For today I'm using this writing prompt, which is from The Daily Post:
You step into an acquaintance's house for the first time, and discover that everything--from the furniture, to the books, to the art on the wall--is identical to your home. What happens next?START
"Whoa, this place is a mess!"
Oops, did I say that out loud?
I look around and see an entryway that looks familiar. Very, very familiar. Exactly like mine. It's an odd feeling, but it's like seeing my own space through fresh eyes.
"Um, nice place."
Everything is in neutral colors: Chef White walls and beige carpet. The living room is sparsely furnished with an old love seat, a lamp, a dead plant, and another plant--this one tall enough to bend to get light from the window. The dining room holds overflowing bookcases, a table that's used as a desk, and a few mismatched chairs.
Look at that pile of yarn. Obviously someone accumulated it and then quit crocheting.
I walk down the hallway and see the powder room.
Finally, a room that isn't all neutral! The walls here are an interesting shade of greenish blue that probably doesn't coordinate with any colors other than the white vanity and the gray counter. And, of course, the Chef White paint on the trim.
The kitchen, too, is strikingly familiar. Again, someone needs to declutter this space.

Out of time, and I wanted to describe the family room, which is our prettiest room and our haven!
