THANKFUL THURSDAY: my office
When Dh and I started our remodel project last year, one of my "must haves" was a home office. A place to write, a place to think a place to read, a place to be. (vase and votive were estate sale finds, and look like the "real thing")
We share the space. Often we work there at different times. I'm there during the day and sometimes I'm alone there for hours.
He uses it mainly as an office-away-from-work, and stores things there he wants to keep, but doesn't need to have at hand at work.
My side has reference books, useful supplies and a handy jar of dog/cat treats. I have a pillow in my chair that I bought in SF last year, when I went to a writers' conference there.
In the corner, I have some plants and a fountain. I love the sound of the water and having living things sharing the space.
Skitter Kitten has a favorite spot in the desk to sleep, Baby and Scooby come in and out, mostly for the treats I keep in a jar on the desk. Mr Whiskers is still getting used to the room and visits to scratch on the scratching pad. None of them wanted to pose for this entry.
Since we set up the office, I've written more, read more, and felt more in tune with my writing. I'm so thankful to have a place I can call my own for writing.
What are you thankful for today?
