The End of the World as We Know It

As hard as it is to believe, this is the last day of February 2012. That means the last of the #29in29 challenge.

How sad.

It's really been fun (and sometimes painful) stretching the limits of creativity to do a post a day, with pictures, for 29 days straight. It was supposed to be motorcycle-related. But the coolest thing about the challenge was that there really were no rules. Sometimes, my images were not exactly exciting. Other times, I succeeded in finding something cool to share.

Today, on the last day, I am feeling completely uninspired. I just finished reading all of the other participants' final posts, too. (See those links at the end of this post? Have you visited them yet?)

Alas, it's the last day, so I have to post something. If it weren't cold and rainy, I'd grab the camera and take the dogs for a walk. Since it is cold and rainy, you get to see this...

My dogs taking advantage of yesterday's sun.

Cool bug candle, purchased at Cracker Barrel. (They sell some weird stuff.)

Way to go out with a bang, eh?

Oh, wait. Did you see today's Google doodle? Or whatever they call those things.

I have no idea who Gioachino Rossini is, but you know I love the image, right?


That's a snippet from Fuzzy's blog header. She was the inspiration for this whole #29in29 thing. She's a very cool chick with an awesome blog that really isn't very girlie at all. Aside from all the pink. Really. Guys love her blog, too. She and her soon-to-be-hubby are motorcycle fanatics, and Fuzzy always has great pics and cool tales to share.

Go check it out. I dare you.

And, when you are finished, check out the links below, too. I have met some very cool folks through this #29in29 challenge.

Thanks, Fuzzy. I look forward to the next adventure!

I am glad you had some sunshine yesterday.

We woke to snowy drizzle this morning. I think your pics for the day show creativity. Cool that the Google Doodle was froggy/toady. I hadn't noticed it yet.

I've really enjoyed seeing all of your 29 in 29 posts and look forward to reading more.

Loved reading your posts and seeing your pics. Glad you got out into the sunshine yesterday!

Well done - 29 in 29. Love the dogs lounging in the sun, that's exactly what I'd love to be doing if it weren't snowing.

Trob, Dar, and VStar Lady, thanks for visiting and looking and commenting. It always makes the effort feel more worthwhile when you know you have an audience. That goes for all of you other folks who visited, commented, etc. Thanks a bunch!

Our sunshine was short-lived. Today has been rain, rain, and more rain. The dogs got to enjoy it yesterday, but I didn't. I snapped that pic with my phone when I went to call them in after a potty break.

It was fun, wasn't it? And especially challenging this time of the year... I for once was glad that the month had only 29 days ;-)
