Where I Live


Have you ever Googled your own address to find pictures of where you live on Google maps? 

Recently, I  happened to look out my dining room window just as a Google maps car like the one pictured above drove by.  At some point in the future, I will be able to look at a street view of my house on Google maps.  (I know I can go outside any time I want and look at my own house, but seeing it on Google maps will be pretty cool.)

My house is on a corner, so I have two streets-my front door is on 1st Avenue.


And the side of my house is on Maple.


Because it’s been so hot lately, here is a nice chilly picture of my house from the corner.

I always find comfort in the familiarity of the streets I live on.  I like to walk downtown, or stroll through different neighborhoods, but my step always seems lighter when I’m back in my own “neck of the woods.”  Even though I sometimes wish for a more picturesque view-more trees and flowers and less cars and that sort of thing, still-it’s where I live.

Is is Monday already?  Where did the weekend go?  Well, dear readers-have a great week!


  1. Listening to this song put a smile on my face. The old stuff is such a feel-good experience.

    And what a pretty green-lined street.

  2. I love your house. It's got such charm!

  3. Tina-thanks! And I agree, isn't it a great song!!

    Lisa-thanks! My house needs a lot of work, but it's a labor of love:)

  4. Don't you just love technology? :)

    Have a glorious week, my dear!

  5. I do Melissa! And thank you my dear, and same to you:)

  6. So cool that you saw Google on your street!! I really like one end of my street but the other end can be a bit shady - and I don't mean the tree kind.
