Weekly Photo Challenge: Home

First off, I have to say I am really enjoying the categories that WP is picking for us.  They give us scope to use our imagination but also some direction so we aren’t bouncing off the walls.  Good job!

I am including two photos for “Home,” although if we can only have one that counts it will be this next one:

A lot of the above is symbolic.  Shown here are the three features that make my home…my husband’s chair, made specially for big men (he is 6’4″ and weighs 270 lbs.).  When he stretches out on it, all three of our dogs–Ling Ling (pictured), Oreo, and Tilly Tot–jump up and he is covered in a living blanket of dog.  Finally, there’s the plant that was the scary monster in last week’s “Shadows.”  Not so scary now 🙂  All in all, my heart is filled with my husband, my dogs, and beautiful plants.  That’s home.

This next one I added because really, a kitchen is the heart of any home.  This is where I usually entertain visitors who just drop in, where we eat most of our meals, where my husband and I often have a snack and chat at night before bedtime; and where I feed the dogs twice a day.  I also love my kitchen.
