A Visit at Grimmwood

Marvin and I can hardly believe that we have enjoyed Grimmwood for three years now. Time does seem to fly by.

We woke up Friday morning to SUNSHINE.....

This is the view I see out the front window from my stitching spot.

Marvin goes to the gym in Chatsworth with his Silver Sneaker program. He got this photo on his way home.


Someone asked about Silver Sneakers. It is a portion of our supplemental Medicare insurance that allows  free visits to certain gyms in your area.  Marvin uses one near our home in Decatur and the local Chatsworth gym is also a part of this program.  I will be able to start my gym visits on May 1st.

Speaking of my stitching chair...


We love our recliners....the little table between the chairs holds books, tv remotes and gas log remote.

Marvin's reading material and my reading material...can you guess whose is whose???

He is the brainy part of our dynamic duo.

We drink lots of hot beverages in the winter...

And I love my little kitchen...

Everything is very compact.



Open shelving is nice too!


The gas logs keep it very cozy in the cold winter time.
Grimmwood is small but so easy to clean and keep tidy.

I am working on my Grimmwood Dough Bowl. Hoping to have some pillows to add on my next visit.

Sunset over the pond...

Our view on the drive away....headed back to Decatur. Until next time little house.

Arlene, Grimmwood is a wonderful change of pace to daily life. Your home is just perfect for it. What a view to stitch by and how relaxing it must be to spend time there. I love your green cabinets and the coffee bar is my favorite part, with all your stitched pieces above. It's so neat and cozy!!

I looked into Silver Sneakers but I don't have a gym close that has the program. I guess my gym will be my daily dog walks!

Love the Mountain photo on your way home!

I love this. Sweet cottage, books, stitching, warm fire, and just relaxing. I think this is ideal. My apartment is cozy, with Thomas Kinkade on the walls, stitching near, jigsaw puzzle, Kindle and books...writing my column, letters to friends, etc. However, even though I miss my house, starting over isn't all bad. Just need more furniture. lol
Have a good week.

Oh Arlene, thank you for sharing Grimmwood with us. What a beautiful home away from home you have! Your view from your stitching spot looks fabulous. I spied a number of Longaberger baskets and pottery in your photos. Love the pieces on the wall above your coffee maker; I recognize most of them! What a peaceful place you have!

I remember when you were building Grimmwod. It's hard to believe you've been in it that long. It looks so cozy and the views are fabulous!

Linda said...

I love your Grimmwood!! I remember when you first showed pictures of the area before you started building. Your cottage is just perfect!!

Brenda said...

P S. I have never had a recliner. I have tried them. Legs short and bone diseases have always made them difficult for me. Yours look so inviting.

As my Dad would say, you've got it made in the shade, Arlene! Everything looks great! Your cottage is positively darling. Have a great week!!

I'm sure you never tire of visiting this relaxing looking spot, Arlene. I love the recliners and your book selections! Too funny. I would be totally lost just reading the table of contents in Marvin's selections :)
