Yesterday, Greg, Evan, Olive and I went out to look at a house that my friend Donna told me about the night we went out for dinner. Because I had a couple of Margaritas that night, I got confused about where the house was and my wandering around looking for it got me nowhere. So I emailed Donna and she gave me the details.
Donna informed me that this house is rather old. Well, the house is one year younger than me. Does that make the house old or just mature? She also said that it hasn’t been lived in for a while. It would need a bit of work to make it livable. But Greg and I have been talking about downsizing for a while and the price is right, so we decided that we should at least drive by to see how it looked in person.
After we looked it over and talked about it for a little while, we decided this particular house would be a bit too much of a downsize. So unless we bought the house next door to it too and he lived in one and me in the other, it probably wouldn't work. We would share custody of the pug Olive, of course. However, I’m a bit afraid that that would defeat the purpose of downsizing, so I guess it’s back to the drawing board for us.
|I like the way the ivy is growing up around the chimney. I think it's very pretty.|
Since we were sort of in the vicinity and it was time for lunch, we went on out to Janine’s Frosty in Ware. Janine’s is one of the places around here where you can eat outside and take the dog with you. On the way to Janine’s, we had to go by Breezeland Orchard. To our great delight, Breezeland was open. So we just had to stop and see if they had any of their famous Cider Doughnuts. Yay! They did. Greg picked up a half dozen. I’m not a big fan of doughnuts, but those darn doughnuts are out of the ordinary.
We had lunch at Janine’s.
|Good advice from the folks at Janine's.|
And then took the long way home.
On the way we got behind this guy. I joked that Granny must have fallen out somewhere along the way but I think he was actually taking the chair to the Salvation Army, which is just around that curve.
