What a thrill it has been to sit indoors and watch the weather go by! Of course, I might have enjoyed it juuuuuuust a little more if the weather hadn't chosen to live inside with me, but who am I to complain? A little snow in the house, using the doors and windows as coolers and even freezers... it builds character, right? Yes, we had so much snow inside that we were able to use those pockets of frozen areas to keep our sodas really, really COOOOOLLLLLDDDD.
On the plus side, we now know that, as much as we love our new house, this is probably not where we will choose to settle down for the rest of our lives... hopefully. Several friends are keeping their eyes open for something a little more cozy. We still love our beautiful house. Ourtwardly, it is everything we ever wanted. That is, if you don't count the fact that we want more land than we have here. Unfortunately, as the old saying goes, you can't judge a book by its cover and the book we are living in is filled with stories, untold.
Take, for instance, the many places where Old Man Winter seems quite comfortable in making himself at home... inside our house. Personally, I wouldn't mind so much, but he does insist on bringing that cold, cold air and snow inside with him. Makes it very difficult to heat the old place. Of course, I shall always have a special place in my heart for this dear old house. It is beautiful and, with enough money, I would so love to make the repairs that would allow us to live out our days here.
Still, to all things there is a season and this home is not the thing for the winter season. Thus, when the weather warms up, we shall spend some serious time searching for something more cozy and warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Stay tuned for futher updates, but don't hold your breath; its still pretty frigid outdoors and I am not quite ready to venture out. Until we do, keep a hug on.
