What’s new? What have you been up to? I feel like I never have anything to tell people when they ask me what is new in my life. Between not having kids and purposefully working to maintain a drama-free lifestyle, nothing comes to mind as particularly worthy to mention. So I usually say “not much” and proceed to live my happy and not-so-notable life.
But there is one exciting thing that I want to tell you about. It’s called Otter Point Woods and is a spit of land that we purchased over the past two years. We purchased an initial 18 acres of lakeshore property (mostly woods and wetland) and a 1920s cottage in August of 2016, and then another 12 acres of adjacent field and forest this past September. It’s hard to believe we’ve had the property more than two years, as I’m still adjusting to it because we find ourselves spending more and more of our time there.
I wrote a forest management plan for the initial property in 2017 (it’s officially a Tree Farm!) and need to update it for the additional acreage. Stay tuned for more as we update the plan.
