Fall picture of Gray Chapel


Someone may remember from a

Spring photograph posted,

about the view from “my”

Front porch of the apt

building. Recently,

a post had the

Hebrew alphabet,

blocks of symbols,

on either side of

the entrance to

this neighboring

“Castle” as my

grandies call it!

Wondrous and amazing,

no matter what season!

Happy autumn days,

to you my friends!

    • Merril, it is so special of you to write in such superlatives. I was happy to move “here” into this apt building. It made up in some large part for leaving our home, when it sold.
      This “next door neighbor,” we can cross one of three bridges to play on their grass and look for things and each other with flashlights at night. πŸ™‚ Oh, this is where the Labyrinth is, too.
      This was a place I could feel like a new beginning, over ten years on my own.

    • It is like a fairy tale setting! I could not believe my luck, Mike. πŸ™‚ Carrie and Skyler were living here 10 years ago. She was the assistant apt building manager. I asked her to save an apt in the same hallway as hers, by the laundry room. Such a “deal” with (at the time) $50. deposit, pay $400 first month’s rent and second month was free! The landlord’s contract stated these terms as college kids were leaving that Summer. Multi-generational in population on three floors. Also, five long term young adults with special needs reside here.
      We have sledded there, had picnics, followed the labyrinth, “hunted” squirrels, chasing them and fed ducks in the stream that we may cross over to this castle on any of 3 bridges!

    • Marissa, very lucky! Carrie, my oldest daughter, told me every Spring they had a great deal for moving in and signing a 12 month lease. (First month’s rent was $400, deposit was only $50, and the second month was free. πŸ™‚ ) This was due to college students who go “month to month” rent.
      Now, you may picture us rubbing across three bridges to the next door “neighbor’s” yard. I like to sit on a bench and read a book under the shade of such great trees, the labyrinth is there on Gray Chapel side yard. . . Thanks for coming to visit!

    • It is an amazing view and such good luck, Sarah. πŸ™‚ There are somewhere in blog posts, Spring and Winter photographs, only see winter on the links under the Like gravatars.
      The tall white pillars created a nice frame for this. There is a rod iron bench where you can sit and look at Gray Chapel, or you can cross a stream over one of three bridges, to sit under trees, meditate on a labyrinth or use flashlights to explore there with my grandies! πŸ˜‰

    • Juan, I actually have a window on the ground floor looking at mainly those trees. The large veranda porch on our apt building, has colonial style pillars, which I used to “frame” my shot. The upper floors can see Gray Chapel but it is easy to go over there, out our back door, across the lot and go over one of 3 bridges. The grandies feed ducks in the stream and like flashlight walks over on the university grounds. πŸ™‚ This sort of “made up” for the loss of my dream home, after three years of my ex husband not having a job and my working as a teacher, as a server at Cracker Barrel and on my Master’s degree. It hurt like heck for awhile but was a relief to just simplify.
      I just joke to my kids, now they can just move me to the nursing home when I get old and senile. Lol πŸ˜€

    • Aww, Beth! It has been home for me, since May, 2006. I do love living downtown, while still having two walking paths to nearby parks and the Gray Chapel, as well as university property.
      Your home town of Ann Arbor, has such fantastic opportunities, beauty and natural wonders. πŸ™‚

    • Natalie, thanks, dear and blessings sent to you! You know I will play catch up soon. . . Tomorrow, work long day, go to my youngest daughter’s apt, sleepover, Friday morning cataract surgery, check up on Saturday morn, and heading to my Mom’s senior living apartment complex.
      Cleveland rocks! Hoping to see the world series on my vacation while my Mom and I will celebrate her #88 on 11/1/2016!
      Love You lots! xo ❀ πŸ™‚
