For Sale

There's a website called  It's for photography.  There is a monthly list of prompts for those who want to play along and capture their 365 days of the year in photos.  I like the idea but have never been able to stick with it for long. So I've decided to make it my own.  To change it to suit me better.  I want to use words sometimes.  Most times really.  If you get a photo to help illustrate then all the better.  So starting today, or really yesterday, here's some of my 365.

The prompt for today is "For Sale"

I thought on it all day yesterday and it just seemed so... blah.  Until this morning.  I woke up, looked around my house and thought about the cost of life.  Of living.  Of taking care of things and ourselves.  These last few days I've put a lot of housework on the back burner.  And in the spirit of authenticity, I cannot say it was all for a good cause.  Sometimes I just couldn't do it and didn't feel a need to.  Other times I was overwhelmed by the seeming enormity of it all.  And then others I opted out because what I really wanted was to indulge in the last photo of today's series.  The book.  Oh how I love to read.  And on some days, any book will do.

This is the table in my downstairs living room.  The one that used to have a greater purpose aside from the holder of things that I don't want to deal with quite yet.  Weeks my friends, weeks.

I swear I never get things put in the proper place.  Books, fabric, chargers??  It all has a place but this one is so much more convenient.

AT least one of these things will get moved from the surface of my desk as early as tomorrow.  Why?  Because it's that striped green thing that holds James's diapers... I'll need it for church.  Everything else... anyone's guess.

Due to desk and table overflow... this is where I actually did my work.

This bag of opened rice has been on my counter since Tuesday.  TUESDAY!  It's dangerously close to becoming part of my kitchen decor.

Heaven above I love non-wrinkle clothes a little too much.  It would only take 5 seconds more to hang them up but at the end of the day... not happening.

I hate things on the top of my dresser.  HATE.  And yet... an old box, a humidifier that hasn't been turned on since March, clothes that are too small for Ben and only need to be put away into the holding for James pile... and just stuff.  I hates it I tell you, hates!  And yet there it sits.

All of the above sits because of this.  Any irony there??

The cleanliness and orderliness of my life was for sale... the price?  A really good read.

Happy Saturday my friends.  I hope you get some time to read too.

    1. I am loving the book. Devouring it. Can't say that I agree with everything but I love her honesty and the story of life from her eyes. Have you not read it yet?

  2. Most of it in bits and pieces years ago. Definitely need the refresher!
