We went from 7F degrees at the beginning of the week to 64F degrees at the end! It’s crazy time. (And as I type, the temperature is taking another downward dive.) There was snow, and freezing rain, and just plain rain in there, too. This week’s photos are about the weather, but also about how I spend my time when I’m avoiding that weather.
So, what is This Week in Pictures?
It’s a roundup of the microblogging I’ve done on Instagram all week. This includes photos I shot for Project 365 (the theme for 2018 is mornings: #myyearofmornings2018) and any other extra images I may have posted.

Ready? Cast your mind back to this time last week…
365 📷: #myyearofmornings Jan 6 – Cold outside, toasty inside. Coffee brewing ☕
Instagram 📱: Why is it that the most versatile wardrobe staples are also the most boring to knit? I’m improvising this dark brown top down raglan pullover. I envision that I will wear it constantly. I just have trouble envisioning myself completing it any time soon 😜. Just two sleeves and 8 more inches of body to go…
365 📷: #myyearofmornings Jan 7 – it doesn’t feel like 7°F out here. It’s actually kind of nice!
Instagram 📱: One’s playing #legendofzelda, the other two are watching, and I’m working on my new sweater. This family room togetherness doesn’t happen as much as it used to. Maybe I’ll knit the last few inches on the body, or maybe I’ll just snuggle down into this spot and take a contented nap 😊
365 📱: #myyearofmornings Jan 8 – Hello, Monday. Time to fuel up. ☕ [Taken at work.]
Instagram 📱: So @heatheryarn asked me #widn… I’m working from home this afternoon, since we were sent home in anticipation of bad weather. I’m sitting on the couch with my laptop and now-empty coffee cup, directly under #tackysanta, whose red glow I am still enjoying even though it’s January 🎅
365 📷: #myyearofmornings Jan 9 – I hear it’s expected to be 39°F here today. After the frigid temperatures we’ve been having lately, it’s going to feel like summer!
365 📱: #myyearofmornings Jan 10 – A quick stop before work to grab some delicious @obagel_family bagels for the team. Today marks one year that I’ve been working for the company I’m working for, so why not celebrate? 😊 [Taken in the O Bagel parking lot.]
365 📱: #myyearofmornings Jan 11 – Out the hallway window of my office building, everything is starting to melt. It’s a much more reasonable temperature out there than it has been 😊 [Taken at work.]
Instagram 📷: My sister, sister-in-law, and I have started a new photo project! We’re challenging ourselves with a weekly theme and posting the results over at @threeonatheme. I hope you’ll follow us there, and if you want to, you can play along with the theme, too 😊. This week, it is “warm beverages.” I chose that theme because I had an inspiration photo in mind, and it involved a steaming mug in a dark room backlit by sun streaming in though a single window. It was beautiful, though as you can see, in the end the inspiration sent me in a totally different direction 😁
365 📷: #myyearofmornings Jan 12 – There’s something really nice about moody morning light on a rainy day.
Instagram 📱: Somebody in this office building got all artsy. [Taken at work.]
Instagram 📱: Delicious chicken tacos and great atmosphere for my Friday night 🇲🇽🌯😋 [Taken at Casa Maya in Meyersville, NJ.]
Instagram 📱: I feel like I am over sharing today, but I am so excited that my yarn arrived! I’m actually making myself a pink sweater… Can you believe it? This green girl is going pink 💚💟 (well, not entirely… Those two colors on the left are actually shades of olive green, LOL!). Anyone else joining in the #knitlovewoolkal for the #vintersolsweater? My current brown raglan pullover project is 1.5 sleeves away from completion, but it will have to wait 😁
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 Instagram ♥
