Project 365, Days 241-250

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 247: A lazy Sunday and we ended up at Vines and Rushes Winery in Ripon for a little wine tasting.

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.

Project 365, Days 221-230

Days 221, 222, 223: All three of these photos show how happy our dogs were to have us home after a long (in their minds) vacation. They will not leave my side at all.

Day 224: It’s been so hot around here. One of our local grocery stores is offering it’s customers free cold bottles of water while they shop. I think this is a great idea.

Day 225: I came home from work to a nice surprise. My hubby got rid of an old, ugly chair and cleaned the dining/living room. Yea!!

Day 226: A couple of boxes are all that’s left of my daughter’s stuff in her room. She moved out a couple of weeks ago, but it didn’t really hit me until today. My baby has left the nest to try “adulting’

Day 227: I decided to clean the carpets today. This is the water that come out of the carpets. I think they needed to be cleaned. Yuk!!

Day 228: One of my jobs at work it to make sure there are carts available for the customers. Our cart pusher had trouble today keeping the rows nice and neat but at least there were carts.

Day 229: July 4th: Nala does not like fireworks. This is how she tried to hide from them.

Day 230: Time for new nails

 

Project 365, Days 201-209

Day 201: On Wednesdays we wear pink.

Day 202: It seems our work computer is having a hard time finding me. Maybe it’s a sign that I shouldn’t be at work today

Day 203: Parking lot sunset

Day 204: Nala loves to play with her friend Bernie

Day 205: Now that Janelle is gone, Blizzard has become my constant companion. Even when I want to sleep.

Day 206: Chinese lunch date with this guy.

Day 207: A little pre-vacation pampering

Day 208: Finally, after 7 months, we have a washing machine again.

Day 209: This is one thing I never thought I would need. It’s now required for my job to have a bartender license. I don’t tend bar, but I am licensed to do it.

Project 365, Days 191-200

Day 191: The last day of camping at Green Lake always features a Talent Show. Eric did a juggling act with the help of Greg.

Day 192: We got home after camping and went to A&W for some ice cream.

Day 193: I actually cleaned out my refrigerator. It had been way too long

Day 194: This is one of the ways I know Greg is home. John Calvin bobblehead on the mantel

Day 195: When my husband isn’t in bed, Nala makes use of his pillow to keep me company

Day 196: Break time at work. I don’t like peanuts

Day 197: A couple of my co-workers brought me a donut, Happy day. 🙂

Day 198: New dress code at work today. No more blue and khaki

Day 199: Sunset view from work

Day 200: On my way to work, once again not wearing blue and khaki. I’m loving the new dress code

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 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.
