“My window faces the South, and [we’re] almost half way to heaven…”
(Please see the notes on this song at the end of the post!)
Follow me, through the woods…
Past the pony who’s escaped his pasture.
Hello, naughty Pony!
Past some pretty new flowers of spring.
We’ll follow along the creek for a bit,
and beyond the water pump,
and the pond,
The new Farmlet!
An antique home (174 years and counting) on 23 acres with a pond for Polly and Frellnick, and that wonderful walking trail you just accompanied me on through the woods and along the creek!
Looking from the front you will see the rock fireplace, which is where the old log cabin was constructed in the 1840s. Later, the home was expanded in the 1920s to the proportions you see here. In 2006, there was an addition of a large bedroom and bath in the back. All of the wood for the construction over the years came from the property.
I can’t wait to show you the inside, but wait we must until the escrow closes.
I feel as if I am in a dream, and now understand why God said, “No” the first time around.
We are so blessed!
I want to thank each and every one of you for your prayers and heartfelt good wishes. They mean so much!
May all your blessings be returned to you tenfold!
NOTE: The refrain above is from “My Window Faces the South.” It was written back in back in 1937 by Jerry Livingston, Abner Silver and Mitchell Parish. I always assumed, incorrectly, that it was a Commander Cody and his Lost Planet Airmen original. Who knew? I sure didn’t! It was made popular by Fats Waller and has remained so to the present day.
