It’s Saturday night and I’m having a swinging time. I worked hard all day and am enjoying a glass of wine and watching Property Brothers on HGTV. Swinging, I tell ya.
Between my son and I, we got the walls done in the new bathroom. Tomorrow we do the trim. Yes, I should have taken before photos but it had been two months since it was used; it had no water and I couldn’t clean it, so it was gross. I did take a movie with my DSLR after the plumbers fixed the leak and while it was all torn apart, so I can use that as a base. And I’ll show you photos of the finished product.
I also got all of the Christmas stuff away, which is a huge relief. I didn’t think I put that much out (and I didn’t) but when it was all gathered together and ready to pack away, it looked like a lot. In between chores, I played with a new app that I downloaded on my work cell phone, which is an iPhone. It’s called Waterlogue and I actually paid a few dollars for it, but it’s so worth it. It takes your cell phone photo and turns it into a painting. There are about a dozen different styles to choose from and it’s just so much fun.
Here’s some examples ~
This is probably my favorite. After I got the house back together and cleaned in the living room, I put back my floral arrangement in the front window. The curtain on the left looks like a different color only because the light was coming in on that side. But I think it looks really pretty.
I took this one last night at a restaurant in town. I went with my friend (and boss), Christine and we met up with a bunch of her friends. Scored a seat at the sofa right in front of the fire. And the owner sent over these fabulous appetizers. This is a photo of Christine’s French onion soup and her glass of hard cider. The glass was full so I don’t know why it looks like it isn’t, but still kind of cool.
George outside this morning, hopeful for a game of fetch. I was wrapped in a blanket and my winter coat and everything I needed to keep warm. But at 12 degrees, my coffee went cold so I came inside.
I took a picture of the sun coming up before going in, though.
And looking East.
I am not a fan of selfies, and this one is kind of weird. But I’m brave and putting it out there.
Because this app is just too cool.

Last night was fun. We went to a gallery across the street before going to the restaurant/bar to meet her friends. At the bar, one of the couple’s sons was about to go on the stage to perform. He did a fabulous rendition of Bob Dylan’s Don’t Think Twice It’s Alright. And you know what? It all felt right.
Hope your weekend’s are going well. I’ve got a Netflix movie on tap that just arrived in my mailbox today. It’s an oldie so this will be interesting: Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore with Ellen Burstyn and Kris Kristofferson and a very young Jodie Foster. Should be interesting . . .
Sorry I haven’t done anything about that Giveaway yet. I promise that it’s still happening though. I just need to find more photos for my etsy site and there are lots to go through ~
Thanks for stopping by.
