TWiP: Soupy

This Week in Pictures, Week 5, 2019

It’s been a big week for soup around here. If I wasn’t working all day, and if I felt like making soup when I got home, I could put together some really nice homemade Turkey Curry Meatball Soup, or a nice chicken vegetable soup I got from Chris Carleton way back when. But honestly, I am perfectly happy with half a can of Amy’s Alphabet Soup. This week I had that for two days, some ramen noodles one day, and Trader Joe’s Lentil Soup with Ancient Grains graced my bowl twice, too. You really can’t beat a nice hot cup of soup on a cold, cold day!

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the microblogging I’ve done on Instagram all week. This includes photos I shot for Project 365 and any other extra images I may have posted.

Photos taken with 📷 (Canon EOS 80D) or 📱 (Samsung Galaxy S7).

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


Dug into the back of the cabinet today so I could have my lunch out of Grandma’s soup mug.

The 18yo had an opening shift this morning, so I drove him to work, and then went into my own office for a few hours. It was pitch black when I arrived, but eventually the sun came up.

Periodically, I go in for followups after having had throat surgery a few years ago. Can’t say I’m a big fan of the tiny camera being snaked up my nose, or the feeling that I have to sneeze for the rest of the day, but I do enjoy getting another clean bill of health 🙂

Sometimes I turn all of the stuff on my desk to an angle so that I can watch TV while I edit photos.

Just in case there was any doubt that it’s still winter…

I just can’t eat soup without crackers. Tonight was a very filling bowl of lentil soup with some whole grain Goldfish sprinkled on top. A perfect cold weather meal.
P.S. It’s currently 4°F here. Is it cold where you are?

Twelve pattern repeats down, nine to go! I might be losing steam… #dryadscarf

Nighttime snack: hot tea and almond biscotti.

Ah, Friday. I’m not doing anything I don’t feel like doing tonight 🙂

  1. This is a very cool way to make a blog post! I may try it someday when I get my own camera. I always need to borrow my husband’s IPhone or my daughter’s Nikon (which is way to complicated for me). I blog over at Harvest Lane Cottage. My latest post shows what I’ve been reading and knitting. Please come on by and say hello!

    P.S. Now I’m going to look around your blog some more.

    1. Hi, Laura. Thanks for dropping by! If I didn’t make weekly posts like this, my poor blog would go ignored far too often. I find I am much more likely to post something quickly on Instagram than I am to put together a whole blog post, so a weekly roundup like this makes it so that the social media content doesn’t go to waste, and the blog doesn’t sit here all lonely 🙂

      Thanks for sharing your blog with me – love the hat with the pom-pom. I would really like to knit myself a hat that doesn’t look awful on me 🙂
