2015 Project 365 – Week Fifteen

This week had some grim & stormy bits, but ended up being glorious. It’s my favorite time of year & I’m trying to enjoy it as much as possible. Which is why this post is going up so late (and might not even get posted until Monday evening – we’ll see how far I get – ha!).

Sunday, April 5th     
Happy Easter!

It was a nice day so I went for a walk along the river.

Monday, April 6th  
Things Dr. M saw today.

The moon!

I felt poorly all day Monday – I was afraid that I was getting the flu (it’s been making the rounds at church). So I wore my Christmas jammies while I gazelled to make me feel better. And I was fine on Tuesday.

Tuesday, April 7th         
Saw our “puppy” Tuesday morning – sorry for the terrible low light through the door iPhone picture. Silly groundhog.

Fat cardinal on a gloomy day.

I was laughing because I researched something & emailed it to Dr. M while I gazelled – it’s fun to be able to multitask while nagging :) – ha!

Wednesday, April 8th  
Dr. M pretending to nap at school. I love his tiny owl earrings.

I took these at choir practice. The Easter flowers are really opening up.

Thursday, April 9th    

I laughed and laughed at this picture Dr. M took – ha!

My daily walk – after a thunderstorm.

I finished a new afghan square – this one took me FOREVER! It took a while for me to figure out how to start, and then when I finished it, it was too big so I had to rip out two rows. Sheesh.

Friday, April 10th    
I was going to do the 10 on 10 today, but these were the only two pictures I took. Oops.

I made two more squares – it took less time to do these two than it did to make the one from yesterday. Nice to know that I can learn from my mistakes :)

Saturday, April 11th            
Beautiful day! Dr. M & I worked around the yard, cleaning up the raised beds and mowing. Dr. M also painted the fire pit.

We have quite a variety of wildlife in our back yard.

Made the 4th square of this pattern (remember, I’m making four different blankets, so these squares don’t actually go together). Later this week I'll post pictures of the other squares I've made so far. You've seen some of them, but I finally have enough so that you can see what each blanket might look like.

Hope everyone has a great week!


  1. Silly groundhog.

    Not sure how his species forecast for the end of winter held up. Down here in the South temperatures have bounced around a little too much for me.

  2. Those crocheted squares look complicated! I'm impressed with your improving skilz!

    For being in a highly populated area, you sure do have a lot of wildlife in your yard :)

    We're anticipating thunderstorms and rain all week, but the sun is shining now. I should go walk while I can...

  3. You do have some flowers after all -- if not in your yard, at least in your immediate vicinity. :)

    Love the chickens! The repainted fire pit looks great too!

  4. um, your fourth square does not look like the other three. just thought I would point that out. the tulips and daff are beautiful.

  5. I love the napping shot. Loved the flowers, birds,....I have enjoyed sitting out in the mornings and watching the birds. We have a little family of bluebirds with a nest in our church bird house. They are most entertaining.

  6. That moon pic was from Holy Week...waxing toward the Blood Moon eclipse. Sorry...I had made it my cover pic on Fb and thus deceived you ;-)

  7. Nothing says spring better than a few rows of daffodils.

  8. What a beautiful array of flowers and birds, and what a blue sky. There's nothing like spring, and nothing like comfy jammies when you're not feeling well.

  9. Your "emailing while gazelling" picture reminded me of a woman I used to see in the gym - she would run (yes, run!) on the treadmill while watching a sitcom on her iPad and texting on her iPhone, all at the same time.

    Chickens are just hilarious to watch.

  10. One heck of a lot of work has been expended here Dana. Some unique photo shots and especially the one of Dr M. Great stuff, all the best, Phil.

  11. Fav photo--close-up of Dr. M.
    Fav collage--daffs and critters!
    Fav activity--riverwalk!

    Love your blog.

  12. There is something about watching chickens walking around that always makes me laugh. They just look so busy and irritated.


Thanks for stopping by - I'd love to hear what you have to say!
