Daily Prompt: My Eye Today Is On This Artwork

Daily Prompt: The Artist’s Eye

Is there a painting or sculpture you’re drawn to?
What does it say to you? Describe the experience.
(Or, if art doesn’t speak to you, tell us why.)

Photographers, artists, poets: show us ART.

Love This

This painting kept begging me to buy it and when I got to the cash register the price was incredible and an amazing fit  for my guest room.

Daily Prompt: Art Appreciation in the South

Daily Prompt: Art Appreciation

Do you need to agree with an artist’s lifestyle or politics to appreciate their art? To spend money on it

Van Gogh cut off his ear, does not mean that I do not appreciate his work.

We have a wall dedicated to Southern Artists and Art that we have spent money on.  It is a reflection of where we live.


Our Art Wall

Our Art Wall

Even though I have not painted that room yet and remodeled it, we started this wall.  The idea was a true inspiration to make a theme for our guest room.



Our Guitars

Our Guitars

Love This

Once the room is complete it will feel comfortable and a great reflection of the South.

Daily Prompt: Walls the Second Time Around

Daily Prompt: Wall to Wall

What do you display on the walls of your home — photos, posters, artwork, nothing?
How do you choose what to display?
What mood are you trying to create?

I am not certain if it is due to my hubby and I being two households come together or if it is just that by the time you are starting over for the second time life is different.

We do not have the newlywed look in our home of blank walls.  We have the it was here and hers are added look.  Our Kitchen and Dining area are combined and are not very large.  They look country.  The decor is such that we are in the country and the kitchen matches.

The television room looks like something out of a hunting lodge.  Old fashioned popcorn poppers over a fireplace.  Wildlife pictures on the wall as well as the fish that hang on the wall.  It is the room that hubby spends a lot of time in and it makes him happy.  Happy hubby helps.

damn cat

Our bedroom I just redecorated so it is probably the only modern room in the house.  A nice remake of Van Gogh’s Starry Night hangs so that is the last thing we see at night and first in the morning.
That room is simply decorated.  Just a few shelves with a plant on one and a few paintings that match the decor.


Our home is still a work in progress just as our marriage is.  Although we are older, we still are a work in progress and each room will some day express us.

What does your home say about you?  Would love to hear.

Here are what other Daily Prompt Writer’s had to say on the subject:

  1. Sad Things (# 1) Where is the Cat? | The Happy Hermit
  2. Wall to Wall, or Alternatively, One of the Reasons Living in a Garage Sucks | Storm In A B-Cup
  3. black sheep wall | Bubonicboon
  4. Daily prompt: wall to wall | Taking time, making time
  5. Wall To Wall | Travellin’ Thru Rambles

I actually wrote a little later today so that there would be a few more prompt writers to add.  Hope that you enjoy.


Daily Prompt: Books I read over again without Boredom

Daily Prompt: Second Time Around

Tell us about a book you can read again and again without getting bored — what is it that speaks to you?

In a few words, that would be my cookbooks and crochet books.  I use these as resource books and when bored I do sit and read them when I am not feeling up to reading a novel or a book of non-fiction.

I am a member of Good Reads as you can tell by my side wall.  I have been stagnant on two books for a while.  They are great books and very interesting.
I just have too busy of a life right at the moment to just sit and read.

sit and read
When all of my projects are finished, or I happen to get a magic genie who gives me a huge claw foot soaker tub, then I might be persuaded to take the time to sit in a hot tub and relax with a good book.

the tub
Right now we have a baby tub as our bathroom was designed for a family who stood under 5′.
We installed the hand held shower so that we can at least enjoy a decent shower without bending down to take it.

When the claw foot tub or soaker tub arrives then perhaps life will be different..that is on the list, right behind the hot water heater and the dishwasher.

claw foot tub 1


What is the book that you constantly find yourself reading?  Besides the Bible.
I did not include that one because most of us do that on a regular basis as a given.
Would love to hear.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Forward

Weekly Photo Challenge: Forward

by michelle w. on February 22, 2013

Recently, I was lucky enough to visit the Alhambra, the majestic hilltop Islamic palace that commands the skyline of Granada, Spain. Intricate stone pathways meander through the grounds, drawing you deeper into the lush gardens and millenium-old buildings.


Stone PathwayPlayful yet insistent, I went where the paths beckoned, marveling at walking on the same stones as 12th-century emirs, trying to feel the history through the soles of my shoes.

I was struck not just by the time and craftspersonship that went into creating these miles of paths stone by tiny stone, but also by the way the designs pulled me forward and urged me to keep exploring, even as my feet begged for a respite.

In a new post specifically created for this challenge, share a picture that says FORWARD to you.

Perhaps it’s a path you yourself have taken, the building where you’re starting a great new job, or the curve of your partner’s pregnant belly. It could be an image that shows a physical move, or something that evokes a major life change. We look forward (ha!) to your interpretations.

002 (3) ?????????????????????? new roof 104


We have moved forward after the storm to a stronger roof and are putting the pieces back together.

Our entire neighborhood is working together to clean up the mess.  Trees down all over and damaged properties that insurance did not cover.  The community is helping to cover the difference.

What have you had in your life that has made you move forward?  Let me know.

Daily Prompt: A Plot Of Earth Would Be Heaven Sent

Daily Prompt: A Plot of Earth

by michelle w. on February 20, 2013

You’re given a plot of land and have the financial resources to do what you please. What’s the plan?

I am hoping that it is the plot of land adjacent to our home. 

Front yard front half

Front yard front half with our landscaper

We could extend our home since we suddenly have the resources to give us a real master bedroom and possible real bathroom en suite there.  Right now there is just a sink and potty.

