Project 365 | Week 10 (Wow, Week 10)

My Mom, Brother and I.

This Project 365 is special because it’s my mother’s birthday today: March 10th.  I can’t say enough about what a wonder my mother is so I’ll say two things that really highlight it.  One: She’s taught me the most important thing that someone can be is kind.  Two:  I have this blog because my mother has given me the power, and the confidence to be who I want to be, no matter what.  Happy Birthday to the woman atop the pedestal, my mommy.

Onto the photos:

Day 63 | I love you bean.

I thought he would never grow, just another grocery store novelty like a broken chia pet.   This is my Valentine’s “I love you bean.”  It’s growing so strong that we had to move it to a bigger pot.  I won’t ever have to throw a tantrum like Kate over our love fern.  Our love lima is all flourish.

Day 64 | Another lazy day with Jas

You’ve probably seen enough of these.  If I don’t officially have the title of cat lady, then I’ll just have to put a beret or a cowboy hat on him…maybe a silver toy gun in a sling.

Day 65 | Unknown Suess Plant

All I’ve been thinking about lately is how well NCSU is doing in the ACC tournament and how much I want to see the Lorax.  It was one of my favorite books when I was little (thus why I take water bottles from people when they’re going to trash them rather than recycle them).  I thought this little budded and speckled flower was musing the Suess.

Day 66 | Wake-up Call

This is what I look like when I wake up; smeared eyeliner, wispy hair, cracked lips.  I could star in a lifetime movie as the “troubled” character.

Day 67 | Another Run, Another Cardinal

I can never get a clear cardinal picture.  They always suspiciously hide amongst the branches just in the perfect spot to avoid my zoom.  However, I got the petticoat of one on a run this week.  (By this time you have to realize I run with my Nikon).  These flowery trees only stay bloomed for about a week in North Carolina so I had to stand beneath them and let the petals dwindle in my hair while I could.  Perfect for picnicking and afternoon naps.

Day 68 | Thank you, WordPress

WordPress is mapping us out and I love it.  If I didn’t learn enough geography in seventh grade (believe me I didn’t), I will surely learn more by searching every country in google.  Yesterday, I learned a heck of a lot about Grenada and in turn how many celebrities vacation there a year.

Day 69 | How to make a car seat roof.

Step 1: Learn how to press the umbrella button.

Step 2: Smile for Grandma

Step 3: Hide and make Aunt Cassie peek below umbrella to get your actual smiling face.

Step 4: Lick the umbrella pole filled with finger germs and the residue of lost raindrops.

Step 5: Enjoy.

I hope you all spend the day outside picnicking, or making car seat umbrellas.  If not a car seat umbrella, why not a sheet tent?

    Thank you for the wonderful comments and the happy birthday wishes. I like all the pictures, especially the grandson, but I really feel something for the lone cardinal in the tree full of blossoms. Beautiful!

    I love your little seedling! And, I agree – the WordPress map makes me feel all important sometimes. I’m diggin’ the world map!

    Happy Birthday Cassie’s Mom. Couldn’t agree more with the advice, ‘Loving Kindness’ is the best guidance and allowing you to be who you want to be saves everyone a lot of heartache 🙂

    And thank you for my letter, just arrived home from 2 weeks holiday last night to the most beautiful card which has really sparked my imagination, but I’ll share all that in the return letter.

    Sorry, I have to say I disagree, even first thing in the morning, you don’t look troubled, startled perhaps, but all that loving kindness shines through, you’ll have to practice the troubled look, if you want to be convincing 🙂

    Gotta love WordPress, the geographic map, I have readers in Chile, who’d have thought? Another time-wasting, but fascinating obsession.

    Bon dimanche mon amie, je commence ecrirer une lettre aujourd’hui, et oui, je parle français, c’est absolument necessaire dans le sud de la France.

    Mes amitiés, Claire

    You are like the prettiest person on the entire planet. And I LOVE the love bean. I totally want one! Even though my cats would love to eat it.

    • Cassie says:

      Haha, aw thank you darling. I think they sell them at Harris Teeter – thank goodness my cat hasn’t noticed yet, he just eats my cats jungle cats.

  6. Happy birthday, Cassie’s mom.

    Love all your photos.
