When you walk in your front door, which room do you enter?
a tiny little foyer that leads into the living room.

Do you have a dishwasher?
Yes. His name is Cody.

Is your living room carpeted or does it have hardwood floors?
Hardwood. There was carpet - fugly shaggy brown carpet - on all surfaces, it seemed, when we bought the house.

Do you keep your kitchen knives on the counter or in a drawer?
Knife block on the counter.

House, apartment, duplex or trailer?
Very small house.

How many bedrooms is it?
Two real bedrooms, plus a finished basement w/bathroom that we call "the garden apartment".

Gas stove or electric?
Gas.

Do you have a yard?
Yes. It's a little house on a big lot.

What size TV is in the living room?
Jim got a new TV for the holidays - he spent his royalty money on it. It's big and flat and hides in an armoire. We don't have cable so it's really just to watch DVDs and the occasional football or basketball game.

Are your plates in the same cupboard as your cups?
Yep.

Is there a coffee maker sitting on your kitchen counter?
No. The French press is in a cupboard.

What room is your computer in?
It's a laptop, so it travels, but it lives mostly in the living room.

Are there pictures hanging in your living room?
We're actually hanging some of Cody's prints this weekend. His work is fantastic.

Are there any themes found in your home?
Um, we like orange.

What kind of laundry detergent do you use?
I used to make laundry soap. now I buy the biodegradable stuff at the co-op.

Do you use dryer sheets?
Nope. I do scent a piece of fabric with essential oil sometimes.

Curtains in your home?
No, just bamboo blinds. I'm not in love with our window treatments, but honestly, in the grand scheme, they're last on my list.

What color is your fridge?
White.

Is your house clean?
More or less. it's a lot easier to keep a small house clean.

What room is the most neglected?
Cody's room. My corner of the garden apartment (to be remedied this weekend).

Are the dishes in your sink/dishwasher clean or dirty?
Probably dirty - Cody hasn't gotten to them yet.

How long have you lived in your home?
3 years next month!

Where did you live before?
A different house less than a mile away.

Do you have one of those fluffy toilet lid covers on your toilet?
No!

Do you have a scale anywhere in your house?
I have a produce/kitchen scale. I have never owned a bathroom scale in my life.

How many mirrors are in your house?
Living room has one, Cody has one, upstairs bathroom has two, Lilly has one, and there's one in the downstairs bathroom.

Look up. What do you see?
A tin ceiling - I'm at the cafe.

Do you have a garage?
Yes.
