A little white second-hand table beside the couch. A cup of coffee sitting by the laptop. The laptop open to my latest WordPress post. Writers block strikes me yet again, these little prompts always inspire me to write, but today those words are just not coming out at all.
Co-incidently the above is where the story ended as we got busy and i haven’t posted.
In my head my ideal spot is in a coffee shop, the people sitting down sharing a meal and some coffee. The hustle and bustle of people going about their daily lives, but stopping to take some time out. I remember sometime ago finding a website that provided cafe ambiance, perhaps i need to look for that again to get some inspiration. Funnily enough it starts to work. Whilst the words are not pouring out in a stream they are there.
If not in a coffee shop a serene white room, a comfortable chair by the window overlooking the ocean. The log white sheer curtains blowing gently in the breeze. Books in every nook an cranny to provide inspiration. Vases of flowers in the prettiest shade of pink, a black cat curled up by the fireplace that is cackling away on the other side of the room. All of the things that bring me joy are on display on shelves, bookcases, and the mantle. My perfect Pinterest worthy room you could say. The vision of how i want my house to be…
Boooooooom reality hits…
The house is quiet Jack (he due to medication) & Angel (her because of her huge weekend) both sound asleep, The cats wandering around doing what cats do which is nothing at all. I can see a slight breeze outside, knowing that now maybe the only calm part of the day as storms are coming. I want to try and get some photos for my blog posts whilst we have a hire car, hoping that i can also fit a 28 Active Recovery session in as well before we are stuck inside with all of the rain and bad weather (though we will most likely be spending it cleaning).
My current space on the couch (full of newspapers handbags, camera and other assorted items, squishing me into a corner at one end) far from either of the visions in my head. With the TV on (Fixer Upper re-runs again) provides a distraction from the job at hand. Our really busy few days with all of Angel’s busy-ness has put me behind. My blog posts have piled up over the past five days, so forgive the amount of postings today (and the assorted dates). I see the new (2nd hand) coffee machine still sitting on the table, knowing that it will have to be moved into the kitchen today, also knowing that the kitchen looks like a natural disaster area and will need cleaning, in-fact having this little space of time to blog is a good thing with all of the cleaning that we will need to do for the rent inspection on Wednesday.
Time for me to get up, get that coffee machine started and sit back down and blog until i need to stop.
