This week was all about me me me!! I was out of control taking pictures of myself this week. Thank goodness for you I’m not sharing all of them – just THREE. For heaven’s sake.

Before we get to me you get to see this gorgeous red-bellied woodpecker from our back yard. I think Dr. M did a fabulous job getting his picture. On Facebook someone asked why it’s called “red-bellied” instead of “red-headed.” Here is the answer: Cornell Lab explains as follows: "Red-bellied Woodpeckers are pale, medium-sized woodpeckers common in forests of the East. Their strikingly barred backs and gleaming red caps make them an unforgettable sight – just resist the temptation to call them Red-headed Woodpeckers, a somewhat rarer species that's mostly black on the back with big white wing patches." Females tend to have reddish bellies, hence the name.

The doves are back! Or, actually, just the one – which makes me kind of sad…
I made Karen a hat & this is one of the two scarves she sent back! I promptly had to wear it to church.
Here is picture two of me. I’ve been writing in my journal most nights & using my favorite of my mother’s multitudinous reading glasses to see what I’m doing. I’ve always thought they were the most fun, but could never envision a day when I would actually wear them. I guess almost 49 is that day! (Please ignore my freshly scrubbed face & samurai hair)

Gorgeous sky on my way to work.
Dr. M took a picture of this huge plane that flies out of Wright-Patterson AFB. He could tell you the name of it – I cannot. Hopefully he’ll mention it in the comments :)

There’s a moon in the sky! Dr. M did a great moon post – check it out here.

Geese doing what geese do…
I took Wednesday off from work because I’d had 8 hours of church over the weekend (my friend Joanne’s memorial service on Saturday & my first vestry meeting on Sunday) & felt the need to do some home maintenance before the Ash Wednesday service that evening. I decided that Ash Wednesday was an appropriate day to take the Christmas ornaments off of the tree.
Home from church, of course I had to take a picture of myself & post it on Facebook (just call me a Pharisee – I think?). The State of the Bug: looking a little deranged, as I contemplate doing minimal Facebooking for the next 47 days...

The best picture of the week in my opinion. This is one of the campus squirrels eating a McDonald’s French fry.
Happy Valentine’s Day to me! My sweetie gave me tulips, candy and Val Kilmer. Yum!

The tulips looking even more gorgeous.
There’s a story here. If you are my Facebook friend then you’ve already seen it. If not, you’ll have to wait until after Easter. Bwahahaha! (Um, please note that it’s not really all THAT exciting).
Go to Mamma Fran’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!
