Project 365 - Week 2

 Week 2.

Wow, this was a crazy busy week for me and I am glad it's over!!!

Lot's of unexpected twists and turns.  It didn't help that I spent most of the week recovery from my drive to Siloam POURED the entire 7 hour trip.   And on the 3.5 hours back it not only poured, there was a dense fog.  It was probably one of the scariest drives I have ever had.  I was very sore the rest of the week from being so tense.

So I hope you all had a smoother, more relaxing week than I did!!

Here's mine:

One thing I love about this time of year is the Ruby Red Grapefruit I can find in the grocery store!
  I love them!!
I love to peel them like an orange and eat them that way.
 The Fine Arts Council at our school is hosting Tim Hawkins next week.  We have almost sold out 1400 tickets!!!  I made posters today to walk the carpool line at school for a last minute push to sell those last tickets!

 Jason is moving home for a semester.  Alyssa and I drove up today to help him move all his things home. Before we left, we stopped for coffee with him and Andi at Pour Jon's.
Have you ever seen one of these timers?  It times how long tea, french press coffee, etc need to steep.  very cool!!


We've been able to enjoy our fireplace a couple of times this week!  
**don't look at the mess**
  Jason cut his thumb this morning trying to slice some bread.  He ended up with 3 stitches.  But I did enjoy seeing him sit on the scooby doo table!!!

On my Friday breakfast date with my husband and had these.  These are the best grits you will ever taste!!!
Gouda grits.
My mouth waters just thinking about them!!
Finished this book today.  It's the 2nd book in the Hunger Games series.  Wow.  Very good and very intense!!!  Can't wait to get to the 3rd!

So how was your 2nd week of the year?!!  link up and share!!!

What an awful drive home. Glad your angels were with you.

Hope your week is a little calmer - is there such a thing?

blessings -


Hope week three is a bit calmer for you. Glad you made your drive home in one piece. Cheese grits looked yummy and I love Ruby Reds too. Have a wonderful week.

i'm a grits & grapefruit girl, too. ;) so glad your baby survived - looked painful. ouch! aaaand that you made it home safely!

Amy said...

ugh, I hate driving in hard rain, plus fog?!? so glad you're ok!
what a cool timer! I'd love one of those to put on a shelf somewhere.
Gouda grits sound delicious!!
Jason does look a little odd sitting on the scooby doo table, lol, too funny.

have a relaxing week!!!

That is a really interesting timer. Here at our house we love tea and specifically loose leaf tea so a tea timer would be perfect for us.
Gouda grits sound so yummy! I haven't had grits in a really long time. I may have to add them to our menu sometime soon.

Rain + Fog = Agony
I'd probably be sore from being tense too!

Yum on the grapefruit!
Poor Jason :( But the table sure is cute :)

Haven't read any of the Hunger Games books yet. Keep hearing about them though.

Have a great week!

Michelle said...

Ouch on the stitches. I thought that the grits were mashed potatoes...can you tell I'm born and raised on the west coast for not recognizing them?

I read the Hunger Games series and the last book is Eh, but still worth reading. Enjoy.

Tori said...

Your drive sounds awful!!
I LOVE grapefruit too, but I actually prefer the white even more. (the more sour, the better!)

What is Jason going to do at home?
Glad his finger was ok. Maybe this Christmas your Santa will need a Scooby Doo gown! ;)

Have a great week my friend!!

The Bug said...

Wow those grits look FABULOUS - yum! I should get one of those timers for Mike - he got a French Press coffee maker with some of his Christmas money.

Glad you made it home safe - whew, how scary!!!

That grapefruit ... yummers!

The big man on the scooby table - divine.

Love it all!!!

Robin Lambright said...

Driving in bad weather....NO FUN AT ALL! Glad you arrived safely!

Red Grapefruits is one of my all time fav's, I eat mine the same way too!

Love grits anyway I can get them!

I hope Jason's thumb is mending!

I read a preview of the Hunger Game on my kindle, very interesting. Now the DD and I both want to read the series!


Lisa said...

That IS hilarious with Jason sitting on the table. But I'm wondering....who is it for? Is Scooby Doo still playing? I know my kids wouldn't have a clue what it was.

FIre + football...very nice!

The Hunger Games sound too intense for me, I think.

Skoots1moM said...

that grapefruits looks luscious...i can't eat them with my meds:(

hope jason's thumb's better
my girl is on book 2 of that series...she's loving them

football/fire; yum!
great the shot with all the kiddos

I'm sorry about that drive. Not a fun way to start off the week.

I love grits, I love cheese and I love Gouda. And those Gouda grits sound amazing. I think I'm getting hungry!

I haven't read any of the Hunger Game books, but I've heard great things about them. Maybe I should pick one up!

Rebecca Jo said...

You may already know this... but the 3rd book is HORRIBLE!!! I hated it.. hated the way it ends... hated everything about it. And I LOVED the first how you liked this last book in the series.

TIM HAWKINS!!!! LOVE HIM!!!!!!!!!!! Hope you all have a great turnout!

Glad Jason is OK...yuck...gave me eebie jeebies just looking at his thumb!I have had friends read that series and they are so excited for the movie to come out in March...I haven't taken the time to read it yet, they are trying to talk me into it! Have a great week!
