12 of 12

So I'm doing my tenth 12 of 12. 12 pictures taken on the 12th of the month. Since I only post once per day, you get my images the following day. All pictures taken with my iPhone. Click images to enlarge, if you choose.

Created by Chad Darnell (thanks Chad!) and picked up from, what I can tell, a number of random bloggers who then link back to him and vice versa. He intends 2010 to be his final year of doing this, but hopefully someone will pick it up from there.

I mean - this is possibly the last originally sponsored 12 of 12. Bummer.

07:10. Went outside in the pouring rain to get the paper. The rain was there; no paper. Frick. But I do like the colours of the sky.

07:40. I heard the news today, oh boy! The papers arrived. Normally they show before 05:30.

08:15. Prepping for the gym. Glasses off. Contacts in. Teeth brushed. Other things happened here, but no way, no how you're getting pictures of that!

08:25. Still raining. On way to gym. I'm dry in the car. The sky is not blue. It's just the tinting on the upper part of my windshield. Still, I thought the pic looked cool.

08:45. Looking down over the free weight area of the gym. I'm upstairs at this point, doing lots of sit-ups. Soon, I'll be down there - lifting stuff.

08:50. Still upstairs at the gym. Looking out at the rain and the new wind-turbine at Case Western Reserve University.

10:30. Problem with 12 on 12 on a Sunday. I have to take pictures of my EDL stuff. Chores.

12:00. Sophie in her chair. But let's be honest, all chairs belong to Sophie. Except the two white ones. She's not allowed up on them. ....when we're here, anyway.

12:35. More EDL crap. Laundry.

17:30. Our tree. Possibly the prettiest one we've ever bought.
We actually got it on Saturday, but just brought it in on Sunday. We'll get around to decorating it and I'll post those pics whenever we get in gear. You can see Sophie at the bottom left of the tree (with her laser eyes). She doesn't get in the tree, but she sure likes to check it out.

21:11. My week's supply of clementines. Hell, who am I kidding - they won't even last the work week.

21:50. Just a glimpse of stuff in the basement that needs to be put away - a step stool and screens from our dining room French doors. I just snapped it when going to get laundry out of the dryer. ooooh.....exciting.

Well, hopefully that isn't all folks. I suppose I can do 12 of 12 on my own if no one picks up the organized version. I'd say I'd do the arranging, but I'm pretty sure I do not have the time to get it all together. I'm sure we'll all find out in a month.

The last picture made me laugh. See, when it falls on a Sunday, you're supposed to plan something conducive to picture taking. It's still raining here but just over in Ottawa it's 20 degrees colder. That's coming soon I fear.

I was looking in your laundry basket for your grundy undies, but couldn't see any. Do you have to incinerate them? Sorry, 5th grade humor...

I am VERY happy to see the wind turbine. Hopefully it is just one of many to come there at the university.

Love the cool! And I'm never far from one of those little yummy tangerines. And I agree with you...that is one great looking tree!

Very cool gym!
I am sure Sophie will appreciate this tree even more once decorated!

Have a merry Christmas time!

"Other things happened here, but no way, no how you're getting pictures of that!" -why not? (she asked innocently)

and, like cubby, I was looking for some sexay undies in the washload; damn, I AM disappointed!

I put up my 4' faux tree yesterday on my sunporch; that way, steven and meredith don't get a chance to climb it or knock the ornaments off. (you thought I was going to say balls, didn't you?)

you have a nice house!

Now that our household is kittyless, we're able to put tinsel on the tree. I love tinsel and we did without for 22 years, but putting it on the tree reminds me of why we can do it now. Our kitties camped under the tree every day. They loved it.

Christmas trees are pretty much one big kitty toy really, aren't they? I like Sophie's laser eyes :-) And the tree is very pretty - I bet it looked great when you'd decorated it!

Sorry my comment is late - I wanted to wait until my own 12 was up, before I visited everyone else's.
