Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

Home Sweet Home!

It will look better in the spring! On the positive side, I don't have to cut grass for another 5 months!
The man den out back is 24 X 26 feet and will have heat in it soon, I hope. Life is good in town. Satellite TV and internet, and heat.

I bet that short driveway is nice to shovel! :) Enjoy your "new" home!

Michelle said...

Glad that your move is finally over. That can be quite a transition in life! You have a great looking place!

I'm glad to hear that you've moved and are all settled into your new home! Exciting in many ways, and my prayers that you'll both be happy here. Happy New Year!!

So glad you're settling into the new place. Your weather is unimaginable to me. I've been squawking about walking the dog today because its spitting snow. Ha ha! It looks like a nice house, and you've got a great "dog house" there in the rear.

Hi Ian,
Oh! Wooww! Bravo!
You and Elaine have made it...
Congratulations for both of you!
I am very happy for you too.
Your new house looks so lovely.
I truly enjoy reading your stories, especially when you talk about your daily life, your horses, your gorgeous dogs, Boots and Brooklyn. I really love them!
My hubby says to live in a city is much easier than to live in the country side. My hubby likes public sewer and public water, not a septic tank or well.
He is a Physician Chief Surgeon at the Emergency Room of a Public Hospital somewhere in S.A.
I met him there long ago...
My hubby loves Science & Research.
He is a 73-year-old city guy.
I love country homes with lots of acreage for horses, pets and other animals. Yet, hubby is the boss, so I'll follow whatever he says.
When he RETIRES, we'll BUY a cozy HOME in a lovely city with sewer and water, perhaps, even closer to a Lake with U.S. Mountain Views.
I am really glad that you, Elaine and your dogs are doing well, Ian.
Please, come back again, and join some of my blogs, Ian!
I've missed you since you left.
I shall return to read your tales.
God may bless you all!
All the Best,
Poet Starry.

Ian, I am just now catching up with you... and I am so glad Elaine is feeling better, the animals have settled in... and life will be a tad easier for you. Congratulations and happy new year!
