2018 Project 365 – Week Four

January has lasted forever; yet, conversely, it has plumb flown by. Frankly, I’m getting a little sea sick!
Sunday, January 21st             
I’ve been continuing to sing our Christmas cantata to warm up my voice on the way to the nursing home on Sundays. I figure I already know all the words… And, really, shouldn’t we keep Christmas in our hearts all year long? No?

Monday, January 22nd                         
I didn’t participate in Moogly’s 2017 afghan crochet along, but I suffered withdrawal pangs & decided to make a blanket this year. This will be my 8th Moogly afghan!

Tuesday, January 23rd                                           
My question to Facebook: Is it just me, or do these glasses make me look nerdlier than usual? Or maybe it’s the fashionable hairstyle. 

Wednesday, January 24th                                 
I wore a SKIRT, and PANTYHOSE, and HEELS to work for an important meeting that got rescheduled for Friday. On Friday I wore jeans. Ha!

Thursday, January 25th                               
The moon!

Friday, January 26th                       
I found the perfect place to stash a Dr. Pepper flavored jellybean! (Full disclosure – the jelly bean rattled when I walked so I ate it about 5 minutes after taking these pictures.)

Saturday, January 27th                           
Go State! (They won!)

Shoreacres sent me two boxes of yarn that her mother had. I was very excited, but then I figured out that the yarn is embroidery yarn & most of it is in 35 inch sections. Never fear – Magic Knot to the rescue! I’m creating skeins of yarn that will have knots in it, but that won’t matter for the project I have in mind. Can’t wait to get started on it!

I went shopping yesterday for new shoes and/or pants (I’ve lost a bit of weight & my pants are dragging on the ground). I went to precisely TWO stores & got disgusted & came home. Shopping is not my super power. What super power do you not have?


  1. January has lasted forever; yet, conversely, it has plumb flown by.

    I was thinking the same thing. I do take solace in the idea that at least 2017 is over. Personally, I'm just waiting for November, it will not get here soon enough.

  2. I'd wondered whether the yarn would be useful for you, or if you'd just pass it on to someone else. I'm glad you found a way to make some of it work -- why knot? :-)

  3. That yarn would drive me, nuts. I'd, not have the patience for it.

    I did a little wardrobe-refresher shopping as well, and like you, was stunned at how dowdy and yucky the offerings were overall. It took lots of hunting, which is not generally my superpower either. Especially when I stick to stores like TJ Maxx and Marshall's, where it is required (I hate spending lots of cash on clothes). Try again!

  4. I keep Christmas cds in my car all year long.

  5. I bought a greetings card the other day (as yet unsent to anyone) that proclaimed 'I don't sing in the car - I perform!'

  6. hasn't gone by fast enough here as just about the whole month has been frozen.

  7. The last time I wore pantyhose was for a job interview three years ago! I still have the pantyhose, but not that job. Heh. Congratulations on the weight loss! I hate shopping for clothes.

    My superpower that I don't have is picking the right lane in the grocery store. I should just wear a shirt that says, "Don't get in line behind me."

  8. That's funny about the jellybean!

  9. Those glasses make you look sexy. (Don't tell Dr. M I said this.)

  10. Congratulations on the weight loss. Good for you.
    I like your sunglasses. They look very cute on you. I haven't visited a single blog in quite a while. I've missed it. I finally started a new blog. Please stop by. I don't blog at that link up there, but for some reason, I can't comment with my new URL on your blog. I know it has something to do with blogger and wordpress not liking each other. :)

  11. As you are taking enough interest in my new story to comment, I thought it was only fair to 'come on over' for a look. I am afraid that the shot with the clip-on sunglasses looks like the 'just-before-the-crash' frame of a movie. Please be careful. I need you!


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