It is beginning to feel like home in my new office. It makes me really sad to think that I spend more time in this little room than I do in my entire condo, but you just have to make the most of things like that. Things like work. Boo.
My bulletin board is hung, my picture frames are in place, my bamboo is still growing in its vase, and black cats are strategically placed in every corner of the room. Not real black cats, but ones that make me giggle a little when I am missing Rex – you know, like black cats in red wagons and black cats sipping lemonade with a humming bird. Obsessed? Maybe. I also framed a new picture of my sweet nephew, and it is currently my favorite thing to look at – you can look at it here. I plugged in a vanilla coconut wallflower from Bath and Body Works, and now my office smells like sunscreen and oceans, which I love. I think people walk by my hallway just to smell my air, but I don’t mind sharing. I now have not one, but two (two!) light switches, with which I am able to control the intensity of the awful, terrible, no good, very bad fluorescent lights. My favorite setting is with the left one on and the right one off – it makes it look like a thunderstorm is about to pass by, and all I want to do is snuggle (with my paper black cats).
I am thankful that these little things are able to make me happy five days a week - 70some% of my calendar year. I do love simplicities.
