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.

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: 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.
