Thankful For My Home Office

To most, this would just be a home office. To me, it is my Command Center and I love being right here at my desk.

There is a wall of windows to watch the changing seasons and I can even wave to the mail carrier each day.  A one of a kind desk, vertical storage, plenty of cabinets, shelving, good workspace, and heated floors under my desk. 

The floors are really for my beautiful cat who is right next to me. Since I like the house cooler in the winter...  my Phoebe does love the warmth of the floor at this time of year.  A flip of the switch and Phoebe is comfortable. She is so loyal that she is next to me whatever the temperature.

And right now.  I am looking at the thin blanket of snow and watching the trees sway in the chilly, but sunny, temperatures that may reach the mid-40s today. 

 

Snow rock garden steps

  

We had the perfect beauty of the first snow but the streets are clean and safe.

 

Back to my command center...computer, scanner, printer, shredder...what else could anyone want? The kitchen is adjacent, along with the media room, should I want to take a break (rarely happens). 

So thankful for my command center.

I've shown you mine. Will you show me yours?

Do you have an office that you would like to share?

 

Margaret Rome

Dear Margaret,

That is one awesome desk! Did the tree have a special meaning for you?

I'm thankful for the ability to work from home too, Margaret.  I remember in 1981, when I was first licensed, it was impossible!

Love working at home Myrl Jeffcoat  Back then it was not possible with the lack of available technology.

Being in an office made me appreciate my home office so much more!

I do have a home office that I love.  I cannot share it right now as I am in the middle of a huge project and the office is not presentable. I would love to be looking out my window at snow or rain ... we just have smoke-filled skies right now from two major California fires.

Hi Margaret... I've been working from a home office for almost 29 years and love it. And I love my office... it's at the front of the house overlooking my front porch and the street and I can see people walking their dogs, trees changing colors....

Oh, I LOVE your desk, Margaret! And, love that you have a wall of windows - it's so nice to feel like you can commune with nature while working. 

And, snow? Oh, how I wish for some white fluffy stuff for Christmas!
