Project 365 - Week Twenty Seven

Sunday, June 27th
On Sunday while we were driving around look at signs for my Poetry Bus poem (and eating ice cream) we saw a couple of deer in a field. This isn't a great picture - if you click on it to enlarge it you can see better.

Monday, June 28th
Martha Goose found a friend! Goldenrod is moving & thought that I would enjoy this hilarious gift. We've named her Chloe.

Tuesday, June 29th
On Tuesday I took the garden shots I had in my last post. Here is a shot of some baby tomatoes on the plants in the garden - these are the ones we grew from seed my dad gave me.

Wednesday, June 30th
On Wednesday Dr. M went to a meeting at Mac-a-Cheek. Must be rough - a business meeting at an Ohio "castle." Heh. It was the Bugly's first trip to the castles.

I also took yet another picture of the finches at the feeder.

Thursday, July 1st
On Thursday we drove up to Marblehead Ohio to enjoy some time at Lake Erie. Before we left I basically guilted Dr. M into picking this banana pepper from our garden. Our first produce! It was a bit bitter - I'm pretty sure we picked it too soon.

I took not one picture on our way to the lake. And once we got there we were so wiped out from the sun that we basically strolled around the resort grounds & came to the room to get on the computer before crashing. Here's Dr. M in the room. Isn't he the cutest thing? It's the glasses!

Friday, July 2nd
On Friday we took the ferry over to Kelly's Island. We had a fabulous day - and I'll be doing a separate post on it. Here is a picture that a nice lady on the ferry took of the two of us.

On our way back to our hotel we stopped at the Marblehead Lighthouse - we always check it out when we come up here.

Saturday, July 3rd
Today we just decided to ramble around. We went to Maumee Bay State Park & walked around looking at the birds & the bathers. Then we went to the Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge & took their boardwalk through the marsh. It was very pleasant (except for some biting flies). Here I am enjoying the marsh:

On our way back to the hotel we stopped at one of our favorite places - East Harbor State Park. And I had to take my usual shot of Dr. M standing on the rocks.

Go here to see the blogs of all the other Project 365 participants.


  1. Your tomatoes are just forming and I am letting my latest round of cherries rot on the vine (of course all that rain the last four days didn't encourage me to get out)! They just won't quit! And we have been invaded by stink bugs that are doing their number on them as well. The garden is just a mess. Pill bugs in abundance. But my three cantaloupes are still looking good.

  2. I never get tired of seeing deer!!

    We are enjoying wonderful tomatoes here and they are growing HUGE this year!!

    looks like a great week!!!

  3. My MIL has a goose just like that! She decorates it according to the seasons. Miraculously it was still in the same spot after the tornado in 2007!

  4. I loved the photos of the two of you. You both look so happy and relaxed. As for the glasses... he looks oh, so learned (lol)!

  5. Dear The Bug,
    Indeed Dr. M looks handsome--and distinguee'.

    You both do look happy and relaxed--and beautiful. I love that coral on you, it's a lovely color! And it all sounds great except for biting flies.

    Happy Fourth, Dear Bug!
    Ann T.

  6. I'm envious of all your trips and day trips. I'd love to have things like lighthouses to visit.

    We have a lot of deer around here. I hit one once and it totaled my car, so now I'm nervous when I see them near the road.

  7. :ppls ;ole a great tro[ amd a moce weel/-- That's me typing while trying to stare down the dog, who is persistent in wanting my attention. Let's try again.

    Sounds like a great trip and a nice week. I'm working on getting back in the flow of P365!

  8. Chloe is the perfect pal for Mother Goose! Love their coordinating outfits :D

    Sounds like a fantastic week with plenty of time with hubby. Enjoying the summer!

    Have a great week!

  9. I think Chloe is a great addition to your family!
    I love to see deer, as long as they are not in the road by my car!
    Your trip looks and sounds great! So glad you could enjoy some time together away!!
    Have a super week!!

  10. Welcome Chloe, deer, tomatoes, peppers, castles...summer!!!
    Great to see both of you in your photos and your enjoyment of life.

  11. I haven't been to Lake Erie! The lighthouse looks brand new.

    I hope you had a refreshing time and feel ready for a new week.

  12. Wow so many new things. It looks like the two of you had a wonderful trip.

  13. What's the story behind Mac-a-Cheek? I'll have to look it up. Looks like an interesting place.


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

I’m still feeling the disconnect of world events (& events here at home), & all the perky “Reason for the Season” in the air right n...
