Project 365, Week 6, February 1-7
So here we are, week 6. This project is getting harder and harder for me. I hope I can hang in there. Because I know that being faithful to this this project is really important, like when that little Dutch boy Hans Brinkman stuck his finger in the dyke and saved Holland. That's how important it is every Sunday to get my pictures on here.
Sunday night, Super Bowl night. My daughter had her friend over to watch the commercials. They ate ice cream out of the carton. Ahh, youth.
Monday: Our parking lots are clear now, but the snow is piled high in the lots. Just beyond this hill of snow is the little postal station where I mail your contest prizes. Our streets expand and then go back when it freezes and thaws, so we have great big old pot holes now that we have to maneuver around like land mines. I'll have to get a pic or two of those next week to show you. Because why wouldn't you want to see beautiful pot holes.
Tuesday: We taped "We Go Together" at church for the staff video to be shown at our volunteer appreciation banquet on February 20. More to come on this extravaganza in a week or two. Maybe even a video?
Wednesday: Here is the ninja stealth sprayer. He disguises himself in dark clothing and then sneaks up on gingerbread houses and sprays them with lacquer.
Thursday: This cracks me up. When we come in the back door, if we put down any piece of clothing for even 5 seconds, Zoe gets on it like it's a plot of land she has claimed in the great land race of the Oklahoma Territory. She might as well put up a flag with a giant "Z" on it.
Friday: Every day, when I leave home for work, the last thing I do is turn around, look at Zoe and say, "You be a good girl today. You go potty on your paper. On your paper. On your paaaay-purrr." I'm trying to stress that last word so that it will stick in her head as the last thing she heard. Then she cocks her head at me and sadly watches me leave. When I come home, it's a ticker tape parade. But the problem is, soon I have to leave again to pick up Kristin from school. So sometimes I can't bear to do the whole "You be good" business again, and I let her come with me. And so here she is, having the best day of her life, which is any time she gets to go along.
Saturday: Rock Band!
OK, go check out Sara's place to see more Projects!
