TWiP: Wool, Family, and Selfie Sticks

I visited the NJ Sheep and Fiber Festival again this year. I find it a nice little warmup for Rhinebeck. It’s nowhere near the size of the NYS Sheep and Wool Festival, but it gets me in the proper mood. (Like I need any help in that department!)

I’m still doing Habit, which I mentioned last week, and I’m finding the challenge of having two daily photo projects, well, challenging! It’s worth it, though. By the time this month is over, I will have a concrete idea of how I want to proceed with daily photos in 2018.

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the photos I shot for Project 365 (I seem to have all but abandoned my 2017 theme of “words”), plus some snapshots I posted on Instagram during the previous week. For the month of September, I’m participating in the #habitblog hashtag.

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



365 📷: 2017 252/365 – All of the rows are done! I’ve gotten started on the border, which should be a pretty quick thing, and then it’s just a matter of weaving in the ends. I was doing that part as I went along, but I got lazy at the end, and so I have 3 rows’ worth of ends to deal with. Could be worse!



365 📷: 2017 253/365 – Blowing bubbles with my goddaughter, at her sister’s Christening party ♥ [Taken at my sister-in-law’s house.]



365 📱: 2017 254/365 – In this spot should be a photo of two bags of Fritos that I found hidden under a pile of clean laundry on my bed tonight. Neil got them for me, and hid them where the kids wouldn’t find them and devour them before I had a chance to have any 🙂 (I accidentally deleted the image from my SD card before I could process it. Oops!)



365 📱: 2017 255/365 – One of us likes the bed neatly made. The other couldn’t care less. Guess which one is which.



365 📷: 2017 256/365 – Oh, blech. Apparently slugs like lettuce. Or, I just happened to stumble upon their nest (which is possible, because I nearly stepped on another slug a foot or so away from this spot). I am not fond of slugs…



365 📱: 2017 257/365 – It’s been a long time since we had a proper Aidan photobomb. It was well worth the price of the selfie stick 😉



365 📱: 2017 258/365 – It’s a pretty Friday afternoon. The leaves in the parking lot seem to have jumped the gun on fall a little bit. Almost all of the leaves are already yellow. [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!
