My Week In Black And White

Thought it would be fun to share some black and white images of my week for Five on Friday.

The thing going around Facebook gave me the idea.  Have you seen it? Share 5 black and white images of your life, no explanations.

Of course, I’m making my own rules.  The images of my week come with explanations. And I’ll probably share more than five photos.

Here are five black and white images of my week:

ONE:  Turkey Time

my week Put the Halloween decor away, turned my pumpkin pillow, and brought out a few stuffed turkeys.

TWO: Books

After work on Tuesday, I made a mad dash to the library to return books.  And I got more books.  I really do need to stay away from that “new and notable” section though.  Fourteen day check out and no renewals. Tough one.  Couldn’t pass up the new Michael Crichton book.  my week

Haven’t had a chance to read any of them yet.  Hopefully, this weekend will allow time to read.

THREE: Cappuccino Day

I get a daily e-mail from Foodimentry telling me each food holiday.  And Wednesday was Cappuccino day. my week No time to go get one.  I made a pretend mocha instead with hot chocolate, a bit of coffee, whipped cream, and leftover Halloween sprinkles.  The boys decided they’d like to celebrate the day as well and ordered the same, hold the coffee.  my week

FOUR: More Coffee, With A Little Flavor my week

My husband gets ready for hunting season his way and I get ready my way.  He likes to get up at the crack of dawn and sit in trees.  I prefer to stay home and drink flavored coffee.

FIVE: Life Busy Level Is At Maximum Mess  my week

A birthday sleepover Sunday into Monday (the boys were out of school on Monday) followed by me working every day of the week left a laundry basket full of blankets.  Did I mention we were out of laundry soap?  Did I mention the teenager decided to inform me last night his band uniform was due back on Friday (probably sooner) and we needed it wash it?

No time to even fuss about the sofa being covered in stuff.  Can’t really complain since as you can see from the purse and library books behind it, I’m just as guilty.

Can’t complain too much about being busy either as I (mostly) love my job and just think Christmas is coming every time I’m asked to work.

That said, I’m very ready for Christmas break to arrive. Not necessarily Christmas part but definitely the break part.

How has your week been going?

    Love the black and white photos. I’m not on facebook but the same thing is going around on instagram. I haven’t joined in yet, maybe I’ll borrow the idea for next week’s Five on Friday. Have a great weekend 🙂

      Thank you! I didn’t know it was on Instagram as well. I’m on there but haven’t been checking very often since they took away the chronological order. Drives me nuts when the posts are all out of order. Hope you have a wonderful weekend as well!

    We have a similar treat drink here – chocolate milk with dairy whip cream twirled on top with powdered chocolate sprinkled across the cream. The kids think it is fantastic (they are both under 10) and makes Mum earn best mum in the world points that I can use when they are sixteen 😀

    I think I’m scared of the teenage years 😀

    Black and white is definitely an interesting medium. Thanks for sharing your week with us, and be reassured that, yep, I, too, have a pile of washing in my loungeroom that I will be nagging the kids to put away 😀

    Best wishes,

      The teenage years aren’t as scary (usually) as it seems when they are under 10. 🙂 Laundry is certainly never-ending isn’t it? Hope you have had a good Monday!
