Today was pretty lazy. I didn’t do all that much. General house stuff of course, but that’s kind of a given I think. My hubby took our younger daughter to Fido in Millwoods Town Centre. While we were away at my parent’s, she accidentally broke her phone. She had it in a bag, with her towel and stuff. When she grabbed her towel, the phone came flying out with the towel and landed face down and the screen shattered. So, at Fido they used my plan, since it’s over in a couple months, to get her phone. My hubby said that we’d just have to pay for the couple of months, since we’re renewing it early. Well, she came home with a brand new iPhone 7!! I was surprised, because my hubby said it’d probably just be a 6 and he’d have to pay for anything else. But, nope, they “traded” in her cracked one and got her a free 7. So, she had better take care of this one. And, hopefully nothing happens to mine, be because I can no longer trade mine in!! I hope it works out. It leaves me feeling a bit worried. I’ve taken good care of my phone for two years and she gets rewarded for that…hmmm…I hope it works out! I like my phone. I’ve been quite happy with it. I just liked having the security in the back of my mind that we had it covered if anything ever happened to it. I hope it’s okay. It’s been fine up until now, so hopefully it’ll continue to be so. My hubby said if I want her to get mine and I get the new one that would be fine. But I’d lose 1/2 my memory space, as this is a 64gig and that’s a 32gig. Also, I have the plus and I like the big size. I have crappy eyes and big hands, so it works well for me. So, I guess that I just cross my fingers that everything works out.
While they were in the city and my son was at his friend’s house, I did some painting. I started with some old paper that I found in my bag and it made me realize that my art instructor was right about paper quality. She said that, when she’s asked what is most important, paper, paint or brush quality, she always always says paper quality! Well, I saw that today!! I guess I’ve been spoiled, using her good paper, because the stuff I used this afternoon worked like crap!! The colours didn’t flow together at all!! Watercolour paints are supposed to flow and mix with the water. All this did was suck into the paper. The colours didn’t blend or mix or anything!! It was crappy!! I couldn’t get anything to “work” like she showed us. It was awful!! I was shocked by the difference. It has never done that to me. I haven’t tried the sheet that’s still at my parent’s (obviously…) or any of the paper from Ursula, but all I can say is anything would be better than this!! The pictures that I tried on that paper are just garbage!! Bye bye crappy paper!!! I wanted to try a bigger size of the northern lights that she taught us and boy oh boy, it didn’t work! No wonder she provides paper! If all of my paintings looked like those, I could see giving up and thinking I can’t do this. Instead of still enjoying it and hoping for success.
After painting, my son came home from his friend’s. He and I played our balloon game for a while. Then I got supper together. My oldest has to get up early for work tomorrow and needed to eat supper and go to bed. So I made a quick supper for us. After supper, my hubby and I watched Bay Watch. We thought it might be funny. It was okay. I’ve definitely seen better! It had it’s moments where it gained a laugh from me. But, it’s not an addition to my top ten or anything!! It’s dumb late! I’ve been staying up too late all week!! I really need to go to bed. So…that’s what I’m going to do! Night All! 💤😴
