Where I Blog
My cyber-friend Kim at Snug Harbor Bay recently posted a piece on where she sits and what she sees when she is blogging. I learned so much about her that I thought I'd return the favor! Although I sometimes blog by phone, most often I sit with my laptop on the couch in my family room, arguably the shabbiest room in my house. I sit, often in my jammies and fuzzy slippers, on my old couch -- I love it but it is not aging any better than I am -- and conduct my trifecta of blog-television-craft. I watch netflix movies and past season HBO shows, the news, the daily obituaries, and an embarrassing assortment of prime time TV shows.
From where I sit, I can see my back yard and the TV. It is foggy today, but usually I can see the birdbath and feeder. Right now the weather is getting colder, and I've been watching the squirrels gather mouths-full of dried leaves to build their winter nests.
To my immediate right is an old table, a hand-me-down from way back in the late 1980s. The table holds my land-line telephone, an artifact that is generally useless to me because I use my cell exclusively these days, a shell lamp I filled from early Sanibel trips, and an assortment of threads and notions, including the wonderful pin cushion I won!
