#ThursdayDoors — X

Before I committed to the A-Z Challenge, I charted what letters #ThursdayDoors would fall on. Believe it or not, I knew X would be one of the easiest.


I see this door every day, multiple times a day.

This is the side of my humble shed.


Oh, I wish I could tell you she has fetching walls covered in murals, a work bench, and a window to warm seedlings — but she doesn’t.

She does, however, boast the unattractive juvenile graffiti of her former owners, spiders out the yin-yang, and burnt-out overhead lights, because some jerkface beloved family member left them on for God knows how long.

She has a concrete foundation, sturdy shelves, and more than enough space.

She wishes you’d caught on her a sunny day, maybe a day in June when her roses are in bloom and her colorful pots are brimming with summer’s flowers.

She’s purely utilitarian, but she knows her potential.

She wants new light bulbs, a shop vac, paint, a window, and well, a few weeks of my constant attention. What she gets are scowling people rushing in and out to retrieve pots and tools and things.

Bless her, my poor humble shed.

    I adore your shed. We used to live somewhere where we had one, but it is no more. And oh how I miss her. You are a lucky woman.

    Nice way to incorporate the door with the letter. 😀 I wish we had a shed but it all gets shoved to the back of the garage. You know, all those important junk things.

    I like the look of your shed with the pretty door. I am sure she looks beautiful in the height of summer with the flowers in bloom all around her 🙂

    Very clever indeed. That’s a nice humble shed you have there. Gotta luv the way she just quietly sits there never making a fuss while standing at the ready.
    I’ve been wanting to put one up in our back yard to get some of the clutter out of the garage, then I think maybe I should just do away with all the clutter instead :-/

      Thanks. Sometimes it’s hard to decide, isn’t it? I love having it for all the yard things. Maybe you should evaluate your clutter and then decide. 🙂

  10. She’s a ‘work horse’ instead of a ‘show pony’ and she’ll just stay there and wait for your attention. Nice. 🙂

    As much as I tried, I couldn’t think of anything clever to say. Unlike your clever use of the letter X 🙂
