One Photo Every Hour (or Thereabouts) - Saturday

People asked for more "photo every hour" posts, so here's a peek at last Saturday. :)

10 am
Breakfast...shortcake biscuits from Trader Joe's and elderberry jelly that Dawn sent me. (Thanks, Dawn!)

11 am
We are doing stuff around the house. I say something funny and Peter laughs.

12 pm
Trying to decide what to wear.

(I end up wearing a striped orange shirt and navy polka dot skirt with striped sneakers if anyone's curious.)

1 pm
We watch a bit of the Nats game...most importantly, the President's race. This photo is misleading; Abe won by a landslide. Also, yes he is waving a Swedish flag cause why not?

2 pm
I think the book Peter's reading right now is really pretty, but he says it's boring. Too bad you really can't judge a book by it's cover.

3-something pm
We decide to get out of the house for a bit. Our train is here.

4 pm
We go to the Corcoran, which has free Saturdays. (Also, I feel like I should mention here that there's not a lot on view right now at the Corcoran that isn't permanent collection, so if you are a tourist and have limited time in DC, I would not put it at the top of your list. I hate to say that because the Corcoran has been struggling this past year, but that's a topic for a whole other post.)

5 pm
Looking at pretty art till the gallery closes.

6 pm
We walk around for a bit.

7 pm
Dinner at Chipotle. We also got smoothies at another place. Mine was not great and basically tasted like smushed bananas. I've been losing the smoothie game lately.

8 pm
Doing Etsy stuff.

9 - 11 pm
I do some sketching and make a journal. I can't decide whether to list it in my shop or not because I really love this one. But I do. It's here if you'd like to see better photos.

12 am
Watch some Goonies. (A couple days ago, the guy behind the counter at Starbucks was wearing a bandana exactly like Josh Brolin in this movie. So, guess that's a thing now? I sure hope so.)

That's the last photo I took, though I was up doing stuff till 2 am, which I really regretted when I woke up at 7 am on Sunday. So that was my day; hope you enjoyed it! :)


  1. Ah such a great day! I love the cover of Peters *.* I love books that look like that with hardcovers :)

  2. OMG... I just realized that is Josh Brolin in Goonies. I've seen that movie SO MANY times. My mother was actually watching that over the weekend too!!!

    I really like how you said doing stuff with the picture with Peter except..he's clearly lounging and wearing PJs not doing anything.

    1. Hahaha. Maybe I should've said *I'm* doing stuff around the house. ;)

  3. The Presidents race is fantastic! I always feel as though we get a bit screwed in Baltimore. The hot dog race is a digital event on the big screen. We usually go to a game in DC once a year and I have to say that something about those giant heads is pretty amazing...haha.

  4. WooHoo for the Goonies...great movie!
    I've always wanted to try elderberry wine, I bet the jelly is great!

  5. I had a lot of fun looking at your photos. Glad you got to go out on such a gorgeous day. DC is on my top 5 list of places I hope to visit (maybe next year?). :)

  6. Love the outfit you wore! And I'd really love to go to DC. Such an awesome place to live!


  7. I love the outfit you decided to wear, but also really love the skirt on your bed with the birds on it. I think I need more cute skirts! What you showed us of DC makes it look like a really nice city. So great to go to the art gallery. I go to ours often tot, even to see the permanent collection, although you're right ... It's usually more interesting when there is a special show on.

  8. Goonies is the best! Looks like a fun day;)
