2021 Project 365 – Week Five

This was a pretty low key week in the Bug Household. I ate weird combinations of food. I crocheted. The Moon Man made an appearance. It’s January.
 
Sunday, January 24th  
Dr. M made a very chunky spaghetti sauce with some of our lingering Misfits veggies (carrots, zucchini, peppers), some canned tomatoes, and some leftover store bought sauce which apparently was 90% garlic. It was VERY tasty & it was nice to not have to worry about vampires.
 

Monday, January 25th
Dr. M’s dad got his first COVID vaccination. Yay!
 

Tuesday, January 26th  
Daddy & Sue got their vaccines today, but you don’t get a photo of that. Instead, here is a lovely picture of me rolling my eyes so hard at my audiobook that I was in danger of having a traffic accident.
 

Here is one of the weird things I ate. The leftover pizza, while tasty, just seemed very heavy to me so I decided to zing it up with sliced apples. It was really good!
 

Wednesday, January 27th  
Leftover pizza, take two. This time I mixed up a little salad with apples, feta, spinach, & Italian dressing, and dumped that on my pizza. While it was also tasty, logistically it was impossible to eat. If the crust hadn’t been so crispy I could have rolled the slices up & sort of had a pizza taco situation.
 

Took another stretching class. We were supposed to use a tennis ball, but in the moment this was the only thing we could find – ha! I think it’s hilarious that we have a Washington Nationals plushie when we’re not really Nationals fans.

Twilight…
 

I finished my wall hanging! So glad to have had the Make Don’t Break challenge to get me in gear this month.
 

The moon! (Slightly past full because of pouring rain Wednesday night.)
 

Friday, January 29th
Since I finished my wall hanging, and since I was still waiting on a skein of yarn for my temperature blanket, I started a new project. I was playing around with color combos & decided that using the off white worked best. This one will be a can cozy. Maybe.
 

Saturday, January 30th  
Temperature blanket update. My chartreuse yarn came! It’s either going to be hideous or a “pop of color.” I kind of like it – looks like spring to me. Which means we shouldn’t have had this temperature (51 degrees) in January. Of course, last year we had about 5 days of 60+ degree temps in the middle of January, so what do I know? I spent a little time rearranging my warm color ranges. As most of you know, the last time I made a temperature blanket I had a LOT of orange. I’m trying to avoid that this time. We’ll see how it goes. Also, down here in NC I’m thinking I won’t end up using my coolest colors (for average temps 30 degrees & lower). Now if I was still in Ohio...
 


I’ve been feeling a little blue this week. With my personality, when I feel blue I tend to just crawl inside myself and stuff all that blue in a corner where it can be ignored. Then eat some chocolate. This time I’ve tried to “sit with my feelings” (whatever the heck that means), and I have to say that I Am Not A Fan. I mean, I don’t even want to eat chocolate when I do that. Who needs that stress in their life? How about you – are you a feeler or a stuffer?

  1. I love the chartreuse! Back in the 1950s, chartreuse, gray, maroon, and forest green were the colors. For a while, I enjoyed a family bath done in chartreuse and maroon. My parents' bedroom was deep forest green and gray. It was such a big deal that whole sets of dishes and such were done in those colors -- like these.

    2. Ooo - those are the kind of dishes that I wanted when we got married. Alas, we were too late...

  2. What was your audiobook, and why was it causing you to roll your eyes?!

    1. Agatha Raisin and the Terrible Tourist. It's book six in the series. I enjoy the mysteries, but I'm about tired of how much energy Agatha gives to chasing her neighbor romantically. Ha!

  3. I'm a feeler. I don't believe in ignoring my emotions. It's unhealthy. They just manifest someplace else.

    I won't tell you about Ohio's weather right now. But I'm feeling Less Than Chipper about it. ;-)

    1. Yes, your weather does not bear discussing. So sorry! (Really, I know how lucky I am.)

  4. Sounds like the way I make spaghetti sauce also - whatever is in the kitchen! I'm a feeler having learned the hard way that stuffing things inside can lead to bad things happening (heart attack, for instance).

    1. Yeah, I should probably do more paying attention to my feelings. I actually am more intuitive than I give myself credit for because I mostly want to just ignore everything.

  5. Good news about Dr. M's dad and your dad and Sue. Wish we could get ours. We're on a waiting list, but no clue as to when we might actually get stuck. The veggie spaghetti is right up my alley. I seem to be obsessed with trying eggplant and pasta lately. I'll let you know.
    I used to be a stuffer, but I try to be a feeler now.

    1. I think being a feeler is more healthy, but it definitely doesn't feel natural to me (see what I did there? ha!).

    1. Agatha Raisin and the Terrible Tourist - it's the 6th book in the series & there are some themes that I am DONE with (also, I'm already listening to the 7th book - hahahaha!). And yes, most people think it's the Walgreens emblem. Ha!

  7. Moon, amazing!
    Spaghetti sauce, delish!
    Array of yarn, enviable!

    Have a great rest of the week!
