Home

IMG_7635Well we bought a house!  It is not a farm, so I’m tucking away that dream, for the moment. But it’s wonderful.  It’s old.  I feel so at home.IMG_7529IMG_7530IMG_7639 The view.  I don’t have my own land but open land is all around me.  I’ve realized over the years that I have a constant, almost subconscious feeling of unease when I look out my window and can’t see out into the distance.  Conversely, now that I can look out across the valley to where field meets mountain and mountain meets the sky, I feel peaceful.IMG_7619The studio.  It needs some plaster work first, but the old summer kitchen, upstairs and down, will be for me and my business. More peace.  And for now, there is a downstairs office where I can set up all my things.  IMG_7510IMG_7512And the living spaces… I am so happy.  It is cozy and comfortable and there’s enough room for all of us to spread out.  It’s hard for 6 introverts to live together in a modern house with an open floor plan.  We need a closed floor plan.  Separate spaces where we can retreat and be ourselves, not feel assaulted by whatever noise the others are making, but still with gathering places where we can come together.  It’s perfect.

  1. It looks beautiful! I love older homes! Mine was built in the 1850’s! Beautiful view, too. I hope you’ll be very happy there!

  2. So glad you found Home with a view that affords a feeling of peace. All yours for years to come. Yay what an uplifting feeling to have one of your own, for your growing family and business.
