conceivably i could fiddle with the photo and make it lighter..
but i don't feel like it..
and it was dusk when i took this photo..

i'm looking forward to the end of the day..
all i have to do is get through..
let's see..

10 classes..
soccer practice..

an hour worth of driving..

and then i can rest..

cause i really didn't sleep worth a hoot last night..

actually not at all.

somewhere deep within adrenaline will get me through the day.


tonight or tomorrow my husband comes back home.

i've only seen him once for a few hours over the past 2 weeks.

if i could wave a magic wand the house would be nice and welcoming..
but, alas, it is what it is..

lived in..
to say the least..

but, at least his kids will be welcoming ..

i might be snoozing in the bed..

and snoring soundly..

That's a long time of not seeing your husband Foam, sleep well tonight and sweet dreams.

I like that shed, it's a little like mine.

ANNA-LYS said...

I hope You have a wonderful weekend together, it must feels like Chrstmas! Cheer up!

The Ramblin Irishman said...

Okay, I have to ask; where has hubby been? I like the picture I think it has character. Does someone actually live in there? I see curtains or something over the window. I can appreciate those sleepless nights when your loved one is gone. Cheryl suffers the same way when I am gone.:)

Pink said...

Gorgeous the rich colours and textures.

Hope you have a nice reunion

Have a great reunion with your hubby and get some much needed sleep.

I love that pic the way it is!

X. Dell said...

Seems like a lot of hell to go through to get a snooze. Best to you, Freundin.

Actually, I like the ddarkness of the photo. It gives that shed an attitude it probably doesn't have, otherwise.

Indigo said...

I think the photograph is fine as-is. You and Pink are such awesome photographers!

I'm sorry you didn't sleep well. You'll probably be able to sleep once you and hubby are reunited. i know i have trouble sleeping any time partner-Doug is away.

oh... and thanks for visiting my site and offering support for me during a tough time. :)

The Phosgene Kid said...

My old Frat House! Lots of history there, oh yes...

foam said...

it's almost 7:00 pm .. and i'm home eating something hot and spicey..

yes, it's a long time. i was supposed to go with him for part of his trip, but then circumstances took me to Mississippi.

i'm hoping so too.

usually he's only gone for 2 to 3 days a week and sometimes only 2 - 3 days a month. these were just different circumstances.
i think the shed has a lot of character. nobody lives there. at one time it was used as a shed to store craft supplies .. if i remember correctly.

yes.. thank you. the textures always attract me..

thanks .. :)

yes, it's a keeper as is, i think.
i'm feeling the sleep coming on. i'm hoping to sleep well tonight.
actually..the shed has always had a certain amount of attitude .. even in bright light.


it was so little that i could offer. i hope you are feeling better.

i KNEW it! believe it or not, the original title of this post was called "phos's other house"...
no kidding.

Jay said...

I'm glad you didn't fiddle.

SJ said...

Fiddling with the light might not hav e been a BRIGHT idea. Ruining a good idea is not to be taken LIGHTly.

Sorry couldn't resist - I am irresistible.

Maybe we could get X to record a lullaby to get you to sleep.

foam said...

good one..

and you, sj, couldn't resist, could you.. and, of course, you are irrestible.
x. recording a lullaby? sounds lovely, actually. if x. could come up with a lullaby to put the insomniacs of the world to sleep he'd become wealthy and have the eternal gratitude of all of us.

ANNA-LYS said...

special delivery service; Lullaby :-)

Little Lamb said...

I hope you enjoy each other and make time for the one's you love.

SJ said...

And... this post does shed light on a dusk lighted shed.

foam said...


norah jones .. how very lovely .. :) thank you .. xo
I need to find out how to link music like that. it's such a nice way to give a musical gift.
she's got a beautiful voice. and i love her elvis tribute. (I don't know who sang it before elvis.)
This song makes me want to slow waltz though... which is what we did last night ..;)

little lamb,
we certainly made time for each other. .. and for the kids too .. eventually ..

it does? well, that's good then..
i always think i'm too brief or cryptic.

SJ said...

Ja! This post is a delight :)

ANNA-LYS said...

You tell me how You do this:

˙˙os ʎןǝʇǝןdɯoɔ ˙˙˙ssǝןɯɹɐɥ ɯ,ı ¿ǝɯ

I turned my keyboard upside down, but it did not help :-(
I also did some gymnastics, I rather not tell You about ;-)

and I will tell You how to embed links

The Phosgene Kid said...

The house isn't anything a $100 couldn't fix...

Little Lamb said...

How do you write upside down, foam?

Anonymous said...


i'll think on it. ..tomorrow;)

actually i think it could be fixed for 99.95..

little lamb,
i fergit..
maybe i'll remember tomorrow. ..after work, etc. .. right now i'm going to bed.

Little Lamb said...

Awwww, have a good night's sleep and a good day at work tomorrow.

ANNA-LYS said...


Hey, come out of that shed


Middle Ditch said...


Merelyme said...

hiyah foam...lovely shed. perfect lighting in my opinion. hope you got some good sleep.

ANNA-LYS said...

Pick-a-boo ;-)

The Phosgene Kid said...

Coudl be the sugar shack down by the railroad track...

Gledwood said...

That looks like a very well-repaired version of my own house... just kidding. At least that shed looks like the door shuts properly haha!

I hope your husband's come back by now ... did he bring Ferrero Rocher?...??


Ruela said...

¿Vai una cerveza fresca?
Con mucha espuma!

foam said...

i'm still trying to catch a good night's sleep and a good day at work.
maybe tonight and tomorrow..

middle ditch... :0

and how's my favorite merelyme? i hoping to sleep tonight.

yea, except there are no railroad tracks, good espresso or a little gallie in black leotards

and a peak a boo to u 2 .. :)
i'm about ready to come out of the shed, but not quite.

it was actually really well built...
and, hey .. that's right..
no ferrero rocher .. no chocolate whatsoever .. ;/. he's gonna be in trouble tonight now .. ;)

si! claro!
quiero una cerveza fresca ahora!
donde esta mi cerveza?

Little Lamb said...

Ho hum.

The Phosgene Kid said...

Looks like El Mirage's City Hall.

foam said...

dum de dum..

there are similarities, but i think this one is not long enough..

lonesterdog said...

Love your style and grace

ANNA-LYS said...

I saw You ;-)

ANNA-LYS said...

Dear Foam,
Take the time You need, I did absolutely not mean to force You. I understand, had only forgotten.

(( Love ))

(I'm getting old, am I?)

LADY LUXIE said...

I like that shed...

In fact, I want a own veeery own shed where I can keep my stuff' and most especially, my computer.

I'm going to lock that shed of mine with a lock that no teenager can pry..I will surround my shed with an alarm system that will automatically alert the cops if someone is trying to break through in order to use my own computer...

My hubby isn't home..he usually spends 3 to four days a week out of town...I think my neighbor's are already thinking i must be his mistress..


foam said...

thank you

oh, i didn't think you were pressuring..:) i thought you were being funny.
i was just trying to explain why the link wasn't happening yet.

yes, i wouldn't mind a shed..
however, a seperate suite would suit me nicely too .. :)

A watershed or a wood shed?
