TWiP: Close to Home

This Week in Pictures, Week 33, 2021

Unlike Week 33s past, the 2021 Week 33 did not involve any beachy day trips, weekend getaways, or intercontinental travel. I barely left the house. On the plus side, I did manage to procure a bouquet of zinnias, which inspired some photo play and kept me plenty entertained.

TWiP: Window Box Chicken

This Week in Pictures, Week 31, 2021

I don’t know how the time manages to pass so quickly, but it always does. It’s August already. I feel like the summer just started, and yet we’re only a few short weeks away from pumpkin latte season. I’m starting to feel a little desperate to make sure I’ve availed myself of enough summer joy while it’s still here.

TWiP: Instant Gratification

This Week in Pictures, Week 30, 2021

It’s been a little over two years since I bought my first instant camera, and in that time, I’ve taken a few photos that I love, and a whole lot of photos that are kind of terrible. I don’t know what keeps me plunking down my hard-earned cash on yet another pack of film, or worse, a whole new camera to love/hate, but here we are. As of this week, I’ve got four instant cameras and two and a half photo albums full of evidence of my misadventures. I do think, though, that I may have finally turned a corner with my latest purchase…

Window Box Chicken’s Favorite Songs for Autumn

Window Box Chicken's Favorite Songs for Autumn

Chickens have very strong opinions about music.

Actually, that’s not true. Or, maybe it is. I really know next to nothing about chickens or if they really even notice when music is playing. But this silly playlist cover kind of just made itself, and what was I going to do? Not use it? I don’t think so 🐔😁

Facts About This Playlist

  • It starts off with a kind of neo-Sixties sound, which pops up here and there throughout the track listing
  • It’s pretty heavy on that mellow indie folk Autumn vibe
  • Some of the newer songs reminded me of much, much older songs (or artists), so I mixed in a few older songs among the new ones
  • For the older songs, I tried to pick ones that were less popular, so I don’t grow tired of them too soon
  • There are no songs about chickens on this playlist
  • There are no songs known to specifically appeal to chickens, either
  • I started out with a big list of modern Indie/Alt tunes, which I really like, but one-by-one removed them because they just weren’t “Fall” enough
  • This playlist includes a Crowded House/Neil Finn song, like more than half of all of my Autumn playlists
  • This playlist includes an Innocence Mission/Karen Peris song, like more than half of all of my Autumn playlists
  • I think you should listen to this while driving down a country road watching the leaves change
  • This would also be nice company while sitting in a cozy chair, sipping a maple cinnamon latte


This is my fifteenth Autumn playlist. You can listen to all of them on this Spotify playlist. They’re arranged in reverse chronological order, so you can go back in time as you listen, or just shuffle it for an “Autumn Radio” experience 🍂😊 (It’s nearly 20 hours of music, so it should keep you pretty busy.)


I do not personally know Window Box Chicken. I took WBC’s picture on a visit to Hillview Farms in Myersville, NJ while looking for a bouquet of zinnias to buy. It’s entirely possible (nay, likely) that WBC is completely unaware of this playlist and does not explicitly endorse my musical choices 😜
