So, what was good in my week gone by. Honestly, at first glance nothing comes to mind, it was a rather bad week. However, if there are no ‘big’ things that spring to mind, start looking at smaller ones. You know that it really is the little things that make life a lot more enjoyable.

Let’s see…

Monday, well, that was an ordinary Monday.

Tuesday I got my hair colored and I am happy I can do that on a very (!) regular basis, as otherwise I’d be showing a lot of white, which, I admit can look really nice, but – I am simply not ready for it. While being there I enjoyed a bit of iPhone editing fun, the result can be seen here. Oh, Tuesday night was fun. Our office team went out for dinner, ahem, an extremely late Christmas dinner at Shanghai Jazz.

Wednesday – I was home early enough to have a nice work-out before making dinner.

Thursday – honestly, let’s just not talk about it all. Worst.day. in a long time.

Friday – got up early to see my world covered under a blanket of snow and still snowing hard. Also, recovering from Thursday, staying at work longer than I wanted to followed by grocery shopping and ending up ordering pizza for dinner.

Saturday – doing quite a bit of blogging, commenting and… working on our game, which is coming along very nicely. Work-out in the afternoon and then dinn…, not. We actually started playing WOT and kind of got sucked in and played a little longer. It was fun.

Sunday – after breakfast I started painting. While working out yesterday I had red a watercolor tutorial that I wanted to try. I have been painting with watercolors on and off since I was a kid, but there is always something new to learn, right? Apart from that I worked some more on the game graphics, had another work-out and then we made dinner, yummy fajitas, and finished the weekend watching Harry Potter part 2. Now I am finishing this post and then will fall into bed.

So, how has your week been? What have you been up to, what is your one good thing? As for my title question: What do you think my #onegoodthing was last week? And now, have a good one, All!

 *** Here is where I link up today. ***

Please help me spread the word about my Saturday Art Linkup and grab my badge below:


I hope that over time we will be building a community dedicated to art and creating. I rather like these words said by Andy Warhol:


Don’t think about making art, just get it done.

Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. 

While they are deciding, make even more art.”

Drop me a comment and you’ll make me smile!
