Corners of My Home #3

A little over a year ago, this room was my master bedroom. It is clear across the house from our other bedrooms and after Leah was born we always felt like we were too far away from her. We decided to pack up our stuff and move upstairs to a smaller bedroom. My daughter has since dubbed this our studio, but in reality it is just an oversized office with a 3/4 bathroom attached. I love this space for one particular reason - the windows. It is bright and sunny during the day and just a nice place to sit and check out my friend's blogs.

This room was an add on to our home by the previous owners who needed an in-law suite. It has two huge windows that look out at the front yard and two smaller windows on the side. About a year ago I found an older women sitting in her car in front of our house. It turned out to be that previous owner. We brought her on a tour and she told us that there is a fireplace footing below the floor between the two smaller windows. Apparently they planned on eventually opening up the wall between this room and the living room to make a bigger space. I don't know if we will ever do that, but I guess it is nice to know that it is there.

Anyway, this is where I spend all of my time blogging and where my daughter likes to play computer games on playhousedisney.com. As you can see, the obsessive cleanliness I so worry about in my kitchen (see previous Corners post) doesn't really apply here!



Oh, and here is one of my two cats, Howard. He is sitting in one of his favorite spots, right in my face, In FRONT of the monitor. Nice.

So, this is where the action takes place. :-)
Cats do have a way of getting up in your face, don't they? LOL

Cute! My cat (the orange one) does the exact same thing. And he gets really ticked off if I try to move him too. Dang fussy animal. ;-)

"Howard" is a great name for a cat & is that snow I see outside your window??

Stephanie said...

Kristin,
Yep, that's snow (I took this picture a week ago during a snowstorm. Howard was the name the animal shelter gave to my cat before we adopted him. He is a very affectionate cat.

Howard looks a lot like my last (that's as in final) cat, Basia. He's a pretty boy! Love the view from your windows.

I'm envious of your nice, big, sunny office. I feel like I'm sitting in a hole while I do my blogging!

And cracking up @ Howard the cat. Great name!

If I ever get divorced and come live with you I will spend all my time in this room. It looks like it would be so nice at night to stare out those windows and look at the stars.
