Ok, I meant to split this post up, but got carried away. Lots of snapshots behind the cut, sort of like watching vacation slides. Pics of where I live for avon7, and the Heart of my Home for seleneheart. Pics of my roses for ninquelosse and some fuzzy bird pics for mrkinch (neither of whom asked for them)







This is where we live. It's a long apartment with a ton of space, (which has previously kept me from moving) the two windows above the garden hose are the bedroom, the single window with the fan is the office, door and next two windows are the living room, and the two windows behind the out of control variegated eunymous are the dining room. The light in the upstairs window shows a glimpse of the phantom vacuumer.

The short roof just beyond our apartment is a laundry/boiler room. and the apartment it attaches to, which is a mirror of ours is where Robin Wood used to live. (Now a big chocolate labrador named cocoa lives there, with his people) If you turn before the laundry room, there is a big pine tree under which I have buried many a hamster.

The green SUV is our Saturn (please don't lecture me about having an SUV. If I was 20 I would probably have a hybrid electric but I need to step up into a car now, and if I don't want to be killed trying to see around SUVs and Vans. I have to be high off the ground. And I love my Saturn. I named her Vingelot, but Jim calls her Greenbean - guess who wins...)



we still have a field at the end of our block of apartments, and field and woods behind, but they have built "over 55 housing" in nearly all the surrounding farms now. There is a dry brook (dry most of the time anyway) where Jim has had to rescue many a duckling that fell through the grating in the parking lot.



by the time they are this size, they don't usually fall in anymore. We get ducklings all the time, sometimes as late as Thanksgiving (when they froze to death on my porch in the snow) because ducks are soooo stupid, and they so much like to do that thing that rhymes with duck....)



I was asked for the heart of my home - since you guys have seen pictures of my office/geeknest before, this is the mobile command center. Yes, Jim and I really do email each other across this couch. Behind his old lombard, you can see a hint of a sumo wrestler doll, currently wearing a top hat (my friends think its amusing to put hats on things). Tshirt which arrived in the mail is a gift to Jim from the_reverand, white package on the floor on my side is the package from avon7 with a tape of David Wenham in the second Murray Whelan movie and some wombat goodies. (just out of range on the magazine table are Gondorian Faramir and Coronation Faramir riding on kitsune) We spend way too much time here.


power book florentine - Jim on the headset, troubleshooting mac problems - probably for Chris, but possibly for Lee.


living room is currently still full of boxes of junk from Jim's Moms. (BTW- this is not the room where my books are. We consider the office the library)


my big Edward Scissorhands ( I took his batteries out because he cuts with the scissors when people walk by if he has them) Shall I tell you who the others are or can you pick them out?


guardians of the dvd player. When Aragorn arrives, he'll get the spot by Boromir and I'll move Elrond over by the Lorien archer.


heres the doorway before the winter dry set in. Yes, I have a flamingo in my window box. I also have three in the dining room window, dressed as the three kings.






the bird pics are fuzzy because they were taken through the screen.
woodpecker and bluejay. That bluejay has a whole peanut in his mouth. this is the handsome jay - I must have pictures of mamuwaldi the voodoo bluejay somewhere though...





these are my Brother Caedfael roses - they are under the beddroom window.



cannis lilly by the office window. Jim calls them The Star Trek plants.


fileg chickadee


my single piece of lawn statuary. She's so worn down you probably can't tell she is a little girl inexplicably clutching a frog to her breast.



marblecake stage goslings





roses by the porch oranges and lemons


the reason the apartments took my bird feeders down (I'm sure the fact that the woods was cut down has nothing to do with them coming up by the houses)



the very uncooperative swallows


a tit


the whites are in the doorway. They were here before me.
