For this week’s Fun Monday, Angela from The Lurchers would like to “know, or see, what’s on, in or under your bedside table!” Hmmmm…nothing too interesting, but I’ll show you what I’ve got.
First of all, we don’t have bedside tables or commodes as my parents used to call them. We decided when we first moved in this house that would just get small book shelves as we both have so many books. Years later, we still have those same cheap-o bookshelves. (Someday we’ll get grown-up furniture…)
The most important thing that lives on top of my bookshelf is my alarm clock. Without, we’d never get up at the crack of dawn. (Hmmm…maybe that wouldn’t be too bad)
To keep my clock from getting lonely (and in hopes of keeping it quiet longer) I let my hair clips sit on it. During the day, my wrist band is there. The nightwatchman is a pair of glasses.
Right next to the alarm clock is something that has become very important to me. My small, but oh so powerful Vornado. There are some night that I don’t know what I would do without my little friend. Getting older stinks…. (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, good for you…although your time will come!)
On the other side of the shelf is my Taos Bag. I use it to tote my library books back and forth and to hopefully keep them somewhat corralled. Did you know that we are allowed to have one hundred books checked out at one time? I haven’t had quite that many out at one time yet…
In the middle I have little do dads. Like a stack of coasters from Red Lobster that Shaun bravely got for me. I have plans for them….
Some handwritten recipe cards from my mom, aunts and grandma. What you think I should bring them in the kitchen and use them? Nah…these are treasures to keep near me. Although I haven’t a clue what picadillo is supposed to be…
Tucked in the upper right had corner you can see an old cat collar. And a hat my mom made for KT when she was tiny.
Here are some unused gift cards. A small box that has a bunch of small things in it…and those RR coasters…
And, probably the most meaningful object. (Well, except for the hat and the recipes) is an agate. My mom collected it along a beach during her travels and Shaun polished it in his rock tumbler. It makes me happy.
There you go. Like I said, it’s not all that interesting. (But there are a lot more bedsides to snoop at today!)
