It was a quiet week in the Bug household. I made fun of Dr. M having Manflu, but he really was sick. He still took pictures for us every day (thank goodness), but he stayed home & recuperated. I think that today he’s finally starting to feel better.

Our neighborhood hawk. So pretty - & deadly!

There’s a moon in the sky!
Dr. M took a picture of this almost frozen pond. I love that tree.

Squirrels, birds…something you just never see around here. Ha!
Cardinal in a tree – they’re just so cheerful in the winter.
Look! This cardinal gave us a heart for Valentine’s Day! Can you see it?

Our doves are back – looking fat & contented.

The State of the Bug. I’m listening to another tender vittles audio book. This week it’s Sarah’s Key – about a Jewish girl in occupied France in 1942.

Doves on a wire. Love how the sun hits them up there.
I took a number of pictures at work today. I was reading Ruth’s blog about her special place to write (check it out here if you’d like), and I realized that most of my poetry gets written at work. Here’s my view – it’s not too bad. I’m looking out at the main entrance to the building & I have to laugh because the windows are reflective – so people walking in & out are checking out their looks (and sometimes making “adjustments”) & don’t know that I can see them. Ha!
I don’t know if you can see, but the guard is in the left of the picture getting ready to chase the geese away. He spends half his time chasing geese.
The company that owns the building (not the one I work for) is having a special initiative this year. The person who “wins” gets a new car. They’ve had signs in the lobby, but these just showed up in the bathroom this week. I don’t know about you, but I think I would be offended by them. They aren’t even aimed at me & I’m offended! What’s really funny is that the ladies that work for the other company don’t ever loiter in the bathroom that I can tell.

This squirrel is getting ready to ice skate.
I met a friend for lunch today - & did I get a picture of her or our meal (at Jason’s Deli)? No – I took a picture of the Trader Joe’s sign. I’d never been to one before so I wanted to commemorate the occasion.
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. He also takes pictures with our old reliable 7 megapixel Canon Powershot A710. The Bug uses our new Nikon Coolpix S6200 most of the time. If you’re interested in which camera was used for a particular shot, just ask!
