What's on your nightstand?

5 years ago

In an effort to put myself out there and, reciprocally, meet new bloggers, I just participated in a blog hop (thanks to Hilary, a fellow BlogHer blogger and the cutiepie behind  FeelingBeachie). I'm sure I didn't do it right (anyone know the correct protocol of a blog hop? if so,  please fill me in) and may have possibly offended some with my newbie-ness. I did get a bunch of people who came and "linked", which means that I will in all probability repeat the offense again and again, later today.

I did, for the occasion, take a picture of my nightstand. Now before you jump at the chance to give me credit for neatness, know that I have a cleaning lady who comes over twice a month and she is one tidy woman :) My house looks oh so much better after she leaves, for a little while anyway...

Also, in the spirit of full disclosure, I must admit that I did dust it just before snapping the photo and do own (collect, hoard, buy) more than my share of junk (cleverly hidden in the drawer below).

If you've already seen this picture, I apologize for the redundance.



But if you haven't, and care to chime in, I would love to know what your nightstand looks like. Is is tidy? Do you have books on it? Unfinished projects? What do you think it says about you?

I'll start:

  • I can see the book I started to read a year ago, Choice Theory by Dr Glasser, still in my to-read-now pile. 
  • I see the first book of the 1001 Books to Read Before you Die, a blog project yet to be started, subjected to the same treatment (and costing me a pretty penny with the late-return fees)
  • I see a hopelessly eclectic variety of reading material waiting for me to make up my mind about who I want to be when I grow up.
  • I see Emily, squeezing herself into my free time yet again, with her scarf project for her doll, Rebecca (I'm "helping" her learn how to knit). 
  • I also see, from the vantage point of knowing what's behind the cup-o-yarn, the three kinds of mosturizers that I vowed to apply daily, but of course, don't. And the bottle of antacids that I am now using on an almost nightly basis.

 What do you see when you look at your nightstand?
