Satisfying disruption:

Through the Window, WP prompt by Michelle W.                                                                                     Go to the nearest window. Look out for a full minute. Write about what you see.

Outside the study window

Outside the study window

The stillness of a winter’s day reflects the pause between stacking a load of wood, cooking and cleaning. The builder left, leaving plaster dust over every surface. This has created an opportunity to revisit our bookshelves and discover lost volumes, as well as weed out the unwanted; making space for books that are more likely to be re-read. Rifling through papers and files, long past their used by dates has been rewarding.

The studio roof is now insulated and lined, with just a final touch around the skylights to be completed next week. It no longer matters what the weather is like outside, inside has become far more moderate in temperature. It will be satisfying to know every surface has been cleaned, something long overdue.

    Bring on summer! The studio will be a whole new experience then.
    We’ve all the signs of Spring, too, buds everywhere, new leaves uncurling. It seems to get earlier and earlier – the birds have been collecting nesting materials for ages.

      Thank you Janet for those kind words. Our home is filled with things we love, and because we’re both hoarders, it isn’t easy to let go; but sometimes it comes to a point where that is necessary! ❤

    There is nothing more cheerful to contemplate than seeng shelves full of books. Of course stacking of wood and cooking can be just as stimulating. I look out of our kitchen window and noticed the first of a yellow daisy flowering.. Spring is knocking on winter’s door.

      Allowing time to complete the cleaning process is tricky, when other things get in the way!
      I hadn’t thought of it as a jungle Stephanie, but yes, it is wild in places!
