My "office" is a desk built into a wall of cabinets in front of window in the kitchen.  There is a beautiful view east over rolling meadows to the great marsh, outer beach and ocean.  I could go on and on about the view because I lose a lot of time, when I should be working, looking out this window! The window sill holds a small sculpture of a dancer (in my soul I am a dancer), a couple of love birds (representing me and DH), a group of beach stones and sea-glass, and a wireless digital thermometer reading the temp. outside. 

In my immediate surroundings are the usual: printer, i-Mac, backup hard-drive, telephone, notepad, cubby holes with bills, binders, pens etc., calendars (one for our appointments, one for the suites in the house and one for the cottage).  There is a small basket that contains the misc. things I have accumulated over the last few days: 2 catalogues for comfy clothes, 2 pair of sunglasses, gloves, gift certificates, business card for interior painting, and my mother's bills.

I just scratched the surface. The sound of a sliding crash gets the response - Avalanche! in this house. My desk is a flat surface - I should not be permitted near a flat surface.

At my B&B desk here ,right in front of me is a large calendar ON THE WALL with all the days divided into 3 (as I have 3 rooms). Then the usual office stuff. Above the calendar are shelves. to the right a cork board for more stuff.To my left a printer & horizontal files always opened. I use a lap top and wifi, have square + c.card machine, chair, waste can, another cork board, shelves, land line phone ,cable tv, etc.etc. It works for me.

LOL, I have  small opening for my trackball. That is why this week's work is being done NOT at my desk.  Too much paper to spread out, collate and crunch numbers from!
