279-283/366: Week in Photos

Shortened “week” this week, because I did the last photo dump on Tuesday. 80% of these are also from a single day, this Friday, when I decided to call a Mental Health Day and get away from stuff that was annoying me by driving down to Scoharie County to hike up Vroman’s Nose. 279/366: Road…

276-278/366: Fun With Editing

Last in a series of themed collections of pictures. These ones are showcasing my rudimentary GIMP skills, pasting together multiple pictures into composites. 276/366: Sky-Bison for Scale One of the earliest happenings in the three-week period I’m dumping photos from was SteelyKid getting strep throat again. She spent a Friday at home, and I took…

This one, we’ll do sorta-kinda chronologically: 268/366: Niska-Parade One of the big temporal landmarks of the recent stretch without photo-blogging posts was “Niska-Day,” the annual community festival here. This kicks off with a parade, the route for which comes right to the end of our street. Here’s one of the first marching elements, the local…

Once again, I’ve let a very long time pass without posting photos. It’s been a crazy stretch for us, starting with SteelyKid getting yet another case of strep throat, then DAMOP, then a trip to my parents’ for Memorial Day weekend, then trying to recover from the previous. As with the last few, I’l group…

251-256/366: The Week in Photos

Getting caught up to today, a bunch of pictures from the past week (250/366 was the photo of Emmy’s memorial shrub): 251/366: Wagons Ho! Last weekend we had gorgeous spring weather, so the kids were playing outside a bunch. They ended up getting out the wooden wagon SteelyKid got for her birthday some years back,…

As promised/threatened in the previous post, here’s a big collection of shots from our cruise vacation featuring the sillyheads. 243/366: Bunk Beds: The sleeping arrangements in the stateroom were pretty slick. We had a double bed that was there all the time, and during the day a sitting area with a couch. While we were…

Since I’ve given up on the strict daily arrangement, I’m going to somewhat arbitrarily assign photos from the cruise numbers corresponding to the days of the last two weeks. I’ll do this in two big photo dump posts, grouped by whether or not SteelyKid and The Pip are in the shots. And since this is…

250/366: Final Resting Place

There’s a discontinuous jump here, if you’re paying attention to photo-a-day numbering, but I’m skipping ahead of the cruise-centered backlog to write a more difficult entry. Back in December, when we lost the Queen of Niskayuna, I had her cremated, and said I’d do something nice as a memorial, once the weather got nicer. We…

The week leading up to our cruise was crazy busy for me, with a bunch of travel for work. Which means you get a collection of cell-phone snapshots from that week, since I didn’t bring the good camera with me on all those trips. 229/366: Man the Barricades There are some paths running into the…

213-228/366: Kid-Light Photo Dump

As promised in the last catch-up post, a set of pictures less devoted to cute-kid shots. 213/366: Zone Defense The Pip has been making one of his preschool teachers draw superheroes for him. At some point, he cut these out with scissors (or possibly made Kate cut them out), and hung them up in different…
