TWiP: This and That

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 105/365 – File Online – At Starbucks, having breakfast, and doing the bare minimum not to get audited. [Taken at Starbucks.]



365 : 2017 106/365 – Happy Easter – Uncle Neil and Kailey, picking up all of the eggs before it rains! [Taken at my in-laws’ house.]



365 : 2017 107/365 – No Parking Fire Zone – The office building where I work is surrounded by pretty flowering trees, so I brought my camera to work with me and spent part of my lunch hour taking photos. They have purple trees here! I find the purple ones so exotic… [Taken at work.]



365 : 2017 108/365 – More Straws – When I am at work, and I think of something I need to do at home, or bring in the next day, I slap a post-it- note on my tablet. It’s very effective, because I always spend time on my tablet in the evenings, so I always see the notes.



365 : 2017 109/365 – Worl Language Honor Society Induction – Aidan was inducted into the National Spanish Honor Society tonight [Taken at Aidan’s school.]



365 : 2017 110/365 – Pike Place – I’m obeying that note on my tablet from a few days ago, and bringing in some decaf that isn’t flavored so strongly with caramel that it contaminates the next two cups of regular coffee that are made after it…
