In an effort to get myself to write and take more photos I decided to start a weekly post of the previous week’s photos that I took. I don’t have much of a plan for this series, but it feels like a good way to get myself to reflect on the past week and focus on writing more. It’s December, so with the Holidays and another heavy quarantine around the corner what better way to document the season? So here goes.
The neighborhood squirrels started a war last week. I’ve looked the other way as they ate our Halloween pumpkins or taunted our dog on the front steps. But it all changed last week. Every week I get a bag of coffee sent to our house through the online subscription service, Trade. Last week I was looking forward to this new bag from Irving Farm in New York. When I went outside to pick up the coffee beans much to my surprise the neighborhood squirrels busted into my the back and tore it apart. It’s on now, guys.
We’ve reached that in-between time of year where it’s not the colorful part of fall or the pretty part of winter. We’re living in the Mama’s and the Papa’s song – California Dreamin
We made marshmallow old fashions and they are great.
Since we have been quarantined it feels like we’re running the dishwasher every day of the week. And while the dishwasher is running, we’ve got a pile of dishes waiting in the sink for the next run. Much like a crowded rush hour platform, these dishes are always waiting for the next train/available washer.
It’s the best time of year for beer. We picked up four six packs of Christmas ales last week. Two sets of Bell’s – their Christmas Scotch Ale and their Old Fashioned holiday brew, St. Bernardas Christmas Ale and Odell’s Isolation Ale.
And finally the last worthy photo I took last week. There’s nothing special to say about this one, other than I really liked the way it all came together.
