Throwback Thursday

After a long day of working in the fields and avoiding the paparazzi, our heroine & her cohort in crime settle down with a nice cold bottle of chocolate milk.





Thanks to my Aunt Mimi for finding the pictures & my Cousin Juicy for scanning them & posting them on Facebook :)

Wordy Wednesday - The Bug on the Move Edition

I'm in Reston, Virginia for a company training. I flew in today & enjoyed a nice room service dinner this evening. I'm just realizing that I had quite a solitary day - driving to the Dayton airport, sitting there for 4 1/2 hours, one hour flight, navigating the vast cavern that is the Washington Dulles airport, riding in the shuttle to the hotel, sitting in my room... All by myself. And you know what? Unless I'm traveling with Dr. M that's just how I like it! I finished one book & started another one. I played on my computer. I was totally inside my head. Which is good because tomorrow I get to meet two different bloggers (for breakfast & dinner) & in between I'll be with a bunch of coworkers. By then I'll be ready to talk to people!

I didn't take any pictures in the airport or on the plane (what kind of blogger am I anyway?). So this is all you get.

My "I'm about to leave on a trip!" selfie

Room service dinner - I always get room service at least once per trip.
Apple pie & ice cream - yum! Room service calories don't count :)


My ginormous bed! I think I'm going to sleep diagonally across it. Dr. M says, how is this different than usual?

So glad I remembered to throw in a comfy long sleeved shirt. Even if I do look a little bit fashion challenged in all my layers.

2014 Project 365 – Week Eight

This week is all about the selfie, apparently. Ha!
Sunday, February 16th     
I finished a winter set for my own self.


Later that day I was changing out of my church clothes & my hair got caught in my shirt. Made me spend some time trying to decide if I wanted to get a bob cut. I decided NOT.


Tomorrow’s lunch – spinach with grilled chicken, chickpeas, tomatoes, peppers, onions & cucumber. There’s also an apple & some cottage cheese for a snack.


Dr. M took better pictures of the moon this week, but this one made me think of the Death Star – ha!


Monday, February 17th
My valentine tulips…


Tuesday, February 18th            
Dr. M saw some wild turkeys in his travels today.


Wednesday, February 19th
The moon!


Thursday, February 20th    
Frozen pond.


Cows!


This one’s just like the Abbey Road picture, if George had decided to lay down in the road, right?


My third selfie of the week – after my haircut. I know you can’t tell, but it’s a bit shorter & there are some layers in there.


Friday, February 21st
Lambs!


Saturday, February 22nd     
My Valentine tulips looking lacy…


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!

Two year old Dr. M.

Now, really, could you have denied this face anything?

2014 Project 365 – Week Seven

Remember how I was hoping that this week would be much better? Well, it was better, but it is still pretty much winter around here. Yes, I know it’s February. Your point?

Sunday, February 9th     
I finally found a button for that scarf I made the other week.


Monday, February 10th
Pinky agrees that it should be spring now.


Tuesday, February 11th            
I got behind this very smug Prius. It’s a terrible picture, so if you can’t read it, the license plate says, “52 MPG CT.”


The moon!



Wednesday, February 12th
At least I waited until Wednesday to show you some S&*w. Heh.


Thursday, February 13th    
Mallards in flight – what a cool picture! (You know Dr. M took it, right?)


The moon! It’s been cloudy here this week so getting a moon shot has been tricky.


Friday, February 14th   
Happy Valentine’s Day! As a gift to me, Dr. M got this great picture of one of my favorite landscapes.


The campus herd.


We saw about six male cardinals out back – they’re so funny how they try to be all macho.


Saturday, February 15th    
Yesterday we got more than three more inches of that white stuff. This is Mount Patio (all the snow that we’ve removed from the patio). Dr. M had a different name for it, but this is a family blog!


Critters.


My Valentine tulips – aren’t they lovely?


Have a great week!

Throwback Thursday


Little did the happy couple know that one year later a major drama would unfold when Uncle David accidentally put the napkins (embossed with a golden calla lily and “Dana and Mike December 15, 1990”) in the back of his car, causing panic to ensue at the reception site.

2014 Project 365 – Week Six

What a week! Dr. M fell one day & has been really sore, and I spent most of the day yesterday at a funeral. We were pretty pitiful. And we got more of that four letter word that I’m tired of typing. Here’s hoping that this coming week is much better!

Sunday, February 2nd   
Instead of watching that “other” game, Dr. M & I enjoyed the Puppy Bowl.


Monday, February 3rd
The moon!


Tuesday, February 4th            
Geese in the sky…


Dr. M took some fabulous pictures today. Here is one. Go here to check out the rest.


I saw this cool license plate today. A stretch goal for most of us, right?


Wednesday, February 5th
Dr. M’s caption for this photo is, “How long oh Lord?”


Thursday, February 6th    
Dr. M did some meandering today.






Friday, February 7th   
Part of my lunch. The other part was a veggie burger and jello :)


The Weekly Squirrel.


The moon!


Saturday, February 8th    
This cardinal can’t BELIEVE what’s going on over there!


Yep, it’s a riot all right.


The bulletin from today’s funeral. Betsy’s light shone brightly and she will definitely be missed!


Have a great week!
