This is Not Monday Miscellany

Shhh - Harry Dresden is in dire straits (straights?) & I have to finish this book before I can start the one for book club (which is Sunday!). See ya tomorrow!

2014 Project 365 – Week Forty-two

Dr. M took some lovely fall pictures this week. If you’d like to check them out (& you should!), go here. Since he posted most of the best pictures on his blog, about all that’s left are my daily walk pictures. Sorry!

Sunday, October 12th     
My daily walk – more crazy Halloween decorations.

Monday, October 13th    
My daily walk. I loved this bird bath! And although my walk was NOT cool (75 degrees!), it WAS cool that there was a squirrel in the background while I was taking the picture.

Tuesday, October 14th   
If you missed Dr. M in his pajamas, go here. This is day two of spirit week – he’s dressed as a farmer.

On his way home from school he saw a rainbow!

My daily walk – yes, it was 16 degrees cooler than the day before! Check out that cat – getting into the Halloween spirit!

Wednesday, October 15th
Today’s spirit outfit – it was white-out day.

Waited until after choir practice to walk. It was just a little bit DARK!

Thursday, October 16th  
More spirit week – today they were supposed to dress like a decade. Can you guess which one these two cool cats are representing?

As I mentioned on my Thursday post, I had the post put in for my dental implant. Then I spent the rest of the morning running around town. Fortunately our town looks like this right now. Lovely!

My daily walk. We drove to Clarksville, Tennessee in the afternoon, so that Dr. M could go to a conference at Austin Peay University. It was late when we got in so I just did 20 minutes on the treadmill at the hotel.

Friday, October 17th
The final day of spirit week – Dr. M sent this picture back to his school. See, even though we’re not there, we’re participating!

After dropping Dr. M off at the school, I went thrift store shopping (for a Hawaiian shirt – more on that next week). Then spent some quality time crocheting a new project & listening to this most excellent book by the author of Cold Mountain. He’s SUCH a good writer!

I headed back to campus a little early so I could take my daily walk before Dr. M was finished.

Saturday, October 18th    
Some random pictures from Clarksville. Dr. M did more conferencing in the morning & then we went downtown to check out a pub that had been recommended. As mentioned in yesterday’s post I had French toast. Dr. M got the shrimp & grits. Then we wandered around while Dr. M took a few pictures of some of the architecture.

Before we drove home I took my daily walk along the river – boy I wish I could walk here every day!

Hope everyone has a great week!

I had a leisurely morning at the hotel. Dr. M left around 7:15 to go to do his conferency thing & I planned to sleep in. Ha! I got up around 7:30 and had breakfast (nice soft biscuits, gravy & scrambled eggs). Then I had second breakfast about 2 hours later (another biscuit with honey). Then Dr. came back & we checked out & went to a pub where I ate...

After all of that you might wonder what I had for dinner. Well, I'll tell you. After we had brunch we drove like fiends for about 6 hours (listening to Charles Frazier's Thirteen Moons - fabulous!) & now I'm sipping on some black bean soup. I know, it doesn't follow the day's theme, but it's what was available & I'm content.

Now I'm off to see what happened on Facebook while I was driving in the hinterlands. Night all!

A Poem for Friday

Here we are halfway through October & I'm already at a loss as to what to post today. So I'm just going to write some words & pretend they're a poem.

I am personable enough
at first glance
all hey and how are you
and hope your momma
is doing better
but given the choice
between being with people
or sitting alone with
my thoughts
or a book
or a crochet hook
well you know
how that goes

Written while sitting alone in a hotel room in Tennessee eating microwavable mashed potatoes. Dr. M is at the dinner for the conference he's attending. I could have gone, and would have enjoyed the keynote speaker (the topic is women in WWI), but he gave me the choice so here I am, pleased as punch :) Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a book to read.

P.S. Please note that I had the post put in for an implant yesterday, so my mouth is kind of tender - mashed potatoes are just my speed!

Throw Back Thursday - Terrible Twos!!

I don't know - in this last picture I think I look like some child from Grapes of Wrath or something. Ha!

Black and White

My Facebook friend Shers Gallagher challenged me to post a black and white picture per day for 7 days. It was fun! Of course I cheated by just taking regular pictures & using software to remove the color :)

Going home

Bed head

End of day
