Still Remembering in September (to Post, that is...)

I don't have a lot of time tonight and I don't want NOT to post (thus allowing Lea and Lori to win the grits un-challenged...since I've already BEAT the Princess), so I thought I would share a few pictures I've had on my camera for a week or two.

Since you know I took the big step of heading back into the workforce after Bex started college this fall, I thought I would share some of the beautiful features of the late 1800's historic home I work in every day. I'm sure this big old house 'remembers a few Septembers!'



This is the front door in the foyer or "foy-A" as the Princess likes to talk about... These doors AND ceilings are massive and so beautiful. Sorry about the fire extinguisher marring the beauty.















If you were to come in that beautiful front door, this sight meets you inside. These pictures don't do justice to the rich, dark wood, or polished wood floors...but you get the idea, right? The pretty lattice door behind the stairs leads you into our office suite.

So...have I whet your appetite? Good. But, I'm sorry that's all you'll get to see. If I showed you a picture of the beautiful outside of the building, you local folks would know right where to find me each day. We sure can't have that! You know we must protect ourselves here in BloggyWorld and I sure don't want that stalker from my previous post to find me here!






Here's another picture that lingered in my camera for a bit. You know I can't resist posting these!!! This is Bex all gussied up in her volleyball uniform. Notice --our team wears shorts -- not butt-hanging out spandex. (Her shorts are a bit longer when she stands up!) She is just SO dadgum cute! (She'll kill me when she reads this...but she knows her Mom loves her!!!)


Stay tuned...

started college? She's not old enough for that! Is it dual enrollment?

Laura said...

Man! Not even an honorable mention in your first line. I have actually blogged more than the Princess in this September to Remember.

Kelley said...

Beautiful pictures!

Bex is so cute and tell her to COUNT HER BLESSINGS that she does NOT have to wear what we had to wear at that same school only 10 years ago for our volley-ball games. Maybe she could look at a few yearbooks to see how blessed she really is?

Only two pictures of the house? I love old homes. The house I grew up in was built in 1903, my parents current house is the first house built in the town I grew up in, built in 1865. Something about the style, the wood, the history. uh oh. Here comes nostalgia again!

I checked out your previous post and got a great laugh this morning, so thanks for that! Your daughter is lovely, by the way. It's nice to see they aren't making them wear 'cheek huggers' as we called our track uniforms!

Fuschia said...

I'm with fushcia! I want to live in that house! Fun post! btw, my dtr had to wear the butt hanging out spandex, luckily hers did not butt some....

Bex said...

You forgot to mention that we HAD to wear the butt hanging out spandex for club which was not very fun! The only thing though was that my butt wasn't hanging out...because I didn't roll them a gazillion times!

And I'm like SOOO uck!! ;/


I LOVE YOU MOM! =)
