Photo day 18

There I was, alone in my office. Or so I thought! I looked up, and voila! my new bug helper. Here he is working on some filing.

He is currently scoping out the phone. I can see he will be very useful.

Photo day 17

All the pillows are belong to me!

I shall allow the giant dog a tiny corner of one pillow only.

Photo day 16

Taken from my airplane seat, leaving Philadelphia on the day after the wedding.

Photo day 15

Neither of these are very good images, but they captured some sweet moments of my brother, his wife, and their kids.

Taken in Philadelphia at John's son John's nephew John's son John's wedding. We are all about the easy-to-remember names in my family.

Photo day 14

Squirrely McSquirrelsons, telling me off outside Cobb Hall.

Photo day 13

Isn't this a lovely little plant grouping? In the summer, the leafy plant was a gorgeous bronze color. I neglected to take a picture then, but it's still pretty now.

Photo day 12

At the bank drive-through, a fairly unusual place for me to be.

What should I write about?

So I stumbled across this great new column in the Washington Post called "Medical Mysteries" and I thought, damn, why didn't I think of that? Because it would be such an interesting column to write. Now I am trying to think of great column ideas that no one has had yet.

I know exactly who I'm marrying

Good news on the marriage front:

He's in all the movies!

Photo day 11

I do love the little sparrows. They are sitting on a fence that bounds the hospital's helicopter landing pad.

I think I've done something like 3 pictures in the last 5 or 6 days. Considering how craptastic I feel, I consider that amazing.

Photo day 10

Nothing is quite so cheering to me as a visit from Phoebe. Here she is playing at the local mall on an unspeakably hot September Sunday.

Photo day 9

A row of trees outside a hotel that I pass walking to and from work every day.

Impediment to progress

Well, since this truck is part of the construction equipment for the new Cancer Center, I suppose I shouldn't call it an impediment to progress. It was actually an impediment to MY progress as I walked to work this morning, though.

A rainy day at UVa, from the Cobb Hall porch.

Photo day 6

Let's just pretend it's only been 6 days since I started posting a picture a day, ok? We can see how long it actually takes me to post 365.

"Take me for a walk, I beseech you."

Photo day 5

Today a 3-fer! I wasn't feeling well today and stayed at home. Thus I had to press some local subjects into service for the daily photo.

Here's Rosalie, comin' atcha!

A funny expression of Zoe's:

Zoe has always enjoyed settling in for a good chew on her nylabone:

Photo day 4

There's a beautiful little patch of flowers and grass directly in front of the UVa heating plant. I pass this on the way to and from work at the hospital.

Photo day 3

This tree is outside the hospital, across from the parking garage where a lot of sparrows nest. They seem to like to gather here.


Something makes me think this widget might not be very accurate.

Photo day 2

Imagine my delight upon finding, as I pulled into the Integral Yoga parking lot in order to buy dog food and N-acetyl cysteine, that Breadworks was still open. I can have cookies! I exclaimed in the privacy of my car. Do they not look delicious?

Photo day 1

My mom made this little bear when she was in high school. To me, it's the most valuable item she ever gave me. I think of her every time I see it. It sits on the buffet, sandwiched between my favorite photos of my brothers.

Ah, blogging

As you may have noticed, I've hit a blog bog. I'm not going into the reasons why, but in an effort to jump-start my blogging once again, I've decided to post a picture a day for a year, aka Project 365.

Stay tuned.
