Beauty in the Ordinary

This is not about being brilliant, or extraordinary, it's not about wanting to be famous, or making headlines, or trying to impress...this about sharing a 'gift' each day with the world...to lift the spirit of people when they read this blog, to show them the beauty in the ordinary.
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." Raold Dahl

Wallying Around

J.  We have a new term in our family lexicon...'wallying around'.  I thought we were being terribly original, but it seems there is already a definition.  According to the Urban Dictionary...wallying around means:

to drive around aimlessly with nothing to do

I actually prefer to use it more akin to 'faffing around', which again the UD defines as:

to muck about, wasting time doing something not necessary.

So there you have it...your choice, but it's almost the weekend so wally or faff, relax, enjoy!

  2. Me too! One shoe closet done! If I can convince Rudy to measure the double hanging thingy, I'll have the master bedroom closet finished today and then it will be wallying all weekend for me too. I'm doing nothing and going nowhere!

  5. Interesting about the high-gloss Chiana...my painter tells me as of October this year, in Canada, oil-based paint is going to be banned. Now I know you can get sort-of high gloss in latex, but it just doesn't have the richness of oil-based.
    I'm going out to stock up on oil-based for re-painting...putting latex over oil is not easy!
