Silvia Villalobos tagged me for this fun, short challenge. Be sure to check her 5 photos, too!
The theme of my five pictures is “A Glimpse into My Life.” I’ll show you photos from some things going on with me in the next five days. Nothing earth shattering! Just a glimpse into my everyday life.
Hope you enjoy! Feel free to leave a comment or ask me any questions.
This is one view from my desk where I do my writing and other work.
My mother did the painting on the wall. Sadly, she passed away two months ago. I saw her almost everyday, so it’s difficult to have her gone, but I know she’s at peace. She was an incredible artist. I have her gorgeous paintings throughout my house.
That’s my dog Ginger who keeps me company during the day while my husband’s at work. We have two folded futons stacked on top of each other that we use for overnight guests (and camping), and I keep a doggie sheet on them for Ginger. There’s a window to the right, and she keeps an eye on what’s happening on the street below.
On my desk are my and my husband’s wedding picture and my parents’ picture from their wedding reception. The ceramic unicorn and doll (you can’t see much of that) were made by one of my goddaughters when she was, oh, maybe seven. She’s 20 now and off to UC Berkeley to finish her last two years of college. So proud of her as well as her older sister who works in marketing.
That is today’s “glimpse into my life.”
Do you have a “room of your own”?
I nominate Dale Ibitz of Dale’s Place for the 5 Photos 5 Days challenge.
No obligation, of course, only if possible, and here are the rules:
1) post a photo (photos) each day for 5 consecutive days; 2) attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction, non-fiction, poetry, a paragraph – all entirely up to you; 3) nominate another blogger to carry on the challenge. Your nominee is free to accept or decline the invitation! More importantly, have fun.
Happy you accepted the challenge, Linda. It’s fun and engaging. Sending hugs and good vibes to you in this difficult time. I hope the blogging is a distraction. 🙂 Thank you for sharing a day in your life, and the view. Very nice in inspiring.
Thanks for nominating me, Silvia! I can be a little reticent at times (not good for a writer, huh!?), so it will be fun to open up a bit these five days 😀
Linda, I am sorry your Mother is gone. How much you must appreciate having such lovely touches of her still around – to think of the many ways her hands lovingly touched you throughout your life, and those hands created such beautiful art.
I am constantly amazed and energized at how skilled writers can break down the simplest elements of a topic and make it interesting. I was guessing that might be a massage table under Ginger (one can hope) but futons run a comfy second!
Sammy, thank you so much for your kind words. That’s exactly true about my mother, and you expressed it so well. As for Ginger, those futons are as relaxing to her as a massage would be to us! She’s up there snoozing as I write this. 😀
