Recuperating, settling in, where do the days go? Happy Friday, Fringelings!
Welcome to my future beach house in a glass box. Remember that spot I said I was planning for a new tank? Fatigue came over last week, looked at it, and dubbed it the interrogation corner. He could have a point.
I will admit to being amused by the double take done by every person who’s walked into the apartment. I made a game of guessing a) if they would stop and stare or keep glancing at it, and b) how long before they broke down and asked. Hard to tell from this angle, but the tiled area is 4′ x 5′. Alas, I don’t get much company so the game lost its charm after a week.
Allow me to present the new future fringie reef.
Even better, it’s in a prime viewing spot, easily watched from the couch and I can see it from my desk–though not so close as to be distracting when I’m trying to write. Assuming, of course, the rest of life settles down enough for me to write again. My desk. Have I mentioned that 100 times yet? It may not be a room of my own, but it feels pretty close.
From this point on it will be slow going, for budgetary reasons and in the interests of good husbandry. The first commandment of reefing, “Nothing good happens fast in a reef tank.”
In case you’re wondering, poor Little Incredibly Stupid Dog hasn’t quite settled in yet. She’s still nervous, afraid of every new sound. Just breaks my heart, seeing how anxious she is.
What’s new for you?
She’s definitely not on the couch.
Of course she isn’t 😉
Love your work area! Lots of new things for you this fall, Mrs. Fringe. Enjoy them. I hope you will find the time to write.
Since you ask what’s new for us, I will tell you that writing is still very much on my mind and that my middle grade novel is out since Tuesday. Wish me luck! I wish you the best.
Oh, how exciting! Wishing you the very, very best, Evelyn–what’s the title? I’d love to support you ❤
Your desk looks lovely! I like hearing about it 😀
She’s not allowed on the couch? awww
As for being allowed on the couch, it depends who’s home 😛
Understood. We are a Dogs on Furniture household (including sleeping in bed with us!) and so it interests me to learn about other households’ dog habits. We’re all so different sometimes (and so the same others)

We got used to Dogs off Furniture with Big Senile Dog, bc his nails would have punctured the couch. I don’t mind the little one on the couch, but Husband does 🙂
Looking good mrs. f! was there perhaps, once, a fireplace where that 4×5 tile is? In the meantime stretch out your legs in your new bigger space! ❤
Thanks Diana! 🙂 Nope, never a fireplace, I had the tile laid bc I knew I would be putting a tank in sooner or later.
When I see your desk, somehow EliA Doolittle begins singing. “Lots of chocolates for me to eat…” Glad you’ve found your niche – literally!
Eliza. It sounded good in my head, but my phone keyboard likes to play tricks on clumsy morning fingers.
Only morning fingers? Your phone is kinder than mine 😉
Oh wooooouldn’t it be loverly! 😀
