2022 Project 365 – Week Six

This weekend has been a microcosm of the craziness that is February weather. Yesterday was a GORGEOUS day, with a high of 70 degrees. This morning it was pouring rain and it’s been in the 40s all day. I was a wee bit annoyed that I had to leave the house today, but really that’s how I feel most days & I don’t know why I’m blaming the weather.
Sunday, February 6th      
We finally took Christmas down. It’s been lighter for longer in the evenings so I was ok with it.
 

I also finished one of my WIPs that I “have” to finish before I can start on my new scarf (and a cardigan, and a secret blanket project that I haven’t talked about). It's a super cozy lap blanket for my cousin. 
 

(Continuing my Black History Month project…) Meet Black Liturgies!
 
Monday, February 7th    
Stopped by Daddy & Sue’s house to work the puzzle visit, but they had ALREADY FINISHED THE PUZZLE. Man. I had sit and actually talk to them.
 

Meet Nedra Tawwab!

Tuesday, February 8th  
When Dr. M went to his dad’s house on Saturday his dad was having a lot of trouble hearing. After determining that it wasn’t a problem with his hearing aid battery, Dr. M scheduled an appointment with his audiologist. While he was there they did a new hearing test (the first in 2 years due to the pandemic), and figured out that his hearing aid needed adjusted. What a huge difference! Dr. M said that his dad kept commenting on how loud things were.
 

Meet Deidra Riggs!
 
Wednesday, February 9th    
I got tulips for an early Valentine present!
 

Also, here is a sampling of our recent bird action.
 

Meet Adiaha at Ancestral Fiber!
 
Thursday, February 10th  
I was pretty pleased with my tuna salad on a saltine hors d’oeuvres until I dropped it on the floor. Oops!
 

Meet Dayo at the Black Enneagram!
 
Friday, February 11th     
New puzzle at my dad’s house! We like this one a lot – it has some funky shapes and the quality of the puzzle is A+. Yes, we are now puzzle snobs.
 

Meet Queenbe Monyai!

Saturday, February 12th       
My cousin’s granddaughter had a first birthday party & I decided to go – partly because there would be cake, but also to confab with my cousin about a project I’m going to work on for her. As a bonus, I got to see this cutie patootie, who was definitely NOT in smash cake mode. She kept sticking her finger into the icing very delicately. So adorable.
 

Meanwhile, Dr. M had a welcoming committee when he got home from his dad’s.
 

And my tulips are opening up! I always think they look so alien & cool in this stage.
 

Finally, remember when I cut open my eye cream to get the “last dab” out? That was almost four weeks ago, and I just finished using the last drop.
 

Meet KnotBadBritt!
 
Well, today there is some sort of football game going on. We’re actually going to tune in for a change. I really hope the Bengals do well. Are you planning to (or did you) watch the game? I usually only care about the commercials, but I guess this time I’ll try to pay attention!

  1. It's about time you had some cake in your post. Of course, now I want some, and we have ZERO.

    I'm enjoying meeting the people you're featuring. Thank you.

    (Too bad about your tuna salad cracker. At least you didn't ruin an outfit, I guess.)

    1. I only got to eat one cupcake and it was NOT enough! I'm glad you're enjoying the women I'm highlighting!

      I did not get tuna on my outfit. Thank goodness!

  2. I can vouch for the fact that not all puzzles are created equal. The variety is actually quite fascinating. The challenge with our current one is that its hard to know for sure if the piece fits or if it could easily go somewhere else. The struggle. :)

    1. YES! We did Starry Night recently & it was like that - one of the hardest ones we've done!

  3. I don't know what's been up with blogger, but I didn't get an email about your last post, or this one, and it took me forever to get the magic box to let me type a comment. I'm going to just leave this, and then take time to really read your entries. We'll call this a test!

  4. I loved seeing that cutie with the cake. Except -- now I want cake. I just went to the fridge and got a lemon chiffon nonfat yogurt instead. It's not at all the same, but beggars, chosers, and all that. I laughed at your eye cream tale. I got fed up and finally bought a lipstick brush. Now, when my lipstick is "all gone" I can get another month or so from it. I'm not about to throw away that last half-inch of lipstick!

    1. Someone on Facebook recommended a tiny little spatula that's designed to get lotions & creams out of bottles more efficiently. Of course I bought it. Ha!

  5. I like your black History Month project. and you finally posted a food concoction that looks good so of course it landed on the floor.

    1. It was a tragedy. I ended up mixing the spinach & tomatoes in the tuna & just sort of crumbling the crackers on top.

  6. That birthday girl - what a beauty!!!

    1. I didn't actually get the tree down until Saturday, so it was up for a week without any ornaments. Ha!

  7. I had predicted (along with most of the sports pundits) that L.A. would win but it was close. I didn't really care one way or the other. And once Joe Burrow learns to move out of the pocket or get an offensive line that will protect him, I think the Bengals will be a contender for years.

    1. I hope you're right because that would be a lot of fun!

  8. Is that Roy? When did his face get so gray?!

    1. He's showing his age these days. He's still a bundle of energy when he first gets out of his lot (he has a big lot, but he loves to explore outside of it and greet neighbors like us), but he doesn't roam far afield, and he tires more easily. Still, he is healthy and happy and well loved. I do make him work for treats, though. I ask him to sit, then I tell him he's a good boy and toss the treat over his head for him to fetch. He loves chasing after the bouncing treats! When I took this pic, he had already worn himself out, so he went back home to rest after some pets.

  9. I do the same type of dinner - tuna with basil and tomato on a cracker. I'll be glad when I have fresh basil again!.

  10. I still have Christmas things to move into the attic, and then get out Easter decor!
    Love how you used up the eye cream to the very end.
    Tulips are beautiful, and so is Roy!
