I think my camera is older than I am, i.e., it’s emphatically not digital-age. That, combined with the fact that I no longer take large numbers of photos, ensures a pretty significant lag between taking photos and there being any possibility of posting them. All that to say, some time in the summer when we’re all wishing for some relief from the heat might be a good time to post pictures of frozen waterfalls and such.
Meanwhile, here are two more photos of our home.
This would be half of our bedroom. Arwyn, naturally, knows a comfortable spot when she sees one.
Remember the pictures I posted a while back of our bookshelves? This is the same room, but looking the other direction. This is where we work, where we enjoy the lovely views over the valley, and where we eat. And where we put one lone bookcase that didn’t fit with the rest of them.
Also, notice that Erin has stuff lying all over her side of the table (the fore side). It looks like she even needed a chair to contain the overflow. I, on the other hand, managed to organize my papers into lovely stacks that serve as a nice balance to the monitor on the other side of the table. Aesthetic balance is important in one’s work area.
I’d like to see someone try to grade papers without, well, a bunch of papers stacked in various piles. I see Sydney took great delight in capturing on film a moment of ‘messiness’ on my part. The difference between his style and mine is that this is a fleeting moment in my work life, followed by long spells of bare desk. His desk, however, hasn’t been cleared off since the first time we had people over to our apartment (March 2006).
I have a hard time believing that Erin’s mess was anything other than temporary. I enjoy having piles, I know where everything is located within my piles, and they are organized piles. But I also know that Erin doesn’t subscribe to my organizational philosophy.
So much light!!! I’m jealous! 🙂
Yes, that room looks wonderful to be in. Also, I know a little something of Sydney’s organizational style.
Looks like a very *organized* mess to me.
