Walking The Land - Sort Of

We went up to our new land on Saturday. We had not seen it since we bought it.

Thankfully we ran into our realtor on the way and she gave us snow shoes. As gifts!

We are such rubes. We thought we'd just drive up and walk around a bit.

In 30 inches of snow.


I love my new snowshoes, I have been wearing them everywhere. They are wrecking havoc on my hardwood floors ;-)

We have a stream. Holly approves.

TBHITW lay claim to his land - it was a proud moment

Looking up the meadow to where we will build our home. The meadow is surrounded by over 8 acres of woods. Our woods. We can't believe it.

I am standing on my (eventual) front porch looking down the meadow to the street (it is fun to imagine) - can you see our car way down there, to the right?

One day this view will be filled with flower and vegetable gardens. One day.

It was a good day.


  1. It looks beautiful - especially in all the snow. I'd love to go snowshoeing sometime.

  2. Wow that is beautiful. I am envious. But not of all the snow.
    We have some snow shoes somewhere..good on your realator for giving you some.

  3. Wonderful! It looks like you found your little slice of Heaven!

  4. How beautiful. An oasis in the middle of everything! I love these updates; keep them coming:)

  5. Rachel - Snowshoeing was hard work but a lot of fun. I looked up the calorie burn and I think it should be an olympic sport.

    Vodka - Despite all the snow it was incredibly warm. I got sunburned!

    Teri - Yes, a little slice of heaven. That's what it feels like.

    Whitney - I'll keep updating, as long as you are not bored.

  6. There is something special about owning land - calling it yours. Holly approved, loved that ;) Thanks for stopping in and chatting about your love of aprons {virtual hug}

  7. So much fun to imagine what will be....

  8. After this week, we should be able to get to our lodge, if we choose- if it keeps melting!

  9. Correen - It's important to keep the dog happy!

    Kathy - yes, I am having a good time of it.

    Buffalo - I know this weather is a tease of spring. We could still get hit with snow....

  10. I can see the garden... Vividly!
    Congratulations on fulfilling your dream!
