Picture This: Week 38, 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.

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.

August 28, 2017

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.

August 21, 2017

I built myself a cardboard box viewer, watching the partial eclipse in awe, and captured this ominous picture as the clouds passed over the eclipse.


August 22, 2017

As we're forced to consider a new roof, I realized pictures of our house were very outdated. We've done so much to brighten up the front, and still have so much to do.


August 23, 2017

Denali and her favorite rope.


August 24, 2017

Tuckered kitten mittens.


August 25, 2017

Copper's favorite thing is his scratching post.  He was having a rough night Friday, but calmed himself with literal cuddling with his post.


August 26, 2017

We traveled to Veronica's Saturday to help with a  project.  Her pups are actual best friends, cuddling and hanging out, watching us work.


August 27, 2017

 Progress! We built about 2/3 of the shelves on one side of her fireplace.  I'm very excited to see the finished product.

August 14, 2017

Monday started a week-long intensive to learn the PMP - Project Management Professional - certification exam.  Classes were 9 hours/day, overwhelming and intense.


August 15, 2017

He looks like such a baby cat when he's attacking appendages under the covers.


August 16, 2017

There were many late nights studying this week, but Henry worked to warm up my bed spot.


August 17, 2017

Silly Henry, scaling drywall and surveying the basement.


August 18, 2017

Zach found a list of top Cleveland ice cream shops.  Several are within 5 miles of our house, and were not on our radar.  We have a new mission.


August 19, 2017

The Denali-Henry relationship is progressing, though precariously. 


August 20, 2017

 I passed the PMP exam! It was four hours long, I took all of that time but 5 minutes - which was much longer than any of my practice exams and entirely stressful, but it's done!

August 7, 2017

Copper had his 10th birthday on Monday, and we're now in the terrible 10's stage.


August 8, 2017

Relationships are slowly improving between Henry and Denali.  We're at the point of kind of being in the same room.


August 9, 2017

There's nothing sweeter than sleeping kittens.


August 10, 2017

Denali can jump over the gate and when it was in the door frame, there was enough room for only her to crawl under.  Instead, she tried to climb through, got stuck, and I spent more than twenty minute crying, bleeding, and trying to free her without thinking of if her hips were broken or sawing the gate in half.  She crawled out.  She's totally fine.  I'm going to have at least physical scars.


August 11, 2017

A perfect night in Cleveland included a wine and cheese fest with friends, topped with an Insomnia cookie and perfect weather.


August 12, 2017

Zach found a list of ice cream shops in Cleveland.  We now have a directive.  See also, a few of my many bandaids peeking into view.


August 13, 2017

 I made a door! This took years - actual years.  Most of that time was fear of this project. I learned a lot, and cabinet making it not in my actual future, but I'm confident enough to take these skills to some furniture plans in for the bar.
