Franciscan Focus

Just a simple blog of a Secular Franciscan trying to live with a Franciscan focus.
(And one of these days I'll fix the template and add a Search feature. :-P)

September 12 of 12 

I remembered to bring the camera on 12 September, which means I was able to play along for this month's 12 of 12. (What's 12 of 12?)

So, awaaaay we go:

Hey, get up and feed me!
8:00 a.m.
It's breakfast time! Wake up, Mom! I'm hungry! Mom, you up yet? Helloooo? I'mhungryI'mhungryI'mhungry!

Rainy morning.
8:30 a.m.
Lookin' out through my car's windshield. The day's off to an overcast, drizzly start.

An acorn.
10:00 a.m.
Couldn't think of anything interesting to take a picture of (yeah, like all my other pics were interesting), so here's a snap of an acorn I've placed by my computer monitor at work. I picked it up this past weekend while walking around the grounds of a retreat center. (Was there with my Franciscan brothers and sisters; I'll blog later 'bout the retreat and the acorn.)

Sending a letter.
11:45 a.m.
Getting ready to mail a letter that Husband Mike and I are sending to the Jefferson (Louisiana) Parish District Attorney's office to encourage prosecution of an animal abuse case. (Case details here.)

Swanky new coffee machine at work! Oooooooooh, aaaaaaaaah.
12:00 p.m.
Coffeetime! Our old machine started billowing smoke -- never a good sign -- so we got this brand-spankin' new one! And it's way cool, too -- it even makes mochas! Mmmm ... mochas ...

What? It's only noon?!
12:08 p.m.
Sheesh, is it time to go home yet? :::sigh:::

Reboot, reboot, reboot ...
3:00 p.m.
Installing the latest software build to see what wild and crazy things the developers threw in this time 'round. I so love the constant rebooting required.

Quittin' time!
5:30 p.m.
Woo-hoo! Packing up my oh-so-swanky laptop bag/backpack to head on home.

5:40 p.m.
While walking to my car, I saw this lovely snowy egret in the distance. Was too lazy to get closer, so I used the zoom feature. Eh, ya get the idea.

Caution: Your head asplode.
7:00 p.m.
The replacement battery for my work laptop finally arrived. (My laptop was affected by the recent Dell battery recall hoo-ha; joy.) It's hard to see it here, but the list of cautions that came along includes the following: "Danger of explosion if battery is incorrectly replaced". =8-O If that don't put da fear o' God in ya, I dunno what will.

Must ... be ... careful ...
7:15 p.m.
Getting ready to replace the battery after carefully reading through all the scary warnings and cautions.

Checkin' out the crucifixes.
10:00 p.m.
My batch of Rosary crucifixes arrived the other day (w00t!), so I'm checking the jump rings to make sure they're 1) actually there (sometimes one or two are missing), and 2) properly attached, using pliers to get 'em into shape when needed.

And there you go. My lovely, mundane 12th of September. :-)

I LIKE the picture of all the crucifixes! I'm going to save it on my computer at home if you don't mind! (The cat picture is sweet, too.)
