Back by Popular Demand: More Photos of the Mexican Home Office

“Blog experts” like to tell you to never focus on the mundane details of your life, but whenever I do, I somehow get demands for more details. A few weeks ago, I wrote about my new home office — how I moved it out of a dark, spare bedroom and into our spectacularly sunny, happy dining room.

When I let it be known that we did a little house painting, I got requests for more photos of said “renovation.” I have always wanted a red room — always — and I finally got my wish granted:

Home Office 2

(The chair behind my desk is holding a space heater — it’s frigging cold in Mexico City in January!)

Have I mentioned the nice view of Parque Mexico?

And because I haven’t posted a photo of my favorite perrito in a while (yes, he now prefers to wear Mexican blankets, and no, how dare you accuse me of staging this photo to make it look more Mexican!):

    Love that red! That should cheer you up a bit while you’re working. Your littel perrito is adorable. What’s his name.

    I have three Chihuahuas named Jonesy, Sissy and Tinky. Come by and say, “Hi”.

    Hi Joy! I’ve been following your adventures for a while, and I wanted to share something funny that happened to me today. My husband and I were talking about going to Mexico for vacation, and I found myself saying with “I have a friend who just moved to Mexico…” , and I stopped a laughed because I was talking about you! I don’t know you, but I enjoy your sharing of your daily trials and tribulations…even if it’s going to the hardware store! Just thought I’d let you know, it made me smile!

    Cool stuff.

    Somehow I think that writing talent matters. When I saw the title of the blog advice book, “No one cares what you had for lunch,” I chuckled.

    The personal is human. And I think that, at least for a little while longer, we like that.
