DAILY CALENDAR CHALLENGE #049 – FEBRUARY 18

Another new week to get off to a good start …

#1 THE ORIGAMI CALENDAR CHALLENGE – LITTLE BOXES PART TWODSC05574

Today’s challenge was to do Friday’s challenge a second time. If you’ll remember, on Friday I did Part 1 of six parts …DSC05519  Today I did Part 2 that would look just like Part 1 except I folded with a different color of Oriental folding paper. DSC05565  Also I was able to put Part 1 and Part 2 together.DSC05567 Now only four more days of deja vu folding and I have the entire project completed.

Also I felt that I wimped out on the weekend origami challenge. So I followed the instructions and turned a rectangular piece of printer paper into a square piece of printer paper folding-paper. DSC05568 DSC05569  And once I had a piece of white folding-paper already pre-started for folding, I decided to continue folding and create the traditional origami crane.

#2 THE MENSA PUZZLE CALENDAR – A PUZZLE THAT HAS NOTHING AT ALL TO DO WITH TODAY BEING PRESIDENT’S DAY

If my title for today’s puzzle sounds like I’m a little bitter today, I am. If they would have asked a question about presidents … any president … I probably would have breeze right through it. But they ask a question about a movie director, and not a movie director who had the same name as a president. But a movie director who’s last name has no letters in common with the last name of President Kennedy. Also I drew a complete blank on this one. XERO! NADA! TOTAL NOTHING! Well, so much for getting off to a good start.

#3 THE POST-A-DAY PUZZLE CALENDAR – MONORAIL

As you might have noticed , I did this one using a pencil. And there were a lot of erasures before I got back to where I started. But I did get it finished. And thanks to laundering my socks and underwear yesterday, Mlle. Renee  and I have nothing to do today but wait for the rain and thunderstorms to start around noon. Also I slow roasted the most tender beef round roast yesterday that actually melted in my mouth. So with roast beef dinner leftovers left over, I won’t have to cook either. So today I get to read and listen to the new 2 CELLOS CD IN2ITION that I bought Saturday.

Perfect for a rainy day!
