Photo Project 2012 - Days 270 to 289

Day 270



The cats seem to love Zelda no matter how she plays with and moves them. Here they are on a stool in the kitchen one morning.

Day 271

I spend a crafting weekend with six women twice a year. No matter how many times we've done this, we always bring way too much food.

Day 272



An early morning view over the lake in Beachwalk, Michigan City, Ind.

Day 273



A church steeple sits majestically against the clear blue sky on Sunday, Sept. 30.

Day 274



Gretchen gave us this ball ring for the cats. Portia can sit and play with it for very long periods of time.

Day 275



Annalee is the only bells, aka xylophone, player in beginning band at her school. She's finally understanding why learning to play the piano is a good thing.

Day 276



Portia rests on Annalee early one morning.

Day 277



I don't know if it's that these monkey bars are lower to the ground and, thus, less scary, but Zelda has them mastered. Only these.

Day 278


Ron was behind the planning of a fundraising poker night at church on Oct. 5. Even though I didn't win, I had a lot of fun bluffing.

Day 279


We spent years boating in Racine, Wis. In our final year, they created Party on the Pavement, an end-of-season party in downtown. We returned this year to visit with our friends and 'party.'

Day 280



Jessica brought Milo to church for the annual Pet Blessing service. We brought the kittens, too, but somehow I didn't manage to get a picture of them.

Day 281





Portia, top, and Cinna. These portraits just don't do their beautiful faces justice. Makes me appreciate really awesome pet portraits!


Day 282


We found out on Columbus Day that we had a small, but still disgusting, lice infestation among two of us. I thought the headbands in the freezer was rather humorous the next day.

Day 283

If you think you've seen enough of the kittens by now, just wait. I get lazier as the year goes on!

Day 284



Ron and Zelda read a book together after dinner.

Day 285





I haven't figured out why the girls always tilt their heads when I try to take their pictures...


I was so excited to arrive at church for a ladies' CAbi party and see the digger stationed on the property ready to start construction.

Day 286






Our friends, the Kanes, had their second annual fall festival. Despite the rain and wind, the girls made the most of face painting and pony rides. They even managed to get Ron to carry them back to the car when the fun ended.

Day 288



Something about the choir lined up at the alter and our rector distributing communion looked so blessed and beautfiul.


At the end of the service, we processed outside for a ground-breaking ceremony to great cheers.

Day 289



With the ceremony completed the day before, construction began in earnest on Monday, Oct. 16.
