If my goal for March was to organize and execute a birth fair/expo and get MASSIVELY sick, then yes, I accomplished my March goals.

Goddamn the end of that month was hard.

I had a really great time working with a friend to put together the birth fair, but then I couldn’t enjoy the afterglow of our success because I immediately came down with the worst sinus/ear infection I’ve had in a long time. It was totally gross. If I say now that my goal was to produce the most snot ever produced by one person, does that mean I win? Because you guys, I totally did. I went through three boxes of kleenex in less than seven days. EPIC is the only word I have to describe my sickness.

Anyway!

I also took pictures during the month of March. Here they are.

These are raccoon pawprints in the cement of a sidewalk next to the St Mary’s parking lot on Pine Street. It had just rained, or snow had just melted, and the impressions caught the water in such a fun way.

Some delicious hummus prettily presented at The House Cafe. I love going there on my lunch hour (and it’s where we held the birth fair on the 27th). Everyone there is lovely, and beautiful things like this happen all the time.

I doubled up on the pictures for this day, which is something I hadn’t wanted to do when I started this project, but you guys, MY SOCKS! I finished them! And they’re so pretty! And they fit perfectly! I love them! SOCKS! I’m kind of chuffed/embarrassed because it took so long to finish them but they are so very awesome. I’m not sure I’ll ever love top-down socks, but these were not so bad once I actually kicked my own ass to finish them.

Speaking of OMG PROUD, I freaking love this picture. I took probably 30+ shots when I was trying to get this one, with the pink/red in focus and the white of the church steeple in the background, against all that blue sky. SO COOL. I may have to frame this one just so I can gaze on it forever. I love spring.

Now that it is Tax Day and April is half over, I will tell you that my goal for this month is to get back into the gym regularly (because the Evil Plague knocked me out of my routine for a really long time), choose 12 pictures from last year’s Project 365 and print them out and get them framed, and update this blog at least three more times. This month.

Tonight’s goal: leave work on time, pick up delicious takeout food, and make some gin and juice for my drinkydrink. You know why.

Dreaming Big

Now that I drive to work I get to see a lot more interesting things in the mornings and evenings. (I don’t count the sea of corn I drive through. I mean, I’m a country girl and I’m happy the crops around here are doing well, but it doesn’t speak to my sense of aesthetics.)

The other day I was particularly charmed by this guy:

At the stoplight he actually stood up, stretched, and picked something out of his sandal. Classic.

And a closeup of his shirt tells us that though he may be riding a scooter he dwarfs, he has bigger plans someday:

I’ve been told to post pictures of my new yarn organization. Well, I’ve been busy still working on that pesky literacy project. Plus we don’t have internet at home yet, so my online time is seriously abbreviated. Patience!!
