Fun Monday

I've not done this before, I saw it on Judy's blog and thought it looked like fun, but then never managed to remember it was Monday in time to take part!

The hostess for this week’s exercise is Gattina at Writer Cramps and she wants to see photos of blogging places. You'd have thought I'd have tidied mine up before I took the picture. I reckoned that would have defeated the purpose though!


I have been asked to say could you please note my daughter's lovely sunflower, and if you can spot the red sticker at the bottom of my monitor, the story behind it is here

Now, that was a nice easy one for me to start with, thanks Gattina. I can't guarantee I will ever participate in Fun Monday again. It depends if I can remember what day of the week it is ...

If you call that a messy desk I cannot imagine what a tidy one looks like! Welcome to Fun Monday, its really not as hard as it seems! LOL! Unless you leave it till Monday which IS a habit of mine! It generally pays to sort it out on the weekend if you have the time!

I for one noticed the Sunflower on my own! Love to see the kiddies being creative, makes me very happy indeed! Hope to see you around more in the future!

Cute, cute, cute! And you know what? The sunflower is the FIRST thing I looked at when your blog opened. Seriously.

No need to clean up, it was already neat and organized! Love the sunflower, and you must participate again!

I'm with Karisma. I noticed the sunflower too. In fact, it's the FIRST thing I noticed. Looks like the work area of an educator. I was once one, too. Actually, I believe once a teacher always a teacher whether you're in the classroom or not.
You did a fine job with your first Fun Monday. And who says, your Fun Monday post has to be posted on Monday? I have posted my on Tuesdays and Wednesdays before just because I never know what day of the week it is. (I embrace my insanity.)
We all hope that you play again.
Oh, and one more thing: I ususally don't even follow the rules either.
Now, I'm off to go see what that red sticker is all about.
Have a great week.

I plant sunflowers every summer, in as many places I can. I love them and your sunflower really makes your spot. I could only think of positive and sunny thoughts thoughts sitting in your blog spot.
Have a great day today!

I like the sunflower very much. Also the stuffed monkey! :)

Jan said...

Your space is very tidy, to me. Tell your daughter I love the sunflower, wish it was mine!

First welcome - if you think that is a mess my office at work would be declared a disaster area wonder if I could get funding from FEMA.

Love Mic's sticker ("You Made Me Smile Today") Good back story and link.

Hey Ali--glad you're joining Fun Monday posting--it gets quite addictive to write a post with your particular slant on the assignment.

Please send my compliments to the Sunflower Artist. I'm a wanna be watercolor painter myself and actually have a painting of sunflowers on my display board. Mine, however, is not as well done as your little artist's! And, I wish I was earning stickers for making people smile--unfortunately not lately.

Tell your daughter that I like her sunflower. Welcome to Fun Monday.

Pamela said...

How could one NOT note that sunflower. It's like a shining beacon to a "grand"mother's artist eye.

Was there anything else in the picture? (:

Are you SURE you didn't tidy up? I share my space with a nine year old and it always looks like a wreck!
