Happy Fri-Yayyyyyy Everyone!
The days continue to surprise and entertain in perplexity which always require comic relief, so I don’t go mad. Seriously, I’m always surprised by what seems so logical and a no brainer to me, that isn’t clear to others. It continues to remind me of Murphy’s law and how anything and everything can go wrong. This is especially true in the world of contracting. I can imagine now how many of you laughed at me when I first started this project and was so excited and my contractors could do no wrong.
Yesterday’s word prompt on Twitter was Pot. They have a 365 day prompt so you could play every week if you wanted to by I’m so busy, I’ve alloted Thursday to play and the word was pot and I thought “I’ve got nothing” but as I sat with it for a bit the words made their way to the page, prompted by the night before when we went in to check out our project and walked into our toilet in the new bathroom, after they hung the door. Slight problem, you couldn’t bypass the toilet and close the door because there wasn’t enough room. We were like, “why didn’t they put and outswing door instead of having it open into the room”.
I called our architect and he said “I specced this for a small wall mount toilet, so it won’t work with a regular toilet.” We were irate and perplexed as this was never told to us, nor was it written on the plans. We truly couldn’t fathom how this happened and there was no communication about this. It’s an easy enough fix to turn the door around to an outswing, even if it won’t swing in the direction we would like, unless we buy a new door. At this point we’ll cut our losses, and live with it and see how it goes instead of pouring more money into it.
So here is my Twitter Poem I came up with on the word Pot that made me at least laugh a lot through the day which I was grateful for, since there have been so many snafus daily. I have to keep my sanity somewhere. You can see it by clicking the link above and check out others as well. Would love you to follow me there as well if you are so inclined as I don’t post them on WP as a general rule of thumb. Visit when you can on my site The Unique Times with Cindy. ☺️💕💖

With Twitter the fun part is it is only 233 characters max, so you it forces you to be quick and succinct. It’s a fun way to get my mind to work in a different way and know it’s finite. You might want to consider joining in on occasion as well, Some people play everyday which is amazing to me.
Here’s the picture of the tight bathroom squeeze:
We are nearing our final phase of this project with a move in date of July 15th our Anniversary and the finish work is the fun part. hmmmm 🤷♀️
Have a peek at the progress:
Emojiku with Suzette:
As most of you know Goff James has been on a break from posting and hasn’t been playing with our Emojiku’s at the moment, so I decided to post one that Suzette posted and play along called Room in View Haiku 2022
Suzette B does amazing work in poetry, prompts and stories with gorgeous and clever imagery so do visit her when you get a chance. Goff is the master of Haiku and the driving force behind the posting and I wanted to honor his presence today along with Suzette’s brilliance.

What is emojiku?
The emojiku came about by Cindy Georgakas and Goff playing emoji tennis in the WP comments box. It was a natural step to take it one stage further and develop from being just a fleeting form of discourse into something more poetically constructive.
An emojiku is a hybrid poetic form, and is similar in format to a haiku / senryū or haiga. However there are no strict restrictive set rules. The format is open and fluid.
In the case of an emojiku the source image is an emoji. The emojiku is made up of at least three different emoji. Each emoji being the inspiration for one line of the short poem.
The process of creating an emojiku begins by a blogger sending three different emoji to a fellow blogger.
The second blogger responds by writing their emojiku and forwarding it back to the original blogger; who, in turn responds by writing a counterpoint emojiku using the same emoji images.
Join in the Emojiku fun and share
Today’s Prompts are
🌹 🌱 🌿 🙋 ✍️ 🦅 🙏 📝 🎇 🔮
Have a wonderful Friday and Weekend and remember to go with the flow, even when it’s panting and roaring through your breathwork. Take each moment and stay present remembering there are always opportunities to laugh amidst the craziness. I’m heading to the park today to teach a group Meditation and Qigong which makes my heart sing. Find extraordinary moments in the ordinary and have some fun amidst the chaos.
