This is a Friday photo feature that anyone with a blog can join, courtesy of Rhonda's Down to Earth Blog. It opens the door to us sharing our lives through these photos and gives us all a new way to discover each other, and maybe form new friendships. Your photo should show something at home that you're thinking about TODAY. If you're in another country you should join in when you read this, even if it's still Thursday.
To take part, all you have to do is post a photo on your own blog, write a short caption explaining it, and link it back to Rhonda's blog. Please visit all the blogs that appeal to you and leave a comment. Slow down, take the time to cruise around and enjoy your cyber visits.
Last night I had to head back to a house that I also visited a few weeks ago now as a favour for a volunteer organisation that I assist.
I thought about the house when I was first there - god, it seemed HUGE! Last night I confirmed it - it IS huge! Seriously - you could have 100 people inside the living area (which is sort of set up in zones but all in one large room) and not notice how many people were inside...
I got to see downstairs in the guest room - it's as large as our lounge/dining/entrance and hallway all put together! It comes off a huge media room with a full sized billiard table in it. The kids' bedrooms were off a huge area with the biggest TV I've ever seen in my life... and I could go on and on but I'm sure you get the idea.
I would love a house that big. I really would... Well, I think I thought I did....
This house was what I thought I really wanted. It was huge, minimalistic and not much stuff out - but what was out was all impersonal decoration sorts of things, and nothing that showed it was anything but a house.
Hmmmmm - is that what I want???
I came home and looked at the warmth in our house. Our house is probably 1/10 the size of this one (and ours isn't all THAT small) but it had such a different feel to it. Like I was sitting in a foyer of a fancy hotel. As for the TV - how do you watch a TV properly that's that big???
Nope - that's not what I want.
