Picture This: Week 45, 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.

November 6, 2017

Bees by Victoria Beckham for Target.  That's several of my favorite things at once.


November 7, 2017

Windows technology continues to find more ways to terrify me.  


November 8, 2017

I love the DC metro.  I miss the DC metro.  I think the tunnels are beautiful, and it's a transportation system that should exist in more cities.  


November 9, 2017

Copper taking over Denali's usual post.


November 10, 2017

Henry, back from her dental surgery and licking her chomps after a snack.  The poor girl had tooth reabsorption, meaning her teeth were being absorbed back into the bone. It's apparently really painful.  I'm hoping this procedure will help, and that it will explain the pain and bouts of not eating she's been experiencing these last few months.


November 11, 2017

I had my hair done for the first time in years.  My hairdresser put in two tones, and though it's subtle in artificial light, it's so sparkly in the sun.  I think I would increase the variation next time, but I'm so excited.


November 12, 2017

 Sunday nights.

Turkey vultures are terrifyingly large on the ground, and staked out my neighbor's yard just in time for Halloween.  


October 31, 2017

Synchronized sleep.


November 1, 2017

Thanks to after-Halloween sales, we have our very own zombie dinosaur skeleton.  His name is Mister Tumnus.  


November 2, 2017

Hotel life.


November 3, 2017

DC is best in the fall.


November 4, 2017

My parents were in town visiting friends the same weekend I was in town for work.  We met up to do what we do best: walking tours.  This time, in Georgetown.


November 5, 2017

 My only foray outside of work was to meet a friend for dinner.  As with most times with friends, I forgot my phone.  I did remember long enough to take a picture of their pizza ingredients.  Next: to try to make a dough with white flour, semolina flour, water, vegetable oil, yeast and salt.

October 23, 2017

A blurry picture late after I would have liked to be in bed.  Denali was off on a grand adventure Monday, and in our stress of looking for her, Copper picked up some stress and peed on the curtains.  As we cleaned that, Denali returned home, and it was as if nothing happened.


October 24, 2017

Little bathroom motif that I'm really liking at the moment.  


October 25, 2017

Denali spooning with the cat pillow.  The tail hooked on the other picture kills me.


October 26, 2017

Copper finding his light.


October 27, 2017

Denali is in constant training, learning what she can and can't climb.  She's not allowed to climb most things, but she tries.  I caught her sleeping on the ironing board, and before scolding, captured her in a yawn.


October 28, 2017

My sister, future brother-in-law, and parents visited this weekend for the ever-ongoing basement project.  My dad and sister helped me to rewire two circuits, moving us several steps closer to a knob-and-tube free house, and allowing us to start drywalling the basement ceiling.  Copper cuddled with his grandma, and after all his drama toward their relationship, it was the sweetest.


October 29, 2017

 We officially have a bedroom.  All of the walls are up and drywalled.  Next: main room ceiling.

Henry looming.


October 17, 2017

Henry's derpy play face.


October 18, 2017

Sorting photos, debating what to scan, and moving everything into the digital age.


October 19, 2017

Baby Oreos are my favorite blood donation reward.


October 20, 2017

Friday was our first show of the new musical season.  The season started with Waitress, which was so good.  I wasn't particularly excited for the show, but it exceeded expectations in story and in humor.  


October 21, 2017

I added planters and fake plants to the porch. I feel very excited about it.


October 22, 2017

 We haven't parked in the garage since August of 2016, when we gutted the basement and first filled the garage with the debris.  Then we filled the garage with supplies.  We carried the last of the drywall down on Sunday, and completion feels near in so many ways.  That, and our cars look so happy to be back home.

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


October 10, 2017

Denali's latest headshot.


October 11, 2017

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.


October 15, 2017

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.

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.
