Blissview Acres

 Last year Hubby and I bought a little house that sits on five acres. We had been searching for a place for several years. We found many almost perfect places, but they never became reality for one reason or another. However, as each place became a "no", the next place was always a little more perfect than the previous one.  Of course, since we couldn't see into the future, each "no" brought with it frustration and disappointment.

In 2011, someone told us about a place they passed everyday while going to work. We said we'd check it out, but never got around to it. Then in the fall, we were reminded about it again, and decided to check it out. It was a foreclosure, and had been empty for 18 months or so. Our searches had consisted mainly of foreclosures. So, we weren't put-off at all at the first sight of it.
We were much more concerned with the inside of the house.

And, we wanted enough land to work with.

To make a long story short, we were completely blessed by God with this property. The reason I know this is because after we bought it, everybody and their brother told us how they had tried to buy it, but couldn't get to first base on it. 

After lots of elbow grease, paint, sweat, and more sweat, things are shaping up. (I have some after pictures, but as slow as my computer is running, I don't think I'll have time to post them, because I should be getting ready for work right now. But, I'm sure sometime this year, I'll get around to it. I think. If I don't forget.)

So I will abruptly end this post by saying, we have named our little farm "Blissview Acres", because it brings us much bliss.

(And, may I just say to everyone who commented on yesterday's post, "thank you". I appreciate it so much. And, I've missed you all! I will be around to visit soon!)

Take care, and till next time,


  1. That's wonderful that you've found a bit of your bliss. Are you planning your garden already?

  2. Such a lovely place, we still search for ours!

  3. Congrats on taking something, and making it more than it was when you found it. Even better that you see God's hand in your life. Well done.

  4. The place does have a nice view! I'm pretty sure I provide the bliss though, :)

  5. How wonderful that you were blessed to find that lovely place , especially after being disappointed with other properties. I'm sure that made this one even more special! We would all love to see photos!
