well. Perhaps I need an editor!
Sunday, December 29th
After going to the nursing home to help my dad lead singing for Sunday School, we drove back to Ohio. Before we left I finally remembered to take a picture of the doll that my cousin the potter and her mother the seamstress made for my wedding. I’ve never had anywhere to keep it in my home, but I think that the next time we go to NC I’m going to bring her home with me. The dress is made out of my mother’s wedding dress. Pretty good likeness!
We took our usual detour on the way home. Guess what we saw?

New Year’s Squirrel!
I finished the set – hat, fingerless gloves & scarf. As I finished the hat I realized that I had misread the pattern when I made all those other scarves & gloves. Ha!

We got about 6 inches of snow. What a way to start the year!
Dr. M bundled up to take the trash out. Thanks sweetie!

I finished the scarf I started last week. Love my model!
We went out to run some errands & of course had to check out the ducks & geese at the local park. The camera setting for the first picture was wrong, but I think it’s really cool!
Lots of snow everywhere. The first picture here is one of the roads we went down. Thank goodness most of our roads are pretty clear!
And we’ll end the week as we started it – with sheep!
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!
