Okay, okay….When three people ask about my blog within four days, I guess it means its time to get back on the horse!
Summer has been very busy around here. I am still getting used to this whole working full-time thing. It is still an adjustment! Do you know, it will be a year at the end of this month that I’ve been working!!! The time sure goes fast when your weekdays are busy!
So, the biggest news around here is that we have found a house. We had been looking since April and not finding much on the market that met our criteria. The houses we did look at needed lots of work ($$) to be nice. They were all move in ready, but needed big fixes done asap (like roof, repairing pipes that had frozen, new septic systems, etc). In the first week or so of July, our realtor found a house that she thought we would like….And we love it!!!
The house has tenants in it right now (the daughter of the owner) so we won’t be able to move in until later this fall…But we have a contract on it, we’ve had it inspected, we’ve got a commitment from our mortgage company for it…..Things are moving along!
The house is located off a dirt road off a side road about 5 miles from where we live now. It is on 3.6 acres of land, woods (pine trees), small yard, and meadow. The house actually comes with 5 acres, there is a long and narrow jog across the street where the property continues down to a stream.
The house is set back and private and it is so quiet! But, it is about two minutes from a general store and really no further than we already travel than where we are now.
And yes, I do have pictures.
The woods and meadow (the meadow is down hill from the house).
And though it was hazy the day we were taking pictures, there are some very nice views of the foothills at the bottom of the mountain.
So, now we are just biding our time….We drive by the house about once a week to “visit” it…..We can’t wait to move in. Keep your fingers crossed that it all works out for us!!
Okay, so about blogging. A wise woman pointed out to me this week that I don’t have to blog every day, I could blog a few times a week. I think I will try this. And I’ve got a bit of catching up to do, so I won’t be at a loss for things to chat about!!!!
