A Fun Day


My good friend, Elaine, invited me to drive with her to Houtzdale to visit her old friend and my new friend, Kathy. Kathy is a lovely woman that I met at Elaine's a few months ago. Kathy's husband passed away two years ago. They had lived in New Jersey and, upon retirement, returned to the home that had been his family's in Houtzdale. The home is a lovely old home that Kathy and her husband renovated. As of the census of 2000, there were 941 people, 380 households, and 275 families residing in the borough.

This is the table in the great room. We had a lovely lunch at this table.
This is Kathy's hutch. It is filled with beautiful dishes. The ducks on the top of the hutch were hand carved by Kathy's husband.

This is the lovely wood burner. Kathy informed us that her son-in-law is the expert at building fires in the wood burner.

This is one of the chairs that is in the sitting area of the great room.



This is another chair that is in the great room. It is a family heirloom.

This is a small lovely old sofa. I would call a settee. It is very cozy.
It was amazing. As I sat and looked out this window, it was as if a blizzard appeared out of no where. Kathy told me that she often sees deer when looking out of this window.
This is my old friend Elaine and my new friend Kathy. They are both wonderful ladies.
We had a wonderful day today. It was so good to get together with Elaine and Kathy. They are lovely ladies.
