I sit a great deal of the time at home. And most of that time that I'm home, I am at my computer. Therefore, the view is very limited. When I don't have to work during the summer (I work at an elementary school) I am writing. I run a prophecy blog and an e-mail newsletter and those take a great deal of time to research and write. I also take a lot of time to try my hand at better photography for my work on this blog. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I'm a photographer in progress.
So my view is limited to my left and my right, and the photo below is to my left: the living room. The oddly covered chair is the cat chair. The cats own it. They majestically recline, Roman style, eying their lessers (me) from the vantage point of the Blue
The view to my right is of the kitchen. I eschewed to photograph the sink, lest the small pile of dishes therein indicate an attitude toward domestic chores that does not befit a stay-at-home summer teacher with plenty of time on her hands to wash them. Instead, I bring you the hanging rack of colorful Fiestaware cups (original) and the also original painting hanging above my table. My previous landlord gave me this charming oil of the Bay of Naples, painted for him by a local Italian boy while my landlord was stationed in Naples many years ago. It was sweet for him to give that to me.
