HOME

We are moved! Out of the old and into the new - well almost - I think the unpacking process and figuring out where things go will take some time. Here is a picture of the front door area, which has a curved set of stairs leading from the driveway, surrounded by flower beds. I am looking forward to digging in the dirt next Spring. I cropped out the sides of the picture to hide the address and to hide the realestate sign that was still up (lol) so all you get to see is the middle of the house for now!
The day after moving in we went to work planting trees. You can see we are in the flat-lands of the valley here, about as country as you can get in this area. We still have nice views of the mountains to the East. Our little Jack Russell, Blue, loves to run, so he loves the yard. He's the little white spot in this picture! There are neighboring horses that Blue adores also. All for now, I'll post more as time permits! These are still very busy days!!!

From Joy: Oh! Your new home looks great - pretty flowers in front and that is always good. Blue seems to really like the wide open spaces and you are already planting trees for him to "enjoy." Hope you will soon be unpacked and ready to play with your toys. Best wishes for you all in our new home - may it be full of love, happiness and good thoughts, Joy
