12 of 12 - August 2009

Wow - is it the 12th already? Guess so, since I'm actually blogging.

Well, welcome to my August 12 of 12. And not some cheap imitation the 12 of 12 - this is the real, honest to goodness, original recipe 12 of 12, endorsed by the creator of 12 of 12 himself, the incomparable Chad Darnell. Check out his blog for the rules (which are basically, take 12 photos on the 12th of each month depicting your day and post them on your blog, linking back to the master list at Chad's blog.) It's a world wide phenomenon. I promise.

8:45 a.m. - Starting my day by Eating Mor Chikin. And it is Free Chikin - today they had an offer of a free Chicken Biscuit when you bought a drink and hashbrown. Couldn't pass that up - way better than the hard boiled egg in the fridge.

9:03 a.m. - Yeah - it is a brick wall. It is our historic hanger next to where I park. I just liked the texture and colors.
11:25 a.m. - Love my Skylight, especially on overcast days when I don't bake in the sun.

4:05 p.m. - Headed back from a meeting in the 'good' conference room (it is above ground and has windows!) and saw the photos in the hall. Let's see, I've been there, and there and there and not there and there and not there and there and there.

5:40 p.m. - Spirit of Delta, just outside our office door. Love passing it every day - Never gets old. Makes me feel close to my Dad and reminds me of my aunt Charlsie too. It is nice starting and ending my work day feeling close to two people that I love and admire more than you can imagine.
5:50 p.m. - Woohoo - got a new IKEA catalog in the mail. Can't wait to see this season's Flurn and Barnsligs.

6:20 p.m. - Had to run over to downtown Hapeville (all of a block from my house) to finish up on a photo project I was doing for the Downtown Hapeville Facebook page. Our city has an assortment of Butterfly installations around the city and I've been trying to get photos of them all for the page. Local high school students and citizens painted them, sort of like the Cow Parade that they had in several cities a decade back, and they are really nice. Didn't realize before that this one was done by one of my neighbors.

6:22 p.m. - more Butterflies

6:37 p.m. - and the Star Spangled Butterfly and the Star Spangled Banner in front of our city hall.
6:45 p.m. - and two more butterflies honoring two of our city's oldest establishments - Chapman Drugs and the original Chick-fil-A Dwarf House. Love the crepe myrtles behind them.

6:47 p.m. - I've been driving past that old sign my whole life and until today, I don't think would have ever been able to tell you what it said.

6:55 p.m. - Starting on next project which is the benches around downtown that were painted by the elementary school kids. We like to let kids paint in my town. Apparently.

So, there you go. Hope you enjoyed - See you next month.
