Project 365: Weeks 16, 17, & 18

May 7, 2012

The Chief is home. I hope to get back to blogging on a regular basis soon but there are some things to be done. I had an appointment with my rhuemetologist today and although I was not considered “stable” enough to totally come off MTX I can see how I am doing on the low dose. E.o.t.T. is going great–hit an all-time high bench press of 120 lbs. Now if I could just start to lose some weight again…

So for your viewing pleasure, here are 21 photos from the past few weeks. I have some guest photos as well because I found I didn’t take enough that didn’t have my children in them. Also, Heddie seems to be much more cooperative to being photogenic than her sister Crook.

Project 365: Weeks 14 & 15

April 19, 2012

Things have been a little stressful here in Snipe Wife land. Funny, I need to take a break and I get 100+ hits in a single day. Can’t say that it is anything I’ve written–I think there has been a great deal of news coming out of the Academy, etc., and I happen to come up in searches now. Either that it is the dang spam referrer traffic again. Either way I am excited to have a few new visitors, including some with maritime ties. (Welcome aboard, MG!)

So, weeks 14 & 15. In the week leading up to Easter I went over to our church building and took pictures of some things around the building.

Spring Break was good for me and the children. We went to various places. I’ll try to label and not give away too much information. Hard to stay anonymous for too long!

With two weeks worth of photos, I’m just going to insert a gallery. Hopefully they are in order… no such luck. Just enjoy.

Not included is the church sign which read this week: “I AM THE RESURRECTION. I AM THE LIFE.”

Project 365: Week 13

April 1, 2012

Week 13: March 25-31st

On Sunday I did find the church sign changed. It read “Have you read the story God is telling?”

I also took this picture of Crook & Heddie visiting me in my office. Cassie never really did this except at the end. It is nice to have them hang out with me. I’m sure when DH is home they will stay in the family room with him but for now it is fun. They even brought me the duck!

I’ve been driving by this fire station for years. This little statue and memorial honor the volunteer fire fighters and EMTs in our community.

The next two are in my massage therapist’s office.

Tranquility... setting the mood for a massage

I do like peacock feathers … just not peacocks themselves during mating season. Visit the Philly Zoo on a scout sleepover and you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about.

I love Peacock feathers

These pirates were set up in the food court for a special reading and anti-bullying program … three months ago. Why are they still here?

Ahoy there shoppers... ready for some pillaging?

Clown feet. Gives me the willies!

I'm not sure giant red feet all over the mall are going to convince a person who has a clown phobia that she wants to shop in your shoe store.

In the bright florescent lights, with no crowds around, the Easter bunny and his entourage look a little dusty and sad. Glad we really never got into the bunny pictures … wouldn’t be thrilled to take them to this display.

Sadly, this picture opportunity was looking a little sad and time weary. I hope they plan to change it out next year.

Project 365: Week 12

March 25, 2012

Week 12? Can you believe we are a quarter of the way through this year already? Where did the time go?

March 18-24

This week is all about the flowers and the blooms on the trees. One day I’d like to take T1 & T2 to see the Cherry Blossoms so that they can say they’ve done it … but I’m not a fan of crowds and I don’t want to go solo. I went once with friends when T1 was a baby. She doesn’t remember it. It was cold and dreary but it was great to see that spring was arriving.

This is a tulip tree in our front yard, outside T1’s window.

T2 was with me on a gloriously sunny afternoon. These little pink blossoms caught my eye.

T2’s eagle eye saw this lady bug on the ground. I tried to get it in focus but I’m thinking I either need a new camera or new glasses. Most likely the later.

We need a tree identification book. The girls desperately want to see Cherry blossoms or dogwoods. At first I wasn’t sure what this is, but seriously, it looks like the picture on Wikipedia… so maybe it is a Cherry Blossom.

Could this be a Cherry Blossom? What do you think?... Copyright SnipeWife

T2 was very impressed with the red poppies. I believe her exact word was “Whoa!”

A close up of the gorgeous poppy. I always think of my grandfather when I see these. We called him Poppy.

This stump cluster was such an unusual shape but instead of just taking a picture of it head on, I remembered to frame the shot with the yellow daffodil to give it a little contrast and perspective.

Aren't you glad this is not just a boring picture of a stump?
