I saw this over at Thom’s. It looked like fun, so I’m joining in. I’m a day late, but I’m giving it a go anyway. It demonstrates one of my favorite things about the internet … or history … or art … or music. It’s about learning more about people and their cultures. I sincerely believe that we’d all get along much better if we got to know one another. (Not everyone’s interested in knowing other people, but that’s another story.)
This meme is hosted by Carleen over at Egypt Everlasting:
This blog is about everything Egyptian and although Egypt’s history is long and her culture fascinating, she is but one nation in this world of ours that grows smaller with each day. Every Saturday, we’ll post a theme. Participants will post a picture, story, song, poem, recipe, craft project, piece of art – anything, really – that tells us something about your city/town, state/province, or country for that week's topic. Our hope is that through this weekly meme, we’ll learn more about our countries and cultures.
This week's theme is HOME SWEET HOME, so share something about the place you live.
Okay, on with the show …
For the next two weeks, my home sweet home is in West Texas. This is what my living room looked like a few days ago. Alas, it’s now a diminishing memory as more things make their way into boxes.
This is my “Western Wall.” Included are the obligatory cow skull, pictures of horses and cactus. To be honest, not everyone around here has cow skulls hanging from their walls, but when I helped someone move, they offered it to me. As a foreigner (Yup, I’m a Yankee. LOL), it was too cliché to pass up. I should add that I absolutely adore him. At Christmas, I dress him up in a Santa Cap.
Here’s the rest of the place. I don’t know that it has any particularly West Texas vibe about it, but it probably tells a lot about me … though I’m not quite sure what. However, I should tell you that it is rarely this neat. I must have been expecting people over. ;)
Might as well finish off the series with the view out to my patio. I’ve loved living here. I’ve been in this apartment for almost 10 years. I will miss it, but I’m also excited about my DC adventure. :)
