Project 365 update

Yikes, I can't believe it's been a couple weeks since I posted...actually, I can believe it. I think I'm over my rut of winter blues and can finally start focusing on things again. Ugh, I hate that. It's so hard sometimes. I get overwhelmed more easily in the winter and with the passing of one of my patients at work, I have been especially susceptible to being sad and depressed. But, I'm moving on and hopefully doing better. Here are the photos I've taken since I last posted on here:

So what have you been up to for the last two weeks? And is anyone wondering if I'm ever going to finish my wedding recaps? Have you ever gotten to the point in a recap process where you're just sick of it and don't want to finish? Yeah, that's where I am. Sorry!

Project365 update

I know I planned on updating and collecting my photos for the week on a Sunday evening post, but this last weekend was insane. Seriously crazy with work and feeling blue when not at work because of the rain and flooding we had here. I will say that I have been faithfully taking pictures every day and I finished my rainbow challenge. I'm sitting here after spending the last hour outside weeding my veggie patch in preparation to planting onion and garlic tomorrow afternoon (gotta do it while it's sunny and before the rain sets back in at the end of the week!). Jeff is still cleaning up after the flooding over Saturday night (side note: we should have put the flood gates up because we got about half of the road and all of the leaves and green rubbish flooded into our yard..oops!) and he has finished the rose arch for me that I wanted. It's beautiful.

Project365: Days 2-8

I did my first full week of Project365. I'm pretty proud of the fact I was able to do that. Starting from today I am doing a rainbow challenge. I'll be taking a picture each day of the corresponding color in the rainbow (ROY G BIV). But for right now I've just got the pictures from this last week. They are basically a cross-section of what is around me nearly every day.
