Improvising "Cornerview"







This week has been a week of improvising. Our dryer of 8 years broke on Friday night full of wet clothes. Ugh! We could have fixed it, but since we have all ready had it repaired 3 times we are calling it quits and got a new energy efficient LG dryer. In the mean time of waiting for the new one to arrive my friends have been so kind to dry my clothes for me. Thank you! Sadly, this was the one week I hadn't kept on top of the laundry and there were piles. My littlest had to go to school on Monday with pants that barely stay up because he had no other pants. I have to say I love my new iphone and is great for improvising when you don't want to lug a big camera which I didn't want to do this weekend when we went to the Weinachts Market at the International School. It is so cold here right now. I almost feel like we are in the wrong state with temps in the 30's. I don't even have a proper coat for this kind of weather, so we have been layering. What have you been improvising? Too see more improvising around the world visit Theresa who is babysitting cornerview. To see more Tuesdays head over to Communal Global.

I wish I had an iPhone to improvise with! I can imagine all the awesome photos I would get. Sometimes the SLR is too bulky to carry, but I'm not a fan of my point and shoot camera either :o/ Sorry about the dryer! If it's any consolation, I have to go to a laundromat every week to do my laundry.
i absolutely love your improvised (?) photos, kelleyn!

Very cool and interesting treatment! I've never gotten into the habit of taking pictures with my phone... I don't even know how to upload/download it when I do! :)

Love that kind of improvising (of the broken appliance kind)! Not! Didn't your Mom's appliances last for like 30 years? What happened to those days?

I lost my phone and bought a new one without looking too hard at it. Guess what? No camera. Oh well! These photos are fun...I bet I would enjoy that. We would make a good pair...we were without a wash machine recently. Not fun!

Here in Germany it is very cold for a long time.
I now almost always in my ski suit, I am not so vain, and in any case I do not feel cold!
Liebe Grüße, Petra

A ski suit like follygirl above is what I need for our current temps!

What a lovely card we got from your little family! You are so on the ball, I want to be like you when I grow up. Sorry about your dryer, that is never nice.

Does the bottom picture show the people bringing your clothes back?

Great photos! Isn't it always the way that appliances break down when they are needed the most?

My whole life consists of improvisation..I wouldn't know where to start!

Fun and free feeling , sometimes not having things 'working' makes for spontaneous and unexpected joys
