Moving from city to country

Category: Country Living | Posted: Fri Jul 11, 2008 5:47 pm

WELCOME!
I am new to this "blog", thing, so please understand as I am sure I will be making many errors.
It was a major change when I decided to move from Massachusetts to Maine three years ago. I lived in a town with a population of over fifty thousand and came to this little village with a population of less than a thousand. I had no idea that there would be such a difference. I bought a 200 year old farm house with 25 ac. I wanted pets and lots of room for gardening. My hopes were to open a nice country Bed & Breakfast. That hasn't happened yet but I still would like to someday. I have my yellow lab, Buster, my siamese cat, Baron, and lots of chickens.
Winters in this part of the country are brutal with temps dropping to as low as 25 below and the snow is relentless.
I hope to share lots of ideas with others and look forward to hearing from folks.

Good start on your blog, congrats.

Wow, an old farm house with 25 ac. Man, that sounds like a wonderful way to live. I would certainly enjoy the winters.

I look forward to more of your blog entries.

I moved from the city of Edinburgh to a small town and then to our cottage here in a village. I love it more than I can say as there's no more thundering traffic, drunks rolling out of pubs or heavily polluted air. Your 25 acres sound wonderful and I'd love to see some photographs of your land as well as you animals. Winters aren't quite as cold as yours are here in Scotland. I think the lowest w've ever dropped to is -15.
