Project 365, Days 181-190

Day 181: Hubby had a fund-raiser/auction for his work and we bought this chair and pillow. Since we live by the lake, it seems appropriate.

Day 182: Another purchase from yesterday’s fund raiser.

Day 183: Naughty puppy. I found her up here trying to get at a bowl that was left out

Day 184: Graduation Sunday at our church Every graduate got a quilt that was specially sewn by ladies in our church. The fabric of Janelle’s quilt includes patterns of music, violins, dance and travel

Day 185: Our last ever co-op class. We ended the year with a movie and pizza party

Day 186: You know what these bins mean? Camping season is almost here. It’s time to go through them all and make sure all the supplies are ready for this year,

Day 187: Trying to stay awake at work today while taking my online liquor license class. Almost 3 hours of staring at a computer screen,

Day 188: New nails for Memorial Day

Day 189: Our campsite at Green Lake

Day 190: We went to the Princeton Flea Market this morning. This guy was the highlight of the day. He would write a poem for you on any topic you chose. He typed it for you, while you waited, on his old-fashioned typewriter. You could pay him whatever you wanted.

Project 365, Days 171-180

Day 171: Today was too nice of a day to stay inside, so we had class outside. I’m not sure how much actual learning took place, but we had a great time enjoying the warm sun.

Day 172: Little plants are also enjoying our nice weather. Soon, it will be time to transplant them into the garden.

Day 173: Some days at work just scream for something to drink when I get home. Today was one of those days.

Day 174: More signs of spring

Day 175: Time for new nails again. Something bright and cheerful this time

Day 176: Janelle went to prom with some of her friends. It’s hard to believe she’s a senior already. She’s grown up into a very beautiful young lady.

Day 177: Went for a walk with my husband today down a trail near our house. I am totally enjoying spring now that it is finally here.

Day 178: Two days after prom (and post-prom activities), Janelle is still a bit tired. She’s having a hard time staying awake in class.

Day 179: There is a virus going through the fish in the lake. If you look closely in this photo, you can see white things floating in the water. Those are dead fish, killed by the virus. Hopefully this will be over soon. Dead fish by the hundred do not smell good.

Day 180: Another sign of spring around here–lake flies. They are everywhere and if we’re not quick, get in the house every time we go in or out. Thankfully they only last a few days.

Project 365, Days 161-170

Day 161: Nala loves to try to watch out the window. She’s not quite tall enough but that doesn’t stop her from trying. She also loves to bark at everything she hears out that window.

Day 162: We have a small issue with the fan in our Jeep. In order for it to work, we have to keep tension on a certain wire. This is the solution my hubby came up with. Can’t use the passenger seat, but the fan works.

Day 163: Homemade mac and cheese. I made 4 big pans of it. 1 for a local family, one for us and 2 to take camping with us. It heats up great over a fire.

Day 164: My cream cheese rangoon had no cream cheese, just a fried wonton

Day 165: We’ve had a bit of rain and the yard is starting to get a little soggy

Day 166: This is how I spent my night at work–pushing carts. Not my favorite job, but it has to get done.

Day 167: Another day, more pushing carts.

Day 168: It rained, a lot. Now our yard is flooded in several places. This is the backyard.

Day 169: After even more rain, the area between our house and garage is covered in several inches of water.

Day 170: Our front yard has enough water to keep a family of ducks happy. Hopefully the rain will stop soon.

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.
