It's Friday!

Hi everyone!  I have chosen a soothing video for this post that I hope you will all enjoy!  It is gentle harp music with images of flowing water.  I really find it very relaxing and beautiful and hope you all will as well!  It is a short 3 minute video.

The photo I am sharing today is one that I took on my walk last Friday, April 19th.  It was a house that was almost finished being built.  You just need to click on the image to see a larger view.

  1. What a big house! I'd love to take a tour inside.

    I like that quote--a lot of wisdom there!

  2. Linda, thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such a nice comment! I love the harp music and the house has so much detail. I can only imagine what it must look like on the inside-must be beautiful!

  3. A beautiful house, Linda. Reminds me of one I posted on Ocala a couple of weeks ago. Wonder what something like that would cost in Montreal?

  4. i especially love the quotation you've given us today. i had never heard it before, but it's so true and thought-provoking :D

  5. I listen to your music, Linda, en I walk by the expensive house....

  6. that's one nice house

  7. Hi Linda, beautiful music. The mansion look big and nice.
    Thanks for sharing the wonderful video.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  8. Do you know what, Linda? I'm not sure I like the idea of such houses. I know of many houses like this one, or bigger than this one, in places like Lorraine, Fontainebleau in Blainville, or Blainville-sur-le-lac where each house (mansion?) is a monstrosity costing between two and seven or eight million dollars. Extravagant. And in many cases, for two persons and a dog. I don't get it…

    Another point with this house and its rather strange style: the very idea of having a huge garage in FRONT of the house, instead of on the side. I may be wrong, but it doesn't smell of old money!

    Just my two cents worth. And that's not much with the cent fast disappearing from our pockets.

    But I like the photo Linda. As usual you're doing great work.

  9. That really is some house! Our neighborhood doesn't have anything like that!

  10. I'd love to live in that house. Perhaps I should dream more and see how this kind of house would come to me =)

    I´m so happy that you visited in my paintingblog. It´s so amazing how we can surf around the world and see what happens there. My mothers stepbrother lives in Montreal and I´ve thought several times that I should to visit in your beautiful country. Hope it happens some day =)

    Have a lovely weekend =)

  11. En España no es fácil encontrar una construcción de ese tipo en estos tiempos. Buena foto.

    Someone just back from a holiday in France?

  13. Ah soothing works for me. Espcially being so far behind on my spring yard cleanup work.....

  14. I like the quotation you chose. I makes a good point.

  15. Good music and a lovely quote :))
    Solid construction, has a beautiful architecture.
    A kiss.

  16. Wow what a house , and you could do a lot with that garden area to. Love the Video
