And while I really like the neighborhood I live in, and I like the floorplan of my house, it just doesn’t seem like “home”. What it needs is more memories. I should invite people over to do things – have dinner, watch movies, talk, whatever, so that it is my home.
I’ll have to think about this. 19 months ago
The interesting thing about my neighborhood is while the houses all look quite different on the outside, there are only 5 floor plans for the neighborhood. I didn’t realize this until I visited a neighbor several years ago. Imagine my surprise when I noticed the house had the same floor plan as my house. I NEVER would have realized that looking at the exterior of the house.
Anyway both houses had the same floor plan but one house used directed lighting, color and a few other details to really make the house stand out. I am rethinking the lights in my living room to see if I should add directional light, and where the lights should point. 20 months ago
And I had the back fence replaced with cinder block. What a difference that made. I should have done this years ago but it meant that I had to take out all the plants along the fence.
Anyway, the wall looks nice and the animals think it’s their highway.
I also had the solatubes installed. Another task that should have been done a long time ago. They are a wonderful invention.
I am now working on having a brick patio installed in the front yard, because it’s the only place that is cool in the summer. 21 months ago
