When we bought this house it was really important not to get a lot of pasture. This is horse country and people love their pastures out here, but that sort of landscape is so dull. It's only good for horses and cows and we have neither. I like my trees. I like wandering through the woods and finding all manner of insects, wildlife, and wildflowers.
When we were house hunting, one of the houses on our short list had a lot of pasture, but the house was nice and it had a huge fishing pond on twelve acres. There was a lot going for it, but in the end all that pasture made it too sad-looking, and we crossed it off our list.
The house we chose is beyond what we expected. It needs a proper fence and a workshop for Greg, but all the high end amenities, the interiors, and beautiful trees made up for its shortcomings. At 4000 square feet, it's more house than we need, but we knew it was 'home' the minute we walked inside.
I still feel that way.
What do you like about your house? What would you like to change?
Today, I'm going to concentrate on 'everything' blogs, bloggers who like to talk about a wide range of topics--kinda like me. :o)
Stop over at these blogs and add yourself to their follower list. Make sure you say, howdy and introduce yourself.
I like to talk about my thoughts on all sorts of things. Lately, though, I've been doing a theme on inspiration, about the various things that inspire me.
Mostly about dogs, gardening / nature, writing and books.
On my blog, I like to talk about reading, writing, LOST reruns, and favorite brands of chocolate--not necessarily in that order.
It is a blog about…well, me. About how moisturiser doesn’t work on archaeological remains, about thought cheese and brain mice and my hatred of spiders. It’s about my work as a writer, or rather my guilt at finding a billion other things to do than write, and my total confabulation that someone actually wants to publish my books. And one post is a singalong.
There's your line up for today. You are bound to like these ladies. Go over and tell 'em I sent ya.
Just two more days to go before we announce the contest winner!
