Whats On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 377

Well look at me....washing's out, desk is relatively tidy and it's good light.
Oh..you can't see the washing, waving on the line. Oh well, you'll just have to take my word for it that this morning has started well. It should continue so too, I'm off to help that Jan and her important G to shift stuff from one house to another house. I'm going to be a van driver. It's been ages...!
So, an aerial view of the desk, taken with no effort at all - I just held my ipad in the air; no chairs used or stunts pulled to achieve this pic. You can see the top side of the painted stone now. The first one I painted is by my flower pot on the front doorstep. I like it. And so with a spectacular lack of imagination, I'm making all the stones look similar! That's the extent of this weeks crafting; I keep talking about intentions, but there's so much that keeps me away from it. I firmly believe that you make time to do things you really want to do, so I'm obviously not quite as inspired as I want to be!
Please join and show what you're doing and where you do it; it's just fun.

Your stone looks so bright and welcoming for sure it will draw your eye to it for sure in your pot. Have fun driving Jan around

Julia, I love the stone.

Good luck with the van driving. Sue

Good luck with the van driving. You are putting me to shame with all you are doing.
Love the stone, that is fabulous and what a transformation it has made since last week. Hope you have done one for Jan for her new home.
Hugs, Neet xx 11

Happy WOYWW. You are up earlier than me (although I did feed the cat and let the dog out before getting to my desk). Lovely sunny view of your desk (it is a bit cloudy and dull here this morning). Van driving is something I do not do now, as our farm van has a manual gearbox and my legs(arm/hand/shoulder) do not like them. Ali x #12

Lynn Holland said...

Hmm funny that Julia how your thoughts reflected my own. Apart from helping my goddaughter the creative thing is just not happening
Good luck to everyone with the move. Don't be overdoing it missus.

Annie said...

Oh wow....I am seriously impressed. Washing out, tidy desk, evidence of creative play AND you are playing removal lady today with the van. It's soooooo good to have to old you back my friend.
Really hope the sun shines and today goes well.
Hugs,
Annie x

The desk looks wonderful and the stone is fab - what a lovely "welcome" to your desk.
Hope all goes well with Jan's move. Don't either of you over do things.

Loving the painted stone, Julia! Glorious day for a house move for Jan - hope it won't get too hot - better than rain, though - so good of you to help out with the van! Sometimes our intentions and plans to create are more exciting than actually creating something - as long as it gives us an emotional boost, it's all good! Have a lovely week!

Angela Radford said...

Hi Mrs Shifter, hope the day goes well but take care with the heavy stuff. Happy woyww, Angela x 16

Diana Taylor said...

I hope it all goes well today - I'm sure if anyone can turn a house move into a fun day you and Jan can!
Take care,

Happy WOYWW

Take care with all that lifting.. Looking forward to seeing how this stone turns out.

BJ said...

Well I was half sorted today by taking my photos yesterday but only just got around to writing blog post. So difficult doing it in the evening as hubby is usually on the PC, in fact he wants to use it NOW from work too. I had to say NO. He knows what WOYWW means to me so succumbed!
Super painted stone Julia and don't do too much in the moving/driving department. If you get tired let everyone know, please.
Hugs BJ#24

Twiglet said...

Enjoy your role as chief van driver Julia! Hope all the move goes well for that little friend of ours - give her a hug from us all. I love that painted pebble - I like a bit of repetition when it comes to crafting - it saves having to start with a clean slate and lots of imagination every time. x Jo

Nothing better than the smell of fresh sunshine on one's laundry!
Love the Welcome rock and I see the red one's still hanging around!
Have a great week

Thanks so much for still hosting this lovely feature, Julia! I don't participate very often, but I really do love WOYWWs! I promise, I will try to visit and share more often in the future!

Greetings from Vienna,

Really do like that stone. Hope your energy level stays high. It's a good feeling to accomplish things in the morning. I always feel then I've the afternoon to do what I really want . Glad you are out and about

Anne L said...

Good morning Julia. I am loving your word stone and it is so beautiful. Glad to see you are feeling better and what a great friend you are to sweet Jan and her DH to be the driver today, hoping it goes smooth and quickly. Have a fantastic Wednesday. Hugs ~Anne L #7

Sharon Madson said...

Well, I was on my knees up on my chair to take my photo this morning, but glad you weren't doing any stunts! I haven't driven a van for years. I used to drive the church van with Sunday School kids, but don't think I would have the nerve now. LOL Have a great day! #33

Monica said...

Stacy Sheldon said...

That is so interesting that the shadows hit your desk like that Julia :)

Shaz Brooks said...

Hi Julia, I'm back now. We've not been told anything more than we already knew, but the surgeon is a really lovely man, which is good. For now, we'll have to be a maybe for the crop, as he's planning on end of Sept, early October. Will know for sure closer to the date. And I still forgot to photograph my stone, to be fair, when I remembered, it was getting dark, and it's on the patio table, which is filthy from the rain, lol. I have to go clean it, and I'll do the photo at the same time. Love & hugs, Shaz #3 xxx

Your stone is very pretty! I sure understand about intentions! Sometimes the mundane things, like washing, have to come first.

I am seem to be lacking in the mojo department, too. But I think my mojo is coming back slowly - I can feel it. :-) Have fun moving. I recently helped a friend move her shop from one place to another and I moved my craft room. As long as it isn't your stuff- it will be great. :-)

I agree that you do make time for what you want to, but sometimes it seems like it's the world that is out to get you. Great looking stone and great looking desk!

Morti said...

Hello! It's still Wednesday, so I'm sneaking in late....

Kim said...

Love your stone! And I have to say; if I had to put wash out, it would never get done; so Yay You! Hope You and LLJ Had a success moving day. Enjoy the week.

Marit said...

I can almost see that washing waving on the line... the weather is so beautiful that I can do laundry twice on a day รกnd get it all dried outside within' an hour - did all the laundry and looking at the empty laundry-bag gives me the feeling that I might have become a good housewife after all, ha! Have a great weekend Julia! Love from Holland, Marit #23

Sylvia/LittleTreasures said...

I don't have my normal computer working. I tried to send another email but don't know it it went thru. Don't shop or mail anything to me..will explain when things are normal here. Sylvia

Shoshi said...

Thanks for your visit, Julia, and yes, you've sussed me out - I do rather like butterflies lol!! I had such a lovely time with my friend and she loved my studio. Her coming was the impetus I needed to get that awful mess cleared up! I feel a lot happier to be in there now.

Have a great week.
