Let’s put controversy and memories of old Southern times behind us and move on to loveliness, a topic that everyone agrees is a good thing.
There are links to photos of the Hacienda’s living room and kitchen elsewhere here, but those photos were taken years ago, and we have made changes.
These photos were shot this morning, making them very fresh.
The most notable change in the living room is that the furniture was reupholstered recently from the dull beige to a feisty red. That’s the loveseat over there, and you can just see the sofa’s arms at bottom. I shot the photo standing behind the sofa.
The individual chair of the three-piece set has been moved upstairs to open things up downstairs somewhat, making it even more roomy.
And here is the kitchen. The primary change from the old photo is the “chopping block” standing there in the middle. We had that table made by a carpenter after we took him a piece of wood-grain formica for the top.
My lovely wife makes her breads, pies and pastries atop that very table.
It’s great living here. I would envy myself if such a thing were humanly possible.
