Two


This week's Macro Monday theme was Two and it couldn't be any type of flower or insect. I'm finding sewing supplies to be great content for macro pictures. These two spools are in an old sewing box I received many years ago. The old spools have so much more character than the new ones.



This is the other photo I considered for the theme.

Macro Mondays


Well, I certainly am not keeping up with a photo a day! But I am keeping up with the Macro Monday challenge this year. It has recently changed its rules from two photos a week to one. I'm good with that change! Instead of trying to catch up on a photo a day I am just going to post my missing
Macro Monday shots in this post.

Gertie-2003-2016

Last Wednesday Gertie lost her battle to cancer. Eight months ago we were told to take her home and make her as comfortable as possible. We didn't expect her to last as long as she did. She was a special girl and she is deeply missed. This is a little tribute I put together.

February 1-9



February 2-We've been working on this since the final days of December.

February 3-Gertie's final walk around the yard. Such a sad day.

February 9th-showing Kira my new leaky fruit infused water bottle, she inspired me to buy one. I had not planned on using this as my shot of the day but it's all I have!
Ok, all caught up! Now let's see if I can get back on track with this project.

Oops! I'm a little behind!

January 22


About once a week a student stops by to share a birthday treat, hoping for a trinket as a trade. I always take one, hoping it will get the student back to class a little quicker. Usually I'll pass the treat onto someone else at the end of the day, the exception being halfmoons, they are too hard to resist!

January 21



Lazy shot, holding the books on my lap while taking the picture with my phone. It's what happens when it's late and I still want to get a picture. :)

Anyway...Pernille Ripp writes my new favorite blog. It's my first place to turn when I'm looking for a book recommendation. I've used it for finding books for signposts and this is what I have so far for theme, with more on the way. So far my favorite book in this pile is Chopsticks. It make me laugh out loud and I can't wait to share it with my fourth and fifth graders.
