Fandango’s One Word Challenge: Deadline

“Welcome to July 31, 2018 and to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). It’s designed to fill the void after WordPress bailed on its daily one-word prompt. Today’s word is “Unknown.””  (https://fivedotoh.com/2018/07/31/fowc-with-fandango-deadline/)

There wasn’t much of a deadline here, only that I really wanted to get this done before going back to work next week.  I have a bit more to finish up (second/third coats of the white trim and touch-ups), but I think I’ll make it!

This was our upstairs bathroom.  Well, it still is, but it looks a bit different now.  Here is it two weeks ago in all its blah, blue, and brown glory (excuse the cat boxes – we do have lots of cats…and cat boxes…):

And here it is after changing the wall colour.  You can see through the door that the colours match the hallway – we just reversed them!  This was also after just one coat, so the bottom colour does not look done yet…

 

And now – amazing the difference, eh?  It will be good when it’s all done…

This fellow (?) was patiently waiting for his quarry…

What’s left of a flower anyway…

And it’s the last Caturday of July!

Can you believe it?  July 28th – the last Caturday of July.  And only one more week off before I’m back to work.  Well, it was nice while it lasted!

I think Elliot and Jasper will miss me when I go back, don’t you?

A New Challenge!

I have officially joined Cassia Elisabeth’s (https://cassiaelisabeth.wordpress.com/)  Photography Challenge.  This is a 10-day challenge, starting August 1st, with the following themes:

Day 2. Writing
Day 3. A Pool
Day 4. Ice Cream
Day 5. Something Mint Green
Day 6. A Portrait

Cassia says: “So each day, starting on August 1st, you will post a picture. You can write something telling about the photo if you would like, but if you would prefer not to, don’t worry about it.”  And here are The Rules:
  1. I ask that YOU please take all the photo’s YOURSELF.
  2. Please put a post up a week before the challenge telling your followers about it and please put a link to my post or my blog.
