Workdesk Wednesday #133

Somehow I want to rename today “WTF Wednesday.”  It is just has a nice ring to it! 

My idea that joining the WOYWW challenge would inspire me to have a tidier desk, was giggled at, quite a bit.  But I figured if you knew someone was coming by every Wednesday to inspect your desk, you’d keep it cleaner, or at least have something interesting on it. And that is probably more what WOYWW is about (that and feeding our inner voyeur).

Anyway, here is my desk in all its glory.  The prescription bottle is gone as that finally got all sorted out.  Things are a bit more orderly right now, but that never lasts long.

What I’m working on now is a recipe card swap.  In the pile topped with a red envelope on the left side of my desk are the other participant’s cards.  Mine are spread out in the middle of my desk.  I just added some green vines to the cards as I felt it needed a little something more.  I also glittered the whipped topping on my pies.  The rings on my desk are to collate the recipes with.

Other things to note are the red wrapped gift in the upper right corner—it’s a Christmas present to me!  Next to that is the gas bill which looks good, but that's because I sent them a huge payment earlier knowing that this bill would painful.  There is a red button that I found on the floor.  Next to that is a new stamp (car with tree) and another stamp (penguin) that needs to have a swap card made with it.

Hey look!  I cleaned up that section of the floor though!  While I often pile stuff on the floor next to me when I am working, I like to have it picked up again too.  There isn’t much room between the black cart and my table to the left, which you’ll notice I did not share a picture of (maybe next time).
And just for giggles and grins, here is Poppy, guarding us from the possibility of evil intruder cats.  Ever since she saw a gray cat in our yard out there, she checks outside every few hours.

No matter how many people are going to peek at my desk, it never has the desired effect of me tidying up at all, lol!! Why should you be any different :D
Love your guard cat! Who needs Rottweilers??!
Hope you have a fab festive season,
Hugs, LLJ #43 xx

What a great post! I think I may have to agree with the possible name change....how do we go about it? Think I'll leave that one up to you as it was your idea. Nudge nudge...do it, come on! When I began with WOYWW I was all tidy and careful about what was shown, my how things have changed! I shows it like it is. No typo there either I meant to say shows! So glad you stopped in for a visit I do love and appreciate your comments...too funny!
Thanks for the peek and have a Wonderful Christmas and All The Best for 2012

Looks tidy and organised to me but then I live in utter caos(according to my hubby in a 10" x 20" cleared space on my desk. We view our desks pretty much as we do life. After all beauty so they say is in the beholder. Have a great Christmas and I wish you a appy New Year. Hugs Mrs A.

Mrs A. said...

Should say of course Happy New Year. Typing with one hand is not good for either speed or spelling. Hugs Mrs A.

I think the mid week WOYWW always grab me from from behind but I am no longer ashamed to let my desk run around in the nude, what you see is what you get! Thanks for sharing in such a busy week! Hope you have a very festive and wonderfully merry time - see you in 2012! Sarah at 11.

Your recipe card is lovely and that cheescake recipe sounds pretty good too. :)

Gloria said...

Your workplace is definitely a wondeful spot. Love all you have there. Your recipe cards are awesome. Happy Holidays!

As you have seen from the state of our computer desk, even the thought of being seen on a Wednesday does not always keep us tidy. You should see my real workdesk - that is even worse. Yours, in contrast, looks remarkably clear and ready for work. You might like to pop back to my blog and read about yet another scam which seems to be doing the rounds (we have just been called from them), just when we are up to our eyes in last minute preparations. Have a lovely Christmas.

MaggieC said...

I love your answer to the scammers and cold callers.

Hello! I'm dropping by to greet you and your loved ones a joyful and blessed Christmas season! Your desk is impressively tidy today. Must be because Poppy has kept all the evil cats from messing up your desk. Thanks for sharing your life and projects with us in your blog!
