Much I am learning to do in a different way

I have always used an antenna in my country homes
here in the city at this nice place
you are connected to Com cast.
A lot is different with phone as answering machine does not work and a lot changed on computer.
The television is totally different with many channels and if I have the local news and Public
Broadcasting I am pleased.   Not a television viewer, I write and read....

I like to send my children images of what I am doing
and it takes like 10 or 15 minutes
and not the size I want.  So easier on this journal site and guess the whole world will know what I am doing :)

Have been trying to send image of 1/2 card table I ordered to put in front of window.  No room on computer desk to write and also if I want to eat something or have a cup of tea I can sit at this
table and look at the view out of this window.  Looks like Winter woods at this time but if here in the Spring will be beautiful and they fill large container outside my window with flowers.

trying to decide whether to keep or return to Amazon for smaller table ?

Jamie arrived yesterday morning and took me to the dentist I have gone to for 25 year and will not change as they are all so kind and never any pain.

My plans for future
no plans
one day at a time
I do know
at the moment
this is where I need to be.

You quoted my blog accidentally hit that is my philosophy on life! Your room looks lovely and comfortable. I think you will adjust to all. Just be patient with yourself.

Once again, I love your creative and tasteful decorating and arranging of your space. Beautiful to be able to watch the nature outside your window as you enjoy writing and a cup of tea. I could use some of your talent. Thanks for your inspiration! Sending warm thoughts from a very cold north. :-)

Pienosole, a lifetime of creating and decorating, same old pieces I place in a different way
makes no differance if all returned to the country in weeks as I now need it to look
like my home for me - no other way I can live :) thanking you always for your positive support.
Oh Tabor, now I remember, was my thought as I typed this early morning... :)

You bring your own personality to your lovely new space. I brought my big table her and it truly works for all my needs, designing and writing and reading.

So very glad you are safe.

That table is exactly the size I wanted before Christmas, but didn't even know they made such a thing!!!

Judy, Amazon has everything, also have one that is smaller, 1/2 tables great...

I like the size of the table. I like the way it spans the window and gives room for writing and perhaps a cup of tea. :)
