Project 365, Week 1

Project 365 button designed by

I couldn't resist. Project 365 was such a good way to document our year, I have to do it again. Thanks, Sara, for continuing to host!

Driving into Cordoba yesterday afternoon, we were astonished at the number of spectators lining the road, waving and taking our photo.... Oh wait, it's the Dakar race participants they want to see and there are two Dakar vehicles right behind us.

(not my photo; it's from this website)

Our daughter was fascinated by the many Oreo flavors and snapped this photo.

But forget grocery stores; she'd rather be at the mall. In this area she is more than a seasoned pro ...spotting bargains at 50 yards, zeroing in on the lowest price, able to leap other customers in a single bound -- she's Super Shopper! Her shopping stamina is super human too; she shops 'til I drop :-)  Have to say, leather goods are some of my favorite eye candy.

Fireworks on New Year's Eve! We drove up the hill beyond where our co-workers live. We discovered last year that this is a great spot to look out over the city. I especially like this shot of Tina with fireworks in the background, even if we did cut off half her face.

On our drive around the lake New Year's day we stopped a number of times; this was by the old dam. Wikipedia has a short article about El Dique San Roque.

And finally, I think it will be my tradition to always include a photo of our peaches in the first Project 365 post each year.

One small and one large limb have broken from the weight of the fruit this year. We'll have to either prop them up in the future, or thin them out. The tree is absolutely LOADED.

That's all for this week. Welcome Project 365 newcomers and a shout out to all those who are returning!

B.e.a.Utiful! Each and all!
Yummmmy peaches. Will you send some back with Tina?
Hey, seriously tho', could you send some seeds for zapallitos?
Tina is having amazing opportunities! like being in the middle of Dakar and waving like a princess. They were there for her, I'm sure, she is such a beauty!
BTW, I will ask my crafty friend Viola for ideas for a Christmas craft you can do easily and in quantities. She has ideas and mags galore!

I don’t think we have that many Oreos in the grocery store here in TinyTown, MN! I don’t think we even carry Oreos at all for that matter... Nice shot!

LEATHER GOODS! I love you!

Fireworks are hard to capture. Nice.

!!!!!!!!! so enjoy the shots of your beautiful outdoor surroundings this time of year when everything is so bleak here in NorthCountry. The peaches look incredibly delicious and dripping with juice! Yum. Please send to 55909. Thanks

My mom has the same problem with her peach tree. She and Dad usually prop the limbs up with ladders. She won't listen to me when I tell her she needs to prune her tree. She says she doesn't know how, even though I tell her imperfect pruning is better than no pruning. I think she just wants to get as many peaches as possible, and she can't stand the thought of cutting off limbs.

Peaches! You'd think I was one of Pavlov's dogs right about now, the way my mouth is producing saliva!

BTW - Happy New Year~!
