Through the Looking Glass

I love looking out the windows here. Although the house is a little in disarray and the walls are bare making it not quite picture ready, I can definitely share some pictures of the views outside from inside the house.

The dogs favorite windows are the two directly on either side of the front door. Because it has been cold, Nate has been keeping our wood stove going. The wood shed is on the other side of the driveway across from the front door. Sammi (below and right) especially likes to watch him do that.

In the picture below Nate is working on getting a fire started. He makes good fires. One day he wasn't around to keep it going and it was up to me. It takes the know how and dedication to keep a strong fire going. I could get better at my fire-making skills.

To the left of the entrance is our dining room and there are two big windows with awesome views. Out the bigger window is a
beautiful cherry blossom tree along the driveway. Out the other window are more trees and the rest of the driveway that is lined with flowers that are beginning to bloom. You can also see out to the hills. In the morning the fog hovers at the base of the hills as the trees on the hills gently appear through the mist

In the kitchen we have a potting window along the counters, so as we cook we have a beautiful view. And we have a window at the sink (below the wall clock) that looks out to the back yard.

Upstairs we have views to the backyard, the right side of the house and the wooded area on the other side of the driveway. Wherever we look, it's a beautiful view.
