Picture This: Week 49, 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.

In the winter, the kittens like to tuck in the curtains, catching both the heat vent and the window.  I love the little tails and paws that lurk out. 


November 29, 2016

Soup for days.


November 30, 2016

Winters are for afghans by grandma.


December 1, 2016

Maybe the best and most perfect looking cookies from dear friends - don't they look store-bought?? So perfect and delicious.


December 2, 2016

A quick run down the National Mall, complete with a stop at the National Christmas Tree. 


December 3, 2016

Holiday party at the Smithsonian National History Museum!


December 4, 2016

 I missed a picture of brunch on Sunday with our aunt, uncle and cousins.  We're so lucky that between our travels, we'll see nearly all of our family this month.  Afterward, we continued being touristy and strolled through Arlington National Cemetery.  The view back to DC is incredible from the hill there.

Girls night, represented by cheese plates.

Pie crust prep.

Arlo, the miniature version of our dear Fluffy, came into our lives just as she passed.  Welcome to the family, little kitten.  Rest in peace, Fluffy.  Happy sad.


November 24, 2016

Thankful for so much - for spending time with family, for living close enough to do so, to be able to drive home at night ahead of a weekend of basement work with families so willing to jump in and help.


November 25, 2016

These two were troopers with all the work over the weekend. They snuggled in to comfort each other on Friday, hiding from the noise and dogs. 


November 26, 2016

Lights! Lights! It's such an accomplishment. 


November 27, 2016

 After three long days of basement work, Henry was over it.  She had such sass on Sunday, the streak on her spine almost permanently up throughout the evening.  Cranky girl refused to go to bed, and just yelled at us.

Defenses against maybe the loudest hotel.


November 15, 2016

Another week in another hotel bathroom.


November 16, 2016

We visited the Dallas Cowboys stadium for a celebratory event during training.  It's very large.  Very, very large.


November 17, 2016

Flights at nights.


November 18, 2016

I forgot.  Completely, totally - forgot.  We went to dinner and ice cream with friends, were home and to bed early after a long week.  Maybe snuck part of an episode of The Crown? I can't fully remember.  

November 19, 2016

Ian and Meg are engaged! It was such an honor to be a part of their day.


November 20, 2016

 Bedtime routines.

Hotel life is the best and worst.  Late night snacking in bed with the TV is one of the perks.


November 8, 2016

This picture is very strange to me now.  Walking back to the hotel after a later night at work, I saw the flag and felt so hopeful for our country.  It's been a personal rollercoaster as the results of the election were the opposite of what I expected.  Here's hoping social change will not be defined by the leader elected.  


November 9, 2016

Copper bopper. 


November 10, 2016

We turned to a documentary about cats - The Lion in your Living Room - to distract from the week.


November 11, 2016

Finding Neverland was the second play in our series this year.  It's the story behind the writing of Peter Pan and was very interesting! 


November 12, 2016

A quick swing through Pittsburgh to tie up some business.  I'll need to stop back for a steadier picture - I love the Heinz building.


November 13, 2016

 Fur babies.

It was my first Halloween at the houseWe did get some trick-or-treaters, but the real star was the baked brie that I didn't set on fire.  


November 1, 2016

Morning necessities.


November 2, 2016

Copper was the original cat to play whack-a-cat under the covers, but hasn't come running to the snap of fresh sheets in a while.  He did on Wednesday, then curled up for a nap like a human.


November 3, 2016

Back in DC for work, walking for groceries and loving all of it.


November 4, 2016

It's been on my list to try for years: We the Pizza did not disappoint.


November 5, 2016

I caught up with friends on Saturday, and only took a picture of my empty uber after the driver popped out for an errand.  


November 6, 2016 


DC in the fall has to be one of the prettiest.  Okay, all fall is the prettiest.

Copper, confirming protection on all borders.

Copper, looking longing at his mug on a mug.

Copper, acting as a nurse's assistant and trying to hone in on my heating pad.

The illustrations within these new Harry Potter releases are so beautiful.  


October 28, 2016

The first of the season.  I've been quite tardy on my pumpkin spice chai.


October 29, 2016

This is my first beer in years.  Actual years.

Henry found a new level of lazy, laying down to catch her butterfly.  That look kills me though.

I missed the supermoon Sunday in all the rain.  I was happy to catch it nearly as big and bright on Monday.


October 18, 2016

Copper, posing as a nightmare.


October 19, 2016

It's hard to see, but Henry has taken to sleeping with her eyes open.  It is just as terrifying as you can imagine.  She's totally asleep - snoring, doesn't react to noise - and her eyes are  in a cold, dead stare.  These furbabies are really getting into the spooky spirit.


October 20, 2016

Lasagna dinner with some of our best friends.


October 21, 2016

It's a hard picture to capture, but one of my favorite views in the house is the hallway with this special picture as it lead into our bedroom.  It's even better with a sleepy Henry.  It's so much comfort to me.


October 22, 2016


Our fall decoration is kept to the porch this year.  It's disappointing to not have spiderwebs all about, but the basement is distracting us from any other house attention. 


October 23, 2016


 After suspicious activity for about a month, I finally spotted some individuals wearing camo and carrying a crossbow in our neighboring woods.  Deer culling was recently approved in our city, but I called them anyway because I don't necessarily like having a crossbow so close to my house.  We learned our neighbors have approved their land for approved hunting.  It breaks my heart.  This was the scene Sunday morning - deer peacefully resting and meandering around our yard.  As much as I complain about their destruction, there are ways to work around them.  There are ways to live together, and I've learned to love them.
