Good morning! It’s Monday and that means it’s time for Monday Musings. Last week Chris Allen-Riley, Kirsti Jones, Lynn Doezema, and I looked at places we’d most like to live. This week, we look at the place we do live…and take you on a virtual tour of our office.
Yup, that’s it. I use the term office lightly. This is my dining room table (decluttered especially for these photos). The farmette is cute and friendly but the layout is a bit funky. I have a long skinny living room and two huge bedrooms upstairs. Plenty of room for an office but there isn’t one included anywhere. We tried to make the teeny bedroom on the ground floor into a study of sorts, but it got converted to a guest bedroom. The last time I spent any time in there I got a bad case of cabin fever and tore up the linoleum to see if there was hardwood underneath. There was…but unfortunately DH was not impressed. However, I digress…back to my office.
Oh yeah! Computer, coffee cup, wireless mouse (because I detest the little finger pad do-dad), my purple binder which contains whatever I’m editing currently, and my blue clipboard which is preloaded with pen and paper for the car.
Now then…say I’m feeling like something a little more cozy…ta-da!
It’s the office easy chair. All I need is my lap desk (shown) and my foot stool, and I can sink into this corner for some work. The old library card catalog on the floor to the left serves as my end table to hold my coffee cup and the research book for my next YA.
So…there you have it. Would I like to have a real office? Maybe someday. At the very least, I’d like to have a little desk space to call my own. Scatter some papers around, put up my Lego mini-figures (the werewolf, Tow Mater, Lego motorcycle dude with goggles and dynamite), maybe even hang something on the wall.
But it’s all good. This layout has worked for me so far!
How about you? What does your workspace look like?
