2021 Project 365 – Week Eight

It’s another selfie week. I even decided to not use two of them. I don’t know, but I must think I’m fabulous. One thing I do know - I am very grateful that NC didn’t get the extreme weather that other parts of the country got last week (looking at you Texas – SO SORRY!!).
Sunday, February 14th    
No mushy Valentine’s photo here – the only thing I photographed was my sandwich – ham and cheese and peanut butter & jelly. It was good!

Monday, February 15th
We had a mask decorating contest at work for heart health. Here is my submission.

Tuesday, February 16th
Twilight. (Also, there was a picture of me eating the pancakes Dr. M got me for Shrove Tuesday, but I decided it was a selfie too far.)

Wednesday, February 17th    
How long have we been wearing masks? When will I become competent?

Zoom ash Wednesday! The second photo is me being mesmerized by the blue flashing light on my Bluetooth headset. Maybe I’ll wear a different one for my next zoom call!

Thursday, February 18th
For some reason I was inspired to start listening to this book again. I wonder why?

Friday, February 19th
Here is a story about me being an asshole. I was in my office during my lunch hour & there was a knock on my door. I was super annoyed because I was playing a timed game on my iPad, but I VERY UNGRACIOUSLY let a couple of coworkers in. Only to find out that I had won the mask decorating contest. Oh my goodness – look at this basket! I felt simultaneously two inches tall and 10 feet tall. Lesson to self: be a nicer person. And just delete that stupid game off your iPad.

Dr. M made this fabulous veggie bake using up some of our Misfits produce. It was GOOD.

Saturday, February 20th  
I pulled this scarf out to start working on it again. I had put it away before Christmas so I could concentrate on Christmas presents. I had to basically relearn what the heck I was doing here.

Weekly temperature blanket update. (That little uneven part on the bottom right is really starting to bug me, but I don't know what I can do about it at the moment. I might end up adding a border once I'm finished with the blanket.)

As I’m writing this Dr. M is in the kitchen fixing my dinner. Am I a lucky Bug, or what? We’re having shredded BBQ chicken, mashed potatoes, & leftover veggies (see Friday). What are you having for dinner?


  1. I just had dinner: leftover pecan chicken and rice pilaf, with some extra onion and mixed veggies stirred in. Also: a carton of strawberry cheesecake yogurt for dessert. Big news all the way around, here. The snow and ice are gone, and it was about 72 degrees this afternoon. I moved my plants outdoors, did a little repotting, and may or may not do a little more housecleaning tonight. If nothing else, I'll sweep up the dirt from the plants.

    Our water's back and the boil notices have ended, so I took a hot shower, washed my hair, and got the laundry caught up. Happyhappyhappy.

    1. Well your dinner sounds just amazing. I love pecan chicken! So glad that things are turning around down there in Texas!

  2. Happy for TX, above. We're finally hitting the 30s in NEO for the week. First time in forever. Maybe I'll finally see the end of this snow that's been heaped up around here.

    I spied a basil leaf or two peeking out from your prize basket! Lucky you if you got a nice plant. The only herb I had left was a gorgeous rosemary, but as soon as the big snow came, it got destroyed by the neighbor's snowblower. Sigh. I just hope it comes back.

    1. The basil is lovely! Dr. M put it in a new pot & it's living in the tub with Pinkie right now. I love rosemary - I always plan to grow herbs, but then the one year I did I couldn't figure out what to do with them (since I don't really cook).

  3. should have seen me trying to put on a mask with a hat on, sunglasses and a scarf around my neck. of course you won the mask contest.

  4. I have never heard of combining ham & cheese and peanut butter & jelly on the SAME sandwich. It seems like kind of an Elvis thing to do! LOL

    That gift basket looks amazing, and I love your twilight photo.

    1. My brother & I "invented" this sandwich (except we used bologna) when we were teenagers. I'm pretty sure he doesn't still eat it though.

  5. I think SWMBO is doing some kind of Asian stir-fry chicken dish.

    1. That sounds good. We haven't had Asian food in forever!

  6. Andy Weir has another book coming out soon. Never read his second book, which takes place on the moon.
    But The Martian is probably the best hard sci-fi book I have read in a long time.

    1. It really is! I'm kind of afraid to read any others of his in case I don't like them. (That sounds stupid now that I've typed it out like that - ha!)


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

2022 Project 365 – Week Twenty-five

People. I have done nothing this weekend but read and crochet. Didn’t leave the house for two days. Didn’t do a lick of housework. I was a t...
