Fun Monday this week is being hosted by Hootin' Anni. She's all about games this week, so here's the assignment:
Start at your computer and take 30 GIANT STEPS - IN ANY direction. You may have to make a few turns and pivots so you won't run into any walls or such...don't want any injuries today! WARNING: Avoid any obstacles in the way- if there's a door...open it & continue, if there is a wall...pivot AROUND it. You may end up outdoors! Or perhaps if a small apartment....down the hallway....who knows?!! :::thinking::: "Oh gawd, if there's a pool at the end of your thirty steps, I sure as H E double L hope you can swim!!!!"After the 30 giant steps, Stop!TAKE A PHOTO AND/OR NOTE WHAT YOU'RE SEEING!!Then, take 15 baby steps back.After the 15 baby steps, Stop!TAKE A PHOTO AND/OR NOTE WHAT YOU'RE SEEINGLOOK in any direction -to your right, left, up [more than likely, not down ---that'd be your feet!!]. What you see is what we get!!Stop!It's all about your first glance after the giant/baby steps!!! [You will have two photos/stories for us- the 30 giant steps then, the 15 baby steps going back]Don't forget---ask "Mother may I"!!
So, here's my disclaimer...I live in a condo complex...with lots of neighbors. Because I live in a condo complex...with lots of neighbors, taking 30 giant steps outside and stopping to take pictures, then taking 15 baby steps and repeating the same...without being seen by at least one of my neighbors is unlikely. And when I attempted to sneak some pictures today, I found my crazy neighbor who has a crush on me, standing outside in his pajamas smoking a cigarrette...I ran inside as quickly as possible, and decided to go with plan b.
But, my condo is 850 square feet. Don't feel badly for me, I love my condo, it's my home, and I'm perfectly happy in my little 850 square feet. Also, whoever designed this place was a master at space planning, because most of my rooms are larger than average. Therefore, it's not the size that counts, right? But, why am I telling you all this? Because taking 30 giant steps had me basically walking in circles around my apartment. I should have gotten it on video, it would have been a truly Fun Monday for all of you then. I started on my couch, where my laptop computer resides pretty much everyday, unless I have company. I took a right, then another right into my hallway, a left into my bedroom, looped around the bed, back out of the bedroom, down the hall, into my office, and wound up here:
One of two maps I have hanging on the wall of my office. This one, of the world. A slight turn to my right, and I have this:
A map of the U.S. Also visible, a graduation cap from high school, along with my picture receiving my diploma. And that mess in the corner...the beginnings of my desk.
Now that you've had a bit of a tour of my office, let's take 15 babysteps back:
Afraid there's not much to see here. This is the view from the door of my office, into my hallway. Hey, I have a carbon monoxide detector. Since there's really nothing to see here I decided to show you the view down...my new boots:
(I posted a better picture of my boots here yesterday, if you're interested).
