Project 365 ~ Week 36

Well I hit five out of seven his week, not to bad as P365 averages go.

Monday, September 3

My newest thing these days is remembering to take these. I have tried several methods to facilitate trying to remember to take them every day to no avail. I have now decide that I am easing into senior citizenship with my handy dandy pill organizer. So far so good. I managed to take six out of the seven day this week! I need the vitamins, well just cause we all need vitamins and the glucosamine I am in hope will help with my aching knees. I am very tired of being in pain all the time. The problem with the glucosamine is that it is cumulative. You have to take it for several weeks before you begin to feel the result. So far I have not noticed any difference but then it has only been a few weeks so the jury is still out.

With Monday being a holiday we had a small dinner party. Skoot1mom and her husband and another friend along with one of my husbands work friends came over and we had a wonderful time. The Menu: Hamburgers, Hotdogs, Sweet & Spicy Bacon Wrapped Chicken, Baked Beans, Potato Salad and Deviled Eggs. Skoots fixed some of that wonderful Pretzel Salad for desert and I tried that recipe that has been floating around Pintrest, the cherry fluffy salad. I am not sure why they call it a salad. I think it is really more like a desert. However my assessment is that it is an ok desert, not spectacular. I think it has to much fluff and and enough fruit. I may try tweaking the recipe a bit. I like the lightness of this desert, its wonderfully light and fluffy and perfect for a warm summer evening when you don't want something heavy but you want something sweet. I still think the recipe needs a bit of work but I was not completely dissatisfied!

Remember my post from several weeks ago (week 32), right after I started working with the clay. This very small bowl got a bit damaged. Well my friend Ann was able to save it. She made a few alterations and turn it into a rice bowl. She has been working on some sushi trays and condiment bowls and this will make a nice addition to one of her sushi sets.

Here is another one of my completed pieces. Sometimes it can be a bit of a let down. This did not turn out exactly as I had hoped.

More wet and drying clay on Wednesday, September 5…

Thursday, September 6

There have been some changes in the MIL’s life. The biggest is that she has moved in with one of my husbands sisters. She is selling her house and we now have her old bedroom set and dining room table and chairs in our garage. If all goes well we are going to move the bedroom furniture into the Girlchild’s room. Regretfully it will not work in our room as our bed is a king-size and the frame for her old stuff a queen size. Not to mention that the hubs was not particularly fond of the furniture to begin with so it's off to the girls room.

The hubs had the week off. He spent the part of the week helping a friend and helping his mom move and doing a few other things around the house that needed doing. He did reserve one day for just us! I packed up the cooler and we put the top down on his new toy (a red corvette) and went for a drive up into the mountains. It was an absolutely gorgeous day.

We drove up to Vogel State Park. It was a pleasant day and we enjoyed the sunshine, the blue sky and the fact that we really didn’t have a plan!

It was GOOD y’all!

It was even a trip down memory lane. I had to do a bit of digging when I got home but I finally found what I was looking for.

This was from October 1986, our very first camping trip together….at Vogel State Park!

It was a Blast From The Past!

Saturday, September 8

Some days you are in the zone and other you just aren't. Well Saturday was defiantly not my day for working with the clay. It’s a good thing I am well seasoned in letting things go or I would have been very upset about the short life of this small tray. I am learning what to do and what NOT to do…like pick up an unfired piece by the edge….I just was not thinking. Live and learn. Now I have to make a new try to go with my cup. Bummer.

Muffinhead spent the night!

Grandpa saw a commercial for a buy one get one for .99 DQ Blizzard so there was only one thing to do, an after dinner Dairy Queen run!

Well that was my week! The weather is about to start getting very nice around these parts, and as I am finished up this post I am sitting at the computer desk enjoying the afternoon breeze through an open window. I came home from church to find the hubs had opened up the house. Don't ya just love a cool breeze though an open window on a lazy Sunday afternoon!

For more P365 y’all head over to Sara’s and link up:)

Blessings
