|Ras, aka AquaGirl, in her element at the water's edge|
After the football games we took my mom and sister to look at the lot. They, too, fell in love at first sight. So what did we do Monday morning? We put an offer in on it...and our lives will never be the same. We've gone from being completely debt-free city dwellers to what our country dwelling friends refer to as cidiots...city idiots. I do see their point as we all make the exodus from the city, all at the same time, to cottage country, only to settle next to our cottage country neighbour at proximities that are likely closer than in the city. We, at least, have 5 acres...does that put us in a lesser class of cidiotism?
The purpose of this blog is to keep a record (since neither of our brains is efficient at record keeping these days) of our journey to reduce our reliance on non-renewable resources and to keep family and friends informed of our adventures as we build a cottage in the woods by the lake. Although I must give credit where credit is due. Thanks to Rita G for your insistence to make our often times laughable follies available for more than just you to chuckle over!
Oh, I forgot to mention one of the important features that the lot we wanted to buy must have: high speed internet....ha!
