This is my favorite place in the whole house. It is my quiet place. It is not usually so very quiet. But if I get up early enough, I can spend an entire hour here with my dog and my coffee and my Bible. The screen to the left of the chair is my laundry closet. The dryer heats up my cozy little space on the cold mornings. Base housing can be a little drab and dated, but you can make it your own as long as you have a quiet place to sit (and of course a little dog to sit with you).
