Those who know me well (family!) are assuming at this point that I threw everything in the laundry room! Shame on y'all!
See that white cabinet off to the right hand side? Since I basically use the kitchen table as a desk, I am going to start housing my bills and a few household files in there. And yes, that is Mac in his underwear...hey, it's the end of the day, and he wanted to get comfy...sorry! I noticed that after I posted the photo and I don't feel like changing it now. Let me attempt to distract you with the yellow post it note on the side of the white cabinet! One of the first times Mac wrote his name, he did it on a post-it. He was so proud, he stuck it there for all to see and we've just left it right there 'cuz we're kinda proud too! ;)
And here we have another photo with poor lighting! But, what I wanted you to notice is the large handled basket sitting next to the chair and ottoman. (I found it at the grocery store's floral dept for 9.99!!) I am using it to hold my bible, my devotionals, my women's ministry binder and journals. The basket is the perfect size...and my spot at the kitchen table is very close by! (please do notice that in this photo, Mac is wearing pants). And why do I feel the need to explain that the sign on the mantel actually says "Hope" and not "Hop"?
I'm off to make apple dumplings...there's one more thing I want to say--something fairly important that I learned last week in bible study, but I must save it for another day! (how's that for a teaser?)
