The 39 steps



My commute.

I get the double meaning of your title.

What I notice most about this picture is the lack of whiteness on the ground. And there other colors in it too! Oh how I long for life's abundancy of Spring.

I guess you dont need reminding how lucky you are- cuz you is! I am a firm believer that nice things happen to nice people :)

A fine commute it is.

so said...

Very, very jealous!

I had one of those commutes in Ft Providence when I was there, only about half the distance.

The perspective in the photo kind of made my head spin until I realized that the post in the foreground wasn't supporting that roof.

It is greener there than it is here.

Ontario Wanderer said...

So nice to see green. (Are we all green with envy?) You are lucky indeed, as so many commute on grey pavement.

Wayne said...

Have I missed the history of the workplace?

For about a year I've been considering how best to construct such a thing - something we've referred to as a "shed" but which would be more glorified and double as office and seed storage and planting building.

For awhile I thought about putting it in a tree.

Pablo, when I counted the steps to get to "work" - there really are 39 - it reminded me of the movie. :)

Nio we wuz robbed. No white stuff for us this year AGAIN.

Thanks KF, RD, & so! I feel lucky. :)

Clare, oops, I should have realized the perspective problem. I guess I'm so familiar with this view that I didn't see it.

Bill & OW - we haven't lacked for rain lately but it sure was dry in the fall. Most of the green is weeds of course. :) I was glad to leave my concrete commute behind.

Wayne the building was here when we moved in. Hubby said any real estate listing with "workshop" in it made me salivate! (It's true. I wanted a separate building for my soap business.) It didn't have anything but a counter and a sink though. We put in all manner of shelves, cabinets, etc. Still needs a lot of work. I'll put up pics of the inside if I can ever whip it into shape. :)

Ooh, a treehouse workshop would be pretty dang cool!

Clare's right about the perspective and the pole, but that's not a bug; that's a feature!

I'm envious, not so much of the short commute (mine's usually even shorter) but of the space. O to have space of my own!

How did the weekend sale go?

I don't get the double meaning, because I am not as smart as Pablo, but I am envious...even though I imagine you work pretty hard once you get there.

Jenn said...

My commute is shorter, but I no longer have a living room. So jealous of a second building!

Nice roof - is that PURPLE! Faboo!

Mrs Lifecruiser said...

Ahh, it looks so peaceful and nice...

Ron now I'm not constantly hearing "This tastes like soap!" but just this morning, soap was (unfairly) accused of somehow having something to do with the breaking of a wine glass.
The show was not as busy as last year, but fun anyway.

FC he just watches more movies than you! I did see the movie of the same name years ago, but have forgotten almost all of it. Books and movies just do not stick in my brain like they used to.

Jenn it's actually more red than purple... just the light that makes it look that way I suppose.

Mrs L, it would be, if only all those ducks and cats and the dog were not constantly trying to come to work with me!

You are so lucky to be doing what you love and doing a fine job, I might add.

Those pictures of the creek above made me so homesick. I used to love going wading in Turkey Creek near my house. My sister and I collected rocks.
