Quick post! We're so excited! We just closed on a piece of property on an island. We're land owners. Wooo hooo!
When hubby was little, his parents owned a piece of property adjacent to a farm. His dad would drive the kids out there and they'd spend an afternoon traipsing around, chasing the dog, making trails, digging ditches, drinking hot chocolate and roasting marshmallows. They'd drive home bone tired and his mom would be waiting with an pizza casserole in the oven. Ever since we've been married, this has been a dream of ours--to have a getaway away from the suburbs. A place for the kids to run free. And now we've got it.
And now the wheels are turning. Now that it's ours, what are we going to do with it? At this point, we're thinking it would be great fun to build a yurt and maybe decorate it like this. Fun stuff to dream about when we're snowed in this week.
We're used to snow. We used to live in Michigan and commuted all winter long with no problems. But Michigan was nice and flat--not hilly like it is here. They plowed and salted there, they don't here. Anyway, here we live on top of a hill, and I'm pretty sure we could drive down it alright, but my concern is whether or not we'd be able to make it back up. So we've been housebound for the past 4 days. Thank goodness we had lots of milk in the fridge and had recently stocked up the pantry. What's especially frustrating about being snowed in is that I have this:
burning a hole in my pocket, and I need to get to JoAnn's so that I can finish this:
BTW, the gift cards? That's what happens when you pay for a roof on your JoAnn's credit card. Heh heh.
