TWiP: Starting to Bloom

This Week in Pictures, Week 15, 2021

It’s starting to look like Spring around here 🙂

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).

Here’s a very short video, featuring 1.5-second moments from the week:


The latest in a list of experimental temporary hair colors I am trying: Orange!
The orange basically made all of my grays look reddish, and it looks a lot more natural than the blue and the greens I tried before this 😁 Next up, I think pink.
Hello, Sunday afternoon.


I’ve recently decided I need to pay more attention to my step count (among other things), so I’m not letting a little bit of rain keep me from hitting my goal for the day.
Hopefully this rain will lead to more things blooming this week.


It’s no secret that I know how to kick back and relax (I may be a little too good at it 😜) but even for a veteran chiller like me, some moments come along and surprise me with their blissfulness. Lately the hour between 4:30 and 5:30pm, right after work is over, is really doing it for me. With something low key to do (today I am knitting a #hitchhikershawl and yesterday I read the latest issue of @taprootmag from cover to cover), quiet music, and a fresh cool breeze skipping across the bed… it’s just wonderful. I may forget about the knitting and just take a nap until dinner time 😊

I stepped outside with my zoom lens after dinner tonight. I love the look of my neighbor’s flowering tree in the evening light.
Speaking of things I love, here comes Son number two on the way back from his walk.

I did not realize how much I have missed my local library in the last year, until I picked up a few new reads today. What a little thrill it was to be back! 💙

The little dictator on my wrist has decided I have been seated at my desk for long enough, thankyouverymuch.

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 ♥
