12 of 12 - January 2009

Sorry - I'm a little bit late on this month's 12 of 12. What is 12 of 12 you ask? It is a photo assignment created by the wonderful Chad (who needs your good thoughts and prayers right now) where you post 12 photos from your day on the 12th. Mine are usually pretty mundane and lame. Want to see some better ones? Go here and see Helen's. Her photos are awesome (although, I think that living in England gives her an unfair advantage in finding better subject matter.)

I didn't really think about it being the 12th until I was already at work, so I forgot my camera and had to use the camera in my new phone. Since I can barely make a call with the dang thing, it took some time to get the hang of the camera, so this month's 12 of 12 my be a little shaky.

So, away we go.

8:40 am -I still don't have a 2009 calendar, and as I mentioned, it took me a while to realize that it was the 12th and not the 15th. I was starting to get a little upset that my paycheck wasn't direct deposited yet.

8:41 am - Two calendars in my office, and neither one of them is right.

12:45 pm - I wasn't really able to get everything done over the weekend, so when my boss called in sick and our afternoon meeting was cancelled, I asked if I could take a half-day. It was actually sort of sunny and warm when I left. Above are the new townhomes they are building a block down from my building. They look pretty nice, I just hope they sell as we have a few too many empty condos in the area.

1:35 pm - I stopped by my neighbor Lauren's to pick up a workbook for a program we are doing at church. She was kind enough to pick one up for me when I missed church on Sunday because I was feeling sick. Had a nice little visit with her, and then back on my way to do some errands.

1:40 p.m. - Stopped by Chapman's Drug store to pick up some prescriptions. Girl needs her Prozac, you know? Chapman's has been a Hapeville establishment for over 80 years, and they have a neat collection of old medication bottles and other memorabilia.

2:00 pm - After Chapman's, I drove through and picked up a Diet Coke at the Original Chick-fil-a Dwarf House, and other Hapeville landmark.

2:20 pm - then down to Costco (woohoo) for some gas.

2:30 pm - then to Barnes & Noble to check out the leftover calendar selection.

2:35 pm - which can be sort of random. But, they were also 75% off, so beggars can't be choosers. I ended up with a calendar of National Park WPA posters from the 1930s & 40s. They were actually very pretty and I think after the year is over, I may frame one for my home office area as the colors would work great in a couple of my rooms.

3:20 pm - On my way back home, passed the Hapeville First Baptist Church. Seems like I often have a church in my 12 of 12.
3:25 pm - and then finally making it home. I was so tired when I got home that I ended up taking a nap that lasted until after midnight. It was quite a nap.

So, there you have it - another exciting day in the life of Joni.
