TWiP: Colorful and Cozy

This Week in Pictures (TWiP) at Polka Dot Cottage

I’m a little surprised how colorful this week’s mosaic is, considering how gray and boring I have felt most of that time. I spent all of Monday laying on the couch, sneezing and coughing, and as much time as possible the surrounding days just taking it easy. I would not have said this was a particular bright or vibrant week, and yet… I guess I surround myself with lots of color and cozy things when I feel under the weather, eh?

At this point my cold has reached the point of being nothing more than a minor annoyance (yay!) and we’ve taken a little trek down to the Washington DC area for the weekend. We don’t have much planned aside from kicking back and enjoying the hotel room while Neil does his thing at Capclave. I did see a Hancocks Fabric on our way here, and I’ve never spotted one of those out in the wild before, so that may be a good Saturday afternoon destination. For me, I mean. I can’t imagine either of my boys calling that a “good” destination πŸ™‚

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the photos I shot with my DSLR for Project 365 (one image each day for all of 2015), plus some phone snapshots I posted on Instagram during the previous week.

Ready? Cast your mind back to this time last week…

Saturday

Instagram: A certain husband is getting impatient for his sweater to be done. He’s working my fingers to the bone today πŸ˜‹

365: 2015 276/365 – Yeah, I’ve spent all day pretty much sitting on my bed, knitting, and watching Netflix. I’ve got a bit of a cold, so I feel justified taking it easy. And oh! I just saw When Harry Met Sally is available on Amazon Prime Video! That movie is a favorite, and I haven’t seen it in ages. I know what I’m doing for the next hour and 36 minutes πŸ™‚

Sunday

365: 2015 277/365 – Happy 5th birthday to my nephew! His party was one of the highlights of a very busy Sunday πŸ™‚ [at my brother-in-law’s house]

Instagram: Why, yes, I did heat up some coffee just so that I’d have somewhere to dunk my pumpkin biscotti… I don’t regret it πŸ˜Šβ˜•

Monday

365: 2015 278/365 – It’s Day 3 of my cold. Traditionally for me, Day 3 is the peak of miserableness in the cold cycle. It’s the day where I’m good for little more than watching TV and blowing my nose. It’s a little nice, in its own way, to have an excuse to take it super easy, although it would be better without all of the sneezing and such :-p

Tuesday

365: 2015 279/365 – Day 4 of my cold. Feeling more human πŸ™‚ I even baked cookies (if putting hunks of pre-made dough onto a cookie sheet and pressing “bake” on the oven can be considered baking…)

Wednesday

365: 2015 280/365 – These little bowls are my favorite thing in my kitchen cabinets right now.

Thursday

Instagram: I want to create high quality repeating digital patterns out of our family #crochet blankets, so I brought them to the brightest spot in the house for a little photo shoot πŸ˜ŠπŸ“· #pdcneutralsquaresblanket #pdcmodfloralblanket #pdclakesideforestblanket #pdcflufysgrannysquareblanket

365: 2015 281/365 – That moment you realize that the one and only picture you took for 365 was blurry, but you didn’t realize it in time because you took it off of the camera the following day and now it’s too late to take another one.

Friday

365: 2015 282/365 – Hellooooooo, Gaithersburg! Let the kicking back commence. [in Maryland]

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 FlickrΒ 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. Hope you’re feeling better! I’m the same – love the excuse to slow down, but could do without the yucky sneezing!!

    1. Feeling much better now, thank you πŸ™‚ Just a little bit of coughing left, but I can live with that!
