|One of two regulars on Tahilla Farm, I call them Thelma and Louise.|
The day has come, the big bird will land in a few hours. By bird, I do not mean the turkey above,
but an airplane, flying Mr. H safely into Logan Airport in Boston. Some of you may recall that
I took a leap of faith when I decided to buy Tahilla Farm in December 2012. In October, I was on my own, house hunting for the perfect spot. Mr. H said, in the end, it was my decision...but...he really liked the idea of living on the coast of Maine. I went to Maine, and searched and thought I found it until I hit New Hampshire to visit friends. Isn't it the way...the last house on my long journey around New England was 'the one'. It was a gut feel... I knew I had found what I was looking for in Tahilla Farm.
Soooo....he is arriving in a few hours and I am hoping he will see what I see. I think he will. He has had plenty of photos and videos since we bought the house on top of incessant chatter from me on the topic. The good news is that my son Connor loves it. One down four to go. :)
It has been a month since I arrived and I have to be honest, it has been hard work. Creating a house from scratch has been trickier than I thought it would be. I arrived to stacks of boxes waiting to be unpacked and a house that needed a very deep clean. I can now say I know nearly every corner of this house...intimately. Right down to the very large snake skin I found in the crawl space in our basement. Country living has had it's fair share or surprises..and I have loved every one of them..except the snake skin. I could write volumes but time is of the essence and I have to run...but before I go...an idea of what he is in for.
|He will drive to the end of a dirt road..|
|where the sun sets over a mountain..|
|and a full moon rises.|
|He will discover secret spaces amongst the trees..|
|and nature quietly rolling by.|
|In the morning, he will enjoy the sunshine on a country porch...|
|and wander through a garden growing with abandon.|
Fingers crossed he likes it!
From crazy and happy in New Hampshire!
Best wishes for a lovely weekend to one and all...
