Project 365, Days 121-130

Day 121: It was a day beautiful enough to make me think that maybe spring is almost here. But, since this is Wisconsin, I won’t hold my breath.

Day 122: Not sure if it’s dance class or writing class. Janelle must think it’s dance class

Day 123: Nala is now 6 months old

Day 124: His girl isn’t home right now, so Blizzard will just wait outside her bedroom door until she returns.

Day 125: After a trip to the podiatrist and a 9 hour shift, my foot hurt too bad to walk anymore. So, I used an electric cart while shopping.

Day 126: Nala really needs a haircut

Day 127: The dogs think they are entitled to some of my food. Silly dogs

Day 128: Standing guard. Against what I am not entirely sure, but it’s something scary and it’s outside the window.

Day 129: This week it’s both Janelle and Jessy dancing during class

Day 130: She finally got her haircut and is looking fluffy and adorable again

Project 365, Days 111-120

Day 111: A sleepy puppy. Usually she just uses her bed for digging but every once in a while, she actually sleeps there.

Day 112: Blizzard needs a haircut. He’s starting to look a little shaggy

Day 113: Every time I mop the floor, Nala has to roll around on it. It’s like she’s trying to help dry it or something.

Day 114: I’ve been working on a couple of small projects around the house. One of them is to set up an office area for myself. Moved my desk downstairs and I’m ready to go.

Day 115: Another project is setting up the fish tank. I got it moved to it’s proper location and cleaned out. Now we have to decide exactly what we want in it.

Day 116: One of Nala’s favorite toys is my old cow slipper. She loves to attack it and bury her face in it.

Day 117: Can anyone explain to me why we, a store in Wisconsin, have gift cards with the Chicago Bulls on them but none with the Green Bay Packers?

Day 118 : Nala thinks she has a sweet tooth. Her goal is to get the bag of Easter candy.

Day 119: More Nala, this time digging in my basket of blankets.

Day 120: I didn’t take this photo, and it’s not recent, but it’s important to me. It’s our first family photo, taken in Novosibirsk, Siberia, shortly after we were able to leave the orphanage with our two boys. We were waiting for the government to process the documents that would allow us to leave the country and return home. It was 21 years ago today.

Project 365, Days 101-110

 

Day 101: I am actually eating healthy today at work. I, unfortunately, don’t do that often enough.

Day 102: My late night life–driving home from work at midnight, waiting for a train. SO much excitement.

Day 103: We have open water on the lake and that means geese. Lots and lots of geese. They’re all in the lake at the moment, but soon they will be all over the lawn.

Day 104: One of these days I am going to remember to put an ice scraper in my car so I don’t have to sit and wait for the defrost to clear my windshield.

Day 105: We went to pick up Greg for spring break. His one food request was ice cream from Kelley’s Creamery. An excellent choice.

Day 106: My fortune cookie has a sense of humor

Day 107: Nala spent a long time this morning dragging my coat off the chair and bringing it to me. Not sure what she is trying to tell me. Maybe she doesn’t want me home?

Day 108: More snow. Forecasters originally had a fairly large amount predicted but thankfully that isn’t happening. Just enough to remind us that it’s still winter in Wisconsin.

Day 109: Flocks of geese have now found our lawn.

Day 110: Time for new nails. I went really fancy and got a jewel put on today.

Project 365, Days 91-100

 

Day 91: Belly rub, please

Day 92: Roland had his annual Awards banquet for work. He got the “executive” award.

Day 93: The gang from Roland’s office

Day 94:  Watching a movie in literature class. We’re reading the Chronicles of Narnia and watch the movies after reading the books (both the older BBC versions and the newer releases)

Day 95: Nala likes to live dangerously. She runs up to Blizzard, grabs either his tail or his leg, barks and runs away. Then, she circles around and does it again.

Day 96: Still being goofy and trying to play with the “old man” who doesn’t like to play.

Day 97: One of Nalas new discoveries: her reflection. When she stands here, she can see her reflection in the window. When she sees her reflection, she barks.

Day 98: A trip to Chicago to visit Greg. We went to Millennium Park and saw the “Bean”

Day 99: It’s a rainy night but it’s better than more snow

Day 100: When I go away, even if it’s just for a little while, I usually come home to some kind of mess. Shredding toilet paper is a common passtime of Nala’s

 

Project 365, Days 81-90

Day 81: Nala loves Mint Oreo mixers from Culvers

Day 82: After eating the last little bit out of the bottom of the ice cream cup, she has slightly green-tinted fur. Bath time!

Day 83: Another night after work, another dead battery. Waiting for a ride, again.

Day 84: Stockmen at work couldn’t keep up so I get the “pleasure” of pushing carts in. Yea me.

Day 85: Finally a sunny day. Now, if the temperature would just go up a bit

Day 86: Early Valentine’s day dinner at Casa del Tequila

Day 87: There’s no telling what these girls will do in co-op class. Today, it was trying to imitate one of the 10 Commandments posters in the Sunday School room. They’re trying to look like a 5

Day 88: New nails again.

Day 89: Roses for Valentine’s Day

Day 90: Outside at work again. This time, shoveling and salting the slippery handicapped parking spots.

Project 365, Days 71-80

Day 71: Only I could break a nail two days after getting them done while closing the bathroom stall door.

Day 72: We went to see Phantom of the Opera at the Fireside Theater in Fort Atkinson. Great show and great food.

Day 73: I do not know what she is doing. No clue. I’m not even sure she knows.

Day 74: One of my bullet journal layouts for February

Day 75: Please, may I have your popcorn? I really like it. I promise, if you turn your head away for a second or two, I will grab the bowl and run away with it so you won’t have to watch me eat it.

Day 76: What do you think of my hiding spot? Nobody will find me here.

Day 77: It’s supposed to get cold and snowy. Maybe I better fill my gas tank before the weather turns nasty.

Day 78: And…here comes the nasty weather. I have no window scraper in my car, so I get to sit and wait for the defrost to clean off the windshield so I can drive home

Day 79: Nala loves to it right behind me and “help” when I am working on the laptop

Day 80: Test time in geology class

Project 365, Days 61-70

Days 61 & 62: I decided to try out using a bullet journal this year. These two pictures are two of the pages I am using.  I’m not overly artistic or creative, so I adapted layouts I found onine. Stay tuned for updates on this endeavor.

Day 63:  My lunch at work today. Look at all that nutrition–not!! I think I really need to start eating healtier.

Day 64: Nala got into the chili today and is now wearing a tomato mustache. She’s a quick little thing.

Day 65: Even Roland loves playing with Nala.

Day 66: It was warm today. So warm and rainy that our yard is flooded. This is only one of many puddles.

Day 67: New nails again. I love the cat’s eye polish

Day 68: We have some unique stuffed animals for Valentines Day at Walmart this year. Nothing says “I love you” like a stuffed camel.

Day 69: I may never wash this hand again. I shook hands with the great former Packer player George Koonce

Day 70: One more of the unique animals. I am in love with this sloth.
