Oh please, oh please, come right on in...we're ever so glad to see you!
As I mentioned last week some time (or maybe earlier...I have lost track), I am taking part in the Bloggy Tour of Homes. Therefore, I rushed home this evening to move piles of mess around in my house so that I could take pictures with no mess in them. Remember how I said I was going to clean for you? Just kidding!
Anyway, please come in...
As you can no doubt tell, this is our front door. We never use it. We prefer to enter through the garage. However, the garage is a mess, so you won't be seeing that!
Here we have the living room. Before I moved here, this room got very little use because Bill would just retire to the bedroom to watch TV at night. Now I used this room a lot because it is the room with the air conditioner in it. I also love my couches, and I sit on them often!
This is the kitchen, where I don't cook too often. But I will when I am done with nursing school. I have promised Bill. Those dish towels say "Sister Mary Margarita." That's three-fold funny for us because (A) we are Catholic, (B) my name is Mary Margaret, and (C) we love us some margaritas! Okay, moving on!
Bill's office...also, I guess, my office. Home of the blogging "magic." That's about all in the house. The master bedroom is not at all done, so we will not be going there. The boys' room is, well, a boys' room, so no visits there either. Let's head outside...
This is some of the woods behind our house. We have many wild things that either live in them or cut through them on a daily basis. They are my favorite feature of our property.
This is the view from our front porch. That is not our house...it's the big house across the street. That tree-covered mountain the in the very background is Camelback Mountain, home of one of the Poconos' many ski resorts.
And that, my friends, is our happy little corner of the world. We plan to fix this here place up and make it more home-like (paint and pictures on the walls will be a great start), but for now, this is where we spend part of our days and most of our nights.
Thanks for stopping by!
