This week's Fun Monday takes us inside. Thank goodness because it's been about six stinkin' degrees here and everywhere else in the country during the last week. Taking pictures outside is no fun right now. Our lovely hostess Julie gave us this assignment:
I have decided to put a twist on the traditional Fun Monday. Instead of standing in your front door and taking a photo of what you see outside, let's turn around and take one of the inside. Maybe that will prompt some of us to pick up a tad (you know who you are).
Easy enough. A knock on our door starts on this side of the glass.And you have to get past our security system to get into the door.Not a big deal though. He's all bark and no bite. In fact, he'll turn and run if you act like you're coming after him. A lot of good he's going to do us when the Bogey man shows up. The first thing you'll probably notice when you come inside is the picture window straight ahead. Hubby and I sit in those matching chairs which are too big for the room, but he won't let me change them. That man is MARRIED to that chair. This is where you'll usually find us in the evening. He pretends to watch TV while he really naps, and I read and pretend to watch TV. If you look closely, you'll see a can of peanuts and a candy jar on the table. Those are Hubby's snacks that I pretend not to eat when he gets up to go to the bathroom. Also on the table is a stack of books and magazines that I work through each month. That stack almost always includes a Runner's World, Glamour, two devotional books and various novels from the library, most of which are always overdue. Right now, it also includes the instruction manual for my new camera. On Saturday nights you'll find us hunkered down here with blankets, a pillow (for me), the dog and bowls of popcorn.
Right outside that window you'll see a grapevine. We watch the birds roost there. On any given day, we find cardinals and blue jays on the grapevine. In the summer, the window gives us a great view of the garden and sometimes our neighbor in his shorts and a tank top. No comment.
I know I was supposed to stick to one picture, but I'm already over that limit, so I'll add one more. This hall tree sits on the immediate right of the front door. It belonged to Hubby's grandma, and she kept it to the inside right of her front door for years. When she died, Hubby asked for it, and fortunately, no one else in the family wanted it. I can't imagine why not. It's a wonderful piece of furniture.
You see, nothing fancy when you step inside the front door of the Hula house. Just comfortable stuff to sit on and look at, and that's just the way we like it. Stop by any time and sit a spell. I might even pop some popcorn for you.
