Project 365, Days 291-300

Day 291: It was a soup kind of day. Loaded baked potato soup, to be exact

Day 292: Beautiful sunset

Day 293: Nala went for a walk and ended up wading a bit into the lake. I now have a cold, wet pupper

Day 294: Sunrise today. I prefer to sleep through sunrises and view sunsets, but I have to work early, so it’s a sunrise day

Day 295: Nala loves car rides, especially when we let her stick her head out of the window.

Day 296: Dance at our church’s annual worship celebration

Day 297: Nala got a bath and now looks rather sad and pathetic.

Day 298: I cleaned out our freezer today. It was way past time and it’s so nice to actually have room in the freezer for the stuff that’s supposed to be there

Day 299: Mosquitoes are horrible this year, because of all the rain we’ve gotten. They are getting into the house by the hundreds.

Day 300: The mosquitoes are so bad in the house, I have to wear this mosquito repellent bracelet.

Day 282: It’s a dark, dreary, rainy Sunday

Day 283: The rain yesterday revealed a leak around our kitchen window. It caused a bubble in our paint and did some damage to the drywall under it. Time for some repairs

Day 284: Time for some new nails. I love these cat’s eye nails

Day 285: Sunset at work

Day 286: She does this when she sees her reflection in the window. She’ll sit like this for a long time, trying to figure out who the other dog is

Day 287: Attacking the killer cow slipper. It’s one of her favorite toys

Project 365, Days 271-280

Day 271: After work, we went to hear the Kids From Wisconsin concert in the park. The theme this year was Broadway musicals. It was so much fun.

Day 272: Somebody goofed. Green Bay Raiders? I think not

Day 273: Another evening spent doing someone else’s job–pushing carts again

Day 274: Summer is over for Greg. He’s loading up his car and heading back to Chicago for another semester at Moody Bible Institute.

Day 276: It’s tomato season

Day 277: All the tomatoes were turned into sauce today. It smells so good in the house right now

Day 278: She loves having this window open so she can bark at all the squirrels running through our backyard.

Day 279: The carts are supposed to be in nice, neat rows. Evidently, somebody didn’t get that message. This is how they looked when I got to work today.

Day 280: Please, may I have some of your food?

Project 365, Days 261-270

Day 261: Sunset over the lake

Day 262: We spent the day at the State Fair. We saw the sights and saw Matthew West and Casting Crowns in concert. This Ferris Wheel dominated the view as we were leaving after the concert

Day 263: Was told by a manager tonight that the parking lot was a mess and that I needed to get cashiers outside immediately to get all the carts in. This is what the lot looked like. Where’s the mess?

Day 264: It is going to be a long shift. A little caffeine never hurts, does it?

Day 265: I came home from work tonight, only a couple of short days before a party is happening here, to see this. The toilet is in the middle of the bathroom. Not exactly what I wanted to see. But, I’m told it’s an easy fix and will be fully operational tomorrow.

Day 266: I felt the need to get my nails looking good before the party.

Day 267: These two girls spent the day at the house getting everything ready for their graduation party tomorrow. It’s going to be a fun day

Day 268: Two Beautiful graduates. All grown up and ready to take on the world.

Day 269: As I was putting all the party supplies away, I stubbed my toe. I think it might be broken.

Day 270: It’s confirmed. Broken toe. I am now the proud wearer of this stylish boot.

Project 365, Days 251-260

Day 251: Time again for some new nails

Day 252: It’s this guy’s 22 birthday. He’s home for the summer but soon will be heading back to Chicago for another year of school.

Day 253: Rest and relaxation time for Nala

Day 254: This little girl is getting so much better at walking on a leash. She love walk time

Day 255: After a walk, what’s better than a nap? She’s great at sleeping in strange positions

Day 256: A customer came in tonight upset about all the big spiders outside the store. This is one of the three I could find. It’s only about a 1/4 inch, so I don’t know if these are the ones the customer meant. I hope there’s nothing bigger out there. I hate spiders.

Day 257: I’m not sure what I came in contact with, but I have this rash in several places. It itches a lot.

Day 258: When I wake up from a nap on the couch and Nala also decided to nap, this is the view I get.

Day 259: I’m not the only one who like to take a nap on the couch.

Day 260: At work, we sometimes have our “ducks in a row”

Day 241: All tired out (finally) after playing hard

Day 242: A dark, dreary, stormy type of day on the lake

Day 243: I managed to tire her out again. That’s not easy to do. Nala is a very active puppy

Day 244: Work tonight meant pushing carts because we were understaffed again.

Day 245: Lunch date today. Greg picked me up for lunch while I was working. We went to Panda Express.

Day 246: And, again, pushing carts.

Day 248: Monday is softball night. We usually go to watch our church softball teams play.

Day 249: I actually ate healthy at work today. It’s so easy to just grab something at the deli that is fried or fatty.

Day 250: I took the day off of work to go to the night air show at EAA Airventure. We saw one plane and then it started raining and storming. The show was cancelled.

Project 365, Days 231-240

Day 231: My husband has been doing more cleaning. This time, it was the bedroom

Day 232: Sometimes, we have a little fun at work. Like, when giant dinosaur heads for an upcoming movie release make their way up to the service desk

Day 233: We went to Elkhart Lake today and walked around the huge resort area.

Day 234: One of Nala’s favorite things to do when I get home is to take off my socks. She then has to run around the house with my socks, making it difficult for me to find them when I need them.

Day 235: Even though we live in town, we still occasionally see deer, like these that wandered onto the school soccer field.

Day 236: A beautiful sunset over the lake

Day 237: Nala still loves her little bed. Every once in a while she calms down enough to sleep.

Day 238: Nala got a new haircut. This is her summer cut, very short to keep her from getting too hot.

Day 239: After¬† rough night at work and my husband falling asleep and not picking me up, my son came to rescue me and took me to Applebee’s. He even paid for it.

Day 240: This week we went to Kohler Andre State Park in Sheboygan. The main attraction at this state park is the beach on Lake Michigan.
