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.

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.

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.
