Darrin was on the phone the other day with the power company reporting our outage, among other questions they asked him if our neighbors had lost power too- he just laughed and said, "um, we don't have neighbors."
The closest house is at the end of our road over a mile away, and that doesn't even seem strange to me anymore. It's been 5 months since we left our old 'Big City' life behind and I still can't believe what a different world it is out here. I still can't believe what a peaceful place we've found.....it's like a parallel universe or something.
So today I'm going to take you on a quick tour of our new hood. I'm going to shoot for you some of the little things that make me smile these days.
Yes mom, it will be almost like you were riding along with us!
So we head out on Orange Ave-down on the left is the neighbor.
I love the sky. I never really paid attention to it in Atlanta.
Cows! I still yell out "cows!" when I see them.
This is our traffic. Exactly-there isn't any.
See, it's not all flat! We have hills!
Fun farm thingies filled with corn. Corn!
2 guys ice fishing!
I love this barn, it has cartoon farm animals on it.
The snow is so pretty it makes me think of sand dunes.
More cows! And look at that sky.
And back to Orange Ave...up the gravel road about a mile is our house.
And that's what I call a Drive-by shooting.
In our new world.
