Lot not for sale - house post #1

August 2012


This is the lot
that was recently bought.
 (well not really recently, but with all we've had on our plates and for the sake of rhyme and because I want to, I'm saying recently)

So now you can see
where we'll hopefully be
next year when the weather turns ugly.
(ok, I probably shouldn't say that because the weather can turn ugly pretty much anytime here in Oklahoma- here's the change...)

So now you can see
where we'll hopefully be
next year when the weather turns cold
or before we get more old
or that will not be sold (again)
or ...
let's just stop with cold.
It sounds better that way.

Done.

We purchased this land from a brother and sister who's mother had left it to them. For them, it had originally been a 10 acre plot where their family had horse fields and a very funky, awesome house (that is currently being renovated & looks very modern and awesome- so excited to get to know those neighbors).  The house sits on 5 acres (I believe) and just south of that there is a two acre field that was sold to the neighbor and it has horses on it. Our lot is to the east of the house. We were told it used to be a horse field. The August fires a couple of years ago went through and cleared things out and then nature took advantage and regrew beautifully. Last year, we got a machete and spent hours trying to make a path to see what we could see. We didn't see much and we didn't get very far. But it was fun and no one came out of there with ticks. Yay. 

We feel so fortunate to have found property like this in our area. When I met the brother & sister & their spouses (my mr. and I got to meet everybody because of the way Oklahoma conducts it's business), we had a great visit. I felt a kindred spirit in the sister and loved her positive sweet energy.
We hope to make our new home a beautiful, happy place - just like they had years ago.
