The Hound's Slow Friday

With Sadie whining ... Stella nudging me with her nose ... I could tell I was going to head out for our morning walk before I wanted to. I wanted to wait an hour or two for the temperature to increase from 16° and a wind chill of 0° ... but the hounds always get their way. We were off.

Since I had walked outside with Sadie and Stella after their breakfast while my coffee was dripping into the coffee pot, I knew they had to have some motive to get back outside besides relieving themselves. They had earlier. I also knew it was really really cold.

It was going to be one of those days where neither hound seemed to interested in walking.

The both were given total freedom to do whatever they wanted ... I kept walking.

I did a lot of out loud pondering while I walked. Do I want to trade this neighborhood for one that has actual neighbors living right next to you? Or will the field be taken over by a few ATV riders this summer?

It was good to see that Stella had not wandered off into the woods.

Stella was ready for a warm house.

I am finding out more and more about my housing search. It's like any other housing search ... it's always a pain buying and selling houses. No answers yet, I'll have my answer when I need it.

Sunny but freezing in 'the tropics' of southern Indiana.


  1. I would love to move further south, but the real pain for me would be the actual move. LOL

    Seriously though, the thought IS rather horrifying.

    1. I have to admit the thought of having my house sold and within a mile heading west, all of us are 'homeless' and not sure what house will be available to buy once we get there. When you only find 3 of 87 houses you really like enough to make the move ... it makes the thought process interesting. :)

  2. Ever considered renting for awhile to make sure you like the area ?

    1. I have thought of renting and have talked to a few people that live there. Rentals on realtor dot com shows a few in a large market of houses for sale. Prices are a little high. Plus not many are sure that I am a prime rental customer with TWO LARGE dogs and another that weighs over 25 pounds although short enough.

      I'm thinking once we get there, the rental agencies will have a rental management dept that will have more to offer or more answers for me ... otherwise there is a lot of BLM land just outside of town. LOL
