I enjoy all the bookish things on her blog, but the icing on the cake for me is her sense of humor and her photography, whether it's for Wordless Wednesday or an appearance by Howie the Cat (who deserves his own Facebook page).
If you've never visited Whimpulsive, I hope you take the opportunity soon, and please remember to say hi. As always, you can click on each photo to view it full size. Take it away, SuziQ!
I'm honored to be included in Scene of the Blog.
Two days a week I work from home and on those days I hook up my laptop in the den to a second monitor. I've found that much of the actual posting and formatting of blog posts and photos is much easier with two monitors. I typically have a blog related to do list that I tackle when I'm set up here in the den. I didn't have to tidy it up at all because I rarely have much on the desk when I'm working from here. All my work and most of my blogging is online so there's not a lot of paper involved. There's not much of a view from here, either. About the only thing I can see from here is into the living room to the left and our fence and neighbors house out the window to the right. I don't mind the lack of view though because I only use this room when I'm working. As you can see, Pirate Bendy is there reminding me I need to work on a post for his blog too.
I do most of both my reading and blogging in my corner of the family room. As you can tell it's my reading, crocheting, blogging, Internet surfing, football watching haven. My laptop lives on the desk in the kitchen, but I rarely actually use it there because the desk it too small and not a comfortable place. I like my corner of the family room much better. Howie is usually nearby waiting for the sound of a laptop being closed so he can get some lap time. I do the majority of the drafting of posts and blog reading and commenting here in the family room while watching TV. As you can see, I like to have my books, beverage of choice, book buddy pillow and my lap quilt handy.
There's a lot to be said for having a workspace that doesn't have a view: you can get in there, get the work done, and get out instead of gazing out the window daydreaming. (Ask me how I know.) But don't you just love her corner of the family room? By the fireplace and the window, a comfy chair, what looks like two Adirondack chairs outside... and is that a little gnome in the corner of the garden? If you don't click on the family room photo to enlarge it, you're going to miss the expression on Howie's face. (I'm beginning to think he's one of the most photogenic cats in the US of A!)
Thank you so much, SuziQ for allowing this glimpse into your world. We certainly do appreciate it!
