It's going to be a shock...

In less than three weeks we shall be surrounded by all this calm green & fresh air, quite the change from the loud dirty city we're currently still crammed in...

Thankfully the days are flying by so, there's still a LOT to do before we're ready to go - kinda hard to pack because there isn't anywhere left to put any boxes but I'll be creative, just you watch! LOL
Here are a few shots we took on Saturday... first, "The House":

View of the chicken coop from the back garden:

Vegas wondering WTH we're going to do with 12 acres! LOL

The front yard is mostly occupied by grape vines:

Yes we're goofy... but oh so happy :-)

I reckon there will be more photos after we've moved in and made it our own place... I'll try to spare you the chaos and focus on the beauty shots, yes? he he

Hopefully these pics softened the Monday Ugggs a bit, don't forget the coffee (or the tea) and stay tuned for more stuff! For those liking it furry, I posted a new video in the dog blog, also updated the Snapshots blog and posted a new recipe in the yum-yum blog.

Better enjoy it while it lasts... I have a feeling that blogging will have to take a major back-burner soon! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

Love it, love it LOVE IT! I am not a country girl, but for that house and yard, I'd be tempted. Wow, the wait was worth it, right? It's gorgeous! You are so lucky to be moving there! I think someone could write a novel about your life. "Techno of Front Yard Grapes." hahaha.

I want to see all the cool furniture in place! The Museum of Cool, after all. :)

Kathryn said...

Oh. My. God. The house is BEAUTIFUL. And 12 acres? Excellent. The fur kids will be so happy!!

Happy Monday

Kathryn said...

By the way . . . you two are adorably cute. :o) A very happy duo, indeed.

Your home is just delightful. SO pretty and the change of scenery will do wonders for your soul(s)
You will love having no noise but YOUR OWN. The dogs won't know how to act with all the freedom. Is there a fenced area for them to be 'free' and safe?
I do hope you are going to grow grapes and stomp your own wine!!!
Love the pictures of your home, thanks for sharing...really love the silly picture of the blissful husband and wife!

Frank said...

Bah...all that grass and open space and fresh air just makes me sick!

Technodoll said...

Rebecca, LOL LOL! Techno of Front Yard Grapes! :-D

Kathryn, yeah we think it's pretty nice... if the dogs aren't happy there then I don't know what!

Busy Bee, yes they have a big dog run attached to the house & deck in the back and we're building a 100 x 150 ft enclosed paddock for the visiting doggies :-)

Frank, throw-up sick?

Are you moving into a hotel, my friend? This place is amazing. I would love to live somewhere as green and open as this.

Perhaps you will simply invite me for a visit soon? :)

Oh I LOVE the house and the surroundings for you and your new beginning! I things its perfect. I am so happy for you guys!!!

Piper said...

wow the place is georgiouse! I can't believe you are moving from an apartment to that huge house. We moved from a one bedroom apartment to a 3 bedroom house and feel like we have so much room. Good find and I can't wait to see what you do with it all! Congratulations

Piper said...

*gorgeous, I don't know what I had typed before! lol

Surfergrrl said...

it looks AMAZING!!! wow. are you going to make some wine? Congrats, and the picture of you two is just adorable.

Technodoll said...

Prin, unless you can find me a clone... :-o

ToughGirl, I'll share lots of pics if that will help :-)

Francesca, our door will always be open, specially for lovely people like you!

Daring, thank youuuu! See I told you it wasn't so "hickville", LOL!

Piper, I'm sure we won't know what the heck to do with so much space at first and I will curse at all the cleaning, LOL!

Surfergirl, we don't care for all the vines but they're there and someone else volunteered to take care of them this summer... so we'll see what happens!

Lady Banana said...

WOW! WOW! WOW! It's looks fantastic, I am SO jealous! It's a world away from all I know and I'd give my eye teeth to be there.. :)

Its Just Me - Daring to Dream said...

I'm glad its not my version of "bad". I love the green. I just knew "hickville" didnt work with my skin tone, but you would be able to pass even if it was....good luck!

Wayfaring Wanderer said...

What a great spot! Having that much space with no neighbors around is AWESOME, you'll love it!

Now, tell me which window would go to my room?!?!


p.s. HOT DAMN, 4 blogs!

PrincessB said...

WOW! Gorgeous!

Katie said...

That is such an amazing house. It makes me want to chuck city life and go live in the country.

You are going to have such wonderful adventures there.

Seeing these beautiful pictures just made my night happier.
