House Meme

When you walk in your front door, which room do you enter? We have a little entryway but it mostly opens into the living room

Do you have a dishwasher? yes thank goodness!

Is your living room carpeted or does it have hardwood floors? carpet but the next house will probably be tile as we want a southwestern adobe type of house

Do you keep your kitchen knives on the counter or in a drawer? in a drawer...a couple of drawers actually

Do you rent or own? own -- well Master own's :)

How many bedrooms is it? it has 3 bedrooms but 2 of them are not used as bedrooms - one is Master's office and another is my studio area.

Gas stove or electric? gas and I know I am in the minority when I say I miss electric

Do you have a yard? yes but we live in desert climate so we are landscaped with rocks so it doesn't look like a yard that I grew up with. The yard is an area I would like to improve as I think it would look better with some bushes and trees. Right now it is pretty much just rocks. I would love to have flower garden but my allergies just can't keep up with a garden and it is not fair to get it and then Master have to do the work on it. So no flowers :(

What size TV is in the living room? hmm not sure it is fairly large to me but I know Master would like a flat screen -- and those are quite a bit bigger and wouldn't really fit in our entertainment unit.

Are your plates in the same cupboard as your cups? Same cupboard, different shelf. Glasses are in a different cupboard though.

Is there a coffee maker sitting on your kitchen counter? yes right next to a toaster. Other appliances on counter is the kitchen aid mixer and a microwave. A lot of time our indoor grill or crockpot is on the counter too as I those so much - grill in summer - crockpot in winter.

What room is your computer in? The computer I use is in the studio. We have 3 active computers going all the time then a few external hard drives and 2 lap tops.

Are there pictures hanging in your living room? yes a big print, then 2 pieces of art (one by me) and then several of Master's gorgeous photos too. Plus we have family photos on the entertainment unit.

Are there any themes found in your home? kind of a mix -- of modern, old world and southwestern -- yep a little eclectic. No set design or theme really. Just warm and cozy I think.

What kind of laundry detergent do you use? Purex allergy free -- it is the only one I have found that really doesn't break me out.

Do you use dryer sheets? sometimes with that they don't cause static cling with the kitty cats.

Do you have any curtains in your home? yes but also blinds. All the rooms have blinds and curtains. Except the bathroom. They have frosted glass and then lace curtains.

What color is your fridge? white, but quite a few magnets adorn it. As Master pointed out that we never use the magnets really. I said no they are just there to be pretty or amuse me! :)

Is your house clean? at the moment I would not say it is clean. But it isn't really dirty either. It is okay.

What room is the most neglected? neglected in terms of cleaning my studio it never looks clean. It just has so much stuff in it - hard to get it to a totally clean and totally organized place.

Are the dishes in your sink/dishwasher clean or dirty? dirty -- I need to go load dishwasher in a moment and get Master's lunch while I am in the kitchen.

How long have you lived in your home? Master has lived will be 11 years this year. I have lived here officially 5 years in May.

Where did you live before? umm I lived in Cleveland.

Do you have one of those fluffy toilet lid covers on your toilet? no

Do you have a scale anywhere in your house? yes one in each bathroom.

How many mirrors are in your house? one in each bathroom and really I think that is it...hmm I never realized that we don't have mirrors. My Mom has mirrors all over her house....I wonder why I never use mirrors to decorate.

Look up. What do you see? 2 prints on the wall -- One by Da Vinci another by Rossetti, a little shelf with a candle and a picture of my dog under one print and a little shelf with a teddy bear and a princess tin under the other, and then an altered altiod tin that has clay sculpted on it, a Buddha mask and a print about enlightenment under it.

Do you have a garage? no something again we hope to have in the next house.
