This Week in Pictures, Week 5, 2022

Just a bit of everyday life going on around here. Nothing exciting happening this week, but I’m ok with “nothing exciting” most of the time 🙂

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the little (and big!) moments I have captured all week. Some of these images are posted on Instagram, but many aren’t posted anywhere but here. Some days there may be no photos, and other days there may be multiples.

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


Saturday snow


I usually stream my own Spotify playlists in the car, but sometimes I put on some terrestrial radio, and sometimes it rewards me by playing an old favorite I haven’t heard in a while.

Posted on Instagram: Good morning! I’ve been scarce around here lately, mostly because I’ve spent the last week doing nerdy stuff that doesn’t photograph well. I’m not sure that’s going to change any time soon, TBH. I took today off (because it’s January, and I have a year’s worth of shiny new PTO just there for the taking) and the first thing I did this morning, after making coffee, was write a list of things I’d like to accomplish today. Half of them are continuations of aforementioned nerdy things. The other half of them could prove photo worthy, but if we’re being completely honest here, there’s a nonzero chance I could blow off the whole list and just watch TV in my pajamas, so… 🤷🏻‍♀️
This basket and everything in it is the same color.
My mom made me this quilt when I was little. It’s actually a twin size, so it’s not staying on this bed, but I thought I’d put it here for a while since I am washing the sheets today.
Muncha buncha, muncha buncha, Fritos go with lunch.


Knitting a little sleeve on my lunch hour, as you do 🙂


I dug the old Polka Dot Radio mug (circa 2006) out of the closet today, and enjoyed an extra large coffee while listening to the modern incarnation of Polka Dot Radio.


Fun with temporary tattoos for the knitting nerd crowd.

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