12 on the 12th

On the 12th day of each month, you take 12 pictures from your day and post them. Well, you are really supposed to scrap them, but I'm not much of a scrapbooker, so I'm going to scrap them by posting them. So here are my pics for August.This is an old standby breakfast of mine. Coffee and a peanut butter sandwich made with low-fat peanut butter. This breakfast seems to keep me fulfilled until lunch. Here is where I work. I've been there for 13 years now and I love it. It's only 1.5 miles from my front door to work. That saves me a ton of money on gas. Woo hoo!Here's my messy desk at work. I think I was looking up sewer availability for a customer. I know, exciting as all hell. Hey, it pays the bills.I went home for lunch because I forgot something I needed to take to work, so I took a few pics and watched a little tv. Remember I only live 1.5 miles from work, so it's a quick trip home. I watched Jon and Kate plus 8. I love that show. It's on Discovery Health channel.Here's a picture of part of the fountain I got on Craigslist. It was only $60. This is the bottom bowl and it's about 52" across and about 6" deep. I have to get the paint off the tiles, though. Can you believe someone painted over those gorgeous tiles? Yeah, I know!And here is Gizmo, chillin' in the shade. He loves it when I go home for lunch because he knows he can go outside. He is an indoor kitty, but he can go outside if supervised. He mostly likes to sit on the bbq island or snooze in the shade. Sometimes he makes a bee-line for the front driveway and I have to make him go inside. He looks so sad then.This is Cheeto, scratching his bugs or something. I put Advantage on these cats but they insist on rolling around in the dirt. Whatever.On the way back to work, I stopped at Carl's Jr. and got a Famous burger, no cheese. Yuck, I hate that processed cheese food. I don't particularly like fast food burgers, but at least CJ meat looks like meat, unlike MickyD's. Eww. In the employee dining room, we have a table set up for puzzles. There is a small group of us that like to do puzzles on our breaks. We do a puzzle about every 10 days or so, depending on the puzzle. We get our puzzles at the used book store in Escondido. We get them for about 50 cents a piece after you count the trade-in value. It passes the time and promotes comeraderie. One of the jobs of the engineering department is to take down the flags and lock the front gate every day. This week was my week, so after I took down the flags and locked the front gate, I took a picture. See that hill in the background? I live on the bottom of that hill to the right. You can't see my house, so stop looking. This is a picture of a swallow's nest at the roofline of the bldg at work. There are three of them up there. Pretty neat, huh? So that was my day. Nothing much happened the rest of the evening. Set your calendar to do your own 12 on the 12th. It'll be fun to see everyone's days. EDITED: I'm still laughing. You guys make me laugh with your posts. Ok, ok, I'm going to scrap these photos and then I'll post them AS A SCRAPBOOK PAGE! LOL

Great photos, though posting them instead of scrapping them is sort of like cheating.

But since you shared them, I'll let you off this time.

Nice to see your cats plus where you live, work, play, and puzzle.

Have you gotten the paint off the tiles yet? Will you post the "after" shot?
