2011 Project 365 – Week Forty-Eight

I’m running late this week – we drove back from NC yesterday & I wasn’t feeling very coherent (which is why I wrote a poem instead – ha!).

Sunday, November 20th    
I was worried that I had stopped being able to take pictures, but we finally figured out that something is wrong with one of our DSLR lenses – however I think it’s appropriate that my baking efforts are kind of blurry. Ha!

Monday, November 21st
Dr. M took this spooky picture.

And then he saw this hawk!

Tuesday, November 22nd  
The State of the Bug. Oh merciful heavens I was quite undone by the end of The Book Thief. It was an excellent book – beautifully written. And the audio book was quite well narrated. But it was kind of sad, as you can see.

On a happier note, Dr. M took a picture of a deer with raised eyebrows – wonder what it was thinking?

I finally used the Shutterfly gift certificate that I won from Sara – I made a calendar for Dr. M’s birthday.

One of Dr. M’s students gave him this lovely wall hanging.

Wednesday, November 23rd
We drove to NC today. I took this picture of a truck in front of us – makes me smile to see my name on trucks.

Dr. M took this picture of me while I was driving.

Thursday, November 24th          
We visited Dr. M’s mother’s grave today.

We had lunch with Dr. M’s brother & his family. I think these guys look pretty darn content. If you want to see them from the front, check out this post.

On the way back to my dad’s house we saw one of the local flocks. Some of them are wearing coats!

Friday, November 25th
Dr. M took a picture of a donkey.

While he was spending time with his dad & brother I went shopping with my sister-in-law. This is her terribly cute little car.

I posted this picture last week, but I wanted to share it again here. Cracks. Me. Up.

Dr. M doing what we spend far too much time doing at my dad’s house – ha!

Saturday, November 26th
We had lunch with my family today. Here’s Amy laughing at the dessert table.

Dr. M.

My niece trying to get my nephew to throw her into the air. She is quite an accomplished cheerleader. Go check her out here. I’ll be asking you to vote for her on Thursday – stay tuned!

My cousin J and some of the kids playing after lunch – looks like they had a great time.

Here’s the whole crew.

Dr. M took some pictures around Daddy & Amy’s house. We’re wondering what his first plant is – it’s a volunteer that comes back every year & produces a single leaf. Odd.

Go to Sara’s blog here to see the blogs of all the other Project 365 participants. Have a great week!

Most of our photos are taken with a 12 megapixel Nikon D5000 DSLR, using a 55-200mm zoom lens. This is the camera that Dr. M takes with him most days. We also take pictures with our old reliable 7 megapixel Canon Powershot A710. This is the camera that the Bug uses most of the time. If you’re interested in which camera was used for a particular shot, just ask!


  1. What a great family, and it looks like you had a wonderful time. Moments to treasure.

  2. I'm glad you're back to doing your weekly roundups.

  3. Wow! That was quite a gathering. Looks like great fun. I really enjoyed all the week.

  4. I soooo want a mini-coop! They are so much fun to drive!
    Looks like a good time with a LOT of people!

  5. Why on earth would someone put a sheep in a coat? Don't they come with their own coats?

  6. great family photos - and i love the calendar

    I should root through your old posts and make myself a Tax Time Pig calendar...or not :)

  7. Looks like fun was had by all. That house really did look haunted. I'll have to come back when my husband is home and show him the hawk. Love the pic of the whole clan. Those are always fun.

  8. Steve - Dr. M researched it & apparently it's supposed to keep the wool cleaner. Which, considering how FILTHY these guys can get is a good idea!

    DFTP - I'll have to do a better job of taking good pictures of that pig if you're going to make a calendar of them!

  9. Such fun photos!
    A very different week's worth.
    Always the beautiful nature shots, and the priceless State of the Bug ;)
    I may have to get that book, or not.
    Have a great Thanksgiving-recovery week!

  10. You packed an incredible amount of activity into one week! I love all the photos!

  11. I missed your weekly have such an amazing wildlife around you and great pics!

  12. My goodness, I wss in floods at the end of the Book Thief. It's terrific! Lovey variety this week.

  13. I just love your pictures!! I love finding my name in things too. I love the family pictures, Dr. M. looks so happy. I love those old houses, even the haunted looking ones. Just awesome!!

    P.S. The Scalloped Pineapple is super easy...I'll post a recipe. But read at your own risk...very bad for you...sigh.

  14. I'm glad you like my little red car. It is just my size!

    I wish I had a picture of your face when you realized that your nephew is graduating this year! It was PRICELESS!!

  15. Ups and downs and wonderful photos! I especially like the three guys and then the three sheep. :-)

  16. Fun week! I especially always appreciate your state of the Bug pictures........

    enjoyed for the second time seeing the picture in the bedding department.....a perfect moment of hilarity....

    Sheep, sheep and more it!
