Day 60 | Saturday

Annetta | I am no good at baking, but I managed to make amazing cinnamon rolls from scratch! A perfect Saturday with yummy food and crochet.

Stephanie | Some heavy machinery was out to clear the brush and irrigation ditch. It was impressive to see it pulverize some trees in a matter of minutes. Wood chips flying everywhere. **Also, this is our 500th blog post!!**

Day 59 | Friday

Stephanie | Spent the whole day in bed, barely able to keep my eyes open. After going non-stop for so long, by body took a day off.

Annetta | I kept the kid at home today to go to an eye doctor. Apparently, they don't take kids and we need to find someone who does.

Day 57 | Wednesday

Stephanie | Early morning coffee + park date with friends.

Annetta | After speaking with a student about making pizza dough from scratch I decided to give it a shot. My first attempt ended with my new glass bowl in a million pieces. The second attempt I threw in the washer/dryer to speed up the proving process.

Day 56 | Tuesday

Annetta | After work, I forced myself outside for a little walk. It was nice to see signs of spring popping up all around.

Stephanie | Today I am thankful for a 2 hour phone call with Annetta. Talking with her always fills my heart.

Day 54 | Sunday

Annetta | My husband's friend invited us to a waterpark in Czechia. It was much needed for our family even though I couldn't join in on the swimming fun.

Stephanie | The almond orchard around here are in full bloom and I just love it. The trees are so full and fluffy with flowers.

Day 53 | Saturday

Stephanie | Spent the whole day outside planting and prepping the garden. I am now tired and sore!

Annetta | The only few pictures I took today were of knitting and food. I'll leave you with my knitting.

Day 52 | Friday

Annetta | Today's goal was to finish our family photobook for 2019. I sat at my desk till 1:30pm, but it is finished and ready for printing. 

Stephanie | When its 8 o'clock at night and you still haven't taken your picture, you have a mini photo-shot in the floral department of Home Depot.

Day 51 | Thursday

Stephanie | I feel so behind on everything this week. With all the extra errands we've made this week, and the kids being home trying to catch up on their work, everything is so off with me right now.

Annetta | Today has been a bittersweet day. I've done my grieving but now it's time to heal and to move on. I'm always counting my blessing despite what was lost.

Day 50 | Wednesday

Annetta | We decided to spend hump day at home today. I'm finding out that my body isn't dealing well and I might have some complications. A day at home to rest was a good choice. 

Stephanie | My oldest is going on a week long camping trip with school in the mountains soon. I'm working on crocheting a hat to keep her warm.

Day 49 | Tuesday

Stephanie | Kids are home this whole week, running errands and various appointments while they are out of school. I'm off my routine.

Annetta | Day two was spent at the zoo. Tin was trying to take a picture by the birds, but one of them kept poking him in the back.

Day 48 | Monday

Annetta | Spring break day one was spent at the library and lunch enjoying some crapes.

Stephanie | Family day off spent at the zoo.

Day 47 | Sunday

Stephanie | I'll be totally honest, I didn't take a new picture today. We worked in the garden after church and our focus was work, not pictures. BUT, I took many pictures I actually liked on Valentine's Day that I wanted to share.

Annetta | The snowdrops started to come out! The first signs of spring are finally appearing.

Day 46 | Saturday

Annetta | We drove out to Vienna, Austria after lunch for some much-needed family time and some ice skating.

Stephanie | Was busy all day and forgot to take my photo until the sun was setting. Had to get creative in very low light. Pushed me a bit, but I like it.

Day 45 | Friday

Stephanie | Went for a family walk downtown after school today, and then dressed up as fancy as we could and had a candlelit dinner at home together. Good day. Happy Valentines Day.

Annetta | We enjoyed a fancy restaurant as a family for Valentine's Day. I am thankful for these two men in my life!

Day 44 | Thursday

Annetta | I wasn't going to repeat yesterday so I got outside. I walked to several grocery stores and picked up some flowers along the way.

Stephanie | My daffodil bulbs are already blooming!!

Wednesday, February 12, 2020

Day 43 | Wednesday

Stephanie | Started the day playing a dragon game, ended the day by putting together Valentine's gift bags for school.

Annetta | Today my body and emotions gave up on me, I stood on the edge of a panic attack. Through tears and prayer, I got through it. The photos may be bright and cheery, but life itself isn't always so.

Tuesday, February 11, 2020

Day 42 | Tuesday

Annetta | Today I let myself be sad and teary-eyed while working through finishing sweaters and work. It's important to feel all the feels but to also move on with life.

Stephanie | In a funk today and all I wanted to do was nap in the sun like little Aloni. But instead I had to do chores and adult, boo!

Day 41 | Monday

Stephanie | Tried to be productive today. Spent way too much time doing one thing...and now the day is almost over.

Annetta | I am giving myself time and today that meant canceling my work hours because smiling wasn't something I was able to do.

Sunday, February 9, 2020

Day 40 | Sunday

Annetta | I spent my day knitting again. It helps me process my emotions. I've also finished the cardigan that I started just four days ago and started another one like it, but with a different yarn.

Stephanie | This weekend was just too much for me. Annoying and challenging.

Day 39 | Saturday

Stephanie | Busy Saturday for us. This girl was super annoying this morning with errands we had to do, but then took a long nap. Must have been sleepy.

Annetta | Today I kept busy. My husband and I rearranged our bedroom and cleaned out the garden beds. Then I finished the body of my sweater and also finished the 'Year to Inspire' granny square blanket.

Friday, February 7, 2020

Day 38 | Friday

Annetta | Went to the hospital to get my impending miscarriage confirmed. So I say "coffee at 4:30pm?" Why the hell not and let's not forget a pretty picture of it too!

Stephanie | Slow day in bed trying to keep from getting a full migraine. Practiced some crochet and a podcast.
