That Elephant Again and A Freeze Arrives

So, back on the subject of that elephant in my life. Here is how the elephant in the city now looks. Next time I'm down there, I'll try to remember to photo the view. The website is http://www.tiberisland.com and that shows the views. They have a top floor apartment looking west (water and monument views). At one time, my father owned 4 apts on this floor, 3 on the view side.

and here is what remains of the elephant's backside, a kitchen not upgraded in 40 years. Clean, but in need of upgrade.

Meanwhile, as I said, Weatherdude said it would freeze last night (it did, of course) and his plants had to come back inside for the winter. Good thing I like plants. He's actually reduced the number, if you can believe that. But what follows is the result of yesterday's work in the living room.

As for my little countrified living room, that's here:

Doorway. Doors need to be closed at night soon as the temps drop. Almost can now. Pile to the left is all clothing. Pile to the right, by the cat tree, is all Salvation Army stuff.

Moving right along, here are some of the Dude's plants taking over the window ledge and corner.

And to the rest of the room...

Miss E's corner, where she likes to eat her snack after school. Boxes to the left are family items that must be sorted and disposed of. Note assorted Dude plants, including tree.

Close up of E's corner showing final pile of boxes blocking stereo. We don't need to get to the albums, the Dude said. These are my mother's wools for rug making and her sewing machine. No, I don't know yet what I'll do with them, but she definitely wanted the wools kept.

Yes, this is the front door. Luckily, folks in the country know to come to the back door.
