There are floodlights on the house, garage, and each outbuilding (I'm renting a farm house), and a mercury vapor security light on a power pole over the driveway.
Thanks to Ama, Alarm/Security Master, I have identified a wireless security system I can get for a reasonable price that will give me some peace of mind (and travel with me to any other place I may rent in the future). Just need to wait for payday.
My DS gave me an early Mother's Day present of pepper spray that attaches to my key ring. I think it's more for his peace of mind than mine, bless his heart.
You can call me NIK
