What I love about this home
Feed your spirit and go into the woods. I have enjoyed quiet and peace. I took long lazy naps, I listened to my records and sometimes just to the leaves rustling on the trees, I painted, I read books in my hammock and by cozy fires, I went for walks amongst the trees, I fed the birds and the deer, I met great friends and have enjoyed sitting on the deck with them and enjoying a bottle of wine, I kayaked on the lake, I wrote, I watched TV, I cooked fresh meals, I enjoyed the local farmers markets, I loved fishing on the streams and lake, and I took beautiful nature photos that I will cherish. I will miss this place. It was so good for me and let me unwind during stressful periods of my life. If I wasn?t moving – I would definitely not be selling – words from the current owner.
