Looking for land

I’m looking for land now. The process is more difficult because I have no idea where I want to live. Within 100-150 miles of a certain place, but that’s a lot of research to do! Unemployment, job prospects, poverty level, town atmosphere, topography, and air/water quality all come into play.

I’m looking for a place I’ll want to live for the rest of my life. I’ve never had that consideration before. Maybe I shouldn’t be looking for “the perfect place”, but why not?

There are a few places that seem like they may be possibilities. Gorgeous area, small town atmosphere, older buildings in town, city well maintained, walking trails and waterways nearby… I think I could find a job within six months, and could make ends meet and work on the house in the meantime. My goal at this point is to start building next spring. I still have some downsizing to do, and have to check with the counties on codes. A few acres in a peaceful area, close enough to town that I can bike, far enough out that I will see trees instead of subdivisions. Enough land to have a few fruit trees and a nice garden. It’s a nice dream, one I hope to wake up to find is real in the near future.

About thrugracealone

I'm a country girl raised city. I prefer open windows to AC, love a good thunderstorm, and enjoy hearing the owls and seeing lightning bugs. A bit old-fashioned, maybe, I can recognize many trees by name, resent elms and weeds, wish for a large garden and canning skills, and hope someday to downsize and get a few acres in the country. I am blessed with a terrific church, a good job, a sturdy house, two cats and a yard full of strawberries and mulberries in the right season. Some of my other favorite things to do are spoiling nieces and nephews, reading, swimming, biking, long walks, and blogging, of course. One of my favorite stories is creation. My abbreviated version goes like this: 1In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2Now the earth wasa formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters... And God moved... And God said... And it was very good. If God can speak to darkness, to an earth without form and void, and make something like this that we see everyday, and make it very good (and it was even better before the Fall!), He will surely make something wonderful out of the dark, void situations I sometimes find myself in. He has, and it's been very good. Two top posts: Can a Person Lose their Salvation? http://wp.me/p1CY5z-1R Baptism! http://wp.me/s1CY5z-baptism
