My Blogging Place ....

Thanks to Cathy, Chloe and Connie, I was inspired to take a photo of my computer work area. As you can see, it is very congested ... there is more stationary than can be found at Officeworks !!

I work on a laptop, however I have a cordless keyboard and mouse, so when at home the laptop is basically just a monitor and hard-drive. It has been (sort of) tidied up, so there is actually a tiny bit of desk top showing !!

The window (you can only see the curtains !!) has a nice view of our backyard - an apricot tree which my cat loves to climb, and which lovely colorful birds regularly visit.

On the desk, to the right is my Canon Multifunction printer - it prints, copies and scans. It is a fabulous printer, and does amazing photos. I am very happy with it. Under that is my DVD burner (the laptop has a CD burner installed, as well).

My husband and daughter bought me the beautiful, big, comfy, leather chair for my birthday last year. I could fall asleep on it, it is that comfortable (the cat uses it at night, she thinks it's OK, too!!).

OOoops, I think I need to empty my rubbish bin under the desk ... naughty me, it looks ready to overflow !!

The pile of paper to the left of the keyboard are bills that need paying ... better get onto that, one of them is my car registration ...$546.20, thank you very much !!!

Now, although I work (and play) in a very busy looking area, I like it that way. My whole house is somewhat busy (although not as untidy as this area!). I get lonely if there is nothing around me.

Now, I will continue the challenge ... What Surrounds You ???

Have a great weekend everyone. Take care,

MEOW

$520 for rego, sista you got out of that cheap!!! Try $650 plus here in the Sunshine State!!

Meow said...

OMG, that's highway robbery !!! Another thing the states don't agree on. Hope your weekend is going well, Meow

Connie and Rob said...

You have a very nice little spot. I think I win with the most utilized space (that sounds nice). Oh I love that chair!

Thanks for the peek into your world.
Connie

Meow said...

Hi Connie, and thanks. The chair can lean right back ... wonderful for a mid-afternoon snooze LOL :-)Have a great weekend, Meow

Lisa said...

I think your office looks very homey !!!

Meow said...

Thanks, Lisa. It is in the family / dining room, so I am never alone ! I am looking forward to getting a bigger, better desk one day !

Meow said...

BTW, Lisa, like your new picture. Butterflies are so peaceful. Take care, Meow

Aunt Jo said...

Your space looks very nice, as mine does now that Joe tidied it up last week! I love my lap top but just hat lugging it around to work every day.

Have a great week end!

Kylee said...

Chloe said...

I want your comfy chair. Mine is making my neck hurt. Now upsatirs at my craft desk I have the comfy chair.

Meow said...

AJ, thank you. Luckily I don't need to lug my laptop around much, only when we go away (mainly to blog!! and to download photos, etc.).

Kylee, thank you, too. It is a nice spot, only as I said, too cluttered.

Chloe, I've had the laptop about 2 years now, but it is still doing it's job. It has a nice big screen.

DaybyDay, it is an extremely comfy chair, however when doing lots of straight typing, I need a lumbar support, as it doesn't support as well as a "typist" chair. I can live with that, though. LOL

Have a great day everyone.
Take care, Meow

what surrounds me is whereever i happen to be with my laptop. it could be the chair, the couch, the bed, my son's bed, the potty, classrooms.

i too am jealous of your chair. i bet it smells good too.

Meow said...

Susie, that's a great way to be. I love to sit anywhere with the laptop, but tend to sit at the desk. And yes, the chair does smell nice !?!?

Cathy said...

Yeah!
Thanks for showing us your space...yours looks similar to mine, in a way...
This is so fun!
xoxo

Meow said...

Cathy, I really like my space, however I think I might add some more personal touches (like Connie's ... hers has stuffed toys, pickies, etc. - it was cozy). I do have photos on the wall above to the right, but they didn't come out in the photo ... wrong angle !!
Take care, Meow

Sonia said...

Hi Meow, I like so much to see where you "meet" your blogosphere's friends.

Meow said...

Sonia, it makes it all a little bit more real and personal, doesn't it, when you can see where others work and play.
Take care, Meow

mysterious in blue said...

it looks like you need a bigger desk :).

Meow said...

You could be right there !!! And lots of cupboards and drawers, too.
Have a great day, Meow
