2012 Project 365 – Week Thirty-six

Hello from the infirmary! Dr. M is slowly recovering the cold he developed this week, but he thought that he should share with me. I’m not on any drugs, but it doesn’t really take much to upset my brain’s thought processes, so I would take what you read here with a grain of salt (and why would you do that? What does that even mean? These are the kinds of questions that plague me…).

Dr. M posted a lot of pictures from this week on his blog. Go here to check them out – including pictures of a hummingbird & a goldfinch which I didn’t use.

Also, I heavily edited some of the pictures using PicMonkey. It’s just so much fun to play around with it. Can you guys guess which ones?
Saturday, September 1st
Pinky the geranium is showing signs of slowing down.

One of our tomatoes was staring at us :)

Sunday, September 2nd  
We went to the Fair at New Boston with Dr. M’s history club. Dr. M was dressed as a back country farmer. He posted a lot more fair pictures on his blog here.

He was playing Sweet Hour of Prayer on the water glasses...

Monday, September 3rd   
The weekly squirrel.

Tuesday, September 4h
I saw this on my way home from work. It was so cool to clearly see where the rain was & wasn’t.

Our dinner – Dr. M made baked spaghetti out of leftovers. Yum!

Wednesday, September 5th   
I saw this on a van on the way home from work – LOL. Now this would be an interesting family to meet!


We had a potluck & our first choir practice of the season at our Rector’s house.

I was so glad that Joanne could come! She's the friend I eat with each week.

The State of the Bug - mmm food & music...

Our feisty organist - she's a hoot!

Thursday, September 6th        
Fall is a’comin!

Went to dinner with friends & saw this on the wall.

Friday, September 7th          
This was growing between the sidewalk & the street in front of our house. Dr. M moved it back to the garden – we’ll see if we get anything. Whatever it is!

I think this donkey just might be preggers. At least I hope so because otherwise maybe she should lay off the grass for a while! (I seriously want to make some snarky comment about Democrats here, but since I am a Democrat that seems self-defeating. But the Republicans among you can just have at it if you want to!)

I went to church this evening to set up the altar for Sunday. Here’s my Facebook status: I'm on Altar Guild duty this week AND I'm the Lector on Sunday. So today I was setting up the altar & putting the hymn numbers on the board and marking the scripture passages to be read & decided to go ahead & practice reading them since I was there. I almost cried when I read the New Testament lesson (from James 2). It's at the heart of most of my political decisions. Here's an excerpt: ...If a brother or sister is naked and lacks daily food, and one of you says to them, "Go in peace; keep warm and eat your fill," and yet you do not supply their bodily needs, what is the good of that?

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. great pics as always but I have to say, your organist is a mite scary looking!

  2. Great pics. How can you have a civil war? I was going to give a serious answer until I finally got the joke. I'm having a slow day.

  3. I think I saw that gal in a piano bar v-e-r-y late one night. Complete with the Phyllis Diller laugh!

  4. That IS a very appropriate and touching Bible verse.

    I love the organist photo! She LOOKS like a hoot. And I don't know much about donkeys, but that donkey looks kind of old, doesn't it?!

  5. An eventful week in the life of the Bug. Sure hope the cold is resolved soon!

  6. I am with you on the food and music. Loved the shots from the country fair. I love attending those kinds of things. They are so much fun....and different.

  7. hoping you are feeling better today! I was at foster care training all day yesterday and the lady next to me was coughing and hacking the whole time...seriously if you are that sick WHY would you come where you are going to be closed in a room for 9 hours with others.....argh!!!

    love the fair pictures. I wish we had things like that around here!! looked like a blast!

    that verse is exactly why we are in the process of being certified to foster!

  8. That fair looked like a lot of fun! Love the weekly squirrel.

  9. Well I hope you are feeling better, having a cold is no fun!

    I love making baked spagetti out of leftovers, one of my all time favorites.

    That festival looked like fun. We have a very similar one but on a much smaller scale her in our town. It is at a local historical site and they do crafts, sell quilts, have vendors with food as well as demonstration of old time rifle shooting, there is usually a woman who works on a loom and lots of other stuff too.

    Feel better!

    Loved the tomato in the hat!

  10. Love all your pics, especially the squirrel.

  11. The volunteer plant looks like a squash! Lucky you. Keep us posted.

  12. We have two festivals like that one nearby. They are a lot of fun!
    Hope you feel better soon!

  13. i'm hoping the figure with the gun is supposed to be Han Solo

    The Weekly Squirrel is a great shot

  14. Mmm...I think I like the idea of the pregnant donkey. The nation can always use a few more Ohio democrats.
