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 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 51-60

I am so far behind in posting these. How does time slip away so easily?

Day 51: That’s a normal face for my little Nala. She loves playing in her water dish and her face is always wet because of it.

Day 52: This is what the floor looks like every day because Nala loves to play in her water.

Day 53: She’s trying so hard to be patient and wait for whatever treat might be coming her way.

Day 54: Tried this candy bar today at work. Was not impressed. Give me chocolate any day

Day 55: Nala has the annoying habit of scratching at Janelle’s door whenever she feels like playing with somebody, even if it’s 2:00 am. Janelle came up with this solution tonight to prevent her sleep from getting interrupted. I think I will buy a baby/puppy gate for her.

Day 56: It is so cold here right now. With the doors in the front of the store constantly opening all day, it is cold in the store. I have resorted to putting hand warmers in my pockets to help keep warm.

Day 57: Sleepy puppy

Day 58: Dinner out today with Roland and Janelle.

Day 59: Sitting in the parking lot after work. Waiting for a ride because my battery is dead.

Day 60: She just had a bath and a haircut. She’s looking much smaller and fluffier.

 

Project 365, Days 31-40

In an effort to get caught up with my photos, I’m posting 10 today in a different format.

31) Walmart, where I spend much of my time. Today was an unexpected shift. Somebody called in sick, so I was asked to cover. A little overtime never hurts the budget.
32) Time for a manicure. Janelle brought Nala to visit while I was getting my nails done since everybody in the office was in on the surprise of her arrival in our family.
33) Janelle broke her toe at church on Sunday. She was doing a stretching move and hit the wall with her foot. Good thing her dance studio is on Christmas break for the next couple weeks.
34) My new nails
35) We do manage to have fun at work. Ugly Christmas sweater for 2 anyone?
36) Some mornings, I am greeted with a lot of work when I arrive to start my shift. Where do all these “unwants” come from?
37) We went to Wisconsin Dells for Christmas this year. Spent Christmas Eve relaxing by the pool, soaking in the hot tub and spending time as a family.
38) After getting home, we spent the evening playing games. One of Greg’s favorites is Ticket to Ride.
39) It’s way too cold this morning to be out and about. Unfortunately, I have to work, so here I am.
40) Look at that adorable, dirty face. She’s always sticking her nose in things, so her face is permanently dirty.

 

Project 365–starting over again

Day 1, November 18, 2017: The day I turned 50. This is part of the decorations my daughter did for the party.

Day 3: My sister came all the way from Florida for my birthday. She and I are both Packer fans so she had a friend of hers make this for me.

Day 4: We have a new puppy in the house, a 3 month old miniature poodle named Nala. She loves to make messes like this.

2017-11-21_15-53-31_438

Day 5: This is Nala. The soda bottle is there for a size comparison. Last month she was the same size as the bottle.
