The benefit of blogging is that I don't have to actually REMEMBER what I was doing when a photo prompt like "five years ago" pops up. I can just go back and read about it. Which might not be a benefit. After all, my brain isn't getting much exercise when all I have to do is click a link and read all about it. Anyhoo … five years ago I painted the living room and kitchen. This is just a representative paint chip – I'm not compulsive enough to have saved one from when I actually did the painting.
The benefit of crafting is that you have random paint chips lying around for photo prompts.
I'm off to a three-hours-away city for a meeting. Might do a little shopping on the way home. Long day, no walking (insert sad face here). No walking yesterday because it was too damned cold. Spring will be here soon. I think. I HOPE!
Update on the water: the circuit breaker tripped, either due to a power surge when the electricity came back on last night OR when lightning struck in the area. My neighbor's electric fence control box got hit in the same area. He was able to reset the circuit breaker for us and we have WATER! I think I'll go do a load of laundry. Heh.
