2019 Project 365 – Week Seven

It was just another week in February in North Carolina – cold, tepid, slightly warm, cold… I’m glad we haven’t had the snow that other folks have, but I’m feeling a little bit of spring fever!
Sunday, February 10th                                   
This is definitely the Season of Stoup in the Bug household. Dr. M makes a big pot on Sundays & then I take it for lunch all week. This one was a spicy black eyed pea one – yum!

Monday, February 11th                
Tulips! So pretty – a bit of spring.

Tuesday, February 12th                                               
No picture.

Wednesday, February 13th                                              
This is my hallelujah face after my annual squishing – woot!

Thursday, February 14th                                                 
Happy Valentine’s Day!

I have a friend who locked her keys in her car while getting gas. I sent her this picture of me holding my keys while getting gas. I have been SUPER PARANOID ever since that time I accidentally bumped the lock with my hip & locked my only set of keys in the car, so you will often see me carrying my keys around

Saturday, February 16th
Dr. M built a lovely fire which we enjoyed while watching hockey.

I’m currently sitting in the living room writing this post while Dr. M is in the kitchen working on this week’s stoup. I might complain about the weather, or any number of other piddly things, but I do believe I’m living my best life right now! What are you grateful for this week?


  1. life is good. and my cook is in the kitchen too.

  2. I love it when I have soup to take to work for lunches all week. Your Sunday soup looks like my kind of soup - I'm a big fan of beans, peas, and lentils. Sadly, if I don't cook, it doesn't happen.

  3. My Mike keeps us supplied with stoups too!
    This week I am grateful for safety in the hazardous weather conditions of this week.

  4. Mmmmm...cornbread! What on earth is your annual "squishing"? I have no idea what that means.

    1. Mammogram - aren't you glad you don't have to know what it is? Ha!

  5. I locked my keys in my car on my very first day of college. I watched my hand close the door as I saw my keys still in the steering column and just couldn't stop. I felt like an idiot, and such a sense of hopelessness! I'm grateful I haven't done that in a very, very, VERY long time.

  6. I'm grateful that the sun is shining, after daysdaysdays of rain and fog. I guess we're going to move back into rain tomorrow for several days, but who cares? The sun's shining! And yesterday, despite the rain, I took my trusty camera into the wilds and found dewberries blooming! and the first wild iris of the year! and I suprised two hoverflies mating on the petal of a dewberry flower. I love my macro lens!

    1. Oh -- and I never, ever leave my keys in the car, since I discovered the dang thing was capable of locking itself while just sitting around on a country road.

  7. I'm grateful we are no longer in WI where they have really been bombarded with snow since Christmas. I've never locked myself out of the car, but my toddler son locked me out. That was when the car seats were in the front. I buckled him up and put my purse on the floor (with keys inside). A dedicated button-pusher, he locked all the doors with one button. Everyone on the street was in panic but I didn't worry. I knew the little guy sooner or later would pull the button so I grabbed the door handle and sure enough, he pulled up the button and I opened the door.

  8. I don't have car keys any more just a key fob that connects to a button on the outside.

  9. I'm grateful every day that H started cooking a few years ago. We share the cooking most of the time, but he sometimes goes solo. It's good to know that he can do it if necessary.


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