Thank You For Being A Friend

It was with deep sadness that I learned yesterday that Estelle Getty passed away at the age of 84. I grew up with the Golden Girls in the 80's watching with my grandmother and losing one of them is like losing her all over again. I remember hearing her just laugh and laugh when watching this show and her favorite was Sophia. So RIP Estelle you will be missed.

Come Take A Tour With Me

I finally found the time to take pictures of the house I moved into at the end of March. After losing the flakey roomate and thinking I was going to have to move a miracle happened and G landed a fantastic job that will allow him to pay for half of the rent and all utility bills allowing me to stay here and not break my lease. So on to the tour.

Front of the House

Entrance from Front Door. G's Office and Laundary room to the right, hall closet to the left and living room straight ahead.

Living Room from Entrance. Kitchen is the right back corner and deck is seen from windows.

Living Room from Back Door.

Fireplace. I know what your thinking who needs one in Southeast Texas but you would be surprised it does get chilly in the winter down here.

Office /Craftroom I will be putting a chair in here along with a table so I can stitch in here with privacy and watch t.v.
Another view of my office. I will move my t.v., dvd player, and recorder in here once I get a chair put in here.
