Day 28:  This isn’t really a photo, it’s a screenshot. This is the text my daughter sent me today while I was at work. All of us at work thought it was hilarious. Thankfully, Nala never got sick from her dead fish. Several days later, she brought a dead bird into the house.

Day 29: The Hermeneutical Club from Laconia High School stopped by Walmart today with treats for those of us in customer service. It was their way to encourage and thank those who get to deal with the extra busyness of the season.

Day 328: Our car broke down on the way to church yesterday. Roland is trying to diagnose the problem and get it up and running again.
Day 329: I found a new bread recipe. 2 loaves of bread from start to finish in about an hour. I love it!
Day 330: My little helper
Day 331, October 17, 11 months done: Blizzard is a sneaky little dog sometimes. He’ll do anything to get our plates and bowls after we finish eating.
Day 332: Fall colors outside my bedroom window.
Day 333:  Greg’s soccer team finished second in an all day tournament on a cold Saturday. Greg liked to keep his hands in his pockets to keep them warm. I don’t know how he ran like that, but he managed.
Day 334: A foggy drive to church
Day 335: Greg’s last soccer game of his high school career.
Day 336:  The carrot crop from my garden. Everything is now harvested.

Day 340: The Waupun Area Homeschool Soccer team
Day 341: Tonight’s dinner–Island grilled chicken with fresh carrots and watermelon
Day 342: Janelle decided to have some color added to her hair. The first step was to bleach her brown hair.

Day 344: The finished product
Day 345: Dinner today was chorizo pepper shrimp
Day 346: I know Kaiser wants to come in, but does he really have to mess up the patio door in his efforts to enter?
Day 347: One of Janelle’s English Angora rabbits. We had to groom them–brush, cut nails, shave them. Angoras are a lot of work.
Day 348: Another Angora. This one is a boy.
Day 349: Josh fell asleep during the Packer game. I don’t know how he can do that, but he did.
Day 350: The red in Janelle’s hair faded very fast, so we decided to switch to blue.
Day 351: Roland’s real estate course arrived. Let the studying begin.
Day 352: I had to have part of my toenail removed because of an ingrown toenail. It didn’t hurt at all, until the stuff the Dr injected wore off. Advil has become my friend.
Day 353: There seems to be a little bit of rust in our water. Time to scrub the tub again.
Day 354: I went to McDonalds with 7 teenage girls while waiting for the movie Thor to start. They are an interesting group.
Day 355: Yep. Another sunset. I really like sunsets.
Day 356: November 11, first snow. It wasn’t much, but it was there. Yuck.
Day 357: Today was the perfect day for a big pot of chili
Day 358: Usually the dogs are to blame for mud on the floor. Today, it’s one of the guys. At least the guilty party cleaned it up.
Day 359: The car that Roland worked to repair totally died, so we decided it was time to invest in a new vehicle. It’s a 2004 Buick Rendevous and I love it.
Day 360: Happy 19th birthday, Eric
