2015 Project 365 – Week Seventeen

This week there’s a moon in the sky! And lots of flowers… It looks like spring around here, even though the temps have been very low (in the 30s a couple of nights!).

Sunday, April 19th     
Had a meeting after church today & noticed B’s lovely yarn bowl – hand made by our rector’s husband. He does lovely work!


Dinner – tuna, dill chips, & potato chips on rye bread. Yum!


Dr. M’s first toad sighting of the year!


Monday, April 20th  
Fort Pansy.


Crabapple tree in the neighbor’s yard – so pretty!


My daily walk - lovely evening...


The moon!


Tuesday, April 21st          
Beautiful sky today!


The moon (and friend)…



Wednesday, April 22nd   
I got a haircut today – not very different, but off of my neck, which is very important this time of year! I laughed at my attempts to get a picture of the back – ha!


My daily walk – down to the UPS box. It’s a nice little trek – a little over a mile and a half round trip.


Dr. M drives by some really pretty houses this time of year.


The moon!



Thursday, April 23rd    
I love this picture that Dr. M took – so pretty.


My daily walk – gazelling again. I was laughing at all of my various tennis shoes. And I wear all of them!


The moon!


Friday, April 24th    
Another beautiful photo by Dr. M.


Camouflaged campus deer.


Saturday, April 25th            
It was pouring rain most of the day, so I sat around & did this (well, except when I was putting clothes into the washer and dryer – ha!).


Finished up three of the four squares in this pattern (the first two are pinned to the blocking mats - the third one hasn't been blocked yet).


Bedraggled backyard critters.


After the rain passed by I decided to take a quick walk around the neighborhood.


               

Hope everyone has a great week!

2015 Project 365 – Week Sixteen

This week is all about Fort Pansy – although I don’t have many pictures of it here. Go to Dr. M’s blog to check it out – here and here.

Sunday, April 12th     
On my way to church I noticed a whisker growing out of my face. For heaven’s sake. Do they make magnifying mirrors with a “bright as the sun” feature?


Our back yard.


I took a walk at the fen. A lovely day!


At Christmas time we replaced our non-refillable oil candles in all the windows at church. But we didn’t have any way of knowing which of them still had oil in them - & I didn’t want to just throw them away with oil in them, so I brought them home to finish burning them. Dr. M. made a nice ritual of it.


Monday, April 13th  
Dr. M found some flowers today. :)


My daily walk, where I met Baby the dog. She wasn’t very happy with the thunder we were hearing!


Tuesday, April 14th         
Cows!


Dr. M brought home some sunshine today!


Wednesday, April 15th  
Squirrel – a juvenile I think.


I videoed a song during choir practice – just to see how we sounded. This is a screen shot of the video. You can't say I don't open my mouth wide enough when I sing :)


Thursday, April 16th    
Our maple tree is budding out, the primrose is blooming again (although some critter loves to eat on it), and Fort Pansy got the addition of some tulips.


Friday, April 17th    
My daily walk.


The next square in the series – this is pattern number 8. Quite a few ends to weave in!


Saturday, April 18th            
I went to set up the altar at church & turned on my walking app just for giggles – ha!


Tulips! And also some crocuses – Fort Pansy is quite lovely!
               



Hope everyone has a great week!

Afghan Update

I am so mentally exhausted right now - too much going on with work and church responsibilities - I'm having to brain a lot. There's only so much brain to start with... Anyway, as promised, here are the four blankets with the squares I've done so far (except for the ones in the last post). One has two colors, one has three colors, and two of them have four colors. There will be 24 squares per blanket once I'm done - sometime next December. It's been a lot of fun so far!
