I accept your challenge

CindyDianne has challenged her fellow bloggers... what is it? Take a picture of your nightstand - without cleaning it up -- and then tell the To Do list you think of when you see it.

Here's my picture...

See the fan? Yeah -- it is that close to the bed. I have to sleep with it blowing on me. Carl has one on his side, too. AND the ceiling fan goes all the time as well. Crazy, huh?

As for the nightstand... two books. Reading one diligently - Middlesex. It is an amazing book. It is one where you are immersed in the story and can see, touch, taste, and smell everything in it. I love it.

The other one I can't really get into. Of course I only read a couple of pages before I started reading Middlesex. I'll probably pick it up again in a couple of days and see if I can do better.

There is a slip of paper under the second book with one of Bug's friend's phone numbers on it. I either need to give it back to Bug or throw it away.

The picture is of the kids on a walk we took in a neighborhood park. It is one of my favorite pictures of them... even though I can't see their faces. Their body language tells me that they are talking about something very important. It also shows me that even though they are brother and sister, they enjoy each others company and are extremely close.

My watch is on top of my book. I forgot to take it off before I crawled in bed last night and was too lazy to put it in it's normal spot. I only hope the kitten doesn't decide to play with it and knock it off.

You can't see it, but I need to DUST. The clock looks black in the picture but in real life it is closer to gray. That's really not true, but it does need to be dusted. I had to cancel or cleaning lady this month... meaning I have to do it for a couple more weeks. YUCK.

As for the state of my bed and the pillows in the floor... yes, I need to make up my bed and put everything right. I'll do that after I've had another cup of coffee and taken my shower.

You can join in the challenge, too. If you decide to do it, you only have until 6 p.m. tonight. Just take a picture of your nightstand or anyplace that is your "collecting spot" and then list your to do list from the picture. Come back here or to CindyDianne's and let us know you played along.

Easy peasy, right?!!!

Good on ya!

Thanks for playing.

I can't believe how close your fan is to you. I would shrivel up.

Ooohhh. I'd be embarrassed to take a picture of my nightstand right now. I skipped cleaning it off last weekend, so it's a disaster!

You weren't supposed to clean up before taking the pictures. What happened to all the empty liquor bottles and rolling papers? Where is the overflowing ashtray? You didn’t show all the puke stains on the sheets, either. You are not playing by the rules – again.
