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 put my Brita pitcher in the dishwasher, even though you are not supposed to do that, and it came out a teeny tiny bit warped. The red basin part changed shape just enough that the lid no longer snaps into it.

This was my solution. I used masking tape, scrap polymer clay, and a Sharpie.


If we’re being honest, before that solution came to me, I first tried to force the pieces together, got frustrated, had a mini tantrum, and threw the lid across the kitchen. But that might have been the Peppermint Patty I had for breakfast talking. (Breakfast of champions. Great brain food.)

Eventually a cooler head prevailed. And it even drew pretty flowers.

Hey, I don’t expect to be back here before Christmas, so let me wish those of you who celebrate: Merry Christmas!!

I’ve got about half of my gifts wrapped so far. That sounds about normal for me…

See you in a few days 🙂
