2012 Project 365 – Week Fifty-One

I can’t believe Christmas is in just a couple of days. I’m pretty sure at this point that I’m ready. Maybe. How do things look where you are?

Saturday, December 15th
Our 22nd anniversary! Here's one of my anniversary gifts.

We went out in the evening & looked at Christmas lights. This isn’t a great picture, but I had to try to capture the flying pig. Heh.

Sunday, December 16th
We decided to go out today for our anniversary. The restaurant’s flag was at half-mast.

I had tilapia (I ate half of it) & Dr. M got a steak, and then I got the cutest little dessert. I got to keep the pail.

On the way home we drove around & saw lots of sheep. These ones were kind of scary – they all started baritone baaing & running toward us as if they thought we were going to feed them.

The Moon!

Monday, December 17th     
We mailed our cards.

And I arrived at work to find a MESS. We have a mini fridge & I found the door open with cans laying everywhere. Apparently one of my drinks had exploded over the weekend. It wasn’t even in the freezer!

Tuesday, December 18th   
Dr. M put got out his Christmas train.

And I had a mishap with a hat.

Wednesday, December 19th   
Moody sun...

The weekly squirrel.

Thursday, December 20th      
A woman I work with had this penguin speaker – so cute!

The bison in the house staged a protest about the Christmas train.

And I had success with a hat!

Friday, December 21st      
We got a little snow just in time for Christmas!

I hope everyone has a fabulous holiday!

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. 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! 


  1. That little dessert pail looks very cute - what was in it?

    Right now, I'm a little jealous of your snow. It just looks so much more Christmas-y than seeing people walk around in flip-flops!

  2. happy anniversary!

    Those sheep are a little scary...with their dark faces it doesn't look like they have any eyes!!! :/

    The hat is funny. But I can't say anything seeing as I couldn't even attempt one!

  3. I like the drama and surprise of your hats. Imagine the suspense as you crochet!

  4. I love the socks on those sheep. They have such beautiful fleece!

    I often wonder why I persist when I know I'm knitting something and it's not the right size. While the knitter in my brain argues with my hands, I just keep right on knitting. Someday, I'll learn to listen. Gauge is such a daunting concept.

    Merry Christmas, Bug! And, no, I'm not ready.

  5. I love the penguin speaker and the flying pig! And Dr. M's hat looks great!

  6. Happy Anniversary and Merry Christmas.

  7. I hope you and your family have a safe and happy holiday. Merry Christmas, and Happy Anniversary also.


  8. happy anniversary and happy christmas - liking the hat

  9. Happy Anniversary and happy day After Christmas!

    I have had a few of those hat mishaps myself.


  10. Love Dr. M in the toboggan. Too cute. Loved the shots this week. Happy Belated anniversary. Sorry I missed it. Hoping your New Year is amazing.


Thanks for stopping by - I'd love to hear what you have to say!
