TWiP: Close to Home

This Week in Pictures, Week 33, 2021

Unlike Week 33s past, the 2021 Week 33 did not involve any beachy day trips, weekend getaways, or intercontinental travel. I barely left the house. On the plus side, I did manage to procure a bouquet of zinnias, which inspired some photo play and kept me plenty entertained.

TWiP: Window Box Chicken

This Week in Pictures, Week 31, 2021

I don’t know how the time manages to pass so quickly, but it always does. It’s August already. I feel like the summer just started, and yet we’re only a few short weeks away from pumpkin latte season. I’m starting to feel a little desperate to make sure I’ve availed myself of enough summer joy while it’s still here.

TWiP: Instant Gratification

This Week in Pictures, Week 30, 2021

It’s been a little over two years since I bought my first instant camera, and in that time, I’ve taken a few photos that I love, and a whole lot of photos that are kind of terrible. I don’t know what keeps me plunking down my hard-earned cash on yet another pack of film, or worse, a whole new camera to love/hate, but here we are. As of this week, I’ve got four instant cameras and two and a half photo albums full of evidence of my misadventures. I do think, though, that I may have finally turned a corner with my latest purchase…

Stubborn streak

Outdoor breakfastYou might say I’m stubborn. I got it in my head last night as I was falling asleep that it would be nice to have an outdoor breakfast this morning, now that we have some new furniture. So when I awoke and realized the rest of the house was still asleep, I seized the chance to have a nice peaceful morning respite on one of my new old chairs.

Just one problem. It rained buckets last night, and the air is still as thick as pea soup out here. It’s great if you’re into jungle climates, but it’s got some drawbacks for the rest of us. For instance, the chair I’m sitting on – still damp. I’m pretty sure I’ll have a nice big wet spot on my jammies when I stand up later. Hasn’t stopped me, though. See? Stubborn.

Hazy morning

Still, there is a nice breeze now and then, and the best part? No bees. I hate those little buggers, and in weather like this they like to stay cozy in their hives. Fine with me!

I hear the rest of the house waking up now, lots of little footsteps. And either it’s raining again, or the trees are just shedding some of the moisture they retained from last night’s storm. Either way, I should wrap this up and avoid getting my laptop soaked.

Oh, but really quickly before I go… this week’s Flickr favorites:
