Day 261, Wednesday, September 18, 2013

I love to eat mushrooms, but I won't be tasting these!  They grow in our back yard along the leftover stump of the tree we had cut down.  They don't stay in the yard.  They come and go as the moisture changes in the ground.

Day 260, Tuesday, September 17, 2013

I have been saying since Coco came home with me, if I had a papoose to put him in, he would be happy.  He thinks he has to be touching me.  Jim found this bag and bought it for me.  I picked Coco up and put him in the bag and he just sat there looking around. I walked all over the house with him in the bag.  It will be going on our next walk, because I have to carry him in a few spots!

Day 259, Monday, September 16, 2013

The sunlight was shining on these blooms tonight.  They are the last few of my flowers.

Day 257, Sunday, September 15, 2013

I went to Kohl's this afternoon.  I rarely miss a 30% off sale!

Day 257, Saturday, September 14, 2013

We got "Thank You" cards today!  Guess they liked their gifts!

Day 256, Friday, September 13, 2013

This van was parked in the Costco parking lot.  I watched as 6 children got out of the van with their mother.  I hope Dad stayed at home with the other 5!

Day 255, Thursday, September 12, 2013

I tried a Subway salad.  I liked it, but it didn't give me enough time to do any Zentangle!

Day 254, Wednesday, September 11, 2013

I have been playing with my camera, changing the focus, light and zoom.  I learn something new every time I am behind the lens!

Day 253, Tuesday, September 10, 2013

This morning the street lights were still on when Coco and I went for our walk.

Day 252, Monday, September 9, 2013

Yes, this is John.  Yes, he is at Old Navy.  Yes, he is posing as a mannequin!  No, he is not getting paid.  No, Old Navy doesn't sell St. Louis Cardinal merchandise.

Day 251, Sunday, September 8, 2013

We have been seeing hummingbirds at our feeders.  We have 3 different feeders.  Jim changed the food and they seem to like it better.  They are really small and move really fast.  The hummingbirds will fly to Mexico in a few weeks.

Day 250, Saturday, September 7, 2013

This is evidence we had little guys here today for lunch.  We got the chalk out and drew on the sidewalk.  Nate, his girlfriend and her two children came over for hamburgers and hot dogs.  (I think they liked the watermelon shark!)  It was fun to meet everyone and hope they come back to visit soon!

Day 249, Friday, September 6, 2013

We have two cookouts on Saturday, so I thought I would try to carve a watermelon for the fruit salad.  Not too bad for my first attempt.  It was a sticky mess getting all of the watermelon out of the end of the melon.

Day 248, Wednesday, September 5, 2013

I walk past this flower bed almost every morning.  This was the last flower still alive.  The temp has been so hot, the leaves and stems are all dried out.  It won't be long and this one will be gone, too!

Day 247, Wednesday, September 4, 2013

I think this watermelon has been the best one this season.  Watermelon is one of my favorite fruits!

Day 246, Tuesday, September 3, 2013

I overbooked myself tonight.  Coco and I had puppy class and Nikki had a card class, too.  Coco did a great job at puppy class and thanks to my BFF, I got to finish all the cards!  Christmas is coming!

Day 245, Monday, September 2, 2013

We replaced the shutters on our house this morning.  I couldn't believe how faded the shutters were.  We didn't have enough to go all the way around the house.  Jim ordered two more pair and we will replace those as soon as they come in.  The house looks so much better!

Day 244, Sunday, September 1, 2013

I bought new fall flowers for my vase in the living room.  These flowers were on sale at Michael's today.  I had to have Jim cut the stems with the wire cutters because I couldn't cut them myself.

Day 243, Saturday, August 31, 2013

This has got to be one of the worst pictures I have ever taken!!  I could not get all of these people to smile at the same time.  I took at least 6 shots and this one is the funniest (at least I think so!)  I still love them and years from now, I hope they see this picture and laugh, because I am!  It was a great Fish Fry at Rob's tonight...except for being over 90 degrees!

Day 242, Friday, August 30, 2013

I got an email last night from Fitbit.  I have official walked 1000 miles since December 27, 2012.  I enjoy walking outside with Nikki and Coco in the mornings.  We walk for 1/2 hour.  Most evenings I walk with Coco for 20 to 30 minutes.

Day 241, Thursday, August 29, 2013

If you look really close, Cindy has a bandage on her right hand.  She hit the back of her hand on the printer drawer at school today.  She had to go to the Urgent Care and got 6 stitches in her hand!!

Day 240, Wednesday, August 28, 2013

I cut the letters for our Tiger Time Line.  Project 365 has arrived at our school.  I will take a picture everyday and journal about it.  Tiffany Clark sent me a link to Pinterest with the idea.  I can't wait to get this project going.

Day 239, Tuesday, August 27, 2013

I have been working on some pictures and came across this picture of Coco.  I saw his picture on the internet when I was looking for a breeder to buy a Havanese puppy.  This is my Coco at 8 weeks, two weeks before I bought him!  He is in puppy school on Tuesday evenings for the next 5 weeks.

Day 238, Monday, August 26, 2013

When I pulled into my parking space this morning, I looked down to turn the key off in my car and the mileage was 79,000.  This 2005 Chevy has been a really good car!

Day 237, Sunday, August 25, 2013

We went to the movies this morning.  We saw "We're the Miller's".  It was pretty funny, although I don't really appreciate the language.

Day 236, Saturday, August 24, 2013

Coco and I walked this morning for 2.2 miles.  We walked to support my friend Georgie.  She lives in Colorado Springs with her family.  Today is the Buddy Walk to support Down's Syndrome.  It took us 51 minutes to finish our walk.

Day 235, Friday, August 23, 2013

I stopped and bought another watermelon.  The melons have been really good this year!

Day 234, Thursday, August 22, 2013

Back at my lunch time routine of Zentangle after I eat my sandwich.  I enjoy doing 5 minutes of drawing.  It is very relaxing.
