I did enjoy a softboiled egg altho by the time I broke it open it had almost hardboiled, but it was still tasty.
Earlier in the summer my mailbox was covered with beautiful purple clematis, but not now. I'll admit I did try to go back in my archives and search for those pics with the flowers covering the mailbox, but after awhile, decided...what the heck, this is pieces of me, right now, not a couple of months ago. As you can see, the mailbox is currently empty which sometimes is a good thing....no bills, no junk mail.
OK, now is where I try and attempt the proverbial 2 birds with one stone trick....I missed posting in Trisha's Barn Charm yesterday and today is Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday, using her new texture "dreamit" which by the way, I absolutely love, so here goes the 2 birds trick....actually I did cheat a little here...I took this pic earlier in the spring, but the texture is brand new.
Oops, just hopped over to Tricia's blog and found out that her modem is down so no barn-charm this week. So those 2 birds are now one...
And just because, I am posting a couple of pics of my "thank God it's over" bathroom redo. This is the downstairs powder room. All that really happened in this room was stripping off the wallpaper and painting. The bathroom vanity had been updated a couple of years ago with a new faucet and new hardware and a new toilet was added at that time. This has now become a mini art gallery for a lot of my photography work. The extra things on the wall all have special meanings...I will post on that in the future. The color was changed from a dark forest green to this soft golden tan which matches colors in the family room. I love it...with only a change in the color it made a huge difference.
And today, in honor of the death of Phyllis Diller (I know some of you probably don't remember her, but she was a terrific comedian who was always telling jokes about her age and her marriage) I want to close with just a few of her laugh out loud "quotes". She lived to the age of 95, probably laughing all the way.
"I love to go the doctor. Where else would a man look at me and say, 'Take off your clothes?'
"You know you're getting old when your blood type's been discontinued."
"I realized on our first wedding anniversary that our marriage was in trouble. Fang (the name she gave her husband) gave me luggage. It was packed. My mother darn near suffocated."
"Whatever you may look like, marry a man your own age - as your beauty fades, so will his eyesight."
So on that note...Until next time....
