Project 365: Week 30

Project 365 button designed by http://richgift.blogspot.com

I've missed one or two weeks of P365 lately. I think it's just the combination of getting back from Alaska, immediately diving into becoming full-time at work and just trying to get back on track with everything. The full-time has been pretty okay. The paycheck was definitely nice - worked out to more than the SU and I thought it was going to be! Thanks, God! I also got most of my videos up and made them visible on a blog that links to this one so I feel semi-accomplished, methinks. Now if I can just get to the rest of that to-do list I've made myself...

Anyway, here is this week:


This technically is from Alaska versus this particular week but I just love this picture.  Look at the SU and our granddaughter, Rylie, and tell me there's no genetics going on there :).


Made cream scones as part of dinner.  They're very fast to put together and only take about twenty minutes to cook.  They also store and freeze well.


OK.  I have to explain this one.  I was in my office when some faculty from another department came by and wanted to look at some rooms in our building in preparation for some kind of seminar they were holding.  I went to help them out and I noticed that this particular professor seemed to have some, er, issues.  I ended up trying not to walk behind him because I was worried there was going to be a full moon in the middle of the afternoon!


Yay!  New furniture!  I got to get rid of the ugly blue metal desk (you know, the ones that were the height of office furniture fashion in the 1960's and get a nice, new desk and table...and pay someone else to put it together :)).


The SU is not enamored of the cats as of late.  Curious Grace peed all over his laptop bag just before we left for Alaska and Munchkin apparently yakked on the couch while I was at work and he was home*.  He keeps calling them "fuzzy terrorists" and "Al-Kitty" now.  I took the pic to remind him that they are still kinda cute.

*I kept getting text updates while he was cleaning the couch.  They consisted of things like "Man, this stuff is one heck of an adhesive when it dries!", "Oh God, there's...hair in it!" and my personal favorite:  "Who knew one cat could have so much...bulk?"


Our Dean went to Harvard for a conference and brought us all back little handmade chocolate mice.


This is me being a dork :).  I had just finished my workout this morning and remembered I needed a picture.  Since the rest of my consisted of (a) the grocery store and (b) staying out of the heat and humidity as much as possible, I figured I'd better grab a picture while I could - please excuse the fuzzy camera phone.  It's also a rare picture of me in glasses since I don't like them and will wear my contacts until they fall out of my eyes.

Even with the spine injury, I still love working out even though I mansweat.  Some people glow.  Some perspire.  I go way beyond that :).  The only bad part is not all my hair is long enough to fit into a ponytail so I get these pieces by my face that get all wet and I keep thinking there is something on me.  It looks something like this:

Me:  *swipes hand at wet thing lying against face*  ACK!  Must be a bug!  ACK!
Brain:  No, that's your hair, Einstein.  *sighs*  I can't take you anywhere, can I?




  1. I loved the Alaska picture with your granddaughter. It was precious. I am with your husband....the couch thing would have done me in. Love the new office look. Your week sounds like it was definitely full.

  2. Rylie is just the cutest thing! I'm jealous of the new office furniture. I don't know why - mine is fine. But yours is NEW. Heh.

    The SU is just the funniest guy - you guys really amuse me. Al-kitty indeed :)

    Good for you for working out! I hope I'll start doing SOMETHING after my surgery.

    P.S. VERY scary about the potential fire! That was one of our biggest fears living in an apartment...

  3. What a doll Rylie is. She does look like her grandpa, that's for sure.


  4. nice desk! I love that your SU texted you vomit duty updates, lol. just screaming for a little sympathy. :-)

  5. Don't you know that droopy drawers are the height of fashion for males these days. Gag me now, because I honestly don't understand it.

    Your scones looks nummy, wish't I coulda had a sample! :)

  6. Ha, my hubs got in a fight with the cat too once after cleaning the carpet when the cat decided he needed to mark his territory again.
    R & Gramps, so cute!
