Half the fun of nearly everything, you know, is thinking about it beforehand, or afterward.
-Howard R. Garis
What is your most favorite room in your house?
There are so many to choose from: the kitchen (were you get to eat!), the bedroom (where you get to sleep!), the bathroom–(nevermind!).
For me, it’s our study.
I love everything about this little space: its coziness, its built-in bookshelves, its funky walls, its own separate entrance. (Strangely, our house has two front doors.)
Most of all, I love how creative I feel in this room.
In fact, it’s my dream of dreams to set up shop and blog full-time here.
Of course…I will need a dream desk on which to work.
A dream desk like this one:
And since our study is a perfect place for enjoying a nice cup of tea, I imagine my work day will include a tea time.
Of course…I can’t finish a whole pot of Earl Grey by myself, so do please come over for a cuppa from time to time!
Sorry about that.
Currently, our study is home to the cat tree.
Can you see me now?
On days when I need an extra dose of faith that dreams do come true, I recall the 9-year-old version of myself who dreamed of one day owning a house with a study.
So thank you, unknown person who built our house, for setting aside a wee space for thought and stillness.
Now…if only I had a fat, comfy chair to think and be still in.
I tend to get impatient when I think about the life I want to have, but as the quote says above, half the fun of nearly anything is thinking about it beforehand and afterwards.
Perhaps in doing so we will prolong the enjoyment of the good things we want in life? 🙂
So until our study can be my full-time creation station banana-fana-fo-fation, I will continue to drift away in delicious reverie…
What are your dreams?
I’d love to hear them!
