After you've taken a look at Joli's creative spaces, please take the opportunity to check out Actin' Up With Books. You'll be glad you did!
Before Joli gives us a tour, don't forget that you can click on each photo to view it in a larger size-- which always helps when you're trying to read the spines of books! Take it away, Joli!
The scene of my blog is always changing. I have finally reclaimed my laptop from my husband (I made him get his own) and can go anywhere in the house (and out as the case may be) and not be stuck in my office at my desktop. Sometimes I blog in my bedroom, home office and at my kitchen table. Life has been kind of busy lately and these spaces are complete messes so I am sparing myself a bit of embarrassment and have omitted pictures of those spaces.
|Blogging on the deck|
My newest place to blog is out on my deck. Now that the weather has turned nice, I love to sit in the sun and read and blog. I just have to make sure that I put on a lot of sunscreen and have a cool drink because it is getting hot! I like to blog outside because I don't get distracted by other things that I could be doing inside the house.
|Joli's favorite blogging spot|
My favorite place to blog is in my huge chair in my living room. It is so comfortable and great for reading, blogging and napping. My dog Chewy Shortcake is often by my side and sometimes climbs right on my laptop when she thinks I should be paying attention to her instead of the many blogs I visit. Thank goodness she only weighs 4 pounds so she doesn't do any damage to my keyboard. Although my screen usually has a few of her nose prints.
|Joli's smallest bookcase|
This is my smallest bookcase and includes many of the books that I have acquired since starting my blog in August. I love to buy books just as much as I love to read books. I love having them on hand to share with my friends. What's so funny, or maybe not, is that I keep loaning out the same books - The Hunger Games Trilogy.
I can certainly understand about life getting in the way of housekeeping. In features like this, judicious editing and a good zoom lens come in quite handy. (Just ask me how I know!)
Joli's deck looks like a perfect spot to blog and read, especially at this time of year. Yes... from her deck to her comfy chair to her bookcase to her apple green laptop complete with nose prints, I really enjoyed Joli's tour of her creative spaces. Thank you so much, Joli!
Don't forget to stop by next week when another member of our worldwide book blogging community will be featured on Scene of the Blog!
