We have sliding glass doors that open to a patio and the deck with the hot tub. Oh, how we have enjoyed relaxing in it at the end of the day! It is totally secluded from the street.
We have a very nice kitchen. The sink is in a corner which has a stainless steel dish drying rack.
There are sliding glass doors to the patio from the kitchen, dining room, and living room on the main level.
It has been fun to rediscover some of my art quilts and paintings that have been packed away. This one is called Sunday Drive. It is on the kitchen wall just to the right of the pass-through. It represents my husband and me on our Gator, driving through the Christmas tree farm at the top of the mountain where we have our little place. You can see our dog, Kasey, along with a deer and a wild turkey peeping out from the trees.
Our front yard is now paved with asphalt, as the driveway comes right up to the front stoop. It is surrounded by raised beds of azaleas, backed by dogwoods and crepe myrtles. I can't wait to see it in the springtime. I set out a bench, a little table, and some planters in front of the azaleas.
There are lots of woods all around us.
But the best part of the yard is looking down at the pond. There is quite a steep hill that leads down to the pond. From our balcony, or back deck, you can view the pond through the treetops.
The leaves are starting to turn autumn colors, especially the dogwoods.
Speaking of which, we are going to South Carolina tomorrow to sign a contract to get our cabin built! We have selected the builder, contractor, and floor plan. Lots going on!
