New Apt Photos and Feeling Fallish


Before and after.  A few things still have not found a home.  


Buddy sunning on the porch and sitting in the (what I call) German Ivy.  Note my cute Sloggers.  Perfect for early walks in damp foliage.


Life with two dogs.  My daughter's Dashund Chu and Buddy have finally got the leash business straight.  I was tangled up for most of the first week.  Both dog beds are in my bedroom, each with their own blanket.  Both dogs like to be covered so no sense fighting it.  Two beds.  Two blankets.  And many, many bones. 


As I said, not everything has a home.  My beloved ice maker (for making ice dyes)  is sitting on the floor beside my bed.  I'm not sure how it landed there but it is very heavy and I'm not moving it until I know where it is going.  (There is no space in the very small kitchen).  The kitchen is a whole other story.  

The outside view is typical of apartment complexes.  What I like most is the sidewalks.  The complex itself is very big.  I live in Section P if that tells you anything, and every little section has an area like this in the middle of the squares.  This gives me lots of room to walk to keep up the daily walking I'm supposed to be doing.  

I've reduced the pixels in all of the pictures so some aren't clear but they give you a general idea.  


With regard to Fall.  I love fall colors.  I also love all this dress my season color business.  I found a new color specialist I like who uses a little different approach than the months and I'm playing with it.  As many of you know, as you age - and gray - your hair color, eye color and skin color might fade.  The new system uses the tones and contrast in your hair, eyes and skin.  Hahaha.  Takes a lot of courage to post a naked face picture (naked body too but let's not go there).  When I get this system figured out I'll post my best colors and you can tell me what you think.

  1. He is. I just wish he would get with the no-barking program. I'd hate to be evicted before I've finished unpacking.

  2. The dogs will be great company for each other.

    You've settled in well by the look of it, Barbara.

  3. That was a quick move - sounds like you are getting settled. What lovely blue eyes you have.

  4. I look forward to the colors results. It hadn't even occurred to me that I might need a redo of my best colors.

  5. I hope you'll be happy in your new home, Barbara. Renting has its advantage, that's for certain, and sharing the rent should be nice on your budget. I'm very impressed with your "naked face" photo. You have virtually no wrinkles around your eyes, no bags, nor puffiness. How nice! Looking forward to seeing your colors. Hugs.

  6. I bet the dogs are happy to have each other's company. They are probably going to encourage each other to bark! lol And I can see that Buddy is loving the balcony!

    You have lovely features. I'm interested in what you learn from this color expert. My hair is graying, but it's doing it by stealth. No large areas. They are all hiding in plain sight! It's a weird time. I don't do whole coloring, just spray-in highlights...old school. I'm too frugal.

  7. Glad you're getting settled. I love the idea of "best colors." Wonderful if I'm just too old?

    1. That is why I was thinking of it again. I have just gotten so faded looking with white all around my face and white in my eyebrows. I decided I needed something easy.

  8. It is hard to find a place for everything isn't it? I am glad that you have lots of places to walk now with the dogs and that they are no longer getting tangled up. :)

    1. You certainly know what it feels like. I got rid of so much and there was still more I couldn't keep. I realize how helpful it was having that garage.

  9. It looks like you are really making progress with the unpacking. I spent hours in the shop, still unpacking and sorting bins, on Saturday. (We've been here a year--it's past time to finish that job) If I never see another blue bin again, it won't be too soon!!! I do not have room for all my things in my house, so am still needing to get rid of more, which we did. Rob took a load to Goodwill yesterday from the weekend's cleaning and that felt great! I hope you are starting to feel settled in.

  10. So glad you stopped by. I thought you had quit blogging. Got this blog on my reading list now. I've noticed the older I get the brighter my clothes get. Must be compensating.
