So cute! It looks like an old motel was refurbished into apartments. Is your place the entire length of that first floor, or are you guys squeezed cheek-to-cheek in only half of it?

Now maybe it's time to post a pic or two in the "Our Kitchens" thread. Just sayin'...

When you have an hour or so to kill, you might like this thread that kgirl started a few years ago. It's one of my favorites.

This Is Where I'm From
You are right Cheryl. It is a great read. Also Kayelle and her husband Sous Chef have a fantastic travel one. Sous Chef started it even before he met and married Kayelle. So Kayelle is not in the first part. She comes later. That is a do nothing Saturday read when you have a day full of time to kill.

When someone takes the time to keep a blog, I make it a point to read it. Then I can make an honest comment on it. I would never make a negative one though. Only point out the parts I enjoyed the most. I have read some blogs that are so painful that I quit in the middle and never went back. I can forgive poor spelling and even English construction. It is not an easy language, even if it is your mother tongue. But when you write a sentence that starts with "I ain't got no..." I am out of there in a hurry.

So read Kgirl and Kayelle's blogs. You will love them both and be filled with envy.

Thank you CG... It does have a bit of a motel look, doesn't it? It was built as an apartment building in 1956.. It has been in one family since being built.. Great landlord...

I wish our apartment went the entire length...lol.. The second window (past the shuttered door) is to our kitchen area and wall of the next apartment.. Our apartment is only 700 sq ft...There are only 8 units, one of which the owner rents out as a vacation pad.. He is very strict as to who he allows to stay there as the perm tenants are mostly older folk...
