2011 Project 365 – Week Forty-Nine
OK, before you do anything else, if you have a Facebook account you have to go read this post & then vote for this lovely lady.
Go on, I’ll wait for you. Back? Ok, well, this is a banner week – two States of the Bug and a Tax Time Pig!
Sunday, November 27th
We drove home from NC today. We got off the interstate at one point and were searching for sheep. Instead, we found goats! Their guard (Alpaca? Llama? How can you tell?) was giving us the stink eye.
But they all ran straight for the car – probably thinking we had some food or something. No wonder they needed guarding!
Then we saw sheep.
We were amazed that this bumper sticker has survived 7 years.

Dr. M wondered around a cemetery on his way home from school. I don’t know why, but I really like cemetery pictures.
The first State of the Bug. I got some excellent news, which you can read about here.

You might remember that this window had a pumpkin in it last month. Now we’ve shifted into Christmas mode.
That night we had our first glimpse of snow. Whoopee? I do like to watch it fall…
Wednesday, November 30th
The Tax Time Pig is showing support for the Cincinnati Bengals.
Dr. M took a number of fabulous pictures on his way home from school.
Thursday, December 1st
First of all, Happy Birthday to my brother! If you’d like to read last year’s tribute, check here.
This was the temp as I left the house Thursday morning.
I had promised myself that I could wear my new toboggan once the temp was below 30. So here’s the 2nd State of the Bug – tobogganed!
Later that day Dr. M ran into a murder of crows – yikes! To me it looks like a Hitchcock movie waiting to happen!
Friday, December 2nd
It was a bird kind of day on Friday. First, Dr. M took a picture of a nuthatch.
Then he saw a juvenile peregrine falcon!
And then he saw a red tailed hawk.
Saturday, December 3rd
This was my breakfast this morning. Grits, egg, homegrown tomato & livermush! Yum! I usually stock up on livermush on trips to NC. [Note: click on the link at your own peril – you don’t really want to know what’s in livermush.]
Here’s our tree. Ha! We’ve decided to go minimalist with our inside decorations this year - & this little tree suits the needs of our hearts. It’s on top of a gorgeous chess board that Dr. M’s dad made. He gave it to Dr. M for his birthday.
Go to Sara’s blog here to see the blogs of all the other Project 365 participants. Have a great week!
Most of our photos are taken with a 12 megapixel Nikon D5000 DSLR, using a 55-200mm zoom lens. This is the camera that Dr. M takes with him most days. We also take pictures with our old reliable 7 megapixel Canon Powershot A710. This is the camera that the Bug uses most of the time. If you’re interested in which camera was used for a particular shot, just ask!
