12 of 12, November 2013 edition

The 12 of 12 challenge was created by Chad Darnell and picked up from a number of random bloggers who then linked back to him and vice versa. Chad stopped doing the 12 of 12 links in December of 2011, but has now passed the torch on to Janet Hughes who hasn’t been keeping up with it. So as always, I’m giving my shout-out to Blobby of Blobby’s Blog as he is the one who inspired me to do it.

My twenty-third “12 of 12”. Today’s 12 is a Tuesday. My Monday.

All pictures were taken with my iPhone 4S.

9:41 AM: I don't know if this counts as a picture, but it's what I see when I look at my phone. AND I really don't want to get out of bed.

11:08 PM: Time for a glass of wine. Arkansas wine. From Mount Bethel Winery. It's called "Big Daddy Tawny Port". And it's tasty.

BONUS: 11:22 PM: Of course, it wouldn't be a "12 of 12" without a picture of one of the kittehs.

  1. Kit-teh looks shocked about your beard trim. Fun photos except the thought of cleaning up wood stove ashes, I have horrid memories of that as a kid.

    I can’t wait until the a Duck Dynasty thing blows over. I shall then be tempted to grow a new beard of personally unexplored proportions.

  2. I continue to be intrigued with your hours (as I write this at 530AM local time). By 10AM half my day is already over!

    Apart from the fiendish temperature, the place looks cozy.

    I am very interested in local wineries – I did not know Arkansas had any!?

    1. I guess I’m more a second-shift person. And it seems that my body is most adjusted to that time. I go to bed naturally at around 2 AM CST, and wake up naturally around 9 AM CST. No alarm clocks. Of course, it is somewhat a challenge since the Husbear is a first-shift person, but luckily we get to see each other during the day at our shops.

      There are several wineries in the Altus area of Arkansas (https://www.google.com/search?q=altus+winery).
