I've been chomping at the bit to feature this blog since I received the photos. I think you'll see why!
Terri of Reading, Writing and Retirement has been retired since the end of 2008. She highly recommends it, spending lots of time taking photos, reading and hanging out at home. Terri's taste in books is quite eclectic, so I never know what to expect when I pay a visit. Her photo blog, Ways I See the World, is very much worth a look, too. I certainly hope that you'll take the time to visit both her blogs and say hello!
Now I'm going to shut up and let you see her fabulous blogging space. If I had this space (especially now since I am sort of retired for a while), you wouldn't be able to pry me out of it with a crowbar! Don't forget that you can click on each photo to view it full size.
This is my cottage/studio space where most of my blogging happens. I use a laptop so I rarely sit at the desk, but more often on the couch with my feet up! I love having all the windows; I watch the birds and squirrels and cats. Since my "office" is so portable, I also do a fair amount of blogging in the "main house" (that sounds so bourgeois! the cottage is a detached garage converted into a studio).
Ms. P is a frequent visitor, though there isn't too much of interest for a two-year-old here. At least, not that she's authorized to play with!
I'd also like to introduce my puppy, Liza, who is usually with me in the cottage and often pushes my laptop out of the way so she can claim my lap.
I'm sure that you can see why I love this space so much. It does look and feel like a lovely little cottage. Plenty of books are at hand. A desk is available if needed. A comfy place to read (and nap). Loving and inquisitive company, if company is required. Lots of windows for natural light. Creatures, flowers, and trees to provide a feast for the eyes, the camera, and the imagination.
All I can say is that it's a very good thing that Mr. Scott and his transporter room aren't real. You'd be missing a very creative and lovely blogging space. Yum! Thank you so much for sharing your space and your companions with us, Terri. We really appreciate it. Keep on enjoying retirement and telling us all about it!
Whose blogging space will you see next week? All I'm prepared to say is that we were on the West Coast (Portland, Oregon) this week, and we'll be traveling all the way to the East Coast to visit New England next Wednesday. See you then!
