PROJECT 365 / WK 3


Reiterating WHAT SARA SAID to those in Project 365...



"This is a wonderful community and having done this for one year already, I know encouragement helps in staying with it!"


Believing COMMENTS are an important part of this world-sharing adventure, I'd LOVE to hear from you.

Sara went further to pose a challenge to us..."give one piece of advice to those 'just starting' this adventure".

My advice: DON'T over-pressure yourself to take a shot EVERY day...at least one or two a week is sometimes my norm, but it still helps me make some effort toward noting how the week has been, good or bad.

Some HIGHLIGHTS from this week...CLICK EACH PIC TO SEE A LARGER VIEW:

Sunday, 1/10: Our youth group/church said 'see ya later' to one of their Asst. Youth Director mentors...agape gifts for future missions, a completed prayer shawl, a book of youth letters and a send-off prayer while 'laying on hands' ... WE LOVE HER SO MUCH and will work hard to stay in touch as she works in another church many states away from here...sniff, sniff!!2010-01-10


Monday, 1/11 (no pics today)

Tuesday, 1/12:

prepared my outline for our Disciple III class this week...

it does not pay to EVER procrastinate getting this done.


Wednesday, 1/13 & Thursday, 1/14 (no pics)

Friday, 1/15:

While walking through the foyer on my way up with the laundry basket, I noticed a visitor outside my front door.

Can you see him through the sidelite?

He was catching some rays while sheltered from the wind by the bushes on either side of the porch. His fur was all puffed up as he crouched down on all fours.

Saturday, 1/16:

Had a chance to get some bright green kale at the grocery for $1.29/lb

I pounced on that and cooked them down today with some bacon and salt water...yummo!

...and look, on another trip up the stairs with today's load of clothes...

we had ANOTHER little visitor.

He was REALLY little, can you see him behind the iron railing?

The lower pics get you close enough to see him.

The chipmunks love to dig in my cement planters where I currently have purple cabbage plants. They bury nuts there, along with the squirrels.

Hope you have a wonderful WEEK 4 of 2010 :)

Come again...anytime!

It sure helps to keep it all in focus doesn't it? You've covered a lot of ground, but probably none more than that of the heart ...

Blessings,

Great shots - and so true about the no pressure thing - if you miss a day, ah well! Great sendoff, so touching to see a church love on eachother that way.

Amy said...

Oh my gosh I love the chipmunk picture. If I feel so good when I don't procrastinate why do I do it?? One of the great questions of the world.

Great pictures and thanks for sharing

Love the cat on the porch and the chipmonk! So cute.

Lori at The Davidson Den said...

Adore the chipmunk. We haven't seen many this year. :(
Also, if you like kale that way, you should try this:
Wash and then shred the kale. Place parchment paper on a cookie sheet and then spread the kale out in a thin layer. Sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese and bake in a 400 degree oven for around 20 minutes. Found the recipe on Allrecipes.com called "Kale Krisps," I think. My kids love it this way!!

Kim said...

The photo of the kale has my mouth watering :-) I'm sharing photos from the past week on my blog today; it's just taking a sweet forever to upload the photos.

Does the cat occasionally chase the chipmunks?

It's always hard to say goodbye to folks we love, but it's always exciting to see how (and where) God directs them.

Have a wonderful week Jubisista!

Robin @ Be Still and Know said...

I made a big ol' pot of kale Saturday night also. It was super yummy!!!!

Together We Save said...

Great photos, love the scrapbooking effect.

Darla said...

mmmm...kale with bacon and salt? yummo! i'm trying that for sure.

Tori said...

Keep up the great work with your Discipleship class!! Tell me more about the kale dish. I've only used kale as a garnish in soups or with salad, never as a dish on it's own.
Great week!
