Week 1

Project 365 button designed by

I couldn't resist. Project 365 was such a good way to document our year, I have to do it again. Thanks, Sara, for continuing to host!

Driving into Cordoba yesterday afternoon, we were astonished at the number of spectators lining the road, waving and taking our photo.... Oh wait, it's the Dakar race participants they want to see and there are two Dakar vehicles right behind us.
(not my photo; it's from this website)

Our daughter was fascinated by the many Oreo flavors and snapped this photo.

But forget grocery stores; she'd rather be at the mall. In this area she is more than a seasoned pro ...spotting bargains at 50 yards, zeroing in on the lowest price, able to leap other customers in a single bound -- she's Super Shopper! Her shopping stamina is super human too; she shops 'til I drop :-)  Have to say, leather goods are some of my favorite eye candy.

Fireworks on New Year's Eve! We drove up the hill beyond where our co-workers live. We discovered last year that this is a great spot to look out over the city. I especially like this shot of Tina with fireworks in the background, even if we did cut off half her face.

On our drive around the lake New Year's day we stopped a number of times; this was by the old dam. Wikipedia has a short article about El Dique San Roque.

And finally, I think it will be my tradition to always include a photo of our peaches in the first Project 365 post each year.
One small and one large limb have broken from the weight of the fruit this year. We'll have to either prop them up in the future, or thin them out. The tree is absolutely LOADED.

That's all for this week. Welcome Project 365 newcomers and a shout out to all those who are returning!


  1. Oh my goodness...I need those peaches now!! Those look so good. I can't wait till my two trees produce that much!

  2. Very nice photo of the fireworks, perfect timing of the camera. I don't think this crazy weather has affected the peaches, at least I hope not...they look delicious.
    The purse is very pretty, nice addition to Spring...if it ever gets

  3. The peaches do look great! I looked at your profile,and saw you were a missionary! Thanks for your willingness to go,and share the gospel! I went on 2 short term trips this past year, Venezuela,and Uganda. Both were amazing!

  4. Ok, I just saw this was last!
