Day 5 of NaBloPoMo……. ugh

Here we are on day five of the blogging challenge NaBloPoMo_November_small  and I’m doubting myself.  I am blogging at night for the following day which totally puts me out of sinc.  I’m doing this because I am out of town helping with my grand daughters who are 2.5 years and 2 weeks.  My back hurts.  I will be here until Thursday morning – and very glad I am here.

Today’s prompt is: Tell us about your writing space. Where do you write your blog posts?

I chuckle over this one.  I had set up a lovely work space in a spare room where I have a twin size bed that is rarely used.  I also have an old tall chest – or maybe it’s a chiffarobe.  I just love saying that word, chiffarobe, ever since I first read To Kill a Mockingbird.  Chiffarobe.  It must be said with a southern accent and only two syllables.  My piece of furniture opens up a desk area with ample writing space and several little drawers and cubbies.  It’s a nice piece but needs a little fixing.  I had set it up with a lovely lamp and all my creative tools including Eve, my faithful Macbook.  I loved this room.  Then we moved to a two bedroom house.

This house is plenty big enough for my husband and I but that made my work space the guest room and it seems our grand-daughter was over often.  We would rather have her than anything else in there, but….

I then set up a corner in our bedroom which, as I think most creative people will understand, became a catch-all.  So my work space is now the kitchen table.  I actually love working at the kitchen table because I have a lovely view of the backyard and my dogs playing.  It is peaceful.  And the coffee pot is right behind me.

Blogging everyday is very challenging for me.  I have a lot of ideas running around in my head, which is good, considering just last week I was a blank slate.  But blogging and staying in my son’s apartment for three nights away from my bed and hubby and dogs is very tiring.  Although, the best thing about it is my little Lucy and her new sister Penny June.  I love them more than words could express.

So on that note…… I bid you a good night until tomorrow.
