Go on.  Ask me.  What is PWAT?

Well that’d be Painting With A Twist

Today’s feature for 18 and over was Abstract Forest.

I think I liked my painting better before I put on the leaves.  Still had fun!  My second favorite F-word.  And we’ll definitely be back.

As always, more to come.

First, I’d like to give a special mention to our out-going Stream of Consciousness Saturday badge by Mr. John Holton. As it turned out, he has the distinct honour of coming in last-place this year, perfectly balancing out his spectacular win for the 2016-2017 badge. Thank you John, for providing us with a lovely design. Let’s everyone applaud John!

John Holton 2016-2017

It was a close race this year, with one badge pulling out in front during the final hours of yesterday’s voting. Let’s start with the runners-up.

Almost tied for fourth place were Ruth’s “Zoomburst Flower” and Scott’s “Rushing Stream.”

In third, we had Judy with her last-minute entry, “Sunrise.”

In second …

was JoAnna’s “Sparkly Stream,” which means our winner with 38% of the votes goes to J-Dubs with “A River with Red Flowers”!!

Congratulations to all the contestants on your amazing efforts. Thank you for…

Princess 👸🏻 Don’t Cook Part Deuce


Lulu: Mom shame on you expecting a blind man to cook 👨‍🍳 

Me: oh now come on.  He wants to cook 👨‍🍳 Right B?

B: I’ll supervise but my eye hurts

I should’ve known. He’s not himself. When I got home 🏡 he opened the backdoor before I could even open my car door.  He’s wearing his sunglasses. He says they really help. 

He’s lookin all Tom Cruise in Risky Business.  Well he’s in shorts and a Tshirt versus undies, white socks, and button down but it think it’s the shades. For a couple hours I’ve been trying to snap a pic but he’s on to me. 😂 the featured image will have to do. 

Tonight on the menu we had burgers 🍔 and fries.  We make our fries from scratch since we got a nifty slicer from Bed Bath and Beyond. Coat the potatoes with olive oil and Slap Yo Mama spices. Bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes.  I even toasted the buns on the comal.  Look at me being all domestic.  What has come over me?!?! 😊

As always more to come. 

VOTE HERE for the 4th Annual SoCS Badge Contest Winner


The poll is open. And it’s not a political poll either. #SoCS badge contest. Take a look 👀 and cast a vote.

Linda G. Hill

It’s Thursday, and our contest is closing with six designs in the running for our 2017-2018 Stream of Consciousness Saturday Badge. The winner will have his or her badge displayed both here and all around the Internet by whomever participates in the weekly SoCS prompt.

I would normally post the outgoing badge here, but as it turns out, it’s in the running again. Therefore, I’ll let you visit John’s blog to have a look at it.

The links below will take you to the contestant’s sites, to the posts on which their badges are displayed. Please make sure you have a look at all of them before you vote! I’ll give each a descriptive name which you’ll find both with the link and on the poll for easier voting. I’m not going to vote unless there’s a tie, so it’s all up to you!

Here are the badges:

Princess 👸🏻 Don’t Cook


Except tonight she did. 

When we started out, B didn’t cook. When Lulu came along, all that changed.  I worked nights and he worked days.  He starting cooking dinner for the kids and took my recipes to a new level.  In fact, he’s a much better cook than me. 

Tonight though my boo is injured 🤕so I made dinner.  Crispy chicken tacos.  Sunday evening meal planning and prepping helped.  Chicken already ground and seasoned.  Microwave rice. Beans from a can.  The hardest part was making guacamole and shredding cheese. 

Actually dinner practically prepared itself.  And I had fun!   I knew he’d been holding out on me. Not that I’m going to want to do the cooking long term or anything 😂

As always more to come. 

Diagnosis Corneal Abrasion 


B it hurts

Me uh ya and looks awful too

B thanks

Me what’d they do?

they gave me an IV in my eye

Me omg 😲 

B not with a needle, sort of like a soft contact lens where they could run the wash solution through my eye. Uncomfortable as hell. 

B continued I wish they’d given me more numbing drops.  Those took all my pain away. 

Official diagnosis corneal abrasion. Antibiotic drops 3 times a day for a week and two days off work. I tried to snap a pic but he shooed me away 😂



Billy Bob is in the hospital in Hondo Texas.  Thinks he just needs to have his eye flushed.  Uvalde emergent care was too full 😳.  How far apart are Hondo and Uvalde anyway?!?!

Oh well, his superintendent just dropped him off.  Kenbo will hopefully swing by and pick him up on the way home.  

I offered to go get him but he says he’ll let me know.  Doh!   Such is life. 

As always more to come. 

Vehicle damaged by rain


We had lots of rain in July 2016. I wrote this on FB a year ago today.  I’d been driving around with the grill pushed in and never even realized it. 

B “Grumble grumble … Jill you really need to stop hitting curbs”

Me “uh not this time. And really I would’ve have to run straight into a pole or something. There’s no dent! It was the rain from last month I tell ya”

The above is after I went through hell (or high water 😉)

And another after my handy man fixed it.

As always more to come.
