I imagine gardens and pots of flowers by front doors, hedges and bird feeders.
Deer might wander by in the evenings, the house would be full of flowers, picked that afternoon from the garden. Summer breezes coming through open windows, where all you can hear is birds singing and the sound of the trees rustling in the wind. At night the sound of crickets and maybe the sight of fireflies in the grass.
I can see growing old with children coming to visit with grand babies. Dogs and cats and babies and plenty of room for them all. I imagine Thanksgivings and Christmas in a house like this.
Country life might not be so bad ..
