So did you notice I changed my header? Just couldn't stand looking at all that snow even one more day. Let's all simply pretend our house and yard look like that photo, above, on this very day, ok? :)
Speaking of photos, I'll include two here, below, of houses for sale in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, the current place of Tom's and my house-hunting online. Why not Mount Airy as I've talked about here for weeks? Well, a friend (hi Wilma!) mentioned she would move to Mount Airy in a heartbeat if only they had the specialized medical facilities she and her husband require. Which reminded me--hey! I am married to Mr. In Need of Specialized Medical Facilities and there's no way we're going to travel 30 miles just to go to his doctor appointments. So, well, now we're considering Winston-Salem and you know? I'm fine with that. Must be good ol' Grace again.
Anyway, these two houses, below, are both only around $36,000(!) Aren't they just the cutest things ever? (Click to enlarge.)
There are lots of photos included with the top house, including the street it's on, which resembles a very friendly-looking country-ish road, lots of trees, the type of street probably on the outskirts of town since I don't believe I saw any sidewalks. (I'll go back and check.)
Winston-Salem has tons of houses in the 35,000 - 60,000 range in neighborhoods of all sorts, good-and-friendly and not-so-good-not-so-friendly. We are believing for a cheap house in the former.
Anyway, I'm sharing these solely for your viewing pleasure. As always, take any mentions of our moving to a whole other state with proverbial grains of salt. :)
