As you can see, the table has been cleared, the dishes have been washed, and the house is once again in order. One thing about Scott's parents. They are very, very neat. They also LOVE their stairs. At the top of the photo, you can see what I consider the en suite. There is an office, a bedroom, private bath, walk-in closet larger than my craft room, and a deck off the bedroom. Unfortunately, before I could photograph it, my camera batteries died.
But since I was talking about stairs, I thought I would start on the stairs. This was on the landing heading to the en suite.
This one was on the landing heading to the basement.
Seems like all I photographed were stairs.
led to a hallway that led to this first floor bath. They have five baths, so you never have to look far for an empty one.
This was Trish's room growing up, so it makes sense she and Sean stay here when they visit.
Across the hall was Scott's room, but Andrew slept there and Scott took the comfy couch in the living room.
Trish and Sean on their wedding day and Scott's senior photo. Times have really changed (and so have hair styles).
Now we're in the lowest level of the house. It's also the level where the garage and Rusty's (Scott's dad) workshop is.
I love the vignettes his mother creates.
I normally love it down here, although I failed to show the fireplace that keeps the basement warm and toasty.
There's even a fully functioning kitchen, although
Rusty seems to have claimed it for himself!
Trish's two children slept on these couches,
and this is where I slept. The bath was right off this bedroom, but this was when my batteries died.
Once my batteries were recharged (yes, I took my charger), I took a few photos on the way home.
I was looking directly into the setting sun here.
Technically these are silos, but I'm not sure what they contain, since this looks like an oil refinery to me.
I cheated and took this photo the next morning. You can see
the leaves are finally starting to fall.
Thanks for joining me on this artful trip. Hope you had as much fun climbing those stairs as I did!
