Playing catch-up...

I think I'm taking a chance with this post as Blogger has been a royal pain for me today, ugh. Here goes anyway! *crossing my fingers*

Hey, did you see my new header? I made it last night and I think I like it, although I really miss my vacation photos. I might have to sneak them in somewhere else here, lol.

I'm finally getting the majority of my Project 365 photos posted after a few weeks of life being a bit different than usual, but it's all good (as my friend, Patti says). There were a few days that I didn't take photos and a few that I prefer to keep private. I feel like I'm keeping up for the most part and I'm still enjoying it so I think that's the most important thing. :)

Off we go! *Excuse the absence of day titles this time around but no worries as I have them in order in my pictures folder on my laptop. ;)

Around here, farming equipment on the roadways is a common site - even in April snow!


Beijing (our pug) had a fit and got in the trash! Bad dog! (bad me for leaving a few Easter candy wrappers in there, lol)


My mom doing her therapy exercises after shoulder surgery...


I took my camera to the cemetary when I saw the trees beginning to bloom.


The moon while sitting our front steps...


Happy birthday, Honey!


I noticed the Hawaiian Shaved Ice Shack took off their covering. It must be time for snow cones!


Went to the library to pick up a book I ordered from another library. Isn't our library gorgeous?


Picking up printer ink at Staples...


The tree in our backyard with all it's beautiful buds! Since this photo, we now have full leaves!


A trip through the Dairy Queen...


I made dinner for my parents and took it to them after my mom's surgery...


Giving Beijing a bath - not her favorite activity, lol...


I got in the car and it was a rainy day but I loved the green tree buds and the lone blossom that my wipers had cleared from my windshield...


This is what I call a swap! WOAH! I joined a share/swap (basically each participant stuffs the box full of what they haven't used in their scrappy stash, send it to the next person, they take what they want from the box and add what they're done with. It continues until it goes full circle) and we're already up to 4 (yes, FOUR!) HUGE, HEAVY, STUFFED boxes!


One of the entrances into the town I live. Love how beautiful the trees look!


Ahh, it's time to dangle that arm and soak up some sun!


*Whew* I'm glad to get that caught up. I was starting to feel really behind.

Enjoy your Friday!
