the spa vs our spa, why do they, football :(

my relatives they who were here recently have a friend who
is taking over a local spa on the lake and redoing it
my relatives they took us to the spa to meet him and
tour the place

the spa has 70 units and is located above the lake here
for all the people there and the surrounding area it was so
the wind blows through the trees and there were no outside noises

what a great place to go for a weekend getaway
my wife she has a friend who is going there for a weekend
has been there before
total relaxation    quiet environment   long trails to walk in
spa  good food   must feel refreshed after 2 days there
must feel recharged also

some businesses will send their employees there for a week

my wife she and i looked at each other as we were leaving the
we knew

we have to put up with this every day where we live
we sit near the river surrounded by ranch land
we have a prevailing wind that is blowing most of the time
we open our  house most of the time     the wind blows through our
upper deck through our bedroom down our stairs   turns then goes
out our other bed room back through the back door
you can stand in the hallway and the breeze blows across you like
you were on the front of a moving boat    very refreshing

we have it so quiet here that if you have
tinnitus(ringing of the ears) it is very loud

in am we  watch the fog on the pastures(looks like england or ireland)
we watch the deer move across the pastures
at times watch turkeys move across them
at night hear whippoorwills, owls, turkeys, and coyotes in the distance

many mornings we watch all this and the sun rise
while in our hot tub on our lower deck

in the evenings we watch the sun set off our upper deck and
watch the deer come back to the pastures

yes we have a spa-like environment at our house-it
is always there

life is good

why do they leave the stop lights red in the middle of the night
when no one is around but you
do you run them or do you just sit and wait

dang those cowboys
well there are 12 more games left
cant give up yet

  1. That's a dream that I have. To have a beautiful piece of land in the middle of nowhere and have a refurbushed old barn with an open concept. Windows open and enjoying all that nature has to give. I love to watch the wildlife.

    You and your wife deserve the best. Glad to see ya'll enjoy each and every day.
