2018 Project 365 – Week Twenty-five


This post is all about crochet & flowers. You know, the usual. And lookit! I am posting this On Time!! I am amazed at myself. Do you know why I’m able to do this? Because the other day I asked Dr. M to delete a game off of my iPad. I’m not saying it was an addiction, but I think it was probably an addiction.

Before we get to the flowers & the crochet, let’s take a moment to wish my dad a very happy Father’s Day!


I took Sue and him out to eat & got myself this very elaborate dessert. It was worth every single calorie.              


While I was stuffing myself, Dr. M was home sick and taking pictures of daylilies.


The first crochet picture of the week.

Wildflowers!


I started Weight Watchers AGAIN. I had lost a good bit of weight over the last year, but since I started my new job it’s creeping back on. Trying to stop that trend in its tracks!


Another day, another square…

My mother’s birthday. I wrote a nice note to her on Facebook talking about how she would have been amazed & astounded to be 78 years old. And she would have been amazed & astounded because it was only her 76th birthday. Oops. Sorry Momcat!


Daylilies – these are from our neighbor’s yard. They are doing so well this year!


Square square square… blah blah blah

We had leftover peas & I decided that they’d make a fine midmorning snack.


This made me laugh – I’m always slicing the right thumb of these things, but this time I apparently cut quite a swath along the left wrist. They still work though.

Went to Michaels to pick something up for work and was VERY confused!


Pictures of furniture at work through the week.

Some squares need more blocking than others!



I can’t believe that it’s summer now and that we’ll be on vacation in a little less than a week! Furniture industry companies typically close the week of July 4th and the week between Christmas & New Year’s Day. It’s a new world for me – I’m used to taking vacations whenever I want to. On the other hand, since the whole company is closed I don’t have to worry about work piling up on my desk while I’m gone.

Are you ready for summer? Is it too hot where you are? I gotta say, this has been quite the heat wave!

2018 Project 365 – Week Twenty-four


I am writing this post the same day that I wrote the one for week 23, but I didn’t want to overwhelm you guys with pictures, so I’m scheduling it to post later in the week. You’re welcome.

More wildflowers. Just settle back & prepare to be inundated all summer. We’re just too pleased with ourselves about our little wildflower garden. Ha!

Square of the week…

Dr. M looked out the window & saw these goldfinches in the wildflowers!



Thursday, June 14th       
Guess what? More wildflowers!


A couple of pieces from work – some sort of double-sided couch and a headboard.


Friday, June 15th                               
It was a messy bun, talking to inanimate objects kind of day (I told the staple box it had led a hard life). 


Wildflowers!


Dr. M has been watching bluebirds land on this light post for a while now. Today he finally got a picture.

I had breakfast with some of my oldest longtime friends. The four of us had a great time talking nonstop for two and a half hours. We need to do this more often!



I have nothing new to say here, since I just wrote my other post about 20 minutes ago. So, why don’t you tell me something interesting?


Nearly Wordless Wednesday
