12 of 12

So I'm doing my 62nd 12 of 12

Normally it is 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 and picked up from, what I can tell, any number of random bloggers who then link back to him and vice versa. Chad is no longer doing this, nor is successor coordinating the linking of other 12 of 12'ers anymore. Now it's just Erik (and sometimes Jim) and myself - that I know of. 

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


06:43. Petey let me sleep in until 6:41. 
But I had to pee and put on my Band-It for the morning, before letting him out. I think the strap is helping with my elbow malady. 

There is one kitty kat on the floor beyond my arm. 

07:05. Usually I get 710's coffee ready for him the night before, but I didn't. So I got it going early in the morn. Sunday means the NPR mug. It has the call letters of every NPR station. Well, at least as of 2000, when I bought the mug for he. 

 10:40. Waiting to be let into community yoga. 

10:50. Suburban Auschwitz. 
Leave your shoes when you enter. 

 12:10. Zen and Black tea - ice, no water, no sugar.  Oh - and rice crispy treat. 

12:30. A twofer. I'm counting it as one. David took the left, I took the right. 
Apple Watch try on. 

Two dozen decent to good looking male Apple workers on duty, but I got Zach. {curses}
No - I did not order one. 

13:05. Liberry items on hold for me; went to pick-up. 

13:40. Wendy's Ghost Fries. 

I'm not a proud man - at least when it comes to my food choices. Potatoes with cheese-like food product on top, topped with jalapeño?  Who am I to say 'no'?

They were ok, but I wouldn't do it again.

13:30. Another twofer: I swept out the garage.

To you, it might not look that different, but trust me, there is a lot of gunk that is gone. I still need to wash it down, but had to lose the dirt first, so that it didn't become mud.

14:15 Signs of spring.

There are some buds on the trees too. And we picked up about 10lbs of discarded trash off the side of our hill. Oddly, only one car part.


18:30. I know we're late and taking it to the deadline - but finishing our local and state taxes.
Much harder to do than Federal. With the Federal, we are married, with the the other two, we are not. ..but they're all done. 


19:45. What to do for dinner? What to do for dinner? 

It was leftovers. Rigatoni, to be specific. 


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


21:35.  No posing from Sophie, but Mr. Pete is always around for a sad-eyed picture. 
He's so handsome.

A nice glimpse into a day in the life of a blogger, I try to remember to do 12 on 12.

I'm trying to get the "Zen-ness" of the day mixed in with the Ghost fries.
Is that the Yin and the Yum?

And I will add that I loved being able to file state and federal taxes this year as mister and Mister.
