2015 Project 365 – Week Thirty-one

Oh it’s AUGUST already. Sigh. Back when we lived in an apartment I didn’t care a great deal whether the days were short or long, but now I so resent the losing of the light. I know, I know, it’s still summer… but…
Sunday, July 26th   
Sunday Squirrel.

I was so VERY grateful to a couple of my book club friends (a fierce mother-daughter team) for finding this yarn for me! It’s one of the colors I’m using for one of the afghans I’m making & I was fretting about it being discontinued. They were on a mission to find it & they succeeded. Woot!

Pinkie found a friend… If you’d like to see more of these shots, plus some others from around the house, check out Dr. M’s blog here. He has some lovely melancholy thoughts there.

Dr M saw this killdeer in a parking lot. Silly bird.

The mail room staff at work nominated me for an award! I was so touched (and frankly amazed because I kind of have a witchy reputation at work – ha!).

The moon!

Bambi’s mom.

Square #1 of Pattern #15. It’s damp because this pattern was very “curly” when I finished it so I had to go ahead & block it to get a good picture of it.           

Thursday, July 30th      
Our neighbor’s volunteer sunflowers, plus the King of the Hummingbirds, surveying his realm.

These doves – they make me laugh. Apparently one of them pretty much landed on the other one. I can imagine him saying, “Hey baby, come here often?” And then she just slides away… Ha!

Around the yard…

The moon!

Saturday, August 1st  
The last of our daylilies, Rose of Sharon, and tomatoes!

Square #2 of Pattern #15.

Went to Heart & Hands again this week & crocheted a preemie hat. It’s pretty tiny.

We ordered a banner to put outside our church. I love love love it! It’s a product of the UCC church – thank goodness they’re sharing! I’m gonna order a tshirt too. Go here to check it out.

Hope everyone has a great week!


  1. I like your banner, too. It's very Pope Francis-esque.

  2. Once again, I love that hummingbird shot near the top. You guys are great at getting hummingbird shots.

    Congrats on your award! :)

  3. That banner is perfect! :)
    Its amazing that heads really fit in those tiny hats.
    YIPEE for yarn!!!

  4. Are your hummingbirds territorial? One of ours (I think it's always the same one) is a positive terror, driving the others away when they come in for a drink or a rest in HIS tree.

    1. YES! They fight like Snoopy and the Red Baron over turf. The little male thinks he's the king of all of Mr. Ken's feeders (he has at least four). The female likes to hang out in our's more peaceful. The intensity picks up the closer it gets to migration time.

  5. Another lot of work here Dana. The appraisal form, or whatever it's called is something I'd hate to have to use. Thank goodness all that sort of stuff is long, long gone pour moi.

  6. I'm with you in lamenting the shortening daylight hours. I can tell quite a difference when I take Lucy out at night. Love your week.

  7. The colors in that third shot are incredible.

  8. Once again you both delight us with your eye for color and beauty all around you!
    Wonderful words of praise. Congrats on the award!

  9. You and a witchy reputation at work? I don't believe it! Congratulations on the award. It sounds like you have some really great co-workers.

    I'm always surprised that people start complaining in August about the end of summer. As a kid, I was used to summer vacations starting as late as August 8, so August in my mind is still in the middle of summer.

  10. We saw a hummingbird last night and felt bad because we didn't put a feeder out this year. Our minds were elsewhere, but next year...

  11. wonderful week in pictures. I'm loving your crocheted squares. makes me want to crochet again, as if I had time.


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