    I love to have such view at home. But you know the development will over take such beautiful place. I do not like that. :(

  • Anonymous 30.1.09

    last time near my home there is a big green field but not any more as development of apartments take over! It is so sad!

    Wishing you a great end to your week!

  • Anonymous 31.1.09

    yeah development is not stopping. We need the nature and tress! We need fresh air too.

    Good to see you back! :)

  • Anonymous 31.1.09

    be honest with you the development will only caused more bad traffic! It is so jam up here and later maybe worst...

  • Anonymous 31.1.09

    I am not saying that development is no good but I think is better to make it just average and not OVER.

  • Speedcat Hollydale 31.1.09

    I think the new place looks great!! ... so, how many boxes did it take to move??

    I guess 100

    The sky has not been blue here for days - winter blah blah blah. Thanks for the visual warm up :-)

  • Lynda Lehmann 31.1.09

    Looks as if everything has fallen into place for you, Kim. Not that it was by accident--moving is tons of work.

    I wish you much happiness there. A view of the sea should help keep your creative juices flowing! :)

  • Jackie 31.1.09

    Oh my Kim it is just incredible! Wow what a view! Well if that doesn't inspire you and all of us nothing will.

    your living room is grand as well. Oh you lucky girl. I am so very very happy for you.

    I bet you are glad to be settled. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful new home with us!

    Hugs and buckets of love,

  • Amy Lilley Designs 31.1.09

    Kim the view is GORGEOUS...I'm hooked on living near the's a looks absolutely lovely and I wish you and the family all the best in your new home...again, your presence has been missed....big hugs....:))))

  • bokjae 31.1.09

    Wow! new house in the new year! thats very exciting! I love sea-views! Hope you settle down soon. Moving house and setting-up all over again is really stressful!! I know for I moved 20 over times in my life!!! Take care!

  • durano lawayan a.k.a. brad spit 31.1.09

    Hello Kim,

    You have a wonderful place and it has been arranged splendidly. I'm happy to see that your new home is in-step with your artistic inclinations and refreshing lifestyle. Congratulations.

    I am still living amidst boxes and crates since I haven't found a place yet.

    By the way, I received a notice from the Post Office of a package which I'm sure id the portrait of Daphne. I haven't gone there yet as I need to prepare acceptable IDs with just my nickname on it. Or I will bring some magazines where my full name and nickname appear on the same caption. It's nothing difficult, I just have to look at the boxes packed along the hallway of my home. :-)

    I'm excited about getting it and taking it to Daphne this week. Thanks again and for all the trouble of shipping it. :-) --Durano, done!

  • Anonymous 31.1.09

    I'm glad you have gotten your head above water. That is lovely, I am so envious it looks too lovely to bear.

  • Sage Ravenwood 2.2.09

    Welcome back dear one. The new place looks awesome. Love your views! (Hugs)Indigo

  • Anonymous 2.2.09

    What a lovely view you have, makes me very envious. Before I retired I was living in Florida on the coast north of Tampa. After retirement we moved by home to Mississippi (the kids were all here, you know the grandparent thing). I do miss the ocean and the fishing. Exactly where are you? We are in a small town about 40,000 pop., Brookhaven. Its about 60 due east of Natchez. The word Natchez comes from an old indian tribe who once lived their. They were all killed out after they massacred the french settlers living at Fort Rosilie--a very early settlement there.

    I'll a retired history teacher and my wife and I along with our lovely dog Professor (an old Shih-tsu) now spend our days living quitely in this old sleepy town.

    Whats with all the blue roofs---they go good with the blue sea in the background. Sure you will enjoy your new home.

    My blog, if you can call it that was originally set up as a commerical site, but then I added a blog to it---I love politics and found it to be a good outlet for my opinions and values. I've begun another one--its still under construction, I do however have some photos of myself, wife and oh yes, Professor on it. Most were taken at our cabin in the country. We have 10 acres in rural Amite county--part of my grandparents old homesite. My new blog is at "" if you would like to visit---as I said before, not much there yet--leave me a comment if you visit. Oh yes, before I forget the Saint Benard in the picture as passed on--sad. Penny Patch in the name of the cabin site.

  • Anonymous 2.2.09

    Beautiful view there Kim.... all I see is a couple of rows of houses from my window, and no terrace :( so yeah, Im so envious just like the rest of them here... :)

    just kidding btw, hope you had a restful weekend after the move and the tooth removal..

  • Kim 3.2.09

    thanks for your kind wishes Indigo
    have a wonderful day :))

    hi Ron
    thanks for your invite to visit your sites...
    I will visit and thanks for letting me know about your poetry too..
    10 that must be absolute paradise
    sorry to hear about your Saint Bernard :(
    thanks for the history on your town
    I'll have to check out where you are on the map
    I'm on the Central Coast of NSW Australia and the blue roofs all belong to the same block of apartments ;)
    the architect obviously likes blue :)

    hi Pearl
    how are you? :)...
    the mouth is much better...

  • Anonymous 4.2.09

  • PurrPrints 4.2.09

    I'm jealous of that awesome looking hammock in the corner--i love hammocks!

  • Anonymous 9.3.09

    It looks amazing! If I saw that every time I looked out the window I'd wake up at 5am every day!
