12 of 12

So I'm doing my 44th 12 of 12

Normally it is 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 and picked up from, what I can tell, a number of random bloggers who then link back to him and vice versa. Janet Hughes is now hosting the link that puts many 12 of 12'ers together (sometimes she keeps current, mostly she does not, so I might have to drop this link / reference).  The number of people linking don't seem to be as robust as they once were, but that stands to reason.  

I still continue to do this, because of all my consistent post topics, I actually like this one the most.

06:08.  Someone is yelling at me. 6:08!

Sophie is telling me her food bowl is empty. Fair enough, it was. She's tolerating her diet fairly well, though she's only lost a half pound in a little over a month.

08:55. Right before yoga. 

Mats facing each other, which doesn't bother me. Instructor was decent - not great, but decent. 

  10:10. Post-yoga smoothies with David and others from the practice.  Mine is a Raspberry Blast.  Raspberries and Cranberries and other stuff.  The seeds get in my teeth. 

10:40.  The Lego Store.  I was buying a birthday present for a nephew. 

Yes, they have pre-packaged Legos - the most expensive being the Death Star at $399.95!!!!.  I maybe inadvertently blurted out 'fuck' when I saw the sticker price on that. But they also have a wall of individual pieces in various colours. 

12:45.  Sitting on my parent's deck with assorted nieces, nephews, sisters, brothers-in-law, cousins, parents, aunts and uncles. 

13:00.  Blue sky and fall leaves. 

14:00.  14th birthday wish for my nephew, Max.  Technically he is 14 on October 18th, but he was in town this week, so we celebrated. 

14:30.  Red Velvet cupcake time for yours truly.  It is possible it was red velvet cupcake time on three separate occasions. 

17:00.  Time for my annual flu shot.   Get yours.  Don't do it for you - do it for someone to whom you might expose to the virus, as you might be a carrier even though you might never get ill. 

17:30.   Burned down Blakes Jekyll's Kitchen.  I love how the website says:  "Temporarily Closed for Remodeling".  It's not like they're swapping out the curtains. 

18:15.  Sophie and me playing with a toy mouse.  She became uninterested in about 18 seconds. 

20:00.  ...because you didn't get enough of your Highness he is while we prepared dinner. 

.....and your Baker's Dozen......

21:30.  Since multiple cupcakes during the day weren't enough sweets, I had a pudding cup topped with fresh dairy topping.

My girls have one of those large feeders I never put away. I seemingly fill it up once a week and somehow they keep the weight off. Unlike their mama.

Red velvet cupcakes and cookies are sinfully decadent!

I've been thinking that Lego should come out with bigger (like brick or 1/2 brick sized) Lego's so kids (of all ages) could build forts and club houses and more!

Looks like a nice day. And 1 cupcake is never enough.
