Picture This: Week 41, 2017.

Obligatory prelude: I've done a picture-a-day project for the past few years. Per usual, I debated the continuation of this series, but do appreciate the motivation to capture the ordinary and the connection it provides. It's obviously continuing another week, or until I decided to wrap it up.

October 9, 2017

I love when his excess mane waterfalls over his box.  Little Copper lion cub.

Denali's latest headshot.

In my unscientific opinion, the tea light version of the salt lamp/candle family is not as productive in releasing negative ions, but still just as good at ambiance. 


October 12, 2017

Scandal, with popcorn for dinner this week.


October 13, 2017

Henry appreciates clean sheets just as much as me.


October 14, 2017

Zach worked 24 hours on Friday.  When he crawled into bed Saturday morning, Henry was there to help him fall fast asleep, and to protect against those that might interrupt.  Her little head nestled on his elbow kills me.  She's the sweetest.

The lemon tree is soaking up the last minutes of warm weather, and lately, attracting Monarch butterflies.  I was so excited, until the butterflies also started attracting the cats.

Baby cat naps with her tongue sticking out.

October 2, 2017

Denali took a nap on Monday, and woke up with a swollen chin.  It's been a crazy month of ailments with these cats, but thankfully the swelling subsided on its own and we haven't seen it again since.


October 3, 2017

 Progress on the furbie friend front.


October 4, 2017

Henry.  Her attitude kills me.


October 5, 2017

Scandal's back!


October 6, 2017

In my latest update related to science or medicine that I'll never really be able to prove, I've added salt lamps to our bedtime routine.  The theory is the negative ions will help us to sleep better, and the fact is we'll likely never really know but will claim it's a benefit.


October 7, 2017

Supervisor Denali.  Watching through the window, it's like I'm in an operating room.


October 8, 2017

10k on the Towpath, kicking off the fall.

September 25, 2017

I've been practicing headstands for a couple months now.  I'm able to hold this for about 30 seconds now.


September 26, 2017

Fall on our patio is one of my favorites.


September 27, 2017

Lemon's days of being an outside tree are dwindling, so I'm so happy to see the bees soaking it up.


September 28, 2017

Sharing is caring.

September 29, 2017

Henry, on her birthday eve, playing in new sheets.


September 30, 2017

Cigars after a successful wiring of the kitchen and dining room lights.  We'd experienced some problems with our kitchen cans and after some investigation in the attic, found their wiring was very wonky from the previous owner.  We ran some new wires and it made all the difference.  The dining room is now completely off the knob and tube system! It's one small step, and the progress is very motivating. 


October 1, 2017

We installed an outlet on the far side of the patio today.  It's connected to a switch in the dining room, so we flip a switch to turn on our outdoor patio lights now.  We've talked about doing it for years.  It's so magical, despite the very dirty window.

September 18, 2017

Sweet Henry.


September 19, 2017

Milkweed in our front yard, covered in Monarch caterpillars.  I'm ecstatic. 


September 20, 2017

Denali caught a mole and looks just as surprised as us.


September 21, 2017

Denali and her best friend, her strange toy we call "Crazy" because that's what the package said.  I don't know what it is, but it resembles a finger trap, and she likes to bring it to you for throwing, exactly like fetch.  She'll play fetch for twenty minutes at a time.


September 22, 2017

Electrical work, and proof of taking a picture before starting a project, as we always say we'll do, before swapping out switches.


September 23, 2017

I spy a praying mantis.


September 24, 2017

 I assisted in installing a glass block window to replace our dryer window Sunday.

September 11, 2017

Sun spots.


September 12, 2017

It's a constant struggle to get into my bed spot before these two.  In unrelated news, the Hamilton biography is really interesting and engaging, though intimidating in size.


September 13, 2017

Sweet, sleepy Cop.


September 14, 2017

She was silent as I searched the house for her.  


September 15, 2017

The last few weeks have been packed, leaving us exhausted on Friday.  Copper happily soaks up extra snuggles.


September 16, 2017

Feline relationships are improving, but not without stalking and hunting and general checking up on each other.  


September 17, 2017

 Thankful to have a backup garden in my mum, supplementing my failed tomato crop.

September 4, 2017

Terrifying overhead views as I stretch on the floor.


September 5, 2017

Life as an aspiring plant mom is difficult when I wouldn't describe myself as particularly patient.  I don't know how this little leaf has held one for so long, but he's caught himself an extra couple weeks with a new shoot.  I'm ecstatic.


September 6, 2017

I joined a friend for a discussion hosted by Jay Asher.  I haven't read his books, but will, and am thankful to have similarly interested friends in the area.


September 7, 2017

Split yokes are sad starts.


September 8, 2017

Grabbed a pop from the grocery store and got a "hi" from Pops.


September 9, 2017

Copper gets so whiney if we work late in the basement on weekends.  He sits on the stairs, crying, and doing all he can to distract, divert, and encourage us upstairs to cuddle and watch TV with him.


September 10, 2017

 Henry is the snuggliest in the morning.  She gets as close as possible without actually touching you, and her cuddling up to the pillow is the sweetest.

Denali looking poised. 


August 29, 2017

I knew I hadn't cut my hair in a while, but it happened to be longer than I realized: 8 months.  Feels so fresh and undead.  


August 30, 2017

Denali hopped up for a snuggle after Copper and Zach had been there snacking on ice cream.  It's one small step for the furbs.  


August 31, 2017

Cleaning and making beds with Henry before heading off to Jacksonville for the weekend.  This girl is the sweetest.


September 1, 2017

We're undefeated in foosball. 


September 2, 2017

Jacksonville across the river.


September 3, 2017

 I'm so thankful and don't give Henry enough credit for being the most chill furb, almost always ready for a cuddle.  It was a rough return Sunday.  Henry was ready to sleep it off.
