Well, we finally have the internet up and running at our new place, and it's so nice to be back to blogging! There are so many things I have been waiting to write about, but I think I'll start by telling you about the wonderful little home that the Lord has provided for us.
I call it "Little House on the Ranch" (in Ingallsian fashion, of course). For approximately the same low rent as our old two bedroom apartment in the city we now live in a 3 bedroom manufactured home on a 400+ acre cattle ranch.
We aren't responsible for helping out on the ranch at all, but we do get the fun of periodic visits from longhorn cattle, goats, deer, roadrunners and other Texas wildlife- all in our front yard! (The cows even lick my windows sometimes!) Even though I'm not technically responsible for any outdoor work, I like to go out in our yard with a shovel and remove manure- cleans things up a little, and I get to pretend I'm a farmer :-)
M is, of course, tickled with the animals, and she and I get to enjoy nice walks on the property. The ranch is situated in the hill country and has some lovely views. Just another example of the many good things that the Lord has brought out of the apartment fire!
