Home of the week and other things...

This week's "Home of the Week," is okay I suppose.  It has some good features, like the stained glass window details, and from what I saw of the back yard it looks pretty, and the basic bones of the home is fine.  However I do not like the kitchen, or the way it is decorated.  Which is down to personal taste and they would take their furnishing's with them.  Then there is the price tag of $1.75 million, bit pricey I think?

This week's "Cottage of the Week," is not for me.  It's too big and who on earth has a boardroom at their cottage?  The views and area it is located in are stunning and I would love to live there in a smaller place.  The last photo of the steps down to the water in winter is just stunning.  I'll pass even if I had the $6.5 million that they want for it!!

This week's "Condo of the Week," isn't really my cup of tea either. there seems to be a lot of wasted space if you ask me?  The comments weren't overly complimentary either!!  The skull and cross bone wallpaper in the powder room was an interesting choice????  Paying nearly $3,000 a month in condo fees, is just plain crazy?  I'll take a pass on this one.

Finally if you want to give the kids something to do for the last couple of weeks of the holidays, why not send them to a summer camp for the rich people?  You can read about that here.

I posted another couple of book reviews on my book review blog (link on top right of page,) if you want to take a look?

And finally dh..........well it didn't take long to hear those words, "I'm bored."  It was 2pm on Thursday when he uttered those words.  Mind you we had been out running errands (with him being chauffeured everywhere) in the morning and didn't get home until lunch time.  We had eaten lunch and I headed outside to cut grass by 12:30pm.  So in that hour and a half he was bored, despite me giving him the weekly flyer's to read, plus I bought him three magazines the day before to read (reno/diy magazines.)

I am hoping by the time you read this on Friday morning he will be feeling a little better, as he will be able to take off the bandage and have a shower.  Having a shower perks everyone up I think.  Luckily I "accidentally" forgot to remind him to bring his tools home from dd house, other wise he would have been down the basement today renovating!!!!

God grant me patience!!!

Does your dh do sudoku or cross words or anything...I doubt he does. I don't think I have ever known a man that does...not of our generation.

As to the home/cottage and condo...I think they would have to pay me to live in them. The cottage felt like some kind of public lodge, and well, the others are just not my taste either. I cannot even figure what I would do to them to make them more me.

Sorry to hear about your dh and hope he heals quickly. The homes are always interesting and fun to see how everyone decorates to their own personal taste. Thanks for stopping by.
