Share Your World – July 24, 2017

And now for this week’s Share Your World (https://ceenphotography.com/2017/07/24/share-your-world-july-24-2017/).

List some of your favorites types of teas.

Ice-T, Mr. T, G&T…

If you had to describe your day as a traffic sign, what would it be?

What are a couple of things could people do for you on a really bad day that would really help you?

Bring me a big glass of wine and listen to me bitch for as long as I need to.

Irregardless of your physical fitness, coordination or agility: If you could be an athlete what would you do?   Remember this is SYW, dreaming is always allowed.

Drinking wine and bitching is a show of coordination, right?

What I’ve done on 2017 Summer Holidays Part II, Day 1

A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/fragrance/

So, during these 3 weeks off of work, I’ll be working…on some things in the house.  There is always something to avoid, er, I mean, do in an old house like this.  So, the main things I want to do inside over the next three weeks are:  paint the little tiny porch at the back of the house, paint the main floor bathroom, strip wallpaper off the stairwell walls (or as much of it as I can without a ladder…I’m not getting up on a ladder in the stairwell for ANYONE!).

So, today I did some prep in the back porch area.  It’s a small space, but was originally covered in wallpaper.  Now, imagine me swearing to myself just now as I realized that this is the ONE space I don’t have a real “before” picture of.  Sigh…

I do, however have befores and afters of one of the two doors…Why, oh why don’t I have a “before” of the deck door???  You can see the after below…

Anyway, I got the leftover wallpaper out from the door frames and chair rail, and then patched the big hole above the deck door.

And now I will need to sand that tomorrow, wash the walls, and then paint!  Here is the space now:

This is the idea, although that gold is too dark – we have a lighter version we will use instead.

So, tomorrow, the adventure continues!!

Newness on the Deck

A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/harmonize/

So, our deck’s been around awhile (although there is a WHOLE story about how we had to get a permit for it two years ago even though it had been there for about 60 years…)

Here is our deck from when we bought this house, ’til last night!

Blank slate…

The railing that set off the “permit police”!

Painting last year…

Lighted magic!!

So, what do you think the actual colour of this beauty (which, once again, I don’t know the name of, but want it in my yard) is?

A Caturday for Jill

A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/dormant/

My friend Jill over at Filosofa’s Word is needing a Caturday fix today to help keep her mind off of the sh%$storm that is Drump-land.  So, Jill, this one’s for you!  They are oldies, but goodies – one for each month of the past year, unless I miscounted, which I probably did, but who cares – it’s Caturday!!

I love daisies.  In B&W…

And in colour!

Friday, at last!

A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/gate/

AND for Forgiveness Friday (https://forgivingconnects.com/2017/07/14/todays-forgiving-fridays-results-of-my-7-day-quiet-my-mind-retreat/), because I’ve been fretting about what to post for Forgiveness Friday for awhile, and these pictures seemed to work for me.  Why?  Well, my friend Debbie over at Forgiving Connects said “To me, photography can be a powerful form of forgiveness and letting go, just in the essence of their beauty.”

And nos it’s time to let go of the week and move on into the weekend…AND 3 weeks of holidays 🙂  Staycation, here I come!
