TWiP: Too Soon to Look Like Fall

Is it me, or is this week’s mosaic very autumnal? Between the cozy blanket and the warm colors, you’d think this was the first week of October, instead of the first week of August. I need to step up my Summer game… I think it’s time to schedule a day trip to the beach!

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the photos I shot for Project 365 (the occasional when-I-feel-like-it 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 210/365 – I am on fire with this afghan today! I watched a ton of British TV and finished 2 entire rows. Now I have 3 rows and a border left! Or maybe 5 rows… I thought of another way to do it that might be nicer, but it means extra rows.



365 : 2017 211/365 – Tiring day. We helped my brother and sister-in-law move into their new apartment. I think it’s an early bedtime for me tonight. [Taken at my brother and sister-in-law’s new apartment.]



365 : 2017 212/365 – Well, look who dropped in to say hello.



365 : 2017 213/365 – Just your typical Tuesday evening, hanging out after dinner with my weird son. (That doesn’t narrow it down at all, does it? I mean the older weird one, LOL!)



365 : 2017 214/365 – I see things all the time when I’m driving, and I think, I should pull over and take a picture of that, but then I don’t do it. Today I did it. This sign is kind of weird. [Taken in Bedminster, NJ.]



365 : 2017 215/365 – Lately the clouds have been so beautiful in the early evenings when I’m driving home.



365 : 2017 216/365 – So this is where I am right now with this blanket: 5 rows of 10 squares are done, connected, and ends are woven in. I either have 3 more rows or 5 more, depending on how the next row turns out. This weekend’s goal is to at least finish up all of the blue squircle centers. 2 down, 18 (or 28, depending) to go!

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!
