|Simply lovely sliding times!|
First of all, I'm sure you'll recognize the staircase. Yep, this is the bannister railing I SO do love to slide down!
Next on our tour is the fancy parlor, where we entertain guests, like *sigh* the the schoolmaster,
|The parlor is full of sunshine|
|The library is not my favorite place. Seems dark to me.|
There's the library, of course, where Justin spends time working on the accounts and I spend time rummaging through the bookcase, trying to find something I haven't read yet. Once, I found a dime novel Mitch had stashed in there years ago and forgotten about! I was so excited!
The next few pictures show the music room, and the piano that Virginia was going to play. I never did hear her play it. I bet she can't play as well as she boasts she can. But Melinda can. We gather in the music room at Christmas and sing Christmas carols around the piano while she plays. She's really good at it. I'm not. I can play "Row, row, row your boat," and that's all.
After that comes the dining room. The table looks big because there are extra leaves in it. The day the photographer came, we were going to have dinner guests later. Then comes Mother's room and Melinda's room (oops, she forgot to hang up her dress!). Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately), you can't see my room. Mother wouldn't let the photographer go near it. It was a little (well, very) messy!
