Monday, December 12

This ends my fourth year of taking pictures for Chad Darnell's 12 of 12 Project. I woke up kind of sad this morning, thinking this would be my last 12 of 12.  To be honest, I was also a little bit relieved, as some months it can be difficult to find something interesting to shoot.  This is one of those months.  It's cloudy, rainy and chilly, and I'm not too enthused about getting out.  So, this is an around the house month.

Probably the last rose for a while.  It freeze dried on the
bush.  I'm curious as to how long it will stay there.  10:00 a.m.

Tell me, who would build a skinny cabinet and
then put a shelf in it, totally messing up its intended use?
It had to be a man.  It took a woman (me), a tree saw,
a drill, a hammer and some other tools to get it out.  10:46 a.m.

Success.  11:11 a.m.

Finally able to make good use of the cabinet.  11:21 a.m.

You've seen pictures of Lily and Sassy over the years,
but these are my other dogs.  11:42 a.m.

Fun with milk, food coloring and cooking oil.  11:50 a.m.

More fun, this time with motion blur.  11:50 a.m.

Do you see how dreary it is?  1:09 p.m.

The very best apples I've ever tasted.  Honeycrisp.  Yum.  1:12 p.m.

This handsome fellow is perched high
up on the top of my kitchen cabinets.  1:15 p.m.

I have babied this Gardenia bush for years;
setting it out in the spring and bringing
it in during the winter.  For the past few years, it
has been very stingy with flowers, so I pruned it
way back and gave it plenty of fertilizer.  There
are now dozens of buds on it.  I hope they'll
stay there long enough to bloom.  2:01 p.m.

Christmas 2011
I totally cheated here.  The picture was taken a few years
ago in Garmisch.  If you don't do Christmas, I wish your 
celebrations during this time to be as meaningful to you as
Christmas is to me.  

And that, my friends, is the end of another year in my life.  I just found out the 12 of 12 project will be continuing, albeit on another website.  So, thanks for the memories, Chad, and thanks to the new benefactor.  I hope to see you all again next year.

Sunny, your pictures are amazing! I love the one of the frozen rose! So beautiful!
I've never tried to play with food coloring and milk, but it seems to be a lot of fun! Love the result!

I wish you a merry Christmas!


I was a little stunned by your milk pics, as I thought you were on LSD, or something... Fun pics though!!

I can so relate to the feeling of lacking enthusiasm on certain days, especially since I do a daily thing now on my blog... There are days when I'd rather take the day off!!
I'll keep a watch on you to see what you'll be up to in the future.

And may you enjoy the Holidays to the fullest!!
