365 Photo-A-Day Challenge

I’ve been toying around with the idea of a Photo-A-Day series, done for a whole year, and since I just got an amazing camera upgrade from Garrett, I decided to give it a try. So from March 1, 2015 to February 28, 2016 I’ll take (at least) one photo every day. And since I’ve got this blog, I figured that every week, I’d post the pictures and give you an idea of what’s going on in our lives. So here goes:

I finally got the nerve to play with my new sewing machine and finished the quilt for a friends’ baby, due in April. This is just a small chunk of it, as I don’t want them to see the whole thing yet 🙂

Monday I woke up with the news that I was an Auntie again! My wonderful God-Sister and her husband had their beautiful baby girl, Olivia Francis Louise, at about 1:30 in the morning (central time). As I felt awful that I hadn’t even started her quilt yet, on Monday I got the top put together. Both this quilt and the baby boy quilt still need to be quilted, but that’s the goal for this week.

Since the snow started to melt and we had to prepare for rain, the holes in the basement wall started to leak again. It wasn’t too horrible, but enough that it was an issue. Plus we were in a flood advisory from Tuesday night to Thursday night and we had no idea how bad the leaks were going to get. This was us being hopeful that the original repairs Garrett did 2 weeks ago were going to be enough (it wasn’t).

On Wednesday, as it rained, our basement turned into a wading pool. We weren’t able to keep up with the water coming in, as soon as I vacuumed it up, it was back so I couldn’t do anything about the standing water, just suck up the new water coming in. And dumping the shop vac about every 10 minutes. As the water was starting to get into the carpets, most specifically, the carpet under Garrett’s desk (where lots of electronics were housed) we decided to move upstairs since Donna & Bill are in Florida for a while. So we moved all the important stuff upstairs and this is where we’ll be for a while. Since the rain Wednesday turned to snow Thursday, it did stop, but now that it was almost 60 today, and should be in these temps all week, we’re waiting till we can get the basement dried out to rip up the ruined carpets, paint the concrete floor and then move back down.

Since we had moved upstairs, and still needed to give Icarus flight time, he got to explore the new area and see more of the upstairs than he ever had. He decided on a new “spot” on the mantle, in front of the mirror, and since he was looking just so handsome, I got my camera out and took a few great shots.

On Friday, we just tried to catch up with everything. We finally got our internet back and Garrett and I had a nice sushi dinner. And since I realized it was the end of the day, with no picture taken, I got another few shots of Icarus, despite his hating me for it 🙂

Today was an absolutely beautiful day! According to our car, it got to 58 degrees, though it felt much warmer. As Garrett was hanging out with the guys, I got a me/girl day and as part of that, I decided to take my camera out to McHargue’s Mill, part of the Levi Jackson State Park. Its a beautiful Mill and something I’ve always wanted to photograph. Can’t wait till spring when all the plants come into bloom!

That’s week one of my 365 Photo-a-Day challenge. Stay tuned for more pictures next week!
