Day 334 of 2021

I took this picture last night before I went to bed. 
Technically it was today as it was around 3:00AM. 
These headbands will look so cute on the flower girls at Saturday's wedding. 
I made them very late last night (very early this morning) 
because they needed to be done 
and I still had enough energy to accomplish just that.

Day 333 of 2021

I'm wrapping up a few last wedding things today. 
When a copper wire basket needs to be gold, 
enter my DIY spray painting booth made from an extra large box
 that just entered my home via a home improvement purchase
 and some fishing line. 
I hung the basket from the fishing line
 through a hole in the top of the booth 
and sprayed all sides at one time.

Day 332 of 2021

Hello, from downtown. 
I do wish I had thought of taking the picture earlier in the day.
I believe the light would have been better.

Day 330 of 2021

I was working in the workshop this evening. 
It faces west and has windows. 
I did not miss this wonderful view.


Day 329 of 2021

Happy Thanksgiving

Day 328 of 2021

The last of the Thanksgiving Day food prep dishes are clean. 


Day 327 of 2021

Fireball in the midst of leaf pick up. 
The most interesting part of this picture
 is that he is wearing a hand-me-up jacket from Little E 
from more than twenty years ago. 
It's still in great shape and he uses it as his cold weather yard work jacket. 
The ear warmer headband was made by Little E much more recently.

Little E back in high school wearing the same jacket.

Another GB is another year older. 
She's getting so tall. 
Happy Birthday, GB#2!

Day 324 of 2021

Seriously, CVS? 
This happening way too often. 
Last time it was a handwritten sign claiming a water main break.

Day 323 of 2021

I know it may not look like it here, 
but I organized, cut 
and framed a lot of wedding paper goods and signage today. 
Check that off the list.


Day 322 of 2021

In the 1982 animated short film The Snowman, 
the original version is narrated at the beginning 
with a wintery scene very similar to this. 
It felt very wintery today.
Now I want to sit down and watch The Snowman by Raymond Briggs.

Day 321 of 2021

The train table was in need of some serious dusting 
so I got out the vacuum and the horsehair brush. 
I'm feeling much better about it. 
 I noticed as I was getting ready to post this picture though I missed something. 
Do you see what doesn't belong? 

I also noticed that the last four posts didn't have much color in them 
so I'm glad I happened to find a bright and colorful subject for today.


Day 320 of 2021

The things you find while looking for other things-
This time it's one of my very favorite pictures of me with my dad.

Day 319 of 2021

With just over two weeks until M and the Trumpeter's wedding day, 
and so much to do, 
my regular planner just isn't going to cut it. 
I'm transferring everything from my planner and my phone calendar 
onto these huge squares. 
From there I'll add specific tasks on specific days and get everything done.

Day 317 of 2021

Evidently this is "aleon phisics." 
I was told to memorize it and that there WOULD be a test later.


Day 316 of 2021

When you know it's going to be a busy day 
and the picture presents itself, you take the picture. 
The leaf looks suspended but it is really sitting on the windshield. 
The picture is taken from inside the car.

Day 314 of 2021

I'm reading through a pattern I'd like to make in this magazine I just received. 
I like to read through a pattern before I begin
 not only to make sure I understand it, 
but also to make sure I understand what I am getting myself into. 
Does anyone else do that?

Day 313 of 2021

I was trying to do some car crocheting when I realized I did not have a marker
 that is needed to indicate the first stitch in each round. 
I couldn't tell where I was in this round, how far I had to go 
or what I did to make the shape start to flatten out instead of stay nice and round. 
I got nauseous tying to figure it out - dark yarn, moving car - so I stopped. 
I'll figure it out tomorrow after I find a marker, 
have better light and am sitting still in a chair.

Day 312 of 2021

This wedding build was finished just before all the daylight was gone.

Day 311 of 2021

It turns out that my idea on how to build a very large, top-heavy structure
 by building it upside down
 and then enlisting some help from next door to turn it over, 
was a very good idea indeed.

Day 309 of 2021

On the way home from last night's game, 
we made a stop to have Fireball evaluated at the emergency room.  
He is doing fine and will follow up with his physician as directed.


Day 308 of 2021

Halftime at Thursday Night Football. 

Please pardon the late post. 
(photo taken 11-4-2021)
As you will see in the next post, 
we made a stop on the way home from the game.

Day 307 of 2021

The temperature dropped into the 20s overnight. 
That was enough for the ginkgo tree to drop leaves like it was raining. 
Usually this happens after the leaves have mostly turned yellow, 
but today's leaves were mostly green.
