Thank God I'm a Country Girl!
Now, don't get me wrong; if you know me you know I love to shop, enjoy fine dining, taking in the vastness of the skyscrapers(I've always been crazy about skyscrapers for some silly reason). I love visiting the city. Key word-visiting. But when it comes to everyday living, I'm a front-porch sitting kind of girl.
Stephen and I stumbled upon an ad. It read: "Peaceful, country home, ranch on 1 and 1/2 acres. " It was at a price that seemed to good to be true but we checked it out anyway and thank God we did. It needs a little TLC and is a work in progress but we were anxious to move in.
Its about a 40 min. commute to the Uof I but hey, don't the city folks do at least that every day in bumper to bumper traffic? Or on a stinky, crowded subway or L-train or whatever? Our commute will be of beautiful peaceful countryside. Truly theraputic.
So if you need some fresh air and a little relaxation and just want to "get away," you can come sit on my porch. I'll bring ya a nice ice-cold beverage and a cookie (probably store bought). :)

Oops, when you live in the country you can't leave your work boots outside or Mr. Toady might find a temporary resting place.
These beautiful tiger lilys are everywhere!
