From Where I Stand

I was doing a little blog cruising last night and I stumbled upon a blog that was doing a meme ( okay...dummy here still hasn't figured out how to do that ), the meme was called "the view from my kitchen window". What a great topic, especially if you've been reading or commenting back and forth with said bloggers. So, I'm posting the view from my kitchen window even though I'm meme challenged in a really huuuge way, I think I need Jerrie for another tutorial. J? ;D
When I moved to the farm this view was a pile of dirt with a few rhodies, that first summer I lived with it but by the next spring I drove the tractor out there and leveled the space with the scraping blade, I planted the hedge and put in a little lawn. Several years later I got tired of the sickly lawn and laid these pavers.
It 's a great space in the spring, protected from the wind... it's a lovely spot for a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine at the end of the day. I planted it so that the view would be pleasing all year 'round from my kitchen window, since I don't have a dishwasher!
So, what's the view from your window?

*bloggers note: hey kids, news flash...I once again stumbled upon the blog that originated this idea, since I'm still an idiot about links and don't know how to direct you to her site here is the address. It's really fun to check out all the kitchen window views from all over the world.

What a lovely view. Looks perfect for a glass of wine.

I would love to tutor you in all things blog! We should have a date!

I will go take a pic from my kitchen window...not nearly as beautiful as yours (and my patio is off to the side so you can't even see the old buggy Troy thinks he is going to restore).

Apparently your window is spotless. I can't play right now.

You have created a lovely view. I only wish mine was half as pretty. Congratulations! You have a right to be proud of it.

In your post, you write, perhaps "here". Then you go to the thing you want to link and copy the URL. then in the post, you highlight "here" and click on the 'link' icon that looks like a piece of chain in the new post header, then you paste the URL in the second line. That should do it for you!

PS: love the pic in your header - nothing gets me like a snow capped mountain ... and they are pretty rare here in Egypt.
