A View from my Window

Liz posted a challenge to post A View From Our Window and here's mine...



At first glance, I've got a great view! The pool, the kids, the beautiful new cover for my patio....of course, our neighbor's can be a little noisy. O.k., they couldn't be quieter unless they were dead. Oh, wait, they ARE dead! Yes, we live behind a cemetery. The view is peaceful and we don't have to worry about a strip mall being put in behind us.LOL
Blessings,
Lisa

I LOVE the pool and yard stuff in your backyard! Looks like a GREAT place to hang out!

What a nice peaceful backyard, Lisa! I looks like a wonderful place to sit and relax and watch the kids.

LOL You all are too kind. Most people think it's a bit creepy living in front of a cemetery but we've enjoyed it. It's very quiet and peaceful and our neighbors never complain about our noise.LOL

Our neighbors are an Evening News Special Report just waiting to happen. Be thankful for what you've got. At least none of them is convinced that their rock band is the Next Big Thing. I've always thought that cemeteries were very interesting, but with my need for details, I always wish they each came with handouts to answer all my questions.

I think you have a great view at second glance too! No barking dogs, no big parties, and lots of nice trees to look at!

Is it an older cemetery that is interesting to walk around? We lived near one in Littleton. We checked out the older section from the 1800s and it was memorable.

We definitely prefer these neighbors over our Miami ones.lol These don't break out a party for EVERY occasion complete with fire works and loud music til 2am.

This is an old cemetery that is still in use. We've been having funerals every week lately. Lots of military. It's sooo sad.

LOL, I'm glad the neighbors aren't noisy if they are dead! I don't thinkliving near a cemetery would bug me,would take it for the quiet. I like your view, It looks like our side yard view although the pool has a slow leak (soft pool) and some (but not all) of the little kids toys have been replaced with big kid toys. It's still all colorful!!
