my front entrance
We had rain most of yesterday, so taking pictures outside this morning gives such a fresh, clean look to any subject... even my dirty front entrance to our home. Our home is very Southwest on the outside, but very Midwest on the inside. People are always kinda surprised when they see the inside of our home, because it does not match the outside at all.
I wasn't planning to share a story today, but I just couldn't pass this up!
Ok, get this... I was brought up sooo Midwestern/ Scandinavian that the first time I had ever had Mexican food was a year out of high school, back in 1976. I was visiting a friend in LaCrosse, WI... we were out with friends and they all wanted to go for Mexican food. Because I had never had Mexican food before, they said... and I kid you not... "Linda, then you had better order your taco on a bun!" A BUN! And seriously, it was no different than a sloppy joe! But they didn't think I could handle the taco shell! It still cracks me up!
Went to an estate sale a few weeks ago and bought this old green rickety step stool for a dollar... and then later found this green wooden thingy... and put the two together. I'm thinking bird seed... garden tools... whatever.
When you walk through the front entrance, you will see this courtyard on your right. A cute little atrium patio area. Koda & Wiley (our dogs) love to hang out there. Nice & peaceful.
