Welcome to Anybody Home!

Here you will find scattered pictures from my point and shoot camera, random thoughts from my little world, treasured memories of days gone by, hopeful dreams of the days yet to come, and a bunch of ideas - because I've always got ideas!

Okay...who wants to play "What's On Your Desk?"

I will tell you what is on my desk, and if you take the time to read it, you must respond by telling me what is on your desk. It isn't any fun unless everyone who reads this also posts. To make it more of a 'chain letter' quality, those who read, but do not respond will find that their head might start to itch. Think about that. Do you want your head to itch?

On my desk sits a computer monitor, a mouse and a keyboard.

That should be enough, but today there also sits on my desk a note book, a paper with the order of service for Sunday, my Bible and the book "Plowshares and Pruning Hooks".

A Webster's pocket size dictionary and a pocket size thesaurus sits here along with my current Stampin' Up! catalog and an Avon catalog. And lest I forget, there is an empty diet Coke can, and a big white bowl that a few minutes ago had popcorn in it.

One of those tiny 'bankers' lamps adds to the ambiance, or lack there of. My earrings, watch and rhinestone bracelet are here also.

That's it for today. Most of it will be going with me, and I will drop them off to where they belong on my way to setting the coffee machine for tomorrow.

Now it's your turn. What's on YOUR desk?

There's a bookcase on my desk for much needed storage--its full of books and my printer. A small calendar. My computer. My student ID, apartment key, watch, necklace. Used kleenex. Dirty plate. A hymn book. My journal. A lot of papers related to support raising and planning a trip to Washington, D.C. My small Bible. My filled out tax forms I need to send in. A lamp. An empty kleenex box. My stapler. My top drawer is also pulled out (for additional desk space) and I have a very full notebook sitting on it, with a cookbook and somemore papers under it. I really need to clean this thing!

Okay, I played The Game.

I played the game but I posted it in Anvilcloud's comments. It's too untidy to repeat, so if you want to know, then follow his link to The Game in the comment above.

I have way too much stuff to list in your comments, but I did post on my blog!

Well, that depends on which desk you are talking about. The desk where I type sits on top of the wood stove, and contains the printer, 20 inch monitor, a whole bank of chargers for things like cxameras, cel phones, tools like drills, flashlights, etc. I had to make a rack.... A CD burner, and assorted disks, piles of paper from which to enter data into the putr. Speakers too.

Outside on the porch are piles of books and art stuff. In the yard one desk is for irrigation pipe and hoses, another for fixing the DR and the tractor, a third which currently holds a light pole under construction, the barbeque area gets a desk, the back porch desk has over flow from the woodstove desk, the laundry desk and sorting area, obvious, and finally the collection of desks under the trees with electronics projects, and the computer barn, with, you guessed, all in various states of repair.

There, I've cleaned out my desks for you !