The rest of the land we would allow to grow as it is or rent it to farmers in the area to use.


Daily Prompt: Normal Means? Are we Far From Normal?

Daily Prompt: Far From Normal

Many of us think of our lives as boringly normal, while others live the high life. Take a step back, and take a look at your life as an outsider might. Now, tell us at least six unique, exciting, or just plain odd things about yourself.



 adjective \ˈnȯr-məl\

: perpendicularespecially : perpendicular to a tangent at a point of tangency
a : according with, constituting, or not deviating from a norm, rule, or principle

b : conforming to a type, standard, or regular pattern

: occurring naturally <normal immunity>
a : of, relating to, or characterized by average intelligence or development

b : free from mental disorder : sane

a of a solution : having a concentration of one gram equivalent of solute per liter

b : containing neither basic hydroxyl nor acid hydrogen<normal silver phosphate>

c : not associated <normal molecules>

d : having a straight-chain structure <normal butyl alcohol>

of a subgroup : having the property that every coset produced by operating on the left by a given element is equal to the coset produced by operating on the right by the same element
: relating to, involving, or being a normal curve or normal distribution <normal approximation to the binomial distribution>
of a matrix : having the property of commutativity under multiplication by the transpose of the matrix each of whose elements is a conjugate complex number with respect to the corresponding element of the given matrix
— nor·mal·i·ty  noun
— nor·mal·ly  adverb
  1. We are when we are not sleeping and are up and walking.
  2. We definitely have a set pattern to our daily life.
  3. Our lives seem to occur naturally.  We go with the flow of the day.
  4.  a; We both have college degrees.  That seems to almost give us average intelligence.   b.  Still in debate on this one
  5. Do not think this is applicable in our situation.
  6. When we do not have trouble with our ears, we seem to have our balance.
  7. Life does seem to flow quite nicely.
  8. Once I figure out what this one was really saying in normal terms I might be able to answer it.

Normal is always in the eye of the beholder.  What is normal for one family is different for another.  Our days of running the children to school, practice, rushing home to make dinner, doing homework, giving baths, etc. are over.  Now our pets determine what is the normal routine in our home.

What is normal in your life.  Do you see a different normal in 5 or 10 years?  Leave me a comment and tell me.

Thank you for reading.

Daily Prompt: Something I know I should do yet will not

Daily Prompt: Shoulda Woulda Coulda

by michelle w. on February 13, 2013

Tell us about something you know you should do . . . but don’t.

My Kitchen needs a really bad make over.  The cabinets are solid wood so I would like to reuse them in the make over.  With all of the rain we have had and are having, it would be impossible to take them down and redo them outside.  I do not want the mess in the house to redo them in here.  Especially since right now I can’t open windows for ventilation.

To redo the position of the kitchen to give me more counter space would change the new flooring that we put in around the existing pattern.

Instead of painting

Instead of painting

Lack of funding is my other issue.  After the tornado and storm damage, we have the roof fixed and the apple tree removed.  That is all of the repairs we have been able to do so far.

This project is on a back burner for a while and I am doing what I can with what I have.

What is going on with your life that you should be doing and will wait or will not be doing?

Would love to hear.

Daily Prompt: Teachable Moment Is All About Hands On

Daily Prompt: Teachable Moment

by michelle w. on February 10, 2013

You have to learn a new skill. Do you prefer to read about it, watch someone else do it, hear someone describe it, or try it yourself?

Not only am I a “Hands on Learner”, I also teach the same way.  This post is just above two about my newest student.  It fits in so nicely.


There was a time back in the stone ages when I was just going through a divorce and could not afford to have plumbers, carpenters or electricians coming to the house to fix things.  So, I went to the local B.O.C.E.S. and took a Basic Electronics I & II Course.  If some basic wiring went wrong in the house or I had to change an outlet, a switch or  wanted to upgrade a lamp I could.

The local hardware store was wonderful.  They were only a phone call away.  My plumbing woes were solved.  I would walk in with a diagram of what was wrong and what I needed with the measurements and they would talk me through it with all the supplies.  If I hit a glitch when I got home, the speaker phone was on speed dial.

Since I did not own a car and had a really long driveway and an empty garage, a friend of mine asked if I would like to make some extra cash.  Hmm. Single mom, two teenage daughters and lots of formal dances to go to… First question, what am I doing? Second Question, Is it totally legal?

He changed out engines and his hands were so big that it was difficult to get into different areas.  I was his extra pair of hands.  With a set of overhauls and hair in a hat, I climbed into the truck.  With a can of WD40, I could loosen anything and get into the areas that were tiny with my long fingers.

When my daughters were older, I found myself going back to college as I needed some type of degree to get a decent job.  To work while I was going to school was difficult.  I decided to tutor while going to school.  I was supposed to tutor Anatomy and Physiology however, I found myself tutoring Computer 101 and English as well as Spanish.

Now I am taking my domestic skills and teaching others with a hands on approach.


Let me know what you think about how you learn and what style works for you.  Please take the time to answer the poll so that the readers can see the results.

Daily Prompt: Writing Room, My Virtual Room


Daily Prompt: Writing Room

by michelle w. on February 3, 2013

A genie has granted your wish to build your perfect space for reading and writing. What’s it like?

For this prompt today I went to my Virtual Store at Home Depot and to Lowes thinking that I would get my virtual room to create.  I have to admit that both stores for my bedroom and bathroom were great.  For my office, I was disappointed.  They only showed me what was available in office furniture and I could not create my virtual room for that one.
