2021 365: Day 103 (April 13)

So, I’m taking my prompts this year from a 365 book simply entitled “365 Day Photo Challenge”.  The idea this year is for me to take this more seriously, to think about the prompt and actively shoot for it, not just pick a photo that may or may not match.  Yes indeed.  Getting real.  The prompt today is “Nose.”

Share Your World – April 12, 2021

And now for this week’s Share Your World

What would be the worst “buy one get one free” sale of all time?

The past year.

Have you ever gotten a really bad haircut?  Do share! 

Never!

Isn’t Disney Land and Disney World (and all the variants) just a people trap operated by a mouse?

Goofy is the real behind the scenes genius…but you didn’t hear that from me.

What if Batman got bitten by a vampire?   What would happen? 

A better movie than The Justice League.

What do you want your final words to be if you could choose?

So long and thanks for all the fish…you know what I mean!

Blogging from A to Z Challenge: K is for… (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2021 Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

I’ve revealed my theme (Photos and Stories), and once again, in spite of the best laid plans (who am I kidding, there were no plans, only aspirations) I am going to be blogging my theme letters on the fly.  So, here goes nothing!

Today, K is for Kitchen. I know, this is a little different from my other stories. A while room, but what a room. When we first moved into this house, I hated the kitchen. None of the cupboards had doors, and there were no drawers at all. Who has a kitchen with no drawers? Friend Judy and I spent a day cleaning it out. There wasn’t anything stinky, but there were a lot of suspect things in it, and it all needed to go. And everything needed to be scoured. Kevin and up got rid of all the old appliances and updated them all, hired someone to create some drawers and doors, and finally a couple of summers ago we replaced the old aluminum window with amazing wood double hung beauties.

I should also mention that the kitchen has an old house slant. Knowing that the back corner of the house was separated from the foundation, that is no surprise. That is fixed now, but the slant remains. Because the true fix is to bring in engineers and well, we don’t want to be opening up that Pandora’s box. I can tell you, the slant caused some major issues with the window replacements and the ceiling. But we have a brilliant carpenter who created some smoke and mirrors for us, and it actually looks straight now!

Some day I want to replace the cupboards and the counter tops, but for now this works for us.

I was lazy today, so here are some before pictures from 9 years ago, followed by today taken, lazily because I don’t feel like editing photos, with the emPhone.  Back to the big girl camera tomorrow!

Blogging from A to Z Challenge: J is for… (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2021 Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

I’ve revealed my theme (Photos and Stories), and once again, in spite of the best laid plans (who am I kidding, there were no plans, only aspirations) I am going to be blogging my theme letters on the fly.  So, here goes nothing!

Today, J is for Java Machine Extraordinaire! We do love our fancy coffees. This is the second espresso machine we’ve owned. The first one we had for about ten years I think, and used it every day, except for the few times it had to stay overnight at the coffee maker repair place.  It was our friend. But then came the day we decided it was time to upgrade. We had no trouble finding our old friend a home, and this new one is fabulous. Automatic everything. Kevin can have easy lattes every day, and me, well I confess I pretty much stick to the Americano that just fits my favourite mug, as I related in my C is for post.

But occasionally I venture into the unknown and try one of the sixteen or so different options, well maybe not that many, but there are many and each one allows for different coffee strengths, different amounts of water, and different temperatures. The sky’s the limit if you aren’t afraid to fly!

Frothy goodness…
