TWiP: Nothing to See Here

This Week in Pictures, Week 12, 2022

It bothers me that I can no longer seem to get my act together enough to post these roundups on time every Saturday morning. I’d like to make this blog a priority, but in reality, turning on my desktop and waiting for it to respond while I try to edit photos lies somewhere under “watch TV” and “do whatever I feel like doing” on my list these days.

I’ve gone so far as to consider switching to a monthly format, but I fear that would be even worse. For me, getting into a habit on a particular day of the week is theoretically much easier than getting into that habit on a particular day of the month, which could fall on a lazy Sunday, a busy Monday, or a random Wednesday.

Habit-making aside, a monthly format would certainly be beneficial in terms of avoiding weeks like this one, where the photography has been so uninspiring that I’ve actually considered skipping it entirely.

I won’t, though. Skip it, I mean. I do this for Future Me, who really does enjoy going back through the archives every week. Present Me just needs to get her act together, develop a posting habit, and remember to look for beautiful things to capture with my camera some weeks 🙂

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).


Laundry. I refuse to wear boring socks 🧦😁

This plant caught my eye today. I don’t remember the edges being so red before. I enjoy the way the deep red blends into the green. It’s artistic.
Two miles after work, while listening to some tunes I’m auditioning for my new Spring playlist. I’m not usually a huge fan of exercise, but this was surprisingly blissful 💕

I have a serious wire problem. All jumbled together in a mess behind the monitors on my desk. I finally had enough and took every single thing off of my desk tonight, unplugged everything, and then plugged it back in in as orderly a fashion as I could. It’s still not perfect. I need to tie up and hide some of these wires. But it’s much better!
And of course, I have to add all of my little do-dads back into the mix.

  1. Gotta say something for the lovely honesty.💕. Enjoyed it

    1. I’m nothing, if not honest 😀

  2. Maybe it’s a pandemic thing but I have learned new ways of wasting time, spinning my wheels and procrastinating. You are not alone.

    1. I’m willing to believe it is a pandemic thing. I also think not wanting to sit at the computer in my free time, since that’s how I spend my whole work day, is a factor.
