WOW! Three weeks in a row for me so far!!!!!
Wooo to the Whoo for me.
Y’all go over to Make Music From Your Heart to the Lord for this weeks edition of Project 365.
Sunday, January 17
God never ceases to amaze me in how awesome He is in all He creates. Starting the week off in worship is just the thing needed to set the tone for the whole week. Nearly every every Sunday I look at the alter flowers and wish I had my camera to capture just how beautiful they really are.
Well wish no more…
After worship, I’m sure you experience this as well, the lingering, the gathering of friends and the conversation. For as much as you want to head to lunch or you hear the gently whisper of the sofa calling your name for your afternoon nap you, you remain and have fellowship and conversation.
Well skoots1mom and I were doing just that and I look over and see this….
It’s a sweet potato y’all and why it was strategically place on the door jam to the family center will forever be a mystery. But since this is Project 365 and I did have my camera well I thought it was worthy of capturing for posterity.

At some point, almost everyday I look forward to one of these. I love my cappuccino maker and some days just require extra foam….

An unexpected ray of sunshine came for a visit.
Wednesday, January 20
After my morning bible study I had some errands to run and some shopping to do. The skies were gloomy and gray with the expectation of a chilly rain shower approached.
Thursday, January 21
Pots and pans and pans and pots and soap and scrubbies and…well you get the picture. Some of my pots just don't fit in the dishwasher.
Friday, January 22
My sweet Grandma went home to be with Jesus in June of 2003. My Sunday school class sent this Peace Lily to the funeral and I have, in what can only be described as a true miracle, been able to keep it alive for all these years.
I love my garden outside, but maintaining the same level of success with my indoor plants is something entirely different. Every now and again for some unknown reason to me anyway my Peace Lily will develop these yellow leaves.
Any advice from knowledgeable indoor plant lovers would be welcome. It doesn't happen often and the plant seems to recover after a while but I would greatly love to know why this happens??????
I’m sure it’s an operator error??
Not enough water, too much water, too hot, too cold, maybe it’s just angry with me for all the attention I give to my Christmas Cactus????
It looks a bit better after removing all the yucky yellow leaves.

Two things of significance happen today!
This close up kind of gives you an idea of the texture of this project. It has these wonderful little ridges of projections that give it a wonderfully textured feel to it. You just run your hands over it and it gives the palms of you hands a mini massage as they pass over the little bumps. I am sure there is some technical crochet term for the bumps but I fondly refer to them as “buggers”.
The second picture worthy thing that happen was this little guy.
I have to back track a bit for this one. It was back prior to Thanksgiving maybe even further back, I was in the process of doing some baking. I had my trusty brown sugar container out to refill and I went in search of my sweet little terra cotta brown sugar bear, it keeps your brown sugar from getting hard and clumpy. I had been out of brown sugar and I had taken the little bear out of the container and put it in my kitchen drawer so I could wash my brown sugar container. Sounds simple enough, right?
Well I searched high and low in my kitchen. My little bear was no where to be found. I had a faint memory of putting the bear in one of my kitchen drawers but after a thorough inspection it was no where to be found.
Now at this point in my life with the hormonal surges that just sort happen the fact that I could not find that silly little bear sent me over the edge.
I was like a mad “rainman” woman as I scoured my kitchen looking for this tiny little terra cotta bear.
“Uh OOO, 17 minute to Wopner”
I emptied each and every kitchen drawer
completely emptied everything out of them and shook out the crumbs and dust into the sink kind of empty them out I had, because I knew that I had put the bear somewhere in my kitchen.
I think I may have even been transported to an alternate universe because after I did it once I slipped into what can only be describes as a hormonal break from reality and I did it again.
The bear was not in my kitchen.
The only plausible explanation was that Aliens' had landed in the night and abducted my brown sugar bear and were conducting some serous scientific research.
Phase one was complete as the aliens took note of my complete mental breakdown as I scoured my kitchen drawers for a third time. I feel certain that they were laughing their alien bootees off at me from there space ship.
Well this morning as I reached for my cling wrap what do my wandering eyes did appear but my sweet little brown sugar bear.
Say it ain’t so……
Seriously y’all I emptied out that drawer and it was NOT there.
My conclusion: I now have the only terra cotta brown sugar bear that has been abducted by aliens.
I think I may send this picture on the National Enquirer and see if I can get some big bucks for it.
EXCLUSIVE: Bear reunited with mental patient, they had a joyous reunion and then moved on to make chocolate chip cookies.
