We're at it again! Welcome to my week 6 and 7 of the infamous Project 365! This has been a real challenge, especially once the "novelty" of it wore off a bit. Taking a picture every day is not difficult, it's the remembering to take a picture...and then finding something interesting that I haven't already shot!
Well, despite the difficulties, I managed to get one for every day these last two weeks except for a couple. I was having an allergic reaction to some medication I was taking, and was popping Benedryl like it was candy. I don't know if that stuff affects everybody else like it did me, but I'm pretty sure I left the planet for about 5 days. I should be the textbook insomniac now that I've seemingly had a total of about 118 hours of sleep out of a possible 120 in those 5 days. It's no wonder parents joke about giving their toddler a dose of that stuff on an airplane...I wouldn't wake up from screaming jet engines either!
Anyway, on with the show:
Sunday, Feb. 1
I'll bet you can guess which Sunday this was...
Super Bowl Sunday...and my DH made me take a picture of Arizona while they were winning. It's not that he's a huge Cardinal fan, it's that he's very much an anti-Steelers fan. It's the Dallas Cowboy blue blood in him...he can't help it.
Sunday, Feb. 1
Since I missed a picture later on, I'll use two from this day.
This is how Lil'bit fell asleep. WITH his daddy coaching from the "sidelines."
No, I did not give him Benedryl.
Monday, Feb. 2
This is Mini Me playing computer games (probably Lego Star Wars)...again.
That boy would live on the computer if I let him.
Tuesday, Feb. 3
This was an amazing morning...the snowflakes you see were not only a neat surprise, (you northerners can quit rolling your eyes now), but it was truly the most beautiful thing I've ever seen weather-wise. The snowflakes were so tiny, and the sun was hitting them exactly right, so that from our back door you couldn't see the flakes themselves...only golden glitter.
Thursday, Feb. 5
Mini Me doing some schoolwork.
Just so you can appreciate how much this picture means to me, Math used to be such a bear for him to work through. It's not that it was hard for him, but it didn't come as "easy" as all his other subjects, so he thought he just "wasn't good at it."
Now he's beyond that, and I couldn't be happier about it.
Friday, Feb. 6
Ugh...this is just a smidgen of the beginning of the
Great Horrific Allergic Reaction of 2009.
This is the last thing I remember until Wednesday.
Saturday, Feb. 7
This was the day my face and eyes started to swell. I thought I would thrill you with my pathetic "help me!" eyes. I literally forgot I took this picture until today, when I downloaded.
Sunday, Feb. 8
We went to Sunday School and then came home. My sock monkey slippers were my constant companion that day. Them and my Benedryl.
Wednesday, Feb. 11
I give you this shot, on this day, because DH has made an appointment -- one week from today -- to get his hair cut! All that hair is going to become a wig for some lucky little girl someday soon!
Thursday, Feb. 12
Gettin' a little artsy with this one.
I love old glass doorknobs. This is one of three that DH mounted on weathered cedar. We use them as coat racks and backpack hangers.
Friday, Feb. 13
You're gonna see some more of this, um, thing.
It's a bar-be-que pit that DH is going to overhaul for a guy. This is actually an older picture, but I wanted to show you what I've been working on today. And tomorrow, too. And the next day, and the next...seriously. I'll have some "after" pictures when we're done.
Saturday, Feb. 14
As DH and I were working on said pit, the boys were busy catching lizards and making a habit for them. There is a lizard on the left end of the bottom stick, dipping his head into water. The pile of rocks was a "cool shaded place" where the lizard could "sleep."
Now go see the others participating in Project 365 at Sara's Make Music from Your Heart to the Lord! It's a fun project...join in if you haven't already!
