Using my blog to try and make the world a better place. If I can help someone forget their troubles for a few minutes a day, it's all worth it.

I watch the ripples change their size, but never leave the stream of warm impermanent sand. So the days flow through my eyes but still the days seem the same. And these children that you spit on as they try to change their world are immune to your consultations. They're quite aware of what they're going through.

Random find:

I found the above during a recent google search. I live in a log house, that is the same construction as the one above. Mine is sided, but this Spring I'm having the siding removed and I'm going to put the house on the market. The above looks like a 16 x 12, but mine's roughly 32 x 25. I'm going to offer it on 21 acres, and there's alot of further subdivision potential left. All the logs and beams are hand-hewn, and there's wood floors throughout. Most of the rooms have had new wood flooring put in, but 2 of the upstairs bedrooms have the original floors, nailed down with the original hand-forged nails. I've got an attached garage and barn that I also keep my firewood stored in, so I don't have to go outside through the snow to get my firewood for the day. There's a large field next to the house, which is part of the 21 acres, with mountain views all around. We've got 2 fairly decent restaurants in the area, plus there's hunting, fishing, snowmobile trails, and skiing nearby. Also in the back acreage there's wild blueberries, strawberries, and tons of raspberry bushes. I've always been sort of a gypsy, and after being here for 7 years, and it's time for a change. Today I'm going to the real estate broker and officially list it. I plan on moving back to Florida, to the town of Palm Coast, where I lived for several years before I moved up here. If I never see snow again, that'd be fine with me. Not that I'm complaining, or anything.... ;^)

Your property sounds lovely. Good luck with it, I hope you get top dollar! That's quite a move - sounds like you're in for a change indeed. I know the feeling, I'm feeling kinda mid-life-crisis-y myself. :p

Sounds beautiful as a retirement/vacation home too. 21 acres with mountain views must be relaxing. (Snow - not so much. Hooray for the beach!)

joe said...

JSuss: Damn...

Marissa: You want it?

teri said...
