Ruby Tuesday

This weeks Ruby Tuesday hosted by
maryt/theteach, at Work of the Poet, is
on red things in your office.

I don't exactly have an office of my own,
but I do have a desk and I found some red
items in amongst the mess of papers, scribble
notes and mass of long standing filing issues.
Yes I have filing issues...boring!

A book by Stella Cameron, Cypress
Nights, I'm enjoying very much. Eclipse,
by Stephenie Meyer, which is still waiting to be
read even though I have had it since sometime
in 2008. Three poetry books, two of them very
old and I guess a novice poet would have some
classic poetry books wouldn't she! A red pencil,
red ink pen and a packet of Glow-in-the-Dark
Play Foam, a gift from my friend in Utah. A
card from my daughter to me, apologizing for
being a brat, telling me she loves me and thanking
me for my understanding. That by the way, is
the most important item on my desk, let alone
in my collection of red.

Have a great Ruby Tuesday everyone! :)



  1. Hello Eaton,
    I love your pile of passion, the poetry in particular.
    Nice composition with the pecils and on the top, the most important note from your daughter.
    I too collect these notes.
    They are eternal heartwarmers.
    From Felisol

  2. Yes, that note is definitely the star of the bunch. A real keeper.

    PS I have a giveaway going on on my blog that your daughter might like. Stop by and check it out.

  3. That card is a real treasure! Never ever get rid of that one!

  4. I agree, the note is super sweet!

  5. One can never have enough books and yes they tend to pile up in an neverending to-read-heap...! And that note is such a treasure, I know my mum have kept similar ones of mine, for some odd reason she likes to show them now and then...;)

  6. A hint at a writer's desk for sure!

    It's always good to be perusing more than one book at a time. I'd never get through mine if I didn't.

  7. I love the note!

    My desk is such a mess, you wouldn't be able to find any red amidst all the paperwork.
