chop suey Wednesday

Good morning everyone.  I thought I would start today to talk about laziness.  Seriously this is one of my “work on it” traits or “flaws”  Being a visual person, I woke to a perfect example to share with you.

This is a game I play on my iPhone when I am somewhere waiting, ie. for a dental, or doctor’s appointment.  Now that I no longer have an iPad, having gone for a phone with a bigger screen, you know the size of the screen I am working on.  Interestingly, the game on my computer is the same but not the same, my computer being a Windows format.

When I began on the iPhone/Pad, I had to start all over with a new café, in this new format. Fun I thought I can do something totally different.  Off to the races I went, enjoying myself, watching my money grow etc.  However, I don’t have the friends to play with in this format, but lots through the game.  I digress.

Last night I decided to start decorating for the Chinese New Year, which will be coming up soon in mid February. *year of the Dog* (lunar calendar)  The program suggested I take a picture to show my friends, I took a picture and sent it to myself.

To my horror when I looked at the picture this morning, I was assaulted with the glaring objects of my laziness.

  1. I didn’t clean up the floors before taking the picture
  2. I saw where I had started to change my servers and didn’t go back to make sure all of them were done.  In fact, I used some from my inventory rather than buy the shiny metal ones that go with my  décor ..( frugal and lazy)
  3. The tips could have been collected, but in truth I didn’t see them, again, I didn’t take the time to look

Small over sights maybe, but in my case, I lean towards lazy, we all do, intention is to go back and fix it, but as the days go along, and since it is only me playing, none of my guests to this site, are known to me… bla bla bla… excuses.  After making time to fix up the café, start on my remodel, I take a picture .. and voila. caught on camera…

We just never know do we.  this is a fun example, but it IS an example, we never know, taking short cuts, neglecting to do something “just because”.  A camera never lies the results can be photo-shopped or edited,  but lens itself, never lies.

Thursday doors – “doors”

Sharon Springs,NY

I don’t know whether to thank Norm or not.  I have alway had a “love” for doors.  From early years I collected pictures of doors, admired doors and bla bla bla….  but with his little challenge, it has  put “focus” on doors again, in a sense that I see a door and wonder.. hmmm will do this for the challenge..

My husband and I for some odd reason, have taken to a game on Facebook called Cafeland.  It is a cute game, we have a restaurant and we make food, sell to customers and of course, build the business and you make money, and if you keep at it, your money of course builds.  I began playing the game years ago, when I first began in FB, I soon tired of it, being too busy with commitments etc. in my day to day, and my friends had basically moved on to other games.

What I didn’t know my husband who does not play games, except Scrabble and Word with Friends, who had started a restaurant to help me while I was playing, liked seeing the $$ add up, so he just over the years kept playing,  Long and the short of it is, thar when a new friend learned about Cafeland, she started to play and I reopened my cafe so that I could help her with the challenges.  WELL  Hubby was now way ahead of me in not only points but in $$$.  He’d built up a fortune.

I began to play regularly again, to try to catch up, but with years under his belt, he is just too far ahead in points and he has managed his money so that, I think there is just too much there to work through. So being the considerate wife, I offered to remodel his cafe ….evil grin….   knowing his wife, kind husband says sure, and leaves me to it on his computer and with his accumulated fortune. hehehehehehehe.. pulls my witches hat further down on my head.

window-to-the-past

I redid all the floors, walls, put in new windows, decor, and still he has millions and millions left over.  I even put in new DOORS.. two of them.  Here you go Norm… it is while I’m looking at the doors, what to put in, that I get this little “ping”   I start wondering if I can use the  doors in Cafeland, in Norm’s Thursday doors.  Norm!! what have you started.
