Project 365 ~ Week 31: The week where I just thought I took a picture every day but clearly I was delusional….

I think I must have been seriously delusional, because I really did think I had taken a picture every day this week, hormones, teenage book bag crisis, scheduling issue at the doctors office must have take their toll on my mental state because when I downloaded the pictures for the week there were a lot of missing days………..

It was a half and half kind of week, half crazy and half relaxing. Once I got the girl child safely deposited at my sisters I was able to put the life and death crisis of a new book bag behind me, for a little while anyway! The remainder of the week was very peaceful if not down right boring. I think the most strenuous thing I did after wednesday was sort a few piles of yard, dice up a few peppers and catch up on my movies on the DVR. I think we all need those down times every once and a while.

Well I finished up this prayer shawl on Monday evening. I just love the colors, and I love this new stitch. It’s called a cobble stitch. It is wonderfully tactile in it’s texture and you just are compelled to sit and run your hands over it. It’s sort of addicting like bubble wrap but not as annoying.

I came home from the Tuesday morning prayer shawl meeting with this laundry hamper full to the brim with all the left over bits of yarn. I am going to make a guess and say that when all is said and done there may be enough of the mish mash to make four shawls. I love watching them come together with all the varied colors and patterns that take shape.

No pictures on Wednesday, July 27, I did drive out to my sisters which is an hour plus away so we had a lot of drive time and no photo op’s

Thursday, July 28

I think the only thing still producing in my garden are the tomatoes, peppers and a few cucumbers. I had a HUGE harvest of jalapenos, banana peppers as well as a few green peppers. Rather than go to waste I made a batch of pepper jelly. I altered the recipe a bit and increased that amount of hot pepper ratio. I have not tried any yet so I am eager to give it a taste, I hope I don’t have it to hot!

Well after staring at my pineapple top for several weeks I finally decided to get it transplanted to a pot on Friday afternoon. You can click here to see it’s humble beginnings. It really has grown quite a bit since I began the rooting process.

I was the the church bright an early Saturday morning for my facilitator training class. It is a yearly review of all the details involved with facilitation plus an opportunity to meet the new folks coming through as well as an opportunity for fellowship. This year will be a bit of a departure for me as I was assigned the video series “That The World May Know” by Ray Vander Laan.  I have never done this series from start to finish. I have seen piece parts of the series in various Sunday school classes that we have taken. It should be an interesting process to have the experience in the proper order and from start to finish.

Well here is mish mash prayer shawl #1. I finished it on Friday evening.

Well that’s my week, not very eventful and even a bit down right boring.  Thank You JESUS! I need a bit of down time!

Y’all head over to Sara’s and link up for more P365 fun!

Blessings

What beautiful work you've achieved on your shawls! It's an artform - whether knitting or crocheting - that is all but lost. My mother did equally lovely work, though none of we four girls picked up her love of crochet hooks.

I'm also going to have to check our Ray Vander Laan. I keep seeing his name in the context of rich studies - - sort of like Del Tackett (I LOVED his "Truth Project" series!).

Blessings,
Kathleen

*gasp* the prayer shawls are gorgeous!!! I love the mismatched one! the colors came together so beautifully! sigh. I wish I could knit..,or crochet. heck, both.

I love the mismatched one too - great colors! We had one tomato that was acting like it might get ripe - & then a squirrel decided to try it out (he didn't like it). Sigh.

You know, I was laughing at the book bag saga, but I've been looking for "the perfect lunch bag" ever since mine died a few months ago. I think I finally found it yesterday. Maybe.

the first shawl is gorgeous...but I think I like the mish mash one the best!! I'm such a color person and I love the multitude of colors in there.

Loved this week & the pray shawls. Wish we lived closer so you could teach me how to make them. Thanks for sharing.

I wish I lived near you so you could teach me how to make those lovely prayer shawls...and the pepper jelly....YUMMO! Do you put it on cream cheese and eat with crackers? We do....and it is one of my families favorites.

Maybe you did what I did on our recent vacation ... I took several photos without putting the memory card in the camera. I went to download all those beautiful shots, and drat, nothing!

Jamie @ Six Bricks High said...

Wow! Those prayer shawls are beautiful! So impressed with your talent - it is a skill I know nothing of.

Thanks for coming by my blog. Glad we have found each other through Sara. She's the best, isn't she?
