A Bit About Me (Me) ~ I Want to Live in a Zoo

by Gwen



It is time once again, to step out from behind the book and get to know one another better.

We all have a story and a life beyond the book and thanks to Danielle from There’s A Book, we get share. She asks the questions and we get to answer.




This Week’s Question: Describe your dream home and where it would be located?

My dream home would be large enough so that we all have our own spaces. I thought that we had managed that this last move, but then the boomerang child came back and brought a friend too. (If you are lucky enough not to know what a boomerang child is, it is a young adult that moves in and out multiple times while she figures out what she wants to be when she grows up) This meant that I lost my office/craft room.

On the other hand, I don’t want a house that is so large that it is a royal pain to clean. I am not so good with that and get all persnickety when I have to clean up after two young people that seem to think that I am their maid.

At least 2 bathrooms, don’t make me talk about that any further.

You will notice that I don’t care about the era, style or layout. All of that stuff can be change easily if you are handy. I just happen to be handy:)

 Location, Location, Location….

My house has to be on the Central Coast of California near, but not to near the beach. I have lived in LA, San Francisco, and in the mountains of Washington State and this is where I want to be. The weather is heavenly, 75 degrees year ‘round, there is always stuff going on and things to do and I am just as close to LA and I am SF. Perfect.

I would also need at least 1 to 5 acres for my secret animal experiments. (insert scary BRa ha ha laugh here) You see, I have a fascination with pigmy goats and other wee creatures and I want them all!


This is the best picture of my dear Sasha that I could find easily. She was housetrained, like a dog, and was a dear companion. I want a house where I can have a whole slew of them!

So what is on your wish list for a dream house?
