2022 Project 365 – Week Four

I’m not feeling an intro paragraph this week, so let’s just dive in.
Sunday, January 23rd      
I “finished” the border on my temperature blanket. At least I thought it was done, but I’ve since added another row. So you’ll most likely see at least one more picture of this thing.
 


Monday, January 24th    
I had to go to Kohl’s and enjoyed the sunset from the parking lot.
 

Then I came home to this fabulous yarn! When I ordered it I told the dyer to surprise me with the colorway – it was my way of trying to end up with something different since I gravitate toward the same colors. I think this will be lovely! It's going to be VERY HARD to finish my other projects before I dive in.
 

I had been working on making a hat with some yarn a coworker gave me for Christmas & ended up frogging most of it. I thought it was pretty.
 

Tuesday, January 25th
Finished the hat!
 


Dr. M made his dinner into a work of art. We watched hockey while we ate.
 

Wednesday, January 26th    
I thought I would dump the “last little bit” of cheese onto my oatmeal & fried eggs. Oops.
 

Thursday, January 27th
Screen shot from this week’s class, which was about how race has no basis in biology. (It’s a social construct, yo.)
 

Friday, January 28th     
Sad face because someone in my book got shot.
 

Came home to more happy mail! I’ve never done a “word of the year” but when an enneagram account I follow on Instagram suggested this one for enneagram 9s it struck a chord in me. I’ve been asleep for a couple of years now - it’s time to wake up and move through my life with intention. I like how it coordinates with my Black Lives Matter bracelet.

I love the convenience of pump bottles, but it’s annoying that they stop working with so much product left in the bottle.
 

I spent some time after church today working a puzzle at my dad’s house. I love that I’m able to do that – their house is often on my way home from wherever I am. What do you like about where you live?

  1. I use this when my pump bottles stop working: https://www.amazon.com/FLSK6-Deluxe-Emptying-Adapters-Storage/dp/B00LNJKX7W?th=1

    I love that I live in an area of the country where almost all my siblings and children have decided to live, and not relocate. Although I am more than a few minutes away I am able to see them all regularly. Plus I just love that it has oceans and mountains and trees. So gorgeous!!

    1. Well that looks genius! I might have to invest in one of those.

  2. Agree with you about the pump bottles. I also hate when there's still lotion/creme left in tubes and I have to cut them open and get my fingers in there.

    Deep winter is the wrong time to ask me what I like about where I live! I will say that the cost of living here is very reasonable compared to lots of other places. And I'm within a short drive of anyplace and anything I ever want or need.

    1. That one bottle was a BEAR to cut open. I might have to start using the trick Susan suggested up there.

      I do miss living close to things. Although I drive by things on my way home from work, that's not helpful on Saturday night when we might have a craving for Taco Bell. On second thought it's probably better that we don't live near a Taco Bell anymore. Ha!

  3. I copied your idea on getting the last bits of lotion, etc from bottles. I am impressed with the amount I've still got to use. Thanks! Also - I love that yarn. Looks very soft and silky. What are going to make???

  4. It has never occurred to me to cut open the plastic bottle to get the rest of the product out but I will now. And yeah, nice surprise with the yarn.

    1. The more I think about the yarn the harder it is for me to make myself finish my other projects. I have two that I'm making myself finish before I start.

  5. Ahhh - sad face!
    I just love your Mudlove bracelets so much - I need to dig mine out - I used to wear them all the time!

    1. I'm already thinking about what word or phrase I can order next. Ha!

  6. That it rarely snows. And that it melts fast when it does.

  7. I like your bracelets and the hat came out great! (Does "frogging" it mean you unraveled your first attempt?) I'm with you on pump bottles. Why do they sell mayonnaise in those squeeze bottles now, rather than a jar? It's really hard to get the last of the mayo out!

    1. Yes - it's called frog because you "rip it" out. I think that's why it's called that.

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