Basement Bricks (013/365)

TIME: 4:33 PM
PLACE: Rental house

HH and I were at the “Fixer-Upper” today trying to get more things done.

It always seems that we do a lot when we are there, yet we never seem to get any closer to having it completed. *Sigh*

DQ’s boyfriend and his father are helping by removing the old plaster from the brick walls in the basement, filling in the failed mortar and re-coating the wall.

It’s a HUGE help and necessary for the place to pass inspection by the city.  I am VERY grateful for them taking on the task.

Chalk Swatches (012/365)

TIME: 8:50 PM
PLACE: Living room
SUBJECT: Art chalk and sketchbook
StellaDella is experimenting with pastels tonight.
Before she begins drawing and sketching, she makes a swatch of each pastel color in her sketchbook.
That way she knows how the colors will look when she uses them  in her artwork.
The color swatches look like art too.

Pillow Carnage (011/365)

TIME: 6:58 pm
PLACE: Living room
SUBJECT: Mulder’s kennel

I came home from work to this.

I guess Mulder didn’t like the way his pillow was treating him today.

I’m grateful it wasn’t filled with feathers.

Night Glow (010/365)

TIME: 10:13 pm
PLACE: Backyard
SUBJECT: Maple leaf

We pay the power company for an additional street light in the alley behind our house, mainly for safety reasons.

There is a side benefit of having the light; it makes the leaves on our “wonky” maple tree glow at night in the fall.

It’s something nice to view while I wait for the dogs to finish up outside before going to bed.

Lots and lots of turkeys.

Mascot (008/365)

TIME: 7:49 PM
PLACE: Junior High
SUBJECT: The Raider Bird at halftime

Guess whose daughter tried out for and was chosen to be one of the Raider Bird mascots?

I dream that someday, she will be promoted to the “big leagues” in Capital City and fill on for the Capital City Goofball.

I love my StellaDella.

Mason’s Mark & Always Keep One Eye Open (007/365)

TIME: 12:08 pm
PLACE: Masonic Temple
SUBJECT: Mason logo on dinner plate

Ate lunch today at the Mason’s Lodge Wurstmart.

This is a fancy Wurstmart. – no paper or Styrofoam plates here (unless you have carryout). 

You dine on china plates with their logo.


TIME: 7:11 PM
SUBJECT: Mulder and Jack

Mulder is not too sure about the sleeping cat behind him on the couch.

Best to keep one eye open just in case.
