Well, I promised to show you what my house looked like ages ago. I thought I would finally keep my promise to you. This is what my house looks like from the outside. We had it painted about a year ago to a little bit darker shade. It turned out really nice and we were happy with the results. The cage you see on top is to protect our two air conditioning units from pigeons. They like to build nests underneath it. It can be a real pain.
When you stand on the front step with your back to the door, this is what you will see. It actually rained today. It only rains in Las Vegas about five times a year. It is very unusual to see this ground the wet, so enjoy the moisture.
Behind the front door, this is the room that greets you. It is the living room. I think this room has come together very nicely. The futon at the back of the room was moved there out of desperation. It was the only place I could put it so that I could make room for a little schoolroom for my kids upstairs. I am actually very happy with it in this location. It makes for a very snuggly reading nook.Turn your head slightly to the left and this is what the rest of the living room looks like. I moved the piano over into this corner and it is great. Now all of the couches surround the piano and the kids will gather around it to play their violins also. Since I adjusted it, I still have not moved the mirror over center of the couch. I really need to put that on my Honey-Do list for Rinar. (Get the drill out, honey)
One of my favorite spots is right in the center. This is my original painting of Jesus Christ by Dan Lewis. It is wonderful and now that I had an extra end table, I put it right under the picture. What a great additon, huh? The flowers are from Rinar for our anniversary yesterday.
Now I have my back to the stairs, and you can see our little schoolroom. There is a table, desk and a bean bag. Behind the bean bag is a map of the world.
To the right of the room is a book shelf we put in a few months ago. I haven't really organized it yet, so it is pretty disastrous.
