ten things tuesday

Linking up with Ten On Tuesday this week.

This week's topic is 10 Things You Love About your Home.

1) I love how safe I feel in this neighborhood.

2) The front porch is awesome.

3) With all the windows, I get light all day long.

4) There are no neighbors above me.

5) All my neighbors are quiet. I've had some who were partiers and rowdy, so I truly appreciate having quiet neighbors.

6) It's a convenient location to town. I'm about a mile away from my parents and from the best supermarket and business district.

7) I love living by myself.

8) The house is well-maintained. My landlord does a great job of keeping the outside looking nice.

9) I love having neighbors that I could borrow a cup of sugar from. Not that I borrow sugar, but, if the need arose, I know I could ask.

10) I love that after living here for twenty years I still love living here.


  1. Your home sounds wonderful! I love that you could borrow sugar from your neighbors...LOL! Do people really do that??

  2. I miss having neighbors I could borrow sugar/eggs from. In our old neighborhood we had nurse across the street who provided free medical "care" when one of the boys would run into a mailbox while biking.

  3. It's important to have good neighbors. They can really make or break your home happiness.

  4. Good neighbors are the best!!

  5. Safe is good. Safe is important. I love Chicago, but being downtown today -- with the Cubs, White Sox, Grateful Dead and the Navy Pier fireworks all attracting crowds -- I can't help thinking about the warnings about terrorism. Of course, I refuse to let them change my plans. But I'd be lying if I didn't admit the fear is lingering there.
