Project 365 #30 - Bible Park Walk

Well, here it is - the last day of November. Can't believe tomorrow starts the last month of 2014. From here on out, Project365 gets tougher because I have to follow my chart to figure out which photo # I'm posting each day. First world problem, I know.

Anyway, I broke down and bought new shoes yesterday. I've been putting it off because I hate shoe shopping and for some reason, stores don't seem to carry 7.5 men's wide shoes. Also, they closed the Famous Footwear location on Iliff/Peoria that I used to prefer. They were running a Buy 1/Get 1 + 20% off if you have the app promotion and of course I could only find one pair. Turns out they'll now ship you a 2nd pair if they don't have them in stock. Yay! Now, once the 2nd pair gets here, I'll have a backup and won't have to go shoe shopping for a long time.

One of the reasons I wanted new shoes is I haven't been on long walks with Marcus & Mr. T since well before I got sick back in August. I promised them that I would take a walk around Bible Park once I got new shoes, so that's what we did today. Marcus was in heaven since it was below 20°F and the park was almost empty.

Project 365 #29 - T’s Tryptophan Coma

Marcus put some leftover turkey and mashed potatoes in Mr. T's food this evening. I think he's in a Tryptophan coma - he's been like this for quite a while. He's also groaning and belching. I think the poor guy ate too much too fast.

Project 365 #27 - Thanksgiving 2014

We weren't going to cook a Thanksgiving dinner this year since we weren't going up to Homestead North. First we were going to go out to eat, but we forgot to make reservations. Next, we were going to get a pre-cooked dinner from Whole Foods, but I couldn't get Marcus to make a decision about which one to get until the day after they stopped taking orders. I ended up cooking a dinner, anyway, which was a bit of a pain as all of my stuff is up in South Dakota and the kitchen in the condo is tiny. I think I managed pretty well. The only things I couldn't make were the cheesecake and my shrimp stuffing. I broke down and bought a pre-made pumpkin pie, too.


BONUS: Since I love this picture so, here's last year's Thanksgiving picture taken at Homestead North:

Project 365 #24 - T Pouting

I'm in bed trying to relax and watch TV when I'm assaulted by canine gas. I look over and scold T and this is the look I got back.

I have no idea where Marcus is going to sleep when he finally drags himself to bed.

Project 365 #16 - Deer in Snow

Mr. T wanted so badly to chase the deer across the street. Sadly, we were packing the car to head back to Homestead South, so I couldn't oblige him.

Project 365 #14 - Mr. T Chasing Deer in Keystone

Dang them for being so fast and not being visible in my photo, but Mr. T was trying to chase some deer in Keystone early this afternoon when we walked down to get the mail. He gets frustrated that he's always tethered to a human.

Project 365 #10 - Cold Night

When I went to work this morning, the temp was around 65°F - by the time I got home and took the dog out for his walk, it was 16°F, according to the display on the hotel across the highway. Mr. T probably didn't need it, but I broke out his coat.

Project 365 #9 - Cornered Rabbit

Marcus was walking Mr. T around the parking lot at the Bed, Bath & Beyond on Chambers/Parker while I went inside to get a heated mattress pad for Homestead North. When I came out, I heard the most horrible dog screeching and knew it was Mr. T. I got over to where they were and they had a rabbit cornered in a drainage thing. It's hard to tell, but that's a bunny behind all those leaves.
