Wed., Feb. 25Th...There's NOTHING like fresh, defective IGA tortillas. I ran to the store for something else. Had to walk by the tortillaria and there they were! The kids were so happy. Tues., Feb. 24Th...Baby, it's warm outside. This could be Wed. too. It is warmer than usual. I think we broke a record.

Mon., Feb. 23rd...As I walked passed DS's room I noticed these cleaning bottles nicely lined up. I asked him why they were in there. "I was cleaning." I thought to myself, "Cleaning? What?" He has been getting better.
There's no Sunday. I usually don't take any on Sundays.
Sat. Feb. 21st...I have two for you! We had a concert at the coffee shop. Here I am with two of my friends from church.

Here's my hubby and Ben. You can't see the other Ben (on the drums).

Fri., Feb. 20Th...First sign of spring! Our peonies are starting to come up!

Thur., Feb. 19Th...We don't get much rain at all, so I watered. It has been warm for a few days and I needed to wash the dust away.
We have sold 4 bags of pecans since I posted the pecan photo!

Sun. Feb. 15Th...we got invited over the the Quinlan's after the pm service. The guys are cleaning up the dishes while the ladies are changing! What great guys!! Mon. Feb. 16Th...President's Day. Here's what our dining room looks like. Our dining room is also our school room. I found some more detailed coloring pages for the kids. We did five a day. On the last we did 8. We have studied the US Presidents throughout the year. This idea was just a random thought and the kids really grabbed onto it!

Tues. Feb 17Th...WINDY!!
There's no vanity on windy days.

Wed. Feb. 18Th...We have two pecan trees which produce way more than we can use. We give them away to friends and family. A friend of our suggested that we sell them on a local online yard sale. We posted them and have gotten a number of people inquire. No buyers yet. So, here the bags sit waiting for a buyer.

Feb. 14Th, another hot air balloon didn't land in our yard. We have two pecan trees in our front yard. DH was getting ready to shake the trees. Let me explain. DH loves to have things just so and tries to make the work easier. Which is good. He also loves free things and loves finding uses for them. Hence the parachute in our yard. Yes, it's a military parachute. He took the chute out of the bag, cut the strings off. (I am amazed at how big it was.) His goal was to spread it around the tree so when the pecans fall he could easily (it's a process) dump (pour) them into a big trash barrel. However, as we were trying to spread the chute around the tree the wind was blowing up the chute like a balloon. It became a bit of a chore. He decided to wait until later when the wind died down. There was a man who drove by (I'm not kidding) four times. I guess it's not every day that you see people trying to spread a parachute out around their tree in the wind. Feb. 13Th, Fri...I grilled burgers. I haven't grilled in a long time. So everyone was very excited to have grilled burgers. DS would ask me every day for a week if we were having burgers.
Feb. 12Th, Thurs...I finally filed a BIG pile. While doing that I shredded a lot of old papers in our file cabinet.

Here I am catching up...
Feb. 10th... Tues. it was finally cold enough for a fire!!! Yeah. I love it when we have fores. I got this picture just as the fire got going. DH just blew on it and there it goes! Feb. 9th...Mon. got my song mojo back! In our band we more or less play covers, but we change the words. I am the main word changer and I haven't gotten any songs changed in awhile. So I pretty much locked myself in the office and jammed out! I got two songs changed! YEAH!
Feb. 8th...Sun I finally have a Sunday photo. I have been needing black dress shoes for some time. When I found these, I fell in love!

Feb. 7th...Sat. The big day! We finally performed our play *One Last Chance*! We were pretty much at the Tays all day Sat. In the end 16 people gave their lives to Jesus and many more heard the gospel.

Feb. 6th... Friday We took C to finally get her hair trimmed. She got a face frame on layers. Here two gals are blow drying her hair. It's pretty thick. Taking there photos everyday is good for my pride...whipping out my camera everywhere. LOL!

Feb. 5th...Thurs. this is me sewing (fixing) DH costume for the play. I am not a seamstress at all, so this was a great pain to be honest. His headband went missing, so I had to make him another. He was Ponitus Pilate (sp?).

Feb. 4th... Wed. Our DS loves to make his own swords, guns, etc out of sticks. Here is a picture of a bow and sword that he made. He hung them on a plant cane right outside our door.

Feb. 3rd... Tues. At Scrap Matters they have a photo challenge. Take a picture of a heart that's not red or plastic. Here's my photo for the challenge. *Disclaimer* No good coffee was used or harmed for this photo!

Feb. 2nd... Mon. my walking partner, Dolly & I went for a walk today.

Jan. 28Th, Wed...This one's out of order. Sorry. This is about as exciting as our day went. I had to go to the bank to cash some checks. Jan. 30Th, Fri...This is my favorite places to walk. I still hadn't taken the pic for the day. When I got there I saw this elderly couple walking and knew I had my photo! I ended up passing them. I looked back and they were holding hands. They kept at a steady pace. Probably how they've lived their lives and stayed married this long. One day maybe someone will take our photo like this.
Jan. 29Th, Thurs...We went bird watching at a nearby lake. It's man made. Not too many people know about it, so the birds are pretty wild. We brought popcorn for the ducks...they all flew away. So, my little ducks ate it on the way home!

