    I love the 8 months that don't include the summer. I love that I work a mile away, the supermarket, bank, gas, car wash, drug store, are all a mile away. I have an acre in a neighborhood where everyone has an acre. And after 12 years of hating a job, I have 3 years so far of liking a job.

    That I live outside of the city limits which allows me to have chickens. That I live in a small town,well alot smaller than Raleigh NC. That we have 4 seasons and we don't get to much bad weather.

    I love that if I am standing outside my bank 15 minutes before it opens, they will open for me, or stay late if I call and say I will be there 15 minutes after they close. I love that I live 37 seconds from my job at the hospital and that our community hospital has all of 56 beds total for all the units. I love that I have the mountains in one direction and the ocean in the other all within 2 hours either way. And for those rare occasions that I need a homgok and BBQ pork bun from China town in San Francisco I can get there and back before dinner. And I love that fact that I can call my small town doc when I get home from driving in the city and he will call in anxiety meds without having to see me [​IMG]

    No traffic. No traffic lights. No nosey neighbors looking over the fence. Not a single Walmart within 60 miles of here. Lots of trees. Plenty of quiet. 3 hours from the nearest city!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    GEE... maybe I am a bit of a recluse.

    I love that I cannot see a neighbors house from mine, or from my yard (except when I'm down in the lower meadow by the river - if I look up the ridge I can see my neighbors lights)

    I love that my 5 acres is so private it feels like living in a park! That for the first time in my life I can see the milky way without a telescope. That I have deer, and coyote, and a bear living in my woods.

    That the culture of a college town is only 25 minutes away if I want to go to a play or concert.

    I love the natural beauty. The peace and quiet.... until 4:30am when Mario the Roo starts going off!

    I love that I am out where I can see the stars at night and set up a telescope if I want.

    I love that there are no street lights, no traffic noise and no smog.

    I love that by the time I get home in the afternoon, the drive was long enough and beautiful enough that my job doesn't exist until tomorrow.

    I love that our neighbors are far enough away for privacy, but close enough for a cuppa coffee or gossip at the gate between our properties.

    I love that we bought when we did. Couldn't afford to live here now!

    I love the neighborhood of caring folks who welcomed us with open arms when we moved in.

    I love that the little feed store, while a bit higher in price than the city, will leave me a bag of feed outside the door if I am running late and don't get there in time. They just have me settle up later.

    I love that when I take vacation, there is no place I enjoy more than being right here.

    There are just too many to list.
