Cee’s Flower of the Day (

I like this little guy.

Caturday – wait…it’s the last one of July…what???

Man.  That means only one more week of holidays, and I have to go back to that place, I mean, back to work.  Don’t get me wrong.  I miss my work, just not all the stuff that seems to go along with it these days.

Anyway.  These guys say they will enjoy having me around for another week…will they miss me when I go back?  Don’t answer that!!

Pull Up a Seat Challenge – 2019 Week 30

Welcome to XingfulMama’s Pull Up a Seat Challenge (

“As I get older I find myself more and more often looking for a place to perch when I am out and about. This might be a chair, a bench, a wall, a pew…maybe even a log or a rock. These spots can be artfully designed, quirky or very plain, sometimes they have a view, sometimes you meet someone else who needs a rest.”  (

Pull up a seat – any seat.  This is what happens when you go to your favourite restaurant half an hour before the kitchen closes for the night!

RagTag Daily Prompt: Prepare

A response in starting over with a new daily avoidance (or non-avoidance, as the case may be), here with the Ragtag Daily Prompt (, today is Prepare.

Wallpaper, prepare to die….bathroom, prepare to be painted!

Fandango’s One Word Challenge: Touch

“Welcome 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 “Touch.””  (

Don’t touch me…

July Writing Prompts, Day 26 – Misaligned and malevolent

From Putting My Feet in the Dirt (, July’s prompts are here:

And today, July 26, the prompt is “Misaligned and malevolent”.

As I work on various rooms in our house to renovate them, and by renovate, I mean paint because, well, that’s about the extent of my reno skill, I discover old renos misaligned at best, bordering on malevolent.

Why is there a big chunk of wood screwed into the wall to hold a mirror?   A nail not good enough for you?

Why are there two layers of wallpaper in the bathroom, ONLY behind the toilet?  Couldn’t just take off the tank and do it right??

Why, oh dear lord, why did you wallpaper over unpainted drywall????

Master Bedroom 6

Every room an adventure in prep before painting, discovering the malevolence within.
