Project 365 | Week 8

This week has been hectic, and filled with lots of firsts.  I’ve given up something I seriously crave for Lent (eating out, in all it’s forms even for the one dollar McDonald’s coffee).  I’ve ridden the top deck of a double decker bus.  I also took photos of my cat in the bathtub because he felt like modeling and I felt like fake peeing.  Week 8:

Day 49 | Jasper Dean

This is my cat in all his handsome glory, and all his ridiculous personality.  What else is new.  Project 365 = cat lady.

Day 50 | Flame

This is a house very close to the teen center that had a horrible fire.  I took it while driving so it’s a bit blurry, but it reminded me to really be thankful and appreciative.  And isn’t that what Lent is all about anyway?

Day 51 | Skyping the Best Friend

My best friend moved to NZ last year and so the way that we talk about having babies, naming babies, and our lady mechanics is via the lovely tool of skype.  I miss her.  She, Sars, does an amazing 365 blog here.

Day 52 | Lent

I only occasionally discuss my spiritual journey here.

“Lent is not the time to talk to God, it’s the time to create space where God can talk to you.” – Father Bill

Day 53 | Teen Center Cooking Class

These are just a few of my teens making personal cookies.  I love how all of their personalities shine through in this photo.

Day 54 | Amelie French Bakery in Charlotte

Holly introduced me to this lovely French Bakery for my first encounter with the Charlotte art scene.  If I was a food critic, I’d be salivating over these pictures.  If you live around the Charlotte area check out North Davidson and this cozy patisserie.  Visit Amelie’s site here.

Day 55 | Fern Trail Hike, Crowder's Mountain

Abs, Devin and I spent the day hiking at Crowder’s Mountain near Charlotte.  This was by the lake filled with fingerlings.

Day 55.5 | Love Birds

And that’s my happy weekend.  I’ll blog about some books and things tomorrow on the bus ride, or at the beginning of the week.

    It looks like you are having a great time in Charlotte. I would love to check out that patisserie. I loved the picture of your teens enjoying their baking. I look forward to their next cooking project. Homemade pizza?

    Your cat is a natural at modelling… should really sign him up with an agency before he gets too big for his paws :) so cute. And giving up eating out for lent..??….ouch! I don’t think I could handle it, I’m such a foodie…best of luck. I did manage without chocolate for 40 days though…I even didn’t order coffee with chocolate sprinkles on top…you can do it!

      Haha I wish he would sit and look cute like that all the time, but it seems I have to pretend to pee to get those good tub shots. And wow chocolate sprinkles on coffee – sounds DELICIOUS. I’ll have to do that tomorrow. Hopefully I make it through this Lent period without eating out – EEEE!!
