Project 365 - Week 11

Week 11.

This week has literally flown by!!  Seriously, it was Monday and I blinked and then it was Friday.  whew!

Who told me that once the kids left the nest that things would slow down.....they lied.  It just seems to get busier and busier.....or maybe I am just having a harder time keeping up!  Either way, I feel like I need to get off the train!!

Here's my week:

We had a leak in our roof and are finally getting the damage fixed.  This is what I came home to.


Made Pioneer Woman's Asian beef and noodle soup tonight
Went to see my BF Wendi.....she took a fall in her garage!
Actually this picture doesn't do it justice...poor thing!!!

We were invited to dinner at our Worship pastor's house tonight.
They served PW's Thai noodles.
I cracked up when I looked over and saw their son cutting the noodles hanging out of his mouth with the knife!!!


Our weather has been glorious lately!!!!

 Alyssa's home!!!!

 Flat Stanley decided to come with me and Alyssa to Arizona.  Here he is enjoying my favorite Eegee!  We stopped on the way home from the airport.  This is the flavor of the month...Lime.  SO GOOD!!!!

So, how was your week?  Is it spring time where you are?

SOOO jealous of the weather you are having!
My week was fabulous! Definitely NOT spring time here in South Dakota, but we are praying it shows up soon! :)

Jill from Killeny Glen said...

OH MY! Poor, poor Wendi!!! That was SOME fall!

Love all the other photos...well...not the yukky wall BUT the wall in repair process!

JEALOUS of those wonderful blossoms!

Ladynred said...

Great photos! The beef noodle soup looks good and the flowers are beautiful.


Loved the pictures this week. PW's soup looked yummy. Is that from her cookbook or her blog? Loved Flat Stanley. The flowers, especially the tulip tree, were gorgeous. Have a great week.+

Kim said...

How wonderful that you get to spend a week with your daughter!!!
After the busy weeks you've been having, I hope this one with Alyssa is relaxing and FUN, FUN, FUN!

Lori: Teacher Turned Mommy said...

first of all... OUCH! looks like spring is popping up there. we had hit spring here and then the cold came back in, so it's the rest of the world's spring this week, not Florida spring (o:

RaD said...

Ouch! You friend looks like she was at the losing end of a fist fight. I hope she heals quickly!

I really hope that little boy had a butter knife.

Love the action in the picture of your two kids. You can feel the excitement.

Lisa said...

Oh, I love the picture of Jared and Alyssa!!

And your beautiful flowers!! Please post lots of those to hold me over til we have our own. :) The soup you made looks good...I'll have to try it this week.

Robin @ Be Still and Know said...

We have some early spring color her also, it is such a nice change from dreary winter.

That soup look amazing, I might have to look up the recipe on her blog.

My son had curls like that when he was a little boy, platinum blonde ringlets all over his head. The hair is a bit darker now but he still has the curls!

Never heard of an Eegee! Looks like sherbet????

Great week!

And if anyone tell you life slows down after retirement, they're kidding.
Spring blossoms, just went to the window to see if our daffodils are coming up--YES, about 3" poking up out of the ground. Photos in the next few weeks!
So sorry about your friend. I must say I was glad to read it was a fall and not a beating.

skoots1mom said...

it's always fun getting to see into your fun...
enjoy your kids being home

He & Me + 3 said...

Beautiful weather you are having. How long are you keeping Flat Stanley. We only got ours for a few days.
Sorry about the fun.

LuAnn said...

So glad Alysssa is home. Hope you are having fun !!!!

Love the flower pics. I would take some more of those please. I know my spring has to be around the corner.

Rebecca Jo said...

HOLY COW - that's a fall! Look at those bruises... OUCH!!!!!

That soup looks AMAZING!!!!

I hate home repairs.

Mimi said...

Spring is supposed to be coming, but we got a dusting of snow last night :(

No pics this week, but I'll be back on board next week!

Hugs & love,

Jamie @ Six Bricks High said...

Beautiful weather and having your daughter home...sounds like a perfect week! Except for that leak situation of course.

The DG Family said...

Your poor friend Wendi, I hope she is feeling better. Loving the beautiful weather! And that soup looks yummy!

McCrakensx4 said...

I know what you mean about the week flying by...can't seem to catch my breath! That soup looks so very delish! And OUCH for your BF...hope she heals quickly. We are on spring break this week and in Cali so I will do a catch up week with 2 weeks next Sunday...Hope you have a great week!

Angie said...

You have a Flat Stella! I thought I'd missed a story on your blog and when I googled Flat Stanley I got to read about the Literacy program. What fun!

A few years ago Mark got into geo-caching and took a VW bug with us to Disneyworld to show where the bug had been. Fun little project.

Hope Wendi feels better soon!

The noodle pic was cute. Alyssa's homecoming (if you scroll fast enough) looks impressionistic. :)

Don't even get me going on your blossoms. None here yet...waiting.

The Bug said...

Looks like a great week. I'm so glad you got to spend some time with Alyssa :)
