Project 365: Week One

I thought it might be fun to participate in Project 365 after spotting a few participants around Blogdom. We take a vast amount of photos around here each month, and I thought it might be fun to pick one per day to sum things up. If nothing else it would make for a clever way to get plenty of use out of the new gift Mr Scarecrow gave me for Christmas, right?  So here's Week One in photos around our little Patch (or rather the first 9 days of the month..):

For New Year's Day we had our annual "Year In Number" pancakes. There was much rejoicing that I free formed the numbers, because last year I had a terrible time with the 2s.

Humphrey raided the fruit bowl during a game of Hide & See with his friend Peanut. He's a new addition to our home sense Christmas, and we're super eager to dig into his next adventure: Surprises According To Humphrey.

The boys received bows and arrows from their grandparents in America and couldn't wait to get outside and try them out. It kept them busy all afternoon.. Pj's and all.

After dinner we decided to take a stroll on the beach. While checking out a tide pool we noticed the local cruise ship was headed towards the mainland. We see this daily, sometimes twice a day in the summer months.

While the boys were watching Peter Pan I decided to make a sponge cake and when I cracked open the last egg it glared at me. I nearly spilled it on the counter in my horror! Despite it's angry eyes, it still worked in the cake!

After taking a late trip into town to return library books and run by K-mart we decided to pop into the office Mr S. was working. Since he was all alone we hung out for his final 45 minutes of work. That, and I refused to let the excessive price I'd paid for parking go to waste.

While camping on Friday night, we went out for a walk on the savannah in the evening to look for wombats. While walking through a trail near our tent I spotted this fun "hideout" and the boys and I decided it would be a great place to play in the morning.

After a fun day of game playing, wombat spotting, potaroo luring, and swimming we settled back in at camp for dinner, cookies, and fun stories while swatting at the world biggest mozzies!

We spotted this sign on our way into the National Park we camped at (there were a few inside of it too) and I knew I had to snap a photo of it on the way home for family across the big pond. The Park Ranger, perhaps a lot misinformed about extinction, endangered, and how one should help the situation, had a great laugh at us stopping for the photo.
