home is where it’s 30 below zero

27 Jan

When I am reading I sometimes find it hard to visualize the characters or their locations despite the descriptions laid out by the author in the book, call me crazy but I would love if more books would include pictures of some kind, drawings, photos, anything that would help the reader visualize the likeness of the hero or heroine of the book.  Same with restaurants! Why do they refuse to include pictures? Many a patron would be less disappointed with the meal laid before them if they but had a picture to prepare them for what was coming…..

And in that line of thought I am including some recent pictures of my new home.  Of all the apartments I have occupied in my years (and there have been many) I must say this is my favorite….mainly because of the large window in the front room which provides not only much needed light and vitamin D but a view nice enough to be on a postcard…..that and this apartment is our first with free laundry!!! My wildest dreams have come true. So here we are with the grand tour:

We will start with the boudoir….mostly bed with heavy blanketing

As we leave the bedroom we enter the kitchen, newly remodeled

Once in the kitchen if you turn to your left you will see our spacious living room with the large widow that was afore mentioned as well as our dining bench with room for not only one but two people…..as you come around the right side of the couch you can see our comfy 3-seater couch and the ottoman with 1 million uses (not limited to computer table and storage bench)

As we walk around the sofa to the corner of the room we find what every home in Alaska should have…a sauna with complimenting shower and palm tree shower curtain

And at last the piece de resistance our rather large bathroom with up and down WASHER and DRYER….

And there you have it…our home for the time being.

    That is a pretty darned awesome bathroom sauna/shower thingy! Nice window, even from this view. I should send you some flowers to put there, but they would probably freeze like liquid nitrogen on the petals, so I won’t!

    someone’s been busy…cleaning that is, not busy as in not enough free time hah!
    oh, I’m totally jealous of your free laundry. Now you can leave your clothes in there for days, instead of on your floor – I’m saying you guys (Gentry) are slobs. Yea, I went there. Miss you 😦

      Haha, don’t worry, nothing has changed, I just didn’t take pictures of the messy parts 🙂 I’m a thinker
