Hey! Who Stole The Driveway?

The original post in this blog, "A House Blessing Party," should be read first.

Below, a picture of the front of our house, taken eons ago by the previous owner. Why I haven't taken my own pictures of our house, I have no idea. Goes on my "to do" list.

But this is what you will see from West Main Street -- the front of the house, 200-feet of yard, and ... no driveway. If you pass the house and it is on your right, go to the next side street (Lindberg Lane) and turn right and just keep making right turns till you come to a cul-de-sac. We are at the end of that little circle, driveway slopes down toward the back of the house. (All the other driveways nearby slope up.)

(This is the back of the house, on the left. On the right is the driveway, which is above the house. My minivan is in the driveway, at the end nearest the house. The other end is at the circle.)

If the house is on your left as you pass it on West Main Street . . . you have gone too far. Turn around, and follow the directions above.

Just so you know -- Lindberg Lane is a STEEP turn off West Main. If you are squeamish about pointing your car's hood heavenward, then go one more street to Swede Mine Road, turn right, and again make your first 2 right turns till you come to Lindberg Lane (the other end of it) and then take a left off Lindberg onto Glenview Place, which is our cul-de-sac.

You can park in the driveway, in the circle, on Glenview, or -- if by chance there are too many cars on the street -- up the hill in the high school parking lot.

See you on the 14th of March!


  1. Hi Cass,

    My jaw just dropped and hit my keyboard. You are living in my mind's dream home, down to the yellow paint! Ohhhh your house is soooo perfect!!!!


  2. Haha oh Dena, if you saw the house up close, you'd see it's a long way from perfect, but we're working on it. That's how we ended up buying it - I saw the picture in an online realty ad, and fell in love. It is the house I have wanted since I was a little girl! (Although when we repaint, I am thinking of going for white, with black shutters. What do you think?)
    All the best... Cass

  3. Oh my gosh I think that is my dream house color and all. I am in love!!Hugs, Bobbi Jo

  4. Love your home! And I love the way you write...great sense of humor and fun to read!

  5. I like the idea of a "house blessing". We all should do that the moment we touch the threshold of a new (to us) home. Fun reading your blog and thanks for stopping by mine. PAM

  6. Thanks for stopping by and your sweet comment about my collie dog collection. On my way to church this morning,but will stop in later to see all the goings on at your place. Looks fantastic!
