Not sure where the last week or so went too, but it has gone by fast. I have been busy knitting of course; I am making (at least) nine gnomes for Our Little Man's birthday in September as part of the take home gifts. Mind you if you read The Knitting Basket's blog post this week, here, it turns out knitting is good for your health? Who knew?
The weather of course has been stinking hot and humid. I am so over summer now, I mean SO OVER IT!!! Roll on the nice cool Fall weather. And as usual the month of August is just flying by.
Meanwhile here we are with another week's worth of homes for sale.
This week's "Home of the Week," is on the market for $2 million. I of course don't like the price, but I do like the house itself. I love the entrance up to the house. It's an older home but very bright and airy inside with nice landscaping.
The "Condo of the Week," is on the market for $550,000. Again it is nice and airy. It says in the blurb that a couple with two children live there, but when looking at the photos I get the feeling that they have probably moved out. As trying to keep a place that tidy with two young children is nigh on impossible. I just don't see any clutter at all?
Once again the, "Cottage of the Week," is a mansion and is on the market for $2.7 million. I wouldn't change a thing, but who can afford that price? Mind you it would be a year round home for us. It is pretty light and airy again despite all that wood. I would love to be able to sit on that dock and watch the world go by..........though in this case it will probably just be ducks as it's a private lake!!
Now back to reality here is "Gill's Cottage of the Week," is on the market for $459,900 and for that price you not only get a 2 bedroom log home, but 2 guest cabins and 16 acres. I love it, wouldn't change much and would move there tomorrow!!! Very oldie, worldy, reminds me of Little House in the Big Woods, don't you think?
Finally a bit of a funny story. You know how I am always complaining about the gardeners and what a poor job they do weeding the gardens? I transplanted a rhubarb plant from a tub into the garden. Every time a couple of leaves pop through the soil, the gardeners think they are weeds and chop them off with their hoes. I have had to put bamboo poles and string around the area, in the hopes they leave it alone.........can't win can I!
