think to exclaim about how happy I am. I truly am!
Finally, after patiently waiting for a new cable to arrive that connects my camera to the computer, it
is now possible to share the reason of my happiness.
Several of you have asked to see photos and when are photos coming, so here we go.
opened for air and breezes........and to let the warm air in on cold days. Yes, we have already had a few of those last week. Lows of 30F! first thing in the morning. Brrr.
Above is the dining area which is immediately to the right of the front door.
This is a photo of the seating area in the large open living/dining and kitchen area. If some of you "sharp eyed" people notice the grey sideboard, it, in the previous house was pine. I had it stripped and painted grey. The same color as the grey fabric pillows. It gives it a new twist.
Because of that, I was able to create three different areas. The shelving behind my bed was at the other house and my "handy dandy" painter took it in his pickup truck and painted it the same color as the walls. Using the vertical space, with the twelve foot high ceilings makes it feel cozy.
And, all designers know that tables with cloths can hide a multitude of things. The table to the right of the bed has the grandchildren's toy box underneath it! All they have to do, is pull it out when they are here! Plenty of play room.
of that and do have some plans for the flower beds that are here with no flowers in them. One will be a rose garden with the bird bath in it. Another will just be all kinds of flowers.........Yes, a dear friend said I would love working in the gardens but at the time I doubted it. Now I know that she knew me better then I know myself!
The previous owners had these planter boxes made. I'm so glad that there was an opportunity to buy them and leave them right where they had intended for them to be and where I enjoy them all the time.
the car. I also have many plants out there.
Another factor that adds to the enjoyment of this house is the fact that only to the right of this house is there another dwelling. I get views of the sunset and the sky from several windows. Something that I enjoy immensely.
It's a new season. No stairs is huge. I'm happy to report that I absolutely have no more pain in my back or knees. All this has happened in less two months. A true gift.
Yes, I'm still walking with a cane because I am still having balance issues, but I am working on that!
There are other things that I want to share, but I'll save that for other posts. Now, you, my family and my friends can see where I live. It was the RIGHT move in more ways then one.
By the way, if you are reading this and live in Los Frailes, please let me know. I would love to get together with you now that I'm on this side of town. If you cannot figure out how to comment, my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
