One Good Thing… Day 254 to Day 263 {my project 365}

September 19, 2016

” Every day may not be good but there’s one good thing in every day.” ~ Alice Morse Earl

And here we are again. A penny short. A day late. But I’m here and so are my pics from the last week or so of my #onegoodthing IG project 365.

Day 254. A gorgeous sunset. They keep getting better and better, especially after a storm. Someone pinch me? How did I get so lucky to be able to enjoy this view every night?


Day 255. Finn was watching over me doing my school work. A marathon session it was. But worth it. Got an A on my quiz. Getting it done and working towards my goal.


Day 256. Hubby told me to come quick and grab my camera because there was a flock of Ibis in the backyard but I was more interested in this endangered wood stork who decided to grace us with his presence. So excited I managed to get a shot of him.


Day 257. Working in a school science lab is never, ever dull. Here are the new baby turtles we rescued and 2 days later another batch arrived. They are just popping up everywhere.


Day 258. Finn lounging near me on the couch. She’s happy as long as she can stretch out on one of our super soft and comfy blankets. And don’t you dare try take one away.


Day 259. Curriculum night surprises are always fun. This was Ally’s self-portrait hiding behind a list of things she likes and we had to guess who our child was. I love this so much!


Day 260. It’s that time of year again. Friday night lights. But not to watch football (okay, maybe a little). It’s all about half-time show and the dance team. So proud of how far my Ash has come. She’s pretty awesome.


Day 261. Stormy skies. Snapseed helps add a little drama and popping color.


Day 262. Could she be any more gorgeous? I just love her smile. Of course I’m super biased. She is my favorite red head after all. Posing at the furniture store. We had so much fun shopping for some more pieces together. Of course, she thinks my taste sucks. Lucky for me she already outfitted her room and this one was all mine. 🙂


Day 263. The two big kids with our my new lab pets this afternoon. Ashley and Tangier, the leopard geckos. They are pretty cool. The geckos. Well, the kids too. And yes, they are animal lovers, just like their mama.


So there you have it. Recap of the last 10 days of my #onegoodthing project 365.

Hope all is well with you! Have a fantastic week! See you in a bit.

xoxo, Susi

    You are so very lucky to have that gorgeous view, and we are lucky that you share it with us. I would never grow tired of seeing that sunset or sunrise.
    I love all the wildlife in this post!! 🙂
    And you are not biased, she IS gorgeous! And strikes a perfect pose. (although I am also a redish head too, and we all need to stick together so we can take over the world one day. LOL)

      Ha! Yes, red heads have to stick together! And I will keep sharing my views don’t you worry about that! 🙂

    Holy cow! Those turtles are everywhere! And they are adorable.
    I can’t believe how big your daughter is getting and she is absolutely beautiful…just like her mama!
    That sky picture is brilliant. I love what you did with the filters. Makes every thing pop!
    I hope that you have a wonderful week!

      You are right. The turtles are everywhere. I find new homes for them bit by bit. They can’t all stay in the tank together like this. It’s ok for now… Ash is growing up so much. Seeing the difference between 6th grade and now is mind-boggling. Just looking back through this blog makes me gasp sometimes. My kids are growing up and there’s no stopping them.

    Awww – what a great post, Susi. Your kids, all of them, are amazing. Of course, I am somewhat biased towards the artsy stuff 🙂
    Just look at those baby turtles… and leopard geckos, aren’t they great?

      Thanks Claudia. The kids sure make me proud! And I love my lab animals. 🙂
