It’s time to paint again, this time the living room, kitchen and dining area. Might take me awhile, but if I never start I’ll never finish.

The samples I’ll try: Park Avenue, Burnished Clay & Doeskin Gray. These are browns, by the way.

Have I told you how much I love little Behr sample pots? Yeah, well. We all gotta be somewhere. 😉

Nose Prints

It’s not as if I never clean the glass, but…

…and Badger, sulking because I’m using the iPad on the sofa. She won’t come near it for some reason.

Drop it and I’ll come back!


Sophie Westerhof is an intelligent young adult, addicted to new experiences. Do something more than 5 times and she’s bored.

She’s bored a LOT.

But not when hiking.
Or skiing.
But she does look a bit bored when she comes off the ski slope.

I’m afraid to send her to university; she’d just find the repetitious homework a big snooze.

Walking Lady

Walking Lady in Brindleton Bay

One of the few redeeming features in the Sims 4 is canine adoration. Lady (the only rough collie in my game) has been with Elle through young adulthood and university. Elle recently graduated with a Psychology degree at Britechester.

When they go for a walk I follow them and watch Lady watching her mistress. It calms me for some reason.

Whatever it takes, right?


The Brindleton Bay docks at night.

Sims 4.

I dunno; my brain is stuck therefore I cannot think of anything else. Oh, not sims. Another sister popped up, a lovely person who will probably visit this summer. Well, you know the Cracker Box. I’m mentally rebuilding the thing; painting, new rugs, some plants…. a new master bath redo would be grand, since I took a sledgehammer to the original and it sits… like a demented shell of the room it was… with a toilet. I would never take out a toilet willy-nilly.

What was I saying? Oh, yeah. Sims.

Brindleton Bay

It’s hard to tell with such a small picture, but mornings in the Sims can be beautiful.

I heard they’re starting work on Sims 5, God help us. I’d rather they re-tool one of the iterations that really worked, game play wise. Sims 4 beauty with Sims 3 game play.


I was breaking in the new grill last night with kabobs when the dark crept up. I could barely see the grill, but the sky was alight with pink tendrils to the south and sun setting in the west.

The picture doesn’t do it justice. Not even close.

Bottom left you can see the pollen laden tree that’s trying to kill me.
