2012 Project 365 – Week Thirty-four

The first week of classes for Dr. M, and a coming to my senses for me – it was what we call a busy week around here!
Saturday, August 18th
Dr. M & I took a ride up to Yellow Springs. He wanted to show me the flowers.

And cows.

And goldfinches on thistle!

After our drive we had a very late lunch at Peaches Grill. Dr. M tried the (excuse my language) Arrogant Bastard beer because it seemed quite appropriate for him. Ha!

Sunday, August 19th  
Our front hanging basket hasn’t been the most beautiful thing this summer, but it sure is popular!


The geese are on the move…

Monday, August 20th   
I found a park sort of near the office & took a quick walk. There were these cool stairs (that fortunately I was walking down).

A last picture of the chickens. They’ve gone away & we’re not sure where, but we suspect a neighbor complained about them. Stupid neighbor.

Tuesday, August 21st
I don’t get these often because of the packaging waste, but I love these tuna kits. There’s even a breath mint in there. Yum!

An octagonal barn that Dr. M likes.

That evening we had a rainbow - and precious little rain. Sigh.

Wednesday, August 22nd   
We had our summer “party” at work (where we listen to speeches & then eat snacks). This year it was at Dave & Buster’s – a game place with pool, arcade type games & stuff like that. This is Jodi and Mary (trying to hide behind Jodi - she wrote the poem about me in my last post).

The State of the Bug. Don’t I look thrilled?

The sweet potatoes we brought back from NC have taken on a life of their own! We did eat some of them Daddy – I promise!

There’s a moon in the sky!

Thursday, August 23rd        
At work we got the pleasure of paying money to throw wet sponges at managers (who thinks up these things?). It was for charity – this month we’re raising money for the United Way. This is my ex-boss.

Someone there had this great T-shirt. I’m not a Maryland fan, but change “The Good” to NC State & it would be perfect!

It’s called the moon!

Friday, August 24th          
Dr. M drove by the field of sunflowers again – you can never have too many sunflower pictures!

I went out to Bravo with some friends from work – this is the remains of my dessert plate. It was pretty good ya’ll.

Doves on a wire, enjoying the end of the week.

The weekly squirrel – I think he’s working on his plan of attack. Heh.

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. 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! 


  1. I had a Monumental Blonde with my dinner last week. I wonder if she'd go well with the Arrogant Bastard....

    I'd like to talk about those doves. The two on the right are looking at the one on the left as though it is saying something of great import. What do you think it could be? Perhaps they're discussing the fate of the chickens.

  2. Looks like you had some good eats this week. I DO miss Ha-Ha's Pizza!

  3. I love seeing your week in photos. I just makes me smile to know you see so much through your lens. :c)

  4. The sweet potatoes look ready to be planted!

    I'm very disappointed that you didn't post the "before" shot of your dessert plate. :-p

  5. I miss "my" chickens! They made me laugh so much, and they loved me :-( I really love that picture of the doves...I obsess about them, and I'm happy to report that we have a healthy population out back. Rudee, given the potency of the Arrogant Bastard, I have a feeling he would definitely have hit on the Monumental Blonde, but may have had trouble, um, following through, lol!

  6. I think I would have been brave at Bravo and licked the platter clean!

  7. I don't know why but a field of sunflowers always brings a lump to my throat. Maybe I'm allergic to them.

  8. I loved the whole week. I'll be over next week.

  9. Loved the sunflowers.

    The hubs is a fan of micro breweries! Loves all the different varieties they can come up with!

    Have a great week.

  10. Rudee - if they doves are talking about the chickens they're saying, "Good riddance!" They did NOT get along. It was pretty funny.

  11. I have decided that we could be best friends. I love your shots each week. I love all the things Dr. M seems to get into...and you just look like folks I would enjoy. If I ever make it out your way....we must meet for a meal. Loved Loved Loved all the shots. Made my day.
