2017 Project 365 – Week Twenty-nine

There are lots of pictures this week because I had Decision Making Disorder. The theme for the week is pink. And flowers – since I can’t wander around the yard, Dr. M brings their images to me. No weird sandwiches this time. I probably shouldn’t tell you about the time I ate a bologna & cheese & mayo & banana & peanut butter & jelly sandwich. It was pretty tasty, but messy.
Sunday, July 16th    
I LOVE all the crepe myrtle trees in my home town! There are so many different colors – I want one of each for my yard. This one in front of the nursing home happened to match what I was wearing, so I had to take a selfie with it.

I had an early morning appointment and wore actual shoes for the second day in a row. Woo hoo!

Heather is still a sheep, and her impatiens are looking lovely.

The monkey grass is blooming!

And the bougainvillea is still going strong.

Roy! Such a good boy.

Dr. M thinks this is a black morph female Eastern Tiger Swallowtail. I think it’s lovely!

Wednesday, July 19th                          
The only picture of the day – I was fiddling around with the Facebook Messenger app’s camera filters & got this cute picture of Samuel Spaniel, the ancient stuffed dog my brother gave me while I was in college. He’s almost 35 years old now!

Today my nephew came home from his tour of duty as a medic in Afghanistan. So glad to have him back in the states now!

Temperature scarf update (average temp each day, from March 1, 2017 – February 28, 2018). It’s going to be huge (well, we knew that, didn’t we?). I’m 40% done & it’s almost 3 ½ feet long. I like the cool weather colors better than the warm ones – good thing those will be the colors on each end of the scarf.

Friday, July 21st            
My lunch on Friday – strawberries, bananas, apples, blueberries, peaches. It was too hot for real food. Well, for full disclosure I must admit that I had a tuna sandwich later as an afternoon “snack.”

Update on the blanket I’m making for a gift. I sewed the four panels together & now I need to do a border. I really don’t like sewing; therefore, I’m not very good at it. I fear this blanket will be rather lumpy. Maybe I’ll end up keeping it after all!

Saturday, July 22nd                
More flowers from the yard – the vinca my dad gave us is thriving. And the ancestral phlox has decided to start blooming again.

Today we’re going to a reception to celebrate Daddy & Sue’s marriage. I have written a wedding toast. It’s a (bad) poem. I know you can’t wait, but I’m not posting it until later in the week. Ha! Anything special happening in your life this week?


  1. That is such a sweet photo of your nephew and his girl/wife.
    That butterfly is lovely.
    Our week has been slow and lazy. H got a dental implant and is supposed to take it easy. If he's taking it easy, then you know I am, too.
    Enjoy the celebration for you Dad and Sue.

  2. Glad to hear your nephew made it home safe and sound.

  3. Oh, crape myrtles! How I love them, and how I wish they would grow in Ohio. I'd find all sorts of places to put them. They are gorgeous.

  4. I remember my flight home after a deployment. The best feeling in the world is to step out on US soil.

  5. some people around here top their crepe myrtles every year. I have never understood that but I did it to my small purple one this spring because it had been almost completely covered with a lichen and hadn't bloomed in years. It's blooming very nicely this year but I won't do it again unless it gets covered with that lichen again.

  6. Thanks for the well wishes for our Screaming Eagle combat medic! Not married yet, but love is in the air. He has just finished year one of his second four, and she is almost finished with college. Lovely, quirky couple, really, and they've had to deal with a lot the last five years. But you can see they belong together by how well they fit (paraphrased movie line). Cheering them on.

  7. That girl has a LOT of hair. And so does the one behind him! Your fruit salad lunch looks delicious. Judy has a thing for watermelon and I'm giving her plenty of it these days. Love your sneakers with their pretty laces.

  8. Love the pinkness in your pic,
    and the blueness and dark of the butterflies against the colorful floral background
    and the delish fruit salad!


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

2022 Project 365 – Week Twenty-four

I took a couple of days off this past week & it was most excellent! My only complaint was that I had to put makeup on & leave the ho...
