2022 Project 365 – Week Five

Well, it is now February and I am HERE FOR IT. Because that means we’re that much closer to spring and warmer weather, which I will enjoy briefly and then go back to complaining. The Circle of Life!
Sunday, January 30th      
Stopped by the ‘rents house to work a puzzle. And visit with them, of course. Of course!

I…. can’t believe I’m saying this. The Bungles Bengals are going to the Super Bowl!

Monday, January 31st    
No photo.
Tuesday, February 1st  
This isn’t a new photo, but since I didn’t have one for today I thought I would share it. I’m doing a project on Instagram & Facebook for Black History Month. I won’t share pictures each day here (I’ll put a link instead if you’d like to check it out), but here’s my caption for the first day:
I wanted to do something to mark Black History Month, but I’m not an educator or a person who feels confident in sharing knowledge about black history. So I came up with an idea that may or may not actually work. I’m a little nervous about it, but here goes!
To honor Black History Month I’m going to introduce you to accounts of some of the fabulous black women that I follow. They’re creators, scientists, therapists, comedians, educators, and women who are just trying to live their lives and making me smile in the process. Some of them tell hard truths (most of them LIVE hard truths), but I think it’s important to listen.
For day 1, I’m sharing my gorgeous niece who recently turned 20 years old (WHAT IN THE ACTUAL HECK) and whose birthday card is sitting right beside me because that’s who I am as a person. She’s an athlete who amazes me with her talent. She’s driven to do the best she can, and her best is amazing. I’m so proud of her! 

Wednesday, February 2nd     
Dr. M brought his dad to our house for a telehealth visit.

Meet Cosmic Creations here!
Thursday, February 3rd  
Same audiobook, new extra dramatic reaction to someone being shot.

Meet Hood Naturalist here!
Friday, February 4th     
We did our heart at work again for National Wear Red Day.

Meet Jessica Addickson here!
Saturday, February 5th       
I did the (this time I promise) final photo shoot for the temperature blanket. I added a row of navy & I do like it better. It could maybe benefit from an even wider border but I AM DONE. Now I just have to arrange to meet up with the person who I’m giving it to.

I stayed up way too late last night going through the materials for last Thursday’s anti racism class (oops). What was eerie is that the case study they discussed in one of the lectures was about Trayvon Martin, whose 27th birthday would have been yesterday. So since I was slack, I was hearing an analysis of his murder case on his birthday. Cue Twilight Zone music. I also finished weaving in the ends on this mini-shawl/scarf situation (it’s the shawl I was trying to make last summer where I used the wrong weight of black yarn so it ended up being too small. I didn’t frog it – figured I could find someone who would like it as a scarf.).

Meet Lou Pruett here!
I went to church today for the second Sunday in a row and I have to go again next week (I’m the lector). I’m in danger of harkening back to my 8 days a week and twice on Sundays youth. Did you grow up as a churchy child? If not, what did you do on Sunday mornings? I really applaud my parents for getting us out the door because if I were in charge now we’d be watching it on the telly in our jammies!


  1. Congratulations to your niece. And to you! You're amazing!

  2. I was raised Catholic, so we were at mass every Sunday for fear of hell. We were usually late, coming in right after the processional. I spent most of the time wishing I were not there and checking out everyone's shoes as they came back from Communion. (That was back when everyone still dressed up for church.)

    Thanks for sharing the links. I'm on my way...

    1. Yay - I hope you enjoy meeting these ladies!

      I still sort of dress up for church - I usually wear the same thing that I'm planning to wear to work on Monday. I guess business casual isn't really Sunday dress up though is it?

  3. Your niece is beautiful! I do like the blue border on the temperature blanket.

  4. You do have that puzzle board I want!!!!!
    I love your reaction! I do that sometimes at work when I'm listening to a book ... people catch me gasping

    1. I love that puzzle board - it's tempting to steal it from my dad. Ha!

  5. I'd be one of the women not wearing red. Not a color I have in my limited wardrobe.

    1. I love red, and I have a few red work appropriate things (like three), but not as many as I would like.

  6. Red is such a vibrant color, I love it.

  7. Love the finished temperature blanket.
    I spent several weeks while I was sick working on puzzles!
    This is the fourth Sunday watching the livestream at home. First I was sick and now my foot is hurting like a stress fracture maybe, find out tomorrow.
    Can't wait to be back with my community!

    1. Oh I'm so sorry you were sick! I hope you don't have a stress fracture & that your foot spontaneously heals on its own!

    2. Thank you! It is finally completely healed!


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