I am participating in the "It's my life along with Rondell and tattered threads and Nancy..I think this is a great way to get to know folks...so here goes..:)
1. What did your home look like? Was is a house or an apartment? What color was it? Was it one story or two? our house was/is a brick two story house with kitchen, living room 1-1/2 baths and 3 bedrooms upstairs, big basement down stairs with the laundry room, dads work shop, and two bedrooms..My mom still lives there currently..
2. What was your neighborhood like? our neighborhood was a long street of houses that all look the same..you know the kind where one builder buys all the lots and builds maybe 2-3 different style homes..
3. Did you have a lawn? Did you have flower beds? Did you have a garden? Did you help care for the flowers or garden? we had lawn and I mowed it for $5.00 a week..part of my allowance..my dad would mow the edges for me..then I would take over..we had lots of flowers. a snowball bush and my favorite a lilac bush..I want one to this day..as I would cut the flowers to put on the kitchen table...we also had a nectarine tree and plum tree..and it was so nice to be able to pick one and eat it on the spot..they are no longer there..we did not have a veggie garden that I recall..my dad was the chief waterer...I get it from him too..I love to water and just day dream...
4. Did you have a front stoop or porch? we used to just have a stoop when we were young and when I was a teen my BIL built a front porch and it had a railing and a little roof..now we can go out (when I go back to visit) and sit on the porch and gossip about the neighbors etc...
I hope you all enjoyed your visit..I have to get ready for the hairdressers..getting the back of my hair cut...then coming home to water and get some crafting done...I hope... have a wonderful tuesday..:)
