Home Sweet Home

(No alliteration today.  Sorry.  😦  )

Here is the post on my new place!!

I’ve been wanting to move for a WHILE , but didn’t know where to go.  Since I go to Sweet Friend’s all the time, to use his computer, I suddenly thought, “Hey!  Why don’t I look around in his park?”  DUH!!  Some days I wonder how I don’t lose my head!  Thank God it’s attached!

Sadly, the only place in there for sale was NOT suitable– by a long shot!

But!!  Brother and I went looking in the sister property.  And we found an excellent trailer mobile home for only $1,000, by owner.   It looked good!  Partly furnished, with sturdy floors, very important to people in my weight class!  And the bathroom was big!  Huge even, for a trailer mobile home.  That’s really what sold me on it.  I have claustrophobia.  So a bathroom where you can sit on the toilet, soak your feet in the tub, and wash your hands at the sink, all at the same time is NOT for me!

Brother talked to the owner, man to man.  When we left, Brother said, “Wait 3 weeks, then he’ll give it to you for $500.  He’s just tired of paying double lot rents.”  Lo, and behold!  I did just what Brother said, and he was right!

I am now the proud owner of my very first home, all by myself!!

My Very First Place, All on my Own!

My Very First Place, All on my Own!

(But, the green’s gotta go!!  ASAP!  It’s so annoying.)

I’ve never lived by myself before, other than a few weeks here and there, never for very long.  It’s a brand new chapter in my life, and I’m excited for it!

Later, I’ll give you a tour of the inside.  (Becoming more and more purple by the day!)

Here’s my garden:

Double Hibiscus

I’ve never been a gardener:  but being a homeowner must be inspiring me.  I’ve deadheaded the hibiscus 3x already!

Sleeping peacefully, and QUIETLY, in my own home, that I OWN is wonderful.  Thank God for my Home Sweet Home.

  3. It looks good! I’m looking forward to the tour of the inside. I’m going to spend a few weeks later in the summer in my parents’ mobile home in Galicia for the first time, so I hope I’ll be able to share a few pictures on return. Enjoy!

  4. So happy for you , it looks like a really nice place and nothing beats owning your own home. If you want to put a picture up then you can do it wherever you want with no worries about what you will do when you move to repair the hole. Enjoy!!
