TWiP: Yawn

This Week in Pictures, Week 2, 2021

There’s nothing going on, and so much going on, all at the same time. How that makes any sense, I don’t know. But a nap sounds like a nice idea.

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the little (and big!) moments I have captured all week. Most of these images are posted on Instagram, but others aren’t posted anywhere but here. Some days there may be no photos, and other days there may be multiples. It’s more laid back than the Project 365s of previous years. You can learn more here 🙂

Photos taken with 📷 (Canon EOS 80D) or 📱 (Samsung Galaxy S9).

TWiP Clips

Here’s a short collection of 1.5-second “TWiP Clips” for the week. With only one exception (Wednesday, outpatient procedure for Neil) it was a very quiet week where nothing happened. My one takeaway from these clips is that I wear that junky black sweatshirt way more than someone with a million handknit sweaters ought to 😂


Isn’t curbside pickup a wonderful thing? We’re supposed to be quarantining so Neil isn’t exposed to the virus before his procedure on Wednesday, but I was all out of Cerulean and that would potentially have been weekend ruining, if not for online ordering at The Blue Purl. 💙

Story for Sunday


Thirty-five minutes left in my lunch hour. A piece of delicious chocolate and a new-to-me magazine to enjoy. Happy Monday 💚

A midafternoon cup of coffee is often what I need to spur me into action when I’m having trouble focusing on the work. It hasn’t particularly helped this time.


The blank screen is taunting me. Ever just *not* feel like writing about SSL Security? 😕

Today’s image is a screenshot from a video that was taken accidentally when I neglected to turn off my phone’s camera after filming my “1 second every day” clip. I’m embarrased to tell you how many accidental videos of myself I have… 😆


I like messing with lighting to set a mood. This is my “the workday is done and I wonder what’s for dinner” mood.

Thanks for helping me celebrate the week! If you want to see this stuff as it happens, please feel free to follow me on Instagram ♥
