Computer Room Work Area
I got up early this morning to see bright sunshine, cool breezes and a Spaniel under the cover because she thought it felt cold! I left her sleeping and went down to tackle the next chore on my agenda: getting my computer room into shape. My sister-in-law is coming today to work on some projects and I wanted to get it done in time to be ready. There are always bunny chores that come first, of course!
Lily Supervises the Chores
Lily soon came down to see what all the fuss was about, but chose to go outside and stretch out in the warm sunshine while I did the sweeping. It didn't take as long as I thought to get things cleaned up and organized. Thanks to the cooler weather the allergies seem to be at bay, so I was able to get more done without having to stop and sneeze constantly.
Done at Last
This room was the dining room when we were small. It has a lovely built-in china cabinet, right beside where the old chimney goes up between the walls. I remember playing in the cabinet when I was little. This room has always been sunny and inviting. I also remember when my brother's crib was placed in front of the window. Once he got into the cabinet and discovered that the crash of breaking dishes makes a delightful noise!
Rudy Takes a Bath
The cockatiel, Rudy, also supervises my activities and sometimes serenades me with song, and sometimes with squawks. This morning he decided that a clean house deserved a clean bird, and took a bath in his water dish. I love to listen to him chatter to himself while he bathes!
The View from my Room
No matter what the weather, there is always a beautiful view from my window as I work. Today the sun is shining brightly and the sky is wonderfully blue. The Virginia Creeper that is covering the house hangs over the windows in dancing tendrils, restless in the breeze.
