TWiP: In the Dark

I know the back-and-forth between Daylight Savings Time and Standard Time is an annoyance to some people, but I would really miss the extra daylight at the end of the day if we were to do away with DST. On the other hand, if we did away with ST, and just always prioritized evening daylight over early morning daylight, I could live with that.

I took nearly all of my weekday photos in the dark this week. Welcome to winter, I guess!

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 308/365 – I was going to have a day in my pj’s, but then my 14yo talked me into taking him around town to photograph birds. So here we are. Fully clothed, and hanging out at Hillview Farms, the second stop on our afternoon adventure after the Raptor Trust. [Taken at Hillview Farms in Meyersville, NJ.]



365 📷: 2017 309/365 – Ah, Sunday night. Knitting and Miss Marple 🙂



365 📷: 2017 310/365 – Home from work! My sweetie is making pasta.



365 📷: 2017 311/365 – Spent a lot of time in the rain tonight – driving in it, running around in it from office to car to house to car to restaurant to food store to car to house…



365 📷: 2017 312/365 – It’s 4:39am and Neil’s Uber just pulled out of the driveway. He’s headed to China, and I’m headed back to bed for about 90 minutes.



365 📷: 2017 313/365 – I always like trying the seasonal flavors of these when they are available. This one wasn’t bad, although the pumpkin was better. I think my favorite is probably still fig.



365 📷: 2017 314/365 – Tonight I lit some little candles, put on my Baroque Pandora station, and cleaned the kitchen. Normally I wouldn’t say candlelight and classical music are really a recipe for getting pumped, but it seems to work for me on cold Autumn evenings.

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. I haven’t had a pajama day since I was a teen! My family we pajama people . My husband does not get that unless your sick.,Nothing better then a pj day. You afghan pattern is on my list baby!

  2. Sweater looks fun!! Your pattern? My new daughter in law (before she was) came with our son to visit one holiday with minimal makeup and her fuzzy warm pjs on. She was always dressed to the hilt in heels etc. We knew she accepted us and our home and we DEFINITELY accepted her. Introduced new tradition to our large family of 4 kids and grandchildren.
