Not at all sure how to respond to this challenge so I am trying it two different ways….
Any comments would be helpful, on the post as well as on the “how”!
I think this might be cheating (or maybe just a shortcut) but I cannot get WordPress to cooperate this morning. It is refusing to give me access to my own photos.
But I remembered this post I did about my house, quite a while back and thought maybe it would qualify.
Here’s a quote from it. I hope you’ll want to read the rest and see my favorite windows.
She has 32 windows. From 20 of those, you can see right into other windows in the house.
Just think about that for a minute.
What one word describes you best?
What is set as the background on your computer?
My sweet James
If you have been to a foreign country name those you have been too?
O man, a great way to answer this question would have been to put a small photo from each country right here. But they are all paper photos, in albums, in boxes, in the storage cabinet…the absolute last things to let go of in our current downsize (and the first things to save…well, after cats and people…if there is a fire.)
But here are the countries…not very many:
Mexico-all through childhood, having grown up in San Diego
Canada-also often, having lived most of my adult life in Washington state
France-for the 1192 Paralympics, Albertville and Tignes were the two places I visited as I was then married to a cross-country ski team member who was blind. (He got the bronze.)
Fiji-twice, sailing the Southern Lau Group both times and for more than a month each time
Jamaica-three times, twice for USATAA conferences and once, a just for fun trip
This could be seen as a pretty boring list but I wonder how many STATES in the USA others have camped in? For me it is FORTY SEVEN out of fifty!
What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
View from my street
View from my window
My favorite window, before and after shots. It is in the shop/music and woodworking studio that James and I turned into a guest house. We call it the Bed and No Breakfast, because we’d love your company, but I ain’t cookin’ for you!
My James is amazing at reclaiming, recycling and repurposing old beauty. This particular window came out of an old mansion in Spokane. Built in 1910, it was one of the first houses in the area to have electricity. Apparently it was a beautiful house with a huge sweeping staircase. It even had an elevator. Along with this window, James salvaged several others that he used when building his house back in 1980. Even the flooring in our living room (old rough fir) came from the old mansion’s attic.
