Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Phil 4:6-7

52 weeks of daily life in pictures: trials and celebrations, the extraordinary and mundane -- whatever is unique to the week. Join me if you like.

Leftover tree candy.

Faith and Noah: Walking on (frozen) water (in low light).

 Feeding time.

 Joshua: Senior pictures (just head and shoulders in case you notice the untucked shirt).

Noah: Braces off.

 Happy day.

 Baby boy quilt.

 A new Mii, by Faith (and I'm so skinny!).

Italian biscotti. Yum.

New scarf, for moi.


"'Hear! hear!' screamed the jay from a neighboring tree, where I had heard a tittering for some time, 'winter has a concentrated and nutty kernel, if you know where to look for it.'"
- Henry David Thoreau


I have decided to try a linky list because so many lovely women decided to join me in my 52 Weeks project. There are no rules (except the two below)  -- if you want to start your 52 Weeks this week, go for it! I will keep the links up until next Wednesday, so you have almost a week to do it.

(1) Make sure you copy and paste the URL  of your 52 Weeks blog post ( and not your main blog URL). You could also use of Flickr photo page if that's how you do things.
(2) Include a link back here in your blog post or flickr photo page. 


  1. Looks like a "good week"...now pass me one of those biscotti to go with my morning coffee. :)

  2. I love this idea. I didn't take any photos this week. So maybe next week ... Would I start with week 1 or 3???

  3. Cheryl -- There are a few left and some have walnuts -- oh my! Hurry, hurry! Coffee's on, sister!

    You start with 1 and go (hopefully) for 52 weeks.

  4. Oh the biscotti has me drooling!

  5. So many pics to comment on...I love the kids wlaking outside the window and the color of the birdfeeder against the stark white. All morning I will wish I had that biscotti for my coffee!!

    :) Blessed weekend

  6. Lovely, Barbara! Thanks again for hosting. It was a big week for your two boys! (and your biscotti looks fabulous)

  7. Rebecca, I'll be posting the recipe on my food blog this week!

    Allison, The kids love, love walking on the creek when it freezes. It's a perspective they can only get a few times a year.

    Kimberlee, It was a big week for the boys -- I'm so glad I got pictures! I would normally never take my camera to a photo studio, but it was fun taking pics while the photographer got him all set up!

  8. Okay, I had a long bit to post today (many pics). I hope I linked okay! Sorry I'm a bit behind, but it's been an nutter weekend. Love ya!


I appreciate your comments -- sometimes I feel like I'm talking to myself!
