Picture This: Week 34, 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.

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As we're forced to consider a new roof, I realized pictures of our house were very outdated.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.

Denali and her favorite rope.


August 24, 2017

Tuckered kitten mittens.

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.

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

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!

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.

Breakfast as the esteemed Crazy Eggs - an extension of an actual egg farm - before heading out of Warsaw.


August 1, 2017

Nightstand stacked with what I'm currently reading and what I aspire to read.  I'm looking forward to Vonnegut - I've never read before.  


August 2, 2017

Copper, blending in the mulch and sleeping like his inner wild beast.


August 3, 2017

Denali and a pretty good angle of her creepy long toes.


August 4, 2017

We're nearly at the one-month mark of Denali joining the family, and this is the first time all three fur babies have been in the same room with somewhat positive - or, even better - apathetic - reactions.  


August 5, 2017

Basement progress wasn't as smooth as we'd hoped, but we're at the point in our DIY game when we know when to quit and save ourselves from forced mistakes.  It opened the night to a new Netflix series which we're really enjoying: GLOW.

 Exploring Cleveland, courtesy of a Wacky Walk scavenger hunt my mum gifted me for my birthday.