Jan 27Th, Tues...I held a RAK on my scrapping site. This is how I picked the winners! Pretty tech savvy, eh!

Jan. 26Th, Mon...Grocery Shopping day! I go grocery shopping every other Mon. So when I go our cart is always full! I was able to stay pretty under the budget too!! Which is always a good thing!

There is no Sunday photo.

Jan. 24, Sat...This one's for my new friend Brenda S. Yes, it's two McDonald's! You are looking at the new McD's going up. Next to it is the old one. Not everyday you see two McD's next to each other! Brenda, I'll let you know when it's done!! Maybe we can meet there! LOL! Jan. 23, Fri...My SIL sent us these yummy peppermint bark! It went super fast!

Jan. 22, Thurs...The kids and I took apart a radio. We got it all together. It didn't work because the batteries had corroded in it. But it was great fun. Oh, it was birthday too!

21/365...Wed. Jan. 21...This ball has been sitting in various places in our front yard for a few weeks. Every time I look out the window, I think the would make a cool photo. So, this morning, in my PJ's I bathroom, went out and took it! The neighbors probably think I'm weird, but I don't mind!

I liked the way it looked in black & white too!

19/365...Tues., Jan....We have two BIG picture boards at church that show pictures of our events, etc. Every three months I redo them. Here I am. It is usually a two day project. One day (a few hours) going through, editing, printing the pictures. One day to put it all together. I finished the boards at 9:00pm.
Thanks for looking!

I have changed some settings, so you should be able to make a comment now...sorry MS!

Jan. 19th, Mon...DH 40th birhtday! This picture was like the fourth attempt at taking a picture of him blowing out his candle. He kept blowing it out right before I snapped teh shot! We were all busting up!!
He and DS, with a few people from church went Wild Boar hunting during the day. They didn't get anything, but spied out the land for other hunts.
DD & I went shopping (Christmas/birthday $). She was unsuccessful. I found a couple of things.
For DH's birthday meal we had Mexicali of his mother's favorites! And leftover Buttermilk pie.

Okay...I am a bit mad! I just realized that DS must have deleted the photo I took on Sunday! He was reading the Sunday Funnies. He didn't want his photo taken.
Jan. 17th, Sat...we are all in a play at church...One Last Chance. DS & I are behind the scenes. Dh is the bartender & DD is a person in the mall. Here is a glimpse of the goings on before...the setting up for practice.

Saturday, January 17, 2009

These are a bit out of order, sorry.
Here's Wed. Jan 14th...C got her space maintainer out!!! She's had it in for what seems like two years. I so wanted to take a photo of the spacer sitting on the clean silver tray on the white paper with the instruments around it. But my pride got the better of me. The Dr. even asked C if she wanted to take the, gross. (That would've made for a good photo! LOL) So now she can chew gum, eat carmels, etc. Friday, Jan. 16th...C's Birthday!! These are two of the three buttermilk pies C & I made. We had youth bible study then her party. There were about 20 teens, of whom 5 were girls. We had a good time.
Thursday, Jan. 15th...Here's what "rockers" really look like! Heehee! We had band practice, in the church nursery! We practiced acoustic. Usually we are amped up!

Jan. 12th

I missed yesterday! Have you seen it? This photo is probably on someone's worst dressed list somewhere! LOL! If I would've taken one of my hair then I would've made it for sure!

Anyway, the kids & I went for another bike ride, PE. This is how I looked!

Jan. 10th

Tonight we played Old Maid. and guess who ended up being the Old Maid? ME!

Friday, January 9, 2009

I wanted to show you two of the LO's I've made for the 365 Project.


Jan. 9th Why an egg? And is that cookie dough again? Yes, it's cookies. I love to bake. I like to bake when I'm stressed out. Our truck was in the shop and supposed to be fixed yesterday. DH drove it home. But that was it. We have a new clutch, but can't get it into gear!! He had to get it towed again to the shop. Thank God for friends with gas guzzling trucks!! There are some other things on my mind as well. Things I can only pray about! Now get to the egg you say! I made the cookie dough (sugar & spice) eggs. The kids went next door for an egg. The girl gave us two! In return we gave her fresh cookies out of the oven! Yum! Jan. 8th I was too busy to post yesterday's. Here's the story on this one. The kids and I had a busy day. DH got off work, came & picked me up so we could get the truck from the mechanics. He then had to go to a wake for a coworker. There wasn't much time for dinner. So we went to KFC.
Love his face? He took one of me too, but I have control of the blog! mwahhh!

Jan. 7th

The kids and I rode our bikes to the library today. I wanted to get a picture of the wheels. When I got home and loaded the pics onto our computer I noticed that I got the kids going into the library! Haha!!

Jan. 6th

Ok, I actually have two for you! The whole family seems to want to get into this! The first one was taken by my DH. He served up some Neapolitan ice cream tonight. This is how you would get it served if you went to an Italian restaurant in Boston. You should have seen us last night. We were holding the container and trying to "scoop" out the slices. He actually ended up cutting the carton in half! If you look closely, you'll see the heart in the strawberry section! Here is my attempt at today's photo! I had these big plans of a cool shot of DS on his scooter. Just the feet, the evening sun shining down,'s what I got. Poor kids are tired of me taking their photos!
