Glimpses of Home

Emily, from Chatting at the Sky, is hosting a linky party this week called “Glimpses of Home.”

The idea is to capture a glimpse of your home that makes your space home to you.

So, I’m going to be HONEST today……..
I’m not ALWAYS “tidy”

not so tidy desk

This is exactly how my desk looks this morning.

It’s actually how it looks MOST mornings.

I eat the SAME cereal every morning with my coffee, while I catch up on my favorite blogs, twitter and facebook.
(notice how I don’t even bother to carry the cereal box and bowl back to the kitchen…yep, every day)

Both my cell and house phone at my reach.
My note pad, camera supplies……the lap top.

I’ll pick it up thru out the day….because all of the clutter will get on my nerves….
but it will look just like this again tomorrow morning.

I LOVE being home every day and I love my space, I love this room.

Head over to Emily’s and link up glimpses of your home!

Be sure to read this post while you’re there……be inspired!

    No one is tidy all of the time… well, at least not anyone "normal". :) You have a cute work space.

    "Tired Tidymom"

    Thanks for coming to visit my blog & leaving a comment! I love that you were 'real' for the picture. My desk is in a armoire and the fact that it has a 'door' on it keeps me from tidying some days but you have to be kind of messy to actually live :) Thanks for sharing! I'll be coming back to your wonderful blog!

    Wow, I'm not worthy. I'm not sure I have the courage to show my desk. I did once but I cheated and straightened it up before I took the picture.
    Yay you. Thanks for sharing.
