in the office


This was not the photo that I was originally going to use. This evening, I sat down in my office all ready to type this post. My photo edited, an awesome flickr photo picked out ... then I hear a tiny scurry in my ear.  I look toward the window that sits next to my desk and see nothing.  I hear it again, and looking straight at me is the tiniest little anol I have ever seen. These beautiful bright green lizards are common in South Texas, but not so common in my office.  I quickly grabbed my camera and shot away.  He was surprisingly cooperative.  After taking his picture, I tried to catch him so he could be free to eat the bugs outside, but he is a fast little sucker.  Alas, he still lives in my office.  I have to admit that my stomach is doing little flip flops of anticipation as I keep expecting him to crawl up my bare leg.

As I sit in my office, I dream that someday it will be a beautiful office filled with pieces like this from kellysioji. I love the old mixed with new. I love this old filing system. I love her use of color and light.  Nice work, Kelly.

I just want to say that there are SO SO SO many beautiful photos that have been added to the flickr pool. If you would like them to be on the blog, please remember to enable downloading.
 
Have a fantastic week. Can't wait to see what else is in your houses.

Thanks for posting my photo! The only thing that would make that filing system even better is if it had its own lizard to weave in and out of the drawers. -Kelly
