We call it The Homestead...because it's several different homes...
one big...two not so big...on the same piece of land.
We also call it The Homestead because it truly is the place...we all call HOME.
We also call it "the country."
Greg and I got married here.
For the location of the wedding...the invitation read:
"in the country."
During the summer...we all congregate..."in the country."
We do the same things every summer.
We swim...we eat fresh vegetables...we swim....we walk...we fish in the pond...we workout...we swim...
we bake...we tye~dye tee shirts...we go on frog hunts...we build bon~fires...we paint rocks...
we wear the same things over and over each day...and we take a bath on Sundays.
It's kind of like SUMMER~CAMP.
The husbands come to "the country" on the weekends.
My parent's live "in the country!"
Are you following me? ;o)
This is where we have our bon~fires.
We also shoot fireworks here!
Greg proposed to me at The Fire Pit!
Right there on that bench...and he asked me to marry him and gave me a ring!
Can you believe that!
Well he did!
This is BEAR...my favorite kitty!
Henry found paradise when he followed my parents home from a walk 12 years ago.
This is The OLD Truck!
have an OLD truck parked in the yard!?
This is the truck that is used to haul all the leaves away!
This is The Cabin and The Storage Barn.
He's an artist you know.
I really wanted to bring this painting with me to Bainbridge Island!
But I let it stay in the cabin.
That's The Cabin!
It's very GREEN in the SUMMER!
This is the CRAFT~SHACK!
Once everyone in the family painted their faces on 12x12 inch pieces of wood.
Now all of those self~portraits are hanging in the den...in The House.
This is THE TRUCK!
Well believe it or not...everything does have a name!
How weird is that!
Guess we've named everything without even realizing it!
Do you name things at your house?
I'll be featuring The House and The Apartment later!
I just LOVE HOME...don't YOU!
