A garden full of housewarmers (the children all stayed inside, the adults all hung around outside, which I think is very funny :)) :

Looks glorious!

Do you happen to know the details of that magnificent chair? I'm going to buy a new office chair in the near future. :)

The magnificent chair, or rather, the magnificent keyboard, is no longer available through the original makers, who are Kinesis. I don't know if you can find it on eBay or something or not, as I've never looked. I live in terror of mine breaking...

It looks amazing! It really is a manor haus!

Splendid!

Although, I'm translating "garden" as "yard," not "planted area where one grows vegetables or flowers." Is that correct?

Yeah, they call yards gardens over here. :)

Yards don't have grass!! Yards are concrete or mud...

Beautiful. I hope you can stay in that house forever!
That sun room is wonderful. What a memory for your son.

My goal is to make a Big Jump to e-books. I'm much more inclined to them now. I am so. tired. of moving. books. So future TBR shelves won't *look* as impressive...

Still looks great. Still jealous!
