Day 90 of 365

I finally got a picture of the latest "What is it?"
It is a glitter bottle.  When shaken, the glitter swirls around.  
Left alone, the glitter settles to the bottom.   
They are supposed to be calming.  I've seen it called a "time out" bottle.
I just think they are fun to watch.

Day 89 of 365

The winter was hard on our elm tree. 
Clean up has begun.
This was not my original choice for today's picture. 
Has anyone else had trouble with pictures loading sideways? 
I am not a happy camper.

Day 85 of 365

Sometimes we actually make the recipes we find on Pinterest.
M pinned this recipe for Teriyaki Meatballs. 
We had it over rice.  It was delicious.

The beginnings of a new project.

I'll post the result on More Curiously when it is done.

Edit: I have posted my finished project here instead.

Day 82 of 365

Cousins (GB#1 and GB#2) share a snack in a bassinet 
that is way too small for either of them.

Day 79 of 365

Today marked the Vernal Equinox.  
Every year we stand an egg on end. 
(Evidently it is a myth that it is any easier on this day than any other, 
but we do it anyway.)
This year M did the honors.
Happy Spring.

Day 78 of 365

It was a busy day at the finch feeder today.
I especially wanted to show you that the male Goldfinches are getting their color back.
And lastly, my funny acrobat squirrel paid the feeder a visit.

Day 77 of 365

Despite all my hard work (here and here), 
sticky spots remain all over the floor. 
Refinishers have been called. 
Work begins in the morning.

Day 73 of 365

While I have been trying to get my strength back,
I have found a new obsession, 
maybe because it is quilt-like.

Thank you for all your get well wishes. 
 I am hoping to be able to get out of the house tomorrow 
and catch up on what's happening in the blog world next week.

Day 71 of 365

I ventured out to get a shot of what's left of this morning's snow.
And since we are all still a bit under the weather, 
I took this one from inside through the shutters. 
I think he's done with snow also.

Day 70 of 365

Feeling rather puny today. 
Everyone in the house is sick.
Hoping for a better day tomorrow.

Day 69 of 365

Merriam-Webster's Word of the day: 
Gritty
I have owned this nail file for more than 45 years. 
It came with its own case.

Day 66 of 365

I've decided to join in on the 40 bags in 40 days challenge. 
Today I tackled the pantry.  These are the oldest things I found there.

Day 65 of 365

This is not my quilt.  It was entered in the quilt show I attended today.  
I don't like to show pictures of quilts from shows because I'm sure 
I would not properly credit all that need to be credited.  
For that reason I've decided to share just a close up of some wonderful hand stitching.  
I have to tell you that this was incredibly hard to photograph.  
You don't realize it until you go to take the picture that there is a slight breeze in the giant room.  
The quilt moves ever so slightly and throws the picture out of focus 
especially in the super close up ones.  
This was one of the better pictures I took today.

Day 64 of 365

I ordered a couple books about two of my favorite things, quilting and knitting. 
They arrived today. 
I am so excited.

Tonight I got to be the sous chef while M did the actual cooking. 
Thanks, M!

Day 61 of 365

I know it's an odd photo with reflections from inside my kitchen, 
but as I was making dinner tonight, just as it was getting dark, 
I looked out and saw this rabbit under the feeders eating some leftovers from the birds. 
I had to stop and watch him for a while.

Day 60 of 365

"Salt and pepper, like my hair.  Sweet like my disposition."
That is a direct quote from Fireball (DH) when I asked what I should write about this photo.
