TWiP: Home Again

This Week in Pictures, Week 34, 2019

It’s been many years since I took a vacation that was longer than a 5-day weekend. I wasn’t sure I would like being away from home for a full two weeks. As it turns out, it was fine. It was more than fine. I wish we’d had more time, in fact, to explore other areas of Ireland. Maybe next time. (I do anticipate there being a “next time” down the road somewhere.)

I have about a million pictures from this trip, and they may become another blog post in the near future, but for now, you can see the highlights in this TWiP and the previous two, or just look at the Clarkes go to Ireland tag.

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the microblogging I’ve done on Flickr and 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…


I need to block this shawl today, whether I am finished or not. So, I’m crocheting one or two more rows before I go out for the day, and that is it. For better or worse. For the record, I do think it’s quite pretty, but I’ve had to skimp for lack of yarn and time, and so it may not be as big as I want it to be. I’m hoping it grows a lot with blocking!

Still hanging around Dublin. We took the bus and went shopping today.

Story for Saturday


At the Hugo Awards, at “An Irish Worldcon,” as the full sign says.

Story for Sunday


Our last full day in Dublin, and we’re spending it shopping. Perfect!

It’s our last night in Dublin, and I should be packing, but instead I want to show you my finished #blurreshawl – I wore it last night to #hugoawards2019 and I’ve been wearing it with my jeans around town all day. It’s so versatile, and I just love it!

Story for Monday


Sitting at the gate, waiting to fly home. How about some scenes from Sunday night’s #hugolosersparty at the Guinness Storehouse? The lighting in this place was spectacular.

Flying home, landing soon.

Story for Tuesday


I found these fun shoes in my size and my color for €1 in a charity shop in Navan. I guess I need to unpack them (and everything else that is still in my suitcase). Real Life resumes tomorrow.

Don’t mind me. I’m just sitting here editing photos, watching TV, and blowing my diet. It’s called “multitasking.”

I know. I’ve been home from vacation for about a million days already, but I’m still going through my pictures! Here are a few around our Dublin hotel for my Instax Mini project.

Now that I’ve finally finished processing all of my vacation photos, I am free to start the next project: a cabled sweater knit with souvenir yarn ☺
