2017 Project 365 – Week Eleven

I just noted that I promised pictures of the house this week. Oops. Maybe next week?
Sunday, March 12th       
I had the vague notion of getting up & going to church today, but what with the time change & staying up to read a book until 3:00 a.m. (or was it 4:00 a.m.?) I didn’t quite make it. Turns that was for the best, because we had a little bit of snow. I keep saying, “OHIO QUIT FOLLOWING ME!”


Emptied out some more boxes & corralled all of our bandages. As I said on Facebook – we’re pretty much ready for any wound situation.


Started working on the new temperature scarf, and boy did I make a MESS! This yarn is in hanks, which is different from skeins & really (really!) should be wound into cakes before trying to use it. If all of that was Greek to you, don’t worry – I’m planning a blog post this week about it. In any case, I stopped my work immediately & ordered a yarn swift & yarn winder. Crocheting will recommence once I get this yarn into some semblance of order.

This year’s March Madness bracket. It is already rather sad (stupid Villanova), but still makes the tournament more fun for me.


Tuesday, March 14th                            
This is really terrible – humor at about the 12 year old boy level – but I couldn’t help it. After all of the microwave spying on us kerfuffle, I read this on Andy Borowitz’s Facebook page, “Question: can you be spied on by a Hot Pocket? Asking for an idiot.” And immediately went to take a picture of this box in our freezer (Dr. M’s emergency rations). Should I be worried?  


I’ve been reading Water to Wine, by Brian Zahnd, & had to laugh at this sideways reference to Guns, Germs & Steel, a documentary I may have watched more than once as the wife of a historian.


Wednesday, March 15th                   
Turned on the TV & there was a Cincinnati Reds spring training game. Also, it was in the 20s most of the day. I’ve got my eye on you, Ohio – you just stay up there north of Kentucky, ok?


Thursday, March 16th                    
My weekly visit to the post office.


Friday, March 17th     
Worked on a new dish cloth pattern today. Frogged it about four times, and it’s still not exactly right. But I might try it again. If I do, I’ll make it much smaller – it’s about 10 inches square, which is MUCH too big for a dish cloth in my opinion.


One of the things that didn’t make the move with us was our ironing board. We ran out of room, and I iron about 3 times a year. But here I found myself ironing a tablecloth because we invited my dad & Sue over for dinner on Saturday. Ha!


Saturday, March 18th       
Dr. M stalked some birds today while I got groceries & cleaned the house.


Then later, he cooked a fabulous meal. We had a great time with Daddy & Sue, but of course I didn’t take any pictures of our lovely table or the food, or of the people. Here’s a picture of the aftermath. We had so much fun we might do it again!



Have a great week!

  1. Now that you've moved to a state with no major league team maybe I can interest you in the mighty ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS!!!

    1. Well, I might would consider it, but the time zone issue might be a deal killer.

  3. The view from you deck is beautiful. I can't believe you left Ohio and ended up with snow in NC.
    That yarn is a mess, but I love the colors
    My aunt used to crochet those dish cloths for me. So nice.
    I bet your dad is so happy you've moved back home. I hope you enjoy having family close by. You probably will sometimes and not sometimes. :) Such is life.

    1. We have definitely been socializing with my dad since we came home. And I've been going to church with a cousin. It's been nice (so far - ha!).

  4. I agree that you have a beautiful view from your deck. Can't wait to see pictures in the spring.

  5. Snow looks so pretty...when it's someone else's snow.

    The "aftermath" picture indicates that it was a great dinner!

    1. It was pretty - from inside the house.

  6. I agree: the yarns you've chosen from your Mess, look lovely together.

    Ohio is NOT following you. I have Zero Snow in my yard in NEO. Or, if it did follow you, it has decided to stay. HOORAY HOORAY!

    1. Whew! I'm glad to know that Ohio is staying put. :)

  7. I know I told you we brought our ironing board although a I never iron or when I do (usually to press a seam when I'm sewing for the grandkids) I just lay a towel on the table. the ironing board lives in the garage without a pad.

    1. Yeah, next time I'm putting a towel on the table - that cloth was sliding everywhere. And I MIGHT use starch!

  8. Holy cow! You certainly ARE prepared for any bandage emergency. I don't think we have any bandages at all! I may call you if we need one!

    Your dish cloth is way too nice to be used as a dish cloth. :)

    1. See, we kept forgetting what we had, so we would buy more...

  9. Can you be spied on by a Hot Pocket? Don't know but if that is true they know all my family's secrets. Both my son and daughter live of those things. I like them myself but my kids have let it be known I have to buy my own supply, they will not share.
