the mom cave

Remember this mess?
I mean,  this mess?
(serious shithole!)
 This time last year I was upside-down in the center of this chaos.
I used to get the worst anxiety just thinking about walking up those stairs.
Now...   I can't tell you the pleasure that I get when I wake up
and open the little door to the 3rd floor.
It's like my very own secret garden.
Some mornings,  instead of going down to the kitchen, 
I head upstairs to the attic to brew my coffee and catch the morning news.
It is a quiet place to gather my thoughts for the day.
Or maybe to type up all of the ideas that have been generating through my head the night before.



 2016 will be the year that I finally finish a romance novel.

Perhaps I'll be more disciplined with a cozy convenient writing space.

However...   I've got to be careful. 
It is way too easy to take a nap up here.


It's such a comfy space...    I can't believe I waited so long to claim it. : )
Have a great day.    I'm gonna finish taking the last of the Christmas décor down and then I'll probably be upstairs writing taking a nap.  : )

Way to go! What a great little area to write in, nap in and whatever floats your boat. Good job, Leslie! Happy New Year!

Love it. I am starting this year where you were last year. I have a room . . . . . which needs to be emptied, ruthlessly sorted and donated (or trashed) and made child friendly for at least 3 (if not 4) napping grandchildren. It is a daunting task! Your space is just lovely!

Oh wow! What a nice place to drink coffee, watch the news, and write... or NAP!
I love the painted floor! You did a great job.

Melinda said...

It is such a cozy looking little hideaway.

Can't wait to hear more about your novel.

Such a lovely, cozy spot. I love the sloping ceiling, reminds me of the bedroom I had growing up.

Wow! That looks amazing. All my co-workers at agreed that this place looks like a comfortable and pretty nest to have a rest or a nap. Besides it looks like a quite place to concentrate on writing. Looks really great! Well done!
