My Black Friday Purchase Arrived (330/366)

2012 11 26 IMG_7653w
TIME:  10:13 PM
PLACE:  Kitchen
SUBJECT:  The Walking Dead Season 1 & 2 DVDs

I will admit going to Target on Thanksgiving at 9pm.  They were supposed to have the first season of the Walking Dead on DVD for $8.  I didn’t find it.  (Also, DramaQueen needed Tootsie Rolls to hand out while she was walking in the Santa Parade the next day.)  Since they didn’t have it, I pursued They had season one for $8 and the second season for $16 – so I ordered both.  Free shipping and no crowds.  That’s the way shopping should be all the time.

Second Sun (320/366)

2012-11-15 16-08-35_455w
TIME:  4:08 PM
PLACE:  Work parking lot

As I left work, I noticed an unusual sight in the sky.  The sun and a 2nd incandescence that you can see to the left of the photo.  Don’t know what it is, some say it is due to Chemtrails, others say it is a sign of the Nibiru Cataclysm.  Looks like we are all doomed.

2012 11 09 IMG_7485w
TIME:  6:48 AM
PLACE:  Basement

See what happens when a permanent marker makes its way through the washer and then the dryer with its cap off?  You don’t want to see the clothes that were in the load with the damned thing.  Here’s praying that the Magic Eraser lives up to its name….

Pastasaurus (312/366)

2012 11 07 IMG_7476w
TIME:  5:57 PM
PLACE:  Kitchen
SUBJECT:  Spaghetti spoon

I made pasta with butter tonight.  A simple dish, just thin spaghetti with butter and parmesan cheese.  My paternal grandmother – Ignazia, but better known as Edna or “Grandma C---“ to my brothers and I - would make this for us when we would spend the night.  She always pronounced it “Basta with butter”  It was sooo good.  Sadly, I can never seem to make mine taste like hers.

TIME:  7:08 PM

Jack is all curled up and leaving hair on MonkeyBoy’s black suit.  MB wore it as part of his costume Halloween night and it has been sitting there, all crumped up for the past 5 days.  Dry cleaner, here we come.

Cipro (309/366)

2012 11 04 IMG_7439w
TIME:  11:05 PM
PLACE:  Kitchen
SUBJECT:  Prescription bottle

Usually I love this day – the day I get an extra hour to get things done around the house or take a well-deserved nap.  But today?  Today, I got to spend that extra hour at a medical clinic, so they could verify my self-diagnosed UTI.  I was correct, they prescribed me an antibiotic to clear it up quickly.  What a great day.

TIME:  7:35 AM

We had a great view of the early morning contrails.  About 2 minutes after I took this photo, the automatic shades descended.  Some days, it’s all about the timing.

Good Morning November (306/366)

2012 11 01 IMG_7386w
TIME: 7:26 AM
PLACE:  Highway 55
SUBJECT:  Sunrise

Since my office moved, my drive time has increased – it takes about 30 minutes to drive the 27 miles.  The last 12 miles of my morning commute takes me in a northeast direction.  There are some benefits to this…for example, today, I got to see this gorgeous sunrise.
