Daily Prompt: Wall to Wall
Home is a place that should reflect who we are, which to me means it’s not a sterile or static environment. Also different areas have different functions in my life, so no everything isn’t above the sofa. The kitchen has a calendar with food photos, and a cork/white board, where I leave notes for what I need in the way of household supplies, and food items. I am one of those that will use up the last of a spice such as galangal, and as I don’t use it every day, promptly forget about it, until I need it again. The cork section is where I pin my bills which I can’t pay online so they get paid. The dining area has a window on one side, and a blank wall area that extends to the kitchen. This blank area is for that perfect piece of artwork that will stimulate conversation, enhance the appetite, and add color, so it remains an unfinished project. Now off to the living room, where a framed print of the picture above, can be found. If it looks familiar, it is the basis for my banner here, and bonus points if you know where it was taken. Then that little corner which passes for my home office, has a large cork board on one wall, and above the desk is a standard letter sized frame. The photo or saying here changes on an irregular basis, and currently has the one shown below. It has held such classic sayings, as I work to live, not live to work, when I felt I needed to re-balance my life.
The hallway has a collection of small photos, mainly of family, friends, and a few pictures of places where I have lived and traveled. The bathroom has nothing extraneous hanging on the walls, the less to clean the happier I am. My bedroom walls only have a little decoration on the wall behind my home shrine.
