TWiP: Work. And some play, too.

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the photos I shot for Project 365 (the theme for 2017 is “words”), plus some snapshots I posted on Instagram during the previous week.

Ready? Cast your mind back to this time last week…

Saturday

Instagram πŸ“±: Aidan turns 17 tomorrow. When I asked him what kind of cake he wanted, he jokingly requested I refrain from my usual organic, all-natural non-GMO approach. So I got a red velvet cake mix, the ingredients of which must be approximately 50% artificial coloring. That ought to fit the bill πŸ˜‰

365 πŸ“±: 2017 56/365 – No Smoking – Eamonn and I went to Old Navy, then Starbucks, and then one last stop at the gas station. We were running on fumes. [Taken at the gas station.]

Sunday

365 πŸ“·: 2017 57/365 – Happy 17th Birthday – A decade ago, when Aidan was really into Ultraman, I wrote "Happy 7th Birthday, Ultra Aidan!" on his cake. He’s not quite the fanatic he once was, but I couldn’t resist the Ultra Aidan reference for his 17th birthday today πŸ˜›

Monday

365 πŸ“±: 2017 58/365 – Toffee Pretzel – One of these little chocolate bars is the perfect afternoon snack πŸ™‚ [Taken at work.]

Tuesday

365 πŸ“·: 2017 59/365 – Strike On Box Matches – I think it’s time to light my favorite candle. Like I do almost every night πŸ™‚

Wednesday

365 πŸ“±: 2017 60/365 – rainy day – If I could have, I’d have spent a few hours today curled up in a cozy chair, reading, knitting, or just plain dozing off. [Taken at work.]

Thursday

365 πŸ“±: 2017 61/365 – Notes – I sketched out the "before" of a web page I need to change, so I could scribble all over it with my ideas. [Taken at work.]

Instagram πŸ“±: Getting my ripple on 😊

Friday

365 πŸ“·: 2017 62/365 – Jeopardy – There’s a huge Jeopardy fan in my family. He spent his own money on this shirt and a matching hat.

Thanks for taking a peek at this week’s photos! If you want to see this stuff as it happens, please feel free to follow me on FlickrΒ and/or Instagram.

I may already have plans to blog about some of these things in greater detail over the coming week, but be sure to leave a comment if there’s something in particular you want to know about!
