Another Sunday….a day of doing lots of different things and not really accomplishing anything.
I’ve been reading, although I haven’t finished The Appetites of Girls, which I hope to finish before the day is out. I spent some time this morning on my Weekly Sunday/Monday Updates post and visiting blogs.
And then I watched a few episodes of Breaking Bad on Netflix.
I finished Season I…so then I read for a while again….and then scanned some more photos. These are shots of my home in the foothills just before I left. We had painted the outside, built a new deck, and painted some indoor rooms, too.
The photo below depicts my “Ireland Room,” with photos of Ireland captured by my eldest son…and the walls were a sage green that seemed to “feel” Irish. I had a lot of dolls and bears in that room!
Here is another view of the room, with more collections:
And here is my Creative Corner, a part of the dining room where I wrote my first three novels. I did have a separate office, but moved my “station” downstairs so I wouldn’t be so isolated.
The desk area is very cluttered…and while I still have a bit of clutter in my office these days, it is LESS cluttered…LOL.
And here is the outside of the house, with a view of the deck.
From the dryness of the needles under the trees—and even on the trees—you can tell that California’s drought was very much going strong back then…in 2007.
Sometimes I miss this house….but it was too much for me to maintain. The yard was huge and there was also a guesthouse down the slope of the lawn.
Do you ever look at photos of previous residences? Do you have favorite places where you lived? Below is a portion of the great room in the guesthouse.
