I Bit the Bullet

.....ordered the appliances......and went into debt!

But we now have lovely new stainless steel appliances! They didn't have the induction cooktop in stock so we have to wait for that. And I didn't take a picture of the dishwasher because it's still in the box and I didn't think a picture of a box would interest you.

You'll get to see it all once the kitchen is complete (more or less....lol) pretty soon!

I didn't even wait to peel off the protective film I was so excited to show you! 
(or for Husband to put the handles on the fridge! LOL)

Why do doctors leave the room when you change? They're going to see you without your clothes on anyway.

How can something be "new" and "improved"? if it's new, what was it improving on?

Inktober 2018


I have been floundering with my art for the past few weeks/months/years…..lol. 

I couldn’t decide what online course(s) to take……if any…..

I’d sit down with the urge to paint/sketch/draw but was stymied about WHAT to paint/sketch/draw……I blamed it on the kitchen reno and having all my supplies packed away. But I wasn’t interested in drawing on Tabley either……

So I took a look at Inktober 2018 and kind of backed into it. I was playing around with inkblots (blowing ink with canned air) and then ‘finding’ things in the blots and decided to see if I could incorporate that idea into the Inktober prompts. So far I’ve done 5! (Which, quite frankly, is 4 more than I thought I was capable of!)

Anyway, for those of you who aren’t on Instagram, here they are for your perusal….for you who ARE on Instagram, sorry….this is a re-run!

Prompt #1 poisonous

prompt #2 tranquil

prompt #3 roasted....I couldn't figure out how to make this fit the prompt....oh well....

prompt #4 spell....he was completely under my spell

prompt #5 chicken....went literal with this one (without an inkblot)

We’ll see how long I can stick to it!
