Perhaps they are not stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy. Eskimo proverb

It'S My LiFe....

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 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 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 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 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 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 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..:)
