Slappin' an Slickin"

Whether you're inclined to get dizzy or not, I don't think too many of you would care to spend too much time painting ceilings. If you read yesterday's post you will have 'seen' me industriously painting our secondary bathroom a cheerful yellow. Well, you know how it goes; one thing leads to another and it didn't take long to discover that the ceiling needed a touch up also. (And yes, I am typing this with dabs of paint on my fingers.) My head doesn't care to be up-tilted all that long so I developed an excuse to go a-blogging. Hey, all you people that are are impassively sitting in buses, trains, and what-not's need something to read, something to think about for a few minutes so here you go! And here I go back to slapping (??!!) on paint and slicking up the bathroom. My, but it's beginning to look bright and new in there!
Have a good day, folks!
That's about the color of my hair but I sure ain't quite that young lookin' ! Just add some laugh lines around the eyes and a pair o glasses and it will be a little more like it. lol

Don't Forget to Look

There was a streak of vivid orange behind the trees early this morning. What a tremendous contrast to our narrow, dark strip of woodland. I went out to say goodbye to Stephen and our youngest daughter before they motored off to their jobs in the city.
                Hadn’t seen much of daughter o’ mine the day before with her tight schedule, and everything, so went over to her window; “Haven’t see much of you lately. “
“No, I’ve been terribly busy: and tired.” She kept fiddling with her cell phone. (Sound familiar?)
“Just look at the gorgeous sky.” Her eyes flickered upwards.
“Yeah, it is pretty.”
Soon they were gone.
