I'm in my hooooooouse...at the taaaaaaaaaaaable...on the iiiiiiiiinternet!
(I hope you sang that in your head while you were reading it.)
So I promised you photos of the upstairs and the outside, right? Let's do it.
First though, Mary "reading" to Charlie this afternoon. It's Are You My Mother?, one of my all time fave kids' books evah:
Messiness level 11, but man...that's a heart melter right there.
Okay, so where did leave off? Living room...bathroom...
So let's go back to the living room and up those stairs. C'mon vamanos, everybody let's go!
|The stairwell is over that half wall on the left. This green isn't true to life. It's...weirder?|
|the big girls' room (for now)|
|The views, y'all. The views out every dang window make a heart sing|
|Now we head down the teeny hall...|
|...to the original bathroom on the left. That toilet? 1927. Still flushing. Amaze.|
|This is "the green room" at the end of the hall. Enormous. Right now Paul, Cecilia and Mary are in here.|
|A view of the other end of the green room. That's another closet you see on the right.|
|this is the view as you leave the green room. Lot's of "interesting" color choices here (I'm looking at you, blue carpet.) Linen closet at the end of the hall.|
|Then to the right back to the area with the half wall and stair well. There are more built ins on the left there.|
|Ah, there they are. Terrible photo, but you get the idea. Storage! Yay!|
|Try not to fall straight down this tunnel, m'kay? It's like firefighter training what with this ladder disguised as a staircase...|
|Ah, the front door. A fluffy dog. We go outside now? Yes, let's.|
|The view to the left as you exit the front door.|
|The view of the front door after you exit the porch|
|It was raining, literally, when I took these, so every single one is from the shade of a tree. Trampoline is off to the right, house is on the left. Playset and barn straight ahead.|
|This is the view from underneath the playset. There was a dog breathing down my neck as I took this.|
|the back of the house from the spruce. the pool fence is there on the right|
|Still standing under the spruce- can you see the little bench in that small cluster of trees?|
|Made it. Go me. This is the house and playset and wet dog (lower right) from the bench|
|And the view of the property from the bench. The yard ends at the fence, but outside the fence is The Rest (13 acres in all)|
|Looking straight up from the bench. Not. Too. Shabby.|
|And here's the barn, over yonder. Shall we go through that door on the left? We shall, we shall.|
|Voila! It's like a carport, but for tractors or whatever. We'll figure it out eventually....?|
|Out the back of the barn. It was POURING rain at this point and I just had to not go any further. There's a pumpkin patch over that ridge, though. Like a LEGIT pumpkin patch. Crazy.|
|Exiting that door- the view of the house and bench and stuff...|
|This is outside the yard fence on the opposite side of the bench tree grove thingy. Apple trees! Don't they look like Christmas ornaments?|
|Over to the left is this amazing maple. I just love it and it's mapliness|
Wow. I probably shouldn't have put the upstairs and the outside together, huh? And really half the photos were unnecessary because they're, you know, pictures of some grass and trees. Which you can see by, like, driving around and junk. And I'll stop talking now. Because it's late. And sorry for all the pictures. Hope I didn't break the internet.
