TWiP: Hello, June

I’ll keep it brief today. After I made the TWiP mosaic this morning, I had an idea for a cover for my next playlist, and I just had to spend the next hour in Photoshop bringing that idea to life! You know how it is πŸ™‚

So, now I’ve been sitting in this chair for far too long, and I just don’t have the energy to come up with a long, rambling preamble to this week’s images. Also, I’m about 8 minutes away from missing my normal posting schedule for this, so I’m just going to go ahead and copy all of the week’s images into the post and call it a day!

BTW, keep an eye out for that new playlist I mentioned. I’ll probably be ready to publish it on 8tracks today or tomorrow, and then shortly after that I’ll post about it here.

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“±: Birthday party today for my favorite goddaughter πŸ’Ÿ [Taken at my sister-in-law’s house.]

365 πŸ“·: 2017 154/365 – "More bubbles!" – My niece at her birthday party. [Taken at my sister-in-law’s house.]

Instagram πŸ“±: #picturespring #flirtingwithflare I was about to go outside and shoot into the sun, but I changed my mind when I noticed the sun had come to me. I love the dappled early evening light in my bedroom at this time of year.

Sunday

Instagram πŸ“±: Good morning, Instagram!

Instagram πŸ“±: So, I decided I need a little paper garland to decorate my cubicle. I think this will be nice 😊

365 πŸ“·: 2017 155/365 – I’m working on a big redesign of my website, and I’m having trouble figuring out what to do about the banner image. I spent a lot of time today auditioning ideas. So far, I’m not liking much.

Monday

Instagram πŸ“±: #picturespring #burstofcolor I thought I’d sit in the courtyard during my lunch hour. Apparently people only want to be out here when it’s sunny, because I have the whole place to myself on this overcast day! ☁ [Taken at work.]

365 πŸ“±: 2017 156/365 – The latest addition to my humble little cubicle: tiny paper bunting! I’m resisting the temptation to string this around the entire cube. For now, it’s just on one side, in the two little panels shown here. [Taken at work.]

Tuesday

365 πŸ“·: 2017 157/365 – Oh, it was an expensive day today. My car got new brakes and new tires.

Instagram πŸ“±: #picturespring #projectminded If I ever manage to finish this WIP, I am going to have a really annoying pile of ends to weave in πŸ˜‰

Wednesday

Instagram πŸ“±: #picturespring #loveisintheair This pair would have been a lot happier-looking a week ago. Guess as far as my yard is concerned, peony season is well and truly over πŸ˜•

365 πŸ“·: 2017 158/365 – My younger son is going to Washington, DC with his class tomorrow and Friday. I kind of hope he takes Bernie with him.

Thursday

Instagram πŸ“±: #picturespring #springboard Well, I got up at the crack of dawn and left the 14yo on a bus bound for DC with his classmates. I hope he has fun, and I hope I don’t fret too much πŸ˜‰. I took myself out for coffee after I dropped him off, and I took this photo for today’s prompt, which wants you to use someone else’s work for inspiration. I took some cues from the fun #candyminimal style made popular by @mattcrump. [Taken at Starbucks.]

365 πŸ“±: 2017 159/365 – I’ve been at my job for about five months. I think it’s time for a couple of cubicle plants. I figure these re a good choice, if I don’t want to kill the poor things. [Taken at work.]

Friday

Instagram πŸ“±: #picturespring #makeawish I found the single remaining dandelion in our yard.

365 πŸ“·: 2017 160/365 – Here come the 8th-graders! [Taken at Eamonn’s school.]

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!
