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?

Pinky the geranium is showing signs of slowing down.
One of our tomatoes was staring at us :)

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.

The weekly squirrel.

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!|

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!
