Welcome to project 365. This writer of ghost stories, mother of two, and wife to the Professor, aka "Ghost Hunk" (for 18 years), finds inspiration everyday, even if she sometimes forgets. So for the next year, I will document these little epiphanies, whether it's a bug on the windshield or some brilliant, breathless moment in this crazy life or something in between.

Day 148

Whitman got his shave and is a happy dog again.  Who knew the mutt would match the decor?!

Day 147

What about a crazy red-headed woman with a black dog taking pictures of the lamest things...is that suspicious? (Just to be clear, the woman, not the dog, is taking the pictures.) Better watch my step...

Day 145

Yeah, it's that kind of night.  Ghost Daughter has a cold and a rocking chair on the porch is just right.  Now if were only on OUR porch...

Day 144

Time out for a brief celebration.  My colleague Porsha A. is about to become Porsha M., so we had a little pre-wedding celebration in the Mac Lab.  Yes, there were beer nuts...but no beer.  Oh well...

This rig has been on campus for the last few weeks and I still don't know who drives it.  Some faculty member has another kind of passion.

Storm clouds kept us on shore today, but it was an awesome weekend.  Love you all, my friends!  Thanks for putting up with me...

Day 139

Howdy, Tex

This little guy was found near death alongside a highway in Texas.  Thankfully, friends of a friend of a friend rescued him and brought him to Florida where he found a forever home with my best friend, Lisa.

Day 138

So I didn't post this one before midnight, but I have the best reason...partying with my sister from another mother!

Day 137

Today's little chore:  take down the hem of Ghost Hunk's trousers.  Yes, my 6'1 hunk of man needs a little more break in his pant leg...meanwhile I'm cutting 6 inches off my own!  We are almost a foot apart in height, and frankly, my dears, that's a perfect fit.

Day 134

It's SOCCER TIME again!

Our local YMCA is just down the road from our house, and today I signed Ghost Daughter up for another season of soccer.  Now...we have to get new cleats, new shorts, and maybe a new soccer ball!

Day 133

Via the iPhone:  Ghost Daughter brought a new friend to tea...love those little moments.  I wonder if ponies like caramel milk teas.

Day 131

I had to include two photos today...it's the FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!  I can't believe it.  Ghost Daughter starts 4th grade and Ghost Son is jumping into high school (whoa there, stomach).  I hope they both have an awesome day!

Day 130

It really is that time of year again.  Tomorrow is the first day of school.  Ghost Son has two backpacks to bustle off to high school and Ghost Daughter has hers stuffed with all the essentials as well.  Ghost Son is excited and nervous and wishing there was a little more summer, but he is proud of the summer homework he did and looking forward to leaping off on the right foot for Freshman year.  Ghost Daughter is just looking forward to being busy again.  And mama...wishes they wouldn't grow up so darn fast.

Day 129

This is how we do movie night in the Ghost house...cafeteria trays, turkey sliders, and Tangled.

Day 128

Courtesy of the iPhone:  Yikes!  Let High School begin...!  It was open house and Ghost Son got to see all of his teachers and classrooms...and the mascot.  A bit overwhelming perhaps.

Day 126

When I went to my herb garden for a handful of basil, tonight, I discovered a visitor.  Unfortunately, my camera is giving me fits again, and this is the best shot I could get of the little dude.  Ack! ((mama don't do spiders!))

Day 124

(Courtesy of my iPhone):  Anyone who knows me know that I am NOT a bug person.  ((shudder)) But there are some critters you just can't help but be impressed with.  This praying mantis was hanging around outside Hobby Lobby today as I walked to my car.  The brown camouflage doesn't quite match the yellow concrete of the light post, but he is awe-inspiring, nonetheless.

Day 123

Ghost Son is re-discovering his passion and filling a sketch book with fabulous new work.  Keep an eye out for the launch of his website soon.

Day 122

The new Student Center at the university.  The faculty & staff might just have to take it over!

Day 121

Baby dragon time...that's what we call anoles, anyway. I wish I had the good camera with me. Oh well.  This handsome dude greeted me and a female of his own species this morning.   Baby dragonette was hanging around at the base of this lamp post, making him work for it...