Keep your sense of humor, it’s critical! 😂 This reminds me of the movie “The Money Pit.”
You are so right Scott!!! Oh that is so right on! 😂😂😂 T.Y.
WOW Cindy, I suggest you give some “pot” 🚬 to your workers and see if they can do something about that door. 🚪 I don’t know girlfriend. Can’t they do something about the hinges? That is really a TIGHT squeeze for sure. Other than that your renovation is looking really good. I know you wished you had the powers of Bewitched so you could have it all done already. LOL 🤣😝😂
Have a beautiful FUNyay Friday my dawwwwlinkkkk! Here’s lookin’ at you kid! 😎🌺😘🥰🌟🤩💖🥳
😂😂😂 that’s the best idea yet.. one comes stoned but he hasn’t been here for awhile.. maybe I request him.. lol. 😂
What about a half door so you can see out the window and just pull. I will be up for hours thinking about it but won’t loose any sleep over it cuz there’s more. lol.
Yes, you’re so right.. once a Genie in a bottle, always that’s how we roll, but we are only human. 💖
I will and you do the same dearie!💖
Lord Cindy, you NEVER have a dull moment girlfriend. 🤩💋😂 Yet somehow you manage to keep your sanity….or do you???? 🤔 Hmmmm…..🤣😲😝
Hugs and smooches ladybug! 🤗💋😘🌺😊
hahaahahhaha me sane? Just ask my kids.. 😂 I try though! Thanks my friend💖💖💖
You need lots of sense of humor to get through mixups like this.
Cindy you are indeed blessed finding ways to look up into the light rather than down at circumstances. Your positive energy and outlook is inspiring. Hope that all goes well for the deadline of your anniversary.
Love your poems and the photo of the “potted plant”🤣
Thank you for the mention and joining in the “Room in View” with your delightful emojiku reply. Happiness in a few syllables…Well done, my friend.
It’s fantastic. I loved it so much❤❤❤❤😊😊😊😊. Happy weekend, dear Cindy. Sharing lots of fun, love and laughter.
Thank you so much Aparna! Happy to hear and happy weekending to you too! Enjoy! 💖💖
OMG! A wall mount commode? That is just like a silly architect. Wall mount toilets are easy to clean under. There is no excuse for getting the size of the wet room wrong so the door won’t close. Seems like you need some pot from the pot. Looking good otherwise. Nice no pot to pee in poem.
I know right Tim! Seriously, I truly have never have even guessed that as even possible. I didn’t no if it was a cultural thing or what. Then I heard that night at the coed softball game that our neighbors had one as a space saver or a small room. Key room small room. Good idea for a tiny tiny space. I sooo agree and this is just one of many faux paus. it’s hair pulling truly. It sure does right?! I is all coming together which is a relief that the materials and workmanship are good. Glad you liked my poem.. 💖
oh Cindy, with renovations there is always something someone forgot to mention.
I hope it is smooth sailing from here.
oh the closet – picture me swooning!!!
Blessings to you!
It’s soooo true Ana Star. Amazing to me. I’m hoping so too. You and me both. Hoping it all fits.. lol 💖 Thanks and happy weekend to you too1 💖
Ha! Pot in a pot! At least you have “a pot (potty) to piss in.” As my mom used to say. Yeah the builder should fix this. Ugh. Love your sense of humor!! ❤️😉
😂 I was rather amused and happy with it all and glad you found it funny too Sheila!!! Your mom was right… they should but will they.. lol💖💖😘
Hahaha! A comic relief….happy renovating! Hope you can move in on your anniversary
😂😂😂 Thanks so much Sheereen. Well the bed comes on July 19th.. details details. lol. 💖
It happens, Cindy, with such projects, but I appreciate your sense of humour. We have to take Murphy’s law in our own stride. Project, except toilet, seems to be progressing well. Liked your Twitter poems. Have a fun-filled weekend 🎉💐💗
It sure does and this is just a small portion of the “fun” this week! 😂!
