We’re in the house! We don’t have an internet service yet, but we’re getting pretty settled. Posts will continue to be sparse for another week or two. In the meantime, allow me to take you on a quick tour of the house we’re renting. (For more images, click here to view my Picasa album.)
Here is the front of the house. The house-owner’s ex-wife is a talented gardener. The whole front of the house has beautiful flower beds similar to this.
The house has a very settled and country feeling. I love it! Everything is tastefully and well-done.
The apple trees out front will make pies, crisps, and jellies for the fall and winter.
And we get fresh eggs every day.
In addition to apples, we have raspberries and blueberries.
Three-hundred paces down the road from our house, or about four and a half minutes at a leisurely walk, is the public boat landing for the pond. Boats are in and out of here all day long enjoying the summer and the beautiful weather.
I cannot believe this is just down the road from my home.
After the this winter’s hardships, I feel like life is starting to perk up! I fell into my dream home without the repair bills! (I’m renting it from one of my colleagues.) We’ve been in the house for almost a week now and very soon life will settle down and I’ll be able to revive my worn and weary spirit.
Here’s to the new home and new year!
