I didn’t get around to this challenge on Monday, because I had to take a new picture for it! I couldn’t just look through the old ones I had on my phone. . .
But I like that Mundane Monday has themes now. It means we have to be more intentional about what we post. This week’s theme is Switches.
I’m taking the opportunity to neaten up and show the area where I charge stuff. What’s shown in the picture is my daughter’s old iphone in the center, two external batteries on the left, and on the right a charger for regular rechargeable batteries, where I charge the batteries for my metronome/tuner, the batteries for the Wii that we don’t use much anymore, and the batteries for the Christmas candles that we put in the windows last month. Sometimes there are more things there being charged (like my own iphone, but I needed the slot for my daughter’s, and I needed my own phone to take the picture in the first place). All the chargers are plugged into a surge protector, which can be turned on and off with a switch.
Charging stations have really taken over in the past 5-10 years. Before that, people didn’t even have them, let alone consider them essential. This station is downstairs in our house, in the family room. I make a point of leaving my phone there overnight to charge rather than having it in my bedroom. Bedrooms should be for activities that don’t need a phone!
For the Mundane Monday Challenge #144. Mundane Monday Challenge encourages you to take more pictures by being aware of your surroundings. The philosophy of MMC is simple. You can create a beautiful picture even by focusing on a very common looking, dull or so called Mundane subject!
