Back From The Country

A quick trip to the country this cloudy and dreary day. Someone that has helped through the years put up a post for me with the address numbers on it. Looks like someone lives in those woods and also in case 911 needs to find me. Hopefully not. Several neighbors stopped on the road and warmly shared with me.

One more piece of the puzzle fell in place. Electric company just called and said there will be no problem putting current to this 1200 to 1400 feet off the road property and no extra cost. That was something I did not think I would hear. So water department contacted and also gas company. Now health department about septic system approval. Then the big one is sitting down with my builder and showing him my sketch.
We will go to the material supply source and get estimates.
So it will be interesting to see if this is going to be a dream or a reality. I may have a shelter next Spring instead of a chair under a tree.

Oh, I almost forgot I saw a dozen wild turkey coming down the road but could not stop car and get my camera out fast enough.
Also wrote a neighbor that joins my woods on my back line to alert him that family will be in those woods and I want no deer hunting.
As I read some of my postings I have the thought - I sound rather simple and boring.

Some afternoon thoughts from this One Woman on her Journey Through this life.

you go to the country every Friday it seems. Did the neighbor agree to not shoot into your land???
Hope it all works out.

Meredith said...

I think you sound FASCINATING! I look forward to seeing your plans.

Liza on Maui said...

did i miss a post announcing your move to the country or something? wow.... I thought you're done building ;) - but like meredith said, sounds fascinating.

Beverly, I have to go every week to check on things to see if this is going to be possible. I can leave no stone unturned.
If I build something I want to start in January so I can use it starting in April. Meredith, thank you, maybe this ancient one should not even attempt this and Liza, I am just dreaming and doing some investigation on country property. I have been documenting my thoughts over the last months.

Oh my, you are anything but boring....I think your plans are amazingly imaginative and they are allowing your creative spirit to shine. That is wonderful about the power lines. Being in the building business, I know how pricey that can be as many of our projects are far back off the beaten path.
This is so exciting and I am so hapy you are taking many of us along on the journey!

Darlene said...

I am so happy that you have this project to look forward to. I am sure that you will be building now. Best to you.

Never simple, never boring. I have always dreamed of creating a home or cabin from my own plans. I envy you that I admit, but so enjoy sharing your dream.

Liza on Maui said...

wow! another dream to pursue. I know you can do it.

clown princess said...

You wonder if this dream is something you should seriously pursue at this stage in your life. I say by all means. You see, right here, right now in this moment in time, this is the only life we have. I believe that when it is within our means and capability to do so one should follow their dreams and desires rather than live with regret. Follow your heart.
