I just finished reading Day 1 of the Bible in 90 Days. The story of creation stood out to me as I was reading. I love watching the browns of winter turning into the greens of spring here in Wisconsin. Can you imagine what it must have looked like watching all the green plants and trees and all the brightly colored flowers appear out of nothing? What an amazing sight that must have been.
Day 111, March 8, 2014: I have discovered that I love these candy bars. Not quite as much as peanut butter m&ms, but almost.
Day 112: The snow is starting to melt!!
Day 113: If you look real closely, you can see several deer in the field. This is about a mile down our road, taken from the car, so it’s not very clear, but there are deer, I promise.
Day 114: Choreographing dance at church
Day 115: Greg’s new truck. At least, it’s new to him.
Day 116: This is what Greg uses as a key chain. Yes. That’s a mousetrap.
Day 117: Blizzard hates it when Janelle leaves him. Once a week, we have to go straight from dog obedience to dance and Blizzard has to wait in the car with me during the 45 minute dance class. He spends the whole time going from window to window, watching and whining, until Janelle comes back.
Day 118: There’s still snow in the field, but not nearly as much as a couple of weeks ago. Maybe spring will come one of these days.
Day 119: The best part of St Patrick’s Day? McDonald’s Shamrock shake 🙂
Day 120: Working hard to get the dance perfect before Palm Sunday
Day 121: Greg found this in one of our sheds. He thinks it’s cool. I think it’s gross.
Day 122: The tomatoes are starting to come up
Day 123: Eric’s new car. After over a month of waiting for insurance money, he was finally able to buy a new car.
Day 124: On our way to Iowa, we stopped for breakfast and had to invest in some of these chocolate, peanut butter mammoth muffins. Yum!
Day 125: Cousins, some who don’t want to get their picture taken
Day 126: On our way home, the icicles along the Mississippi River.
Day 127: Again, you have to look closely, but there are about 20 deer in that field across the street from our house.
Day 128: So much for spring. It’s snowing again.
Day 129: The results of last night’s snow fall.
Day 130: At least it’s spring weather this time. Rain is better than snow this late in the year.
Day 10: November 27: I finally got around to dealing with the carrots from my garden. There were some really big carrots.
Day 11: One of the treats during the Thanksgiving Day football game–fruit salsa with cinnamon chips.
Day 12: Another Thanksgiving Day pic (so, I guess this is technically still day 11). The pre-dinner food line up. We had to have something to eat during the football game. We weren’t quite so hungry at turkey time
Day 13: And now, a couple pictures that I didn’t take, but just have to include. Greg’s senior pictures. Is he really a senior already?
Day 14: Another from the senior picture shoot
Day 15: Since we don’t have a recent, good picture of Janelle, we had a couple of her done during Greg’s senior picture shoot.
Day 16: We got a new refrigerator. And, best of all, it was free. My favorite price.
Day 17: Janelle, 2 of her friends and their piano teacher played their violins in the mall while manning the Salvation Army kettle.
Day 18: Practicing for the upcoming Christmas Cantata at church
Day 19: It’s sock folding day. Whenever the sock basket starts to overflow, I know it’s time to sort and fold socks.
Day 20: Janelle and her dance friends from church entertained in the mall. Janelle choreographed this dance to “Christmas This Year” by Toby Mac. Also on the entertainment list this Saturday was the church’s children’s choir and a couple of solos on piano and violin.
Day 21: Greg had several “extra” roles in a production of A Christmas Carol: The Musical. I don’t remember which role this costume was for. I think he had about 6 different costumes.
Day 22: Co-op geography class. Not sure if they’re working hard or hardly working…
Day 23: It can be extremely difficult to fold laundry with Blizzard around. He loves to make himself comfortable in the baskets and can get a bit unhappy when clothes are removed for folding.
Day 24: Our new car shows the outside temp. On evenings like this one, I really wish it didn’t. That is just too cold.
Day 25: Step one in the making of fried ice cream for my co-op classes–making ice cream balls.
Day 26: Once the ice cream balls are frozen, I add a coating of corn flakes and cinnamon and they’re ready for frying at Monday’s class.
Day 27: I’m thinking the boys’ room needs a bit of cleaning before family comes next weekend.
Day 28: In an attempt to get organized before my family gets here, I cleaned out and organized the freezer. Each shelf has the food for a different day. Sunday’s food in on the top shelf, Mondays on the second, and so on. That way, I don’t have to search the whole freezer every day for the necessary food.
Day 29: Co-op classes Christmas party
Day 30: And, since I didn’t take a photo today, another from yesterday. Food from the Christmas party. I know. Boring.
Day 232, July 10, 2013: Lots of lettuce from the garden
Day 233: A group from our church went to Karitos, a worship arts conference in Chicago for 3 days. The girls had fun relaxing in the pool our first night there
Day 234: Before one of the workshops started, the girls showed off one of their dances for the instructors
Day 235: Our group danced in the talent showcase on Saturday
Day 236: The first peppers and broccoli from the garden
Day 237: VBS skit practice
Day 238: Besides being VBS season, it’s also 4-H season. We’re busy getting projects ready for the fair. Here, Janelle is working on one of her ceramics projects.
Day 239: Greg working on one of his vases in ceramics
Day 240: My project. None of my kids would do the Cheesehead Santa for me, so I decided to do it myself.
Day 241: One of the Facebook groups I’m part of has a “silly Saturday” challenge every week. This week’s challenge was to do a plank in a unique place or in a unique way.
Day 242: An afternoon of working in the yard, carrying branches, left an allergic reaction on my arm. It went away fairly quickly, though, so it wasn’t poison ivy
Day 243: Another rainy day. Things were just drying out nicely when about an inch and a half fell in our area.
Day 244: I didn’t take this one, but am including it anyway. My softball team
Day 245: One of Greg’s completed vases, ready for the fair
Day 246: My completed Cheesehead Santa
Day 247: After my daily workout–I nailed it today 🙂
