And that’s how Cold Stone went out of business

Yup.  Another update on this year’s Project 365.  Here we go….

Day 230 (2012-08-17) ~  While out shopping with my hubby, Scope, the Blue Angels flew by and I managed to grab a quick shot of them before they rocketed out of sight.  I used a poster filter on this pic because I loved how it made the icky puke-yellow building in the shot a nice shade of Smurf-blue just like the sky.  (Oh.  And this is a slight cheat because I took this pic on the 18th, not the 17th.  Whoopsie!)

Day 231 (2012-08-18)
~  We had dinner at Pei Wei and I loved the MASSIVE red lights they had hanging over the tables.

Day 232 (2012-08-19)
~  I found grapes growing in the local community garden.  (Sorry.  Another slight cheat on this shot too.  It was taken on the 20th, not the 19th.  My days got a bit jumbled up after the trip to Seattle.  Oy!)

Day 233 (2012-08-20) ~  Cute.  Another find in the community garden at the local elementary school.  I'm not sure if it's supposed to be a sunflower or the sun, but I like it anyway.

Day 234 (2012-08-21) ~   Can you believe that I actually know two people with the first name “Aspen”?  TWO!  Just watch, Aspen will be the new Jennifer one day, you’ll see.  But anyway….  I had to giggle when I saw “Aspen” spray-painted across a bench near my house.

Day 235 (2012-08-22) ~  Hey, looky!  I found a Smurf house!

Day 236 (2012-08-23) ~  Any guesses what it is?

Day 237 (2012-08-24) ~  The view out of my living room window.

Day 238 (2012-08-25) ~  Wednesday and I made waffles to celebrate the happy purchase of some tickets for an upcoming vacation.  Any guesses where we’ll be going?!….   (WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!)

Day 239 (2012-08-26) ~  Just a rainy day.

Day 240 (2012-08-27) ~  Out on a walk, I found this gorgeous clematis climbing all over an iron gate.  (Yeah, oops on this shot too.  It's from the 28th, not the 27th.  *sigh*)

Day 241 (2012-08-28) ~  Just a shot from one of my eBay sales because I ran out of time on the 28th.

Day 242 (2012-08-29) ~  I saw these sunny, happy fellas while walking from the train station.

Day 243 (2012-08-30) ~  So.  Wednesday and I weren’t in Chicago for five weeks.... and our neighborhood Cold Stone closed down.  Coincidence?  I think not.

Day 244 (2012-08-31) ~  Well, it appears that the only picture I took on August 31st was this feeble one of my daughter's SIMS 3 game when the Grim Reaper killed off the character she modeled after herself.  Pitiful, I know.

Day 245 (2012-09-01) ~  Lacking ideas today, I just decided to illuminate a rug with an LED flashlight and be done with it.  Eh.

Day 246 (2012-09-02) ~  So, the remnants of Hurricane Isaac blew through town the first two days in September and it was really not that noticeable, frankly;  a little mist in the air and a slight gust of wind or two.  Eh.  No biggie.  However, there MUST have been a big gust of wind that I missed somewhere along the line, because all of a sudden this pinwheel came out of nowhere and landed on our deck.  Have I mentioned that we live on the third floor?!  Isaac REALLY wanted us to have that pinwheel.  Clearly.

Man, we are just burning through these things this week!  Hopefully we will be all caught up soon.

It was so funny for that pinwheel to drop by for a visit.
