2014 Project 365 – Week Thirty-three



It’s late on Sunday night & I’m just now getting this posted. Who knows what I might say!

Sunday, August 10th  
I took pictures for a 10(ish) on 10 post today. You can see those here. Dr. M took these pictures in our back yard. There’s a sweet little Carolina Wren, and a hilarious squirrel eating one of our green tomatoes.


My daily walk - got caught in the rain.

My daily walk.


Inside, our tomato table is well guarded.


The moon!


Tuesday, August 12th            
Dr. M saw some lovely flowers on his way home from school today. Zinnias are some of my favorite flowers…


My daily walk.


Today I read my packet for my colonoscopy scheduled for next week. I was reading the list of things that I wasn’t supposed to eat for a week prior to the procedure, which includes nuts and tomato skins. I had to put a note on the almonds because I didn’t trust myself to remember. And then I had a “last supper” of tomato/almond salad. Ha!


Wednesday, August 13th
My daily walk – I mowed.


I had to laugh at my Map My Walk app on my phone – someone asked if I’d been chased by a bee. I promise my mowing is much more orderly than this appears!


Thursday, August 14th
Our daisies are almost done – I spent some time deadheading them today. And startling a toad.


I also finished the last bit of mowing that I didn’t do the day before. Once again I’m laughing at my app – gymnastics? Really?


My daily walk. Saw this busted up television set with a pottery jug down inside it. What the what?


Friday, August 15th
Goldfinch!!


My daily walk.


Saturday, August 16th   
Dr. M’s school had a family event at the Columbus zoo today. We ate lunch with everyone & then spent three hours enjoying the zoo – walked 5 miles! If you want to see pictures of the animals go here – Dr. M did a great post. We had a wonderful time and are already talking about when we’ll go back.


Have a great week!

  1. Love the goldfinch! Could that "pottery jug" actually be part of the television? (I can't see it too well in the photo.)

    1. No it was actually a jug - very bizarre! I was going to go try to pull it out, but the TV was gone the next day.

  2. Ditch that test until tomato season is OVER. That's just madness. Your last set of photos gave me an idea for tonight's dinner: hot dogs and mac salad, Rick's favourites. He'll be thrilled. Thanks!

    1. I know - it was crazy. And I couldn't have corn either. Insanity. But it's happening today & we do still have plenty of tomatoes :)

  3. Nice little Japanese (?) warriors on horseback. There must be a story that goes with them.

    2. More fantasy than Japanese. They are part of a range of toys, with castles and dragons and all sorts of diabolical weapons. I bought them because they were cheap enough and close enough to Medieval knights for us to hurl tennis balls at on Medieval Monday last spring. One of my students had built a small trebuchet, and I had built a torsion catapult. We were defending our city against the Crusaders, lol!

  4. I should have those warriors guard my stash of chocolate. Oh heck, what am I saying...the only guarding it would need is from ME.

    I still think that jug inside the broken TV held a Jeanie.

    1. I am the same way about chocolate (as you well know) :)

    2. So, like Barbara Eden Jeanie? Aw man!

  5. Hope your test goes well and you are soon back to fresh corn and tomatoes.

  6. Have I mentioned lately how much I enjoy these posts? Chased by a bee...that made me laugh.

  7. I don't know which are may favorites....the flowers...or the bird. Chased by a bee made my day. Thank you for continuing this....I love seeing your life.

  8. Oh, I love that goldfinch too. And bravo to you for staying with your exercise regime so faithfully. I can't wait until the weight-lifting begins!

  9. That little Carolina Wren reminds me that attitude is everything. I can't believe that brazen little squirrel eating your tomato. Too funny.

    The collage of flowers is really beautiful.

    They didn't restrict my eating before the colonoscopy until the 24 hours before. At least I don't remember it if they did.
