Who watches us while we watch Chuck?

Aaaaaaaand now for another update on this year’s Project 365….

Day 40 (2012-02-09) ~ Back in his single days, my hubba hubba hubby, Scope, had several little gargoyles sitting on shelves around his home. The story goes that his friends and family kept telling him that whenever he finally met The One and brought her home to stay, the first thing she would do would be to throw out all the ugly gargoyles because—as rumor had it—chicks don't dig that sort of thing. Well, ha! I love them. Especially this little fella who sits right by our TV, grinning at us while we watch Chuck and American Idol. (Of course, I own a life size Dobby the House Elf statue, so what the heck do I know about appropriate house decor?!)

Day 41 (2012-02-10) ~ It started snowing these odd little pellet-like snowflakes in the afternoon, so I thought I would re-shoot the deck picture from Day 39 just to show the snowflakes off.

Day 42 (2012-02-11) ~ Every year after Christmas when Wednesday was little, we used to take our gingerbread houses into the woods and leave them there for "the fairies" to live in. Now that she is older and we live in the city, we take our gingerbread houses to the park for the squirrels to snack on. The squirrels are a riot every time we do this! They run and leap all over the place, half curious about the delicious smelling little houses and half scared of getting too close. Soooo funny. We left the houses in the park this morning and while the other squirrels zipped here and there in nervous excitement, this little fella came right up to me and even fearlessly nudged my shoe, looking at me expectantly, as if asking what else we brought for him!

Day 43 (2012-02-12) ~ We were running errands and tackling life a good chunk of the day and I completely forgot about taking a picture. Oops. Just as the sun was about to set—*BING!*—I remembered it and immediately grabbed my camera and took a close up shot of a blown glass ball that is hanging in my window. For being shot in a hurry in rapidly fading light, I think it actually turned out surprisingly well. In a way, it kind of reminds me of the way a swimming pool floor looks distorted through water.

Day 44 (2012-02-13) ~ My Strawberry Shortcake Dolls were my favorite toys when I was a kid, and my most favorite one was Blueberry Muffin. I had dozens of these cute scented dolls and my whole room smelled like a bakery. Mmmmmmmmmm.

Day 45 (2012-02-14) ~ Happy Valentine’s Day!

Okay, so we are 12% done with the project now! There’s more to come soon.

That squirrel was SOOOOOO cute! He wasn't remotely shy.

Dude, I don't know about the set up of the squirrel photo, but that squirrel looked about the size of Oprah Winfrey! Do you have giant humanoid squirrels in Chicago? Crazy!

I love your photos. I need to really start the 365 again. I enjoyed it a lot last time and gave up half way through when my camera died.

PS The gargoyle is awesome!

See Cora? That squirrel is MASSIVE-looking! lol!

Cora said...

Scope: I kept feeling the urge to reach out and pet him like a dog. Probably a good thing I didn't. That might have been crossing a line.

Veg: Our squirrels are well fed. Clearly. :-) I'm liking the 365 Project MUCH more this time around!!

So Cal Gal: Maybe he wasn't actually a squirrel! I dunno, when I look at the pic he kinda reminds me of an Ewok or something.

I agree with everyone else about the furry rodent, he is a NFL lineman!

And for Kathy and I, Chuck really went downhill this season.

Check out my site for a caption that just inspired me. I can't help it. I caption because I love.
