Home is Where The Heart Is
1.What makes a house a home?
The family that lives there. Lots of love, laughter and memories!
2. How to you keep your house neat , tidy and clean? Do you find it difficult?
As a younger woman in good health, I loved keeping a clean and tidy home. It was a pleasure for me. Now with health issues it's very hard to keep our house/home in the order I would like. I manage and Mr D does alot to help. I'm thinking it might be time to hire someone on a regular basis to come clean for me.
3.Are plants important in your home.. or collections.. or wall art? Is there a theme you like to create?
I do have a lot of indoor plants, mostly ivies because they grow well for me. I also love things on the wall and I used to collect whatever caught my fancy. I don't collect anymore, just too much trouble to take care of.
4.What is a typical day/evening like in your home?
We live a very slow paced life. We usually sleep late because we stay up late. I love that we linger over coffee every morning. After years of having our coffee in a rush getting ready for work, it's great to have these leisurely coffee mornings. In the afternoons you'll find Mr D in his man cave listening to music or playing music. I spend time visiting with friends and family via my laptop or reading my Kindle. It's not unusual for us to take a drive in the late afternoons, sometimes we'll get an ice cream and go to the boat ramp at Sylvan Beach to watch the boaters coming in from a day of fishing. Mr D had a boat some years ago and went fishing often, he really enjoyed it. Early evening we're on the porch while the dogbabies play, by then it's cooled down enough to be outside. Nighttime finds us both watching television, I'll read and Mr D goes back to his music. He plays in a country music band for the Senior Citizens. Not very exciting but it's our life and we are happy.