The finished product will be great and that is the main thing for sure. Glad you liked my Twitter poem. I did have fun with that! 💖I will and you have a great one as well! T.Y.! 💖
You’re welcome, Cindy, always 💖💐
Happy Friyayyy, Cindy. The renovations seems great with the exception of the mishap, hoping it’s all done soon. You have had such a wonderful and positive attitude towards this project, truly inspiring, my friend. Love the poems and pictures. Have a fabulous weekend.💕
Thanks my fun Fri-yayyyy Girl grace. Yes, they are coming along for sure with gorgeous materials and workmanship. awww thanks a lot.. These projects are not for the weary that’s for sure. Glad you enjoyed the poems and pics!!! You have a great one as well! 💖💖
My pleasure ,Cindy.💕🙏💕

Glad you think so!! 💖💖🙏
I sure do. ^_^
Cindy and Suzette, a soothing poem in colors of water. Beautiful! <3
As for the door issue, do you have space for a pocket door? or convert that gorgeous door into a "barn door?" The finishes are lovely, and the built-in storage looks great. I love the leaded glass and the skylight! The door is a "bummer!" Hope you can fix it. <3 Have a great weekend!
Thank you Cheryl. It was fun to chime in with her for sure. 🌊🌊🌊
I wish we did as I love pocket doors but therenowhereere for it to slide into. Go figure. I LOVE, LOVE barn doors but same issue there. I’m pleased with the finishes too, thanks. I do think we have lots of storage so that’s a good thing. We might not even need a door so there’s that?!!!!💖💖
A wall mount toilet in a tiny space? Good thing you’re so flexible. 😆 Never without its challenges, but it looks like your project is moving along. Best wishes! Happy early anniversary!
Yes, bendy Cindy.. lol.. my husband is not.. more like Grumpy Gregg on this one.. lol. It certainly isn’t without challenges but you’re right it is moving along and thanks for your wishes. 💖💖
haha I imagine it is quite frustrating. 😒 It’s always something with remodeling or life in general. It helps to laugh, but a toilet is a most important need!
😂 Yes indeed,, thanks again! 💖
You have my empathy on your remodeling project. Remodeling and building are stressful to say the least. I love your pot in a bidet.😄 This project will be amazing once completed. Hang in there. 😊😉💗🙏
💖💖 John 💖💖
Thanks my friend.. you get it and are soooo right. You just summed it up so well. I’m so glad you liked that.. that kept me laughing for the last few days, thankfully.
I think it will too fingers crossed. 💖💖💖😘😘😘 T.Y.
Aha! You’ll have a good bed 😉
There you go.. never mind the pee pot.. 😂
Cindy, good luck on meeting your anniversary date deadline. And, happy anniversary in advance. Keith
Thanks a lot Keith.
Sleeping bags on the floor.. it might be..
Much appreciated! 💖
Oh, Lordy, girlfriend! That will never do and you’ll never do the doo-doo, too!! Turn the door around for now (I know exactly what you mean; we had a kitchen cabinet that was useless the way the door was hung). How do these contractors put something up knowing it ain’t right and will never work and not fix it or, at the very least, say something?! It’s mind-boggling! Love your poem and that graphic is perfect. Pot in a pot (I did not inhale!) lol. Big hugs, Cindy G! Have a great weekend! 💕 🤗 🌿 🚽 🤣
Darling, don’t you know it.. “It’s mind-boggling!” is the word!!!!
oh you feel my pain then and know what I’m going through. It’s a daily experience..
Do I look confused? 😂😂😂
gotta “swing” with it. pass me the bananas 😂
Thanks.. glad you liked my poem .. hahaha. I’m working on it .. so good so far.. they come at 9 so I’ve got until then 😂
You do the same G.F.!!!
