We did it.
We bought 12.5 acres of land.
Four acres (4) of which is beautiful meadow.
Eight and a half (8.5) of which is wooded, with a stream.
There are tenants:
already making their home on "our" land.
I can hardly think straight for the plans that are running through my head.
Lions and Tigers and Bears [oh my!]
A pony for my littles?
A "green house"... not a place to grow stuff, a geothermal, solar and wind powered house.
I can hardly believe it. We did it. We are actively planning for our future. A future of fresh air, clear and clean water, home grown vegetables, free range animals and land- to stretch. and hike, and explore and love.
Tonight: Celebration, Wine, Laughter, Possibilities, Dreams.
Tomorrow: Holy Shit What Did We Do? And Etouffee (tune in - when I am nervous I cook even better - and this etoufee was incredible!)
Our land: (ps.. thanks for caring)
This is the forest we will view out the back windows of our eventual home.
This is the stand of trees that will shield our home from the road
This is the meadow with the surrounding woods, an aerial viewA Cook's Notes: The little town is beautiful. A restaurant, a beautiful inn, a general store and a post office. Surrounding farms are all pasteur raised, organic, grassfed raised livestock and poultry. Do I belong here or what? Sigh.
