|This is the view from the front door into the living/dining room. The play room is the door to the left and hubby is standing in the doorway to the kitchen and service area.|
|This picture has nothing much to do with this post but was taken in the same time frame as the rest of the pix here. I've joined TAG TUESDAY and this was my submission for Baking.|
It's smaller and things are tight...but I LOVE it!!!
|This is the living room window - which is about 10 feet wide - from the dining room. I'll show you some great views out of this window as I blog along. That's the playroom door again off to the right and the hallway next to it.|
I have worked like crazy trying to continue on with my normal life - minus art and computer time (mostly) - and still get things in order - and it's just about come together...and I absolutely love it here.
Who woulda thunk it? We haven't lived in an apartment in our 34 years together and it was awhile before meeting my hubby that I did. It's fabulous!
Did I mention I love it here?
|This is Arcelio - one of the porters who work at this building - standing outside of the playroom door. He likes that view as much as I do.|
We didn't know we were living in an oven. (When I said that to my Colombian Quilt Group - they replied in unison, "WE DID"!!! The house rarely got a breeze blowing through it for at least 7-8 months out of the year but this apartment - because of how and where it's situated...catches the breeze beautifully. Even if the rest of the city doesn't seem to have one. We actually have to close the windows and hardly EVER need a fan. WOO HOO and whoop-de-doo and Yeee HAWWW! And the mosquitos don't fly up at our level so the plague is gone. Thank you God!!!
|I was in the laundry room when I took this shot of the kitchen. It looks totally different now.|
We're on the fourth floor, on a slight hill with a magnificent northern view of the city sky-line, partial views of Rio Magdalena and we can actually see the Caribbean breakers WAY off in the distance. We even get to see an occasional ship go by. The Sierra Nevada - which is about 2 hours drive East from here - only shows itself on special occasions - and when we have a view of it...it's UN believable. Most of the time the mountain range is hiding in the clouds but when it comes out...it makes me feel so small and insignificant. (Only in relation to my size). And I'm a big girl.
|This is the service area, laundry, maid's room and bathroom. Playroom window is on the left. I wondered why in the world they'd put a window there...until we moved in and the wind showed itself.|
I'm adding pictures in order taken and giving you the barest bit of info in their subtitles.
I can't wait to get back to your blogs on a regular basis and thank you for continuing to contact me to see how things are going and for thinking about me.
|It's that chronological thing...this was taken around the same time as the above pix...which BTW...were taken about a month before we decided to move. Anyway...this is a typical dashboard in a Colombian vehicle. Love it.|
Love, peace and all things groovy to you and yours.
|Another Tag Tuesday tag. This was, I think, the last piece of art I did while still at the house.|
Create your life,
|Flip side of the above. When I told my friend the theme was gardening she asked me where the garden was!!! I just laughed. I can't help it if people - even dear friends like her - don't "get" my art.|
|And this was taken just before I started packing up my old playroom. I'll tell about these in my next blog. Bye-Bye old playroom. I will miss you. Sorta. Maybe not.|