A lovely post all around. Wow! That bathroom looks like a tight fit indeed. The joys and hardships of projects. 😅 Wishing you a gorgeous weekend, my dear. 🥰❤️
Thanks Jeff and I know right?!!! A ladder and a window.?. haha. Let’s just say, it keeps me on my toes. Thanks and you have a great one as well! 🌹💖😘
You’re welcome, Cindy. Ah, seriously! I’m sure it does. Thank you! 🌹😘💖
mmmmmmuuuuuuuuuwha!!! Happy Saturday!! 💖😎😎
Actually, you don’t have to feel bad, although the door hinges may require you to.
Against all odds, the house really has a beautiful outlook and inlook ❤️
Time to rewind your sense of humor 😊
Thanks so much for your comment as I unhinge for the moment and laugh.
I appreciate that.. I am liking the overall result.
My sense of humor is all that keeps me going at the moment. Thanks and have a great day! 💖
You are welcome.
You will surely pack in soon.
Let the work continue with faith ❤️
Great recipe for success. thanks much once again! 💖
A lovely post all around, Cindy. Wow! That bathroom looks like a tight fit indeed. The joys and hardships of projects and we have to monitor all the works too. Cindy you are awesome. Wishing you a gorgeous weekend, my dear. Nice pictures.

Thanks David! I think I should have put that first.. Glad you noticed that.. xo 💖💖

Okay, how did you find that picture of my toilet?? Lol! 😂
Hahahahaha.. can you process this for me and bottle and send. I will need it for the duration of the project.. 😂😂
If I could I would 😫😅
😂😂😂 The thought means a lot! 💖👏🙏🙏🙏
Nice renovation, dear Cindy👍😃 and can see your creativity too😉 Good Luck!! 👍
Thanks so my Saima! I’m happy with how it’s coming along. WE need it, that’s for sure! 💖💖🌹🌹🙏
Best of Luck, dear Cindy💕👍for all that you are doing ( this project of renovation)🙂
Awww thanks my friend!! 💖
The toilet bowl flower pots are a little gross to me – but also super fun! and I have a photo of a real one but couldn’t find it to share –
Anyhow – I liked your poem for twister and the challenge sounds fun!
Also / you have a great attitude with the current door situation and fingers crossed the 15th works out for move in
Well, I was happy to find anything and that too 30 min to find so I’d love yours for another time but hope I don’t need it. 😂 Oh I’m glad you did and I at least maintained my sense of humor .. whatever’s left of it. 😂😂
Awww that’s I’ve groaccustomedmed by now to it all. I think the 19th is the day at this point. Thanks so much. 💖💖💖
Okay / the 19th….

Awesome And I will add it to my blog too
Oh very cool!
sooo good Thanks so much for sharing .. these are beautiful!~! 💖💖👏👏
Love your pot in the pot photo. Looks like your about wrapped up with your remodel. The bathroom door would probably take a whole new prehung door to swing out, which could be done. You just don’t see a bathroom door that opens out into a hall or room. He should have let you know about that for sure! Have a great week!
Thanks so much Dwight.. At least I got a laugh out of it. I think we’ll just leave the door open for now and take our chances.. Thank goodness I put a window in there which will help the view. Much appreciated. Have a great week as well!~🙏🌹
You are welcome!
Thanks Cindy. I have been away from the computer, blogging, reading and writing etc for a couple of days. Just popping in today to check comments. Great post. Thanks for the kind My Friend.
You’re most welcome and thanks for popping in! Great to see you and glad you enjoyed this one!! 💕😘
You’ve put your sanity at the right place. You sense of humor is just next level.
And that poor bathroom door though.
Your bathroom architect must be high on pot.
Thanks for making me smile and laugh this morning Ritish!! Your kind comments and astute thoughts are right on that the architect must be high on pot 😂😂😂
Glad to make you laugh. Keep smiling.
And don’t worry about those remodeling glitches. It’ll be fixed.
You always put a smile on my face Ritish… T.Y.
You’re right.. ! It’s coming along and i just sit in disbelief and correction. 💖💖 It’s looking good.. thanks so much.
