TWiP: Still Summer

Despite the autumnal direction last week’s mosaic took, I’m happy to report that summer is still alive and well. Whew!

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 πŸ“·: 2017 217/365 – We spent the day hanging out with my parents and swimming in their pool. It was a nice day, capped off with a game of Apples to Apples in the little house in the back yard. [Taken at my parents’ house.]


365 πŸ“·: 2017 218/365 – Isn’t half the fun of buying flowers taking their picture? I really fell down on the job with this batch of sunflowers from the farmers market. This is the only one left that doesn’t look like a disaster!


365 πŸ“±: 2017 219/365 – I probably shouldn’t have gone out for that mocha at lunch time. I’m going to get drenched getting back inside! [Taken in the parking lot at work.]

Two more rows left! And these ends…

365 πŸ“±: 2017 220/365 – Our office window has a great view. [Taken at work.]


365 πŸ“·: 2017 221/365 – We went to Ocean Grove in the afternoon, and walked to Asbury Park for the evening. I love these little late-in-the-day trips. I wish we could take them more often! [Taken from the Ocean Grove boardwalk.]

Ocean Grove has pretty fire hydrants.

365 πŸ“±: 2017 222/365 – The great thing about working from home for the day is that I can spend my lunch hour the way I used to before I had a “day job” – winding balls of yarn in front of a British mystery on TV. It’s not everyone’s idea of paradise, but it makes me happy!


365 πŸ“·: 2017 223/365 – Oh, the lure of a new project! Every minute I wasn’t working today, I was thinking about this shawl, and the knitting I would get to do when I got home. I know… I’m such a party animal! Friday night knitting! Woo hoo!!

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!
