Interesting House Design, Don't You Think?

I remember telling fellow blogger Adam (when he was away on his trip and blogging about the interesting houses he observed in Canada)  about a very cool house around the block from me.  Today I hopped on a bike and went over to photograph it.

I really like the design of this house and find it very different and interesting.  One thing I couldn't help noticing as I looked over the photo was an image in the right hand window.  Was someone looking out the window as I snapped the picture, or was it a....

Summer Thoughts

I've been away from this blog for a while due to being on vacation.  I guess it's time to start posting again.

Random thoughts:

I think it's interesting how both my daughter and I are now college graduates with a BA in English. That means we may find ourselves applying for the same jobs. Even though she tells me, "But, Mom, I'm just starting out and you have more experience", you never know. Employers might want to hire someone for entry level pay. We'll see what happens.

I'm still trying to exercise every day even though we've been going through heat waves here. Walking around outside some days is like walking through the desert. Must have a bottle of water with me!

Television has been totally boring over the summer so I'm reading. I finished Jeffery Deaver's Roadside Crosses and now I'm rereading The Lovely Bones. I am finding that as I've gotten older, I don't seem to retain many details from these books anymore. With some passages from The Lovely Bones it's as if I'm reading the words for the first time.

I love the commercials for Old Spice because they're funny and entertaining. Bravo to the advertisers for coming up with something I can actually watch without wanting to press mute or change the channel. I'd say with 90% of commercials, I either leave the room or do what I just described. And good for the Old Spice makers, I actually bought some of their product for my husband.

And now I'm going to go look for some shade or a cool room.
