12 of 12

So I'm doing my 19th 12 of 12

12 pictures taken on the 12
th 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. While he said he would stop it at the end of 2010, it still looks up and running to me, so I'm running with it.

08:00.  On way to morning walk.  Our wheelbarrow.  I suppose it needs to be put away somewhere else.
08:05. Neighbors street-side garden. They have beautiful gardens, so much so that they are on the Garden Tour this upcoming weekend.
08:10. New construction in the 'hood.  And the house is going to be LEED certified.  The wall forms are styrofoam with concrete between them.
08:15. Neighbor's uninviting entrance to their house. Thorns. I love it.
13:30. Lunch.  Clementine season seems early, but they are tasting great.

13:45.  Bare bulb. Light outside my office.  It looks grim, no?  We're fixing that.

16:00.  Electricity went off, so I had a hard time doing actual work.  This is a heap of clothes we are donating after clening out our closets. I bagged them all up.
 17:00.  Windchimes and light.  Just off our back porch.

 17:05.  Trees, Clouds. Sky.  Still no storms. No known reason for power outage.

19:15.  Just sitting outside enjoying the daylight.  It was too dark inside to sit, so thought I'd enjoy natural light.

 19:17.  Self portrait #1887.  Against a setting sun.

21.30.  Life by a Coleman lantern.   Power ended up coming on at 02:42 today.

Does the Addams Family live in your neighborhood? Those thorns look OH SO inviting. :)

Looks like you made the most out of the mysterious power outage... love the picture of the building with the evening sunlight on it.

Clementines and pizza? A combo I have never thought of... hmmmm...

You eat those every day if I recall. Looks like frozen pizza. Another month and I didn't participate.

I have the same wind chimes. the bare bulb is a fire hazard. and the thorny entrance is priceless!

Good for you - cleaning out the closet of clothes. I like to do this regularly. I am over due and you have prompted me.

Actually, the thorn plants are a pretty good idea. I'll have to remember that when I actually have a yard of my own.

Those lanterns always make me think of the summers back in Ohio. My father would always bring it out when we'd have a bonfire.

This is something I may have to do next month.
