2021 Project 365 – Week Forty-one

We had another pretty quiet week. I’ve been rereading some old favorites, crocheting, and trying to get to bed at a reasonable hour. Also, twice this week I actually got up and treadmilled before work. Who am I?
Sunday, October 3rd   
Sunday stories: 1. It’s October dangit - I’m wearing a scarf! 2. I thought this said, “…deep commitment fresh new linens of faith…” 3. World Communion Sunday! Did you partake in the Eucharist today? 4. Looking like fall in the Wendy’s parking lot. 5. Looking like fall as I race home with chicken sandwiches, while listening to the @sharonsaysso podcast about the Iowa Caucuses…

Monday, October 4th     
Dr. M is ready for the playoffs! (which didn’t actually start until Friday).

Tuesday, October 5th    
Stopped by to see Daddy & Sue (and work a puzzle). Wondered around outside with my dad, got harassed by my brother’s family’s dogs, worked on the puzzle (they’d left the corner behind my head for me to work), and then saw a lovely soybean field on my way home.

Wednesday, October 6th    
The photo on the left showed up on my memories (from 4 years ago). Made me laugh because I was wearing the exact same outfit – ha! I posted this on the socials saying that I was thinking about whacking my hair off. The majority of folks said that I should leave it long, and so did Dr. M. So my hair is safe…for now!

Thursday, October 7th     
I finally blocked the shawl I’ve been working on. It was a little bit like magic – when I finished the shawl it was a good bit bigger than the other version, but still not as big as the pattern said it should be. But after I wet blocked it, it was almost exactly the right size. I am very excited to do a photo shoot once it dries. Stay tuned!

Friday, October 8th   
Here is where I am these days – taking photos of things that are almost empty so I can remember to buy them.

Saturday, October 9th  
I made a banana & peanut butter & mayo sandwich today & was a little optimistic about how much banana two slices of bread could handle. I took one bite, banana (and mayo & peanut butter) squished out everywhere, & I got a fork. What a (delicious) mess.

Tomorrow we are heading to the beach! I’m very excited. You know there will be plenty of photos, so go ahead and block off some time next week to check out my post. I won’t ask what fun thing you have planned for the week because that seems like gloating. Ha!


  1. Oh, my gosh. Peanut butter and banana's just fine, but mayo? I'd sooner try the fluffernutter -- heard of that one? Peanut butter and marshmallow fluff on white bread. I gather it's a New England thing. I'm still thinking about whether I want to spring for the marshmallow fluff.

    That shawl really is nice. I like the colors. And never mind the beach -- no envy here. I'm riding high tonight for a couple of reasons, which will show up in my blog in a week or so. Suffice it to say it involves awards and my first-ever Zoom call. I'm getting dragged into the 21st century, like it or not.

    1. Oh man - I used to each marshmallow fluff straight out of the jar - ha!

  2. I was with you on the sandwich until you mentioned mayo.

    It's funny you were wearing the same outfit! And not only that -- the same jewelry!

    1. You are not alone. I don't understand - it's just a banana sandwich with peanut butter added. Ha!

  3. I love your dad's hat. and once again you take a perfectly good combo of food and ruin it with something weird.

    1. Yeah it's a great hat. And I stand by my fabulous sandwich. So there!

  4. But why were you holding grapes and an ant?

    1. I didn't even see the ant until I posted the picture. Did I carry it into the house? Did it get into my pants? Who knows?

  5. I always feel like I'm in teh Matrix when it comes up I'm wearing the same thing. It also reminds me I need to update my wardrobe!

    1. YES. I really do wear the same things All. The. Time.

  6. Eucharist--we have those same cups and I had to learn to peel off the first paper and avoid spilling the juice.
    We celebrate communion every first Sunday of the month.
    Soybeans were harvested this week around here.
    Enjoying fall!


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