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

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 330: My little helper

Day 332: Fall colors outside my bedroom window.
Day 333:ย  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 335: Greg’s last soccer game of his high school career.
Day 336:ย  The carrot crop from my garden. Everything is now harvested.

Day 339: Happy birthday to my 14 year old ๐Ÿ™‚
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 343: OK, this one was taken the same day as yesterday’s photo. After the bleach, red was the color of choice.
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

Day 80: It’s hard to tell in this photo of Greg’s hand, but it’s very swollen. Why? Because he and a bunch of friends played a silly game where they slap each others hands until one pulls away. Greg won several times. However, the fact that he can hardly use his hand might mean that he actually lost.
Day 81: Janelle cleaned her room!! Yea!!
Day 82: One of Blizzard’s favorite places to sleep–on my bed with all the clean, folded laundry
