TWiP: Last week of May

I’m still participating in Picture Spring most days, so there are a lot of images again this week. I actually didn’t get around to taking a Project 365 picture one day, but I decided not to sweat it. It’s not like I shot nothing that day. I (or my camera) was just focused elsewhere.

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the photos I shot for Project 365 (the occasional when-I-feel-like-it 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“±: Good morning, Instagram! It’s a 3-day weekend, and I plan to enjoy the heck out of it, starting with #breakfastinbed and the new #makingmagazine. With a theme like “dots” it’s got to be good 😊

365 πŸ“·: 2017 147/365 – The backyard is beginning to resemble one of those documentaries where they show you what the world would look like 10 years after all of the humans have gone.

Instagram πŸ“±: #picturespring #awholenewpointofview For me, spring is all open windows and pretty flowers, but for others, it’s more about the joy of hedge clippers and the power of merciless trimming πŸ˜‚

Sunday

365 πŸ“·: 2017 148/365 – For the holiday weekend, I’ve set my LIFX lights to the “Memorial Day” color scheme. It’s pretty intense…

Instagram πŸ“±: #picturespring #pictureacanvas I have to admit, I spent a long time squatting in my backyard wilderness, trying to trick my phone into taking an out of focus shot. In the end, I settled for creating a frame for the camera to focus on.

Monday

Instagram πŸ“±: #memorialday #veryoldflag [Taken at my parents’ house.]

365 πŸ“·: 2017 149/365 – This cat simply refuses to look up. I can’t stand here all day, so I guess the best I’m going to get is the top of his stubborn little head. [Taken at my parents’ house.]

Tuesday

Instagram πŸ“±: Skipping the coffee and the commute this morning, and working from home. My stomach feels like these peonies look: a little bedraggled 🌸🌸🌸

Instagram πŸ“±: #picturespring #outoftheshadows It’s another cloudy, rainy day in NJ, and I didn’t see a single shadow outside. But I had a #goodmailday today, and the window was nice enough to provide a shadow when I photographed my loot ☺ (I wear my mint green @hillsidestudio2110 earrings so often, I decided I needed a pair in a new color!)

Wednesday

365 πŸ“±: 2017 151/365 – I ordered dinner ahead (like WAY ahead at 3pm) and left myself a note so I didn’t forget to go pick it up on my way home from work. Spoiler alert: I remembered. It was delicious. [Taken at work.]

Instagram πŸ“±: #picturespring #punchypatterns No fabric says spring to me as much as the ones on my #pdcskinnerblendquilt do. It’s a beach blanket, but I put it on my bed during the spring and summer, when it’s off duty ☺

Thursday

Instagram πŸ“±: #picturespring #appreciationday the grass *is* just as green on this side of the fence. 🌱

365 πŸ“±: 2017 152/365 – There are still a few peonies left, so I grabbed a handful for my desk at work, where I can enjoy them all day. [Taken at work.]

Friday

Instagram πŸ“±: Why, yes, I *do* think it’s perfect weather for polka dot sunglasses and an open-window drive through the countryside… Why do you ask? 😎 [Taken in the parking lot at work.]

365 πŸ“±: 2017 153/365 – I feel like this one little picture kinda says a lot about me. All that’s missing is a cup of coffee… [Taken at work.]

Instagram πŸ“±: #picturespring #hiddenmessages Probably nothing too hidden about this message β˜•… We went out tonight to do a little shopping and I grabbed a decaf on the way out. Going to make this last all night. Maybe I’ll break off a piece of a chocolate bar to enjoy with it.

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!
