another new home

Hopefully this is our last stop before home ownership, but who can say for sure? This month we moved into a Cape Cod duplex, which was oozing with charm and the residue of previous tenants. I’ve finally worked my way through enough of that mess to be able to offer a little tour for those who’ve yet to see it in person. I’ll show one room per post, and by the end of the week you’ll have seen it all.

Here’s how it looks from the front,

deck and kitchen doorThe deck door leads right into the kitchen, and from inside the view of the yard looks like this:

view from kitchen to back yardThe yard itself looks like this. It’s mostly creeping charlie, with a patch of grass at the end where the shade gives way to sun. To the right you can see the neighbor’s Adirondack chair engulfed in hostas (she has a thing for hostas) and to the left you can see a small garden area against the garage wall. The dirt on the near end is where I planted flowers. Hopefully they sprout soon!

back yardHere’s the view from the deck toward the yard and garage.

back yard, garage, deckHere’s the view from our side of the deck toward the neighbor’s side. The pickets alternate so for the most part we’re shielded from each other if we happen to be on our decks at the same time.

That’s pretty much it for the outdoors! Next time I’ll invite you in, promise.

    Thank you for the tour (outside anyway). I’m looking forward to seeing the rest. It is awfully cute and homey; we often just a little clean-up and we’re that way also.

    I don’t mind the “grass”; hey, it’s green!! Your deck furniture looks quite at home and not so squished as at your apartment.

    See you soon in Missouri.
