TWiP: Happy, Celebratory Things

This Week in Pictures (TWiP) at Polka Dot Cottage
Big week. Between a cousin-in-law’s wedding, a sister-in-law’s new baby, a visit with my parents, three days of rain, a trip to the airport, two trips to the hospital to see aforementioned baby, a lakeside dance for the 6th grader, and an all-day school medieval festival. I’m beat. Oh, and somewhere in there I managed to actually do a little eBook work. Don’t ask me how.

I was not cut out for all of this running around!

It’s been a week full of happy, celebratory things, for which I am very grateful. But these wonderful things have mostly involved a good supply of coming and going, and tonight (as it is Friday evening as I write this) I am looking forward to nothing more than a good mystery on the Roku and to maybe sleep with the window open a tiny bit. If it’s warm enough. It’s been so cold this week! Saturday morning my big exciting plans involve my pajamas, a big mug of hot coffee and Amy Poehler’s book. That will really hit the spot. In fact, I may just read until lunch time if I want to!

Oof. I just re-read that and it sounds a little complainey. Maybe I am griping a wee bit about feeling worn out. But beyond that, it’s been such a nice week. Look through my pictures and you’ll see what I mean 🙂

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the photos I shot for my Project 365 (one image each day for all of 2015), plus some everyday-life snapshots I posted on Instagram during the previous week.
Ready? Cast your mind back to this time last week…


365: 2015 150/365 – It was a nice day for a wedding. Very pretty and so much fun.


365: 2015 151/365 – It rained hard for a while after I took this picture from the front steps of my parents’ house. And now 4 hours later at home, I’m watching another thunder storm come down.


365: 2015 152/365 – First day of June was chilly and rainy.


365: 2015 153/365 – It’s another rainy day, and colder than yesterday. The neighborhood bunny doesn’t seem to care.


365: 2015 154/365 – I got a lot of work done today.


365: 2015 155/365 – What a busy day it was today! Meeting my 3-hours-old niece tonight was definitely a highlight 🙂


365: 2015 156/365 – I had put my camera away and was ready to go home, when she stuck this little foot out as if to say, “take one more picture, Aunt Lisa!”

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 Flickr.

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!
