A Home In Florida

The Kitchen

This is the kitchen before I put anything in it  😀

Dining room’s accent wall and molding.

One of the deciding factors of this apartment for me was when I walked in and saw the molding AND the accent wall. That was pretty much that, lol. 
The laundry room.
The apartment complex has a referral going with the appliance company to rent if you don’t have any and the prices are great!
This looks kinda of small till you walk in and look to your right. Then you are very pleased.  In the apartment in TN, a person practically had to step into the tub to shut the door! I have space for 3 rugs, the one for the toilet, the tub and in front of the counter 😀
This is just inside my closet.  I love it, especially since I can use Daddy’s Armour for the sewing supplies 🙂  Then you walk the rest of the way in and it’s a small room.  A very happy “woman” closet.
Odd angle, but you get the idea 😉  Needless to say, I have to control myself when I go to the Masjid where there is a wonderful discounted clothing “store”, lol.  The clothes are donated for one reason or another, usually to buy more.  My favorite style of clothing, the three piece Indian/Pakistani sets are in staggering abundance 😀

Plants in bloom

Sent from Kathleen’s Blackberry

This picture was taken just a few minutes ago to show how fast the blooms are taking off.  The previous one was taken earlier in the week. Pretty fast, ha?

Those little ducks came from Rachel, Ma-maw, in TN.  Every time my grandson comes to visit he wants to play with them. They are so cute they’re hard to resist. Since they were outside in snow the enamel on them has spider web cracks in it and if handled too much, it flakes off 😦

Everything is growing so well that I’m beginning to feel that soil and pots are going to be on the “need” list soon 😛

I have a couple more pics to post of the apartment and the plants.  I really love this place. It matches exactly what I was looking for, for myself.  I think the only way it could be better would be if it were a house, but then I’d have to mow the grass, lol. Even the Electric bill is civilized, but then the complex is only about three years old.

The plant just to the right is variegated and looks like a miniature of a variety here in Florida that I like very much. Of course I’m going to blank the name of it so when I remember I’ll post it.

Chevalier!! And now after looking it up, I think that the name I was told for the original is incorrect 😦

Anyway, that one was quite larger until my grand son and his cohort in crime, the grand puppy, got together and chewed and plucked the top of that right hand stalk off.

As you may be able to see it has begun to recover very nicely.

In the center on the second shelf you can see an Aloe plant that Bente, my friend of many years, gave to me before I left Florida back in 09.  That plant has also traveled and been kept alive all over the place and through the winter in TN also.

More to come…
