I am a 55 yr old divorced woman, no kids, 2 horses, short hair...) did I lose you there? (Short hair is quicker, easier and a lot less painful with an old neck injury)....if long hair is your thing, then pass me by please.. I am trim, 5 ft 6 inches, fairly able bodied but allergic to cities and much technology ; ~ ...I am loyal, caring, a bit of a homebody, open minded, creative thinker, (what box??) I am of the mindset that well planned is half done, and I enjoy planning, brainstorming and co-creating, especially with another. Then build it! : )
I have a dream, a long held dream, to build a nice cozy, energy efficient home that is earthy, natural and preferably snugged into a south facing hillside..I love to think about and plan the details, but have had to abandon the dream many times as it just became too painful to have it just out of reach..
Currently I am living on 4.5 acres in SW Idaho, near where I grew up, so now I have childhood friends around again, I was away for about 12 years and it was nice to return to friends and a little bit of family.. I am fine being essentially a homebody, other than some select road trips, camping etc I have ZERO need to go out, do the normal entertainment stuff or malls or the like, give me a nice yard/garden my critter friends (I don't eat my friends, mostly vegetarian here) and add in a best friend buddy partner and I am a happy camper.. I enjoy quiet activities mostly, not into auditory bombardment.... watching the grass grow is good, and a lot more of it in later years in summer, winters, would like to cozily watch most of the deep winter happen from inside, from my/our huge attached sunroom/greenhouse... I walked a suitable lot a couple weeks ago, got me dreaming again, potentially sell this place and go for the dream... but I want to do it with someone, tired of flying solo on the life thing........Any potentially like minded folks feeling the same way? DD
I hear ya... 53 here, way down in Texas. More than enough dirt, no mortgage, a plethora of animals, a large market garden and a too be orchard, and other fruit. Thinking the same things as I walk around here every day. Why... why do I do this alone, when there must be someone else asking the same questions, lol. Would love to talk if your interested, or just talk about life, or? The grass grows kinda slow, but you might be able to watch it, lol.
You've gotta fight it! Don't give in! Read this tiny ad:
