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

Baker’s twine and push pins

And a whole lot of wishes for good health. I think Neil might like our new family room decoration when he gets out of the hospital.  It’s simply a length of baker’s twine with a slip knot at each end, held up with thumb tacks. Easy but effective! The kidney stone is still hanging in […]

Adventures in municipal parking

You have been so kind with your comments lately.
