TWiP: Mug Rut

I’m holding a coffee mug in four out of 13 images this week. I think it’s time to consider other poses…

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

Itโ€™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…


Instagram ๐Ÿ“ท: September 30 – What a great thing it is to have a private back yard, where nobody thinks you’re weird when you bring a couple of shawls and what’s left of your morning coffee outside for a little photo shoot. #habitblog / I’ve really enjoyed playing along with #habitblog this month. Thank you, @mollybalint @tara.shannon and @shiningegg for the open invitation ๐Ÿ’š

365 ๐Ÿ“ท: 2017 273/365 – They’re teenagers and still making up weird holidays. โ™ฅ


Instagram ๐Ÿ“ฑ: Good morning, October!

365 ๐Ÿ“ท: 2017 274/365 – File this under “weird stuff I find in the grass.”


365 ๐Ÿ“ท: 2017 275/365 – It’s another lovely morning for some coffee on the front steps. I’ll be sad when it gets too cold to do this.

Instagram ๐Ÿ“ฑ: Working from home is a little bit complicated, technology-wise, but so much more cozy ๐Ÿ’“


Instagram ๐Ÿ“ฑ: This shawl of mine is nearly finished… It needs a name! Any ideas? I’ll just be over here sipping candy cane green tea and clicking my needles, if you think of anything ๐Ÿ’š. BTW, I am endlessly amused by the power of cropping. I’m going to put the uncropped version of this photo in my story, and you can see how this little oasis of calm actually exists on top of a jumble of handmade quilts and clean laundry ๐Ÿ˜œ

Instagram Story ๐Ÿ“ฑ: Instagram Stories disappear after 24 hours, but I saved this one for my blog, because it would be mean to post a “see my story” teaser, and then not let you see!

365 ๐Ÿ“ท: 2017 276/365 – Given what I found floating in the last batch of iced coffee that had been sitting in the fridge for far too long, I decided this batch needed a “use by” date.


365 ๐Ÿ“ฑ: 2017 276/365 – I took a drive at lunch time today and found a road I’ve never been on before. [Taken somewhere in Bernards Twp, NJ.]

Instagram ๐Ÿ“ฑ: Liquid lunch? Don’t mind if I do… [Taken at work in the parking lot.]


365 ๐Ÿ“ฑ: 2017 278/365 – I tripped on my way out the door this morning, and planted myself right on the pavement. I ended up with a few scraped-up knuckles and a couple of other scratches, but nothing too bad. I’m still not sure what I tripped over, but I’m thinking it was just my own feet. It sounds like something I might do… [Taken at work.]

Instagram ๐Ÿ“ฑ: Back to school night. First year in high school for one kid, last year for the other ๐Ÿ˜ฎ [Taken at school.]


365 ๐Ÿ“ท: 2017 279/365 – Guys! I got a new camera today! Mom and Dad came to visit, and we took a short trip to the Raptor Trust to see some birds and take a few photos. It was a nice day. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have some camera settings to figure out! [Taken at The Raptor Trust, in Millington, NJ.]

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 Flickrย 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!

  1. How about Shamrock or Irish Fields for the name of the new shawl. It’s beautiful, whatever you name it.

    1. Nice suggestions! Thanks for the compliment. I will probably be finished with it this weekend!

  2. Your shawl made me think of a meadow therefore I shall suggest Meadow for your shawl’s name! ๐Ÿ™‚ Love the weird stuff you find around your house. Your kids sound like so much fun.

    1. Yes, they are very entertaining! Thanks for the suggestion… all of that green is definitely meadowy!
