TWiP: Winter is back.

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the photos I shot for Project 365 (the theme for 2017 is “words”), plus some snapshots I posted on Instagram during the previous week.

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



365 📷: 2017 63/365 – Giraffemoji – The kids are out of the house for the night, so, party animals that we are, we’ve got a fire in the fireplace and a pregnant giraffe webcam on the TV.



365 📷: 2017 64/365 – Happy Birthday – We celebrated my Mom and my Aunt’s birthdays with a nice family party ♥ [Taken at my parents’ house.]



365 📱: 2017 65/365 – Thumb tacks – I tried my hand at polymer clay covered thumb tacks this weekend, and I really like them! Today they took their rightful place in my cubicle. [Taken at work.]



365 📱: 2017 66/365 – 90’s Spring – I’m tired of my Winter playlists. Switching over to an mp3 cd comprised of the songs that were on some old mix tapes I made in Spring months between 1993 and 1997. [Taken in the car.]



365 📷: 2017 67/365 – Jingmei – I have been trying to find the perfect duo-tone watch band for my smartwatch since I got it for Christmas. The first one I got was actually only silver. The second one was perfect until I dropped the watch and the band broke. This is the third, and it has taken more than a month to get here by mail. I hope I love it as much as the second one! I have to remove at least four links first, though. I have small wrists.



365 📱: 2017 68/365 – Nokchawon – It’s two Asian words in a row this week! I don’t know if Nokchawon is a brand name, or the name of this type of tea, but it’s really good stuff. It’s buckwheat tea! I didn’t even know that existed until recently. I was skeptical when I tried it, but it’s actually quite good. [Taken at work.]



365 📱: 2017 69/365 – hello, snow – If I’m going to keep doing this post-it on a window thing, I’m going to need to invest in some other colors. The yellow is getting boring. It snowed another 2 inches or so after I took this picture this morning. [Taken at work.]

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 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. Why, yes, it is…winter is definitely showing it’s presence this week. :/ Hopefully after this, spring will come along soon!
    Really fun photos! I just love your beads! They look so springlike… 🙂

    1. Thanks! I have a thing for tiny flowers lately, it seems.
