Picture This: Week 33, 2013.

Last year, I started a picture-a-day project with the new year. My intent was and is to try and appreciate every day, the good and the bad. I'm posting weekly recaps of the past seven days. It's a fun way to recap the week, and keep me motivated for the next week. By throwing it up to the interwebs, it's a not so subtle reminder to myself that if I'm laying around all week and taking pictures of my feet poking out of a blanket as I watch Netflix for the millionth time, I'm going to bore everyone to sleep. Not that I care, guys. That being said, it's rarely ground-breaking, but I couldn't handle that anyway. It's a log of my life, and a gentle reminder to myself that life is a gift and I should take advantage every day. I don't want to get preachy. If you do this, I want to know so I can nose around. In the least creepy way possible. You can start anytime, too - a new year doesn't have to start on January 1. Steph created one mid-year. Veronica does this as well, but I'm losing faith in her ever updating her blog. Check out my past weeks through the "picture-a-day" topic link on the right.

The array of items that hang around our house is very strange indeed.

I worked from home on Tuesday and I cannot contain my excitement at working from this desk. It's very much a work in progress, but it's so beautiful to me.

My beloved cup fell out of my backpack and to the asphalt. I am disproportionately upset about this.

I might not have mentioned it, but recently, Zach decided that the coffee table we had built from pallets was a poor decision as we had not researched the pallets beforehand. He read about how pallets should be heat treated (discernible by a stamp or HT marking on them) to be used indoors and after we painted them, there was no way to know. So he chainsawed it in half. I maintain he was looking for an excuse to use the chainsaw. That left us with little option but to quickly build a coffee table before his upcoming fantasy football draft. Thankfully, we had some leftover wood from revised desk planning.

Sometimes the fur babies like to sit on their shelves and just throw shade on us. It's not so silent judging.

Saturday was epic. It started with a zoo trip and the discovery that the Cleveland zoo is awesome. Apart from baby Charlotte, they have koalas, hippos, giraffe feedings, everything. Later, we went to the Feast of the Assumption in Little Italy and ate ourselves into food-babies. Seriously, I'm still digesting the best bruschetta of my life and savoring the lemon ice.

The office is coming together much more quickly now. There's a ton of little things to do that will keep me from feeling the room is complete for a while, but we have a working light, a new light fixture, the structure of the standing desk, and a nearly complete sitting desk. I'm so excited and love looking at this mess of a room.
