Fun Monday Assignment for April 20th

THIS IS A STICKY POST! SCROLL DOWN FOR RECENT POSTS.

Fun Monday - office

Not long ago, a very small tornado hit right next to my office building. It didn't damage the building, but apparently disrupted our power, killing my office computer in the process. For four days at work, there was little I could do but wander around and work in other offices until my own computer got fixed.

While I was a nomad, I noticed that other offices had their own unique art. Sometimes it had something to do with work, sometimes it was inspirational - sometimes, the owner just liked it.

So, my assignment for you this week:

Take your camera to work and take pictures of the things that inspire you as you work or that inspires your coworkers. Ask them (or yourself) what it is about that particular object or picture that makes the work day seem a little easier.

If you don't work outside the home, take a picture of the thing that helps you get through the day and inspires you to have the best day you can.

Sign up in the comments and I'll add you to the list!

Jill (Lil' Mouse) / Janis (Jan & Jer) / Molly (Return of the White Robin) / Patience / Faye / Mariposa / Margaret the Misanthrope / Amanda (first time player) / Grace / Island Rider / BobbieLeigh / Sandcastle Momma / Hulagirl / Karina / Church Lady / Gattina / Joan Gee / Tracey / Hootin' Anni /

ha! I'm first. I work at home (ha ha, and my coworker is 5 months old so I'll have to see what inspires her!) thanks for hosting JMS

Janis said...

sign me up. I am retired but I think I can find something that inspires me.

Molly said...

Sign me up, I know of at least one work of art at work.

PinkPiddyPaws said...

I would LOVE to do this one.. but sadly, my office isn't my own yet (YET!!) so my artwork is in a box.

But let's not forget my fuzzy pink flamingoes from my previous place of employ! ha.ha.ha..

Patience said...

Hey! I like this one!! I'm in!

Faye said...

I'll play, Sayre. Surely there's something in the retirement digs that inspire.

Mariposa said...

I'm playing...

margaret (the misanthrope) said...

Also - I hope you are OK! I heard that there were 2 tornadoes in the Tampa area yesterday. I'm not sure where you are exactly (I don't think it's Tampa) but I was worried. You're still updating FM signups, so I'll take that as a good sign ;-)

Amanda said...

This is my first time here but can I play ? I am a SAHM of 4 boys so I do not get paid but I definitely do work! ;)

grace said...

Of course Amanda, you can play! Sign me up Sayre, hope I can get a good pic by Monday.
