Picture This: Week 35, 2016.

Obligatory prelude: I've done a picture-a-day project for the past couple years. I usually debate its continuation annually, but it was a no-brainer this year.  This series keeps me posting when nothing else will write itself.  I will be trying to post more regularly otherwise! Besides, as last year, I like it as a part of posting the ordinary and capturing daily life. Check out past posts through the picture-a-day tag.

Dog parade.


August 23, 2016

I switched carts at the Aldi checkout, only to return and find the new cart had a Denali National Park quarter.  On an otherwise rough day, it was a small sign to bring a smile.


August 24, 2016

Basement renovations are otherwise consuming us.


August 25, 2016

We filled two bagsters with drywall, brick and other basement debris.  We're still not cleared out, but it's a start. 


August 26, 2016

Pumpkin cookies on a Christmas plate in late summer.


August 27, 2016

Lucy stopped over to side-eye.


August 28, 2016

I expected the windows to help show progress better, but a summer storm snuck up.  I'll estimate half of the basement is clear.  Surprise of surprises, it looks like a basement.

The week started with late-night painting.  I was behind on my sister's tables, and trying to finish before the weekend.


August 16, 2016

People cat.


August 17, 2016

With her little tail, Henry sometimes reminds me of a chubby little beaver or monkey.  Without a picture to prove it, we went to Paul McCartney that night and randomly sat in the row in front of my college roommate!  The concert was fantastic - really one of the best I've seen, and catching up was the happiest coincidence.


August 18, 2016

In the spirit of record-keeping, I'll be writing on these later.  I didn't expect to love the style of these side tables as much as I do.


August 19, 2016

It's hard to say if there's ever been a pup more spoiled than Lucy.


August 20, 2016

Steph had this nasty fire ant bite for the longest time (it would appear it continues).  It's scabbed into a cute little star shape now.


August 21, 2016

The picture's totally blown out, but in Steph's town, there's weekly waterskiing shows.  It was phenomenal - even this terrible picture shows that.

DC mornings.  I do miss the commute via metro. 


August 9, 2016

I can't speak for the culture or food, but DC's Chinatown has one of my favorite gates.  I worked here for years and love its colors, scale, and juxtaposition here.


August 10, 2016

Embassy Suites always reminds me of a foreign apartment complex.


August 11, 2016

Airport bar, and wine.


August 12, 2016

Olympic cookie decorating champion.


August 13, 2016

We started our biggest project on Saturday.  We're tearing out the basement and starting it over.  There were moments of panic, but we're in it now.

It's been rainy and hot - Bruce is loving life outside.

August 1, 2016

Finished by firepit bench.  It's just about four feet long and I'm debating if I need another.  


August 2, 2016

Our fire hydrant got a spiffy new paint job.


August 3, 2016

These have become their new normal positions.  I can't determine Henry's objective. 


August 4, 2016

Another paint job for the fire hydrant.  His silver cap was replaced with red, meaning he doesn't have a strong water source.


August 5, 2016

Friday fire with friends.


August 6, 2016

Zach built this awesome pallet bar for the deck.  We envision it holding drinks and food, but it also holds cats. 


August 7, 2016

 Olympics!

The living room.  I feel frustrated with its piecemeal nature, but that's a result of the cleared basement.  It's going to be a struggle to sit and ignore the clutter.


July 26, 2016

Zombie cat.


July 27, 2016

Dad was in town, so it was an unexpected evening in Wadsworth.  Also unexpected: the giant mansions there.


July 28, 2016

My newest piece from Easy.  I'm in love.


July 29, 2016

Cleveland is so alive right now, it's fantastic.  After a comedy show with friends, we wandered around some new hotel bars, stumbled across the Cleveland Orchestra concert in Public Square, caught some fireworks, and finished with ice cream.  Cleveland - so good.


July 30, 2016

I repotted my jade plant, and now it's a precarious situation.  I think we're making progress. 


July 31, 2016

 Sunday movies.

Ludington, Michigan.  This place was beautiful.


July 19, 2016

Donut fiend: guilty.


July 20, 2016

Henry, always throwing judgment. 


July 21, 2016

Henry! In less than 24 hours, she lost the attitude and posed like a sweet little fur baby.


July 22, 2016

Trimming and finishing the closets.  


July 23, 2016

The last play in our first series: Steel Magnolias.  I loved the venue and set - it was a fantastic production.


July 24, 2016

 Birthday celebrations!

 Monday yoga is one of my favorite things.


July 12, 2016

A present! I love the unexpected packages.


July 13, 2016

I hadn't been to the dermatologist in a while - since moving to Cleveland - and paid the price: three moles.


July 14, 2016

I love the shoots cucumbers plants send out, twisting and gripping as if they had eyes.  It's faint, but this guy latched himself on tight.  Now start popping out cukes!


July 15, 2016

A really, really mad Henry. 


July 16, 2016

I had tried to nurse the previous back to life, but a dead plant in the office was depressing. I gave up.  The new plant literally gives me life.

Celebrated National Ice Cream Day with ice cream on Lake Michigan.
