10 Things

Crystal over at Straight On Till Morning does these 10 Things on Tuesday posts… kind of like my Friday Fives but on steroids. Her first link up today is excellent timing because I’m all sorts of scattered and I can’t really craft full, coherent posts right now.

1. I feel guilty for long lapses in blogging. A few days may not seem like a long lapse but to me it is. That’s part of why I wanted to post today, even though I didn’t have time to finish my intended post (our trip to Niagara Falls).

2. I’d like it to rain for a little bit one evening this week. A couple of weeks ago when we had a ton of rain, tornadoes and flooding, I was inspired to do a refashion related to rain gear. Now it’s been clear and beautiful after work so I’m unable to take the after photos that I want.

Life without a bathroom mirror


My blank wall

We recently moved into a rental home where the bathroom has just been redone. The bathroom guy didn’t realize that “finished” meant the mirror should be hung. So the mirror hasn’t been hung yet and we aren’t quite sure whose job it is to hang it.

Things are definitely different without the mirror. Think about it, who do you look at when you brush your teeth? Do you do a quick check of your hair or teeth when you wash your hands?

Without a mirror, your attention will be drawn elsewhere… away from yourself!

And as a side note: we’ve taken to making faces at each other while we brush our teeth.
