TWiP: Getting off the Ground

This Week in Pictures, Week 32, 2019

Our vacation has had some difficulty getting off the ground. But the end of this week found us in the air. Phew! As I am writing this from a hotel room with sketchy WiFi, I will just let the pictures do the talking.

P.S. I’m posting from a mobile device, so I’m linking directly to Instagram and Flickr for these images. It’s a lot easier this way. When I’m back at my desk, I’ll re-do this post properly 😃 Done!

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

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

All photos were taken with a 📷 (Canon EOS 80D) or a 📱 (Samsung Galaxy S7).

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


The 19-year-old brought home some nearly expired pastries from work last night, so I get a croissant for breakfast ☺

My second attempt at a shawl to wear to #hugoawards2019 is coming along nicely. I’ll probably be crocheting it in the air and blocking it in an Irish hotel room, but it’s going to be worth it, I think.

This afternoon was a good afternoon ♥

Story for Sunday


In 48 hours I will be on an airplane for the first time in 20 years. Tonight, to prepare for this trip, I am doing the very important work of syncing my Lightroom desktop presets to Lightroom Mobile, so that I may properly edit my photos while I am away. As soon as I am finished with that task, I am going to insert myself in this scene and get some more work done on the shawl that will be coming with me to Ireland.

I started out packing stuff, and ended up seeing if I could sync my various device displays so that my mobile photo edits would be reasonably close to my desktop edits.

Five hours of delays, two gate changes, and finally a cancelled flight with no rebooking. Not a great start to our trip, #AerLingus.

Story for Wednesday


Well, we were supposed to be in Navan today, but we’re still in NJ. We can’t get another flight until tomorrow, so today we hang out with my in-laws at their house and drink their tea. Tomorrow, we all try again to get this vacation off the ground!

Having our flight cancelled has given me extra time to work on this shawl. I’ve had to make some adjustments to fit the amount of yarn I have, but it’s ok. “Making Adjustments” seems to be the theme of this week. Two more colors and then I’ll be done 😊

Story for Thursday


It took several days of trying, but finally, we got up in the air on Friday evening. This was taken somewhere over South Jersey.
