"When the LORD your God brings you into the land he swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, to give you—a land with large, flourishing cities you did not build, houses filled with all kinds of good things you did not provide, wells you did not dig, and vineyards and olive groves you did not plant—then when you eat and are satisfied, be careful that you do not forget the LORD, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery."
~ Deuteronomy 6: 10-12
Alfred and I have found the most perfectly wonderful home for sale. It has everything we could possibly want: a little coy pond, a fire pit, a green house, an outbuilding, a raised bed vegetable garden, potting table, a landscaped yard, sunroom, dining room, breakfast room, an office, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, hardwood floors, a walk-in pantry, lots of closets, and lots of cabinets in the kitchen!
It is beautiful inside and out. The walls are painted a warm creamy neutral color with white trim - so no painting is needed. The home has been well taken care of and we know it is the home for us!
We looked at it last night with a realtor and are going back tomorrow to look at it again during the daylight hours, particularly the yard. We'll see where we end up, but I am hoping like crazy that we can at last become homeowners.
This one thing I am certain of: There is such a thing as love at first sight!
