I'm a little late to the party. For the past couple of weeks we've been having daily internet outages lasting most of each day. It's been a frustrating couple of weeks posting and keeping up with blog reading.
I called our internet provider yesterday. They were out here by afternoon and fixed the problem. When does that ever happen?
Now, on with the tour!
This desk has been with me since my kids were small and we got our first computer. It's been through a divorce, a move, an empty nest, a new marriage, the move here, George's separation anxiety. . . (He gouged the heck out it one day during a period of extreme separation anxiety after being boarded for the first time.) Like me, the desk has survived it all with just a few minor scars.
This is a pretty big house, and we have the luxury of an office; actually, two of them. This one we share. There's another upstairs that's all his.
This space in the living room is all mine. This room is filled with all kinds of sentimental things I've collected, but then, that's a whole other post. My husband calls it, affectionately, the museum room. Update: ah, much better with a clean mirror. (It's amazing the things that show up in a photo that one doesn't see with the naked eye.)
This is my husband's side of our shared office. Whaddaya think of that big honkin' monitor! He offered to get me one like that too, but the one I have is just fine for me, and fits well in its space. I might need one like that if my eyesight keeps going in the direction it's been the last few years. (He's got better eyesight than me, he just likes the big screen.) It's not a tiny office, and it's not huge either. It's big enough though.
Below is a computer cabinet my husband gave me. It makes a perfect sewing cabinet. (The sewing machine was a gift too.) The top flips up, back, and out of the way, the sewing machine slides out on the keyboard tray, and there's plenty room for knees. The two bottom drawers are quite roomy, and hold a lot of stuff. Everything closes up, so all that stuff is neatly out of sight. (I'm a bit of a neat freak.) The stuff on the chair is camera stuff - tripod case, camera cases, all new stuff my generous husband recently bought for me. I could go around the room and point out many things he's gifted me with. Generous as he is though, he's also a pretty unassuming guy, and I wouldn't want to make him feel uneasy. Lets just say he's been very $upportive of my interests, and leave it at that.
I hope you enjoyed the tour. Please visit Brenda and check out her creative space, as well as links to other bloggers participating in this fun cyber event!
