This would be me...


waiting to see what will happen next

Because we've been looking pretty seriously at new houses.
 Here's a peek at another one we all really like.





Praying for God's will!  But this one fills all the wish list specs: 1) nice and big, but not too big; 2) has a great room concept; 3) a nice big kitchen with a gas stove (we hate electric!); 4) lots of natural light; 5) big fireplace; 6) tons of storage; 7) big two car garage; 8) awesome two-story barn; 9) plenty of mature shade trees, fruit trees, mulberries, asparagus patch, rhubarb, etc.; 10) tons of birds and wildlife (within a five minute drive down the road the other day, we saw a deer, a weasel, a hawk, an oriole, a red-headed woodpecker, and a grey fox!); 11) lovely pasture area for livestock; 12) woods and a creek to fish in right across the street; 13) on 11 acres, with no neighbors in the armpit (more like one at its elbow and a couple others somewhere in the edge of its periphery vision); 14) within a half hour of both church and Dan's job; 15) less than 10 minutes from the grocery store, Hancock's Fabrics, and a really cool little diner with $1 soft serve ice cream cones.... All just within our price range.  (How'd that happen?)

Not taking anything for granted here, mind you -- and will be satisfied with whatever God has in mind, but I won't lie to you -- I'm already scrolling through my mental paint chips for wall colors in this house...  Deus vult, though.  We're praying on it.  (Very ready to be our own landords again, folks!)

I know, huh, Cathy! I did a double-take when they told us there was an asparagus patch! How cool would that be?
