I found myself sulking around the house tonight with the camera, long after the kids and Amanda and the animals had gone to sleep, looking for a corner to shoot. I've long threatened SouleMama with an "other" corners of my home set which shows the soft white underbelly of our household. You know, overflowing laundry baskets, toys galore, mystery food on the floor, greasy windows, dirty diapers, pots and pans, junk drawers, dog hair, dust bunnies, dirt devils, toothpaste on the mirror, broken this and duct taped that. And sure, there was plenty of that around just begging to be documented. But I needed this corner tonight. Probably my favorite spot in the whole house, with the wood stove (or radio holder at the moment) and the rocking chair (with a little mystery something underneath it i notice!) and the kids book shelf. A couple of old pictures on the wall. It relaxes me.
We put an offer on a great old house this week and have been jumping through some serious hoops to try and make it work. In the end,well...it just didn't.
Maybe I'll go sit in the rocker and have a drink. Maybe I'll go lay on the bedroom floor and listen to the kids breathe. This house isn't too bad either.
