Reality Check on Tuesday.
I ask you: how the heck can I work this way?
Look at the table. It’s a smallish side table I got at auction a few years back. I fell for the tealish color. It has two drawers that hold a lot of stuff. This table is next to my Blogging Chair (as I have officially christened it) and it is always overwhelmed with pens, scissors, yarn, iphone cords, notebooks, various scraps of notes to myself, and in the midst of it all is the lamp, which is too large for the table. Add to this the fact that I have to torque my body back and to the left to retrieve anything from the tabletop and you see my dilemma.
In the lower right hand corner of the photo you see the edge of the vintage wicker ottoman I have in front of the table.
It is, I’m sorry to say, just as full of stuff:
The copy of Design Sponge at Home has been there for over a year. It has basically functioned as a place to put my laptop when not in use. When I’m on the laptop, I use that groovy Woodstock coaster for my drink of choice – usually my morning coffee. Again: little notebooks full of (to me) vital information, yarn info, scrawled notes for my blog, legal pads, magazines and catalogues.
What a frigging mess.
This, my friends, is where the magic happens. This is where I write my blog. And crochet. And watch television.
I have to find a better way.
Some of the things I need to have at hand are over on the desk, but frankly, I think more of this….mess….can be moved over there. I might have an idea: perhaps a table switch? The one by the sofa just might work here.
Oh, crap. I don’t know. It also just might not.
I still haven’t shredded, by the way. We are now at the 8 day mark.
The answer to yesterday’s quiz? My blue jeans.
I was sitting in the car and holding the iPhone with the camera on and I saw this image and quickly took the picture.
My jeans have never looked so lovely.
