Working at home

Some days when I don't have meetings or people to meet or court to attend, I get to stay and work in my little home office. Those are some of my favorite days--oh I like dressing up and going to court and saying big words and talking to other lawyers--but once a week or so I get a day when I can wake up and put on my jeans, wool socks and clogs, let my hair dry curly and work at home. Today is one of those days. I was getting a lot accomplished until I noticed how cute Judith was in my plants.

OK, Mischief managed--back to work.

Ah, the essentials of life. You beautifully summed up why being at home is so precious. Your cat is very sweet. Thanks for the feel-good post.

Since I retired, I have been working from home. My wife would probably ask, "What work?", but it is my work none-the-less. We got a maid to come scrub the place out once every two weeks and I kept her out of my office for the first two visits because I didn't want her to quit right away. She tackled it this week and I am about to get my stacks back in order. We'll see if she comes back.

Your day off is my every day. :<) I go all day saying my 'big words' to the dogs.

Ahh the joys of being about to work from home. I wish that my job would allow me this flexibility, maybe in my next career. The kitten is to adorable, it is a wonder you got any work done!

Good for you. Your home 'office' looks so bright and cheerful. No wonder the kitty wants to be in there.

Beth,

I'm afraid if I had the opportunity to work at home too often, I'd get fired. You see, I can't resist a cute distraction like your kitty, nor would I be able to stay away from the windows...

Glad you enjoyed your day and got away from the big words :o)

I'm not a "cat person" (I hear so many stories about writers and their cats that I feel a bit guilty about that sometimes), but I really like the photo of Judith sticking her head out around the plants--that wide, curious look. Great photos.

Pretty plants in a sunny window--doesn't Kitty nibble on them?? (My kitty would have them in tatters)

Looks like a perfect place to be--even if it's for working!
