Now Don't Laugh

Hello, Dear Ones! I'm going to show you The Little House, our little condo we'll be moving into. If you missed my last couple of posts, we've sold our house and are going to live in The Little House for awhile. It's here in Galveston. We own two of these little puppies and would have loved to have been in the one on the ground floor but we have a new renter and just didn't have the heart to kick him out so we kicked out our renter on the second floor who has lived there for 8 years! :)  Not really, we had a gentleman's agreement and it worked out fine. This one is on the second floor and my little mother, who is in heaven now, lived in the one right below this one.
Like I said, please don't laugh. I took these snaps with a little point and shoot and they are not too good and our renter was moving out so you'll see some of his stuff. I was getting measurements. I'll let you take a peek if you promise not to laugh. This is the entry! :) Boy, I can really poke a lot of things in here, can't I? :)
The condo has a vaulted ceiling in the living room and that helps to make it look a tad bigger. Are you laughing? I heard someone giggle. :)
Teeny tiny fireplace with no mantel. Now we've had this unit for about 9 years and we used to come over and spend weekends here sometimes. I'd also come over to be close to my little mother who lived just below - we used an intercom in case she needed me.
Well, I was in a 'gold' mood all those years ago and painted the walls. What was I thinking? Looks kinda mustardy. Are you craving a hot dog or a hamburger? I am! ;0
This is looking from the living room to the tiny dining room on the left and the kitchen is on the right.
Behind those doors is the tiny little pantry. Are you ready?
 You promised not to laugh! Attack of the killer water heater! :)
 To the right of the tiny dining room is the tiny little kitchen and honey, I mean tiny!
We bought new appliances around 9 years ago and then decided we'd rent the place. I had wallpapered the kitchen with a Rooster wallpaper and I believe I'll keep it. I loved the yardbirds then and I love them now.
I had painted the cabinets a soft yellow all those years ago and notice there are no knobs on the doors or drawers. I've got some fixin' to do.
Here's something I did all those years ago...I painted the stove hood red! It was almond colored and I didn't like it so I went to the auto store and found some heat resistant paint, taped up everything and spray painted away. Then I passed out! Not really, but the smell was something else. I guess we could have bought another one but I wanted to be awesome and that was even before I had started blogging! :)
 The laundry room! Please, no laughing!
The master bedroom! Well, the guy was moving out after all. I heard another giggle! No, I heard a lot of giggles!
Hello, there! This is the only little bathroom, A tiny little bathroom. Do you see the hairdryer on the wall? Yep, just like a hotel. Fancy schmacy, I'll tellin' ya! :) Olden yucky medicine cabinet in the wall! Like I said, I've got some fixin' to do. Guess what? I'll be the first gal to ever have lived here. The first two owners of the condo were single guys and our long time renter guy was single. So I've got to get some girly going on here y'all.

Well, this is where we're going to live for awhile. Are we crazy? Our house was 3,660 square feet and the tiny condo is 905. Needless to say, lots has gone into storage.
I do have something marvelous to tell you. I know I've told you before but I love saying it...we're going to travel in Kiki for a while and then...are you ready...we'll be buying a house in New York close to our grandbabies! Yip yip! I'm so excited about that. Don't know exactly when that will be but it will be. So, I'd love for you to come along with me on my journey as we start to fix up The Little House'.

Since our Little House was built in the 70s,

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

So Happy Together

Imagine me and you, I do
I think about you day and night, it's only right
To think about the girl you love and hold her tight
So happy together

If I should call you up, invest a dime
And you say you belong to me and ease my mind
Imagine how the world could be, so very fine
So happy together

I can't see me lovin' nobody but you
For all my life
When you're with me, baby the skies'll be blue
For all my life

Me and you and you and me
No matter how they toss the dice, it has to be
The only one for me is you, and you for me
So happy together

I can't see me lovin' nobody but you
For all my life
When you're with me, baby the skies'll be blue
For all my life

Me and you and you and me
No matter how they toss the dice, it has to be
The only one for me is you, and you for me
So happy together

Ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba
Ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba

Me and you and you and me
No matter how they toss the dice, it has to be
The only one for me is you, and you for me
So happy together

So happy together
How is the weather
So happy together
We're happy together
So happy together
Happy together
So happy together
So happy together (ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba)
