Welcome to My House!

Okay, more correctly, it’s an apartment.  But, “My House” sounds better!

I’ve been in Panama City, Florida, for three months now and I still haven’t posted any pictures of my place.

So, I guess it’s time for the unveiling. 🙂

This is a cool shot I took of the reflection on the ceiling coming in from my balcony’s French doors.SecretMy spare bedroom is still “under construction” and is being used as storage.  I’ll have to have it ready for my sister’s visit in October!

One major thing I ran into decorating was limited space compared to what I had back in the Quad Cities!

So, here’s what it looked like when I moved in.  Much to my chagrin, the living room is so awkwardly shaped and my furniture was so big that I had to cover the fireplace!EmptySo, here it is.1 LIVING ROOMI had to put my wine rack in the living room just to center my table and chairs in the dining room under the light.  It would have imposed on guests sitting at the table.2 LIVING ROOMHowever, it gives me a chance to display some of my wine and olive pictures I took in California and the awesome treasure I found in a thrift store in San Francisco!  I found the fish light display at a yard sale in Moline!3 LIVING ROOMIn the three months I’ve been here, I haven’t eaten at the dining room table — maybe when I have guests!LR DR1 DINING ROOMKitchenMy bedroom…1 AP BEDROOM2 AP BEDROOMMy bathroom…1 AP BRThe three pictures you see below are a celebration of my 50th birthday.

The moment I turned 50, I was sitting at the stage of the Moulin Rouge in Paris sipping champagne and watching the exciting show.

Then, it was off to my dream destination, Tel Aviv, Israel.

The picture on the bottom left is still the best meal I’ve ever eaten at Benny The Fisherman on the Mediterranean Sea.  That’s just the “salad” portion of the meal!

And, the bottom right picture is looking toward Tel Aviv from Old Jaffa, a city that’s more than 3,500 years old and one of the oldest port cities in the world.2 AP BRThe guest bathroom with photos that I’ve taken since being here.TAMMY BATHROOMMy balcony…1 BALCONY2 BALCONYWell, that’s it.  This is where I hang my head.

    I said what I felt in response to Andy’s comment. I know you had to downsize and have been waiting to see photos of your new home. Thank you for sharing. You have done a great job in decorating with things that have special meaning in your life.

    Whether you evacuate or stay where you are I hope you are spared any impact from Irma. Stay safe Anthony.


    • Teresa,

      I’ll be staying either way. It looks slightly better for us today compared to yesterday. I hope that eastward trend continues.

      Thank you.

    I hope all is well and Irma didn’t cause any damage in your area. It makes me sad to
    see the devastation caused by hurricanes, wildfires AND Trump.
    I bet you are busy getting ready for your sister’s visit next month. Family is so special – I’m sure you both are looking forward to seeing each other again. Have a great time~~


    • Teresa,

      Irma weakened as it make it this far north. Other than working very long hours and days, we were spared.

      I’m ready for my sister’s visit, 19 days now!

      As for 45, no comment. 🙂
