Project 365 ~ Week 51

The second last week of Project 365! I can't believe it. What a year. I'm excited about being able to look back on it through these pictures. What a treat! And speaking of treats, last Saturday we did a trial run of what we were thinking of baking for Christmas.

And Sunday, we picked out our Christmas tree! And this is the really, really nice man who sells the trees. He even drove it home for us, which was awesome because though we went planning to get a little tree, we came home with the biggest one we've ever bought!

And then we decorated.

On Monday I did some visiting, including having a wonderful lunch with my dear friend Vern.

And then I went out and had a coffee with the wonderful Genie Sea. I can't believe we even talked about the propensity of bloggers to take pictures of everything, and I totally didn't! Well, this is what it looked like when I left my house to go meet her.

Then it was time for more baking. Gingerbread cookies this time.
And then shopping. Thank you, Romana, for that wonderful portable red bag. It saved me this week!

On Friday Justin and I spent the entire day baking and packing up goodies for friend & family celebrations this weekend.

And then because we were in the midst of a huge snowstorm, Shannon and I decided to meet online instead of in person. We celebrated our accomplishments of 2008 together and cast our goals for 2009. I'll be sharing more of that soon!

Project 365 is my attempt to capture a year in my life through a photograph a day. On Saturday's I'll post the week's pics. At the end of the year, I'll create a video of all these precious moments. Feel free to participate at any time. Yours can be Project 347 or Project 292. It's up to you. A few people have asked me if I'll be launching Project 365 - The '09 Edition. I believe I will, and I hope you'll join me. More on that next week!

I often do trial runs of recipes I am planning on making for an occasion. An artichoke casserole is in the oven right now. I have never made it before and I want to bring it to my MIL's for Christmas dinner.

I love how you documented your journey this year!

I knew I wanted to leave you a post because it is after all the second last chance I'll get to do so...and as I read through your week, I opened up the links to the blogs of people you know...and surprise! of mine too. that was fun and you are very welcome! I then perused the three different blogs from the three people you mentioned and Wow, what a difference - it's a reflection on you Jamie of how you attract such diversity to your life and that is beautiful. Thank you for sharing you life this way with the world, it's an honour to be a part of it!

How did I miss this one? Fantastic Jamie! I love those cookies you made and it's so smart to Oovoo or Skype instead of getting together when the weather is that treacherous, LOL. I have totally loved your 365 project and am glad you're doing it again.
