TWiP: Slacker

This Week in Pictures, Week 13, 2020

You might think that with all of the time I am spending at home these days that I would be able to easily carve out some time to post my weekly blog post on time. As it turns out, while I am here all. the. time. I am not actually all that interested in sitting at my desk for so many hours.

Since I am working full time from home now, my personal desk is now my work desk, and I just don’t want to be here on such a constant basis. So, I pretty much didn’t turn the computer on at all on Saturday or Sunday. Or many of the other nights this week. I’m finally doing this now, because I really, really don’t want to end up in a situation where I am posting two TWiPs on one day.

Hope you’re all hanging in there!

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 Saturday last week…


I made some recipe substitutions , and guessed about the matcha additon, and as a result, my matcha scones were not very matcha-ey, nor particularly scone-like. They tasted ok, though ☺

I’ve had this book since October. I’m finally carving out some time to read something other than the articles my phone recommends to me. This is a much more pleasant experience, so far 💚🐑💚

I used to have a two-can-a-day habit, but I broke that years ago. By the time all of this is over, I may have to break it again, LOL

It’s a dark and rainy Monday morning here in NJ. Thought I’d show you where I’m working these days. This is the desk in my bedroom. I change my desktop backgrounds to a scene from the office to remind myself that this spot is for business. At 5:00, I’ll unplug the work laptop and return this space to its usual homey vibe ☺

The 17yo went for a walk in the rain today.

It’s so quiet around here lately.

I’ve been doing a huge decluttering job in my bedroom over the last week or so. Piles and piles of stuff getting cleaned up and sorted. But this tiny mound of jewelry and hair stuff? This is probably going to take me longer to sort through than any of the rest of it, LOL!

I can’t remember the last time I could see the top of this dresser. This is making me very happy.

This has been my lunch hour every day this week. After I finish my actual lunch, I curl up in the sunny spot next to the window with a little bowl of snacks and Vanishing Fleece ♥

I’ve been decluttering every night this week, but it’s Friday and I’m giving myself the night off 😁 So, I’m watching the new Miss Fisher mystery and crocheting a vest 🙂
