2012 Project 365 – Week Forty-Five

This week has the fewest pictures ever (well, maybe not ever). I’m not sure why, but we were just not digging the cameras out as much for some reason. One reason is that we’re very concerned about Dr. M’s uncle Barry (the uncle Barry who came up to visit in the summer & fed Buffy the Buffalo). He’s in the hospital and not doing well at all. Please keep him and his family in your prayers. Thanks!
Saturday, November 3rd  
We had our Trick or Treating tonight – and it was miserable! Cold rain mixed with some snow – yuck! We thought we were having it on Tuesday the 30th, so Dr. M had prepared our candy bucket. Unfortunately, these guys might look menacing mildly threatening, but they didn’t keep us from dipping into the bucket, so I had to buy more candy on Saturday.

I posted this picture last week – cold Dr. M ready for the goblins.

Sunday, November 4th
Looks to me like this sparrow & this squirrel are having some kind of discussion.

Monday, November 5th   

Tuesday, November 6th  
We still have some nice flowers.

We were glued to the television.

Wednesday, November 7th     
The Tax Time Pig is nekkid! Perhaps he was in mourning from the election? Earlier in the week he did have some clothing on.

I, on the other hand, was not in mourning. The State of the Bug: Relieved!

Thursday, November 8th        
Dr. M saw this Red Tailed Hawk today. And someone who was not a hawk who is perhaps trying to blend in with the woodwork :)

And I saw the giant setting sun on my way home from work.

Friday, November 9th          
Dr. M saw this guy with his family.

Lots of chickadee activity these days!

I spent a couple of days in Columbus representing my church at a Diocesan Conference. Friday night I spent some time before bed in that nice chair reading a book.

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. When it comes to Halloween candy, I buy three times.

    1. A few weeks ahead of time, to stock up.
    2. The day before, to replenish the stock that I ate.
    3. The day after when it's 50% off, because it's such a great bargain.

  2. No little pilgrim hat and buckle shoes for the tax pig.

  3. That's interesting that Halloween was not celebrated on Wednesday there. We had no talk of Tuesday or Saturday here and had no one come other than Wednesday night.

  4. I love the pictures, as always, and your encapsulating descriptions. Not surprisingly, I'm partial to the picture of the grazing sheep. Glad to see your week! Looking forward to the next batch.

  5. poor piggy...just a regular porker

  6. i wonder what squirrels and sparrows talk about

    how expensive nuts are - cheap?


  7. Ha! Yes, the squirrel was saying, "nuts are expensive...how about seed?"
    "Cracked corn?"


  8. love the picture of the sparrow & the squirrel... I wonder what they were thinking :-)

  9. You were talking about catching up on my blog, but somehow I got really behind on yours, too! How did THAT happen? Looks like you had a great week. I love staying in hotels!

  10. That picture of Dr. M sitting with the umbrella is just too funny! Definitely an eventful election week! Perfect reading spot...love time to do that.

  11. Loved the candy pictures. Dr. M looks too cute in his chair with the umbrella. Ours was actually on the 31st and the weather was amazing. Hope you have a good week...I am off to a late start this week.

  12. How can you still have such beautiful flowers?
